    Hi Grammy! I have my Dr's appointment tomorrow. SO excited to talk to a Dr who knows all about hormones/thyroid/HCG!

    I am compiling a list of things to tell him, to try to get the most from the apt. (He doesn't take insurance.. everything is out of pocket, ouch!).

    So I will tell him my first round was fake drops for part of the time/gained it all back.
    This round, never cheated, full 40 days, started out with a gain first day of P3/as of today I am up 16lbs from LDW.
    I can eat a ton=gain
    I can eat a little=gain
    I can eat breakfast=gain
    I can skip breakfast=gain
    CD's are hit-or-miss now/gain it back anyways
    Walk at gym=gain
    Don't walk at gym=gain
    I don't eat any problem foods, only meats/veggies=gain
    I stopped the Depo after 8yrs of being on it
    I'm tired all the time
    Terrible irritability/mood swings/just NOT myself
    Bloating (I'll show him the Reglan my Family Dr put me on)
    I'm bringing in my blood work, and telling him my Family Dr said it was FINE, but you said my T3 is LOW

    Does that sound good? You would be the only person that has been there everyday through out this, and knows the most about me! LOL
    Am I missing anything? The lady on the phone said he'll want to do blood work and a saliva test (again.. everything is out of pocket). Do you think I need both?

    Oh man.. this is MY LAST HOPE!!!

    Oh I'm SO glad you found a bioidentical dr! I was just thinking about you again this morning and wondering how you were doing. Remember, it's going to take time for that Depo shot to get out of your system. And you'll need to get your female hormones tested. Go over to StoptheThyroidmadness.com and print out some stuff about the optimal ranges. I'm just sure you have some thyroid issues. When he runs the bloodwork for your female hormones, get a pregenenolone and a reverse T3 as well. Email me afterwards if you would. I'm going to be traveling to my big writers conference tomorrow and will be gone for 10 days so checking in here will be spotty and I really want to know how you're doing. And yes I'd do a saliva test if you haven't had one. That will check your cortisol levels and if they're out of whack, it can cause all kinds of hormonal stuff. Your hormones are all interrelated. I know it will be expensive, but it will be the best money you've ever spent to get this right.

    And luckily, he'll put you on the right thyroid, not Synthroid. I'm SO relieved you are going somewhere else. I wanted to choke that other doctor!

    Thanks Grammy. This would help with the wardrobe issue. It's still kind of hot where I am and wearing sandals would help me out.

    Hi colleenn,

    I was wondering if you saw my question? What do you think? Thank you

    I've got a serious issue Grammy. I have true hypoglycemia and docs had me increase my fat intake years ago for that.

    I had intense hunger pangs (stomach rumbling) last night without feeling hungry but my blood sugar bottomed out. Don't know what it was last night but it's been known to drop to 39.

    I had severe chills/shakes and could not get warm starting about midnight. My hypoglycemic attacks cause intense physical pain too. Also had confusion and some shakes this morning. Today is a skip for me.

    I weighed yesterday and had lost just under 2 pounds. I do not want to stop. I know the hypoglycemia is a sign that the protocol is trying to break the insulin resistance.

    I need to know how to handle. Am thinking of increasing protein a bit more to offset the hypoglycemic drop in the evening. Know it may slow weight loss but thinking may be better for 2-3 days until body stabilizes some.

    Your thoughts?

    Grammy thanks again. I had already taken my 10 dosage so if it's the same today I'll try 11 on mon.

    Jessica_Lynn - Call your ins company and find out their process for submitting a claim for your dr visit yourself. Maybe you can get ur money back.

Sooo, now I'm doing my 3rd round to shape up and lose those extra pounds. I will say though, I do not breastfeed and am not on any kind of birth control shots like Depo. My baby is almost 8 months now and I have had great success with HCG. But, I have only done Rx injections. Good luck!!!
    Aww ty for the input. I am also on RX injections so thats good to know. Everyone says I look great and that I have lost all the weight but I def havent and its drivin me nuts lol. I didnt breastfeed either so luckily I was able to start dieting right away as well as working out at 2.5 weeks post partum. So Im hoping this will get rid of the rest of the weight and my inches on my hips. GRR! My belly is back to normal size but hips..def not. Did u wait the required 6 weeks in between time for rounds? My hubby is doing it with me and were considering doing another round right before Xmas...cuz itd be enough time for the break and then a short 23 day round Thanks and good luck with yur journey
    Avatar is my motivation.. that is me at the end of 2010/begin of 2011 at my happy weight and nice and fit

    Hi all, and thanks so much for all your support!!

    I'm doing my HCG program thru a Naturopathic doctor, who I see every 10 days. I'm on Day 15 VLCD and i could eat a horse! Ive had fairly constant Hunger throughout and no Eurphoria yet (darn!)... but I do have days with better energy. I get 10 pre-filled syringes at 125 dose. Yesterday I tried to increase my dose (w/2nd syringe) and miscalculated way too much. Very lethargic, muscles hurt, and still starving. I've emailed my Doc several times (nice guy, but very hard to reach!).

    What can I do in the meantime? Please help! Im afraid if i take a day off ill go on a Binge. As it is, i can barely leave the house, cuz I'm about to tackle anyone w/food! LOL! This is the longest I've stayed on a program in years, but my sheer will power is wearing off. I haven't lost in 4 days, cause I'm either in starvation mode & eating 550-600 day... and hedging up (with extra protein & veggies).


    After this Phase, I will need another source for HCG because I can't afford another $600 for 6 wks (which includes MD appts, VIT B shots, and 40 HCG pre-filled syringes). But no flexibility in dosage.

    What is the safest & most effective method for obtaining affordable RX HCG? Im currently doing IM Inj, but open to other options.

    Thank you!!!

    Not sure if Grammy is available at the moment. She is going to a conference for 10 d.

    I know it sounds counterintuitive, but u do need to skip a dose & see if you feel better by evening of that day. Hunger is in most cases a dose that is too high not too low. Had the same problem last round & believe me it helps a lot.
    Skipping is the only way to know. If u feel better by evening decrease ur dose the next day. If It's worse u ve to increase it. How many I.u. r u taking, do u know?

    I think most ppl order from escrewrefills.

    Hi again, Grammy
    I skipped my dose yesterday, gave myself 150 this morning around 11 am. It is now 1:30 and I am really hungry...distraction is not working at all. I guess that means my dose is too high. So I skip tomorrow or dose at 125 (and what would that be on an insulin needle, 5 units?). So far I have done pretty good in not caving, but I am about ready to dive head first into a box of donuts, figuratively speaking.
    Blech.

    A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
    This Journey started Memorial Day, May 28, 2012 with Loading (gained 3.6 pounds)
    VLCD (P2) started May 31 with Patches. Lost 24.4 pounds
    P3/P4 started July 21 , ended Aug. 31 at 5.2 over LDW

    Round 2 with Rx HCG Started Sept. 1 with loading @259.2

    It's too early to skip again. U can take 100 tomorrow & 125 after that.
