Thanks Magie and Danielle. I'm back at it today with another DD. So far so good. I have had some coffee and a bagel thin with butter. I have 100 calorie popcorn, 100 calorie almond packs for more snacks and need to go chug some water.

Good morning.

Looking forward to seeing the scale move in the right direction. I'm up 2 lbs since the weekend. Need to get these rotations spot on again.

Wow, what a day. Ended up getting a call from the school that DD5 was in the nurses office with a sore throat and cough. So off we went to get her and to Dr. We get there and they were closed from 12 to 1 for lunch. So we went for lunch and then back at 1. While DD was getting checked out I had a coughing spell as my cough still isn't gone from last week. Dr checked me out too. My lungs were clear but she didn't like that I still had a cough. Both me and DD left with a prescription for a steroid and antibiotic. I'm feeling better already, should have done this a week ago.

Had a good UD today and I'm determined to have a good DD tomorrow. TOM showed up today too.

OMG we are twins! TOM started for me today, I'm on an antibiotic, and I had DD at the doctor today Our lives must be intertwined somehow I'm really determined to get a good DD in today, I haven't had a good one in a week. I even bought slim-fast premade shakes!

We must be twins!!!! I haven't had a good DD at all this week. I have been so hungry. Not stressing about it this week, going to continue to get better and refocus on Monday.

What a crazy busy week this has been. I am finally starting to feel better. I was up 3 lbs today. Not going to stress about it. I have been eating a little more this week because I am on prednisone for bronchitis that I am getting over. I have been hungrier than normal and TOM is also in the house. I know that in no time the 3lbs will be gone as well as some with it. I have been going to the bathroom like crazy today so I think my body is finally releasing some water. Here's hoping.

Oh poor Melanie, Tom and being on Prednisone! No wonder the scale is up honey. Please don't weigh yourself with all this going on, the number on that scale will come down when all things settle. down. Take care of yourself.

Thanks Magie. I am staying away until next week. I only have two more days of the prednisone.

It's been a pain for sure. Lol

Hopefully you're feeling better. That prednisone is some nasty stuff, it's no doubt you're up on the scale. Keep on going, the numbers will align in no time!

Hello. I'm back to journal my weight journey. . So I got way to comfortable and didn't keep an eye on the scale. Had to buy a new pair of jeans a size up. That should have made me get serious..... Nope. So then I had to buy a new pair of capris and they started getting tight. I felt horrible. I started a new job and a lady I worked with told me about her success with hcg.... I thought about it but that was about it. Then I started researching it a bit and figured I should just do it!!!!! So here I am 6 days in to it and 7 lbs down!!!! . I have adapted a new motto. Food is for fuel, not pleasure!!!! And I can do anything for 21 days.

Welcome back!
Nice loss I have a package of hcg tablets (homeopathic) on my cupboard waiting for me, but I keep forgetting and buy stuff like avocados then I have to eat before they go bad. I'm thinking of starting on Monday - my son's bday is Sat and we'll probably have a big dinner for father's day so those could be my loading days. My only concern is I need to work out and I'm afraid I won't be able to on that few calories. How is your energy level?

Thanks!!! Great to be back.

Unbelievably to me... My energy level is good. I have felt like working out, but just haven't because I am trying to do exactly as protocol says this first time. My friend who did this as well worked out without any problems. She just didn't lose as fast as she would have if she wouldn't have worked out. She still lost close to 30 lbs doing it though. I say give it a try. I never thought I could do it because of the such low calories... But the hcg helps so much. I am not hungry much at all. I had to make myself eat my foods today.

Hi Melanie,
I am marking my spot because your journal is so motivating. I love seeing people triumph. Feel free to read mine. To make a long story short; I'm doing hhcg very rogue though. I am aiming to be around 1200 calories with balance. Protein, Veggies, and some carbs. I also eat most of my meal at one time in the day so it allows me better control from snacking and thinking about what I will eat next. I started again on Monday this week. So far so good...keep posting because I love reading
