Reality check

My first round was so unbelievably and relatively easy. I went into round 2 thinking, "Oh, it is no big deal! I will lose an average pound a day, no problem!"

I lulled myself into a false sense of security. I know this round is not going to be easy. I will still have the cravings and the overwhelming urges to eat. I won't lose a pound or more everyday. I will have downs. I WILL HAVE UPS! The "up" I am going to concentrate on is 127 pounds (or less :)). I am not confused or in denial as to what I have to do for this round to be successful and meet my goal. Round 2 was my reality check. You can't just slide by unscathed by the psychological pitfalls of dieting and expect results. You must accept that they are going to happen and bolster yourself in preparation for those moments, which will hopefully help thwart a full onslaught of self-sabotage. Although, the HCG diet is the easiest thing I have ever ran across, it is still a diet and you must put in great effort and focus to be successful.

So, bring it on! I am ready!


  1. I feel ya! R2 has brought challenges for me I didn't face in R1. First I didn't have any temptations in R1 and I lost more and I got more sleep! I'm so glad I'm taking a planned interruption.

    Keep on Keepin' On!

  2. R2 was HARD, but it did prepare me to be prepared for anything in R3 - each round is different! You have the PERFECT attitude. I am really excited for you!

  3. Wow wow wow. I haven't been here in a look fantastic

  4. Amen girl! It is 90% willpower for me. I'm halfway through R3, and it feels like it's been more challenging this time!

  5. Caitlin, your excitement and determination are infectious! I'm so pleased that you've taken the leap and are going to start your next round while your motivation is at a peak. You will be so happy to move through this round, and hopefully reach your goal!

  6. Thanks to you all for the comments! I am still very excited, but I really need to remember that this is not going to be easy. And it shouldn't be that easy. :)

    Oh, and Nicole- it was great to see your comment! Thanks so much it seems like forever ago- for me it all started with you and Kayla as followers to my story. :) How are you? Are you writing a blog now?
