Day 18 – Down 3 lbs! [Alesha's HCG Journey]

Well, well, well, I think I may have found the combo that works for me. After days of loosing only .5 lb each day then yesterday’s gain of .5 lb had me uber depressed. I am so sick of the food and I have little options b/c of being a kind of picky eater. I did some digging b/c I refused to have another dinner like I did yesterday, I was crying while I ate it b/c I just didn’t like the smell, taste or feel of eating it. It was sad that I could “no longer” enjoy what I was eating. I think I hit my lowest point and decided I needed to find other recipes b/c I already tried the ones off this site that I would like. I needed a change. I also decided that I need to drink at least 4.5 – 5 of my bottles of water. I had been drinking 4 but I was determined to see a loss today so I drank more. It is amazing what happens when you follow protocol and drink a TON of water. I swear by the end of the day my eye balls were floating around in my head. Hahaha!

 

So, without further ado, I lost 3 lbs this morning! I know that is not average but it was a nice welcome change after having such a poor week so far. It helped me hit my 2nd goal of hitting 20 lbs loss. As of today I am down 21.5 lbs and loving it. I am bound and determined to get thru this. I apologize that the last few posts were “depresso” but I figure it shows what I am really going thru and if people that are looking on the site wondering if they should do this. I think it shows the truth of what is going on during the diet. But so far it has been worth it. Being only at day 18 and being down 21.5 lbs is amazing. It is hard as I always say but if this is the toughest thing I have to do to get back to a healthy weight then I will persevere! Have a great weekend every one.

    Well.. Well..Well… Is right!!! I finally had good results on the scale this morning… 3 lbs down !! I did an apple day yesterday with H2o,cause I was stalled for 3 days & just could not stand another day of disappointment. It was remarkably easy to do, was not hungry at all, but ate an apple about every 3 hours with a large glass of H2o. By having the so many apples, you could imagine what it did to my intestinal plumbing… need I say more?? Ha Ha!! ANYWAY…. I am doing the happy dance today. It’s my Birthday tomorrow, so we are going out with some friends for dinner… I WILL stay on protocol, no doubt about it!! :)

    Thanks so much… My 2 girlfriends wanted to take me out for lunch for my B-Day today SO……………. I went, had a dinner salad (only lettuce & vin. dsg) with a glass of H20 YIKES !! I had my fruit and melba when I got home for a snack. What a cheap lunch that was for them !! No matter what obstacle come in my way, I will jump that hurdle & keep jumping til I reach the !#?& finish line!! Have a conquering week-end Alesha.

    I have the exact same situation! I was doing good on the diet, losing 2 pounds a day, then went to losing 1, then 1/2 pound, and the last few days I have been staying the same. I cannot drink half my body in water… I do try but so much water makes me want to yak lol. I have done a steak day yesterday and I am following the protocal to a T but I cannot get past this stall. I credit this morning because I cannot seem to get past this and I dont know what else to do. I have even changed up the foods that I eat and it is still the same. Not wearing makeup, not using lotions, any ideas? I have been doing so good and down 14 well, this morning after my steak day I gained a pound so down 13.. this is so depressing. What can I do?

    Down .8 today…at least I broke the stall I have had for the past 2 days (AGAIN)!!! I do not have 100 lbs to lose… but I am going for the 60 days anyway. I am mentally good, no problems with anything except the 5 different “Stalls” I have had since beginning the diet!! They are frustrating, especially when you have not done anything different on the diet. I went and walked 1 mile & biked 5.5 miles a the the Club yesterday, felt good!! Don’t know if that broke my stall or what??? Anyway… 3lbs from 30# down… cannot wait !!

    Alesha:
    I just began HCG on Monday, March 21st – 6 days ago. Before beginning I did a ton of research and read almost all of the blogs on here. I think seeing how “real” you all are and hearing when you are down or depressed helped me to make the decision to do HCG. I have yo-yo dieted all my life and thought this might be too good to be true. But after reading your individual journeys it made me feel like I can do it too. The first 2 days were AWFUL but after that it got easier. I realized that I am “addicted” to food because even though I’m not hungry I want to eat everything. I was craving things I would have never eaten before. I am almost done with my first full week on HGC and it is finally getting better. Thank you all for sharing your journey! I look forward to more. Any advice or suggestions are welcome!
