Day 7 or I forgot to eat my apple AGAIN?

I planned this round of HCG very carefully.  I have a really hard time waking up early on Sunday mornings, so I wanted that to be my 7th day.  You know?  The one where you don't shoot yourself in the leg to give your body a bit of a rest?  Yeah, that one.

The problem is this:  Here it is, just past noon, almost time for me to eat lunch I might add, and I still haven't eaten my morning apple.  Why is that?  Well, because I woke up at 10.  You can't eat for a full hour after waking up.  At 11 I was just starting to get ready and putting the Munchkin into the tub for his morning soak.  Now here I sit, blogging at 12:15 PM, hungry, and wondering why.  Then I remember, oh yeah, I forgot to eat my apple AGAIN! 

This happens regularly.  I routinely forget to take my morning apple with me to work.  Sure I remember my lunch, but remembering a tiny little apple seems like almost too much for my brain this round.  I don't get it. 

But, the good news is that I have lost about 5 lbs, so I'm really quite happy.  My once-tight-then-too-loose-then-too-tight designer jeans now fit only snugly instead of the "I can't breathe when I wear these" fit, and I'm starting to need the assistance of a belt again to keep them up once they stretch out.  I no longer have to pour myself into them, too, which is nice.  I really hated jumping up and down to get them up.

I'm taking my measurements tomorrow.  My first round I took them daily. My second round I only took them the first week.  This round I think I'll stick with once weekly and be surprised by the progress I'm making....hopefully in the right direction! ;)

  1. 5lbs is awesome!
    I took my measurements weekly or sometimes twice a week. It worked out well. Isn't it so cool to actually FEEL a difference in the way your clothes fit so quickly?!

    Today is my last load day, I feel so gross and yet I know I need to eat more. I'm scared for tomorrow!
