So ok, I admit, I've gained a few too many extra pounds over the holiday season and frankly I need it gone--and fast!!! I'd really, really like to get down to a nice weight before starting injections, which I hear can cause weight gain--Eeek! The thought of (possibly) gaining 10-15 pounds during injections and not yet being prego scares me to death. With both of my kids, I gained 30-40 pounds during pregnancy. Adding 10-15lbs more to that freaks me out. So....i've come up with a plan. I've started the Cabbage Soup Diet two days ago in the hopes to drop 10 pounds fast. 10 pounds is my goal. This "diet" is only recommended to do for 7 days. After the seven days are up, I plan to continue on making healthy food choices to keep my weight down. This Cabbage Soup Diet is just my kick start to get things going. And yes, My Love (Eric-hubby), I will start to exercise (does walking the dog count?)!! ;) Side note: He's been begging me to get back into the gym. I kept saying, "how dare you....", but, I realize it's time. I wanted to start exercising when I was ready, not when someone else was telling me to do it.
I'm proud to say that the scale confirms I've already shed 4 pounds!!! I think that it's all water weight, but either way, I'm stoked! The cabbage soup doesn't taste as bad as a few people complained. I actually enjoy it--it's very soothing for me. Occasionally, to spice it up, i add hot sauce and it brings out a whole new flavor. I've also heard that you can add different seasonings to make different flavors--like Italian, oriental, ect. My next pot I think I will make it more of an oriental flavoring. Mmmm!! My mouth is literally watering at the thought.
So, here goes!! Wish me luck and send positive vibes that this weight just melts right off. Happy New Year, everyone =)
Oh!!!! I totally forgot to mention: My IP's, Eleazar and Angie, had their screenings and lab work done two days ago. Mine is scheduled for next Wednesday. I pray that both our results come back quickly and we can swiftly move forward and start contracts ASAP!! Let's get baby makin' people!
