  1. Only gained 1pd gorging! Today is day one of VLCD

    Happy Monday! Seriously I couldnt wait for it to be Monday and begin this journey! Sat and Sun were load days. AND I ate til I couldnt eat anymore. I am worried however, I only gained 1 pound total! I ate burgers, fries, breakfast sandwiches, bernaise sauce, bread & butter and on and on. Regardless of what the scale says, I know I loaded correctly. My husband on the other hand, gained 5 pounds!
    So here I am today, ready to execute this protocol!

  3. Time to Change ! Day 15

    Good Day Fellow HCG'ers, Today is day 15 on P2 I have lost 8.5 pounds to date. I can honestly say that I did eat a couple things i should not have but it did not seem to affect my weight. I know that I did not drink enough water yesterday and so today I will be diligent about that part. Bought some coconut oil and will try to use that tonight for my supper. I really want to exercise and will start to walk now this week to get these 10 pounds off. The remaining 10 i will try to lose during the ...

  4. What does she look like?

    Since beginning my weight loss journey I catch myself looking in the mirror a lot more than I used to. I used to avoid the mirror. I could not stand to see the person looking back at me. I lost over 30 pounds over the past two years due to health problems but never really saw a difference. Now, with only 10 pounds lost on HCG I feel so differently. I really feel smaller, and I wonder. I look at the me in front of me and wonder who the woman that has been hiding inside of me for so long looks. ...

  5. First days....

    I loaded November 5th and 6th.
    Tonight I weighed after 2 loading days and weighed 215.5 Not happy and a little panicked to be honest.
    I will weigh in the morning for my official read at the start of my 1st VLCD. I will try to journal my food. Just to see how it goes for a while...that way if I need help tweaking it will be easy to reference. I am nervous about the next 3 weeks but also very excited. I want to see results soon so I can feel encouraged to keep going. I am so unhappy

  6. 1st timer, very hungry on P2 Day 2. Please help.

    I'm R1 P2 Day 2 and very hungry by both evenings (starting drops on first load day - 11/3/11). I'm at 294 cal so far today with dinner coming soon, and I feel

  8. Reflections from a Newbie

    After just 15 days on hCG, I've lost 13.8lbs: 3" from waist, 1" neck, 2.5" chest, and 2.25" off hips. In. Just. Two. Weeks.

    And yes, I thought, "This will never work for me." Why? Because I don't have a thyroid. (Lost it to cancer 2 years ago, then lost gall bladder this summer. Running out of organs here people.) And I'm diabetic. After the gall bladder surgery in August, I started researching the impact of diet on our overall health and ran ...

  9. R3 P3 D1 Ready to Stabilize FOR Good!

    Well, I haven't been feeling very "bloggy" lately, but I wanted to update, because I'm in P3 today and I met my goal--the weight number and the size 6 I was hoping for. I'm a little nervous about stabilizing, but I know without a doubt the method works if you do it correctly. I stabilized perfectly after Round 1, and I followed P3 and P4 rules. In round 2, I got cocky and lazy and did my own thing, which was not a good plan, so I started to regain. This time, I've learned from my mistakes, ...

  10. Loading - fun? NOT so much

    Yesterday was day one of loading, today is day two. I will begin my vlcd tomorrow and I have never wanted a Monday to come sooooo fast! The thought of eating fatty, rich foods again today is making me almost ill! But I will gorge again today because everything I have read says it really does contribute to better success. So I am off to get and eat bacon/egg/cheese sandwich from Dunkin Donuts. Really going to miss my coffee the most! I blend regular Dunkin Donut coffee with their vanilla coffee ...
