I have been on hcg since late January. The Before...This picture was taken of the Mr. and I when we went to "A Christmas Story" house and tour in Cleveland at Thanksgiving. By the way, the tour was SO cool! It was Ralphie's house! So, you can see the fullness in my face and neck.
The After...this was taken last weekend when I was stress free during my stay-cation. I've lost about 30 pounds. I took 2 weeks off as I finished the first round. I just started again last week. Of course over the weekend we had family and I went well over my 500 calories. Thankfully I did not gain any additional weight except for water weight. My whole body was swollen! I totally understand the no salt aspect of the diet as I had guacamole and chips that were salted and my body swelled so badly. So, I'm back to it. Breakfast today is my iced coffee. I'll have lunch in a few minutes of baked potato with fat free sour cream. Dinner will be salad and Aidel sausages. Dessert will be fruit sorbet. So, here's to the next 45 pounds being gone!
