    Angry Lovely Losers 2021 - NO STOPPING n November!!

    Hello to all of the Lovely Losers out there from Coco (aka sdwis). Here's your new thread for NOVEMBER 2021.

    SPECIAL NOTE:
    We all know how challenging it can be if you are on your HCG Journey during this time of the year. Everyone else is eating to excess with no apologies, and could care less about their weight. If you are brave enough to be in the middle of a round, or just finishing a round at Thanksgiving, you need extra encouragement to stick to it, so HERE IT IS.

    If you are lucky enough to be LOADING during this time you have lots of fatty choices, ENJOY!!!!

    This joyful and jubilant group of HCGíers have been starting new threads every month for years to prevent people from having to sort through literally thousands of old posts, and making it easier for new people to join in.

    Please note as you read through the posts:

    We are all in different phases of HCG.
    We all use different methods of HCG.
    What is right for YOU, is right for YOU and we respect that. We donít judge.
    We discuss ALL aspects of our individual journeys to a healthier lifestyle.
    And MOST importantly, while we can be a little naughty and nutty (always with humor!! ) we are NICE to each other!!



    So, whether you are just starting, finishing or are somewhere in between . . .

    You ARE Welcome!!
    The Moderator currently known as Coco :

    Stable @ 150 for over 7 years. Height - 5'10
    Starting Weight: 220 lbs.
    Lost 70+ lbs. in 4 rounds.
    Went from Size 14/16 at my heaviest weight to Size 4/6 NOW !!!

    November ah the holidays always a challenge.
    Hi everyone! I have been absent but still read the boards. So busy at work but this week got a surprise week off so have some time.
    So sorry about the struggles but we have all been there. For me anyway, thats why I wait so long before doing a round. If I get into it when my heads not right, it tends to go sideways. But I have gotten my order of patches and will go for the last ten pounds in January. Trying not to throw caution to the wind because I want to actually learn how to keep it together. Have settled within 2-3 pounds above last day weight so I'm ok with that & thats pretty typical for me. When I go overboard, i just don't eat breakfast and stick with clean eating for a day of two and I'm golden. Hope everyone continues to hang in there and keep up all the good work! It is all about mindfulness in P3/4 just gotta think about benfit vs. risk.
    Cheers!

    Hi Jeanette, mind my asking where you order your patches from? I think I used them once years ago, and I didn't mind them at all. I really think after the first of the year I wouldn't mind doing a round of the hhcg and not the injections. I'm curious to see if the weight is lost from different areas from homeopathic than from rx hcg. Do you think the patches work as well with cravings as anything else? I agree with you, if you keep your weight within the 2 lb window as Dr Simeons suggest, or at least approx. within that window, then if you gain a little extra, after a few days of clean eating, you're usually "golden" again, as you say. I did so good night of Halloween, but yesterday, I got into the leftover Tootsie Rolls, I love them, they are my favorites. But they are gone now, thank goodnews. So this morning I was up 1 lb. Naughty me. But it was so good! Seriously am interested in the patches? Thanks.

    Hi Dubbles-
    I adore the patches never got hungry or thought about food but your mileage could vary,
    I get them from insideoutwellness.com, I get the hcg & the curb cravings patches so I wear two at a time. For me I wonít do anything but these again cause the pellets & drops
    Just donít work the same & Iím too busy at work!

    Thanks Jeanette, I will order some of these patches. I am sure I used patches at some point and liked them, it's been years tho. I have rx, pellets and I have drops--personally, they all work, but I hate the inconvenience of the drops and pellets, too. I've been curious to try the hhcg again for a round, to see how the weight comes off and from where with the homeopathic vs rx. I know I've complained ad nauseum about loss in face, but I feel like on rx my face got thinner and I'd like to see if I could lose a couple of lbs and not see so much from my face. So after first of the year, I'd like to try the patches. Thanks, and I don't remember using 2 patches, so will try that as well. Thanks for the tip. Hope you are doing well this week, I'm heading your way tomorrow! Going to visit family again, looking forward to the drive, leaves changing, should be a beautiful drive.

    After Halloween one day ate a lot of Tootsie Rolls (a lot) went over LDW a bit, but like you said--did a couple days of clean eating so have dropped again to 151.8, 1.8 below LDW now--the plan works when we work it. Always good to know what we have to do! Thanks again for info. Have a good one! Blogging your post so I won't lose it!

    Hi Jeannette, I agree, the drops are a pain to manage while working. I used their once a day tablets, and lost more this round than I ever did with drops. I bought 2 bottles of tablets, but next time I buy, will be patches.

    What are the "curb cravings" patches? Did you use them during VLCD? I was never hungry in P2, and so far not in P3/P4.

    Hey everybody, this November thread is really quiet!

    So, OK! Iíll go.

    Well, you know that job and I think Iíve complained about it a little bit, but I didnít say a lot about it because of course I figured it was me. But it wasnít . Bottom line was it was a hornetís nest. Drama. Drama queens. Stress. Disorganization. No communication. Chaos. People getting fired people getting hired for one job and then being asked to do another, while they look for somebody else. The so-called chief of operations used to be a realtor and he had never had a staff. And he had no idea how to handle 15 women. And he had no idea how to set business strategy marketing strategy etc. so he sort of just hid out in his office with his 19-year-old assistant giggling through the door.

    The owner was gone 6 1/2 weeks out of the first two months I was there. When she got home she was sick, then she traveled again, then she had family emergencies, And then she was sick again.

    I was reading a book called Should I quit? on Wednesday when the owner walked in and very gently told me she was laying me off. She told me I was not doing anything wrong, my work was great, but the COO Overextended the company to the point where they had no more money. I liked her from what I have seen of her which was approximately 30 minutes a week. So she couldíve been telling the truth. She said she was firing the COO. I talked to his cousin who used to work there and was fired earlier and she said her cousin said he was laid off and I got fired. Who knows. But I get severance and unemployment, and she is keeping me on the payroll with some unpaid days until I get some loose ends tied up financially. She may even become a freelance client of mine. So Iím thinking when itís she said he said, Iím right. Unless the owner told us each something different, which I think sheís more straight than that but not positive.

    Boy, am I relieved. The work was easy except I could never find a decision-maker. Thereís no one to ask questions of and if I did ask a question I got treated like I was stupid. Ridiculous. Stress is exhausting.

    One thing I am actually proud of. Iím still 2 pounds below my LIW. I could very easily have used this as an excuse to start eating potato chips. Etc. etc. etc.

    So donít cry for me, Argentina! I am thrilled to be out of there. I am not looking for another job. I just want to do some work, freelance, whatever, and never walk into a snake pit again!

    Onward

    Congratulations, PearlyMae, on escaping the snake pit. That much stress . . .

    I was laid off before the pandemic and I have gotten used to doing what I please. Yes, I would like more money, but I'm pretty content otherwise.

    What are tablets? Sounds interesting. I should rephrase what I said about drops/pellets. I adore them, I started with them way back when and they worked, but I did have some breakthrough hunger at times & as you know you simply can’t do this if you’re hungry. I use both patches as a preventative measure & it works for me. But as with anything, its a personal choice.

    Dang Pearly that experience sounds like a stress sandwich. I think structure is a good thing as I like rules but not to the point of being micromanaged. Freelancing or consulting sounds like freedom I could totally get into. Bet in the long run youíll feel like they did you a favor. Howís your puppy?

    Good morning, Lovelies -

    We are having our last sunny "Indian Summer" day today, then it will be cloudy, cool and rainy the rest of the week. I'm planning a walk this afternoon - the leaves have turned about 50% and the grass is still bright green. I have been busy with a project and haven't started my free weights yet, bad! bad!

    The only good thing about cloudy weather: my cats will let me sleep later.

    I hope everyone is doing well in P3/P4. It's P4D12 for me, 137.2#, so staying within my range.

    Need a pep talk or support :/

    I'm on P3D3. This is my 4th round, so I know better than what I'm currently doing, but...

    I haven't been able to weigh myself. I know I'm eating enough. I know I'm good on fat, protein, vegetables and (minimal) berries. And I've been taking digestive enzymes + magnesium + enough salt and water.

    My stomach was flat when I finished P2, and it's so bloated now I look pregnant. I'm avoiding all dairy and nuts, I ate eggs all throughout P2 and lost (I had to have an egg white for extra protein every so often, then had to cut shrimp and beef, so chicken fish and eggs was it for meat).

    I know if anything is going wrong with the scale, it's better to know about it otherwise I can't take action. But I developed a negative relationship with the scale during the last few weeks of P2, and I can't seem to shake it. I lost. 4.8 in 3 days before my last injection, and maintained LIW the following day. So I haven't weighed in about a week.

    If anyone has any supportive or motivational advice, I'm all ears. The few people who I mentioned the diet to were incredibly condescending and had a "good luck maintaining that!" quip so I just feel like total garbage, and can't stop thinking about how hilarious it would be for everyone else when I fail at this, too.

    (I did 2 rounds 10 years ago and successfully kept it off for over 5 years. I didn't have people rooting for me to fail back then.)
