Tuesday's Thoughts

Verse of the Day:

"If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." II Chronicles 7:14

Well day one of the 500 cal portion of the diet is done. When I went to my friend's house on Friday night I weighed myself. I went back over to pick up some things and she gave me the scale since she is moving and doesn't need it and I weighed myself again when I got back home and I am down 5.2 pounds since Friday night!!!!! WAHOO!!!!!!!!!!! This diet is a bit hard. It is very strict. Normally I do not eat a lot anyway, BUT I found myself hungry all day yesterday! I mean really! I am wondering if it is Psychosomatic? For breakfast I had herbal tea sweetened with Stevia, for morning snack I had an apple, for lunch I had grilled shrimp and asparagus, for afternoon snack I had some strawberries sweetened with Stevia, and for dinner I had a taco salad (HCG approved of course)! Now I am a firm believer in NOT going to be bed hungry so I saved my 2 carbs (Melba toast or Grissini) for about an hour before bedtime. I was taught by a nutritionist NOT to go to bed hungry and about 30 minutes before bed eat a very healthy snack (not ice cream people) I was told your body can go into starvation mode and it can prevent you from loosing weight at a steady rate. I lost 136 lbs doing that before and I WILL continue to do it with his diet unless I gain 50 pounds LOL. If I can endure the actual hunger pains for a few more days I KNOW I can make it and I WILL loose. Thanks to everyone backing me up and supporting me and I KNOW I cannot do this with out GOD's help! I am looking forward to the rest of my journey! I WILL be small again dang it!

On another note, it is a gloomy day outside and with gloomy days for me comes a gloomy mood. Oh well! I think my Isabella is getting sick too. She has been up and now all night coughing like she has something draining. I am pretty sure it is allergies, but I am going to keep a close eye on her anyway. 

Not too much planned for today really. I have to help a friend get her house ready for final inspection tonight and then I need to drop off Emily's paperwork to get her on the waiting list for preschool. It depends on how Bella is feeling. I still need to get this house back in order too! I am so behind on everything! I have no motivation at all. I am just so tired all of the time lately. I  have a Miche Bag party Friday so it has to be spotless by then. Pics and info about the Miche Bag will be posted over the week end by the way :)

Well, I am off of here for today! As always have a blessed day and remember Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through CHRIST which strengthenth me."

How long have you been on the HCG drops? I know someone else who is on them and they sound intriguing. Have you had any side effects? How bad is the hunger?? Thanks!
