I just want to say if you're wondering if this Spark People experience, hCG and now Sensa works I'm living proof it does... me and a huge number of other people. <BR> <BR> You just have to want to make it work, apply yourself, be PATIENT... stay focused on your goals and don't give up! <BR> <BR> I shared this on here before but I'll say it again. Several years ago I weighed in at over 300 pounds. I refused to go to my doctor because I didn't want his...

I might just post a personal recipe from time to time. <BR> <BR> Poached Egg Breakfast! <BR> <BR> This is a simple, quick, nutritional, filling breakfast that's one of my favorites. The best part of the whole thing is that it's only 204 calories (including the coffee). The calories were calculated via SP's Nutrition Tracker. <BR> <BR> Here's what it all consists of: <BR... Fri, 10 Jun 2011 12:49:23 EST This here hCG thing! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4232225 Well, I thought I'd post a blog to show my first two weeks results of the "Keeping Healthy", Phase 4 of the hCG plan. I'm over four weeks into it but the first two weeks I kept a running tab of my daily results. So, I thought I'd go ahead and post them. Keep in mind I was on the road for work and was staying at a motel for the better part of these 14 days. I lived off of restaurant food and sometimes I'd nuke up some food in the room via the microwave. I continued to work out every day. My wo... Sat, 14 May 2011 13:10:28 EST Phase 3 (Maintenance.

It’s slow going now but then again, we don’t want weight loss or gain beyond 2 pounds in this phase. I’m riding right on a gain of 2 pounds so that gives...
