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.

    Maybe a bite or two if it is something I really want. If I'm really wanting more of that taste, I'll go home and make a version that is sugar-free and with better ingredients. I generally end up enjoying my version more. Most sugary desserts are way to sweet for me now.

    What are your favorite high carb/low fat meals?

I didnít weigh this morning. I had a good workout this morning and have been fasting today to clear my body of all the sugar.

    Dubbs- I usually drink vodka/soda with lemon and a stevia based sweetener or tequila with limes, water and stevia, or like Tracy mentioned,
