  1. My Joints Feel So Much Better, Thank You!

    Today was the first day of school (I'm a teacher). I stood all day long on concrete...but unlike last year, I didn't end the day with joint pain, sore feet or achy knees...and why? I weigh 22 pounds less! Now, I've got a long way to go -- 22 pounds is just a drop in the bucket -- but I am already experiencing good things.

    This diet can be a real pain in the patooty, and I am so ready to eat other things, like other kinds of proteins and vegetables. Which I can do in about 5 ...

  2. Anyone use Elemis Ionithermie while on hcg diet?

    I tried the Elemis Ionithermie body brushing and treatment at a spa while on a cruise and came back home and researched it. I can't say I believe it all but I definitely see the benefits of body brushing. It has been done for centuries. But part of the process involves using a topical serum with seaweed extract. I can't find anywhere if anyone used the Elemis system while on hcg and how that turned out. Have any of you done the Elemis system while on hcg?

  4. HELP! I used/ate a spice with sugar by accident

    Does anyone know what will happen if you eat a spice that has sugar in it? I was making my green beans and grabbed the wrong spice. I didn't notice it until i was done eating. It was garlic salt of all things. I put it in the water that i boiled the green beans.

  5. Yeah!! Ministall over!! VLCD 26

    by , August 18th, 2011 at 05:18 PM (Laura's Getting Her Old Bod Back)
    I'm losing track of my days. I think its VLCD 26. Down 1.2 today after a very clean day yesterday and I finally made chicken that doesn't taste like wood pulp today.

    I had 2 organic chicken breasts and split them. Crushed up 2 grissini's really fine and added parm/romano cheese, basil, oregano. Lightly breaded the chicken with the crumb mixture. Did not need to dip chicken in anything first, just used the juices it came in. Lightly sprayed a corningware baking dish with extra ...

  6. Tom caused a HALT, but apples rev the engine back up.

    Tom had caused a slow down in my weight loss. But I opted to do the Apple day. I ended up releasing 1.6 the next morning. I was too happy to see a change because I was stalled for 3 days straight. Apple day wasn't really all that bad. I only ate about 3 the whole time because I wasn't hungry. I think my mind wanted to see the scale drop so bad that I ignored any hunger and thirst. I didn't drink anything either including water. Apple days do work but we will see tomorrow if that scale moves ...

  7. Just because it's Sugar-Free doesn't mean it's Calorie Free!!

    by , August 18th, 2011 at 04:58 PM (Losing Weight -- Gaining Life!)
    I lost my mind today. Really - I did.

    I got in my car after eating a lovely lunch in the office at work... and I drove to the grocery store... and I bought a bunch of "Sugar Free" CRAP!

    I don't know what is wrong with me. I have been very anti-sugar-free stuff for my whole life. I don't like the artificial sweeteners. Those chemicals can't possibly be healthy. The only exception that I have ever made is for chewing gum... and then on HCG I found out ...
