Catching up on HCG progress

It has been a long time since I've checked in. I moved from Chicago to Denver at the end of July and have been on a break from HCG since mid July. I just needed life to normalize a bit before starting up again. I have a project for work that has me traveling A LOT but the craziness has become the new normal so I felt ready to start again.

So between round one and two I lost 53 pounds. If I can give anyone a piece of advice from what I've been through so far it is To stick to your P3 with no cheating. I was in Poland during the last week of P3 and you try eating no carbs in Poland! I paid the price for it. I had a terrible time stabilizing my second round and ended up 8 pounds over my last dosage weight (LDW). Boo. My first round I followed protocol to the letter, didn't cheat, and stabilized 1lb under LDW. if you can fight the mental and emotional battles that put the weight on in the first place and stick to protocol you will be amazed at how you can stabilize. If not, it is like any other diet where you try where you put it back on.

So I ended my last round at 196.8 I started my round three on 10/8/11 at 206.8 (that is after loading for 2 days so I gained some weight during load). It is discouraging to re-lose weight but I learned a lot about the diet, my eating issues and how to do it better for round 3. I will be traveling almost the whole time so I won't know how I am doing very often. I hope to finish my 30 day round with a minimum of 20 pounds lost but will do my best and be happy with where end up (or at least try). So far so good. I have been on the road the entire week of this round and won't be home to weigh for another 6 days.

I feel mentally stronger this round. I had lots of time to adjust to my new size and the changes that come with that. I will write more in that later but bottom line is that people treat you differently she you are closer to normal weight. Some of that has been very difficult. Along with the difficulty is also a lot of positives. I feel better, I am much more aware of how my body reacts to different foods, I feel more confident and lively. I feel like I laugh more. I take more pride in getting ready in the morning and don't feel like fading in to the background quite as much as I did...to be continued.....

HCG Round 2 - Getting Ready

I'm mentally preparing for my next round. I'm excited. I learned a lot in the break I took but am ready to start losing again!!!

I start loading this weekend. That is where you take the HCG hormone and eat as much good fats and protein as you can so that you have some reserves handy for the first few days of the diet so you are not hungry. I wish I would have loaded while I was in TX but I forgot my hormone on my trip so I'm detoxing a bit from my trip (I ate HORRIBLY) and then I'll do a 45 day round starting Saturday.

I'm hoping to have a good round and lose 30-35 lb but I'll shoot for 20lb since the average for women is .5lb/day and Round 2 is supposed to be the hardest.

OK, not a great update but I haven't written here in so long I thought I would stop in.

P3D7 - hoping for the best

I've had a hard time maintaining weight since coming off the HCG. i went up 4 pounds from my last dosage weight and did a steak day. I was also on TOM (time of month) and I'm sure that made a difference. Anyway...went down the next day 3.8 lb so I am just a pound above LDW now...this morning it looked like I was up a pound again but turns out I just needed a bit more rest. I weighed at 5:30, went back to bed and by 7:30 my weight was the same as the day before...I'd had a late dinner so I'm sure it was just not enough digestion or something.

My bloggie camera came in today so I'm super excited...I'll be blogging on it soon. Hooray!!!!!!!!!!
