HCG Rounds history stats

Rate this Entry
For those obsessed with analyzing how the rounds progress, I'll provide an overview of my 5 completed rounds, all done with HCG injections provided by a doctor. FYI-- I don't count loading losses in the starting weight or end results, only real ones represented by the Net Loss stat. (First week loss does include load weight.) All rounds had the proscribed amount of time (or a bit more) in between them. As you can see, I stabilized most times, but then started to gain between rounds. Weight: 208-141
Height: 5' 5" Normal weight 140. Goal: 130-135.

Interesting factoid: My y total loss for 5 rounds was 97 pounds. Had I not gained between rounds, I could have reached my goal in 4 rounds instead of 5. My actual net loss was 67 for rounds 1-5.

Round 1:
Starting weight: 208
Loading gain: #2
Weekly losses: -8 -5 - 3 - 4 -2 -2 -1
LIW: 184.5

P3: no correction days until wk4, ended up at about LIW

Round 2:
Starting weight: 189
Loading gain: #4
Weekly losses: -8 -4 -2 -2.5 -2.5 -2 -1
LIW: 170

Weekly losses: -6.5 -2.5 -4.5 -2 -2 1.5 -1
LIW: 150

P3: 7 correction days in first 3wks, ended up at #5 over LIW and correction days no longer working. Been fighting the creeping gain ever since.

Here's to success in Round 6 and finally figuring it all out.

    Leez this is awesome how you kept up with each and every detail. I love your loss progression! So happy you reached your goal of 133! That's great!

    I hope this record inspires people that they can reach their goal if they just keep at it. I didn't learn how to do maintenance in a way that worked for me until AFTER my 6th round. But I did finally learn. It may take you longer than some others to achieve success, but my experience is proof you can do it if you don't give up. When I started HCG, I was at the point when nothing worked for me anymore. I consider this protocol my miracle.

    ROUND 8 (34 doses, 37 day round)

    Updating this topic to make a report on a 30 day round I just completed with Diet Doc. Over the past 2+years, I've been trying various maintenance strategies, and have held the line fairly well, but experienced a slow creep that nearly erased all the progress of my final round. Thankfully for my psyche, I never went over the 150 mark, which would have freaked me out totally, but came too close for comfort. So I gave up trying to lose on my own and decided to use the miracle of HCG once more. Menopause has not been kind. I had gained 7 inches on my waist, making it the same measurement as when I weighed 170 pounds before. Thankfully, 6 of those seven inches came off in the round. Maybe I'll lose the last one in the P3 reshaping. We shall see how that goes.

    At the end of this short round, I'm at my goal weight again. I lost nearly 14 pounds, which is really good for me. I expected to have to do a long round to get back to goal, but was able to end early, for which I am supremely thankful. I'm in P3 now and will do my best to keep my losses going forward.

    Round stats this time (I always do a skip day a week whether round is short or long):
    ROUND 8: Short round - 30 days [June-July 2017: 2+ years since R#7]
    Starting weight: 149.6
    Loading gain: -1#
    Weekly losses: -6.6 -2.6 -2.0 -1.6 -.8
    LIW: 136
    Net Loss: 13.6#

    DietDoc Mini Review:
    I did this round with Diet Doc and I was really impressed with their services and quality of their products. I had a great experience and I think the lipotropics helped increase my losses, which surprised me. I used their compounded HCG with the original protocol and had the most peaceful and comfortable round of all this time. I think that the theanine that is compounded with their HCG was responsible for consistent good sleep which has eluded me in other rounds. Read my full Diet Doc review here.

    Round 9: (28 doses, 28 days)

    This spring, I found myself edging too close to the 140 mark (my adjusted LIW became 138 after a time) so when I started to go over that, I decided to do a short round not only to take that bit of extra off, but to try to get under my goal so that I had a little more wiggle room coming out of P2. I seem to always have to adjust my LIW up 2-5 pounds, so my hope was I could end far enough below goal to actually be able to stay there.

    My round was quite successful. Because of an upcoming trip, I knew I would not be able to do a 30 dose round with skip days and still finish P3 before I embarked, so I did not skip and ended the round at 28 doses. I'm back to my goal round measurements, and 3 pounds below goal. I'm going to try a little different P3 strategy and go really heavy on greens and leafies doused in good fats this time and see if that can keep me at LIW more reliably. My suspicion is that in previous P3s I have not been vegetable-focused enough. (Except for avocados. ) I'll try to remember to report back and let you know how that worked.

    Interestingly, my total loss is exactly the same as my previous round (13.6) even though it was nine days shorter and without lipotropics. I had thought the lipo made a difference last time, but apparently I just did better without them.

    An update for round 9: It about the 4th week of P4 and I'm right at goal. The veggie loading was fairly successful. I've had a couple of correction days, but actually have found myself up to 2 pounds below LIW at times, and today I'm right at 133.

    What I have taken to doing is that if I start to see the scale inching up, I do a couple of friendly days from The Plan. Those are mainly vegetable-centered vegan menus with lots of good fats from oils and seeds. I also have a friendly day that includes sprouted bread and a lot of fruit, so if feel carb-needy, I can choose to do that one as well. So it seems a strategy that is working for me so far. The real test is about to begin, as I usually do pretty well for the first month of P4 and then start to run into problems with correction days not fully resetting me, or not locking in. So it remains to be seen if my new strategy pays off.
