lessofkate - I've been to Redmond, OR. Nice city. I like your church's theme. The bad weekend flowed it's way right into a super bad 11 hour Monday at work. Stuff happens. With God's help, I'll make it through these messes to the other side. It's so frustrating to always do your very best and end up making mistakes and being accused of things you tried so hard not to do! I don't even know what I did wrong exactly, but it's certainly clear I did something wrong! I beat myself up mercilessly when I feel I've made an error in whatever way. I'm sure God's trying to teach me something here... be more careful? Don't expect others to recognize your efforts? lol... who knows. OMGosh!! .5 more to go to 50 lbs lost! That's SO AWESOME Kate! Whoo hooo! Yay you!
I'm fitting into clothes much smaller than I have in 14 years, but I saw a photo of myself yesterday and was totally grossed out by the fat around my middle. eeeeeeew! And my braces make me look like a total DORK. After everything else I'd been through over the weekend and at work, I just lost it. I went into my bedroom and cried myself to sleep. Figures VANITY of all things would be the straw that broke the camels back. I need therapy.
dsha - Happy Thanksgiving! Plenty of people stay on hcg for extremely long rounds. I wouldn't worry about it as long as your body isn't freaking out. Believe me, your body knows when it's time to stop and it will tell you. I think I'm on like day 69 of my round now. I lasted 54 days last round.
slim - the hcg does lose potency over time, that's why it's best to go with the 2000iu ... you mix new batches more often. You can check the potency of your current mix on a pregnancy test to see if it's still viable. I'm not sure how long it lasts.. but 3 weeks doesn't seem very long... my guess is it's still good, unless it hasn't been refrigerated.
