There is always that worry in the first few days if your hcg is 'good' or not - no hunger, so we have a good batch!
Gained 7.6 loading, lost 4.4 yesterday and hope to have the rest of the 'loaded' lbs gone in the next couple of days so I can start chipping away at the REAL reason I'm in P2 = 163.4.
Excited about P2, because it's a little work-out vacation. I've bucked the system and tried in rounds past to hit the gym but it slows my losses and increases my appetite
I couldn’t WAIT to get out of bed this morning. VLCD1 is FINALLY here!
After loading for two days, I felt very uncomfortable last night. My stomach was bloated, my fingers felt like sausages (too much sodium) and my body just felt plain ol polluted.
I gained 5.8lbs while pre-loading last weekend and loading Monday and Tuesday. That makes me 5.8lbs above Round 2 LIW. Hoping to have these loading pounds gone by Sunday so that I can start working on the real fat next
Round 3 / Loading Day #2
I PRE-loaded on a camping/kayaking/hiking trip last weekend + Loading Day #1 = 6lbs gain..oh my. I still have one day (today) left of loading to go. Normally, I only gain 5lbs while loading, so this is pretty crazy. Pre-loading is not part of protocol, but it was fun none-the-less!
But no need to worry, I am confident that these new lbs will come off in the first 4-5vlcds. So AWESOME knowing that I can lose weight! My whole life, the idea
Loved the two months of P4 and kept to my LIW -45lbs, swinging within 4lbs of that #, but always returning back to -45. It helped that I stayed clear of starches and sugars. I COULD have enjoyed them, but I found that I could eat MORE and NOT gain, when I avoided them. Weighing every day was also very important.
So glad to be back ‘home’ here at the hcg diet info site. Such a great way for us to share our experiences and support one another! I've already
