Shoot, even I'm getting bored with these updates. I need to go back and get some interesting video and links. I have no more pictures just yet.
I expected an even bigger gain today. I've had a lot of stress in my life the last few days and little to no sleep last night. Feel a little punky today, but I have two appointments I cannot miss. I'm going to see if I can reschedule the afternoon one though, so I may spend the day on the couch and I might as well get some interesting stuff posted here retroactively between naps. I hope naps. I hope naps and nothing else.
Also, my husband brought me a coconut oil chocolate last night. I'd already had two, but since I walked 4 miles, I figured I could get away with two; they're small. But I should have just declined the 3rd. The body doesn't seem to mind a little coconut oil and coco, and it doesn't seem to be so much about the calories, though it could be. It's a touchy program, and even the miles might not have offset the calories. That one extra piece was likely about 60-70 calories. I think it just bumped up beyond what the body needs in the way of oils, and then it causes storage. I didn't want it or need it. I wasn't hungry. I only ate it because it was nice of him to think of me. But he would gladly have eaten it had I said, 'No thanks.'
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
