  1. 17 days in

    I have lost 15 lbs in 17 days with HCG injections. Of course that includes 3.5 lbs that I put on the first 2 days loading. Feeling really good as I start this 3rd week. First 2 weeks i was hungry but that finally disappeared end of last week. My biggest challenge has been giving up that glass of red wine when I come home from work....but I have remained faithfult to my VLC diet and have found that seeing that .5 to 1 lb disappear each day makes it all worth while. My energy level is high although ...

  4. First weigh in @ Day 4 VLCD

    I started VLCD day 1 on friday and was away from home and my scale for the weekend. When I got home last night, I couldn't wait to jump on the scale and see some progress even though I know you are only supposed to weigh in the morning. I was down 7 lbs. Then when I got up this am, I was down another 3! So that is 10 lbs for me from load weight and 9.6 from pre-load weight. Now if the hunger would just go away everything would be perfect.

  7. Day 15 -- not pharyngitis anymore, but finally, finally losing again.

    Unfortunately, now I can't catch my breath. And when I can't catch my breath, I breathe too fast. And when I breathe too fast, I cough. And when I cough, I can't catch my breath.

    You see where this vicious circle is going, right?

    Also, apparently today is Peer Counseling!!!! day with His Royal Assness at work. I think I am going to play up sick -- the more sick the better-- and confused.

    I have no idea what the problem was. Now that I think back, it ...

  8. Gallstone Cleanse on LR

    by , November 21st, 2011 at 07:50 AM (Hellobikini Getting to her Bikini)
    So I did the gallstone cleanse. I didn't do it exactly like I was supposed to as you are supposed to eat a low fat breakfast and I had a BAB. I figured if I didn't do it yesterday i wouldn't be able to do it until after thanksgiving. I am just too busy and you need to be able to rest and fast etc.
    It was really very difficult and I have to say the nausea and bloating is gone. I also lost a pound. A lot of green balls are coming out, weather they are stones or not I can't say.
    Unfortunately ...

  9. Struggle Day Yesterday

    Tomorrow will be one week on HCG. I struggled yesterday (Football Sunday) but stayed faithful. My bed hasn't seen my head by 9PM in years. Thought it would help fight off the hunger/temptations. All is GREAT today, and I was down 1.6lbs so that is extremely encouraging.
    Reading your blog post encourages me and helps me to understand that we all continue to struggle, but when we have bad days, you are there with words of encouragement. When we ahave good days, you all have words of praise. ...
