I know I have not been off long, but I am positive something has changed within my body because of the HHCG. It could all be in my head.. but I don't think so.

I feel in control now.. I can eat and stop... probably because of all my practice these past 4 months or so... I am making better decisions in my meals and actually am learning a lot from watching my naturally thin child.

I never realized how little she really eats. She will eat anything she wants, but not much at a time. She is not afraid of any foods, but if she finds it does not agree with her, she will just stop and move to something else. There is no agonizing for her... Tastes good to her, she eats what she wants of it. NOT MORE. she stops.. leaves food on her plate.. I don't force her to finish anything.. she couldn't if I tried to say eat it all.. not that I WOULD, but some parents do.

My parents did. EAT IT ALL.. don't waste.. blah blah.. well I got FAT FAT FAT from that... it won't happen with my natually thin child. My older daughter has lost her weight and she is still struggling with maintaining. HOWEVER she is learing also. It is OK to eat only what you are hungry for. Take smaller portions. It is all a learning experience.

My youngest daughter is overweight, but she is not ready to do anything yet. When she is and if she asks, I will help her. She has already noticed my loss and makes comments here and there about how she needs to lose. She is just not ready.

Wow, a novel this early... Hope you all have a wonderful day, I have things to do so I will be back later..
Excellent! My hunger didn't return until almost a week off the drops. It was more head hunger because I really wanted to load, but I had fears about loading. I think the fear caused me to eat more and get sick because I was thinking I wouldn't have those foods again.
My family was similar. Waste not, want not...starving children in Africa speech which really "fed" the fat kid in me. I do not make my children eat everything on their plates unless it's veggies and they ate all of the meat and bread Have a nice week, Deb. I'm so happy for you and your loses. I was up .6 lbs this morning.

Wonderful job maintaining. I did not begin exercising this weekend. Honestly, my allergies were kicking my butt. I hope to start soon though. To be continued...

I want to see for myself if after all this fast weight loss I can indeed maintain my weight while off the hhcg. I know I can maintain WITH the drops, but I want to test this theory of resetting the hypothal.... hypopotoumous.... ok you know what I mean... I just don't know how to spell it... I am a numbers person not an english teacher...

SSOOOOOO I am doing this until after Christmas UNLESS, I just can't stand NOT losing, GET TOO HUNGRY .. OR... I gain to over 200... so here we go!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend! I will be in and out today... so I'll talk with you soon!...

I would rather get to goal ON the drops and then try to maintain, than to gain a bunch of weight and have to lose it again... no thank you!!!!!

I WANT TO GET TO GOAL!!.. that is my number one priority!... number 1 !!! so If I choose to continue the drops and do whatever the heck I want to.. I will do it... I know I will be able to maintain then with the knowledge I have gained. I have NO DOUBTS, not anymore.

Thank you Dessa for all your support and wise words.. love ya hon!!

my virtual MIL

How are you? Busy today? I have been very productive BUT LCF has been uber slow still. I go on other forums to check things and LCF is the only one that's slow for me so I stay away....I am running out of hair to pull out from frustration

You'll maintain just fine! You'll see!!! BTW - I am so naive! LOL I didn't even notice when you were "challenged"....Regardless, I have faith in ya.

Oh lord.. who can walk away from a nice steak?... can't blame you at ALL dear......

Now the trick for me is to make that gorgeous steak, cut off what i know I can have, then put it away somewhere.. far far away from me.... sometimes it works, and sometimes it don't...

Just checking on you...





The Farmer's Almanac is predicting a very cold winter. It must be true because the squirrels are gathering NUTS. Three of my neighbors have disappeared.

Are you O.K.?

Morning thanks Brenda!!... Another day another .2 pounds down.. big whopppee.. Which is ok right now... what is the big deal about maintaining .....

ok ok, I'm really not trying to be a brat, I am just doing the same thing I was doing while losing, CALORIE CONFUSION, (thanks for the name Lee Anne!) I just add more food so I don't really lose. LOVIN IT!!.. this way I don't overeat out of thinking I can have whatever I want. I know I can have something if I am willing to go LOW the next day... how many times have I repeated myself on this? A LOT! That is cuz it works folks...

Everyone have a great day!!!...

You're doing great at maintaining! But, of course, most of us already knew you would.

Have a great day!
