  1. Weekend away from home - Scary!!

    I got invited to go out of town for the weekend with some friends, my first reaction was to cringe inside because I was just scared out of my mind, just as I am doing well, this is going to be crazy. It seems to me that I have never been to/ invited to so many parties and events before starting HCG. When I think of parties and other events, the first thing I see is the food tempting me and the gains following.

    I am going to be "that girl" and I am not going to care about ...

    also when you say your thyroid numbers "look fine" does that mean FT3 was at 3/4 or above in the range and FT4 was about halfway through the range? Normal is a setting on your dishwasher, for thyroid you want optimal test results or things can happen....like

  3. Fat Fast Summary

    I've got a certification test this morning at work, but wanted to post that my weight this AM was 166.8 - only 0.2 lbs over LIW! I'll update what my observations were later!



    Just got back from a celebratory lunch for aceing both tests! Here are my main observations from the Fat Fast:

    - Coconut mousse had me turning a ketone stick nearly BLACK instantly in about an hour. I have never had that high of a result and have the stick change so quickly. I monitor ...

  4. TOM FAKE OUT! VLCD19 same 145.3 today

    Well, I thought TOM showed up yesterday AM, but then it has pulled a vanishing act on me. Is it waiting for me to be ready to stop the drops before it will come back. WTF! I do not want to extend this round past day 23 which will be Sunday, but I guess it is what it is. I definetly have cramps. We will see what happens tonight and tomorrow. I will not lose hope. I just don't want another 10 day period. I am still smiling though, through the cramps and bloating.

People who use a lot of rounds of HCG will have long leptin Rx reset times.......years. It really disrupts the hypothalamus but it works for weight

  8. Inspired to Blog!

    So I'm just starting on my 5th day of the VLCD, and so after 4 days of P2 dieting this morning I weighed in at 125.6# (down from my post-loading starting weight of 130.0#) which is the lowest I've weighed for well over a year and I am TOTALLY stoked about it. I can't quite believe it if I'm honest. Every single day that I weigh in, I tell myself not to expect anything. Actually, that's not quite right. Everyday I tell myself to expect no loss/a gain because I genuinely am a little scared to believe ...

  10. Chasing Change For You.......

    My name is Jack Kruse and I am a neurosurgeon. I would like to share with you some ideas I have. Humans evolved the attributes of a large brain and the ability to speak, in order to form intricate social networks that can use many aspects of technology. Our biggest attribute is the ability to think. This allows us to radically change the environment that we are ideally adapted to. It has allowed us to dominate all habitats and create havoc in most of them as well. The real human miracle of our minds ...
