Saturday Scale Says

This morning the scale read 175.0.  Not what I wanted, but what I expected.  Between the ham & cheese dip and graham crackers, I really could not expect great numbers today.

Yesterday marked the end of the three weeks of hcg.  I spoke to a rep from the office where I get my hcg.  She suggested a cleanse for 30 days and then restarting the hcg.  She said that people lost weight on the cleanse, but it was more to help with the immunity one's body develops to the hormone.  What she said rang true with me.  I already knew intuitively before this round began that my body was over the hcg in a way.

The cleanse is 1200 to 1500 calories per day with whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and protein.  There is nothing processed or pre-prepared.  There is no sugar, or carbs except those that occur naturally in the food.  Really, it is the way I'd like to eat once I get to my goal.  This will be good practice for that.

I'll probably stretch the cleanse until the end of the year.  Then I'll make a fresh start with the hcg in January when the rest of the country is dieting and slip right on down to my goal weight.  Maybe I can be there by Valentine's Day!  For now, I cleanse.
