  1. GiGy 2015 R1P2VLCD2

    No loss. No gain. <sigh> I hope this isn't a sign of what is to come this time around. I got pretty much NO sleep last night, maybe an hour or two in 15-minute increments. Both DH and I were both snoring, and waking each other up. I am the bigger culprit, though. Due to stuffy nose, I couldn't use my CPAP and I kept him up all night, and he kept shaking me to stop me snoring.... or to start me breathing again. It was not a good night for either of us. And that didn't bode well for ...

  2. P2: D30

    Wow, it feels amazing to know that I'm in the final stretch. TOM has messed with my goals but I've been able to keep it realistic. I'll be happy to lose 1.7lbs so I hit the 20lbs gone mark. I would have really loved to make it to 25+lbs released but I'm happy to have lost weight in general. I was talking to my husband today and he was noticing changes. I'm glad he was able to notice and compliment me on them even though he was a little disappointed that my tush is decreasing (to which I suggested ...

    Its for those people, though,that I want to post a caveat:
    The original protocol is a proven thing. Changing it is taking a gamble and anyone new to HCG that is reading this should be aware of that. Your menu is way off the original HCG protocol. There is a link in the top menu (Original Manuscript) where you'll find Dr. Simeons list of allowed

  4. Cheater cheater

    This weekend I chaperoned a weekend retreat for middle school kids at a local church camp. It was so much fun! I did great (mostly) on food. I had made a giant batch of broccoli and chicken stir fry - p2 appropriate, for my boyfriend and I to eat. The kids were supportive of us eating on-protocol. We should have been fine....Apple for breakfast, stir fry for lunch, no snacking, gave away all of our sweets....

    buuuut when we opened our cooler for dinner on Saturday night, we found ...

  5. Week 1 check in-Siesta Beach and HCG

    Well it's been a week and I lost what I gained while loading. If I was to do it over again I DO NOT think one needs to load on this plan.
    This is not a perfect week to look at and I don't see the losses being very good compared to POP. Here is the kicker though. This weekend I was out of town for my son's hockey tournament with games very early in the mornings going late at night and driving 3 hours a day for 3 days (Fri, Sat and Sun). My eating plan was not very good. I must say that ...

  6. GiGy 2015 R1P2VLCD1

    Today is the day! While I did not weigh myself prior to loading, I did put today's weight in my MFP. I hadn't been on the scale in a couple of weeks. Looks like I am up about 3.6 pounds or so. That's the bad news. The good news is that I am still about 7 pounds below my highest weight EVER.

    DH is really disgusted with himself this morning. He hasn't been on the scale in........ weeks. Maybe a month? And he's at his highest weight ever in his life. I told him that won't be ...

    Mixing of the dry HCG was a breeze thanks to all the helpful posts from this forum, and a few YouTube videos. Like anything new, it was a bit daunting at first.

    So, my first shot was Friday January 23, 2015. I knew I had a dinner engagement that was the perfect night to load. Saturday was shot number two and load day number two. I worked out at the gym as usual, and then opted for a high fat meal at a local Mexican restaurant,

  8. P3 Week 2 Measurements, Food Log, and Notes

    Week Two of P3 checking in! It has been so simple honestly. I stressed so badly about starting P3, but it has been my favorite phase by far. I could see letting P3 become my P4 quite easily.

    I did really crave something sweet a few nights ago and had a totally failed foodie experiment. I whipped some heavy whipping cream up, added some clear and chocolate stevia, added some black and blue berries. It wasn't thick and creamy like ice cream after being blended together. Maybe more ...

  9. TOM, success, church retreat

    Oops, forgot to log!!
    TOM just started 2 days early, oops! I'm still settling coming off of depo and starting a new job, but it's alwasy within 2 days of the rigth time. I seem to remember HCG messing with my period last time, but this time there's no gain, there's no cramps...just daily life!
    I don't know how to handle TOM on hcg...do you increase veggies or anything to compensate for blood loss?

    Weigh-in today was a good moment for me -- my goal for this round is only ...

  10. P2: D27

    TOM is nearing it's end and it wasn't as bad as it normally is. I wonder if the hormone has anything to do with decreasing cramps. Normally I'm curled up feeling horrid on the couch, taking pain meds, hardly eating, and waiting for it to end. I was functional this time, just needed one pill on the first day, then everything was smooth sailing from there.

    I did wake up this morning to a -1.1lb drop and -2 inches. I can't wait to see what other losses I can get before this round end. ...
