HCG in 2011!

Happy New Years, Hcgers!

Today is my first loading day of round 4 and it could not have come at a better time. I allowed the scale to creep upwards recently, but I take full responsibility for making bad food choices. I've been working a lot and I didn't watch what I was eating, and then the past few weeks I've just been eating and eating.

It appears that I am a cold weather snacker.


Perhaps it would not be so bad if I opted to eat mostly veggies, but alas that is not the case.

I haven't quite undone all the efforts of round 3, but just about. I'm determined to do a longer round this time (at least 30 days) and to have a strict and successful p3 this time around! I think I had such an easy time in round 1 that I just assumed that I'd be fine in round 2 and 3, and yet each time I've gotten worse. Sometimes it takes a screw up to get you back on track... or several screw ups. Let's not think about it too much.

It's tempting to not load properly, for fear of the scale gods judgment, but I know that I'd only be setting myself up for a horrible first week of p2. With that in mind, I have stuffed myself full of food today and tomorrow calls for more of the same.

It's nice to finally make a New Years Resolution that I know I can keep: to lose weight. 2011 will be the year I reach Onderland, and stay there the rest of my adult life! I cannot wait!

My other resolutions:

~To be kinder, in thought and actions, towards strangers and even more importantly my friends and family.

~To be a better blogger (this is in regards to my book blog)

~To vlog more for HCG... I bet I would have made more of an effort to maintain if I'd been keeping video track of it. Grr.

~To spend more time with my crazy family. And hope to serve as a positive role model for my wayward niece.

~To learn to say no to work if it interferes with my diet. It was nice having the extra money this Christmas, but I didn't have time to properly take care of me. I will practice saying "No, I can't work that shift" in the mirror daily until I can say it to my bosses too. And to not feel guilty about that. I love my job, I love my clients, but I need to lose weight in order to be a better worker.

~To not treat vegetables like the enemy in p3. I'm just not a veggie girl, but if I can make friends with the green ones during p2 then there's no reason we can't remain friendly in p3.

~To be more grateful. I am truly blessed. I have a wonderful, loving and supportive husband. I have an amazing, though crazy, family. My friends are the best people I know, the family I choose. My online friends, both the hcgers and book blogging community, have supported me and entertained me. I have a roof over my head, I have clothes, though they are going to be looser and looser on me, I have transportation, I have food. And I have a God who loves me. Sometimes I just need to stop and take time to appreciate all the wonderful blessings that fill my life.

~To drink more tea!

I'm sure I have lots more, but these are the biggest ones. I need to head to bed early tonight, I need to sleep and digest all the crap I just forced myself to eat. I swear, next time I load, I am only buying a few items at a time. I always buy more than I could possibly eat even back in my snack down heydays. Still, I manage to eat plenty on loading days. I was planning on doing a Olive Garden run tomorrow, because I have a gift card, but it might have to wait until next time.

So what are some of your resolutions?

I do the SAME THING. I still have shit in my freezer I bought from my last load! Good lord!

I love your resolutions. I am extremely grateful for this online community as well. It makes all the difference.

I resolve to eat more veggies and to laugh more. :) I'm also giving up fear. So there.

HUGS to you and happy 2011!!
