HCG? Anyone Have Any Personal Experience with It?

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I've been researching HCG, and wonder if any sparkers have had personal experience they can provide.

I haven't been blogging lately. Been tidal waved by sadness with the loss of my cousin who was like a sister to me. After a two-year battle with spreading cancer, she is gone. I am having a very hard time.

Wishing all a good day.

    Right now your body is dealing with a lot of stress. Be kind to yourself,
May the fond memories of your cousin help you.

    I'm so sorry about your cousin. emoticon

Did a lot of research on HCG last year and decided against trying it. The more research I do about weight loss, the more convinced I become that moderate exercise and sensible diet (even with looooong plateaus) are the healthiest way to go. Being consistent will make the difference.

Shutting out Sugar from My Life - Begone Satan! (smiling)

Monday, July 05, 2010

Sick and tired of dealing with sugar. It's been my nemesis. I've dealt with caffeine, and now I am determined to rid myself of the evil beast, sugar, once and for all.

I won't eliminate it from foods that already contain a small amount, but I'm talking about dessert, soda, etc. Zip, zilch, zero. Nada. NO MORE!

I've been off sugar before and, like caffeine, it's an amazingly different, healthy feeling. This is day three without it.

Wishing all a wonderful day.

    emoticon I don't buy stuff with sugar for home because I have a tendency to say ... have one cookie ... 20 times in one day.

When I want to have a dessert we go out, even if it's just a scoop of ice-cream so that I don't have to deal with it.

Also ... this is summer ... the best fruits in the world are available right now. they are sweet and far more satisfying ... and wouldn't you know ... when I ate a lot of sugar i rarely ate fresh fruit. I prefer the fruit!

    emoticon I still use a little Splenda. And the health gurus say a little dark chocolate is good for you. Hehehe, so to stay healthy, I do treat myself with a small portion of dark chocolate at least once a week. My hat is off to you for being able to survive without it!

    You go girl! I'm so proud of you! (But I can't say I'm going to follow you. I love chocolate too much, and chocolate without sugar just misses something. emoticon)

    That's GREAT!!! You are doing wonderfully. It feels good to get control of your life.

It was scary when I began label reading. WOW~ The stuff that's out there.
I'm doing the same thing and the first three days I wanted to snort the stuff (humor).
I missed it so bad! Now, I don't really care. 4 weeks here. Woo Hoo

Good Luck!

    If it helps there are foods out there that are labeled no added sugar. Good luck with getting rid oa the sugar. It isn't an easy task.

    I am with you on the no sugar plan. It was suggested by my acupuncturist. What a difference it has made! I still have temptations and on days when I cheat, I really can tell...
Good luck! I hope you have as good a feeling about giving it up as I have.

Why I'm Thanking My Responders

Monday, June 28, 2010

Honestly, I never dreamt that my trips to the SD Fair and non-participation in junk food would culminate in a blog that received oodles of responses. (smiling)

Thank you to all who responded. It gave me the opportunity to read about your own personal lives and healthy adventures, and I made some new friends in the process.

As a result of reading about your successes and, yes, failures (I've learned the most from mine), it has given me a new level of motivation and a strong sense of community. We are all in this together, and can really help each other - even when we least suspect we are doing so.

Have a wonderful day.

    I have always felt that working to lose weight as part of a group means that I have access to others opinions, successes and failures. I like not feeling alone on this journey.
