    Anyone lose less than 20 pounds in first round?

    I'm on VLCD 22, and a little discouraged that I've barely lost 12 pounds!! I only have about 35 total pounds to lose.... and I have NO problem losing weight with calorie restriction and exercise I'm just lazy LOL and was hoping to "fix" my set weight with this program. I've had one cheat day.... Which I cheated with sugar and extra protein, not bread or anything heavy/sticky... I had a 10 day stall which made me SO frustrated and was only broken by cocoa crack.
    What I'm wondering is.... How many of you lost under 20 pounds? Is this common? Not gonna lie, I will be EXTREMELY disappointed and pessimistic for hcg if I don't lose even 20 after 7 weeks. I couldve lost that much doing diet and exercise and still getting to taste what I like!
    Of you that didn't at least lose 20.... How was stabilizing and did you do a 2nd round.... Results?

    I was in P2 for 6 weeks and lost 23lbs. You body will do what it will do. Have you checked your measurements to see how many inches you have lost?

    You have lost 12lbs in 22 days, which is 1/2 pound per day. I would call that great, and that is the norm for most women. I lost at almost the same rate as you.

    Hi,

    I lost 15 lbs in my round. See my stats down below...

    Would I have liked to lose more? Yes. On the other hand, after only three weeks I lost 13" from my body. Won't measure again until after three weeks of P3. I am hoping for more reshaping. I have lost from areas on my body that I consider to be "abnormal" fat (lower stomach and those dreaded hip pads!). That where menopause was settling in on me...

    My clothes fit much better and I am wearing items of clothing in smaller sizes. For the rest of the summer I am going to focus on stabilizing. All the wonderful fresh veggies and fruit that are in season. My coworkers have been generous with
    fresh tomatoes and cucumbers lately...the flavor is heavenly. So much better than store bought!

    Btw, this protocol is what made my weight loss possible. Wasn't able to lose it otherwise.

    Dawn
    R1 Weight Loss 15.0
    R2 Weight Loss 7.5
    Total Weight Loss 22.5 (29.1 lbs if I count loading weight)

    R1 Inch Loss 17.25
    R2 Inch Loss 12.50
    Total Inch Loss 29.75

    Slow and steady wins the race...

    thanks you all! I guess I should re-evaluate my EXPECTATIONS of what this diet should've been for me and just go with the flow and appreciate what I HAVE lost
    Today is injection day 26, VLCD 24... and I'm still barely at 12 pounds lost (technically 11.8)... so I'm continuing on to the full 40 day keeping my fingers crossed that my body finally just surrenders LOL and maybe I can pull out 20 pounds.
    sigh. It is what it is.

    I lost 14.4 pounds and I went 30 days, I also really only had total 25 pounds to lose, so I got most of it off. You have a GREAT LOSS for that many days. 1/2 pound a day is excellent and the norm.. so try not to get discouraged. I went from a size 14 jeans to a size 6.. so what does that tell ya?! =)

    Ah ncos don't take this wrong but that is really nice to hear! Lol. I don't feel alone cause that is probably exactly around what I will lose considering I only have 4 days til 30. Did you just decide to stop at 30 cause the loss was so slow? Did you do a full P3? any problems stabilizing?
    With such a low loss I'm scared to jump up to all the cals in P3 cause it seems I could gain 12 back with hardly any effort

    I am averaging about the same as you, as my loss is slow too. I was told at one point that my loses maybe a little slower than others since I don't have a high number to lose (i want to lose 30-35lbs). Looks like you are doing good!! Keep it up! Good luck with P3..

    I lost right around 20 lbs in my first round. I didn't keep the information so I don't have exact numbers, but I averaged just under 1/2 lb a day weight loss. I think I lost 19-21 or something like that on my first round. My goal was to lose 20 lbs each round, but my next two rounds were shorter so I didn't lose quite that much.
