    UPDATE: Finally at GOAL :)

    Just finishing up my 7th and (hopefully) last round of HCG and thought I would update this topic.

    I am finally AT GOAL. Although this past year I was able to maintain at around 150 by following the FMD (fast metabolism diet) plans, I could not lose any more that way. It was good though, because it taught me that I CAN maintain my progress and am not doomed to continually losing this weight over and over again as I go forward.

    Also this past year, I became allergic to my beta blocker med (Coreg/Carvedilol) and it became necessary to get off of it. Beta blockers are nasty drugs to stop and you have to wean off them slowly. Luckily, I had a stash of old pills that didn't cause the allergic reaction of the new formulation so I did have the option to wean off. Could I have gotten them switched out for something else? probably. But I've been on them way too long, and I think they have caused a lot of issues of their own. Also, the beta blocker was really not controlling my numbers very well anyway. My doctor had said that he thought I could get off them if I lost enough weight. Enter the answer--HCG. I would do one last round, even though I really did not want to. I started a weaning strategy regimen with a supplement cocktail of fish oil, CoQ10, various amino acids, hawthorne, nattokinase and a few more. It took about 5 months. The withdrawal reactions were scary and violent, but I continued and reduced the dose sufficiently to the point where I was on the last step as I started this last round of HCG. My plan and hope was that the blood pressure reducing effects of the HCG & weight loss would combine to help me with the final effects of stopping the drug.

    And it worked. I'm off the drug. I've lost to goal at 133 pounds. And my blood pressure numbers are in the normal range. And I'm now wearing sixes and fours.

    And not only that, but I am me again for the first time in decades. Not just the me in the mirror, but the me that feels like me physically. That drug is intended to keep your heart rate low, but it apparently dampened a lot of other things too, and may have even done some damage along the way. I feel incredibly different (and well!) without it.

    I just want to encourage anyone that is walking a similar journey that it can be done. HCG can be the tool that helps you finally have success over a part of your life that has never been in your control before.

    I've lost 73 lbs in 2 rounds of HCG injections.. Ready to start around 3 next week. I need this for my severe back problems, and now disc problems that popped up in my neck.
    This time I am going to be mixing the HCG in my own I have the correct ingredients, the Bac water, sterile bottle- darkened, etc.. For the 5,000 IU HuCog HCG how many CC's of bac water do you mix with this.. I've seen conflicting reports.. 16.. 20... I have to get this right.
    Any info will be appreciated!!

    Hi, Great losses. A lot of us mix 10ml(cc) bac water with a 5000ius vial of hcg. A 2:1 solution. So whatever dose you start with, you will need to take that into account. Example. If you start at 125ius, you will use .25cc. If you start at 100ius, you will use .20cc. What was your dose in you last round? Now Dr. S. mixed a 4:1 solution and that is fine also. Grammy says both are good. But lately a lot of people are being sent .3cc syringes and if that is your case, those are only big enough to mix 2:1. Good luck with you new round!

    I was previously on .50cc injections when it was mixed with the 5000 IU HuCog is what I was told. I need to get on protocol again. So I can get more weight off of my back. 77lbs has been a miracle but this round as close as I can get to 35/40 the better off I am. I have had 4 discs collapse In my neck, and I'm in horrific pain. Last time I found that what worked best for me was 21 days on.. A 5 day planned break of Maintenance foods only then finish up the 40 days. This just gave me the mental stamina with being able to have the eggs for 5 days to finish 40 days. I also started to loose again at a better rate the second half. I'm not sure I understand that but it happened. I am excited to start Round 3!! This is the perfect time to start my load because it's my daughters Graduation Tomorrow and a holiday weekend!! Any help would be so very helpful!!

    Wow will read thru this thread later...but congrats!

    Inspired! And I have tried everything...in fact worked out so hard not losing at that I tore my meniscus. Feels good to actually finally sit on my rear and lose weight...is this what skinny people feel like? Lol.

    I went from 262 to 230. Next goal is 205, then ultimately 180. I will say at 230, i hold my wt well and people think I am 170 lol not! I have been everything from 226-292 in the past 17 years and I have not been able to get under 226 so this October r2 it will happen!

    Amazing that even after 4 rounds, one keeps losing!

    Questions 1. What were your losses each round?
    2. Did you have to go up in dosage each time higher and higher, that is what my npath seems to think.

    My story is crazy too...thyroid adrenal...stomach condition, knee issues, and liver issues so I thought I would never drop weight ever again! Even 2 hour a day workouts and 1500 calories= a 2 year stall


    Ps I did injections, premixed was fine, even lost all 43 days. It did not lessen in potency.

    I never got any benefit from exercise. Not only just no weight loss, but it never made me feel better. HCG has totally validated my observation that exercise is not completely necessary for weight loss.

    Amazing that even after 4 rounds, one keeps losing!

    I lost pretty much the same amount on each full round. You can see my stats in my blog post here: http://hcgdietinfo.com/hcgdietforums...y-stats-20728/

    Your npath is completely wrong about raising dose on subsequent rounds. If anything, you need less HCG each round. I started out at 165iu. That actually worked through the middle of round 6 when I had some hunger issues that told me I needed to reduce the dose. My last round I ended at 100iu.

    Congrats on your progress...and sticking with your plan.

    Hi Leez!

    I had to come in and read about your rounds... Thank you so much for writing this.
    I have had many of the same experiences with "before" diets.. Protein only diets (I love ketosis but in the past it has not loved me.. ie: Electrolyte loss).. Fasting, etc.

    Your progress is AWESOME! In your progress of your rounds it looks like you did 7 week rounds. Am I reading that right?
    I am of course ALREADY looking forward to my 2nd round. I was supposed to do 6 weeks this time but am only getting in I think 31 injections. I would love to do 7 weeks next time.

    Well just had to come say hi! You are my hero.

    Hi miss DaisyHair

    Yes, I did 40 injections rounds for all rounds except round 6.

    I think what might be most remarkable about my story is that I never had maximum losses in any round, just barely average. But in the end I got there. And after nothing else worked. It shows there is hope for others like me.

    I think too that when you finally find what is working it's not like we didn't have the "sticktooitness" we didn't fail the stupid diets, they failed us. When you discover that something actually works there is no giving up or giving in. I won't be cheating. Life has been too hard. Too many health issues. I think when it is finally not just about the weight loss any more something clicks. There is just no screwing around.

    I'm looking forward to getting in 40 days! I just hope the FDA does not screw up the import anytime soon. My Dr. told me yesterday it could be happening. Then well I guess we will have to go to Rome! LOL! Somehow that does not sound so bad to me.
