R1 P2 D21-Morning (310.6)


So, today is the first day that I didn’t lose any weight. Not only did I not lose anything, I actually gained 0.4lbs… there are SEVERAL possible culprits and I’m going to work on naming them all. Firstly and what I believe is most responsible, I didn’t drink nearly enough water yesterday. I was cleaning the house and organizing our office for the new puppy and I didn’t have water with me all the time to remind me to drink (increased activity being another possible reason). Secondly, I mixed a new bottle of HCG yesterday morning… not sure if it takes a bit to fully “mature” but I took my first dose right after mixing. Thirdly, I had run out of fruit in the morning and so I didn’t have fruit with my lunch as I always do. Fourthly, I did all my grocery shopping for the week and portioned out all my meat yesterday which included cutting all the fat off my meats which meant that I directly handled fat for a good hour yesterday afternoon before grocery shopping. Fifthly and finally, I was behind on my birth control and had been taking 2 pills a day for several days which I believe can cause water retention. Although I gained 0.4lbs I did not see an increase in inches at all. I’m still very happy with my losses and when I went to bed last night after thinking of everything that deviated from my norm I was expecting something like this. By request I’ll start posting my menus although I’m not sure that people would want to know from yesterday… lol

Morning: 1 large cup Mint Medley Tea by Bigelow w/ 10 drops Sweet Leaf Clear Stevia

Lunch: 100g pounded chicken breast & 1-2c Shredded Cabbage cooked in water w/ 1 Grissini

Dinner: French Onion soup with Round Steak, 1 Grissini & 1 small Jonagold Apple

This is a log of my weight loss journey on HCG. I started this journey the heaviest I’ve ever been… so much so that my weight wouldn’t even register on a Weight Watchers scale. After my 2 days of loading I hit a high of 335.8lbs. I have more than 160lbs to lose to reach my goal and it will be a long time coming. Please feel free to offer encouragement and tips to help me stay motivated as I lose my way to 175! I hope this page will serve as an encouragement to others who are also on their own weight loss journey. God Bless you in your endeavors!

  1. Handling the fat can definitely affect your weight. Next time, wear rubber gloves. It’s a little harder to handle but worth it!
    Hang in there!
