Thread: April 2017 Loaders - Spring Shrinkers

    Hi UpNorthMom! Thanks for the welcome After my second pregnancy I lost most of the weight that I wanted while I was breastfeeding my son. As soon as that stopped the weight just piled on. I weigh as much as I did when I was 9 months pregnant! I'm tired of the struggle to fit into clothes and since it worked so well last time, I figured I'd give it another go. I used the hcg 1234 Drops last time but found out (the hard way) that that brand no longer has HCG in it. A lot has changed since I did this in 2012. I'm now using AnuMed and I'm feeling ok. I know the first week will be rough but I know I can do it! I need to! I'm so glad I found support here too

    I've had a problem my whole life with emotional eating which ultimately lead me to not knowing if I'm eating because I'm hungry or because I'm stressed. My 2012 round got me back on track and was almost like hitting my reset button. I'm hoping to do that again!

    Hi again! I have only used SQ injections for p2. I have a gal that I get my prefilled shots from since my first round in 2011. She also puts B12 in them, which I like, plus I take an additional sublingual B12 for energy. I used to be so scared to take my usual supplements on my first few rounds and really suffered in previous rounds because of it. I chose the hcg 2.0 protocol because it removes the fruit from the protocol, but allows a lot more protein...which I thrive on and actually lose better on. You can find dr. zach laboube's book on Amazon, which I bought about a week into this round, but started out by watching an interview with him on youtube. I was sold! Which is funny, because I started in 2011 such a rigid follower of Dr. Simeons OP...now I am a total convert to Dr. laboube's protocol. It just works for me .

    It's funny you mention losing weight with breastfeeding, lol! I am one of those weird ones that gained only 16-20 pounds in my three pregnancies (they were all 8 & 9lb babies!), but gained weight with breastfeeding! go figure! I envied women that lost weight by nursing. Then again...I got my period within 4wks of giving birth even while nursing as well. Lucky me .

    And you are right...nothing gets you to be honest about how we truly view food until p2 comes along. Thats why I try to do a short round every year, as kind of "boot camp & reset". It really keeps the emotional eating "slippery slope" in check. For me at least.

    Well...hope you are getting into the groove of things!

    Round 1-Start weight in 2011 was 142lbs.
    Round 8-just as annual cleanup round 2017
    R8--Goal to get to 120, maintain at 123lbs.

    Just popping in quickly to update. I'm on R1P2D21 and I'm down 14.1 lbs.
    had a couple of gain days but my Natropath has altered my dose so hopefully I'm back on track now.
    Looks like some great things happening in here for everyone, thanks for all the info, encouragement and enthusiasm, it's most appreciated.

    I'm on round 2, day 30. Down 12 pounds. Geesh, it's been like pulling teeth this round to get the scale to move. Going for 40 days so I hope I can squeeze off a few more pounds before it's over. Wishing everyone continued success.

    Kaye, you are doing great, you just don't have as much fat to lose. At least that is what I tell myself. It is 12 heavy pounds you would not have lost had you not done this round. Celebrate!

    Maybe try ditching the fruits, up your protein & drink ACV water :)

    Wow! 30days is a huge accomplishment! And I agree with LULU, imagine that 12 pounds as a big glob of yellow nasty fat on a scale. Pretty impressive! How else could we have ever had the chance to melt off that kind of waste in such a short period of time.

    I don't know what protocol of HCG you are doing, but have you thought of removing both fruits from your day and increasing protein? It's the ONLY way I have bigger daily losses. Being in constant ketosis (without the fruit) helps me burn the fat 24/7 as apposed to short bursts in and out of ketosis due to the fruits. And the extra protein just helps my energy levels.
    ALSO!!!! If you aren't already...consider chugging huge amounts of water with a tablespoon of ACV in it all day long. It really helps you dump water weight and helps with digestion big time.

    Good luck!

    Hang on Kaye!!! Keep looking forward to your goal. Just think about where those 12 pounds were that they no longer are. (((✝️)))
