HCG – Round 1 VLCD 11
This is actually the first vlog I did where I stand up for a minute and you get a better idea of where my body is at. I mention that at this point I’m trying to get back into my size 16 clothes. That was March 2011. Today, April 2012, I wear a very comfortable size 4, and an occasional size 2 depending on the brand. I can now wear an old vest that when I first tried it on at my starting weight of 172 pounds, had a gap of literally, about 10-12 inches across my chest. It’s so crazy to think where I started! What’s even more amazing is all the other HCG youtubers out there who have made an even longer journey than myself- losing 100 pounds or more to get to their goal and maintenance weight.
I have a pair of goal jeans I show in this vlog (which have long since gotten way too big and then went back where they came from- the thriftstore). Get some goal clothes people! Seriously- you may think now that you won’t really lose weight on HCG Injections even though everyone else has (that’s what I found running through my mind at least), but just please, buy a pair of jeans that’s at least 2-3 sizes too small. And try them on. Take notice of how the zipper won’t zip up at all, of how far apart the hole and the button of the jeans is on your body, and at your fat squishing out between it. Or perhaps the feeling of how you can’t really pull up the jeans over your thighs or bottom, so the crotch part of the jeans is sitting 4″ below your real one. I’m not trying to be mean- seriously, do this, because then one day after you’ve been on HCG for a bit, you will pull those same jeans on and your jaw will drop when you they zip completely up….perhaps with a small muffin top, but still, they zip and button! Then, not much later, perhaps 5 days more, and the muffin top is gone. Then you’ll trade those goal jeans for another pair of goal jeans, another 2-3 sizes too small.
Do this, because it’s amazing how quickly sometimes we can adjust to our shrinking bodies and perhaps not see how much we’ve changed- but it’s not easy to forget how it felt and how it looked trying to wear those too small jeans, and then to physically see your body slide right into them 3 weeks or a month later. It’s then you know you’ve come far.
