Today is very low calorie day 11 of Round 4. I am doing well. I have lost 20 pounds in 11 days, and yes, that does include my loading gains. My LIW was 167, so I will be in new territory soon. I am happy with my progress, and I am content with where I am. I am hoping to get in the low 150s or high 140s before rotating into Phase 3. (I would like to stabilize at 155ish.) I have 32 days left in my round, so I do not think this is outside the realm of possibility.
I am noticing
Round 4 VLCD 8: Starting Over Sort-Of
So, today is VLCD 8 of Round 4. I have had a very successful HCG journey. I am amazed at the transformation in my health, body, and life that I have observed in the past year. I have lost 130 pounds. Well, as of today, I have lost a net of 126 pounds. Yes, there is a story behind that.
I have mentioned in at least one post on the forum that I am a glutton. It’s true – ugly, but true. I come from a family of big eaters. I
Happy New Year To All, Update
After all the dooms-day rumors we have heard over the past year, we actually made it to 2013. Happy New Year to you!! I hope each and every one of you are successful in your endeavors.
I am up today. It is strange really. My husband took me out to one of our favorite restaurants for New Year’s Eve. I ate what I wanted, pie and all. New Year’s Day, nothing. My weight was steady. I ended up fasting until dinner and then eating phase
Whew, the Christmas season is rapidly passing me by. We just got back from Christmas at my husband’s brother’s house. We spent 3 nights with Hub’s eldest brother, got to see family we have not seen in almost a year, and have yet another Christmas feast. I indulged. Although, I did watch the scale. I have stabilized about 1.5 pounds under LIW during round 3. For this Christmas celebration, I ate what I wanted, pie and all. So, after two and ½ days of eating like a pig (I am on phase 4 BTW)
What is it about weight loss that causes such an upheaval in emotions? I cannot for the life of me imagine why being almost to my healthy goal weight makes me so vulnerable. I am coming to the conclusion that my weight, or at least most of my weight was my wall…My sad, fat, protection from others. I have lost 130 pounds. I began at 296. I have been morbidly obese my entire life. I have tried to loose weight, had some success (30 – 50 pounds) and then gained it back and more. This is the story
As of Thursday of this week, I have been exercising for 3 weeks. I have quit fighting my weight gain and have settled as 189.4 as my new target weight. 186.2 was my Last Injection Weight on June 30, 2012. So, in the grand scheme of things, I am not too bothered by my new target weight of 189.4.
So, three weeks ago I began to add back in bicycling 3-4 times per week. Then the next week, I added some calisthenics such as sit-ups, push-ups, back extensions, squats, and other stuff.
Well, this week my weight has been up. Monday, I was 189.2. Yesterday, I was up to 190.4. I did a steak day yesterday. I had heavy whipping cream in my morning coffee, tuna and mayo for lunch, and a 10-ounce steak for dinner. My calories were 800ish.
It is amazing to me (will I ever cease to be amazed??) how foods affect my body. And, I suppose that is one of the benefits to completing the HCG Protocol. Sunday, I was 187.4. I ate lunch at my cousin’s house. All the food
Yesterday, the scale was kind to me. I weighed 187.6 and had stuck at that weight for 2 days. However, today was different. I stepped on the scale at 4:30 am and weighed 190.0. I went back to bed thinking (hoping) that another hour of sleep would help get rid of some water. I stepped on the scale at 6:00 this morning the weigh 190.6. EEK!!!
Soooo, today is a steak day as I am 4.4 pounds over my LIW. WHEW! That is a lot! There are a couple things I am considering that

Phase 4 Day 18: Randomness
What an amazing journey 2012 has been. I am so thankful for the doctor and pharmacist who approached me about the HCG Diet. I am holding steady with my weight. I can indulge without blimping up. I do not crave the bad stuff any more. I crave whole foods…meats and vegetables and good fats. I love putting my clothes on each morning. I love feeling great. I would not go back for anything in the world, even though Friday’s ENT doc thinks it would be

Phase 4 Day 14: The Big Easy Without a Scale and RANT
Today I am on Phase 4 Day 14 and I am 188.0 (1.8 above my LIW). I am fine with that. Really fine. In fact, I did a major happy dance with I saw the scale. You see, I have been in New Orleans since Monday. I got back Thursday afternoon late. I did not have my scale the entire time in New Orleans. And, to make matters worse, as far as I saw there are no vegetables in The Big Easy. Well, that may be an exageration. They had
