Ok all, here I go. Today was day 1 of P2. I'm terrified of needles, but was so frustrated an in a time crunch this morning, that I couldn't over think the injection, and just did it. NO big deal, whew. At about 3pm I got SO nauseated, I had to lay down. I ate an apple and it passed. Mainly I've been starving and frustrated today and really need a support group to get through this journey. I'm happy to have found you all. Being a, now, single mom of triplets is really hard but I have to get control back again with my weight. I just don't feel confident, and as a single young 20-something I need confidence.
I actually don't know my weight (I'm 5'5"), I'll find out at my two week follow up. I told the nurse I'd die on the floor is she told me the number, she thought I was serious, ooops... So, I don't know (yet) but I'd guess around 158-160ish, and I want to get back down to 130-135, which I did about two years ago on another VLCD, but not HCG, and on that my lowest number was 128. I know I can do it, sticking with it is the problem. I also have Hashimoto's Thyroiditus, an additional challenge.
Also I drank 3.5 Liters of water, and also did a detox soak with bentonite clay and epson salt.
I'd love to compare notes with those who have accomplished their HCG goals, those on the journey and those just starting.
Looking forward to getting to know you all.
