Phase 2 and Thanksgiving Plans

If you read my last post, you know what happens when you don't follow the protocol...disaster. You also know by now that if you follow the protocol, the weight comes off. With that being said, I have decided to enjoy Thanksgiving. If I gain weight, which I'm sure I will, I know exactly what to do to lose it. I am planning to give myself my last injection on Sunday morning, follow a VLCD for Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday and then cheat Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, I will resume injections and my VLCD. Those are my plans. I'll let you know how it goes!

It's been a long time...I'm on Phase 2 again

So it's been a long time since I've posted. When I hit the 30 pound mark, I somehow managed to lose all momentum and discipline! I think part of it is because in the beginning of the year, I weighed 241. I managed to lose 23 pounds over the course of 7 months before starting HCG and by the end of September, including my HCG losses, I had hit the 50 pound mark. Needless to say, I felt like I was looking so much better that I figured I could stop a few weeks earlier than planned. I gave myself my last injection and followed the diet that day. The next day was crazy busy and I ended up going to dinner with family that night. I had lots of veggies and protein...not phase 2 and showed a gain of 1.5 pounds the next day. I was good on for the next few week although I had to do a steak day twice. At the end of the first week, I was at a party where they were making smores over a campfire. Smores are my FAVORITE! I showed NO self restraint and had quite a few. Amazingly enough, the scale showed only a .2 gain the next morning. I figured "Oh, my body must have already adjusted...I guess I can have sugar and starch now." That day, I went to a birthday party where they were serving pizza, soda, and ice cream. I had all 3. Not a ton like I would have in the olden days, but a little. Boy was I surprised when I stepped on the scale the next day and saw that I had gained 9 pounds!!!!! I didn't even think that was possible. I did a steak day the next day, but it didn't help. I decided right then and there that enough was enough. I was leaving the next day to go out of the country for a week and would be travelling extensively in the states the following week. I decided to make it my goal to maintain at the level of the 9 pound gain...not pretty, but what could I do. For the last 6 weeks, I have maintained at 198ish. When I started this round of Phase 2, I weighed 198.8. After my load days, I weighed 201. I have now been back on track for a week and am down under my lowest weight. Anyway, that's where I've been.

This is my before and after virtual me! I have done 1 round of HCG and lost 30 pounds! I started at a size 20/22 and am now a size 14/16. I LOVE HCG! I plan to do another round in 4 more weeks!

29 days...28 pounds

Today makes 29 days and I have lost 28 pounds! I love HCG! Also, yesterday I went from being obese to just being overweight! I think that's pretty exciting! If you have a weight problem, I highly recommend HCG!

I cheated...UGH!

On Saturday, I had 3 bites of ice cream and some garlic butter rice. On Sunday, I was up 1/2 a pound. I was strict with my eating on Sunday, but on Monday morning, I had gained another pound! Today is Tuesday and I am now only .2 pounds away from where I was Saturday morning...which means I will have spent at least 3 days trying to do undo a few bites of food. It's so not worth it! This program works when you do it right!

3 weeks down!

Today makes 3 weeks since I started injections. I have lost 24 pounds in that time which is amazing considering the first 2 days were loading days. I am planning on doing 40 shots in this round and another round of 40 shots later on. I am hoping that this will get me where I need to be!

Starting weight: 218.8
Current weight: 194.8

Total Loss: 24 pounds WOOHOO!

2 weeks...

I have now made it through 2 weeks of VLCD (or for the uninitiated, Very Low Calorie Days). I have lost 21 pounds and am feeling great. I have lost over 3 inches from my waist! It is absolutely amazing! I highly recommend HCG to anyone out there!

Starting weight: 218.8
Current weight: 197.8 It's so great to weigh less than 200 pounds! :-)
