    Protein...it's what's for dinner, but it doesn't gotta be steak

    I keep saying there is no finish line. and I hate it when I'm right.

    Just when I finally thought I had this thing wired with the slight increase of T3--- I am all higgly piggly again. (Or is that Piggly Wiggly? No, that's an old grocery store chain!)

    I read that I am supposed to take my T3 split up in 2 to 4 doses a day, and especially need to take one before bed as the body needs T3 the most while you sleep and all the cellular level repairs are in process. I started ...

    I eat a LOT of chicken. When it comes right down to it, I am close to clucking. I don't mind, though, because I can cook it about 8 million ways and I like them all.

    I also eat hamburger, bacon, eggs, an occasional steak, an apple a day, blueberries and strawberries for breakfast, with Full Fat plain yogurt. I enjoy unsalted, raw almonds, pecans and cashews. I eat all salad veggies, and try to get one or two other green veggies in every day. I enjoy plenty of dairy, but mostly use ...

    If not for the support of my friends on the threads on this forum, there is no way I would have gotten this far! I have always struggled to keep a lean weight, but for years, that was a cycle of gaining up to 135 and then dieting back to 120. Well, that was in my 20s. To be fair, as I got older, it was getting up to 140 and dieting back to 130, then finally fighting to stay under 150. And then and then and then.... !

    Yep, I’ve done it all. Weight Watchers, Diet Center (remember ...

    I had success taking T3 at last. Down a pound the first week back in my LIW 2 pound Window.

    Another two weeks and I lost that 2 pounds and finally hit LIW for the first time in three months of struggling. I did not have an instant heart attack and felt fine. No shortness of breath, no pounding heart. One pound a week is not exactly rocket to Mars speed...though it was better than the 1 pound a month that I lost doing low calorie, low fat, low food dieting originally.

    Another piece of this whole journey is my struggle with thyroid. I have been on T4 for 20 years but still had all the symptoms of low thyroid. My temperature runs from 93.4 to 95.4! My nails are ridged, my hair is dry, my hands are always so cold, I wear gloves with the fingertips cut out when I type, 8 months out of the year. I can’t tolerate cold weather. I limped painfully from plantar fasciitis for two full years.

    Ten years ago, I was seeing a Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner, ...

    January 2014: Could this be the Last Dance?

    Since the Alice Round was so terrible, I am not counting it! It was a Nasty Dance, and does not deserve a Roman Numeral.

    2014 was “My Clean-Up Round,” back up to 149.4 after loading. Yep, regained all of the Alice Round losses instantly, and more.

    I ordered HCG and supplies online and followed the mixing instructions found on this Forum. 29-day P2, got back to 8 pounds over LIW and did a 23 day P3 and ...
  8. Dancing Backwards...

    by , August 6th, 2014 at 05:27 PM (PearlyMae's Big Adventure to get Little)
    In October, 2013, I tried to do a new Dance, but either I could not get my head into it, or the HCG from the spa was out of date. I prefer to think it was THEM not ME, but of course, it was likely just ME. Dang it.

    The spa Nurse mentioned one day that they were going to go to EpiPens so they could give customers a full 30 days of doses at once. I asked them how that would work, since HCG loses potency at about 21 days, and they just said, “No, it doesn’t.” Eeek.

    So, Dance I was a bust... but there was something about it that said HCG had potential. I am not good at doing things halfway, and I started to read about it and research it and finally decided to try it again.

    I made a plan to start a “real HCG” Dance after the holiday. I went to a local spa that advertised HCG, and this time I got a book based on Simeon’s Pounds and Inches, and I got B-12 shots once a week as part of the package. I found the HCG Diet Info forum, and found ...

    My first HCG Dance was with drops in 2012, with a starting weight of about 154. I got them from a girl friend who lost a great deal of weight and looked fabulous. She sold them to me with three-page print out of instructions.

    I struggled for 49 days and lost 17 pounds. As our friend Kansas says: WHOT???

    Looking back, I am not sure if the drops had any hHCG in them, or if they were out of date, but while weight did come off, and it was hard and slow.
