Worked like a charm!

Well "steak day" worked like a charm! I lost a little over 2 lbs, which brought me to 134. Excellent! After avoiding them like the plague, it's nice to know they work :) I don't care for not eating all day, lol, so I have been using Steak a... Read more
Want to try a steak day!
Friday, July 23, 2010      1 comments

Well, I don't really need a steak day but I have never tried one. I was up a pound this morning from my LIW (135) and usually I will eat clean for a day or two and it comes right off. It's not surprising that I gained because I had three large d... Read more

Stuck - but it's not so bad!
Sunday, June 27, 2010      1 comments

Well, I have been stuck at 135 for a few days now. I won't complain - I have been stuck at worse weights ;) If the scale doesn't move tomorrow, I will probably do a "break diet" for a few days (increase protein and hold carbs). I learned t... Read more
I find myself LYING about my weight loss ...
Saturday, June 19, 2010      9 comments

I find that I am just very embarrassed about how overweight I was. I was proud of my losses up to a point. The other day, someone asked me how much weight I had lost and I lied. I have lost over 65 pounds, but I said "50" and even that made me w... Read more
Melba Toast Question
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      7 comments

I usually use the grissini but I have to admit, I am getting tired of them. I bought some Melba Rounds yesterday and was wondering how many rounds equals a Melba Toast. Is a serving of Melba Toast just one piece? I usually have between 1/2 and 3... Read more
6 Months of Dieting - Reflections
Saturday, June 12, 2010      7 comments

Well, it's been 6 months since I started hCG last December. I had never dieted prior to that, having little faith in traditional diets. I had hoped to have already reached my goal of losing 75 pounds. I came close, having lost almost 65 in spite... Read more

Monday, May 31, 2010      1 comments

On Memorial Day, what do we remember? God Bless our troops and say a prayer for our fallen soldiers but also say a prayer for the millions of Iraqis, Afganis, Palestinians and other innocents who have died at the hands of the American military o... Read more

Saturday, May 22, 2010      9 comments

Happy Happy Happy!!! I can't believe how happy I am on this protocol! P3 is a breath of fresh air and had my first P3 day yesterday. I was sure I would show a gain with all I ate but I did my best to listen to my body and kept my LIW (141.2... Read more

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      8 comments

You know, the hardest part of this whole process for me was realizing how bad my problem was. I was never overweight and have an excellent self-image. Too excellent, lol! In fact, I look at me now and I can't even imagine being as overweight as ... Read more

Well, I made it to 60 lbs. down this morning - a fantastic milestone! I have my last shot for the round tomorrow, but I may mix up some more and go for that last 6 lbs. to reach my goal of 135. I'll decide in the next couple of days. Then I will... Read more

I haven't drawn a daily card for a while and up turns another major! The Hermit is the card for introspection. It's time to turn inward, away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day society. The answers I seek, whether they be to my health and ... Read more
