  1. Week 1 down!

    I have been doing fairly well, and then had a major lapse last night- I was super lethargic all day, and really hungry. I ate an extra protein portion, and then- coconut milk ice cream. It was like I was possessed! I don't think it was hunger either, per-se. TOM is coming, and that's my guess.

    I lucked out: still had a loss today, but it was small: 0.4 lbs. Which makes my total loss for week 1- ta daa! 12.6 lbs (including loading weight). I only gained 2 lbs. loading, so that's still ...

  2. Amazing!

    I have done HCG before, and I know this crazy progress will eventually slow somewhat. I am trying to enjoy it while I can!

    Judging by my weigh in this morning, I should get to the 1 lb. a day mark soon. My BF% on the scale is relatively useless, aside from being a good indicator of how hydrated I am and what my bathroom habits are like. But the BF% (after being low for me) has been going up steadily.

    I am still blown away though. Four days VLCD: - 8.5 lbs. Another ...

  3. Two days down!

    I am lucky to be doing this along with a friend this round. she's using homeopathic drops, I am Sub-Q-ing it. After several years of trying to do this the so-called "healthy" way, I have to conclude that this is the only thing that works for me.

    I weighed in Tuesday morning to see 3 lbs. had flown the coop. Another three this morning.

    Since I have done Whole 30's and not had results like this all month, I am flabbergasted. Granted, 2 lbs. of that is loading ...

  4. Surviving Loading

    Oh man.

    I've eaten Paleo for the last 4 years- I seem to be the only oddball who can't drop weight on it, so hcg is kind of a last resort for me. It really worked well the last time around, but I went on vacation and never stabilized. So the goal this time is to do it right!

    I haven't eaten in a way I would classify as overeating since...well, forever. Probably the last time I did this. And woah, I remember listening to people talking (always slim people) about how ...

  5. What day is it?

    Wow. I made it!

    I haven't weighed in yet. I had the best of intentions, but let me tell you, in Thailand, everything is served with rice or rice noodles, or has sugar in it. Unless you're drinking water, every drink is pre-sweetened with a heavy hand.

    The odd thing is, I can look in the mirror, and pretty well think I look about the same. And my clothing is still loose! It actually turned out to be a good thing that I brought loose clothing to Thailand: the heat and ...

  6. Stability

    Amazing as it may seem, I am into P3, and I am loving it!

    Sadly, it seems to be corresponding with the advent of TOM, and it seems that those two things combined aren't the best. There was a chocolate incident. But I am finally hitting my stride agaiin, and holding pretty steady as my body adjusts to more than just a diet of lean protein.

    In the meantime, I am beginning to panic. I leave for Thailand in less than a week, and a lot of my travel staples are so loose on ...

  7. Notes on a photograph

    A woman is standing, surrounded by a crowd of children. She is wearing white shorts with a gray plaid pattern, a gray cardigan, and giant sunglasses, holding an official looking clipboard and three abandoned jackets. The sun pools on her calves, which have serious muscle definition. Her mouth is open, and she's gesturing with confidence while the kids listen.

    I peer at the photo in wonder, because I cannot believe it's a picture of me.

    There was an event at the school ...

  8. Open Letter to the Voice In My Head

    If anyone else talked to me this way, I would let them have it. I've been listening to you my whole life, and 99% of the time, you're such a Debbie Downer. I wish I could turn you off, or feed you some anti-depressants or something. Even when I KNOW you're wrong, you just keep repeating yourself, and upping the volume each time, until it's all I hear. What purpose does this serve?

    I saw a woman a few months ago, striding down the sidewalk on a Friday night in San Francisco. Squirrel ...

  9. D'Oh!!!!!!

    Um, yeah.

    I was up about a pound yesterday: I am sure my body freaked out about the "whoosh" phenomenon that carried me below the 220 threshold. So of course it bugged me, but I tried not to stress about it.

    The thing is, though: I was hungry. I ate an extra serving of protein at lunch, and thought that would take care of it. But I was still hungry on my break from work, and ate an apple. AND a small 100 cal bag of microwave popcorn. (Oops.)

    So ...

  10. Week 3 Check-in!

    So. Weight loss slowed down for me quite a bit this week, mainly due to my crazy stall. It picked up again yesterday, when I saw this on the scale: "219.6"

    I scrubbed at my eyes, got off the scale, got back on. "219.6".

    As of this morning, I lost another .2 lbs, which puts my total for this week at 4.2 lbs lost, along with another 4.5 inches: All from my core, and hips: and .5 off of each thigh. (I counted that as .5 inches total: should it ...
