Sorry for the hiatus!

When the weather cools off...so do I. Hence my hiatus from updating my blog! But my goal is to be better about updating, and actually finding interesting things to update with!!

I thought today's entry would be about weight loss. In particular, my weight loss.

I've struggled with weight in the past few years, bouncing up and down, but mostly bouncing up. I was buying bigger and bigger clothes, and becoming more and more miserable. I tried everything, and failed at every diet. I even failed at Weight Watchers...where you can eat just about anything you want. But then I found THE diet for me.

Homeopathic HCG.

When I first heard about this program a few years ago, all I knew was that it had to be done with injections. So, since I am deathly afraid of needles, it was a no brainer for me: No thanks. Then, I found out there was a homeopathic version of HCG and decided to try it. The diet itself is VERY restrictive, and I didn't tell anyone that I was doing it (except my bff) because I didn't want anyone telling me I would fail at it.

So I ordered and started.

I didn't have stellar results because in the beginning, I was still working on my self control. I had some slip ups. I had some falls on my face. But my first round I lost 15 pounds and a ton of inches. In my second round, I found it was a LOT easier, and I lost another 15lbs and got down to a comfortable 12 from a tight 14. I also went down to L (some XL) in shirts from 1X.

I am on round three right now and am having a difficult time getting back into the groove after a month long hiatus. But I'm not giving up. I've come too far and am too close to my goal. :)

Here are a few comparison pictures. I usually stay out of the lens so photos of me are hard to come by. But you can get a glimpse...

And AFTER/CURRENT pics! I still have about 20-25 pounds to go, but I've come a long way!!

You are looking so good! It's so hard to lose weight. I've been working on it for about a year and struggle with it every day. Way to go!

Good for you - congratulations on the weight los. I am actually on Weight Watchers and have been very successful - but I know it's not for everyone. Hope you can get back on track.

Good for you Stephanie. It is hard. I have always been tiny, really tiny. And these last few years I have gained and it is hard to lose it.
Keep it up, you have gone so far, don't stop.
