Maintaining

A few days into maintenance and I realise just how good the hcg made me feel, and how easy it was to eat so little.  It was easier this time because I didn't stress so much about the weight loss each day.  I still weighed each morning, but it was what it was. Week two it took me the whole week to drop 1 kg.  but then the next week was more encouraging. I dropped nearly 10 kg in a 4 week period.    Now on maintenance, I am so hungry!  I think about food! but I am  trying to think it feels good to be empty.  I am working at changing my mind!
One year has gone by since I began with HCG.  I have released 26kg or 57 pounds!!  I find it so hard to imagine putting a 50 pound bag of fertiliser in a back pack and carry it around ALL the time!  It is so much easier to get around now, up and down stairs and hills, and biking!  I feel so free ~ I could fly!!
I am loving the new clothes...the  new look, new hair cut!  but really, I'm still the same ME!
I am committed to maintaining.  I want to enjoy this next third of my life being as healthy as is within my power.

Too much holiday. . . .

Too much eating out . . . . I thot I was stronger than that, but the smell of French bread got the better of me and once I started I couldn't stop.  I MUST learn to be moderate.
So . . . . I am doing round 4 of hcg and losing the same weight I lost earlier in the year.  It's so disheartening. AND its coming off SO SLOW!  The smaller clothing I bot in Canada in May are fitting me nicely again.  I do admit they had gotten tight!  BUT... I gave away the biggies, so there was no going back.  Only going forward!   Some days its trying to be summer, so today I bot some new long shorts and they are the smallest size I have purchased for myself for many years!!  Now is the challenge to not grow out of them.  I will start maintenance in a few days.  I look forward to avocado and oil on my salad  and cream in my coffee!  other than that things won't change much.
