Round 3 Wrap Up!!!

Rate this Entry
Round 3 done! R1 start 11/5/11 - R3 end 8/6/12

I am in total awe of HCG!!! The program does absolutely what it says it will do...
Total Weight loss 64.25 lbs Total Inches lost 58.50 Sizes dropped from 18W to 8!

I will put up a post later in the Success thread as I want to encourage as many people as possible to try this for themselves. But the real clincher for me is looking at my mid section --- I lost 8.5 inches in my waist, 9.25 inches in my stomach and 8 inches in my hips!!! Thats 26 inches in just those 3 areas. What is even more difficult for me to believe is how I allowed myself to gain that much weight again. I truly was in a metabolic trance and helpless to stop the continuous gain. We have got to wake people up in this country. I think when people see soo many other obese people, it is almost like its OK and you are not alone! And of course, the food acts as a drug and your brain reacts and you really are helpless against all that!

My LDW is 161.6! I feel like this is a good place to stop and resume eating for the long term. I need to add in more carbs for Thyroid health. I need to get my energy up now and concentrate on quality of lfe and balance. I am going to step up the exercising and turn to weight training for firming --- also doing skin brushing and taking MSM and copied Dr Kruse list of supplements as well.

After a while, I will look toward reducing further to get down to 148 --- slowly ---and hold there. If I cant do this on my own, I may do another short round after the holidays. 148 seems to be a number that feels ok for me at 5'4" --- the Dukan site settled me at 158 for a lifetime number and I am very near that, now. Either way, I am THRILLED with my results!!! The 8s and 10s fit well now..even the size 8 white jeans that I bought as a vote of confidence in myself fit well! I do have a few things that have been gathering dust in my closet for 10 years (leather pants and skirts from Italy! EEEKKK!!!) and so are sized smaller --- that's the real goal! Once they all fit, its all good! Really, what I need is major firming!

Thanks so much to all of you that have supported me in this very long and sometimes confusing process. I believe that the support and the knowledgeable people on this site is a very real key to success. THANK YOU!

If you have been lurking and reading and hesitating... jump on in. It is a great program with the most rewarding results I have ever experienced.
If you are doing HCG and thinking of quitting...DONT... please complete the program --- especially if you are younger. Dont waste these years living a half life. Lose the weight and gain back the energy you deserve!
If you are older, like me...its never too late to be the BEST YOU possible.

    Wow...this is such an amazing story...so inspiring!! I would love to see before and after pictures as well. I can't thank you enough for sharing your experiences. This is my first round, and I'm only on day 5 of the VLCD. It all sounds so far away...and I'm not very good with any of the food techniques yet. I see people eating meals and so on cooked more elaborate with the few things we can have, but I'm so nervous to do any of it.

    I just put up a post the other day about emotional and eating patterns, and how after just a few days I am seeing them, and acknowledging them. Aside from the weight, this is such a learning experience. People like you help make us stronger and more determined. I hope in a years time, I can do the same for someone else in my shoes now!
