Day 28 [Alesha's HCG Journey]

I have been having a really hard time this past weekend. I feel like I am doing everything right accept for getting in all my water on occasion. I woke up to a .5 gain on Sunday morning then this morning I have a 1.5 gain! I know at least with me, I cannot move during the day on this diet. When I do, I have a stall or a gain. On Saturday we were out running the errands we need to run on a weekly basis. Yesterday I took my 10 month old son to the pool for the first time. I tried my hardest but I had to swim around a little bit. I decided yesterday that I mentally need a break and am only doing 30 days, then maintenance then another 30 days before my summer fun starts. I wish I was stronger enough to go to at least 45 if not the 60 but the food is really starting to depress me. I have realized thru this process that I am an extremely emotional eater. Not necessarily eating when I am sad or what not, just that food brightens my mood. I am unbelievably grumpy day after day just because I know I don’t get anything that is appetizing to me. I am glad I at least have learned that much on me but at the same time, at what price? I have become depressed, grumpy and bitey towards everyone it seems.

Trust me, I am in no way de-evaluating the process, I am beside myself I have come so far but at the same time, I am loosing great progress the last few days of being on protocol that I have lost by gaining for stupid reasons. I purposely stayed up late last night just to make sure I got all my water in. While trying to stay up I was researching the maintenance phase and was getting so excited b/c of all the before and after pics and such. Then I wake up to this gain and I feel stuck again. I keep telling myself every day is a new day but I have been saying that for a while. I am considering an apple day tomorrow if I see a gain again.

I also think I need to see a physcologist b/c I have noticed all the suppressed emotions and stuff that are coming up now that I am loosing the weight. Don’t worry, I am not acting on that, it was just a thought I had. This is definitely one of the hardest things I have ever done but I am happy with the results thus far. Hopefully this finds you on a good day.

      Thank you Patty! It is the hardest thing I have done in my life aside from dealing with a new born that wont sleep. I am going to do an apple day tomorrow if I don’t see a loss b/c I don’t want to get so far right before I stop and go on maintenance and have actually lost less before I quit. Does that make sense? Any way, I am looking forward to maintenance really bad so hopefully I can get there.

        You have done so well…..Please do not get too down… I have actually cut back on my H2o, cause i was having puffy hands in the morning and since i have done this, I have lost almost 3#’s in the past few days. Everyone’s body is different, so switch this up a bit in your meals, and do not eat too many strawberries due to the sweetness. I did an apple day, and lost 3 lbs a couple of weeks ago.. Hang in there.

          Thanks Pat, I am hoping it goes well tomorrow. I haven’t been switching it up a bit b/c I cannot stomach shrimp anymore and I don’t like fish. So I am stuck with chicken and I cannot even stomach that anymore. I am so grossed out by my food now that I don’t even enjoy my meals anymore. I know that is what is going on with the weight thing, that is why I want to stop at 30 instead of going to 45 or 60. I know I have done well but I just don’t want to end on a sour note ya know? Congrats to you though, you are doing awesome! I will try to get my blog sent in before I go to work in the morning, we will see how it goes. Otherwise I will have to do it tomorrow night. If you are on facebook you can always check me there too.

    If you are mentally done,then maybe its time,I would suggest calling or emailing linda first ! if your at 30 days ! you can do 2 more weeks! The food does get depressing , I have purposelly not tried a few things on the list ,just so i would have new things to try in the second month! im going for 60 days! ill have new pics up tomorrow! and after seeing the comparision i will not quit ! Linda might suggest upping your protien for more active days? ive seen that on the boards!
    whatever you choose ,you have done awesome! and phase 3 and phase 4 are so important ! keep us posted!
    Keep on keeping on!
