Hi, My name is Kimberly. I decided to blog about my journey to a healthy me. At present I am 50 yo, I weigh about 225 lb (edit...down to 185) I am 5' 10" tall; Re-married Mom of 2 wonderful "boys" (24& 25). I work as an executive assistant, have a fabulous Husband and life would be perfect if I could just learn to budget, get my bills paid and reduce my size by about 60 (edit: 20 more) lb!

Just call me stable Mabel, lol

doing terrific at the stabalizing. I will be going camping this weekend and thru the 4th. Woot! I have the luxury hotel of TENTS!  it is HUGE!  and of course my queen size double high air mattress.
I have been planing all week, I have made pumpkin muffins, P3 friendly of course. and some flaxseed crackers, and blue cheese gluten free crackers. freezing some muffins and Flaxseed Sandwich buns...gluten free, low carb, grain free!!!! I will use them for hamburgers.

I even have a pancake recipe that is grain free. so when I am making them for everyone, I can have them too!!!  I am very excited to go on this trip and NOT Gain any of the weight back. Bringing lots of fruit for snacks so I avoid the ice cream stand. and hummus and veggies for the beach...no chips!!!

I am PLANNED for food! now I just need to start planning clothing, and sunscreen and bug repelent. LOL
I will be off the grid the entire time we are in Maine. no cell service either...hopefully I won't be going thru technology withdrawals when I return! :)

Sorry Blogger I have neglected you!

I have been so focused on tracking my foods in SparkPeople that I have neglected my Blog!
I am doing TERRIFIC!
My last injection weight was 196. Today, 8 days into P3 I weigh 196 exactly.
Woo Hoo!!!
I have really stabalized well. I thought for some reason in my first round that beans were allowed in P3. I am not sure why I didn't think they were a starch, so no corn, no beans, no other starches, no sugar.

I have made up for the starches with nut flours. I made chocolate flaxseed flour muffins. Sooooo yummie.
Almond flour gingersnaps. also so awesome my DH keeps stealing them.
Oopsie bread, which is NOT like bread but kinda...you have to try it to understand. it is very eggy.but you can make a sandwich out of it.
LOVING cheese! but need to limit it as I was up 2 lbs after making zuccini crust pizzas.  took it easy with nuts and cheeses the next day. and was back down to LIW.
Doing the happy dance!

Day 3 off HCG, getting ready for P3

So this is the 3rd day off HCG. I am HUNGRY for the first time in a WHILE!
I found a GREAT P3 friendly snack - Raisin, Almond balls.
It is basically raisins, almonds and cinnamon, put in a food processor and then rolled together.
No other ingredients. so this will make a nice snack starting tomorrow.
I will post to my recipe page too!
I have been to the grocery and bought avacado, eggs, more spinach, whey protein and cheese. and a few Fage yogurts.
Not going to eat that much yogurt in P3 but it might be good to add to protein shakes.
I can't wait till tomorrow and so different foods.
I thought sure I could eat beans in P3 but double checking...nope! drat!
Tomorrow I am going to have a nice salad with turkey bacon, avacado and snow peas. yay.
And a mushroom omlet for Brkfst.
I think DH is making smoked turkey legs for dinner. yum!
I have stayed at 195 for the last 2 days. woot!  Going to work very hard to stabalize and be ready for my next round and get to GOAL!
Doing the very very happy dance.
If I felt any better today, I'd be twins!

Not Feeling it today.

Feeling rather BLAH. can't decide if I want to do 15 more days or NOT.

However my motivation is waining.

So I seem to go a few days and hold the same weight, then will drop a lb or 2 so I can't complain. I am the lowest I have been in years and years!
I reached my first goal of getting to ONEderland!
I just bought a BRAND NEW Car...not just one NEW to me, but BRAND new! I am sooooooo excited.
Now when I want to overeat. I go for a drive. LOL
I SHOULD be going for a WALK! but baby steps, I am NOT eating whatever is driving my craving and that is a plus!

Hoping to get my bike tuned up soon, so I can start riding around the lake. :)
doing great sticking to plan. Feeling Fantastic. I have one more vial of HCG which should take me about 15 more days from Monday or Tuesday, depending on when this batch is out.
Hoping for another 10 lbs off by the end of this round.
That would bring me to 187 or so.
Soooo close to my FINAL goal of 170!!

Only 1 lb from first goal!

This morning I weighed in at 200 exactly.
yay. I ate popcorn last night which is NOT on protocol, but I didn't get to eat. I took Tyler my friends 5 yo to the movies. He had a hot dog for dinner, but I didnt see anything I really wanted. Not too many HEALTHY choices. I did get the celery and carrot sticks w/lowfat ranch, and a water....can you beleive they charged me $4.50 for a bottle of water!?
And I did eat popcorn.
Today is a busy day! Tyler was up at 5:30 am!  I am cleaning and checking e-mail while he is watching cartoons.  Next is shower and get dressed. Then I am going to pick up my NEW CAR!!! yay!
I am stressing the higher car payment, but I am getting a Brand new car as opposed to a used one. At some point I need to go grocery shopping.

Then it going into Boston to hang out with friends. BUSY BUSY Saturday!!!!

I read a post today that said TGIT...Thank God it's TODAY.
It basically said we make everyday good or bad, and why wish for Friday all week, make everyday GREAT.
So TGIT!!!
I am doing GREAT on the HCG diet this round. I have 1 lb to my 1st goal of UNDER 200!

This weekend is a FULL one. My mother leaves to drive to AR today at 1:00pm, and my DH leaves to drive to NY today at noon.
Mom will be gone 2 weeks visiting family, DH will be gone only for the weekend to visit an old friend.

My weekend is planned out! 
Hopfully picking up my " NEW to me" Car this afternoon, praying financing goes thru.
Babysitting for a 5 yo tonight. Thinking of taking him out to the movies to see KungFoo Panda. 
Saturday - Yoga, then cleaning, then maybe out dancing with friends.
Sunday - Church choir, a walk around the lake, and spending some time with ME, myself and I.

Make today FABOULOUS!
