Diet chaos...

Ha! The crazy person in me has set-up another youtube account for my vlogs http://www.youtube.com/user/SpoiledAndGorg

From 7/2010....
Lose weight fast with hCG, keep it off a few months, do another round, keep it off a few months, do another round... This has been my weight loss "solution" and will be my cycle for approximately the next year. I'm good with that. The hCG diet isn't hard, it's just strict. I've got to give it 100% without a single cheat and I cannot fail!

What I do after I am lose it all is up to me...
From April 2010...
Am I down 35.3 pounds from P2D1? Or am I down 31.6 pounds from P1D1? That is the question. I would like to always go by the bigger number. But, ohhh that ticker at the bottom keeps telling me I am a liar. lol Either way, this journey began for me on March 14. 2010, and oh, I have come so far already!

4/25/10 - I have been so successful I have decided to sell it! See my blog post from today or visit http://hcglean.110mb.com/

My story - With each of my 5 pregnancies I have gained a bit more. During my first pregnancy I gained a LOT of weight and never lost 80 pounds of it. I have tried every fad diet, and "lifestyle change" known. Eating raw, exercising, Jenny Craig, Metabolife, Eat Right for Your Blood Type, you name it!

I found the HCG diet through my Nutritionist/Massage Therapist. After intensive solo research, and talking to my doctor and Naturopath friend, I decided to go for it. I am seeing great results! I am not fooled enough to really think I can "eat anything I want after this diet 'cures' me from my abnormal fat", but I am using this as a proven diet to lose the weight, from there it's up to me.

I work for a major Healthcare provider. I am going to school to become a PA. I am a wife. I am a mother. I am a sister. I am a daughter. And I think I am sassy, smart, fun, and sometimes a bit too emotional.

I hope to really go a long way with this. I plan to continue making my vlogs on youtube (I am OregonPhotomomma) to document my weight loss as well.

Thanks for following me!

    emoticon Hi !
    It's December already; can you believe it? November and December are the busiest months for me (besides July and August and September!) It seems the Holidays bring our friends and families closer and we spend more time visiting, and entertaining during these two months than any others; lots of Holiday preparation going too!

    I find that I don't often get an opportunity to get around to Sparkpeople as much, but I try to stay focused as much as possible. Sometimes my good friend Will Power (who is always a welcome guest) doesn't show up until 'after' dinner, but I'm working on that as well.

    I hope things are going well for you and you don't find yourself too busy to take care of yourself. You are the most important person in your life!

    Keep in touch!
