HCG Diet Day 12

So it has been 2 weeks since I did my HCG Loading days… Man, Pigging out was tough!

Friday April 9th:
-Went out for breakfast: granola pancake and lots of bacon
-Went out for lunch: Subway Spicy Italian 12″
-Snacked on my normal days food: Cheese Sticks and Pistaccios
-Went out for Dinner: Dominos cheesy bread (the whole thing!) and 1 slice of pepperoni
-Snacked on more pistaccios (at least 1lb)

(BTW… I think the pizza made DBF and I sick, cuz I woke up in the middle of the night to un-eat the pizza, and he was sick the next day)

Saturday April 10th:
-Went out to eat: had 2 ‘scones’ with honey butter, cinn/sugar and frosting (in UT scones=fair food, fried dough etc) and bacon!
-Made Apple Pie – Ate 1/4 with vanilla ice cream
-Took a huge nap (so I wasn’t eating~oops)
-Woke up and DBF had brought home dinner: 2 Gyros
-Ate other 1/4 of the pie w/ ice cream
-Snacked on things I cannot remember – cheese probably….

UGH! ~ The point was to eat a TON of FAT~!

So by Sunday Morning I had gained 8lbs!!

But I can honestly say that this diet has been SUPER easy!… I don’t really get cravings, but I do get envy… like, oh man I wish I could eat that (insert non-diet fod here)… But the more I think about it the more I am like “why do you want that”? do you NEED it? Is there something nutritional you’ll gain? Will it still be there when I am done dieting? Would I want to eat that much anyways?”

And mostly the answers come back: I just WANT it…. Nope, I do NOT need it…. NOTHING nutritionally gained that could not be gained with something less caloric… It will always be available, there is more at the store, who cares if it is free now, if I STILL want it in a month I will pay for it…probably wouldnt want the whole thing anyways, deserts lose their excitement factor after the first few bites anyways….

So Far I am Down 16.2lbs (including the pounds I gained)….

Oh, and I lost an inch & a half off my waist already! WOOT!!

Which method do you use: injections, sublingual drops or homeopathic?homeopathic Drops…. .5cc – 3 times a day under your tounge

Where do you obtain your hcg? I use DIY HCG … it is a website that my coworker got her drops from and it worked for her….

How happy are you with the program?So far I have been really pleased… I don’t mind the diet and I am rarely hungry… your body naturally burns 1500-2000cals a day regardless of activity level, so by only eating 500cals a day you’ll burn 1/2 a pound/day, with or without the HCG… the cool past about the HCG is it really keeps you from being hungry…

 What if any side effects have you had? No real side effects to report… no headaches (which i thought i would have since i was ADDITCED to diet coke)… no hunger… I have been having a few breakouts, don’t know if it is diet related, but I ‘cheat’ on the diet and use a clinique anti-acne product…. i dont know if it is really cheating or not, but it hasn’t had an effect on my weight-loss…. oh and i drink A LOT of water, so lots of b-room trips
Were you skeptical or did you know someone who tried it out first? I was VERY skeptical… and amused by the literature behind it that was very anti-“the man” and his chemicals that make us fat…. To me weight loss is mathematical… calories consumes – calories expended = weight loss/gain … I knew I could eat the foods allowed so might as well try and see if the HCG really would make me not hungry… it’s working great so far!


How much have you spent on dosings and supplies?I bought a food scale from Target ($4.99) and a digital scale ($20.98) both with a gift card…. The HCG I bought was 1oz for $40, 2oz for $75 (+$20 wyb the book) so $135 total… you need a little more than 2oz for 40 days so I bought the extra bottle… I figured I would probably do another round, plus I want to have extra so I can increase the dose a little if I need to…

Do you have a cooperative dr or are you having to go it alone?Did not want to pay to visit a doctor, so I am doing it alone, but my coworker is on her 2nd round so she is very helpful…

3 Items

We packed 20-30 items (picture included) to return to Andrew’s little brother… He left them in Utah last year and now they are FINALLY getting out of my house!!

My HCG Diet ~

So an update… I ORDERED MY DROPS!!! Yep they are offficially on their way….

I plan on doing a 45 day run… you need a little bit more than 2oz for that amount of time…. I got a 2oz bottle that came with the “HCG Weight Loss Cure” book… together it was $90… and I got an extra 1oz of drops for $45…. So total for 3oz and a book was $135 or $144 with shipping…

This is the same site that my coworker bought her drops from, and she said they deliver quick! So I know they will be here after Easter!…

My plan is to do my 2 ‘loading’ days April 9th and 10th and Start my Very Low Calorie Diet on Sunday April 11th! That way I should be done with phase 2 before my Boyfriend’s Birthday in May… and should be done with phase 3 by the 4th of July!

I have the extra HCG so that I can do a second round in July… I figure if I lose 20lbs on my first round that will be great! If I can lose the max of 35lbs I will still want to do at least another 21 days…

To buy another 2oz bottle without the book is only $75, so to complete 2 rounds should only cost $210!!!! And that is with the book to keep track of everything… A Lot of people reccommend having the book to keep you on track and refer to when you have questions about what kinds of foods can be eaten (esp in phase 3).

Wish Me Luck!!

The link below will take you to the site where I got my drops… I will keep you posted on how well they work for me! But they did work very well already for my coworker Mary!

730 Things in 365 Days…

So I found this post and decided I liked the idea of de-cluttering via challenge… and funny enough, we had actually made a pretty large donation in January of things that Andrew did not need anymore as well as some of my clothes… I will have to find the donation reciept for the exact numbers and catch up later.

Last night we took a huge load of stuff over to donate which I am counting towards Feb since we had it all packed up and in the car on Sunday…. Here is what we donated:

1 – Couch Slip Cover
8 – Fitted Sheets
7 – Flat Sheets
14 – Pillow Cases
1 – Alarm Clock
5 – Tank Tops
4 – SweatShirts
7 – Jeans
1 – Laundry Sorter (too big for us!!)
1 – Cordless Phone (we use our cells)
1 – Towel
1 – Pair of Dress Pants
4 – T-shirts
1 – Mug
Total: 56 items… which works out to 2 a day by pure chance I swear!!

Plus I have a bag of roughly 10 items to consign this month (so they’ll count towards March)… and whatever is not bought by the shops will be donated so they wont be coming back into the house!


Also, I am mostly only counting non-trash items for now… it is much more tough to track the trash since you don’t get a receipt! haha!

Skinny Pants – Day 10

Ouch… big delay in posting! I know….

Well, my grandfather who had an aneurism on Feb 4th passed away this past Saturday… so drama apleanty for me… I accepted that he was going to pass over a week or so ago, it was more of a ‘when’ rather than an ‘if’ for me emotionally… don’t get me wrong, I was rooting for him to recover, but I was at peace with this going either way…

Though I am not hysterical over the loss I find that the sadness creeps into other parts of my life… something that would usually just upset me, (like having to return a bookcase to a store 20 miles from my house rather than the one 5 miles away because the CS Mgr was confused on their return policy) will bring me to tears…

Thank god for Andrew… he has been beyond amazing the last few weeks… my house has returned to its pre-Andrew-move in condition and he has helped me through all the emotional stuff…

And diet wise? Well Sunday I weighed in at -4lbs! YAY!!

Goals for the near future:
-Drink More Water
-Add salads to the daily diet

Feels good to get this off my chest… 🙂

Skinny Pants… Day 2

Day 2…. I know, I skipped posting on Day 1, but oh well…

Let’s see, where to start… I have been saving a ton of money with coupons lately but I have gained 35lbs since this time last year!!! 20lbs since I met my wonderful boyfriend who I love to death! How unfair for him!

To be fair to me though, last year I was at school, walking to class… Past the gym everyday, so it was easier to get in… Plus a BIG one is that I stopped taking 4 prescription drugs when I met my boyfriend… They were ‘mood altering’ drugs, and I had decided that I was ready to let my brain manage itself without pills… Presto-chango gained 20lbs!! It probably wasn’t all due to the meds but they were tested as having resulted in appetite suppression–>weight loss for the majority of patients….

Anyways… I have got to lose the weight…. Let’s say 37 pound… and the sooner the better…

At a rate of 2lbs per week… That would take 18 weeks… Or 4.5 months… Putting me darn near the first of JULY

Honestly, if someone told you that you’d be at your goal weight by July wouldn’t you sign on?

The longer I wait… The longer I stay plumpy!!!

Walgreens – Pepsi

Went a bit crazzzzzzy with the pepsi @ Walgreens over the last 2 weeks…

We dont know where to put it all…

That’s like a tower of 14 12-packs… plus there are 3 IN the fridge and 5 at work (my boss gave me $20 for drinks)…

Over all I spent $40 of my own money and got $30 in RR…. we rolled them last night using the blink tears, lip gloss, zicam, and joint juice freebies… and I still have $20 in RR left…

Sad thing is I am thinking about getting another 7 cases ($21 with $10RR back…) Tough to Pass on…

Walgreens and Rite Aid 1.31.10

So… I was out of town for tues-fri of last week so I had to catch up on my shopping Sunday…

Rite Aid had my favorite laundry detergent – GAIN’s Apple Mango Tango – on sale for $4.99 down from $8.99… So I used one of my 3 $20 Gift of Savings certificates to stock up…. heck yes!

Might get more… i can’t decide 😦

Anyways… Everything in the picture was bought for $17.77 out of pocket… including tax!! I added all the savings, and without factoring in sale prices the total value of the mechandise was $120.67

So I paid 14.7% of the retail value… AND will be getting back $9.99 in RA Rebates… woot! That’s like paying 6.5% of retail… or just paying the TAX…

The door in the background is closed… Andrew was sleeping! What a suprise to wake up to candy!! We went out for more later last night… bought an additional:

2 joint juices
2 blink tears
5 lip glosses
2 newspapers
12 toblerones
2 reeses

And paid: $6.35 + lost $10 in RR
For: $126.51 in merchandise… or 5.02%
