My breakfast yesterday. It was good… But not sure what caused my stall today, was either this, or dinner. For dinner I had 2 turkey burgers and cherry tomatoes… Yeah, I know… Not on protocol.
So… Yeah. I stalled today, no loss, no gain. Won’t pretend I’m not a little disappointed, but it is what it is and it happens. I don’t get discouraged… I just move forward.
Day 7 weigh in ~ 168 (-1.4 lbs from lowest weight of 169.4) (-5 lbs from R4 Starting weight of 173) (-54.4 lbs From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-94.2 total lbs from highest at 262.2)
Weight loss is a little slower then usual… But I expected this. It’s also “that time of the month” so…. Yeeeeah.
Thus far, it has been the easiest round. I’m not feeling at all deprived or hungry. I got so busy yesterday I forgot to cook dinner, so I just had an apple and a melba toast and called it a night.
Day 33 weigh in ~ 169.8 (-.6 lbs from previous day) (-19.4 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (-52.6 lbs From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-92.4 total lbs from highest at 262.2)
With only 3 days left, this is nice to see.
When I first started hCG 6 months ago (in November 2010) I got a lot of negative feedback on my decision to go drastic with this particular choice. I had a hard time defending myself, because quite frankly… such a drastic calorie reduction seems crazy… I KNOW! I would get stories of people who have done this diet and were unsuccessful, or gone right off it for a week or so and gained all their weight back. I listened… I took it all in… I worried this was going to happen to me… and I did it anyways. And I’m SO glad I did. People are taking notice of my success and some of those people who were bad mouthing it, now are trying or thinking about trying it for themselves. Looking at the scale sit at 169.8 brings a tear to my eye… it’s a wonderful feeling of success. In some of my darkest moments I’ve wished for moments like this… but never really thought they would happen to me. I thought I was destined to sit in the 200’s for the remaining of my days…
I feel it’s my job to tell you these things…I want you to be successful like me. If I can do it… YOU CAN DO IT! It’s just a matter of committing yourself to what ever it is you decide to do. hCG may not be for everyone, but for some it just may be the miracle you have been looking for. For me… it is.
Day 32 weigh in ~ 170.4 (-.2 lbs from previous day) (-18.8 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (-52 lbs From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-91.8 total lbs from highest at 262.2)
.2? POINT TWO? Really?!?!
*cover your ears guys* My period is about to start in two days, *okay you can uncover them now* So I hope this isn’t it for me this round. If it is, I am okay with that… but I really hope it’s not. I wanted to be out of the 170’s by the end of the round. One last push for victory Amber.
Only 4 days remaining on Phase 2… let the countdown begin :D
Day 30 weigh in ~ 171.4 (-.8 lbs from previous day) (-17.8 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (-51 lbs From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-90.8 total lbs from highest at 262.2)
Apple days never let me down :)
Today WOULD have been my last day… but I extended it 6 days so 6 days to go! Next Tuesday I get to eat semi-normal again! So excited for that… :))
I am finally okay with my body size. Yes, I can stand to still lose weight, no, I’m not perfect… no I’m not to my goal… but I feel good about myself. I can fit into “regular” size clothing. Large instead of Xtra Large. Regular pants, instead of Plus Size pants. I’m getting TONS of compliments from people I haven’t seen in a while, and that feels great.
I think this diet has been a God Send for me, and I hope anyone who tries it finds the same results I have.
Day 20 weigh in ~ 175 (-1.2 lbs from previous day) (-14.2 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-47.4 lbs) From highest at 262.2 (-87.2 total lbs)
Half way through the 170’s… With 16 days left…
I checked my BMI today and I am at 31. (still considered in the obese category) BUT at 169 I will no longer be in that category and will move to the “overweight” level… That will be exciting :)
I said it yesterday, and will say it again today for reaffirmation…. Water (well liquids) is making all the difference with my weight loss….
Day 17 weigh in ~ 177.2 (-.8 lbs from previous day) (-12 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-45.2 lbs) From highest at 262.2 (-85 total lbs)
Let’s keep the momentum going! Only 19 days left on VLCD Phase 1… sounds like a lot, but it will come quickly. 8 pounds left to hit this round’s goal of 20 pounds.. I sure hope I can get there. This round has been a little slower on the weight loss front. Maybe that’s because my body is getting used to this process. I am supposed to add a week to my maintain Phase 4 after each round. I didn’t, and that may have caused this stall, your body just get’s used to it.
Day 16 weigh in ~ 178 (-0 lbs from previous day) (-11.2 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-44.4 lbs) From highest at 262.2 (-84.2 total lbs)
Not sure what my body is doing… But I don’t like it. So many thoughts as to why my body isn’t releasing this weight.
Whatever it is… My body needs to start cooperating with my efforts…. Now.
Day 13 weigh in ~ 179.2 (+.2 lbs from previous day) (-10 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-43.2 lbs) From highest at 262.2 (-83 total lbs)
Day 14 weigh in ~ 179 (-.2 lbs from previous day) (-10.2 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-43.4 lbs) From highest at 262.2 (-83.2 total lbs)

Yep… I’ve hit it. So now it’s time to fix it (or attempt to do so). “How?” You ask…. The dreaded apple day. I hate it… But it’s a necessary evil in this diet. So…. I eat an apple every 2-3 hours beginning at noon, with only a small amount of water to quench your thirst if needed (you get water from the apples) needless to say I will be sick of apples by the end of the day.
Why an apple day?: wow, you are full of questions aren’t ya?
The apple day stimulates your body to eliminate the retention of liquids which may be the influencing factor of your scale not budging. The weight loss usually continues when going back to the 500 calorie a day diet… And water retention typically does not return.
here’s hoping for a better tomorrow. :D
Day 12 weigh in ~ 179.2 (+.2 lbs from previous day) (-10 lbs from R3 Starting weight of 189.2) (From beginning 1st round at 222.4 (-43.2 lbs) From highest at 262.2 (-83 total lbs)
small gain. I hate these days, but I know they are bound to happen. I can deal with it and stay focused… that’s what’s important.
When I first started my whole weight loss journey back in January of 2008 at 262.2 pounds, one of my several reasons I wanted to lose weight was so that I didn’t have to obsess about weight or food anymore. I have come to the realization that this is never going to happen. No matter how thin I become, my weight will always be at the for-front of my mind. I will always obsess about what is going into my mouth. (no dirty thoughts ;)
When I was 262 pounds, I obsessed about losing weight. I am now at 179 pounds and obsess about getting to goal. When I get to goal… I will obsess about staying there. The scale will always be my husband, we will have our good times, and our bad.. but he will always live in my house even if I wish he would leave. I will see him everyday, and step all over him until he tells me what I want to hear. We are companions for life, I have accepted that.
I am genetically proportioned to have large thighs, wide hips, and a big butt… I’ve learned to accept it. Even if I get to my goal of 125-140 pounds… this will always be the case.
