I ended the round with a bang at 0.8lbs lost.
Lunch: 1/2c Non-Fat Cottage Cheese w/ 1/2 cucumber, 1 Jazz Apple & 1 Grissini
Dinner: Steak w/ Tomato Basil Sauce, 1/2 Grapefruit & 1 Grissini
4+ liters water
My husband and I received the very sad news that his mother is passing away. She’s been fighting cancer for 12 years and hasn’t been doing well for a while so, we knew it was coming, but it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with. She is up in Canada and his step father has said there won’t be any services for her at her request. It’s going to be a difficult day at work not knowing what’s going on. I also didn’t get much sleep last night as we didn’t get the call until we were laying down to sleep.
I’m very glad to be done with this round. It would have been nice if I’d lost a bit more weight but I’m happy with having reached 51.2lbs lost overall. Now it’s time to make it through the VLCD days and get to eatting some REAL food.
Yup, that’s right… I gained 0.2lbs yesterday… GRRRRRRRRR!
Lunch: 1/2c nonfat cottage cheese w/ 1/2 cucumber, 1 Orange & 1 Grissini
Dinner: 100g Tilapia w/ sauteed cabbage, 3 strawberries & 1 Grissini
So, all day yesterday I avoided temptation… had to go out to eat with my family at Mighty Fine burger… watched everyone scarfing on burgers and fries and potato chips and I didn’t eat any… not even one little bite… NOTHING! And today I wake up to a 0.2lb gain. I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that today is my last dose day. Soon I’ll be able to get onto eatting normal food again and stop feeling deprived all the time. I know that days where I don’t lose I feel annoyed but gaining is another thing altogether. I guess the only thing I can think of is that I didn’t drink enough… but I still drank quite a bit… I wanna cry… *sigh* oh well… I made it to my 50lb loss overall and that’s nothing to be upset about. Hopefully I’ll drop a little again today and over the next several days of VLCD so that I don’t have to feel guilty about eatting at the potluck on Friday… although I’m sure I probably won’t anyways… cest la vie!
Have a good Monday!
I dropped another 0.8lb today which puts me 0.6lbs past my goal!! I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it!!!
Lunch: 1/2c Cottage Cheese w/ 1/2 cucumber, 1 Jonagold Apple
Afternoon Snack: 1 Melba Toast
Dinner: Steak w/ Tomato Basil sauce, 1 Orange & 1 Melba Toast
I am so excited to be rid of 50lbs in just 3 months!! Anyone who says the HCG protocol is a sham should just kiss my ever shrinking hiney! Off to church and spending time with mom… I’ll post updated pics tomorrow.
I dropped an awesome 1.2lbs today which puts me only 0.2lbs from my goal!
Lunch: 1/2c Cottage Cheese w/ 1/2 cucumber, 1 Jonagold apple & 1 Grissini
Dinner: Chicken Tomato Basil Soup w/ 1 Orange & 1 Grissini
I’m super excited to be so close to my goal so far ahead of schedule. If I keep this up I may get really close to the 55 mark and that would be JUST AWESOME! Going to spend the day with my mom, sister and family so, I’m off… hope everyone has a great day. I’ll post pictures later.
I ended up dropping 0.4lbs today. Hoping it isn’t the cottage cheese.
Lunch: 1/2c Non-fat Cottage Cheese w/ 1/2 cucumber, 1 Jonagold apple & 1 Grissini
Dinner: Chicken Tomato and Basil soup w/ 1 Orange & 1 Grissini
5+ liters water
So, I’m really peeved at YouTube right now. Yesterday I posted a video of me mixing HCG to show people how to do that… mind you there are THOUSANDS of videos like this on YouTube and hundreds more of people actually showing you HOW to inject yourself. Some reported my video as having inappropriate content and YouTube reviewed my video and AGREED with them!!! They flagged my account with a “warning strike” and said that if I should have any further community violations in the next 6 months my account could be terminated. I appealed the decision and they came back again saying that they held to their original decision but refused to tell me how the video had inappropriate content… Yeah, I’m a little upset… *grrrrrrrrr*
Onto nicer things I guess… It’s Friday… and I only have 3 more dosage days after today. YAY! I know I’ve been saying this for a week but I’m so ready for normal food and now that I’m so close to my goal it’s making it more and more difficult to hang on. I know I’ll be fine though. In all honesty our finances are really benefiting from my HCG diet right now and going back to “regular” food means spending more money… 😦 I sure hope my husband gets better soon or that something happens to better our financial situation or we may be in trouble… please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
Good morning!! I released a glorious 1.2lbs today which means that not only can I have cottage cheese but my body LOVES it!
Breakfast: Water (Yes, I’ve decided that the Stevia just wasn’t working well for me on P2 and the thought of unsweetened hot tea is nauseating)
Lunch: 1/2c Nonfat Cottage Cheese w/ 1/2 cucumber (peeled), 1 Jonagold apple, & 1 Grissini
Dinner: French Onion Soup w/ 1 Orange & 1 Grissini
5+ liters of water
So, it seems, the cottage cheese experiment was a success. I absolutely LOVED it and I have a feeling that it will allow me to finish out the remainder of this round in style so to speak. With today’s release I’m only 1.8lbs away from my goal and at this rate I should hit that well before Monday but, I’m going to finish out the round through Monday as originally stated regardless. Maybe then I’ll get closer to 55lbs and I will hopefully drop another 5 in P3/P4 and I’ll actually hit my 60lb goal. THAT WOULD ROCK! I know I’m totally getting ahead of myself I’m just super excited right now. I can even eat salads with cottage cheese because it would work like a dressing… throw in some granny smith apples and call it a day. YUM! I’ll be eatting the cottage cheese again today so, we’ll see if the trend continues. I sure hope so because it was DEEEEEE-lish!
It wasn’t as big a number as yesterday but, I’m very happy with my 0.6lb loss this morning! 🙂
Breakfast: Water (No tea again, testing to see if I’m having a reaction to Stevia)
Lunch: Chicken Tomato Basil Soup w/ 1 Jonagold Apple, & 1 Grissini
Dinner: French Onion Soup w/ 1 Orange & 1 Grissini
4 liters of water
I don’t have much time this morning as I’m going in early to work because my mom is coming in from Cali today! YAY!! This will be the first time she’s seen me since I’ve dropped the total of my 47lbs. I’m so excited as she’s the one that introduced me to the protocol. 🙂 I’ll be trying something else today as I’ll be at the airport when I need to eat lunch so, I’ll be eatting one of the approved meat substitutes (cottage cheese) since I won’t be able to warm anything up. I’m hoping it doesn’t derail my losses as I would REALLY love to be able to eat something different… and the dairy would be a nice switch for sure.
HAPPY HUMP DAY!
