So I went on vacation and I gained 5 pounds. I am on phase3day11. Is it too late for me to lose those 5 pounds? I am now 10 pounds away from my goal weight and I am super bummed. Can I do a bunch of correction days back to back? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Well, I'm back down within my 2-pound range (actually, I'm .2 pounds below it) after my bad food weekend. I didn't do a steak day (don't like steak, and the thought of a meat-heavy meal right before bedtime isn't that appealing) but what I did do was eat my usual breakfast (Uncle Sam's Flakes w/ Flaxseeds and blueberries, plus coffee), have a huge protein shake for lunch (with a very filling 48g protein), and ate a light dinner consisting of a huge serving of grapefruit, lots of water, and some
It's been a while since my last blog! Summer life is picking up (and so are the temperatures, ugh) and DH and I have been busier than usual. I've had the opportunity to reach out to some of my church friends about the HCG Protocol and direct them to this site--I'm very excited and I hope they will join the rest of us losers-who-are-really-winners.
P3 has been going well for me; I have stayed within the 2-pound limit, though I'm still figuring out what foods I'm sensitive to (and

Yesterday evening I made a cauliflower crust pizza... and it was so good I ate half of it. Probably explains why the scale was a bit higher this morning than I'd like; I've got to learn how to use more self control. All the healthy eating in the world won't help you if you eat double portions of everything, and that's my biggest issue with my dining habits. If I can get that licked, I'll be much better off.
Also this morning, I officially am over my constipation if you know what
Tomorrow I officially begin Phase 3! I'm excited, especially since my weight has been holding so well. I've been staying at 156.something for the past 3 days of no drops/VLCD. I pray that P3 will go as smoothly! ROUND 1

Hi AbbyGJ -- When do you get to P3? Join me over here! lol its sooo much fun! and I am glad to be over P2.
it doesn't help that my TOM was around a corner therefore there was not a lot of wiggle room for me for the past 3 days. Will post my menu tomorrow. Too tired! ROUND 1
2/1/13 LOAD DAY 1 186.2 lbs
2/2/13 LOAD DAY 2 187.8 lbs
3/12/13 VLCD DAY 40 163.2 lbs *LAST INJECTION DAY
4/24/13 P4 DAY 40 163.8 lbs (0.6 lb above LIW)
Technically I'm still in the VLCD phase, but I'm not taking the drops and I seem to be doing well; I'm down 0.2 from my LDW, and my poor bowels are finally beginning to get back on track as far as regularity goes (like I'm sure you all were just dying to know, but I think we're all guilty of the TMI factor around here, right?)
Yesterday I received my order from GNC: chocolate protein powder with only 5 ingredients and sweetened with stevia. I had some last night and this morning,
I need to preface this post with the fact that I never had bowel movement issues before I started this diet. I pooped twice daily like clockwork. Okay, so I didn't poop the whole 3.5 months I was doing HCG. I would do an enema once a week where 2 or 3 grape sized nuggets covered in mucus would come out and that was it. I thought maybe my body was using the 500 calories for energy, although I can say I know better as I've done fresh veggie fasts and would still eliminate every day, but on HCG
I have a question... My last injection day was the 8th. I began raising my calories on the 12th. Say... I was 155lbs my last injection day but then after my 3 VLCD days on no HCG I got down to 152 & stayed in the 152's from Sunday the 12th - up to when I weighed this morning & now up to 155.5 (yesterday morning I was still in the 152's). Should I do a steak day today or should I just be going by my last injection weight???
Today is Day 30 for me of Round 1. I am down a total of 31.1lbs as of this morning (Yay Me)!
I began this journey on March 26th. The weekend of my Menstrual I began skipping 1 day a week. I have skipped only 2 Saturdays so far, & I have 2 more to skip. So that will have me on this diet for a total of 44 days (no injecting those 4 days but remained on diet).
I have not worked out & I have NOT cheated even slightly, THANK GOD & it has paid off so far
I still have
