I think I found my magic number for calories. That would be 1200. I lose on anything else. Staying strong and still following protocol 100%
Okay, all things considered I had a great week. I realized a few things. When I would work out or go for a walk, I tended to not drink my water which caused a gain. I saw 193 on the scale this week and I refuse to change my ticker back to the gain I had after that. I had a planned cheat day this week as I knew I would be in a situation where I could not control the food but did very well considering!
I start this week off with a 3 lb loss but that is really probably water retention
Finally broke the 10 lb. mark! Weighed in this morning at a loss of 10.4 lbs. The small changes I have made along the way seem to have been paying off. Cut out the fruit and the bread sticks (melba toast) and the addition of walking and Apple Cider Vinegar every morning (2 tablespoons).
Weight lost since last weigh-in: 1.0 lbs.
Weight lost overall: 10.4
Days on HCG plan: 13 (includes 2 loading days)
Yesterday went quite well - I stuck to protocol for P3 and ended up at 1100 calories at the end of the day & I drank 96 oz of water. Today I was still down a bit, so today I will up my calories just a smide to see what that does. Now to decide what I am having for breakfast!
I am on day 25 of P3. I have decided to stay in P3 for longer, not sure how long but I will move to P4 when I feel ready. My first 3 weeks was very unstable and stressfull because of it. This round I realized I cannot add a bunch of stuff right away. I might have a problem with cottage cheese and yogurt but have not tried them again to find out because I am to scared to gain.
My last steak day was Wed. February 26th when I was over 2.4 pounds.
2/27 I only lost 1.4 pounds from
So I attempted to do the HCG 500 calorie protocol to a TEE this time, with four previous failed attempts. After the first week I knew I was in trouble because I would get so nauseas and sick when I saw chicken. I then found that I had run out of HCG drops and couldn't afford to buy another $100 bottle. I gradually weened off the HCG diet and started dieting a way I felt was more suitable for ME. I still eat under 800 calories per day. I reintroduced things like organic ranch (50 cals per tbsp.),
Weighed in yesterday Morning first thing, like always, and had no weight loss. Still stuck to my usual routine, with a few extra minutes of walking and still taking the apple cider vinegar and the weight dropped again another 2.2 pounds!
Weight loss since last weigh-in: 2.2 lbs
Weight loss overall: 8.8 lbs
Days on plan: 11 (includes 2 loading days)
Ok so ive been off and on hcg since my dads 70th day last year. I know the yo-yoing is bad and to be honest i'm fed up of it. I start, stay on for a few days then just kaput I give up. So im about 3lbs over my ldw of 186.2.
And I have been wracking my brain as to how I was successful on my 23day round last year and I realized it was because 1) I blogged 99% of the time 2)My head was in the game 3) I chewed flavoured gum throughout to help 4) I had absolutely NO cravings!
I finally received my HCG in the mail today. I ordered it from reliablerxpharmacy. 3, 5000 IU vials of feritgyn. I went searching all over town for supplies and Dr. Simeons protocol foods. I couldn't find lean ground chicken so I settled for chicken breasts and 96% beef(not cheap by the way.) I couldn't find a mixing needle so I just used a baby medicine dropper....which resulted in me not being able to get the hcg out of the vial and into the container very easily. Some glass ended up breaking
I had a gain today but felt really good, so was surprised. I chalked it up to being a women! So I decided to take my measurements to see what's up.
Here are my new measurements, I will take my rebalancing success today to keep me going!
Week 3 measurements (days) day 17 gain to 198.2. Been bouncing a little up and down between 196.4-198.2, and not consistent on my water so that is probably why.
Measurements from Day 1
