    Thank you! Yeah, I'm finally starting to feel like me again. For a couple of months after I had my son (Sept. 2010), I was depressed and just didn't feel like I was me anymore. Partially because of the weight I had put on, but also because of all the time I completely dedicated to taking care of him... which I wanted to do, but in the process forgot a major part of myself. Now that I'm losing the weight, I can feel me coming back again and wanting to do things that I have let go for awhile. Thankfully, my son is a very good baby and incorporating him into my life and still remaining who I am has been fairly easy. I just didn't know how to do it at first. It's amazing what losing weight can do for someone! Kudos to you on starting to see it in yourself too. It's nice to notice yourself, but it's nice when others notice too, huh? :-)
  5. Wasn't sure how old your son was, so you are limited. Just hang in there. I noticed you & I are at almost the same wgt w/a similar goal. I find it more encouraing to find other women who are similar to me in wgt & goal, even if they started much heavier. Those just starting (heavier than me) are seeing tremendous losses each day. Great for them, but found it discouraging because I thought I should be doing better. My mind has taken a ride these two weeks for sure! But I've calmed down, and realized any loss is a good one. I still have two days to go before I hit the two week mark on VLCD. I would love to see a 10 lb loss by then. I'm at eight now, so maybe.....???

    You are brave to do injections, but then again, you're in nursing. I don't think I could give myself shots, and the drops seem to be working for me.

    I'm following your progress -- stick with it!! Do this for yourself!! And do it for your son; he needs you around to help him with HIS children.
  6. Thank you so much for the encouragement!!! I do volunteer not but only have one shift a week and it's on Saturday because when I start school, that's about all I can do. I can't do much more because I am in charge of watching my 2 year old son. It sucks but it's what I've been given so I am going to try injections and hope they can make it a bit easier on me. We'll see!!!

It's Been SEVEN YEARS...

by MattsMom17 on March 27th, 2018 at 12:59 PM
So it's been SEVEN YEARS since I did the hcg diet - almost exactly to the day. I thought I'd post to encourage others that the hcg journey does not end at the end of P4. It is a lifestyle change to eat healthy, to be mindful of what you eat, and how much you eat. I learned a lot about food, metabolism, and making healthy choices the first time around in 2011.

You're probably asking, "So did you keep the weight off?" The answer is yes, for the most part. I have never "dieted"

FFF Day Success

by MattsMom17 on June 8th, 2011 at 05:40 PM
Thanks to MeOnHCG, Lawgal, and Tate for your comments yesterday. I find encouragement everytime I'm on (in?) this forum. Although I must admit that Me's comment that the FFF day did not work for her had me quaking in my boots a bit and scared to weigh this morning.

Yesterday I did the FFF day, with strawberries. I managed to CHOKE down 27 ounces out of the 32. I just could not bring myself to eat any more. Now, don't get me wrong, I love Fage yogurt (see yesterday's post), but

It's been a MONTH??

by MattsMom17 on June 6th, 2011 at 05:50 PM
Wow, I just realized it's been a month since my last blog entry. There has been so much going on at work, and home, and stuff in the evenings and weekends (not normally this busy) that it's slipped my mind. I've been reading blog posts, and comments, but just not taken the time to check in myself.

Sad to report that I think I need a correction day. I've been out of P4 for over a month, and while my weight has flucuated some, I'm finding that the losses after the gains aren't keeping

Stuff and other stuff

by MattsMom17 on May 3rd, 2011 at 12:07 PM
Weird, but I don't have much to share...I'm usually quite prolific (like I need to mention it at all).

Since beginning P4, I've dabbled in adding starches and have definitely added sugar - just not a lot each day. Every day I've indulged in two or three chocolate Easer eggs (those are gone now), a few jelly beans, and even Milky Way single bites (two). I've tried sweet potato, whole wheat bread, skim milk, pears, honey in greek yogurt (last night), and other starches or foods with

I have a new love, and his name is....Smuckers PB.

by MattsMom17 on April 25th, 2011 at 07:35 PM
I finally got brave over the weekend and tried Smuckers natural peanut butter. I've eaten NPB in the past, but this was especially wonderful, having had a PB fast for over two months! It was delightful with my apple slices. And - BONUS - no weight gain!! So I have enjoyed a little each day.

I went up .4 a few days ago, so am right at LDW. Went up due to lack of, um, bathroom activity, and it's still hanging on. That's okay though -- still working through the potty issue too,
