It's less than 50 days before our wedding in January, so I guess this is about the time that most bride-to-be's start doing the training to get in shape or lose the last few pounds so we can fit into those dresses. For me, I had gained about 10 pounds in the last 2 months (since I took home my dress). So on a petite frame like mine, 10 pounds = 1-2 dress sizes. Yeah, my "skinny" jeans don't fit me right anymore. It's like, hello, MUFFIN-top. That was my realization last weekend when I tried to slip into my favorite jeans for a party. YIKES. I can't afford to buy new larger jeans that fit. Not now, with all the wedding bills to pay!
Back to the diet. Here's a link to where I bought my HCG sublingual drops. I only plan on doing this diet for 2 weeks, using their 15 day plan. It takes a LOT of discipline. I mean seriously, it's not easy. I have to cut down my calories to 500 per day, take the drops 3 times a day, and cut out all sugar and carbohydrates. Exercise? Good thing is, the diet discourages doing too much exercise due to the low calorie intake - so no guilt trips driving past the gym. But I am still able to walk my dog for 20-30 minutes.
We'll see how I do on the diet this time around. I don't have as much to lose as I originally did, but hopefully the weight falls off just as quick it did in January. Some people think this way sounds crazy, but I know people who have tried it after seeing results on me and my fiance, and for those who stuck to the diet, it worked for them too! At least 20 pounds was lost (within 1 month) for each person we knew.
Looking foward to fitting back into my skinny jeans. And most important, my wedding dress.
Should I post my progression online? I won't share my starting weight, but I think I'll keep a tally of the weight loss on my GE Designs Facebook Page. Just to prove how quick this can happen. Or not. Wish me luck!
