  • What Could Getting Stuck In The Snow Possibly Have In Common With The HCG Diet?

    Girl Stuck In Snow
    For those of you that didn't already know, Suzy and I, along with our 3 children, live here in the beautiful state of Utah - And I have to say, it really is a wonderful place to raise a family.

    Another thing that we really love about Utah is that we are privileged to experience all of the 4 seasons - And it just so happens that this year has been one of the warmest ever recorded.

    However, you know what they say, "The hotter the summers, the colder the winters" and boy they weren't kidding. This winter we have had more nights below zero than I care to remember.

    Of coarse with all of the cold days and nights comes the snow - And there has been no shortage of that either. In fact, just a couple of weeks ago, they actually had to cancel school because of all the snow. Unfortunately, I have had to drive in it quite a bit too ... This also means that I have been getting stuck almost every other day.

    Now I am sure that you are all probably wondering what all of this has to do with the HCG Diet - Well the other day after I freed myself from being stuck yet again, I though to myself, being stuck in the snow is in a sense like being stuck on a Plateau.

    I'm sure I don't have to tell you that a weight loss stall, aka Plateau, can be very frustrating -- Because much like being stuck in the snow, the more you try to quickly get yourself out, the worse off you will usually become.

    But with a Plateau it's more psychologically frustrating than anything. However, like I have said before, the psychological part of the HCG Diet is just as important as any other part. Because if you are not in a positive frame of mind, you are only holding yourself back from reaching your full potential.

    And as discouraging as it may be, having a little stall in your weight loss is actually a pretty common occurrence.

    But still, as common as it is, most people think that once they have hit a Plateau they are doomed - Especially if they feel that they have caused the stall by cheating or otherwise not following the protocol completely.

    Nothing could be farther from the truth! The fact is we are all human. This means that we break the rules from time to time. And although a small cheat isn't good, it happens to almost all of us. After all, you are trying to correct a lifetime of bad habits in one months time.

    Common sense says you are bound to screw up at some point -- The hard part is forgiving yourself and moving past it. But if you hit a Plateau as a result of messing up, it can make it that much harder to move on. Because everyday that you are not losing ends up serving as reminder of what you did to cause it.

    But what can be even more frustrating than that, is when you hit a stall in your weight loss and you have no idea what has caused it.

    In either case it is helpful to keep a detailed journal of your HCG Weight Loss Journey - You can write about how much weight you lose each day, what you ate for your meals or even your frustrations with the diet.

    So whether you are stuck in the snow, or stuck on a Plateau, there is always something you can do to dig yourself out. Most of the time a simple Apple Day will do the trick. And if for some reason that doesn't do it for you, there is still a long list of other Plateau Breakers to choose from.

    But above all, keep in mind that no matter how long your weight loss stalls, it is only temporary - So try to keep yourself in a positive frame of mind. Because like most things in life, the mind plays a pivotal role in getting yourself back on track.
