Thread: When the HCG Protocol becomes an obsession

  1. #61
    I go through this little mental exercise every now and then, to help me put something in perspective. I imagine that I've got 24 hours to live, and then ask myself "did [this issue] have a greater or lesser, positive or negative impact on my life so far? will it help to define me in the end?" Being thinner will make each day of my life more positive, because the thinner, healthier me can keep up with my grandkids, can swim and hike with my friends, can volunteer to walk all those dogs at the shelter, and smiles more at everyone. The fatter, tired, frumpy me passes up chances to get out and do active things, passes on chances to reconnect with old friends because I'm worried what they'll think of my size, spends more time and money on doctors and prescriptions. The people that love me, still love me no matter my size, but the memories we make (which is all they'll be left with) those memories will be better with me being more active and feeling better.

    It's not just us women that obsess with the way we look. Even my hubby always asks me if he looks like he's fat or too thin,etc. I think he looks great.

    Mine is the same way, and he looks awesome, ESPECIALLY for his age. he's 52 and seriously built. he looks better than most 20 yr olds and he knows it, yet he still asks and worries about it.

    Hello Raggedyann. that is one of my main questions with HCG. This is my 2nd round and I didnt lose at much as I would like (14 lbs) Which is good, but I am like your husband who wants to lose 10 more lbs, and I work out before I started HCG and continute to do so with phase 3. Has he had no luck losing any weight then? Would I have to do another round to get rid of the 10?

    But when you have 6lbs to go, come on, really? Why not just do the treadmill or something? I don't get it.

    When I had my 2nd and 3rd kids, I did the treadmill, cut out junk period and lost it all without any problems. Mind you after one kid I lost 40lbs doing this. The other 25lbs. I didn't even know about hcg back then. It wasn't easy, but I did it.

    This time around the weight was really hard to lose considering I gained it from steroids from my pneumonia and surgeries from my car accident and the long term physical therapy I was doing. It wasn't as easy to lose, as a matter of fact I kept fluctuating by 5lbs all the time. So my bff told me about this before I got pregnant. Wanted to do my research and I did. Decided after the baby to do it. Have lost 34lbs since May of last year and I think I look great at this weight.

    I don't get wanting to look like a stick, I use too and I was teased or told to gain weight or I looked sick and unhealthy. Even my wedding pics look horrible bc I was so thin I looked anorexic. And I was 111 when I got married 10 years ago. I LOVE my curves.

    I know we are all different, I'm surely no exception. But it just seems like people are going to take advantage of this protocol and God forbid, something horrible happen giving this diet a bad rap and making it even more difficult to obtain if the FDA tries to intervene.
    My feelings are pretty much opposite on this subject. I spent a whole year dieting and excersising and lost 41 pounds on my own. Then I hit a stall, and could not lose the last 20 pounds that I know I need to lose. My back and hips are bad, and the doctor told me it would help them alot to lose. I am 5'3 inches and started out last June 5th at 179 pounds. Obese on the BMI calcualtor. I spent 9 months eating 900 calories a day and eating 2 times a day, and excersising 3-6 times a week. I could not lose the last of the weight for 3 months not a single pound.

    Sure DR S would not of helped me probably at my 138 weight when I started this, but I really worked hard on my own, and did the best I could. Now I found this to help me with the rest of the way. And I should feel bad about doing it? I do not think so.


    Started at 179 (5'3") June 5th 2010. Lost 40 pounds eating no sugar, flour, wheat, rice, or dairy, and eating 2 times a day breakfast and lunch. Stalled at 138 for 4 months then decided to do HCG.

    julie you are having incredible losses!

    There are so many people here who have not lost weight on very restricted calorie diets...and then they find hcg, and it's like it unlocks that door.

    I noticed you switched from hhcg to injections. What was your reason for that? Did you notice a difference in losses after you switched?

    I was dizzy on HHCG, and thirsty, and just felt out of wack. I changed to HCG, and all of that went away. Both I didn't have hunger on. Just the way i feel on it is different. Since changing I have had much better shaping too, might be a coincidence in timing, but I definately notice it.
