Hcg

A fellow chubby buddy coworker (as we like to call each other) decided to order some hcg drops. After discussing the diet with her I too got on board and ordered 26 days worth. I have recently lost 27 pounds but cannot seem to get past the same weight number and have gotten discouraged and have fallen back in my old routines. Fortunately for me I have not gained anything back. I decided that this would be a good way to get the remaining 30 pounds off.

I have heard so many great success stories with hcg. I hope I can join the others who have done so well. This is going to be a lot of work though. It will be harder than the last diet. It is so strict. Only 500 calories a day and basically just chicken, beef and vegetables every day. It is so strict that you can't even have mint because it counteracts the hcg. So goodbye gum and goodbye minty freshness toothpaste. I just received an email saying that my order was shipped and I should be seeing it in a couple of days.

My hope is that I can lose at least 15 pounds by time me and Shanna leave for California. I have always had to wear board shorts and a big tee over my swimming suit. I will never be able to just wear a swim suit but I would love to be able to wear shorts and a tank top. It is a small thing but somehow it would be so rewarding. I am hoping to get into a weight lifting routine for my arms to help this out. Of course, like last time I will update regularly. It helps me stay motivated if I have to report to the blog.

Your support and hcg success stories would be appreciated. This is going to be tough but I know it will be worth it in the end.

Much love, Linds

If I were in Utah, we could be work out buddies. I hope you do well with this diet... I could eat 500 calories in one snack, good luck!

That is so great you have lost 27 lbs. Sorry I dont really have any stories with hcg I just know a lot of people who have done it.

Em and I started the HCG diet this week. The drops help kill the hunger cravings. We are on day 3, so only barely ahead of you. Hope we all have great success. Just a side note: Where you have been dieting make sure you gorge the first couple of days to build up your fat stores. (I guess you should already know that, as it is part of the diet plan)

Lyndsay, we really should be buds. I think I have tried every diet except this one. Alot and I mean alot of my friends in Utah did it and the pounds came off so fast, it was crazy. This was last year. As of this year, in all honesty, they have all gained it back. So really try to prepare yourself for when you are finished using it. I went to the dietition for HCG last month and backed out after being told how specific it was. I did however go with the Phentermine which I have used about 10 years ago.(LOVE IT) You don't lose as fast as HCG, however, you totally forget to eat because you don't crave at all. I have to try to remember to feed the kids. I lost 12 lbs the first month and have just began the next month. Good luck to you and I hope you really wanted my true opinion on HCG because that's what you got.
