1st Time HCG for me!

  1. WTH??? Gout??? I thought only old people got the gout!

    Well now that I eat more red meat and protein gout has invaded my hands! OMG it's not nice. Apparently another side affect from a low carb diet. Since doing hcg and loosing 30 pounds I do not eat a lot of carbs and have definitely increased the amount of protein I used to eat.

    Note to others please keep your water intake up and continue to eat lots of fresh greens and fresh fruits to avoid this happening to you. Sour cherry juice is helping and I've tripled my water intake again ...

  3. P4 transition & NYC trip

    photo-2.jpgOnto to P4 and maintaining at 169 which is technically 3# over LDW but I'm sticking with it.. P4 is great! Although the scales are not reducing my clothes are looser and tone is tighter. Reduced appearance of cellulite in legs and behind. I still have not measured after completing R2VLCD. Just so darned busy. It's on my punch list.

    Any how this past weekend went to visit daughter and we spent 3 days in NYC. What a hoot, Zarkana Circ du So lei at ...

  4. P3 quick update....holding at 3# over LDW

    P3 was more difficult this time for me. I was soooo hungry after LDW. I've done about 4 steak days and only lost 1.5 pounds each time only to shoot back up to 3# over LDW so I'm going to stick with that as my final weight. As much as I love steak I'm just to darned hunger to go all day without food this time. Not sure what's the difference.

    Other than I've been working outside like a farm hand EVERYday even in rain if it's not pouring. We virtually could not do any spring work ...

  5. P3 Day 3 Okay time to get my head in the P3 game....steak day.

    Steak day....I'm 4# over LDW but it's really no surprise with all the food I've been eating. Not sure why I've been so hungry at the end of R2P2 this time. Or maybe it's just my mind wanting to go back to P4 and enjoy life without restrictions. But whatever it is it's time to get back in the game.

    Sipping my coffee this morning and filled the water bottle....holiday is over! I'll get at least 2-3 pounds off with steak day. They worked like a charm on R1 but I only had to do 2 ...

I made the pina colada with 1 can coconut milk, fresh pineapple, malibu rum with a splash of malibu mixer (had sugar) lots of ice and buzz in the blender. Oooh la la very good.

  7. R2VLCD#17 1st day no HCG

    Up 1/2 pound this AM but I had extra protein yesterday....the hungries were bad again. Maybe my HCG got weaker, not sure why I was so hungry. Or all of a sudden my dose is to high?? Regardless I had another whey shake and double protein for dinner last night. Been really craving fats like butter and cream. I'm having cream in coffee again. Ah life is good. I know it's technically to early but I guess this is what called "Goin Rouge"....lol

    Not sure if 3 days will ...

  8. LDW 165 for a total of 16# loss including load weight on R2

    It's official today is my last dose day and my LDW will be 165 for a YTD total loss of 33.5 since Turkey Day. I can dig it. 3 more days of low calorie diet. Yesterday I was so starving that I made a whey shake 10AM and had 4 oz. steak for lunch and again for dinner. Still ended up with a 1/2 pound loss. The hunger was unbelievable...not sure why???? The added protein helped me through without going totally off the reservation. Equalled all total an extra protein portion.

    Today ...

  9. R2 VLCD#20 Down 1.5 overnight. Must be I scared the fat off w/ hissy fit. lol

    Feeling better today seeing a loss on the scales this morning. Sorry for yesterday's rant, diet mentality took over. I just want this to be over with. Dieting gets so old but then again so do muffin tops, baggy sweaters and flying squirrel arms. Like someone's tag line on here says, "Dieting is hard but being fat is harder".

    I certainly didn't blow up to 200 pounds overnight so it only stands to reason it won't melt off overnight either. But it sure was more fun ...

  10. R2 VLCD#19 up another 1/2 pound...really??? This really bites the big one!

    Okay so now I'm getting pissed. Absolutely no losses since last Friday and now I've gained another 1/2 pound. So much for refined coconut oil being P2 friendly for skin...

    Only got 2 days left to loose anything now I'm at 13 pounds and only 9 if you don't count the load weight. Absolutely not once have I cheated since Friday. And only twice this entire time have I had more than the alloted "strawberries". Come on really 1 pound gain from sunburn and coconut oil on skin???? ...
