    I agree--HCG gives us the opportunity for "re-training" while losing weight (and not eating all the time). It really does highlight how much we depend on mindless snacking to fill time and its a challenge to replace that with positive activities. I spent a lot of time in my HCG rounds on this forum, and reading and researching things online so that I could form better strategies toward healthiness. I also would go out and walk instead of thinking about snacking. That helped me a lot, because it was pleasant and didn't require a lot of mental effort.
    I go outside and work in my garden or mess with the horses, go for a walk, cleaning out cupboards and closets. Never knew how much time I had in my day until I stopped eating all the time.

    Yesterday was a tough day for me. I found myself completely frustrated with the hcg process, what my body felt like, the slowing of my weight loss, etc. I tried to keep busy with my gardening but just couldn't rid myself of being in the valley. Why did I try to do it myself? God is right there to lead me beside the still waters, to restore my soul.

    This morning is new hope. Everyday is a clean slate. The sky is the limit, anything can happen! Thank You God for being here with me and reminding me who to turn to.

    Brothers and Sisters! Let's go forward in the strength of the Lord! May your day be fulfilling, your food be nourishing and your weight loss be all that you strive for.
    Hi Kristilyn,
    I totally know what you mean. I have struggled with my weight all my life, the only diet that ever worked for me in the short term was hcg and I am back again after having twins to loose the baby weight plus the yoyo weight I have to lose. When I lost weight with hcg last time, God was there. He has been the author and crafter of my life and I am thankful for all that he has given me. My family, husband and kids. God is amazing. I know that he will see us through this weight loss journey. I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know your posts are inspiring. Thanks sister. God bless. I am starting day 1 P2 tomorrow. Please pray for me.

    Feeling extremely bloated after the loading days. I am on drops prescription hcg. The first time I did hcg I used shots so I am trying something different. It's been almost 3 years since I did my last round of hcg before my marriage, kids and life. Lol. The loading days were interesting. I am so full, gassy and stuffed. Looking forward to the clean eating of hcg.

    I'm so glad you have the Lord in your life. Can you imagine how awful if we didn't? I know He's walking P2 with me as I know He is with you. I keep trying to remind myself to be grateful for this little food we have and the few choices we have. God provided this food and I need to be thankful for each and every calorie. I don't know if you know this but my hcg is in a prescription compound cream I rub on the inside of my wrists where the skin is the thinnest. Do you do the injections? I sure will pray for you. All God's kids are in this together!

    Oh wow, I couldn't hardly wait to get away from those two days. Just couldn't wait. I felt gaggy in my throat it was so disgusting.

    Hi there Yes thanks sister. I am also praying for you as well. You have done so well with your losses. Congrats. I actually am doing the drops. I used the shots or injections years ago with success but I don't want to go that route. I am doing prescription drops of hcg. Five drops in morning and evening. How do you like the topical cream? That's a new one. Perhaps I may try that in the future as I've got at least 4 to 5 rounds till goal. Yes God is good. I am on my first day of P2 and feeling ok. Having hope that this time will be successful. I tried every diet in the last year after having my twin babies to lose and nothing worked. So I decided to suck it up and go back to my tried and true. It was either hcg diet or weight loss surgery. I am somewhat hesitant of altering my body or stomach for life in the quest of losing weigh so I am leaving I as last resort. Either way. How is your Sunday going? We are going to go to church service in a little bit.

    It's my understanding that when our metabolisms are broken the hcg will get us back on track. I also don't want to go the route of weight loss surgery. I did think it would be nice to get the gastric sleeve because it would remove the chronically inflamed part of my stomach but that didn't seem to be in the cards with God or He would have made that path clear. I love using the compound cream. It's so easy. You just rub it into the inside of your wrists twice a day and where a long sleeve shirt till the cream is dry so you don't share it with someone else. The skin on the insides of the wrist is very thin so that's the place to put it. But it has to be made by a pharmacy that compounds which is where I got mine. Mine's also prescription. I wanted to say something about your twin babies; WOW! Twins, that is really something. You will be successful, you know you will. I also exercise a bit. Not formally but do work outside, physical work inside, etc. Got to move a lot to help stoke that metabolism. Are you following Dr. Simeon's protocol?

    Matthew 7:7-11 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? 11 If you then, being evil (sinners), know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!"

    This was an amazing teaching today. It really drove home to me that my prayers need to be sincere, passionate and not tossed at God and expect an answer. God will is to answer our prayers, He states that. Today I want to ask our Holy Father to please hear my prayers for all of us to be lifted into God's comfort and peace while we undertake this journey we're on. I ask God to give you the strength you need to persevere during the toughest times, to seek His help and that we all give the glory to Him. Without God nothing is possible. If you are having doubts, struggles, discouragements, my feels it too and I ask God to help us by keeping our focus on Him and not on the scale. If you are having an easy and successful time I am so happy for you and thanking God for the joy He gives us! In all things pray.

    Matthew 21:22 And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”

    A blessed Sunday to everyone!

    Yes that is what the hcg is supposed to do, reset our metabolism. I am not quite sure in regards to me if that holds true for everyone. But that is what Dr Simeon stated in his protocol. Maybe this time will be the charm for me. Yes I am following dr Simeon's protocol however this time, I am adding foods like broccoli and egg white and protein powder. So I guess I am not 100% protocol. For my sanity. I've done hcg at least 7 times. I have tried it every way. Each way successfully to lose weight I try to do what I can to stay on track. It's really hard to be on the diet. I plan to start exercise much later when I am physically able. I hope by next month after 20 pounds is gone. Much stress on my knees. I am with you on the surgery, I too would like that and I am still doing the requirements, but I was hoping I would be successful on hcg so then I wouldn't have to undergo surgery. The thought worries me.. I had a csection after my boys and the recovery was brutal. That's why I am not quick to go through surgery. Either way I am thankful to be able to do it again. I was only slightly hungry today around meal times. But I feel the usual feeling hen I am on hcg. Peeing a lot, feeling lighter. I love it. Praying I continue to hang on. How is your day going?

    Good morning Kristilyn. I survived day 1 thank God. It was brutal. Cravings and mild hunger. I found that I cannot watch commercials anymore. Lol. Just had to mute them and turn away or fast forward due to all the food stuff they show. My DH was a great support yesterday because the detox headaches started. I expected them..llbut it was still awful to experience. I prayed and thanked God today for delivering me from yesterday. Some of the things I saw as positive was the peeing through the night and the ketosis feel or dry cotton mouth feel I usually have when my body is burning Fat for fuel. I truly missed hcg diet. It's insane to say, but I am excited to see what my weight will be on Friday. I weigh once a week. Just for my sanity. I tend to get obsessive if I weigh everyday. I check my measurements every two weeks.

    The reason is, I'm doing Dr. Simeon's protocol so it will work in its time. I'm not afraid of what the scale says unless I started to gain and then there is a problem if I have not veered from the protocol. I am so glad God delivered you from the headaches. My gosh I had them in the beginning and Dr. Simeon said aspirin is ok. The dry mouth is still here. It's funny the commercials bother you. I'm bothered by the aisles of food in Walmart or the grocery store! Ha, ha, ha. It's the shiny packaging and promise of great taste. I try to remember what is being put in processed food. When I tell myself that it's easier for me to walk past them without drooling.

    In the Garden

    I come to the garden alone,
    While the dew is still on the roses,
    And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,
    The Son of God discloses.
    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own,
    And the joy we share as we tarry there,
    None other has ever known.

    VERSE #2
    He speaks, and the sound of His voice,
    Is so sweet the birds hush their singing,
    And the melody that He gave to me,
    Within my heart is ringing.
    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own,
    And the joy we share as we tarry there,
    None other has ever known.

    VERSE #3
    I'd stay in the garden with Him,
    Tho' the night around me be falling,
    But He bids me go, thro' the voice of woe,
    His voice to me is calling.
    And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
    And He tells me I am His own,
    And the joy we share as we tarry there,
    None other has ever known.
