Day 1- Here I go again!

"And I've made up my mind,
I ain't wasting no more time
Here I go again..."

This will be my theme song, but I won't be alone and I know where I am going because I know where I have been.  Okay, completely cheesy, but what did you expect- too much Rock Band perhaps? :) :)  That really is how it was this morning, though- I just started, decided I wasn't going to stall anymore and that today was the day.   

Anyway, I took my first dose and weighed in and I am frightened!  I am almost embarrassed to post, but here it is my friends:

weigh in:  187.6 lbs  *sad face, sad face*  but, it is what it is and all I can do is move on- I was not able to even come near controlling my weight this pregnancy either.  All three times I have soared up over 200 pounds.  It is crazy, but true!  Oh, I can't wait to get some of this weight off!
I am going to do some measurements also and take some better pictures to get the full effect of what is going to happen to my body over the next 46 days.  That's right I am planning on a full 46 day round.  So today and tomorrow are the dreaded load days.  I have only had one doughnut this morning and I am already about ready to puke.  This is not a good sign. :)  No, I am dramatic, but I seriously dislike this part- but just so people new or contemplating this diet understand... DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!!!  Not that I have ever done so, but I know of people who did not heed the warnings and didn't last very long or have very good results.  

Day 23 will be the 12th of February and Day 46 will be the 7th of March.  If all goes as planned, I will be down to a reasonable weight and closer and closer to my ideal weight by summer!  I am seriously so excited!  I wasn't just one day ago, but now that I am writing this post and actually jumping in- I just can't wait to start seeing that scale drop and start feeling great again!!!  Oh, and dumping ALL those maternity and big clothes once and for all!!!  

Thanks to you all again for following me through my pregnancy and now back to my weight loss story!  Your support means the world!  Here I go again!   


  1. Woot Woot! How exciting for you to start this next round! 46 days is a long round, but I know you can do it! I'm on my 5th VLCD and have already dropped 5 lbs. Not my best losses by any means, but I'm so happy about it! A loss is a loss, no matter how small!
    good luck to you my dear! I"ll be cheering you on the entire way!

  2. I am 2 days ahead of you and doing HCG for the first time, Im looking forward to seeing what it can do! Good luck!

  3. Woohoo!! You will do great and it will come off in no time!! Thank you for posting your nursing story - I love your candor, and think your kids are lucky to have such a mom :) Keep posting on your round, I am anxious to see how you do!

  4. Today is my first day on hcg and I am scared to eat all the food they required, my mind set is, what if I eat all this food gain weight and then can't lose it.
