My doctor advised not doing any sort of weight training because that can supposedly interefere with the HCG program on Phase 2. She suggested walking for an hour a day, and to do yoga a few times a week to tone and destress. I really would like to build some muscle mass, but I am worried about added extra poundage, even though I know it is "good" pounds from muscle, not fat. I get easily discouraged, so I may wait until Phase 3 to start toning.
ItizMe_Paula Your picture and success is so incredibly encouraging! I started around the same weight as you did, and you have given me hope that this really is possible! You look fantastic, and I cannot wait to look as amazing as you!
