The Next Steps

Ok, I promise I will blog more about the wedding as soon as I get the pictures. Hopefully she will be done editing the bazillions that she took by Thursday.

So anywho, things have really be crackin since the wedding. For the foster care stuff we have had the fire inspection (twice, cause he didn't fill out the papers right), the health inspection, the home study (also twice cause part of it got deleted). So things are rolling right along with that. On the home study, our agency kept saying we contract out to someone so that we can still look you in the face afterwards...WHAT?!?!?!? Yeah, not how it was at all. I am betting the contract out cause its a 5-7 hour process. That's just the interviews, then you have to write the whole 55 page document up. Thank goodness we didn't have to do that part. So, Sara-home study girl was super nice. She called me last Thursday adn was almost in tears, the individual interviews did not save. We would have to redo them. I was like no problem Sara, if that's the biggest hiccup we have, its all gravy. MMMM....gravy....I digress. So that is underway, should be around 2-3 weeks and we will know something, and soon hopefully be getting phone calls about little people.

In other news, Biker and I have started a new diet that a friend of ours SS did. SS lost 38 lbs in 25 days. He has lost numerous inches and obviously lbs. So Biker and I started on the HCG diet on Saturday. For the first 2 days you eat as much as you want of whatever you want. These are called Gorge Days (babygator is good at gorge days). Day 3-how ever long you choose to do it, maximum is 40 days you eat 500 calories a day. I know I know, sounds like crap. But you get 6 ounces of meat a day, 2 veggies, 2 fruits, 2 pieces of crappy I mean super yummy melba toat, and all the tea (even sweet tea is you use Stevia), water, and coffee you can drink. I don't drink coffee so this is not an issue for me.

Just let me say, if you do not have anything positive to say about my diet choices, keep your comments to yourself. I love you all, I need support not yucky comments. Since Saturday, I have lost 1 pound, Biker has lost 3. Isn't that precious? My goal is 30 lbs this round. I will be happy with 20 lbs, but I am really trying for 30. Bikers goal is 35lbs, and he will already on his way. I am super proud of him, cause usually he is all whoohooo about something and then when he starts day 2 its over. So Day 3 and going strong. Oh yeah, and you don't have to excercise. I will keep up with my walking cause I don't do much of it, but you don't have to.

So I am going to leave you now with yet another super awesome picture of the wedding. I swear more to come. As soon as I get them you guys can see them.

Girl I have NOTHING but great things to say about HCG! I just saw your post on the DIYHCG facebook page! I am doig the diet as well. Day 20, 18 on the 500 Cal phase! I have lost 18.4 pounds!! This stuff is awesome! If you are doing a full 40 days you can easily hit that 30 pound mark!! Don't worry that he has lost more, it is because we women tend to retain water and men don't! Just make sure you are drinking LOTS of water! Personally I try to get 4-5 quarts of water a day! Good luck to you and your man!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much y'all. I am really excited. I had shrimp and asparagus for lunch. OMG, I ate so much asparagus, and I really like it, but I can't eat one more stalk or I swear I am going to throw up. I have had 5 cups of water/tea so far, and I have pee-ed like a zillion times.

I have heard of the success of HCG. Is it expensive? Do you have to take supplements? What happens after 40 days? Do you have to start over? I can't wait to hear about your results. Hang in there.
