Um Ya, Pretty Sure I'm Tiny

OK, so I just got home from weighing in and getting measured. Turns out this Hungry Cravings Grumble diet really is working. I've lost FOURTEEN POUNDS!!!!! I know what you're thinking: "Of course you've lost weight. You've been starving yourself." Well I'd believe you except they did my measurements and ya, I'm tiny!

I've lost 1.5" off my upper arm.
2" off my chest (upper back fat)
1.5" off my waist (just under my bra line)
2" off my other waist (belly-button area/lower back fat)
FOUR INCHES off my thighs

So that tells me I've lost fat. And not just because I'm so freaking hungry all the time. I was going to ask why I was so hungry still but I forgot to. I'm really excited now. It's just nice to get some validation for all the crap I've had to go through to achieve this so called "lifestyle change". I have 12 more days of torture and if I lose a pound a day that'll be 26 pounds and that'll be fan-freakin'-tastic!!!

what exactly are you doing women the HCG? Are you going to keep it off is my question? Once you go back to eating and stuff will you gain it all back?

Um, I don't know who the Lindsays are, but I have to say that bringing you down off your excited high over your success is a job reserved for FAMILY, and that ain't them. If you choose not to keep the weight off, I'll help you eat the Lindsays.

Meanwhile, GO LITTLE SIS!! And getting littler all the time! As tall as you are, you are freaking GORGEOUS anyway, and when you get to your model weight, well, look out!!

Wow that is fabulous!!!

Woo hoo, that's great news! I remember how damn skinny I got back when I did HCG, it rocked. That was oh, 12 years ago when they were probably still killing lab rats with the shots so I'm sure it's much safer these days. I'll have to look into it to see if it's an option here. Keep it up!

Back fat --I REFUSE to believe you had any back fat. I'LL SHOW YA BACK FAT (well, actually, no I won't) Hey, when hubby and I finally get down for those ribs --will I be able to find you, due to the fact you are disintegrating inch by precious inch and pound by repulsive pound. WAY. TO. GO.

Are you going for the sex goddes look --or just the all around "I know you want me" kinda look, but sorry, I'm taken.

I'm pretty sure you weren't that big to begin with, but congrats!

I think it helps to make the "lifestyle changes" before you start HCG.

I was already on a low-carb type diet (but not low-fat) before doing HCG. It hasn't been a huge burden to drop to 500 calories, and I can't see my eating habits changing a whole lot after stopping the injections.

Stupid hormonal weight gain.

But seriously, if you go back to the carbs (especially in the first 3 weeks after injections stop), you'll gain it all back. And then some. Carbs are NOT your friends. Well, unless you choose GOOD carbs (whole grains, fruits, veggies).

Yeah Yeah Yeah for weight loss!
And now that you have kick started your lifestyle change, you will be even more determined to do what it takes to keep it off!

Congrats girl - even though I'm not sure it's the safest way, I have NO ROOM TO TALK!

I'm just going jump on the happy bus wit' ya!
