    I'm thinking I'm fairly close...perhaps 5-7 lbs.

    Trying to shed back fat, tummy donut & love handles. :/

    I too stall every round. You don't think the stalls are thyroid related? I'm nervous about being able to maintain if Armour too low.
    Round 3:
    SW (8/1/15): 134.8 lbs. (+5 lbs R2 LIW)
    LIW (8/29/15): 123.2 lbs. TOTAL LOSS -11.6 lbs.; 17.75 inches

    Went from a tight size 12 (164 lbs) to size 6 (123).

    Apr 2016 Update: In the midst of Round 4 with a goal of ~123 lbs AGAIN, but more importantly, I'm looking to lose inches. 4/10/16: 126.6; size 6s loose.

    I have a 5000iu ovidac and I mix 1/1 ratio of 5 ml/cc bac water to it. That's weird I've always mixed my HCG at a 1/1 ratio and have had no issues taking 130iu's daily from that. I did read somewhere that some people mix 10 CC/ML which is 2/1 ratio but I've always done 1/1 and had no problems. Sounds like you think my ratio of 1/1 is still too strong for dosing so I'll take that as your answer. I think I'll add a bit more bac water to my 5000
    because at the worst then I dilute it more than I'm use to and have to increase my daily iu injections, s that correct?

    Rosie, you have 5 cc in how much? If it's 5000, that's too potent of a mix and creates a terrible time finding your dose even if everything else is perfect.

    Mixing it like that can be terrible with finding your dose, Rosie. If you need 125 for example, that's 12.5. There is no way you can get that exact every shot. But if you're happy with that mix, you can leave it that way. I wouldn't add "just a little more" and then try to figure out the dose. Personally I'd add a full 5 cc and assume you didn't lose much. it's easier to find a dose with using more fluid. Plus more fluid helps disperse it better. Dr. Simeons actually mixed 20 cc to 5000 iu. I don't know where those super potent mixes even came from. I hate them. LOL

    Rose, I doubt it has anything to do with lowering the thyroid dose. You actually were hyperthyroid so you had to lower it.

    @ Colleen, I thought I posted this question but I do not see it but: I am wondering if I can extend my round to 40 days? I am on day 21 of VLC with 2 days of skips to lower my injection dose (150 down to 125 & then 125 down to 100). I still feel hunger in the morning but not so much in the evenings. I have been under lot's of stress & am not sure if it is "head" hunger or real hunger. I took some ones advice on here and ordered a book called Apocolypse Something or another that is to help with this while doing HCG.

    Hi Grammy - I'm on day 8 today of my VLCD and am still feeling hungry most of each day. I am taking 125 HCG twice a day 0.25ml as directed by my doctor. My food is right on protocol, I'm drinking as I should. I took extra dose at lunch yesterday and it made little difference. I hVe lost 4kg (8.8p) which I'm thrilled with but I'm not sure if I can keep going feeling hungry all the time. Any thoughts ?

    VHuber, you can extend it to 40 INJECTIONS. So count your injections and that will tell you how long you can go. If you have hunger in the morning for a while after your injection, your dose might be just a tad high. You might try lowering to 90 or so.

    Lex, are you taking two injections every day? That is double what you need if you are. You won't maintain the losses if you continue to lose while hungry so it's a big deal to fix it. Skip a day of hcg and see how you feel after 4 and into the evening. You will likely feel better. If you do, you need to lower the dose. If you're taking 2 injections, eliminate the evening one. If you're doing sublingual, then lower to 100 iu 2x a day if you feel better on your skip day.

    Hi Grammy, I'm taking sublingual 0.25mls under tongue twice a day (125iu). So you suggest I skip a day then go to 100 iu 2x...Might be silly question but if I have a premixed 125iu do I just do less mls in my dropper...am I being blonde here with this question?

    Yes you just take less. If it was mixed so 25 units is 125 then you'd take 20 units. You're sure you're getting 125 in that mix? Many doctors mix it more potently and 25 units is 250 iu which is ridiculously high but some have patients take that much. Then there is hunger.

    Hi Grammy I am in P2 and need to now what is safe to use after getting my eye brows waxed. The person normally uses Vaseline. Is this ok in P2? I also wanted to let you know my week-end away I had no issues staying on protocol.

    Hi Grammy,

    I'm doing injections and my nurse never mentioned I skip a dosage. I'm on VLCD 10 and have lost 11.4 pounds. I'm 5'6" with small frame and started at 154. I'm 143 now and today was first day without a weight loss. I have no clue what dosage I'm on. I just fill the syringe to 15 ml/cc or whatever it is. (I can call tomorrow and get my actual dosage). My vial is from US Compounding and is HCG plus B12. It says 5ml multi dose after reconstitution.

    I didn't really come in with a goal weight because this is my first round/experience with HCG. I just wanted the "muffin top" area gone. So far, I've visible lost in arms/legs/breasts and my mid section is also smaller (and squisshy)!

    I assume I went in for a short round (as I didn't really even know about a long round!). But, I'm happy with the short round, lose what I lose, take Phase 3 and 4 seriously, maintain......an then see if I want/need another short round in Jan. 2016. I'm 50, fairly active, haven't had a period in 5 years/on bio identical hormones (not with HCG). Since I really didn't have that much weight to lose.........I'd be super happy with 20 lbs. (which could very well be my happy forever weight if the "muffin top" is gone)!

    My question......do I need a "skipped day". I'm hoping to lose the 20lb and not ever need to do another round. I don't understand the reason for a skipped day but want to do it IF it is in my best interests! I plan to call my nurse tomorrow but find the information on this forum from the moderators VERY helpful. You have more experience with the HCG diet than my clinic does!!!!

    Please let me know what you think. I may have passed my window for a skip day.?

    Thanks, KMac

    A skip day is done in a long round to allow you to go 40 injections. If you're just doing a short round, there is no need for skipping. But I don't like short rounds. I see way better stability on rounds of 30 days or more. You're doing 150 iu which seems to be working fine for you if you have no hunger. Your losses are good. Expect to stall or slow down this next week though. Just a heads up. It's normal. You aren't taking your hormones while on hcg? That's not good.
