Well, well, well... We meet again! I just wanted to give y'all a quick update on how I'm fairing. My weight is currently 246.3 pounds I'm working hard to drop another 40 pounds by then end of the year. I'm taking things slow now and focusing on forming lasting habits which seems to be working for me. I've had tremendous success changing my eating habits, but am still working on becoming consistent with my workouts. My goal for working out is at least 60 minutes 5 times a week, but it's hard finding the motivation to get up and be active sometimes... I find myself eating less and less meat as the days go on, I don't really crave or want it. Also I stay mostly in the produce section of the grocery story which allows me to control the ingredients I'm putting into my body. I am starting to love the way I look in my clothes and love the energy I have from the foods I eat!

I haven't forgotten to blog, just too busy trying to enjoy life and find a job. As far as HCG goes, I've stopped taking the drops mainly because I forgot them a few times and because I want to detox my body of chemicals right now. I have NOT stepped on the scale in almost 2 weeks and it feels great not to stress about it. Don't worry because I'm not since I've been eating healthy foods and exercising... I've been trying to keep my food raw and unprocessed, mostly shopping in the produce section of the grocery store. Also I've been juicing everyday and find myself waking up wondering what I'm going to mix that will taste good. Recently I've found myself more relaxed probably because I had the chance to see 2 of my TX girlfriends last weekend, this weekend, AND see the oceanfront at the same time. CAN'T BEAT THAT!
Today I got online trying to find a farmers market in the area so I can buy cheaper organic produce but they don't start opening until the end of April or early May here. My goal today was to be happy and let nothing bring me down and the best way I know how to do that is to look good... When I look good I feel good too, so I got up fixed my hair and makeup and threw on a bright purple dress! I have to say that so far it's working awesome, my husband said I was his "hot trophy wife" and my sister said "you're a doll" :) Talk about smiling from ear to ear, I'm not one for the lime light or being the center of attention but it feels good to get compliments ESPECIALLY when you're feeling a little down in the dumps. OH! I forgot the best part of putting on my dress this morning... It was a dress I bought at the end of the year before I left TX, 1 size too small, still had tags on it since I couldn't fit it.... Well, it fit this morning! BAM BOOM POW!!!! One of the best feelings in the world lol. That's one of the things about me not focusing on the scale, I can tell by the way my clothes fit and how I feel overall that the changes I have made are working for me.
While I haven't lost all the weight I wanted, I'm SOOOO VERY THANKFUL for the kick in the pants HCG has given me! I think without it I would've had a very hard time finding the confidence and discipline to keep going even when I do have a slip up.
