Wednesday Weigh-in & Waist Measures

I woke up with a major stomach issue this morning.  I'm not sure what it is all about.  I'm not sick as though I have the stomach flu.  I am able to be up and about, but I can't be too far from the bathroom.
I'm bloated and I feel it.

My weight is the same from last week and my measures are up a bit.  I'm putting a big asterisk by these measure because I don't think they are real.

This is getting frustrating for me.  It seems that a lot of the bloggers that I follow are having a hard time seeing results.  It seems that we are all struggling to stay on plan. Even with extreme determination and the memories of feeling good at a healthier weight, none of us can actually get any momentum.

I am strongly considering going back to the hcg.  I had just started it again this summer when I stopped because of the impending surgery.  I've still got it, and had planned to use it to get those last 10 or so pounds off at the end my my journey.  Now, I'm thinking use it now to get the ball rolling again.

It shouldn't be this hard!


  1. I agree it shouldn't but do what you feel is best right now, if the hcg can help I say go for it.

  2. Don't give up Lori! If I'm not giving up, you can't give up! What's that old Marine saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going." We can't let a bump in the road throw us totally off track.

  3. I just personally hate the hcg with all I've read about it. I think you need to give your body some more time. Hip replacement is MAJOR surgery! You are going to have swelling on random days even weeks after the surgery. Plus, you are female and that comes with all sorts of other bloating issues. Also, you said your tummy is all out of whack today. I think your body needs more healing time in more ways than just the hip. You do what you think is best, but just stop and really evaluate before switching gears again.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. I talked a good bit with my niece about the whole thing today. She was in your camp as well. I so appreciate wise counsel. I'll probably do a post about my conversation & decision soon.
