I can't believe I waited 19 days before this reunion to diet! I lost 35 pounds for the 35 year reunion and for this 50th one…I gained 50 instead. Normally I wouldn't even go but the older you get, the less you care, obviously.
I actually invested in the HCG diet this time. With this diet, you give yourself injections in your belly like a diabetic (just getting myself used to it before it happens), but you can only eat 500 calories a day. I don't know if you've ever tracked your calories but 500 isn't even 1 meal. So I believe it is actually the diet that makes you loose this weight- duh!
The theory is that the hormone HCG is found in pregnant women and if they are ever in a famine the HCG will prevent the body from attacking the fetus for food, instead it eats on the fat cells. Great idea, but I am clearly not in the mood for a famine. Who knows if this works because I am too hungry to think. This is only day 1 and I lost 1 pound.1 pound isn't doing a bit of a difference.
The last time I did Pilates to loose the weight, clearly a smarter move, but what can you do in 19 days?
How about the cabbage soup diet? Basically you eat cabbage soup until you are full. I can not stomach cabbage soup ever again because I tried it along with every other fad diet out there.
So maybe I will just be happy with who and what I am at this junction and tell everyone it was a happy 50 and not a bad 50 pounds... Any suggestions?
