A set back.

So annoying, went to the doctor she didn't have the shot in so I don't get to start until Thursday. On the plus side... I can eat some apple pie tonight. I did get weighed today I lost 5 pounds since my last appointment so that was encouraging. So... bring on Thursday... I got this!

Starting early!

Well my doctor's appointment got changed until tomorrow so... d-day is approaching. My first set of shots start tomorrow and I have two day of eating a regular amount of calories before starting the stricter 500 calories. Seem like so few... but reading the menu it actually doesn't seem to bad. Tomorrow I will do my first official weigh in and measurements and pictures. They wont' be pretty trust me. I'm stripped like a tiger with stretch marks but during this process of weight loss I will also be doing red light therapy to help with my skin! yay me! So excited to be a new woman in 6 weeks!! Time to get my little nugget to bed. Until tomorrow!

Introduction :)

My Name is Whitney the SOON to be Melting Mama. I have one son named Levi who just turned the big 1. :) I'm married to my big bad Marine and I love him to pieces. I'm starting this blog to document my journey over the next 6 weeks while I use the HCG diet. I am not using the one over the counter, i'm using it through my doctor's office and will be under a doctor's care for the entire 6 weeks. I'll be eating very little which for me will be ROUGH. But you can do anything for 6 weeks right? So feel free to join me through my trials and tribulations as I try to loose my 'baby' weight and get back into shape.... and not the round shape I currently am.

A little background, I'm 24 years old, I got pregnant with my little nugget in April of 2010. I gained a WHOPPING 58 pounds -__- ... My bad... I guess that doctor wasn't joking around when she said anything over 25 pounds was mine to keep... and I am keeping it quite well... in my butt, stomach, legs, arms, and face. Live and learn. So since having MooBaby who was only 9 pounds 4 ounces.. that left me at 187 pounds and even with exercise and dieting can't seem to get the weight off. So i'm hoping this is the key to my success. Along my journey I will post lots of pictures for you to follow along and for me to see if this MIRACLE is in fact a miracle. I will also refer to my son as many names since we have lots of nicknames for him... mostly MooBaby, Moo, Nugget, BooBoo... as to not confuse you I only have one child though sometimes if feels like I have 5 :) I will also be separated from my husband through the entire process and he will not see me until my hopeful transformation is complete! We are going to be moving from California (my home) to Oklahoma (not my home) and when I get there my husband will finally get to see me in all my glory. So if you were able to follow all that jumble from a very tired mama's brain, I hope you will follow me on my journey and if it works maybe it can help a few other's on there journey to weight loss success.  So the date this all goes down is February 1st 2012, can hardly wait for this all to begin... better get all my junk food eating out of the way now :*
