    Slightly more senior? Wanna chat?

    Hi there,
    I'm just about to start another round and am looking for some gals or guys with a little more " worldly" experience to chat with....
    I'm 53 ( though in my head I am still in my thirties and I am constantly dismayed when my mirror shows me someone I don't want to recognize!). And I am experiencing the usual things that happen as one gets older....I need to wear glasses to read EVERYTHING ! And my skin is getting older ....and bits ache ( some days more than others) etc etc. a lot of my (relatively minor) problems are probably related to carrying too much weight for most of my life, that and being inherently lazy!
    But with each year that passes, I seem to be making more progress at changing into the person I want to be and HCG is helping me get there.
    I've done several rounds over th last 2 years, and am about to start yet another. This will be my first round using injections, it was nasal spray in the past. I'm a little nervous about injecting but am sure I will be fine. I am currently 86ish kilos ( sorry, but I am an Aussie!) and I really want to get below 80 this round. That still makes me overweight but it's a weight I can probably maintain without feeling totally deprived. I'm looking at going Primal with diet once I get done with this round.
    My stupid skin is quite dry enough already at the moment and I am a little concerned that doing without my oils and creams is really going to be bad this time. I have never taken enough care of my skin anyway, have way more lines and wrinkles than I think I ought to have, and after my last round, nicely sunken cheeks to add to my repertoire! Why is it that being fatter makes your face look younger.... It's so not fair!
    Anyway, I wasn't planning on making this a whining post/ thread....just a place where some of us who are a little older can try to support each other and offer suggestions or help when and if we can....
    So anyone else want to say hi?

    G day, I say hi, I am "vintage" lol, 52 have done hcg before and done well on it. I am almost to the end of 30 days, need another 3 lbs, a kilo or so. I live in the rain country, the NW, and am a slave to face sunblock, and sunhats, so when the weight comes off I look about 40,exept for the back is slowing me down. I never found that loitions slowed down loss, I am going for a deep tissue massage today, I am detoxing from everything and am very stiff. swearing I am going to live on soup for the next five days, then some p3 then I try paleo, which looks a lot like atkins, cheers

    Hi from California. I'm turning 52 in January. I just finished R1P2 and am still trying to figure out P3 (I'm on Day 2). I would like to lose another 5 lbs, but figure I'll do it during P4. I'm going to follow Grammy's lead and do the Fast Metabolism Diet for 28 days in P4. I feel - due to age and past dieting- my metabolism is shot. After that, I will follow a Paleo eating plan.

    Btw I hear you about fat loss on the face when dieting! Glad to say that, on hcg, I didn't experience that. I did have dry skin, but slathered on the Johnson's Baby Oil.

    Hi there, my new " age challenged" friends! Nice to meet you!

    SdBriere- I am going to get some baby oil, it might be my best option. Much as I love HCG, it seems to take fat from my face and legs first, my core is the last to go. And believe me, there is MORE then enough fat on my core! I'm hoping that doing injections might make a difference to where the fat drops off this time....we will see.

    Nice to see Grandma, Grammy and JKM too! I'm a little envious seeing that you guys are so close to goal weight! Even after this round, I'll be overweight, though admittedly, less so! Oh well.... We each have our journey and mine is not yours!

    Today and tomorrow I am still P3, then I can load....

    Have a lovely day, everyone!

    I am 60 but feel 30 as well. Actually after hCG and eating Paleo I feel healthier now than I ever have. Good to meet y'all.

    Ima- I only tried the injections, so I don't know if it makes a difference. I have noticed (on P3D3) my fat seems to be shifting! I have now lost 1/2" on my hips and each thigh (where I needed to lose), but my weight has stayed the same. Maybe the initial fat loss on your face will be replenished in P3? I'm sure Grammy would know!

    the oil can be an issue, for all it rains here the winter humidly is very low, and everyone gets dried out, I have had incredible luck with Neutrogena body oil, basic, a few drops covers everything and it works and I am not allegic to it.
    what is fast met diet? I still have about 17 lbs to go, I swear I will never get over 150 again and suffer the first 15 lb pants of shame.
    I will be out of p2 into p3 for dec then back in jan cheers

    Jkm - Dr S states in P&I that Johnson's baby oil is safe to use, which is why I did. I have no idea if it affected my weight loss. I certainly had enough 3-day stalls during my 28 days of P2.

    Like you, I swear I won't get over 150 again! I have never been that big, but I had "female surgery" last year, and the weight crept up on me. I have to fight to stay in my 130's - even more so now that I'm in my 50s.

    FYI The Fast Metabolism Diet is a book that uses a 28-day plan to reset your metabolism (which could be shot due to past diets, age, etc.). Grammy mentioned it in some posts (do a search of FMD), so I bought the book, got the iPhone app, and will start it during P4. I hope it works!

    SdBriere- actually, I think you are correct. My face has regained a little shape as I've gone through p3. Unfortunately my fat belly really does not want to go anywhere and re shaping has not happened there at all. That's why I am hoping the injections might have a better effect. I am sure Grammy has mentioned that re shaping seems better with injections.

    150 pounds ? Sigh....counts as an impossible dream for me. My goal for now is 170 pounds, a weight I have not seen since I was 30. Getting to that weight would make me ecstatically happy....anything less than 170 pounds would be.....well, like I said, unimaginable!

    One more day of P3 eating and then back to p2 ...can't wait, I love loading! LOL

    I hope the sun is shining on you, wherever you are in the world!

    I'm in N California and it's raining cats and dogs! Late fall/winter here always seems to bring a lot of rain. I guess you must be in the spring down under?

    Btw I found it best not to compare my weight loss goals to other people's. As long as I'm at a healthy weight for my height, body frame and age, who cares if someone weighs less? I have found the best weight for me is 135, and it was my weight in my 30s and 40s (I was really thin in my teens and 20s.) If your best weight is 170, great - that's all that matters.

    Good luck in your next round. I'm only on P3D4, but I hope this is my 1st and only hcg round.
