Its been way too long since I had the time to post on here so I thought it was time to update my progress on my diet journey!
Recap: I started using the HCG drops from Las Vegas HCG.com in January. My starting weight was 204.6 lbs. I did the 15 day "session" and lost 15lbs. There were a few ups and downs, i dropped my bottle and broke it, I cheating here and there but overall was very happy with the results!
I wanted to take a few days break before starting another session. One of the issues I have with the HCG diet drops is the measurements of the drops. I am never quite sure if I am using too much or not enough. So I purchased the "pellets" to begin my second round. Then life stepped in and interrupted all my well laid plans. I had visitors from out of town come to visit for a couple of weeks. It is really hard to maintain a diet plan when you are the "cook" for other members of the household. I also caught a cold and spent several days just feeling like garbage (am also over it). So I scrapped my plans and tried to just maintain the weight loss that I had already accomplished. Welllllll that didnt go so well either,. I am sad to say. I put back on 4 of the pounds I lost. But considering everything I felt that 4lbs was really not all that much.
I have since starting again and am on Day #3 of the VLCD. I began with the drops (however today I am doing an experiment to see if I get the same results by using the pellets only) and am now at 189.6 which is back to my original 15lbs loss. I have a goal of losing at least another 25-30 lbs. So I still have a long way to go. One thing I have noticed so far this round, I am not nearly as hungry as I was the last time.
With all the dieting that I have done throughout my life, I must admit that the HCG diet has been one of the easiest and most effective that I have done. You do have to discipline yourself to stick to it. I am going to try to keep the blog posts update on a daily basis as it helps me enormously to keep it honest.
If you need to lose some weight and are contemplating a diet, I really do suggest you look into the HCG diet plan. Las Vegas HCG.com has been very helpful and supportive so go take a look around and see if this diet plan is for you! I for one would just like to say a big THANKS to them for all the help I have gotten :0)
