Ended up with only 1400 cals yesterday, I should have eaten closer to 2000 but I was not hungry at all... today I will try to eat more.. sounds so crazy!! to be eating MORE to lose..but it works for me...

Okay, I have a question... since you're cycling... is it up one day (2000 cals), down the next (under 1000), up the next?

I'll be honest and tell you that this is what I STRIVE for, but it is not what always happens. I have been having a pattern of eating my higher cal days on the weekends, and then pretty low during the week. It is just easier that way for me..

I would LIKE to do alternate days, but for some reason it just has not worked out that way yet.

Like Monday, I had 724? yesterday was 1430, today I was going for higher to shake things up, but I am really not hungry. I have only had about 400 cals today. So I am going to listen to my body and if I don't feel hungry, I won't. I KNOW I will eat lots more on the weekends because I am home and I always do...

My plan is very random, because I don't like to plan... I'm a rebel!.. Whatever you feel like doing, then you should do it, experiment!

ive seen through some PM's that the doubt is on.... that's ok, not a problem. I have no reason to lie, I'm not selling anything... I don't have a website...nor will I EVER....

Not trying to do anything but lose this darn fat... nothing else... what works for me works.. and that is all... it's really not that deep..... I love when folks try to be sneaky.. it shows insecurity... oh well.. whatever....

Today so far has been really tough to eat... don't know why? Just no hunger at all..

Coffee with cream
half a turkey sandwhich on low carb bread with mustard
2 diet dr peppers
1 cucumber
2 oz of chicken.. tried to eat more!!
half grapefruit
1 oz motz cheese

a mess load of water!! Just a real weird eating day.. I was trying for 2000, I don't think I'm going to make it unless I have a giant cookie from Panera's again, or 2

I heard about HCG and weightloss in the 1970s at a military hospital, of all places and they did NOT follow a set diet except for it being calorie restricted. 1200 if I remember rightly!

Yes Ladies.. this has been around forever, and the info is out there you are right Chantyl! .. All they have to do is READ IT!! that many people can't be making things up...oh well.. I don't care I know what is real...

I am ready to move forward and DOWN THAT DANG scale!!....

So I got home and ate a Klondike bar.. LOL it was the only thing here that I wanted.. so I had it.. No big Cookies Susan!!.. .darn it!!...

I have to figure up my day so far and see how it adds up. I don't like to eat late because it seems to stick to me more.. but I think I need more food..

For real???? I was IN the Army for 20 years from 1969 to 1989 and fought and battled my weight the entire time. Even had to crash diet just to get IN the Army! I never heard of hcg until early this year!!!

Would love to hear the details of what the military did back then with this!!!

Thanks Meek, I'll do that.. I love Corny!... Anyhoooo... I had heard of something in the 70's using an animals HCG? like a pregnant Mare?... or maybe I am imagining that.. could be..

When I first started reading about it seriously it was on here... at that time though everyone was only doing injections and I thought that was NUTS!!.. But the more I read since December 09 till when I started it, was the HHCG and how it worked pretty much the same... so that is when I thought I'd try it.. The rest is history in this thread.................

I'm not saying you're imagining that, but maybe you're thinking of the Premarin stuff that menopausal women use? It's made using the urine of pregnant mares...

I have no idea how I know that!

I can't believe people are going OUT OF THIER WAY to bash the WOE you are chosing to do... unbelievable.


My intentions of doing a combo of hi/lo cal days isn't going too well.. Mine seem to all be high. Hope I lose in the morning.. I just ate steak, onions, red peppers, and almost a whole avacado.

Seems to be a bit of transitioning in this WOE! I've been eating a few things clearly off the charts ... homemade trail mix, yogurt ... P3 type foods ... and I've been in a stall for a week so this 'experiment' is REALLY a leap of faith! Mentally/emotionally I want a "P3 break" but I also want to keep losing [been on P2 this time for 35 days now!] ... enter THIS plan. Guess if I start gaining I'll go back to Plan A!!!

We were stationed in Germany at the time. Since I didnt do the HCG, all I know is a few of the gals were seeing a Dr on base who was doing the shots plus diet. And it was quite effective. We formed our TOPS group for those of us who needed dieting help while over seas.

That is the thing about this experiment. We all tend to go a bit WILD when the freedom is there.. so of course our weight is going to be all over the place... This is where the DISCIPLINE has to come in!!!.. I am guilty of eating way too much on the weekends, and most of the time I gain or stand still... then I HAVE to discipline myself to get way back down there on calories during the week. That seems to be the way this works for me..

Sunday I think I had almost 3000 cals... it was just ridiculous.. because I was not that hungry.. Monday 724.. lost 2.. Tues back up some in cals .. did not lose..

Wed..yesterday... I was not hungry and SHOULD have not eaten much, but I did NOT discipline myself and ate last night when I knew better! I only had a .2 loss. I ended up over 1900 cals yesterday. DUMB!! because I know I should have just gone to bed... I would have been very satisfied with 1000 cals.

THAT is what Chantyl and I were talking about a while back. We love the freedom of eating, but MUST still discipline ourselves to LOSE. If we don't we get a nice big standstill.. and that is FINE for MAINTAINING!!! but not for losing.... which is my goal.. duhhh...

Today I am going to go LOW again. I am not hungry, I have that mini load from last night.. lol so LOW CALS today. Hopefully it will push the water out of me..

So don't fret girls, you know what works for you and if you can eat what you like a day or two a week, but really buckle down the other days, that might be the key to getting this fat off.... experiment continues...
