    Hey, Joan - small world - are you ready for some nicer weather? It's gonna be a muddy sloppy mess when all this snow melts! Best of luck on your continued HCG journey!

    Hey - "JustJoan" - your name makes me giggle, makes me remember the 80s movie "Romancing the Stone" - that is what the drug lord who liked romance novels kept calling Kathleen Turner's character when they were flying around in his "Lil' Mule" trying to get away from the federales.... It's funny how something triggers a memory from 20 years ago.....

    Congrats on your half way mark too! I'm at my lowest weight in probably 15 - 20 years. My goal is 152 which would be around high school weight back in way long time ago...1979. LOL Who knows...maybe then I'll want to go lower.
  7. I KNOW!!! And this morning I hit 170 which I haven't seen for probably 6 years! My goal is 150. Thanks for the message!

    Yayy! Your halfway there! Congrats! :0)
  9. Hi justjoan i was reading one of your posts and you were talking about "baking" an apple and the cinnamon "sugar" dip you were putting on it how do you bake it and how do you make the cinnamon sugar? if you dont mind me asking of course.
  10. there are clinics here and there who let people do longer rounds, so others have experimented with it. i think it really depends on the individual, how healthy they are, how many rounds they are going to need to do, etc. I myself have done a couple of longer rounds and have not had any immunity problems- in fact, even though my daily average was a bit lower (i was also eating more protein at times due to extreme weakness), i stabilized a little better on those rounds.

Well.............I'm back!

by justjoan060 on August 30th, 2012 at 06:22 PM
It's been quite a year! I filed for divorce on 12/28/11 and it's still not final, so.......enough said! Also, lost my relationship with who I thought was my best friend which has actually been harder emotionally. (comfort eating to the max!.). Also, I injured my left knee somehow so wasn't as active this summer until I got it scoped in July and hoped that would do the trick. It felt great for a couple of weeks, then has slowly come back. I was hoping to take some gained back weight off by exercising,

Day 2 of LR/P3

by justjoan060 on May 13th, 2012 at 06:58 AM
I'm down 1.4 after my first day of LR which is great! Wasn't sure if I would gain on it right away. I'm not going to worry about stabilizing - hopefully I'll lose more - because I plan to eat paleo/primal from here on out and think I'll get to my optimal, healthy weight that way. That's just my decision for my situation. I know I'm on an hcg blog, but also know people are starting to get curious about the leptin reset. I honestly feel like deciding to do this last round of hcg purposely led

2 days post drops

by justjoan060 on May 11th, 2012 at 06:56 AM
I stopped taking hcg on Tuesday morning, so I'm two days after. Up about .4 this morning, but I had a few tortilla chips last night and 3 hard boiled eggs yesterday, chicken so who knows? I'm really tired of depriving my body right now and can't wait to start LR Sunday morning. Saturday I'm going to just add more food in - more meat, probably a mixed salad. I also bought some baking chocolate and the last couple of nights had 1/2 oz (1/2 square?), dipping it in sweetener and gnawing on it. Better

Stop a day early?

by justjoan060 on May 9th, 2012 at 07:27 AM
I wonder if stopping my 23 day round one day early would be the end of the world?? I dropped 1.2 yesterday, but am stalled again today. It's probably going to boil down to like 1 lb difference maybe. It's been really, really hard for me the last few days. I'm just craving some decent food so bad, maybe my body's crying out! I have almost EVERYTHING already bought for the LR except fresh produce and eggs. A bunch of meat in the freezer, dark chocolate.........mmmmmm. If I stop with this morning's

Down 1.2 this morning after another two day stall!! YAY! I'm almost done with P2, so want to eek out every pound I can! So far, I've lost 15 pounds in a 23 day round - not bad! I've been getting off weight I gained back comfort eating. No fault of hcg diet! Have a blessed day everybody!
