“If you have you a healthy mind, a healthy heart, and reserves of stamina and creative energy to draw on, the world is literally lying at your feet. With your health you have everything.”
Sarah Ban Breathnach
I wrote at the beginning of the year some resolutions. One of my main resolutions is to lose weight. Mainly for my health, I thought training for the 60 mile bike ride would help me. However when I fell off my bike at the end of June and fractured my right elbow, that ended my bike riding for the summer. I was feeling bad I only lost four pounds and was very frustrated.
So I decided to follow another co-worker’s suggestion. She went on the HCG-diet and was having a lot of success. I went to her doctor to find out more information and to see if I would be a good candidate for the diet. I and was able to go on the diet.
It has not been easy. It is a restrictive diet. You can only eat certain foods, and I hate seafood. However, I want to be healthy.
As of today I lost 18 pounds and 11 inches. I was so excited I almost jumped all the way home. But it is way more than just the pounds and inches it is becoming a lifestyle change.
Now when I go in the car, I always take a glass of water with me and an apple if I am going to be gone during one of my snack times.
I do not eat between or after the meals. I only eat on my schedule.
I eat my breakfast apple at 10:00. Then lunch is at 12:00, generally chicken and cucumbers or celery with four cherry tomatoes. Then 3:00 is snack, strawberries or apple. Dinner can be fish, shrimp or chicken. I mix it up with spinach or asparagus and of course tomatoes.
No eating after meals. I drink ice passion tea or ice green tea with stevia packets and lots and lots water.
I basically have no carbs or sugar………to be honest I am feeling great.
