Today is April 23rd and it's been a week since I started the VLCD portion of the HCG. My results have been amazing so far; however, I know that I could have done a better job. The last couple of days I haven't been on the diet as I should be, grabbing food here and there really slows down wait loss, stalls or worse leads to a slight gain. That's what happened to me but I'm back on track today and will continue pushing the next 3 weeks. Here are my results!!!
Apr 16: 262.2 lbs
Today I was horrified to see I had gained a pound on the scale. I had decided I was going to stop the drops on this day. Yesterday was day 25 for me of VLCD and my weight was 128.6 lbs. my goal was 125. I have been struggling to lose anymore weight, and also been bouncing up and down between 130 and 129 for almost 2 weeks. I am so sick of the same foods that I decided to just accept I got down to 128 and move on to P3. However this morning I was at 129.6! How can this be?!!!! I wanna cry. I didn't

Down 2.8 so .4 from start weight.
I had 3.5 chicken and lettuce for lunch and dinner. I have the tilapia I cooked that I need to eat and also strawberries and a grapefruit along with cucumbers and broccoli. I just feel like all the other foods are smaller my choices take longer to eat.
God, if I am supposed to mix it up, which has always been an issue with me, than please give me the willingness to eat a variety of foods.
I have made the decision not to weigh
Today is my VLCD day 25, starting weight was 140lbs, this morning's weigh in was 128 lbs. my goal was to make it to 125. However it's taken this long to only lose 12 pounds and frankly, I'm just sick of the same foods. I have not cheated, or tried anything rogue so I guess I just have to accept this is as far as I go. I was a little dissapointed because I was expecting the scale to move faster. My first round a year ago I lost 20 lbs, and this time around my loses were really small each day, and

Down 2.0. I expected more. That's what lands me into trouble every time....expectations.
Yesterday I had 3.5 chicken and spring mix, strawberries for both fruit and 3.75 oz tilapia
I'm going to weigh tomorrow and not again until fri and Saturday.
God is good. I am blessed. I am happy.
This is not too hard!!
I had ham yesterday and it was so salty. I did not use any salt on phase 2. I did not eat that much or any carbs. I did not have my bm befor I weighed in. I really feel it was from th salt so I am being careful today to avoid a steak day. Man it was such a shock. Has this happened to anyone? I am technically only 1 pound over liw. But still. I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter diner.
This is the 2nd day of loading. I think the REAL reason for loading is because they want you to feel so full of fat & calories that you feel like crap and don't want to eat another thing for 41 days. I feel like I am going to burst at the seams. This is my 2nd and FINAL round. I cannot wait until it is over.

Yesterday while I was at work I got my period. It was a little earlier than usual and I have had a lot of cramps that don't make it easy. I found out recently that I had developed an ulcer from the high amount of ibuprofen my pain management doctor asked me to take for my back (degenerative disc disease/herniated discs), and was instructed to switch to something else like tylenol for a bit, but tylenol doesn't do jack shit for my cramps. Oh well. I lost a pound today which brings me to a total of
Today is April 20th and this is my 5th day on the low calorie part of the HCG diet. So far it's been amazing!!!! Seeing results every single morning, motivates me so much just to keep eating lean and clean. I've been following the diet almost 100% and I say almost because I was extremely light headed to the point I was going to pass out on day 3. I played some pickup basketball games and I could feel my body shutting down on me. I was drinking loads of water the day before and during the games.
Down 3.4 after day 1. Which seems good except I gained 8.6 in two days. Over 4 each day.
I do feel like I'm full of poop. I took 4 magnesium pills this am, instead of the usual 3. I wonder if my body is immune to those since I've been taking them for so long. I did take a tsp of natural calm at 2. We shall see.
Yesterday I had 3.5oz chicken on spring mix with salt free spices , stevia and acv
Both meals and 2 apples.
2 big coffees with 1/2 T of cocoa and stevia
