Half way!
Weight:  227.8

Man, my body is just not giving it up this week. I'm sure it my water intake so today I'm working on my third cup of water! 156 oz if I drink it all lol having chicken breast for dinner though smells delicious! Trying to start a business is hard work no doubt, but never under estimate the will of a momma trying to get out of debt!

It's only tuesday?
Weight: 229.2

Long day... I have a cold. That doesn't help! I'm just really tired... I'M not sure what is causing me not to lose weight. I think it must be onions I had them for the past two nights but who knows?

Are you serious?!
Weight: 230.0

Yes, you read that correctly.  230 lbs. This goes to show you, nothing is impossible with Jesus! That's a 1.6 lbs loss. What a way to end week 2 :) only 4 weeks to go in round 1! This year is just going to fly by because of all the business... 2016 is going to be a whorl wind! I need to take extra pictures this year so I don't take a single moment for granted!

Under The Weather
Weight: 231.6

Another .8 lbs down... hopefully I will see a 230 on the scale tomorrow! I'd love to start week 3 like that. I am not feeling good at all though. It has to be the stress of wedding planning, registries, working, starting my it works! business, and taking of my family. A lot of men just don't realize how many balls we as women have in the air at the same time... To ourselves we feel fragile  and helpless, like we could crack any second under the pressure. To our husbands, they think "she's got it. She always has it", and to our children? We're superheroes!  Goodnight Bloggers

A Third of The Way
Weight: 232.4

Lost .8 ! Probably won't make it to my 7.5 lbs this week since I had the rough week with my period.  That is okay though.  A loss is a loss. .. today is Friday so payday is here!  That means I will start my it works journey ! I am very excited to hopefully be my own boss and work from home some day.  I read the success Stories and  some of them were just looking for a little extra cash and it turned into an empire... I want that to be me!  Right now I am just looking for $150 a month to put my son through preschool... I hope my goals will grow bigger and bigger!  And if I make more than I planned,  that's more for the honeymoon savings account!  I am very excited for all the great things to come. I am so blessed with a wonderful hardworking man and a perfect son,and I want to be the best mommy and wife I can be.

Wedding Planning Palooza
Weight: 133.2

Hip hop hurray! ho, hey, ho! Lost 1.4 lbs very exciting and has put me in the mood to plan this shin dig! I have a little over 6 months until the wedding which is exciting. The only bad part are these numbers! Have to stay in budget, have to lose wight, have to count calories... numbers numbers numbers! Lol I'll get over it. The more money we don't spend on the wedding, is more money we can have saved for our dream house! Of course we will have to keep saving and saving but I cannot wait to be in the home we will raise our children in! That's my American dream!

You're annoying
Weight: 234.6

Down .8 from my big fat goose egg yesterday. I should be thinking  " that much closers to my goal" but I'm actually thinking "that is not enough. .. I am nerd going to make my goal with number like these". Yes, a lot of people can't lose this is a week, let alone a single day on diet and exercise. But this isn't just any old diet. This is a controveral diet that limits you to 500 calories a day!  I expect results not a zero.. especially when I'm so big for my height.  I am 5'2" and I'm STILL 100 lbs over weight according to the BMI chart that stares you in the face when you hobble into the doctors office,  telling you the you're still fat.... I'm in a sour mood today obviously, and I really shouldn't be a aloud to be around people today. Everyone is annoying and everything annoys me.

You Have Got to be Kidding Me
Weight: 235.2

Well, as you can see, I didn't lose any weight. ..what is good on with my body and why am I being punished?  I'm doing everything right on this diet and my body won't give it up. Today all I ate was applesause... my last applesauce. I am not hungry and  didn't have to energy to cook for myself after cooking dinner for my boys. Maybe tomorrow will be better.... goodnight Bloggers.

Are We There Yet?
Weight: 235.2

One more pound down, and about 88 to go. 34 days to go in just the first round and already asking "are we there yet? "  I'm reallyjust in a mood today. .. I'm exhausted and just want to feel that I'm 10 lbs lighter.  I don't and just because Billy says I look it, doesn't mean my clothes are showing it. I really want my wedding to be perfect and if this dress doesn't fit,  I am going to die. .. okay,  a little dramatic but ladies who have planned a wedding know exactly what I'm talking about!  The dress is easily one, if not THE,  most important part of the wedding!  And when you are standing at the end of that  isle, you want to have the confidence to stomp down to the alter light it's the runway at fashion week and you're the star honey! The only way I am going to make it to my goal is through the grace of God! With him, anything is possible!

Slow Sunday
Weight: 236.2

Okay,  so I didn't blog yesterday because I was upset that I lost .2 lbs. Now I know that a loss is a loss and that's a lot to lose for one day, but after a big loss Friday I wasn't expecting it. I lost .8 today so a total of 6 lbs from my starting weight, not my load weight.  10.4 lbs down from my load weight. Today is just a lazy day at home, no temptations and no stress. So excited to start my new adventure with itworks. I hope I will be successful! Had SCALLOP for lunch and will have hamburger with onion soup.

Jumping for Joy
Weight: 237.4

I'm down 2.6 lbs and I'm so excited! My fiance even said my stomach is looking smaller last night!  Though I don't have much energy, I could jump for joy! For lunch it's a normal day: chicken and onion soup. I am going to the grocery store tonight so I get to switch it up for dinner and have some hamburger meat! When you only eat 3oz of something,  the whole package goes a long way. As far as my veggie for tonight, I may just eat a baby dill pickle. For dessert? Some delicious strawberries! I think what helped me lose so much weight, is my water intake yesterday.  Water is a powerful thing, people! So today I have my 62oz cup and my straw. Hoping to drink Two full cups (same as yesterday).

Water logged
Weight: 240.0

Wow, another 2 pounds. That brings me down 6.6 lbs. Finally woke up without a headache for the first time this whole diet! I wasn't feeling hungry today so I ate my fruit and my protein. My water intake was 124 oz well over what I needed. I am officially on my period so that may effect my weight loss, but hopefully I keep getting the numbers! Pretty consistent so far in losing at least 2 pounds a day and though I know it will slow down, I hope that I keep moving in the right direction!

Life is but a Dream
Weight: 242.0

Wow, I am down another 2.4 pounds. God is good... Today I decided to just drink ice water. That seems to help with the migraines... I woke up exhausted for some reason. I just dont have a whole lot of energy today. For lunch I had my chicken and onion soup and I will have lemon pepper tilapia for dinner with spinach again. I can not wait to get my 90/10 beef so I can switch it up some more, but honestly everything tastes like the best meal I've ever had right now.

January 5, 2016

Good day to lose
Weight: 244.4

Yay! I lost 2.2 pounds. Definitely worth sitting on the toilet for 30 minutes trying to poop. Today I am home with my son so I had my tilapia for lunch and two baby dill pickles. I have these chocolate drops the are HCG approved so I dropped a couple into my water today just so I wouldn't have to drink lemon water. It's pretty good considering... for dinner I had my chicken and onion soup and some apple sauce again.  The only down fall so far is this constant migraine  (probably from the  caffeine withdrawls). That will go away soon when my body is detoxed.

The Struggle
Weight: 246.6

Woke up this morning starving. I must have not loaded very well. Although, last night I thought I put up a pretty good fight against that chicken... I had 32oz of water with 1 full lemon for breakfast.  Little did I know that I would walk out to my car today and see my tire completely off the rim! So I walked to work, because you can't call in sick when you're a nanny. It was snowing and 32 degrees, granted it was only 2 miles, but I was livid. What a great way to say Monday. Is exactly what I was thinking at the point. For lunch I had 3oz of chicken breast with onion soup I had made the night before. My wonderful fiance picked me up from work and surprised me with already having my tire fixed. When I walked into the house, all my good energy was drained. My son brought home Christmas tree cookies and three sugar cookiees with gobs of icing, one for each of us... so what did i do? I seperated the cookes and gave Billy his share amd my son, bryland, his and threw my cookies in the freezer! Tonight I had pan seared tilapia with a Louisiana Spice dressing and fresh spinach and for dessert, organic unsweetened apple sauce!

Too Much Chicken
Weight: 246.6

As this is the final day of loading, just the very thought of food makes me sick. Knowing what challenges lie ahead, I am trying to eat all the sweets out of the house! Those demons will be staring me in the face if I don't. In a last attempt to get carbs into my diet, I bought 3 pounds of fried chicken. Yes, we're talking chicken strips, popcorn chicken, and chicken thighs.... moral of the story? TOO MUCH CHICKEN!

Loading up
Weight: 246.2

As a part of the HCG weight loss Bio app, your first three days are "loading days". You store up on fats and carbohydrates  to ensure your body doesn't crash. I started yesterday so this is day two. I feel so sick from eating so much, but if you don't  load properly the whole diet will fail. I've decided to do measurements once a month but weigh every day to keep track of my progress. As you can see I gained 4 pounds from eating yesterday so today may be a light load.

The beginning to the rest of my life
Bust:     46.4"
Waist:   43.5"
Hips:     53.5"
Legs:     31"/31"
Arms:    16"/16"

I am getting married July 23, 2016 to my best friend, Billy (total cliche, right?). Like many women, I have struggled my whole life with not only my weight but with the way I view myself. It may sound simple: "To love one's self" but sometimes we can be our biggest critic. I have decided to embark on a 6 month journey to not only count down my wedding but to count down the weight as well. I will start with the 45 day HCG weight loss Bio App designed by Dr. Simeon. I do not recommend doing this program without speaking with your doctor first and doing thorough research on the program yourself. Following that, I will attempt to use Itworks products (fat fighters, wraps, and toning gel) for about a month as long as it doesn't cause me to gain weight. By April 1, 2016 I will do another round of the HCG program and on May 16th I will start the final phase of the Itworks products  (as long as I didn't have a bad reaction the first round). By July 20, 2016 I will be completely done with my transformation. My goal is to lose 100 lbs. In six months. Wish me luck!
