Today: 235.6 / LDW: 239.6 / Net: -4.0
I probably shouldn’t have… but I let myself have a treat for dinner… We had Vietnamese Noodle Bowls (Bun Thit Nuong). I love those things, and we used to have them 3 or 4 times a month. We haven’t had them since I started my hCG journey – so, it’s been right around 3 months. It’s a crazy number of carbs (80), but overall pretty low in calories (650) for the amount of food you get. I ate almost all of mine. I feel a bit bloated… but content. 🙂
Now, I just need to make myself get up and actually do my exercises in the morning. Today was a day off, since I do my full body measurements on Wednesdays – I just don’t have time to exercise too. I did walk around the office building today, at least. That’s 1/2 mile in about 10 minutes.
I lost a total of 1.25 inches this week – .25 each from: the fatty area above my waist, waist, hips, around both thighs, & my calf. Since I started hCG, I’ve lost a total of 25 inches over 12 measurements – and 31.6 pounds. Since I started working on my weight, I’ve lost a total of 52.5 (YES, over fifty!) inches over those same 12 measurements! (neck, bust, chest[bra strap], upper rt arm, lower rt arm, above the waist, waist[belly button], hips, low hip/butt, around both thighs, upper rt thigh, rt calf) I’ve also lost a total of 68.4 pounds from my highest point!!
Wow. It’s been a pretty long journey so far with many ups & downs…
I began my journey back in May 2005. But I wasn’t really ready to make a long term change. I dropped down from 290ish to 235 over a years time. But, it pretty much all came back. In April of 2007, I started another journey down – reaching a ‘low’ of 265 by the end of the year. I tried going on Weight Watchers – but didn’t lose ANY weight on that during the year I was doing it – just yoyo’d between 275 & 269. Then I crept up again. Started exercising & food logging for a couple months, went from 282 to 279 – then I got sick & didn’t log anything (or even exercise) for around 6 months. June of 2010 is when I really started getting serious about taking care of myself – at a weight of 304, I knew something had to be done & it had to be a life long commitment. I started out with South Beach & then just started being careful with my eating. I had lost around 27 pounds when I finally decided to try the hCG.
My eventual goal is to get back under 200 pounds… I really do think I can do it! (Only 36 pounds to get there!) That will mean over 100 pounds lost since June 2010.
My 20 year high school reunion is next year – and I really don’t want to be one of those “whoa, what happened to you?” people… I’d much rather be one of those “woah, you look hot!” people. 🙂
Breakfast was an omelete with spinach, artichoke, & parmesan, dubliner cheese, & coffee/cream. Lunch was a cobb salad with bleu cheese dressing. Dinner was bun thit nuong.
