you are doing a fantastic job!! yeah i think you just keep on is it rx sub lingual or homeopathic? i kept on with the homeopathic and it wasn't an issue when i did the rx sub lingual (started TOM on my LDW day) so i did a weeks interruption because i didn't want to end on day one of TOM and went back on a week and have done really well
hmm so i guess you could say i stopped dosing while on TOM but it was intentionally that way clear as mud huh??

Thanks everyone.
I am at 215.4 this morning. That is after eating though.

That is after lots of walking the past couple of days. And not alot of liquid intake.

so after 7 days that is 8.2 lbs.

Not bad but with Tom here and lots of walking these past two days and not much liquid I am sure I will be down more once TOM is gone!! My first 3 or 4 days are really heavy and then not much of one the last 3 days.

8.2# is AWESOME!!! Especially with TOM visiting. After he's gone you'll probably have a very nice release!!!!

Good morning!! Same weight this morning.

However, I need to get more fluid intake today. I didnt get much yesterday. I was just exausted from the weekend. I am sure I will have a lose tomorrow. My rings are VERY tight!!

Good morning beautiful Ladies!!

I am going to get me a measuring tape and measure.
I wish I would have already!!
I have lost a lot in my stomach pouch area (3 pregnancies and one being A C-SECTIOn)
and I noticed some loss on my back. I gained all my fat on my back with this last pregnancy!! THANK GOODNESS its going because I have never had that. And it isnt looking good in shirts. And it would be hard to cover up in a bathing suit.

Y'up, drinks lots and lots of water today and you'll have a nice drop tomorrow. I will use my juice from one lemon throughout the day and mix up nice big glasses of ice water/lemon/stevia for a refreshing treat.

Thanks!! I can see my back fat disappearing..ITS still there but its smaller and so it my stomach.

I was at 214.8 today. That is 8.8 lbs in 9 days!
I am still retaining lots of water. It just wont go!! But this is day 5 of TOM so once he is gone maybe the water will too. I drank enough yesterday!

8.8# in 9 days is AWESOME!!! How many days on LC would it have taken to lose 8.8#? I'm sure once TOM is done you will have a nice big loss. Just keep drinking water and you'll be fine. You know what you can try? Take warm/hot water and put a lemon in it - works as a diuretic to release the water!!!!

Probably just a nice sized mug of it. When I did LA Weightloss this was always a trick to get rid of water retention.

I have been fine most other days but today has been hard.
I want to eat and eat. And I want some JUNK food!! Some pizza with garlic butter.
How am I going to get past this? I know I am thinking about the loss and what I have lost but mmmm it sure sounds YUMMY. I think I am tired of chicken. I have ate all my food for the day too because its been a difficult day. I think I am gonna try to get to bed early tonight to wake up to a new day of hopefully not craving anything.

How did you do? I'm sorry you are having cravings. Maybe check these things.

1. Are you dosing correctly? Not too much or too little?
2. Are you activating the bottle before dosing? You have to tap the bottom of the bottle on your palm 10x to activate.
3. Could you have contaminated your bottle? The dropper cannot touch anything except the inside of the bottle and the hcg. I believe if it touches your mouth, tongue, etc. and then you put the dropper back in the hcg it becomes contaminated.
4. Is TOM coming? That can cause major cravings and hunger.
5. Are you drinking enough water?

Thanks!!
I ended up having a couple of fries and a couple of bites of stuffing that I made the family for dinner. But I did better than I thought I would.
I am fine today.
I just had a peice of chicken because I was hungry.
I am better at skipping dinner than breakfast. I usually switch the two.

I am not shaking it!!
TOM is here
I am drinking but I dont think enough. I am retaining lots of fluid.
maybe more water and less salt.
I am busy today but maybe tomorrow I am gonna cook up a bunch of plain chicken. What do you season yours with?

Before you dose don't shake the bottle, "tap" the bottom of it onto your palm 10x to activate the hcg.

I usually use salt, pepper, and garlic powder on my grilled chicken.

Can you post your menus?

Also, what are your losses this week?

I will start posting my menu. I havent kept up with them.
Maybe I am eating more than I am suppost to.
Maybe I should get a scale and measure everything.
Maybe that will help!!

I have thought about doing this:
Getting some containers that have dividers in them.
Divide them out into 2 meals and thats what I can have for the day.
Measure everything and have it ready to go.
I may just do this tomorrow.
And get a jug of some sort and fill it with water and thats the water I have to drink for the day.

Maybe I am eating more than I am suppost to due to lack of planning and just guestimating??

Ok, I will tap it. Not shake

Yes, you definitely need to weigh your protein portions. They have to be 100 grams or 3.5 ounces.

You have been at 215 for 5 days so you could do an apple day if you want. Start at lunch and go to lunch of the next day - take 6 large apples and eat whenever you want. Only drink water if the apples don't quench your thirst. I did this about a week ago and it gave me a nice loss. The apple days are to break stalls greater than 5 days.

Good morning, Tonia ! Hope you feel better today ! Did you make yourself some tea ? There are some yummy flavors out there - Apple, Ginger peach, Chocolate Yerba Mate, etc.. I'm sure drinking more water will get you your release tomorrow ! You're still doing great !
