    First of all, let me say how very sorry I am that you are suffering so much.

    With that said, a lot leads up to full blown autoimmune disorders. The body is in a compromised state long before the perfect storm. People abuse their bodies with improper eating, lack of good quality supplements and a high toxic load. The body becomes more and more vulnerable as time goes by because the immune system is damaged until something triggers the "storm". My daughter's trigger was childbirth and yours happened to be HCG. ANYTHING stress related is a trigger. Just like childbirth didn't CAUSE my daughter's autoimmune disease, HCG didn't cause yours. BUT it was the "straw that broke the camel's back".

    Conventional medicine, needed during 911 times, isn't always up on the latest and has a tendency to treat symptoms, not the root cause. Please look into Sarah Ballantyne, PhD book The Paleo Approach - Reverse Autoimmune Disease and Heal Your Body. Dr Datis Kharrazian also has a great book called Why Isn't My Brain Working, a functional medicine approach for treating the body. Check out Elana's story of MS at elanaspantry.com. It may be possible for you to take back your body, heal it and minimize pharmaceutical products.

    My daughter's journal has been challenging but we have had the best success toward healing from following the Paleo lifestyle, adding in good quality supplements and reducing her toxic load. Has it been easy?? NO and at times very frustrating BUT her body didn't get ill over night so we have to be patient with the healing process.

    I wish you all the best and God bless you on your healing journey

    Whoot Whoot, normal BMI knocking on your door! That sounds awesome!

    Well, that was a little wishful thinking (and not enough coffee) on my part---I have 4.3 pounds to go to normal BMI, not 3.3. Sigh.

    I went through the same as Bava, which lead me to cheat. Stick with it! Although you've done this before, so you know that

    Yea love, the quick start and big numbers in the beginning makes one think the slow down is because we are failing. It's not the case but I found it upsetting and wondered what was wrong with me. I'm over it now and you sound experienced and ready for battle. Good luck! You are doing super.

    My "official" start weight at the beginning of R1 was 196.4, and my LIW for R1 was 177.6--so 19 lb. lost. I am NOT the biggest loser---but since it stayed off, I'll take it!
