  1. First weight day after VLCD

    I am happy to say that the scale was down 2.4 lbs this morning!
    Today I was less hungry than yesterday, so that was good. I was still pretty hungry though from about hour and half after lunch until dinner. Hoping tomorrow I feel less hunger.

    Made a yummy dinner. Actually I enjoyed both of my meals today.
    Lunch was Grilled white fish (Swai) with herbs and raw spinach.
    Dinner was chicken breast cooked in cast iron skillet with an apple sliced with it, and ...
  2. A (nervous) New Beginning

    . Tomorrow will be my first VLCD! I am very anxious to see how my body reacts to HCG. I have been on Many diets throughout my life and could always lose 40 - 60 lbs if I tried a new plan and stayed focus. The trouble for me is keeping it off. 2 years ago, I lost 60 lbs and then it stopped...poof! I have been watching all but the last 15 lbs creep back on.
    Now, my goal is to lose 65 lbs. When I get there I will think about how that feels and decide if I need to lose more... But I would ...
  3. Tips/Thoughts after four VLCDs

    I thought I would share my thoughts after almost four days on Phase 2.

    1) I was hungry, no sugar-coating it. But I reminded myself that I made myself fat and I was sticking to this.

    2) Carbonated water in the evenings help me. I add sliced lemon and ice and this seems like a treat.

    3) It gets better. Day 3 was brutal with a bad headache but day 4 is so much easier.

    4) Keep busy. At home - clean, sew, whatever busies your hands and mind. ...

  4. Quest to lose those last 20 pounds

    Hi, my name is Tamara and over the past 10 years I have managed to gain 25 pounds. My father introduced me to the diet. Both he and his wife lost over 20 pounds each and have maintained for a couple of months and are now at their respective desired weights.

    Well I started the HCG Diet on October 30, 2011. I am using the homeopathic drops. I loaded for two days and didn't take the drops.....didn't realize I would have to and didn't weigh myself.

  6. Still hungry-thinking Paleo Leptin Reset

    by , November 4th, 2011 at 04:02 PM (Hellobikini Getting to her Bikini)
    Well yesterday was a good day until night and then I was STARVING!
    AGain very uncomfortable. The day was going so well, both hunger wise and energy wise.
    I am now weak and headachy and upped my protein today.

    I have been reading a lot on the Paleo/primal and reset business that I am seeing all over this forum. It really peaks my interest. I am thinking it could be a major issue for me.
    In my searches and reading I have come across some things on HCG messing with ...
  7. Feeling Grateful

    I am feeling so grateful for HCG, the doctors that recommended it to me, for my perservance with it and all of you. Being on this vacation has helped me to realize how much fuller my life is with 60 something less pounds. I say 60 something cause I lost a few before HCG. I feel so much more comfortable. I am happier with how I look, how my clothes fit, how much easier it is to be active and the airplane seat and seatbelt was even comfortable. There is so much more but I am sure you get the gist. ...
  8. Thank you to all of you who post on this blog

    I have been reading this blog site in anticipation of beginning my journey. Although I do not know any of you personally, you have already made my beginning less stressful.

    I am new to being overweight. I was lucky enough through the majority of my years to be thin, at least not obese as my current BMI tell me. I am 4'11" and 46 years old. I weighed around 117 for most of my adult life. During a rough patch I went down to 110, that was 2008. Today the scale read a whopping 161.8. ...
  9. Quick question....

    Which weight do we refer to as our new set weight - the last shot day weight or the last VCLD weight. And is the fluctuation from that weight 2 lbs or 3 before we do a correction day?
    Thank you in advance for info!
