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 worked hard yesterday to get a proper amount of food into me. I was able to get almost 1200 cals in by 5 pm. I went out for a happy hour / dinner at a new-ish restaurant with a woman’s group. I looked at the menu before I left and had my food and bev both picked out.

    For a drink, I had a Skinny Paloma. That’s a lie. I had two. A real one uses grapefruit juice but there are several skinny mixes available that are 1 to 5 carbs/ sugars.

I usually do very well with steak days, meaning a 1.2 lb loss but I hate not eating till evening as I am a breakfast girl... so I needed a correction day that worked better so I got the "opportunity" to do one on Friday. LOL! My struggle was with how MUCH food do I eat since I am in P3 and trying to get calories in yet stick to high protein so I don't kill myself and STARVE all day \o/
