I am happy to announce that Round 1 is complete and a success!!! I quit the HCG drops on Thursday and began my 3 days of 500 calories without the HCG drops to complete Round 1.
Today, is my final day of 500 calories and I am soooo happy to be finished. It was a long 39 days but yet, it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be either.
I quit 1 day early because my weight had been up and down over the past 10 days...up 2 days and down 1 that no matter what I lost or gained wasn't going to change the fact that I would have to go Round 2 to meet my goal of 135 lbs.
Tomorrow, after church...we are going to Colton's for lunch and I am meeting my sweet friend, Dorinda on Wednesday morning for breakfast! Awwww....that sounds so good to be able to say that.
My final weight that I must maintain is 158.6. I can't gain more than 2 lbs. or lose more than 2 lbs. to stablize my weight, reset my body's set weight and maintain this for 6 weeks.
I might not have lost a lot of weight the last half but I lost inches. I don't always see the results of my efforts until I see pictures or take measurements.
I measured today after 38 full (500 calorie diet days) since I started and I have lost a total of...get ready for this....
36 3/4 inches and 25 pounds!!!
Here are the pictures that I made this week. I wore this shirt on July 27th and I had to stretch it before putting it on. I knew when I was there that I was going to begin this program in two weeks and I knew that I was big but when I saw the pictures...oh, my goodness...even, I was shocked at how bad I looked.
I put the same shirt on the other day and made pictures again in it. Check them out and see the difference that 25 lbs. and 36 3/4 inches makes in a person's body.
