Hi! I'm Mari and this is my second round of HCG! I finished my first round last May losing 11 pounds after plateauing for ages on Weight Watchers. I maintained 2 pounds below my LDW with a low carb lifestlye, and I lost my last 15 pounds in January 2013!

I had a rough first round, with a lot of cheating, which definitely impacted my losses, but this past year taught me so much about self control, healthy eating and exercise.

I switched from hHCG to pellets, and I'm so excited to stabilize at my new healthy weight! I did a perfect-on-protocol round this time, and stabilization has been so much easier so far!

I'm doing a slightly atypical P3 from what I've seen people do on the boards, and its working wonderfully. My biggest goal this round was to phase out of the super low carb lifestyle, and begin a new, well rounded and nutritionally balanced way of eating! Check out my blog to see what I'm doing and check out my progress!

Check-In #2: I'm Back!

by SkinnyMari on February 19th, 2013 at 01:12 PM
Hello Everyone!

I'm back, and still doing well! Today is P3 Day 12 for me, I'm almost half-way through and stabilizing! Sorry its been so long since my last update, but life catches up with us sometimes.

I've been maintaining within about 0.2 below to 0.6 above my LDW of 116.4...
...and dealing with some digestive troubles along the way. I've always had a bit of a slow digestive system, so I had a little bit of trouble readjusting to the bulk of food during

P3 Day 2: First Check In!

by SkinnyMari on February 9th, 2013 at 02:02 PM
Hello My Fellow HCG-ers!

Today is Day 2 of P3, and things have been going well so far! I've been keeping in my apple, and not going as high in fat as many typically do. For P3, I'm going to be tracking my Calories and Nutrients in order to monitor what is working best, and to make sure that I'm building a well rounded way of eating that will make my transition into P4 and beyond as easy and natural as possible. I'm not necessarily going to be limiting them, but I am going to aiming

Ending My Last Round: A New Beginning!

by SkinnyMari on February 6th, 2013 at 07:36 AM
Hello All!

Well, although I'm not at my original goal of 115, I decided that my morning dose of HCG was going to be my last, and that I will stabilize at 116.4 pounds!

I did a little bit of an exercise in self confidence yesterday. I've noticed that with HCG, the rapid loss of weight sometimes makes it hard for us to really see the changes in our bodies. With my last day approaching, I decided to really give my body a good hard look.

I went through old

Making Goals for the Future: What Do I Want in My Life and My "Diet?"

by SkinnyMari on February 4th, 2013 at 12:08 PM
Happy Monday Everyone!

Well, I'd like to start off by commending everyone who braved their SuperBowl parties and fought the temptations. I, for one, holed up at home like a big ol' chicken. Rather than watching the SuperBowl (not a huge football fan, but congrats to all you Raven's fans!), I used my time to do a little bit of thinking about what I've missed in my life since my first round, and what I would like to have, specifically, to be content with my eating habits for life.

ROUND TWO: First Round Mistakes and How I Plan to Do P3 Differently This Time

by SkinnyMari on February 3rd, 2013 at 09:59 AM
Hello All! Well, today is R2 VLCD 20, and I have 4 more days left on VLCD, 6 left until P3! With that in mind, I've been giving a lot of thought to what I did right/wrong last round, and what I'm going to do differently this round with that knowledge.

First, here are the 2 main things that I did wrong during my first P3:

#1. CHEAT! I am completely convinced that this was my biggest error in my first P3. Cheating in P2 is bad enough (and I did this alot in my first round!),
