Day 7 [Alesha’s HCG Journey]

So I seem to have a small stall. I didn’t lose anything today but at least I stayed the same. At first I had a hard time with it then I thought “what about the 11.5 lbs you have lost already?” And yes, what I have lost already is worth it. No need to feel like I haven’t done well. Today is a new day and I will get past this. I think maybe I did too much walking yesterday, spent all afternoon out shopping and getting errands done.

But as I said, today is a new day and I am determined to loose the rest of my weight. I know I can do this but there definitely is no sugar coating the fact that it is hard. Trying to stay out of my head is proving the hardest but that is part of this program in my mind. Retrain your brain to think, just because I am craving it doesn’t mean I HAVE to have it. I know tomorrow will be better.

    You are totally rocking it Woman! I am on the same day as you and I have had steady losses but my total is still “only” 8.0 ponds. So your 11.5 pounds is KILLER!

    Keep it up! <3

    Alesha, You are so right when you say “Retrain your brain.” That’s been the biggest challenge for me. Stay strong!!!

    Thank you so much Jodi and Jennifer. I agree the 11.5 lbs I have lost is awesome that is what keeps me in good spirits today. I still maintain a stong mind even when my husband makes my favorite cheese filled burritos with warmed tortillas on the coil. But keeping strong just meant to go to the craft store and spend time away. Or when he eats pizza! OMG I have never been a huge fan of pizza ( I like the occasional slice) but when he made that for his dinner the cheese smelled so good. Oh BTW I am a cheese fanatic to the nth degree. Anywho, thanks for all the great comments ladies and keep it up along with me and we will prevail.

    Yeah I used to live in Minneapolis and lived for the cheese that came from Wisconsin. I currently live in Missoula,Montana. I have not seen that recipe but sounds good. I haven’t looked ahead to maintenance recipes because I don’t wanna dream about what I get. I am doing the 45 day program so I have a little bit longer to go. But I cannot wait to add some cheese and dairy back into my diet. Today has been easier but I have kept myself busy too.

      Hey Alesha!!
      I forgot…… I am on the 45 day program as well, slipped my mind !!!Good thing I spoke to you!! Just think how much we will lose at the end of 45 days !!! Can’t wait. I have so much energy, that today I reorganized/cleaned all my cupboards and drawers in my kitchen.. I was in there for 5 hours doing it!!! I am receiving so much “self satisfaction” these days, I feel like I have “awoken” form a daze that I had been in…Weird

      OK.. I just got done with supper. I wanted to try eating radishes, so I went on the internet to look for some recipes for “cooked radishes”. here is the recipe I tried & really enjoyed it:
      ***Baked Radish Chips***
      *Hand full of Red Radishes (sliced thin)
      *Chili powder (to taste)
      *Garlic powder (to taste)
      *Paprika (taste)
      *Steam sliced radishes in microwave for 2 minutes
      *Put in bowl with spices & stir
      *Put in baking dish & bake for 10 minutes..turn and bake another 10 minutes.
      Nice change for me, I will for sure make these again tomorrow!!
