Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey

A Newbie's dance with Hcg

  1. None So Blind as Those Who Will Not See

    Weigh-in: 123.4

    Ah ha! I should have known: crabby, bloated, voracious appetite, varicose veins throbbing...

    Yes, it's TOM.

    Well, that explains why I'm having trouble staying on protocol...
    I'm disappointed it took me almost 9 days to lose almost 6 lbs (post-load weight 129; present weight 123.4). But what did I expect with all the cheating?

    uggh...

  2. Protean Plan?

    Weigh -in: 123.8

    How flexible should one be within this plan? I read with admiration the posts of those who go "rogue" and wonder how their losses are going. I know that calorie consumption and weight loss are unique to each individual; so how much of what others prescribe is helpful? Surely there are common denominators between all of us, or we wouldn't be here

    Eschewing carbs has always been impossible for me. Apparently, adding too many ...

  3. The Balancing Act

    Weigh-in: 123.5

    My regime wtih Hcg is in contrast to the adage "Less is more". For me, more is more. More than 500 calories, that is.

    The biggest mistake I made the first time I tried this diet was to use homeopathic Hhcg. Worthless stuff. Period. The second mistake I made was to stick to 500 calories and ignore my body's pleas for more food. Not only was that strategy ineffective and torturous, but it was completely wrong for me. Initially, ...
  4. Clandestine Calorie Counting

    Weigh-in 124.5

    Yesterday there was no escaping having to take my drops near my husband. I was in a rush, he was reading the paper, so I breezed into the refrigerator, filled the syringe and dispensed sublingually, trying to appear like that was the most natural thing to do en route to religious services. He didn't question it -- the kids have been talking about my being on a diet, so he probably just figured it's someting I don't want to discuss.

  5. The Prodigal Dieter

    Oh no... I knew from the first moment I laid eyes on the snacks it was going to be a bad calorie day.

    After the funeral, I went to the reception which had passed nibbles and desserts. After which my husband said he'd take us all out for Italian food -- isn't that great?! (Insert scream). All I wanted to do was try to mitigate the damage done at the reception and have a salad at home. But after co-mourning a lovely man, who lived life ...
  6. As apples of gold and silver carvings

    I'm starting to hate apples. They're not in season here in Northern CA, so the ones you find from Washington are substandard. They're boring and they're boring again and boring some more. One thing that frustrates me about this diet is the repetition. It is very difficult to eat out, too, as I discovered yesterday. As we were in the middle of some errands, hunger hit my brood and me like a truck; sudden and fierce. I chose the least of the culinary ...

    Weigh-in: 124.7

    Yikes! I really thought a little cheating might not affect this diet so much. I mean, I've *got* to be burning an extra 300 calories a day from exercise! What's a boiled egg? Or a handful of pita chips? Or Japanese dressing? Or a half a muffin? Well, all those things are, apparently, .2 of a lb. Note to self: stick to protocol...

    Interestingly, I was thinking about motivation today. Why do people lose weight and why do they keep ...
  8. The road not taken

    weigh-in: 124.5

    This morning I went for a 2 mile run. This time, I used a different route, one that I had used before, but that was not my part of my normal regime. I thought about a lot of things during that journey -- how much harder it is to exercise while dieting, how my aging body is responding slower to fitness efforts, how my footstrikes made a rhythm, how people should really pick up after their dogs, and, interestingly, how following through on a diet plan *is* ...

  9. It was the best of times and the worst of times

    Weigh-in: 125.6

    Why does it seem like weight loss doesn't exist in a bubble? When one is busy and stressed, when disappointment or tragedy strikes, or when things are just crappy, being on a regimen is somehow... comforting? The confinement of food parameters seem to take away the intellectual need for menu preparation -- what a relief!

    In case you (if anybody reads this) don't know, I'm a homeschooling mother of 3, and hitherto a businesswoman in ...

    I guess yesterday was a fluke... Or constipation...but I'm back to almost starting weight. Guess I didn't really gain much at all.

    Had to have a hard-boiled egg (no yolk) this AM for breakfast. How does anyone only drink tea/coffee? With 3 kids, housing construction, and gearing up for the homeschool year, I cannot be grouchy and distracted!!!
    Plus, this is all a secret, so if I start fainting, my family might suspect something... ...
