This one is tough..... I suppose since I don't have alot to lose and I'm far into the normal range but just "want" a few more lbs... hcg doesn't cooperate like it used to lol! Going for another 10 days on P2, so we'll see. If I see 120-ANYTHING on my scale, I will be HAPPY!!!!! Even 129. Middle number needs to read "2"... Everyone cheer me on! My not even 3 lb loss in this round is a tough pill to swallow... but I know I'm working on the last SERIOUSLY... few lbs. I look great in clothes. Super skinny. I'm putting on a bikini in 5 wks though for my beach trip, and I wanna be hawt!!!!!
1.4 down, 1lb under my pre-load weight, still 1.8 lbs above last rounds LIW... had two hard boiled eggs this AM and tonight I'm going to have the Dynamatize Elite Whey Protein Shake - PB Chocolate flavor (with water) =) 250 calories for a double serving. So that's what I'm doing!
Crossing my fingers... the goal of 125 needs to happen!
You read THAT correctly! :) Down 7.6 lbs - so .4 more to go before I'm down my loading weight, and 3.2 to go before I'm at R2 LIW. =/ that's annoying... Anyhow! I did a P2 "steak day" and was seriously down 7.6 lbs. I swear by these steak days lol! Had hamburger patty on the GF (extra lean) with del's sauce, a laughing cow wedge, low sugar ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomatoes and grilled fresh mushroom. :) Crossing my fingers for good loss!
Yes, you read correctly. Apparently, that's how I roll! Every weekend in P4 for me has been a massive gain & I've brought it down every Monday with a Steak Day.
I'm doing an "off protocol" P2 steak day today because I KNOW they work... and ell... with 8 lbs I NEED it lol. My LIW last round was 135. SUCKS starting at 137.8 but whatever. I'm going to make it to 125 if it kills me!!!!! (holy crap that's 20 lbs from this morning's weight).... Stay tuned!
Well, I decided to do a very short round ... didn't think I'd be doing it... but I REALLY want to reach my goal of 125-127 before I go to the beach. I've come this far, WHY NOT!? And I know it can be done because this diet is amazing! I'll be loading Sat. & Sun. & starting VLCD's on Monday. Yippee! What I'm doing is completely off protocol (13 day round) but if you want to try & talk me out of it... don't bother =) I've done plenty of risky type off-protocol stuff before and the only thing that has really caused me a problem was CHEATING my last round lol. It was a bad cheat... and I look at it this way - if I'd behaved that one night I wouldn't be doing another round now. I lost a week!!!
This is my personal blog relating to my daily experiences while on the HCG diet. Hopefully it will help encourage others on the protocol, and at the same time, help me to look back and see my own progress. :)
I am 31 years old, recently married, have 2 children and 2 step-children. I haven't struggled with weight loss until recently, maybe over the past two years. In my pregnancy with my youngest child, who is now almost 7, I gained 70 lbs, and within a matter of 9 months was able to lose 75 lbs like it was nothing. Four years later I had packed on half of that weight, but went through a divorce and lost the majority of it. After the stressful part of the divorce, I started to get "happy" and gain it all back. ;) So today, 3 years later and just married to an amazing man, I'm happier than ever, and also bigger than I've ever been (excluding pregnancy). I've found that casual dieting doesn't work for me. I have no willpower when it isn't "black and white" for me. That's what attracted me to the HCG diet... I came across a couple of friends who introduced me to the HCG diet and had lost 50 and 20 pounds and looked AMAZING! I decided, even though the protocol is very restrictive, this diet was for me. It's a lifestyle change, and the maintenance to keep the weight off is exactly what I've needed! My goal is to lose 20-25 lbs, and keep it off!
