So I'm starting My journey as soon as all my supplies get in :
HCG: shipped 8/13/12 est 1-3days to arrive 5000 iu
Bacteriostatic water: shipped 8/13/12 est 5-7days to arrive
mixing vial: shipped 8/13/12 5-7 days to arrive
i have syringes and needles already
I currently weight 234lbs size 18-20 xl/xxl tops
hoping to get to size 14/16 xl by Halloween (size matters to me more than weight- but I know myself I'll be on that scale 1x day)
Hoping to get to size 10/12 large top- by new Years
If I had to pick a number I would hope to weigh 175 By New Years (I'm 5' 7"- so this is about 20 lbs above my target weight but If I start on the 21st of August this will be about 4months to lose around 60lbs - a little lofty but hopefully somewhere close.
1. I know I start taking the injections with the loading days so 2 loading days * fatty foods followed by 40 days of VLCD days so is it 39 injections total (2 for loading days then 37 for VLCD days then 3 days no injections just VLCD)?
2. Im a little confused about finishing the VLCD all 40- then moving to stabilization - How long is the minimum to stay there before starting loading/ injections again? I read six weeks in the protocol but have read different timelines here from posters ( have been lurking for over 3 weeks before biting the bullet and ordering today)
3. a little bio from me: Thats a Picture of me at 234 in my avatar
I'm 25y/o female no kids I've been a labor and delivery nurse for 2 years and right now I'm working nights (just 1 more month then on to day shift middle of Sept.) Working nights and following this protocol is not something I have read a lot about * feed back appreciated.
I'm super excited to start- want this weight gone, want to start living a 25 y/o life, out on the town, flirting, getting hit on not always obsessed about my weight and letting it and my feelings about it stop me from living. Want to shop in regular stores ( have not done that since I was 12 - always been in bigger more boring less revealing clothes. I want to buy a little black dress and gasp! it actually be little.
anyway any feed back greatly appreciated
