  1. Vlcd 12

    by , April 14th, 2011 at 03:13 PM (Debbie's HCG Rollercoaster Ride)
    Well woke up this morning weighing 193.6 one pound from yesterday. I have a B12 shot at the doc today and a weigh-in. I asked her a few questions about why they deviated from the Pounds and Inches protocol. She bascially said every weight loss center will have their own tweaks. I need to order my own HCG online to supliment because what they gave me is going to lose potenticy (they say that one bottle already mixed will last 6 weeks. ) Im a bit sceptical. I feel good today.

  2. Blog Post Day 15 (VLCD 36)

    Down another .4 today, yippee!

    Only 4 days to go till P3 and I'm thinking that for those last 10lbs to go I would have to lose 2.5lbs per day and I really see THAT happening (not)!

    That's ok though because this is officially the lowest I have weighed for over 12 years! My older sister who lives in another state told me last night that she is worried about me (bless her cotton socks) and that I will be wasting away to nothing. I laughed and said that as long as I can ...

  3. Going to continue on...

    Well, I just came from the clinic and I have mixed feelings. I feel like I've been on P2 forever, but it's only been 23 days. I'm so frustrated because I'll have decent losses and then I'll gain. The nurse said it's because my body is retaining water, yet the detox bath didn't work. The apple day worked, but then I gained two days later...What to do?

    After 23 days (really 18-19 due to TOM) here's where I stand:
    - 14 pounds lost total (3 stalls)
    ...

  4. R1P2 Day 38 (18 more days until P3)

    I love Carol Ensminger's "5 things I love" vlogs on YouTube.

    One of the things she does w/ Cocoa Crack that I am so looking forward to trying:

    Get some candy molds that are circles and deep enough to make a "homemade reeces PB cup". You make your cc, pour just a bit on the bottoms, freeze it until it hardens, then fill the middle (filling) part with either a nut butter, or cream cheese mixed with peppermint Stevia (OMG YUM!). Then pour over the ...
  5. slowing down... still making progress.

    It has been a month of HCG. Total weight loss 25.5. I am really happy with the progress but wondering if I should continue or stabilize as the loss per week has really slowed down. I think I will continue until I get below 200 as that is such a psychological number for me and it would be hard to mentally stabilize at any number above that as I am 13 lbs away. I purchased enough hcg for several rounds so that is not a reason to stop. I know I will want chocolate at Easter.. and wine... I had ...

  6. Headaches again

    Aleve is over the counter. It's stronger than Excedrin. If I take that, drink a coke zero and ice pack with a little rest. It makes a big difference.

  7. PH3 Interruption, Day3

    Down .5lbs....My LIW is 130.5, I am currently at 129lbs. I have been eating around 1200 calories....today maybe less. I'm afraid to eat more and see a gain, but I'm also satisfied at 1200 calories, so its hard to want to push past that and eat more for calorie increase, sake....I'm still not sure how many calories I should be aiming for?

    Off to Portland tomorrow and bringing with me:
    -boiled eggs
    -cocoa crack (I've got it down to a milky/chocolate w/nuts consistency) ...

  8. Don't want to lose this!

    makana- 2000 div by 8 is 250. so you have 250 iu's of hcg in each 1 cc of water. a dose of 175 would be .7. (175 div by 250)
  9. Menstrual-like cramps/ wacky cycle after HCG??

    I'm on day ten, still going strong, I'm on Necon BCP without placebos ( think Seasonale). So I know I'm not due for another two weeks and have never had break-through bleeding while on this BCP. This wasn't an issue until I started my HCG drops. I'm wondering maybe it's a connection?? I've heard of some women having some issues with their cycle when starting the HCG diet. I'm just wondering if this is something that comes with the territory or if it's interacting with my contraceptives--I know it ...

  10. This is my new beginning

    This is it. Day one of my new beginning. I can't be this way anymore, unhealthy and unhappy. My body is nearly half fat! How gross is that?!?! I have two amazing children that need me and a husband that, for some unexplainable reason, loves me and thinks I am beautiful. I want to be around for a long time for them. To enjoy each day I have, in a healthy body that can move and play and live life.
    I know this is not going to be easy, I am ready for the hard work. I have a great support ...
