One afternoon late last week, 65MD came home with a weight loss plan for himself. He had done his research and had a reasonable plan laid out before him. He did not ask me to join him since he knew that I was doing well with my plan. However, I really liked his plan, so I said that I would join him.
I'm not going to give any information about the 65MD Plan just yet. I want to make sure it works for us. I agreed to try it for 30 days, unless I started gaining. After that time, and I have an idea of how well it works, I'll spill all the details.
It was a hard decision to jump ship. I was doing phenomenal on the hcg. I was losing the regain, which usually does slip right back off. I knew once I got through that honeymoon phase, it would get hard. I must say that while the weight loss has been great for the most part, hcg is a mentally tough way to lose. It is so, so restrictive that it is hard to just go about life. That reason pushed me over the edge to give this a try. I can always go back to the hcg if this doesn't work.
As of Saturday, 65MD and I are using his plan. I'm preparing myself mentally for him to race down the scales much more quickly that me. It happened before. I will be happy for him for sure, and come here and rant and rave about it.
For the record, I have lost a total of 51.2 lbs and 27.25 inches since I began this journey in March 2009. I wish I'd taken more measures when I started, like my rib cage, and my abdomen (which is what I'm calling the space between my waist & hips). I'm doing them now but I don't have a beginning figure for those areas so I can't say for sure how many more inches would be added to that figure. Quite a few, I'd say.
Hopefully in mid-February, I'll be back with even more good news from the scales and the tape measure.
