Fae's Journey to reach 175lbs by the end of 2011

Just my daily thoughts, experiences and such for this third round through HCG.

I lost an incredibley wonderful 52 pounds last summer, only to gain back 30 pounds in five months!! I did NOT do P3 as I should have. I was so burnt out and ravenous. I had been going through a clinic who had me doing IM 250iu. I didn't realize how high they were until 11 days of ups and downs I finally gave up. I didn't have it in me to get onto P3. Not only that, but I kinda stabilized ~300-305. Most of the weight I gained back in the holidays. It was like the threshold was spent and on came the poundage.

Now I am back, doing Pregnyl powdered/reconstituted SQ 125iu. So far that dose is doing just fine for me. I think if it continues that way that I will get more in the future.
If I reach 175# by end of December I will try to change my goal to be 155# if I can make it there. Apparently thats where I should be middle of the appropriate BMI. But my goodness that seems like I would be anorexic looking at that weight!

  1. R3P2VLCD17... STALL BROKE finally TMI warning

    by , January 28th, 2011 at 12:24 PM (Fae's Journey to reach 175lbs by the end of 2011)
    So I dropped a bit one day and then yesterday afternoon weighed .6 pounds MORE again!!! I felt constipated and frustrated, so I got out an enema.... well I weighed 2.2 pounds LESS after it was all said and done... holy crap (never mind the pun!). What a relief though. I hope to high heavens I don't gain again! I ate an orange, my beef ginger garlic over boiled cabbage, tilapia over asparagus and drank 4 liters of water and 32 ounces of tea.

    I am going out to a bar tonight to ...
  2. R3P2VLCD15: hanging on to the stall still

    So I went up to 307 and down to 306.6 today. I think I have many factors contributing. 1) new dog, daily walks totaling 1-3 miles a day for me, previously I was sedentary for the most part. 2) This is a set point for me, having stayed between 300-305 for five months before packing on the last 15 pounds over the holidays. 3) Fast fat loss the first week, leaving my body rebounding and retaining water while the fat cells stabilize.

    I never did an apple day, I just can't quite stomach ...

    I GAINED 1.2 pounds today??? UGH. I did not cheat, but I teased my girlfriends from work. One of which will be joining this shortly. I went to breakfast with them before going home. I brought in my bag of apple slices, my stevia and ordered hot herbal tea. I drank two cups, and a portion of the ice water while they stuffed. One was loading for R1P2. I have not cheated this whole round except to eat two more melba toasts a few days ago. HOWEVER... my suspicions are that I only got 3 hours ...

    Well I woke up to a 2 pound loss today!! I even ate my melba right before bed because I was having cravings, and felt like I needed something more. I thought for sure that would bounce me up. I m still wanting more than I am eating, but I have not caved in yet!

    I even walked to the mailbox and back with my dog (1/4 mile only) after work this morning. I have been able to maintain my drinking enough water thankfully. When I need a treat I get a nice tea and sweeten it a bit. ...

    Well I keep craving fats/dairy/carbs. Its a mild craving, but sometimes its so hard to deal with. I have had these ups and downs of losing, but so far all losses. I will lose 3 pounds then have only a .4 or .6 six loss then ones and twos again.

    I am going back to work tonight, so Im in a weird day. I woke up to a 0.4 loss but I tend to keep my night schedule on off days, because that way I weigh when I wake up for work. So I got up with the kids today, but drank almost a liter ...

    OH Happy dance for me! I lost 2.6 pounds! That puts me at an average of 2 pounds a day this week! Five weeks to go baby! That and Da' Bears won!! I am a GB Packer fan, and I wanted to see us brawl it out with our long time rival, only other time we met in NFC championship was in 1941! They won that time, time to take that back and wave from the Super Bowl Baby!

    I slept alot today, didn't wake up till almost 8pm. I think I went to bed around 11 though. Well I am doing great. ...

    I am down 0.6 lbs today. My weight loss is slowwwinnggg. Not like being smaller is a bad thing, Its certainly a good thing. I have not cheated!! Oh wait, not since I had two and a half cashews without thinking the other day. I am drinking all the water required every day so far including load days.

    I am not fighting hunger. I am fighting TOM. Not my friend. I have been waiting for five months to get a hysterectomy or a uterine ablation, but every time they call I am bleeding. ...
  8. R3P2VLCD4 and the arrival of TOM

    by , January 14th, 2011 at 11:33 PM (Fae's Journey to reach 175lbs by the end of 2011)
    I started TOM today. I woke to a 1.4 pound loss though!! Despite the EVIL cashews...

    I still feel gloriously not hungry. I am surprised because I am only taking 125iu. You would think at my weight it would be a lot more. But Hey I ll take that because that means that my bottle of Pregnyl will last me 40 days!!! That means I have two full rounds without having to buy more yet. So lets hope it stays this way and I don't need to adjust anything. I did experience issues and stalls ...

    I am down 3 pounds today!!

    What a wonderous thing! So I feel good, and my last shot didn't burn so badly anymore. I must have chosen a prime non nerve rich spot. I might circle it with permanent marker... haha just kidding.

    So work has been horrendous and I am looking forward to the days off. I hope everyone else is doing well. I had a hard time drinking all my water yesterday but I did get only 16 oz shy of my full load of water.

    So while I was ...

    I am having to force myself to eat all my food. Its ridiculous. I am thinking that the 125iu SQ on Pregnyl is doing its job thusfar. I feel great, but am achy, kinda feel muscle fatigue a bit. I am having a harder time drinking enough today but thats because I was so freaking busy and they took our PCT for a 1:1. God what a frustration, I had two patients on gown/gloving precautions, one receiving blood transfusions, and another who jumps out of bed all the time and is blind and imbalanced from ...
