I never posted my weight from last week, which went up to 158.8 during Aunt Flo’s visit. I weighed in at 152.4 yesterday morning, a 6.2 pound loss. Woot!
So I finally proved to myself that I really CAN’T eat stuff not allowed while taking the HCG drops, or the weight loss really will stall. I’m not talking jelly doughnuts and Fritos chips (which obviously would wreak havoc on any weight loss plan), I’m talking ANYTHING, including healthy stuff that is so low in calories it may as well be air. I bought a huge jar of pickled okra (an HCG diet no-no) at Sam’s Club on Wednesday and I convinced myself that there was NO WAY I would stop losing weight if I ate five okra (only 10 calories). So I ate them. My weight loss every day up until yesterday had been over one pound but Thursday I was only down .4 pounds. I figured that was still OK and ate another five okra yesterday. Only lost .2 pounds when I weighed in this morning. Now that’s a good amount if you’re following a healthy diet, but that is really pathetic if you’re on HCG drops and only eating about 500 calories a day. I refuse to work this hard for a measly .2 pound loss! So I’m off the pickled okra until the end of the drops. Phooey. I love pickled okra almost more than anything in the world! Only a few more weeks, and they’re MINE! Mwahahahahahaha!
Sorry, my love for okra kind of possessed me for a second. Anyway, yesterday marked the start of The Hot 100 challenge so I’m one day in and super pumped to meet my goals! I’ve already got a head start on the first one, getting down to 145, since I’m now only 7.4 pounds away. Woot!
So there are other things I want to talk about: my low-carb diet allergy (seriously) and home remedies for yeast infections. But I always make my blogs way too long so I’m going to make a point to do these in two separate blogs this week before my next weigh in. So you have some interesting (if yucky) stuff to look forward to!
