I am fast approaching the end of my weight loss journey. I’m down to 134. Exactly 25 pounds lighter than I was at New Years! Even though I had wanted to hit 130 or 127, I am extremely happy with the way my body looks now, so I think that today will be my last day taking the drops. Right now I am looking slender yet I still have my curves, but if I were to lose another 5 pounds I would risk losing another bra size, and I definitely don’t want that to happen! And if I do decide I want to lose a few more pounds, I don’t need the drops to do it. Really, I just want to start focusing on toning those parts that I am least happy with, namely, my triceps and my thighs.
In reality, this second round of the HCG drops was kind of a waste, because I only lost about 5 pounds, or 9 if you count those loading days. I can’t blame it on anything but myself, however, because I had several cheating episodes and I drank at least 3 times the allowed amount of milk every day. I was only a few days into this round of HCG when I realized that I probably shouldn’t have even started it. I had been losing weight on the maintenance phase and probably would have continued to do so. But I decided to go ahead and at least do the required 3 weeks, mainly because my mom is doing the drops and it would be easier for me to give her my support if I was doing it as well. She’s down about 15 pounds.
I did another “photo shoot” (in the bathroom at my job, and by my desk) so you could see my progress.
