Moving into P3 of R5

Rate this Entry
Finished R5 with a 19.3# loss. I did a 32 day round. I cut it short so that I would be in P4 when I visit family. it made me more secure doing it this way instead of wondering if there was hidden sugar in everything.This brings my total on HCG to 96.6# loss. I am pretty sure I will do another round but I am not sure when as of yet. I guess I will see how I feel in a couple of months and decide. I was hoping to be done by the end of the year but I also want to take a break and get my hormones in line so who knows what I will decide. I only have a few pounds to my first goal but may go lower than that. the fact that I have never been this low for any long period in my life makes it difficult for me to know where I want to be. I will just have to feel it out. It is interesting how each round is so different. This one was easy food wise but was a little harder emotionally,mainly depression. I fainted once which has happened the last two rounds but this time it was early on and was because I over exercised in the heat. The rest of the round my blood pressure felt more stable and I stayed pretty stong. The stalls however were the same pattern. I don't feel as I lost as much this round since I had a 10# gain starting but for some reason I feel leaner. Maybe it is all the yoga I have been doing. I hear stretching muscles can make you appear leaner. Not certain but I feel different. Will probably take my measurements tomorrow. p3 here I come...yum, yum. I am lucky I love healthy food!

    I have a few questions.. how long did you wait between your 1st and 2nd round. and i thought you were not supposed to exercise while on this diet? I congratulate you on your success.

    Thank Barb, It has been so long since I did R1 and R2 I can't remember but it says in Pounds and Inches and I know I followed that. If you have not read Pounds and Inches it is really important to the program and you can download it for free. As far as exercise goes the protocol is not to exercise or at least do strenuous exercise. However if you have always done some form of exercise it may be ok. In P2 I usually walk. do yoga, hike or a half hour bike ride. Those seem to be fine for me. I just went back to Zumba this last week of P2. Things like Zumba or rowing which I also do burn too many calories and I can't do them when I am eating so little. I felt pretty strong this last week so I gave Zumba a try and it was fine though I may not have pushed it as much. By P4 I exercise all I want. But everyone is different you will have to see what works for you. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Julie, it is funny cause I started with WW so I have that weight lost a very little then used myfitnesspal and have that ticker than finally and thank God found HCG and that ticker is different. Anyway when people ask how much I lost I get confused sometimes I will say since what program. I will leave it for now and it will make my next round celebratory, Not that they all are not. Thanks

    R5 and over 19 pounds, that's awesome. I'm jealous. I can't even lose 19# in my first round in a 30 day round. I'm lucky if I get to 15# in a month. Good for you. And you picked a perfect user name!!! I'll say. Oh and I am trying to make a committment to do yoga 5x a day in my new round. You can go as slow as you like, so there's should be no excuse as to have to stop! dang it.

    Hope you post your inches.
