Interesting day

Hello my sweets! First, let me introduce you to a new blog, - this is a friend of mine who has begun her journey! Welcome to the blogosphere! Everyone wave hello! :)

Oh where to start. I'm fairly certain I'm having that TOM. I have a huge "underground" zit on my chin that huuuuuurts, I feel bloated, and my emotions oscillate between melancholy and irritation. At least the weather is cooperating and we actually have all the windows open. It's nice to have a fresh breeze inside the house.

I'm on a new computer (my husband just bought himself a new one so I got his old one which is, well, like a new one, especially with all the crap I had on my old one). I'm transferring files and cleaning things up. It's Spring, and it's time for a Spring Cleaning, not only with the house, but my computer, as well as me - very appropriate time for me to start a round.

Speaking of cleaning, I am determined to pick up that old goal of going room by room tossing or donating anything that hasn't been used in 6 months (unless it's seasonal). 1 room a day. That's my goal. If I can do more, great, but 1 room a day at least.

Speaking of the new round (well, we were a little bit ago), I reread over my last round. Eek. I forgot how hard that round was. I was determined to never do a round again. Here I am, back to Round 2 weight (I only released 6 pounds that round so not a huge biggie - it was AFTER that round I lost more weight, but it's back). Here I am, off to do another round. I called last round my see-saw round. I hope it won't be so frustrating again, but I need to be mentally prepared that I may not lose weight this round and if I do, it may not be much. I need to concentrate on the inches more than the pounds, and I need to be prepared that anything lost could be minuscule. I will also be SO careful to stay within the 2 pound mark of my LDW rather than allowing myself to continue to drop. I'm doing this right.

OK, that's enough from me.



I just reread the blog. Came to a comforting realization. I've been  in my healthy BMI range for over a year!

One thing I've learned this round, and that I'm sure you already know is that each round is different. I imagine this next round of yours will be different from your last round. Here's hoping you have a better round! The hcg does make you want to attack every area of your life and shine a light on those dim areas! --sometimes a good thing and sometimes a bad thing, I'm finding....

hugs to you.

You're so right! My goodness, rounds are like children, aren't they? You never know what to expect with each one. I think since I'm at a healthy weight (and a size 6 for heaven's sake), and having gone through a round starting at this weight, I hope I can truly make this my zen round. The round where I expect nothing. I let go and go with the flow, and allow what happens to happen. I want to follow the rules to a T and let go. This round will be the first one where I'll be doing yoga and pilates regularly. I am so curious!

Best wishes for a successful round!
I really don't think any two rounds are the same, you have to kind of prepare yourself for that fact.

Lavenderdiva, you are absolutely correct about HCG shining a light on all the dim corners of your life. I'm struggling and trying to conquer my binge eating. I think I figured out the why of it's the how.
