Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey

A Newbie's dance with Hcg

  1. Hcg Heretic

    by , September 14th, 2011 at 09:25 AM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    Weigh-in: 121.5

    While perusing other Hcg blogs, I came across this link:


    Intrigued, I researched it and decided it might be something to try. Now, I'm not really good at counting calories, and it's not something I want my kids to see me do, but the flexibility of it is very alluring; an egg for breakfast, and then fro yo later on? Oooooh...

    It ...
  2. To sleep, perchance to release...

    by , August 29th, 2011 at 08:05 AM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    Weigh-in: 122
    Weekly goal: 120

    These last few days -- after ridding myself of the wretched flu, or whatever it was that I had -- were really productive. Well, with the help of 1 Senecot, and dialing down the cheating, they were. Finally I am looking at 122 on the scale. I can't believe I've been so inefficient at this diet that it's taken me 4 weeks to lose 7 pounds. I'm trying to psych myself up for the last 7. I feel like warning my kids that it's not going ...
  3. Afternoon Delight

    by , August 27th, 2011 at 04:07 AM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    no weigh-in today

    As someone who has cheated every single VLCD, I'm blaming my husband for my not losing much weight. For two very different reasons:

    First of all, he should know that I'm dieting --because I told him, not because men really notice these things, like a measly 5 lbs, or that you're only eating salad or constantly salivating over the kids' pasta, or weighing yourself hourly. Naturally, since I've announced I was going on a diet loads of ...

  4. A Chocolate a Day Stays on Your Hips

    by , August 26th, 2011 at 11:58 AM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    Weigh-in: 124

    Woe is me (shouldn't that be "I"? Nevermind). Poor little sick girl, with 2/3 of the children sick, trying to keep up with the housecleaning, laundry, making 2 batches of chicken soup and her video seminar. No running for 4 days and no weight training for a week. Those lucky Burka-clad saps in Afghanistan don't know suffering.

    What would cheer her up, above anything else? That's right! The chocolate cake lurking in the freezer. ...
  5. Death Becomes Her

    weigh-in: 124

    Ugggh... I'm sick.

    I don't know how any of you manage to diet while sick, but all I want is comfort food. Thusfar, I haven't completely cleaned out the cabinets, but, with no exercise going on, my weight is hovering around where it's been for these past few weeks. Blast! I was really hoping for a starvation-like shedding of a few pounds, but no, not really... I'm really hungry, but now I just don't have other distractions and I can't ...
  6. Turning over a new leaf

    by , August 22nd, 2011 at 09:43 AM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    VLCD 20/P3D1
    Weigh-in: 123.5

    Good to see that the pool party did very little damage. Wisely, I offered to bring a salad (Chicken Caesar) and augmented my plate w/ a bun-less veggie burger. Well, I also chose a margarita and a glass of Spanish wine, and ice cream later on, so it wasn't all goodie-two-shoes eating... gossiped with a good friend while swimming with the kids, helped set up/clean up, kept busy and didn't hang out too much near the food tables. My husband told ...
  7. The Identity Crisis

    by , August 20th, 2011 at 10:16 AM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    VLCD ??
    weigh-in: 123.8

    Random thoughts:

    I'm feeling a bit disingenuous. I'm not really sure I belong here; I don't fit the box of good Hcg dieter, don't follow protocol, cheat constantly and doubt the regime's efficacy. I feel like an Hcg fake.

    What I do like is the feeling of being committed to a specific, simple program, the accountability, the camaraderie, and being able to blog about all this.

    Is that enough? Well, ...
  8. A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

    by , August 15th, 2011 at 02:08 PM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    VLCD 14
    Weigh-in: 123.1

    Well, I was glad to see I'm on my way out of the 123s... I was *not* glad to see pictures of my body. I don't know if I'm myopic -- I hope not, just had LASIC 6 years ago - but I would have though someone my weight who exercises would look better... oh, well, the pictures are meant to serve as a motivation, not a modeling portfolio...

    Tomorrow will be another day...

  9. That Cheatin' Heart

    by , August 14th, 2011 at 10:07 PM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    weigh-in: 123.6

    On one hand I'm skeptical that Hcg can help me lose any weight at all. On the other hand is the realization that I've cheated every single VLCD... Every one. Who am i to judge a protocol i didn't *really* follow?
    The worst has been these last few days when, in addition to other verboten items, I finished off a pint of chocolate ice cream and 3 double chocolate bars from Ikea... Well, don't wag your finger, it was TOM!
  10. The Numbers Game

    by , August 13th, 2011 at 12:05 PM (Undersize Me... My Hcg Journey)
    Weigh-in 123.6

    My scale is torturing me. Not in a "Please-please-please-be-a-smaller-number" way, but in an inconsistent way. I would be happy if it just gave me an accurate number and then left me alone to deal with the aftermath (excuse the pun). Does anyone else have a scale that changes its mind?

    Morning routine:
    1. brush teeth/pee/check email on ipad (all at the same time)
    2. weigh in: 124.1 (disbelief, steps back ...
