Thanks much, Leez. I had relief FINALLY this am. Lost 1.2 lbs and am down 7.4 after 14 days...averaging .49/day, so that's better than I thought. I'm just used to more regular losses every morning. Maybe this coming 3rd week will be more like the 'good ol days of hcg'. I'm going to up my magnesium again tonight and have a cup of Smooth Move, together with the vitamin C. Part of it may be that I'm working for the first time in a year....up at 3:45am, commuting for 1.5 hours...working hard for 10, then another commute home. It's more than I'm used to and could qualify as exercise.
