navyra asked: Your blog is great, and I completely understand about stress eating (that's how I gained most of my weight.) It REALLY helps though if you drink a ton of water. It's hard to eat anything, even from stress if your tummy is full of liquid XD I modify my plan slightly to include Mio drops in my water because when I first started HCG it was hard to drink so much water. I don't know if you know what they are but they have similar products called Refreshe too which have vitamin B.. Really helps ^_^
Thank you very much! That’s great advice :) I definitely don’t drink enough…and we do have those Mio drops in Canada (they just came out).
I’ll have to try that - or ship the sources of my stress off to Siberia - though the logistics in that are complicated so I’ll probably stick with the water thing ;)
Just trying to keep the blog honest. It’s super disappointing to post my failures but oh well! Hopefully people can relate and we can all motivate each other.
You’re a doll! Thanks again
I would like it if a family crisis didn’t occur while I was trying to stick to a diet.
Really?…I mean REALLY?! I’m 100% a stress eater and should be stronger than this.
Lazzzzy days! It’s going alright so far but I really need to exercise to kick my results to where I want em.
So, truth be told, I definitely have been avoiding this blog due to embarrassment. I completely caved, and then felt super guilty, and then stopped the diet altogether.
I got back up as high at 174 and got really pissed at myself, and decided that Sept 1st I’d start over.
Changes I’ve made to help myself not puss out this time….
1. A friend is doing HCG with me, a friend who will kick my ass if I give up (Thanks Natasa!)
2. I’m going to exercise regularly this time to keep myself from eating out of boredom and to rejuvenate myself - the lure of the couch? I’m over it.
3. I’m not dealing with the stress of my family drama that’s going on right now. I’m not going to desert my parents, but I’m going to take me time and acknowledge my limits. If I need to burn to relax, I’m going to.
4. I’m going to blog everyday. No excuses….and if I don’t you guys better cuss me out! Please & Thank YOU!
I can do this. Absolutely I can..and I will.
Wish me luck xo

We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”
glamour-highs asked: Just read your latest blog entry and I can't get over how almost identical my struggles are with yours. I too went on a three day binge and completely ruined my progress, but I've finally gotten my head back into the game! Just keep reminding yourself how badly you want this, and why you even want it. Cheating yourself isn't worth it in the moment if that mean you have to wait that much longer for your dream body! Keep at it you got it, and I can't wait to see those before and afters!! :)
Thank you thank you thank you for the support! It’s nice to know that I’m not alone in this :) I really appreciate it.
Gettin’ back in the game. Pinky swear with you on it ;)
My cheating has caught up with me, as I knew it would.
I’m so frustrated with myself. I don’t know what I was thinking varying from the VLCD so much. I almost feel like I’ve wasted this entire round.
I’m not giving up. I’ve read about the best method to get back on track. My initial plan was to basically fast for a day and suck back tons of water. However, everything I’ve researched has said to get right back on the VLCD and drink 3 litres of water a day.
I’m also going to have a colonic hydrotherapy session on Wednesday to detox completely.
I’m really disappointed in myself, but shit happens…so I’m moving on! :)
