I’ve gotten to a point in my body shape/size right now, that I’m just kind of… well. Disgusted..
I’m back at my pre-pregnancy weight.
I’m back. It took 11 months but I did it.
I know you’re wondering – Isn’t that a GOOD thing?!!!
No. It’s not.
See… I for some strange reason have lost weight both of my pregnancies. I started both of my pregnancies at about this current weight (which, I am too embarrassed to admit… so lets just call it JUMBO.) And then slowly taper down to about 30lbs lost over the course of the pregnancy. After delivering weighing even less. – but then slowly creeping it back towards this Jumbo weight.
So I’ve often tried to figure out (besides becoming bulimic – which you might argue that puking is most the reason for my weight-loss during pregnancy…) WHY I tend to be smaller when I’m pregnant and larger when I’m not?!
Then I came across the HCG diet. I was researching diets, and someone from a forum I belong to was talking about how they were going to start the HCG Diet – and I got really curious!
So I researched it. The HCG actually tricks your hypothalamus into believing that it’s pregnant, and therefore releasing the stored fats to be used.
That should work for me, Right?
There’s a lot of really awesome success stories out there! I watched through a whole VLog series as one woman went from 156lbs to 124lbs over the course of a few months. Crazy really. but AWESOME. I want that!
So I contacted a great company – HCG Program Direct and got set up to review their products on my blog – so all of you mommies (and daddies, granmda’s, grandpas, etc) have a chance to see how it’s working for me, and then try it on yourselves I’ll be blogging through much of it (I can’t possibly promise daily posts – but weekly for sure!)
I have the perfect window of opportunity to do this program and lose some weight before the Holidays come around… I’m excited to get back into some of my older clothes that have been put back into my ‘someday’ box.
I’m going to add a section on the dropdown menu about this diet – so you can follow along with me: www.grinningcheektocheek.com/category/hcg-diet
