My interlude and completion

This post has been long overdue, but here is what has happened during the final days of my second round. Back forever ago, it seems I messed up my round good and proper like with an extra gain of 3.2 pounds to land me at 152. 4 pounds. I think I just didn't feel like I did enough damage, but the above gain definitely snapped me out of it. I promptly lost quite well over the next 4 days. I had an average loss of 1.8 pounds loss per day. I lost a total of 6.8 pounds to arrive at 145.6 pounds. Then I got sick... :( I quit taking HCG for the 3 days I was sick. My weight held steady. I decided to start it back up, but after one day of taking HCG I decided to just give it up for now. I have been so worn down from being sick and I just didn't want to keep it up anymore. I can be proud of how I ended. Round 2 is done and behind me. :)

I have about 2-3 months before I start my third round and hopefully final round. :) I am quite excited, because I am looking forward to enjoying how I look and the different clothes I can wear over the holidays AND, the possibility of getting in the 120's next round!!! :) Possibility, I am not going to get too hasty with setting exact numbers, but it is definitely exciting! I am also excited about exercise! I have missed my long runs and other athletic activities. It feels so good to run now, I just love it! On warmer days I would like to start getting out on my favorite dirt road and leave all my worries in the dust for awhile... The wide openness of the Wyoming landscape can absorb and engulf seemingly huge problems and put them all back into proportion. :)

So, there you have it! I know I kind of left it a mystery as to what exactly happened to me during my brief interlude. I just needed to get through without the distraction and pressure of blogging and over thinking it as I have the tendency to do at times. I can just get too bogged down and forget to just take it day by day. I will need to remember that for next round. I get so focused on what goal I must attain that I neglect to keep it simple: drink lots of water and green tea, if you feel your will power waning do something to distract yourself and just keep going... Ultimately, that really is all there is to it. However, easier said then done as we all know. :)



  1. Great post! Thank you and congrats on finishing Round 2!! :o)

  2. Congratulations!! Enjoy P3 - you deserve it! You've worked so hard.

    Honestly, I cannot imagine you any smaller! I look at the picture of the beautiful woman at the top of this blog and don't see 20 pounds more to lose - I don't see 5 more pounds to lose, for that matter! How tall are you, lady??

    Again, congratulations. I was wondering where you'd slipped off to. I'm so happy for you!

    Glad you're feeling better!

  3. I'm excited for you! I love running too but my weight has kept me from truly enjoying it. I love watching the sun rise and feeling the wind on my awesome since of freedom.

    Enjoy yourself and hopefully you'll continue blogging during your break. Your blogs really capture your spirit.


  4. Congrats on all your hard work! Do keep blogging thru the break! :)
