Wt: 178 lbs
The scale is playing with me today. I got on and it said 177 then crept up to 178, what a pisser. Hope tomorrow is a better day, I am so tired today. My cats awoke me at 4:30 and kept at it till 6:30. I awoke my daughter and told her to feed them. She was pissed but she did it. I don't think she'll come out of her room today and I will not allow her to use the computer since she should have fed the cats last night. C Ya!

The scale was playing with me today, it started out at 177 then crept up to 178, that's fine by me, that's a whole pound lost overnight. Awesome, eh?! Let's see what tomorrow holds for me, hopefully this will continue for the next 20 days or so, but I will just have to wait and see.

Wt: 179 lbs
Aaaaahhh!! I made it back down to 179, even after my binging this weekend. I'm starting to feel better. I just felt so sick after everything I ate. I am now back on VLCD. My daughter is off from school for the next 2 weeks so it will be hard for me to cook my foods and hers as well. Sometimes she tells me she's not hungry so that I don't get tempted to eat what ever it is she's having. I tell she doesn't have to worry, I have the willpower now to resist temptation, especially since I made a new batch of HCG. I got a call that my supplies are being reshipped as of yesterday. Let's see what happens with that and if I lose anything by tomorrow.

Wt: 182 lbs.
Pheeew!! I managed to drop 3 lbs overnight. Is that cool or what? I guess if it had happened without me gorging, that would have been cooler. So yesterday I started back on VLCD. I wasn't really hunger till about 3pm. I was going to skip dinner but decided not to. I probably could have since I had so much in reserves from loading. I didn't go to work yesterday (bad girl) so let's see what the rest of the day has in store for me.

Wt: 185 lbs
Boy did I load or what? I slept so miserably. I don't know if I should go to work today. I feel really crappy. I'll start VLCD today, so wish me luck.

Load Day

Wt: 181lbs.
I decided since my HCG wasn't working or lost its potency, I would do a load day. I obviously started yesterday and will today also. I already started my day with sweet bread, menudo with french bread and coffee. I am so stuffed right now, I feel like I'm going to explode, literally. I just have to decide what to do for lunch. I'm shocked that I gained two pounds overnight, can't wait to see what the scale says tomorrow!!!

Wt: 179 lbs.
No weight loss today, I really think my batch has fizzled. Today is my rest (from injection) day. Tomorrow I will mix a fresh batch and see if that helps. Since my supplies were sent back by UPS, I'll have to wait again.

Ok, so I ended up cheating big time today. I really don't think my HCG is any good anymore and hasn't been for the past few days. I ate chicken fajitas today, twice as a matter of fact. Then for dinner, cuz my daughter was home, I made tilapia fish (200 grams) for each of us and asparagus. I fried it in butter and oil, no breading. I was really hunger today, how sad. Let's see what the scale has in store for me tomorrow!!!

Friday, September 21, 2007


WT: 179lbs
The scale didn't budge today, I may have had too much fish for lunch yesterday, not sure. I am going to rest from the injection tomorrow and mix a new batch of HCG on Sunday. I may have to go a little longer than the 40 injections if I mix a new batch. I'd hate for it to go to waste. Let's just see what happens.

Is it true?

Wt: 179 lbs.
Ok, I don't know if the scale is playing with me but it says I'm 179 today. I sure hope its not playing with me. I'm in the 170's club now!!! WuuuHoooo!! I had to use more HCG today cuz I really think my batch is losing its potency. Let's see what tomorrow holds!!

Wt: 180lbs.
Well, I lost another pound overnight, yipeee!!! Maybe I will meet my goal of 5 more pounds by October 2nd. I'm still debating whether to continue on through till the end of October, begin Phase 3 on November 2nd so by Thanksgiving, I can enjoy a real meal of sorts. Or should I restart Phase 2 on Thanksgiving, so that could be my load day!! Good timing, then I would do the 23 days straight of injections. I'm still debating and researching so, I will have to make a decision soon. I'm trying to get some more HCG this weekend, so let's see what happens.

Tuesday, September 18, 2007


Wt: 181 lbs.
I got on the scale this morning and I'm down another pound!! Maybe I will lose those 5 lbs. by the time I finish the 40th shot. I've been reading the threads in the HCG yahoo group and some are going longer than the 40 shots. Something to think about. Maybe I'll continue till the beginning of November, take three weeks off and begin my load day on Thanksgiving!! That would be perfect. Now I got to break out my calendar and reconfigure my shot schedule.

Monday, Monday

WT: 182 lbs.
Well, it finally happened, I dropped another pound today, Yipeee!!! I really need to buy a new scale, I believe this one that I've had for over 10 years is fighting me now. I think the scale has its set points. I am wishing and hoping that by October 3rd or 4th, I will weigh in the 170's. That would be so cool. This has been the easiest and most effective diet that I have ever been on. I just hope I continue to have success with it. I will restart Phase 2 on Thanksgiving, do the 23 days straight and be done before Christmas. Then hopefully I can restart in February for what I hope is my last round. Wish me luck.

Got up too early

Wt: 183 lbs.
I got up too early today cuz my cats decided I should be awake at 0615 hrs. Anyway, I tried to go back to sleep but I couldn't. I decided I needed to go to the store so I brushed my teeth, brushed my hair, got dressed and went on my merry way. I got there about 0700 hrs. I bought my no salt added vegetables, poblanos and chicken broth. I want to try roasting the poblanos on the grill then stuff them with beef, chicken or shrimp. Sounds yummy!!! I can't have cheese yet but those chile stuffed with shrimp looks so good!! Anyway, I weighed myself this morning and didn't loose. I need to cut out that breadstick or melba cuz everytime I eat it, I don't loose. Can you believe it, one lousy breadstick or melba. I have even been drinking wu-long tea and that does seem to help my weight loss but I think its clearing up my face. Can't complain about that!!! I gave myself a little extra HCG because as I stated before, I believe my batch is loosing its potency. We won't find out till tomorrow if that helped or not.

Saturday (tough)

Wt: 183lbs
I have to admit the weekends are tough for me because I'm home, I'm bored and I just want to eat. Since I started HCG, I haven't felt ravenous but my daughter always wants fast food. She's thin so it just goes right through her. Anyway, I need to cook my food for the week so I'm prepared. I didn't lose anything today, I'm starting to wonder if my HCG is losing its potency again.

Wt: 183 lbs.
First let me start by saying my T.O.M. came at 4am. When I got up and weighed myself I was finally down another pound. I'm so glad cuz I did not want to do an apple day. At work I had to work with someone who is getting over a cold or the flu. Great, next week I will probably be sick and hit another stall.

Thursday, September 13, 2007

Arrrrgh again!!!

Wt: 184 lbs.
Well, I still weigh the same today. That's good in a way, at least I'm not going up!!! But I'm also not losing. Let's see what tomorrow holds. I really do not want to do an apple day, but if I need to I will do it on Saturday or Sunday.

Wednesday, September 12, 2007


Wt: 184 lbs.
That's all I have to say. It's been two days and no weight loss. I just hope the inches are coming off. Yesterday, the guys at work tortured me again. One was eating chicken alfredo and another was eating tacos with rice and beans. It all looked good but did not tempt me. The only thing that I almost ate was the broccoli that came with the chicken alfredo, but I don't think that is allowed on this protocol, plus I don't know how it was cooked (they may have used oil). Anyway have to wait to see what tomorrow holds.

Back to work

Wt: 184 lbs
I had such a busy morning today. That's what I get for putting my grocery shopping till today. I had to go to the grocery store, Sam's Club (I didn't even put gas), and get a refill of water.

3rd Week on HCG

Wt: 184.5
Hey, I was a little discouraged this morning. I got on the scale and it said I gained a 1/2 a pound. However, I waited about a hour and didn't have anything to eat or drink. I got on the scale again and it said I dropped a pound. So that puts me at 184 for today. Strange right? I know they say to weigh yourself upon rising and emptying your bladder but that's what happened. Anyway, I'm going to omit the breadstick/melba toast from my diet and see if that helps. I noticed when I do have it I don't budge the scale. Melba toast isn't even that big. I haven't started my menses which should have begun last week. I'm not worried though, I'm kinda glad it hasn't. It's such a hassle. Tata for now.

08/18/07 Weight: 197
09/09/07 weight: 184

total lost so far: 13 lbs.

Food Torture Again

Only lost 1/2 a pound today. Not sure why, did feel some cramping and experienced some near fainting episode at work. Speaking of work, yesterday, those guys tortured me again. Some were having Wendy's and another was eating a brisket platter which consisted of brisket (of course), coleslaw, baked beans, steak fries (mmmmm!!) and a roll!! Bastards!! Anyway, even though they were eating it all it just looked good but I didn't want it! That's were I am proud of myself. Don't know if its the HCG that helps or just having an aversion to eating fast food now. I ordered some BW today through via internet, let's see if I don't get ripped off!! That's it for now, let's see what tomorrow holds.

P.S. I also dropped my dose of HCG to 125iu per day.

Food Torture at Work

Just to let you all know, I'm down a pound today as well!!! Wooo Hooo!! I'll have a pot of coffee to celebrate!! Let me just tell you about yesterday at work. I always pack my lunch, of course, and one guy orders boneless chicken wings. He was nice enough not to eat them in front of me and luckily their aroma did not surround me. Then after I ate my dinner, some other guys show up and they have BBQ. I'm talking brisket, both lean and fatty, bread, coleslaw and they had the nerve to offer me some. I was tempted cuz it smelled great but I just reminded myself, I can have that when I'm done with the injections and can move on to a different phase of the HCG diet. Plus I don't think that restaurant will go out of business within the next month, so it will still be there when I'm done and I can have brisket. Anyway, then later these same guys show up with ice cream. Bastards!!! I resisted it all!! I'm very proud of myself and one other guy at work who didn't know I was on a diet, is being supportive. That's it for now, I'll try and remember to update tomorrow.
Starting weight:197 My height: 5'0" (sad but true)
Today's weight: 185

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Well, I'm happy, happy, happy!! I got on the scale this morning and I was down a pound!! I don't know if its because I mixed a new batch of HCG yesterday or what, but I am ecstatic!!! Let's see what tomorrow brings!!

Wednesday, September 5, 2007

I forgot to blog yesterday, but just to let you know I lost 1/2 a pound yesterday and today I'm still at the same weight. I went ahead and mixed a new batch of HCG since the last bottle seems (to me) that it has lost its potency. Let's see what the scale has to tell me tomorrow.

Labor Day torture

I got up late this morning since I was off from work, got on the scale and I lost a 1/2 pound. I find this very interesting since I didn't give myself an injection yesterday. Last week when I skipped my shot, I neither lost nor gained for 3 days. I say today is torture because all around town, there are festivals of all sorts. There is one in particular that I enjoy going to. It is actually held at a monastery. They have this festival once a year, labor day weekend, to raise money for scholarships for these young men. The food booths are awesome!! I will resist temptation such as yesterday when my daughter came home with Italian food. Pasta, garlic bread and even Bailey's Irish Creme cheesecake!! Talk about evil!! Anyway, I resisted and was rewarded this morning on the scale!!!

Sunday, September 2, 2007


Well, I'm new to all of this: blogging and the HCG diet. I started on 08/18/07 and have lost 8 pounds. I'm not sure if my batch of HCG is ineffective. It just doesn't feel like its working as it did when I first began treatment. That's it for now. I hope someone has some advice for me.

I'm trying to do the 40 injections with once a week rest. Hopefully I will lose the 34 lbs. before I reach the 40th injection. I'm using 1ml of 5000iu mixed with 30ml of BW, which would amount to 1.66iu per day.

Beginning weight: 197
Today's weight: 188
