  1. Back again, and ready to lose.

    I'm baaaaacccccckkkkkk!

    It's been a while since I have done a serious hcg round. Time that was filled with large amounts of weight gain, cancer, and a hubby in a coma.

    My husband became ill on our vacation with full blown influenza. I took him to the hospital, where the staff put him into a medically induced coma. A month later he was out of the coma, and had to do physical therapy. He is much better now, working and doing, but there are some lasting issues.

  2. My 9th Anniverary

    Just wanted to share with everyone my wonderful 9th anniversary with my husband!

    Being on P2 really limits your choices at what you can and cannot have, usually the cannots being the largest group.

    First, I used the day to do a short fasting (just until dinner). We went to the Batting Cages (my choice), then we did some shopping at some specialty stores (Trader Joe's and the like) and then we went to dinner at Pour Folks. I knew going in what I was going to have, ...

  3. Losing More Inches Than I Am Tall!

    I am on R2 VLCD 60 (yes, I am going long, and no, I wouldn't recommend doing it this way). After a disappointing weight loss week, I took my measurements, and found that I am down another 4.5"! Yea! That's 30" since the start of R2.

    Looking back on R1, I added up my losses and found that I am down a total of 74.5"! I am 69" tall, so I have lost my height plus more (with plenty more to lose!).

    Never put all your faith in the scale. Measure ...

  4. One Pound of Fat One Pound of Muscle

    While cruising thru the forum, I noticed someone mentioned that there is no difference between one pound of fat and one pound of muscle. I would like to argue this.

    There is a huge difference between fat and muscle. One pound of muscle is far better! Why? Muscle actually works for you. It burns calories, it makes you stronger, with it you can become more healthy. What does fat do? It sits there. If you don't make any attempt to get rid of it, it will just grow and get heavier. ...

  5. Back again and ready to LOSE!!!

    I am on my third VLCD, and in cruise mode. This is the first morning I have felt hungry (like that's possible on a load day!), but nothing unreasonable. I have lost 5.8 lbs in the past 2 days (although I gained 4+lbs during load).
    I was rereading my other blogs here, and am just amazed at how far I've come. I feel like I don't remember being 325lbs (actually I do, vividly, but it seems far away).

    I began HCG in February of this year, and stayed VLC for 70 days (not recommended), ...

    BBQ Chicken Sandwich. Yummy.

  7. Leap Day thoughts on Cheating

    One of my dear sisters here was mad at herself for eating a sandwich that she thought looked good. One of my bothers on here is OK during his work week, but struggles on weekends.
    So many stories that I have read here are about "cheating". After they do, they regret, they beat themselves up, and then they have a hard time bouncing back to protocol.
    If you are interested, here are my thoughts on "cheating".
    Cheating implies that you are trying to be sneaky ...

  8. Losing Like a Man Part 2

    HCG has been a God send! I am still seeing great losses, even 19 days VLC. 33 lbs in just under 3 weeks? Insane, but ever so cool.
    I do get a twinge of losers remorse, because I am losing so well. OTOH, if I didn't let myself get this big, my losses wouldn't be so great.
    My dear HCG sister PamelaDo had mentioned that she hadn't seen anyone lose more than 40 lbs in one round. Since she seems to be losing at the same pace I am, it looks like we will both meet and beat that one!!! ...

  9. A Delightful Lunch and Why I am Going Paleo

    While reading my Kindle copy of The Paleo Recipe Cookbook: 101 All Natural Gluten-Free Meals and Desserts (by Michelle Tracy), I came across a recipe for Paleo Taquitos.

    There was no need to alter the recipe in any form! Instead of tortillas the recipe calls for steamed cabbage leaves. Out of the 3.5 oz of ground beef, I got 4 taquitos! Add a bit of salsa and viola, wonderful lunch.

    It's tasty recipes like this that turned me on to the Paleo diet (caveman diet). ...
