Dubbles

Haven't done a "blog" yet, and it's 20 days into this protocol. But have decided to do one, as it is almost like a diet journal. I like journaling, and have actually been keeping one off line of my hcg journey. And that is what it is. I find if I just worry about the end of the round, it's much more difficult. Instead I'm trying to use the "everyday" everyday to learn, (mostly from other people's blogs, and the forums) and to experiment with seasonings and menus, trying to carefully stay on protocol.

I'm a grandmother of three. Don't feel my age, even my doctor says I don't look my age, which makes me more determined to lose a few of these excess pounds. I really want to be the best I can be at any age. After all, age is largely just a number. So here I am.

HCG has been a godsend to me. I luv this protocol. Have lost 17.8 lbs since starting. Actually had gained some this summer. It was a long, hot summer and hubby and I had a good time, noshing together. But I'm not ready to just give up on feeling good about myself, and looking good, either. Nothing wrong with that, at any age. I luv watching Dancing with the Stars and the older people are always an inspiration. That Florence Henderson, isn't she a cutie at 76?! What I hope to be at that age.!

Anyway will try and start journaling more here than in my notebook. If someone else reads it and gets encouraged in anyway, that'd be good--if not, I'll be able to look back and reflect on how I felt, during this Round 1.

I have cooked on just about any kind of cooker imaginable and this setup is perfect for me and my lifestyle. I rarely have the time to hang around and tend a fire even though it is an enjoyable way to spend

  3. Update on Back to the PAST--p2 CONTINUED

    Okay, finished the PI, ended at exactly LDW from 2 weeks before. Since my Planned Interruption was 14 days, I did 2 days of loading during which I gained 5.6 lbs. Frankly did not enjoy the load days all that much. I was really surprised that I just couldn't eat like I used to and much of what I thought I was craving, like Pizza, I didn't enjoy at all The first load day, I did include sugar and starches, but found my cravings, quickly satisfied and found the sweetness almost sickening. ...
