    (Re)Intro and questions about drops

    Hi all,

    I'm Jenny. I'm not new here, but I haven't posted much and haven't even lurked a lot lately since I thought for sure HCG was done for a year or so ago. I got on here on a whim yesterday and was soooo happy to find that places are offering it for sale again! I have done the diet a handful of times over the past 10 years, with varying results (mostly good but never as good as that first time!). I started with Celeste drops years ago, used Nu Image drops last year that I'd held onto for almost a year before mixing up (struggled and ended up gaining). I started LDN at the beginning of the year for inflammation and ended up with a reactivated EBV infection that I have been fighting ever since (also explaining the thyroid issues, and why thyroid meds didn't fix anything). Anyway, I saw someone mention Intermountain Health drops (I can't afford the injections), and hopped on and ordered those yesterday. They should be here just in time to start the end of next week when I am ready.

    I've been reading the hhcg drops page and also about the pellets and am fascinated. I already use homeopathy, so I understand generally how that works. My last round on drops was terrible-- I was hungry all the time. I never occurred to me that it might be bc my dosage was too high. I'll be curious to see how that goes this time, and I came here so that I can have other smarter than me people help me figure that out. I've put on 35 pounds in the past 3 years (sitting at 190 as of this morning), some of which was emotional stress (gets me every time!), some was the failed diet, some was from covid lockdown, and some is just the day-to-day stress of having both disabled young adult children and elderly parents to care for, in addition to starting law school last fall. I have a big pile! But the stress and the weight all need to go! I'll be 48 in August, and it gets harder with every year to get weight off. At 5'7, I'd be happy if I could get the 35 back off, but ideally, I'd like to drop 45-50, since upper 130s-140 is where I have historically felt my best.

    Anyway, I'm really happy to be back and to have this opportunity again and know this is the place to help me make it work!

    Welcome back Jenny--I say, you definitely do have a lot on your plate. Added weight and wanting to lose that weight can contribute to more stress and frustration for you. Sounds like you have so many relying on you, you definitely need to take care of yourself foremost. If you have trouble with doseage, Leez, sdwis, several on the current threads are veterans on advising about dose adjustments. Fortunately (knock on wood) I have never seemed to need adjustments, hunger hasn 't been issue in past. But Leez is first person I would turn to for help in that direction.

    At 47-48, you are still young , seriously. I'm about 20 years older and I have lost 46 lbs since January 9th, of this year. If I can do it at my age--you can too! With hcg protocols, I don't know that age plays a large part in your losses. If anything, age plays a larger part in willingness, motivation, and ablilities to exercise as much as in years past. Some of those people who have been exercising, and maybe even a lot--they might lose more but that's more from exercise than food intake. Hcg seems to work for all ages and sizes. Thank goodness. Good luck to you, there is a July thread for those on P2 also, a lot of us that are active on threads, read most of the active threads and hope the best for you.

    Hi Dubbles,

    Thank you! Your progress definitely makes me feel better about the prospects. The first round I did, I was in my mid-late 30s. Came off easy. Because the detox was so hard on my body, though, I was tired and unable to exercise the first round. As I lost and cleaned up, I was able to add that in, and felt really good. I have since tried to do some, but not to over-do it, at least not while being in P2. At times, I found that strenuous exercise actually ended up setting my progress back if my body was having to work too hard. At the same time, since about 44-45, I have noticed that maintaining muscle mass is harder and I need to really be more conscientious about that. Are you doing other things in addition to diet... exercise, anything?

    Jenny, I do a few floor stretches, occassionally (and I mean occassionally, get on treadmill), since May--lots of gardening, yard work, and have started back doing some water exercises at pool. During January-April, not much physical exercise, just didn't feel like it. I don't get these huge spikes of energy on p2 that some people talk about. I also have a couple of knees that bother me, I get cortisone shots about every 4/5 months, but am finding the time between needs to be shorter and shorter. Next step will be some kind of gel they inject in the knee joint. Just have bone on bone in the left knee. So haven't done the exercise, even walking that I should do. I am hoping to up that this fall, it is just too hot, so for now water exercise is what I'm doing. This year I did start on the B12/Lipo shot that you give yourself. Take every 3 days, I don't know that it helped so much, as I didn't lose over what I lost in years past, without the B12/lipo shot. Other than that, just followed protocol. Ate fish till my husband said we were going to start growing gills. On P4 now, but haven't added much, except for more cheese in my salads, carrots in my salads with bacon crumbles and great dressing. When we go out, get a drink, but not much else added yet. Follow the protocol and you'll do great!
