    Unhappy losing less than everyone

    I started at 141 after loading days, and with the injections and 600 calorie diet for 21 days (administered by an hcg diet dr) I only lost 9 lbs. I'm just starting P3 and if this is supposed to stabilize - no more weight loss- I'll be very unhappy that I've gone thru this tortuous diet for 9 lbs. Anyone else have this problem??

    How close is 141 to your goal weight?

    Does the nine pound loss include the weight you gained loading? 12-15 pounds would be an average loss for the short (23 dose days) round. But that average is figured from the weight on the morning of your first low calorie day, meaning any load weight is part of the total loss for average loss purposes.

    It sounds like you may have been doing some variation, since the protocol specifies a 500 calorie limit during the weight loss phase.
    If you had a different food list, that could be a factor as well.

    Thanks for your response. Starting at 140 my goal was 125. Today starting P3 I'm at 131. I lost one lb after the loading days and the 1st day of diet and injection. I've always drunk more than a gallon of water a day, walk at least 10,000 steps and had no cheats (very hard!!) and received a b-12 shot every week. Does anyone ever lose additional weight during P3?

    First congrats for making it through with no cheats. That is awesome. This diet takes determination to eat in a boring way for the whole length of time, even though its great to not have to deal with hunger! I think your result is a bit below average, but some do find that they lose slower when nearer to goal weight. I'd say you got an OK result. We have some on the forum that only manage to lose about 5 pounds in a round. I always marvel at their determination to go ahead and brave it anyway for such a minimal return. Maybe that will help you feel a bit better about your progress.

    My own experience was that I lost about the same each round. I lose about 12-14 pounds in a 30 dose round, and around 18-20 in a 40 dose round.

    Its ok to lose a little during P3, and some do, but your goal in P3 is to stay within a window of 4 pounds (2 over or 2 under your ending weight) for 21 days in order to lock in a new lower set point. If you lose a pound or two beyond that is great, but if you get into the territory where your loss is 5-7 pounds under, then you are doing something wrong and can jeopardize your stabilization.

    youre pretty close to goal weight. I've noticed people who weigh less seem to have smaller losses in general. That being said - I agree. I'd be pissed if I went through this for 9lbs. So I feel your pain. Do you struggle with losing weight in general? I feel like 9lbs could have been lost without hcg in 30 days with just diet modification and increased exercise.

    Monday will be my day 21. I am close to goal weight and have only lost 7 lbs, but this is normal for me being this close to goal. I was hoping to do a short round but will likely need to do another week to ten days to get to where I want to be. On the other hand, this is the only diet that I am able to be successful at losing these pounds, so for me, itís worth it because I know it works. I tried other plans including a cleanse but these few pounds would not come off. If you ever do another round you might consider ordering an online kit and doing it yourself so have the flexibility to extend your round by a few days if needed or desire to.
