Week One--

Doing a little better today! I've been uber-grumpy the last few days, which always happens to me during the first week of this diet. It disturbs me to think how focused I am mentally & physically on food every minute of the day. Last night, my dd popped popcorn and it took all my concentration not to think about it. Can't wait until this "detox" phase (my unofficial terminology) is over!

I just have to keep thinking about results--I was down 6 lbs. this morning!!!--so that rocks!

I gotta tell you that I find you very inspiring. The most inspiring part of your story is that you're "At the beginning...Again".
I'm in P2,Round 1 & nearing the end. I'm finding it continually difficult to stay motivated, it hasn't gotten any easier for me. I hit a major stall, got discouraged and then cheated. I was left feeling extremely guilty, was convinced I was going to fail at this too and all but decided to stop taking the drops. I found your blog and realized the only failure is if one doesn't pick themself up and start again. I have found renewed commitment and excitement which will keep me going these last 15 days & into P3, thanks to you. I realized that if doing another round is what I have to do to meet my goal, that doesn't mean I've failed. It's more opportunity to develop better habits. I've tried a few of your recipes and am now obsessed. It's all I think about all day at work-what new creation is for dinner:)
I read your entry about running a 5k. Very impressive, even if you didn't complete one. I did the same thing- but then I signed up for one which made me commit. I stumbled through the training, and on race day I walked about 1/2 the race...but I finished.It was that race that made me commit to doing better on the next one- and I did.
So with my new found inspiration maybe my second round of HCG will be better and stronger. Thanks for being so inspiring and starting at the beginning...again.
