Hi Buttah,

I am coming to you for help. I cant seem to do this!!! As long as it is actual hunger that I am dealing with, I am excellent. But with cravings, I bomb. And those cravings can be from any number of things, pms, moods, lack of sleep, etc.

Do you possible know what could be wrong? Am I the only one that can't do this protocol strictly?

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Shelle. You poor thing. I empathize, but I really don't know how to help. I mean, sure I crave everything. I'd love to have whatever my kids and husband are eating. I'd love to dive into something as healthy as my seaweed snacks that I live on in P3/P4. But I just refuse to, even when I haven't slept well, when I'm stressed, doesn't matter. I won't give in. It hinders my losses. I'm on a mission. I find actual hunger MUCH HARDER to deal with. Are you sure it's not actual hunger? (Doesn't sound like it.)

I wonder if some good old fashioned therapy might not help in conjunction with HCG to conquer emotional eating issues, if that's what this is?

Do you still doubt that HCG really works? That could be why you keep sabotaging yourself. But I assure you, it truly does.

I also highly recommend buying a skype session or two with Robin if you can. Her clinic is in Minnesota and you find it via google. It has the word "vivify" in it.

Do you have things to keep you from eating in the danger time period? For me it's Licorice tea (by Yogi), Good Earth spice tea, and/or my second apple sprinkled with cinnamon. I spread my foods out throughout the day - that really helps. Blend frozen strawberries with a tablespoon of skim milk and some stevia (if you need it) and ice for the evening "desert." There are tons of suggestions in other threads. Broth or soup w/ my veggie allows me to have a later dinner, too. I also nibble on cukes or raddishes (even if I've had all my veggies!). And if my dinner is later, my "desert" is later, which can help (although losses show up better in the morning when I don't eat anything after 7pm - but that's just timing, I know I'm still losing overall.) You've got to be armed with the right protocol ingredients BEFORE beginning a round to stay "safe" from craving temptation.

I'm sorry I can't be more help. xoxoxox hugs and love and please keep us in the loop.

Wow. I forgot to say that my clinic switched me (on my suggestion) to 175iu, which started this morning. So far I don't feel any different, but I know it will take a couple more days for the new dose to be fully in my system. I hope it speeds up losses!

Really? Nearly two weeks and down 7.3 pounds from loading? I guess it's not too horrible, but I was so hoping for more. At this rate I may not see the 130's in 3 weeks, and I was COUNTING on that.

Yes! By .1 it's a new number. I was going to say something but I can breathe and it'll go back up .1!

Pre-load weight: was 147, but day before loading was 148 and change.
03/30 VLCD1 149.9
03/31 VLCD2 148.1 (-1.8)
04/01 VLCD3 147.8 (-.3)
04/02 VLCD4 147.5 (-.2) I think.
04/03 VLCD5 146.5 (-1.0) bettah!!!
04/04 VLCD6 145.5 (-1.0)
04/05 VLCD7 144.7 (-0.8)
04/06 VLCD8 145.0 (+0.3)

Total loss for week 1: Approx 5 lbs including load weight, approx 3 lbs not including loading (WAY lower than rounds one and two)

04/07 VLCD9 144.6 I THINK (-0.4)
04/08 VLCD10 143.5 (-1.1)
04/09 VLCD11 STS
04/10 VLCD12 143.4 (-.1)
04/11 VLCD13 142.9 (-.5) 175iu begins
04/12 VLCD14 142.6 (-.3)
04/13 VLCD15 142 (-.6)

Safely (I hope) in virgin loss territory! The 175iu may be helping, but not immensely that I can see. Perhaps in another day or so, it will become clear. Hunger is about the same, certainly no worse. So far.

This morning's temp was 97.5 That's better, no? I don't know how close to 98.6 it needs to be.

Oh! And TOM never came. This is the longest I've gone. It may be coming, though. Hot flashes are still better than right before my injections, but still going on.

Oh again!

Total losses for Week 2: 3 lbs! Better than week 2 of my last round. Glad I did some math!

Okay, I'm officially thrilled that my dose was upped to 175iu. If only I'd done this way sooner (and didn't believe all the "go lower if you're hungry" people.

Pre-load weight: was 147, but day before loading was 148 and change.
03/30 VLCD1 149.9
03/31 VLCD2 148.1 (-1.8)

04/06 VLCD8 145.0 (+0.3)

Total loss for week 1: Approx 5 lbs including load weight, approx 3 lbs not including loading (WAY lower than rounds one and two)

04/07 VLCD9 144.6 I THINK (-0.4)
04/08 VLCD10 143.5 (-1.1)
04/09 VLCD11 STS
04/10 VLCD12 143.4 (-.1)
04/11 VLCD13 142.9 (-.5) 175iu begins
04/12 VLCD14 142.6 (-.3)
04/13 VLCD15 142 (-.6)
04/14 VLCD16 ?
04/15 VLCD17 140.8 (-1.2)

My average the last three days is .6 - a lot for me at this stage of the game. Still haven't had a real bathroom experience in 2 days, so may even go lower. And I'm not as hungry.

AND I'VE HIT MY ORIGINAL GOAL OF 140!!! (Just realized this. Actually my original original goal was 145, but HCG just made so much more possible!)

I'm not worried. This is my fourth day of no bathroom visit. All will adjust by tomorrow hopefully, and I suspect I'll have good losses. I had tried to taper off my Natural Calm. Not a good idea. I'm taking the full dose tonight.

Here is my clinic's stabilization method. The only thing missing is they did tell me to ease the fats in gradually. This DID work for me:


YOU MAY EAT:

- Any type of protein (including eggs and moderate amounts of cheese).
- Any vegetable, mixed and in any quantity, (limiting carrots and peas),
- Any fruit (except bananas and coconuts)
- Fats (butter, olive oil, salad dressing, avocado, nuts, seeds, and nut butters (in moderation*).
- Alcohol may be consumed but limit the intake to no more than one glass of wine, 2 oz of hard liquor, or a bottle of light beer per day (two to three times a week). Mixed drinks (which contain large amounts of sugar) are not allowed.

* (5-6) servings of fat per day is considered moderate. However, since zero starch and sugar are consumed during this phase, a slight overage of fat servings should not result in weight gain.

(1) fat serving equals:
- 1 tsp of butter
- 1 tbsp of olive oil, canola oil, nut & seed oils
- 1 tbsp peanut butter (or other nut butters)
- 16 pistachios
- 20 peanuts
- 6 almonds
- 1 tbsp cashews
- 4 walnut halves
- 2 tbsp. salad dressing
- 1/8th of an avocado
- 1 slice of bacon

DO NOT EAT:

- No starch or sugar is allowed during the 21 days of Stabilization.

Tomorrow would've been my last injection. I would have lost approx 9.7 lbs in 20 days, but that's COUNTING loading, which I've never counted in previous rounds (it's a ruse I tell ya!). So about 7+ lbs in 20 days.

I'm going to keep going another week-ish. I was so sure I'd be well into a new decade this round.

138 today. I go down, I go up, I hopefully go down more. Only one more shot left, unless I decide to add more.

Thanks, Reddy. Upping the dose helped with everything. Check out the Dr. Emma's plan thread when you have time. I wish I'd had time to up it again, but I'm only doing one more week (which is more than I'd planned). I hope my last week isn't a bust. But yes, I'm thrilled to be in the 130's. Would like a bit more buffer, though!

Update. Sorry for posting the whole thing, but it helps me. For the record, I have never had anything that will qualify as a whoosh or a surprisingly big drop other than the first couple days of a round. Never.

Pre-load weight: was 147, but day before loading was 148 and change.
03/30 VLCD1 149.9
03/31 VLCD2 148.1 (-1.8)
04/01 VLCD3 147.8 (-.3)
04/02 VLCD4 147.5 (-.2) I think.
04/03 VLCD5 146.5 (-1.0) bettah!!!
04/04 VLCD6 145.5 (-1.0)
04/05 VLCD7 144.7 (-0.8)
04/06 VLCD8 145.0 (+0.3)

Total loss for week 1: Approx 5 lbs including load weight, approx 3 lbs not including loading (WAY lower than rounds one and two)

04/07 VLCD9 144.6 I THINK (-0.4)
04/08 VLCD10 143.5 (-1.1)
04/09 VLCD11 STS
04/10 VLCD12 143.4 (-.1)

04/12 VLCD14 142.6 (-.3)
04/13 VLCD15 142 (-.6)

Total losses for week 2: 3 lbs.

04/14 VLCD16 ?
04/15 VLCD17 140.8 (-1.2)
04/16 VLCD18 141.2 (+.4)
04/17 VLCD19 141.? missed my chance to get an official weight again.
04/18 VLCD20 140.2 (-.8)

4/20 VLCD22 139.0 (-.9)

Total losses for week 3: 3lbs

4/21 VLCD23 139.5 (+.5)
4/22 VLCD24 137.4 (-.9)
4/23 VLCD25 138.0 (+.6)
4/24 VLCD26 137.7 (-.3)
4/25 VLCD27 137.6 (-.1)
4/26 VLCD28 137.2 (-.4)

Why oh why did I not ask them to raise my dose to 200iu this week?! I really think it would've helped, although it likely would've taken 3 days to get into my bloodstream at that level, and then I'd only have had a few left.

Will I even have a 2 lb week?! See, this is why I don't like long rounds. Why don't I listen to myself. Oh yeah, because now the waiting period is so dang long.

One more day of week 4, and then a few extra days.

Just a fly by for me to say I'm so bummed.

Up a fraction again. 137.5 I've been in the 137's for days, up and down, so this qualifies as a bonafide stall, in my extra week that I didn't even really want to do. Grrrrrr.

Meanwhile, the clinic gave me some add-on syringes to up my dose to 200 for these last days. So I did that today. Still nervous about going cold turkey off that dose, but... I don't know.

Grrrr.

And that makes my Week 3 total just a paltry 1.5 lbs. The ONLY positive I see that is that my clothes are looser than a week ago. (I may need to buy some 27's in jeans. So maybe the scale just hasn't caught up.

4/29 VLCD30 136.7 (-.9)

Ain't no Sookiemama, but at least I got into the 136's.
