Last Friday, I bought a 20 pound bag of ice. I forgot to pick it up, so I left my cart with the employee at the door, and went to get it. She asked, "Can you carry a 20 pound bag?" and I thought to myself, "three and a half weeks ago, I WAS carrying around an extra 20 pounds!" Then, I picked up the bag. It was HEAVY!! Twenty pounds is a LOT of weight! I still have a long way to go to reach my long term goal, but I could be half way there by the end of the summer! I could be a "New Me" by Christmas!
When I started this weight loss journey 29 days ago, I was afraid. I was afraid that it wouldn't work for me...more than that, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to do it! But I've proven myself wrong. I KNOW I can do it! I KNOW now that I DO have willpower! I was also afraid to tell people that I was doing "that crazy HCG diet". So, for the first week, I didn't tell anyone except my family (and my blog readers, of course!) But then the results were so amazing!! I kept telling people! Most were very supportive & some were concerned...but I had done my research, and the benefits outweighed the only negative I could find...only eating 500 calories a day. I kept telling myself, "I can do anything for 21 days!" And I did! For 27 days! My ONLY cheat was eating 4 small pickle slices on day 24.(But considering I was at an ice cream/hamburger joint, that wasn't too bad!)
I am SO glad that I pushed through my fears and did this! I lost 19.2 pounds on Phase 2, and I started Phase 3 today. I am planning to exercise on this phase, and NOT CHEAT! I hope to reach my 25 pound weight loss goal on this phase. If you have been considering the HCG diet, PLEASE give it a try! Put your ALL into it! You can do ANYTHING for 21 days! At the end, you may not only lose weight, but you may FIND things out about yourself that you never knew! I'll be starting Round 2 on my birthday, June 28, and I'll check back with you then to let you know how it's going.
