I'm a Rockstar!

After losing nothing yesterday, I woke to a 1.4 release this morning! Thank you, HCG Gods!

For this round I'm down 25. 4 pounds, so I've met the Rockstar Challenge to lose 25 pounds. I'm hoping to lose even more, but I might be cutting this round short.

For over two weeks now I've been dealing with hunger. The stomach growling kind of hunger. The great releases I've had have kept me from cheating, but it's made me miserable at times. So I tried upping my dosage from 150iu to 175iu but after four days and a brand new batch of hcg, the hunger was just as bad. So yesterday I dropped down to 125iu. I still have hunger, but I'm going to give it a few days before I monkey with the dosage again, give my body time to adjust.

The hunger is the reason I'm thinking of cutting this round short, although I'm loathe to end the weight release party I've been having. But starting Monday, September 13th I'm going to CNA school. It's a six week course, five days a week, and I just don't think I can do the first week or two if I have hunger. I'm 33 and it's been a looooong time since I went to school. Plus it's a subject I never saw myself studying, I was drawn to English and History. Math and Science and the thought of being a nurse or a nurse's assistant never once crossed my mind. But I enjoy my work as a home health care companion, so I'm willing to give it my all.

I think in order to give my brain the best chance at absorbing all the new info, I need to make sure it's fed properly. So if I can't get my hunger under control I'll start P3 on the 13th. But we shall see. I hate ending this round, but my classes will be from 9am to 2:30pm every day, and I really want to do well. Because the course is expensive and I can't afford not to put every effort towards it. And did I mention I'm super nervous? I know a lot of the stuff I do as a home health care companion are similar to CNA duties, but I'm just freaking out about going back to school. Because that's what I do. lol

Off to go shopping with the Hubs. I'm planning on hitting the Halloween store because the Halloween festivities start early in my home! Lots of love, encouragement and wishes for happy releases to all!
