I'm not sure what to do with bit of information. I still ate the same as I have been yesterday. I still did the same routine as far as movement. I was not starving at any point. When I did eat, it was because I actually needed to because I was hungry, but not unmanageably so.
There is still Hcg in my system. I won't have cleared until after tomorrow. If it's still working, then yesterday was sort of just like a 'skip day' if I pick up where I left off.
I'm encouraged because I finally bumped down below 140 on the analog scale. Of course I'm still overweight by Wii calculations, but would be even if I were 139 on the Wii board.
I don't know if I could eek out a few more lbs. if I continued over the weekend, but I'm very tempted to try. I've lost all I gained while I was sick. I might be able to get down to where I was before our 'Winter of the Bizarre and Unpleasant' because it's not even another 10 lb., especially if the Tanita is indicating that I weight more because I have more muscle mass.
Really, I don't want to do this again. DH is already looking at bicycle pants for some really long rides he's planning for us. I can't do all the really active stuff we like to do if I'm on a 500 calorie program, though I guess I could play with it like I have been and see what happens.
But I don't want to pay for Hcg again since I have some now and it's mixed. If it's working, it seems silly to just toss it.
Hmm. I'll get back on this.
Well, it was decided for me only because I have a slightly superstitious streak and believe in the law of three.
I've given a lot of shots, both of B12MICs and Hcg; hundreds perhaps. In all these years, I had ever drawn up blood when I poked myself...until this round. This time, it happened twice not too far apart. I don't recall exactly, but it might have been in the span of a week or two...and then today. I decided that if it happened a third time, I'd consider it a sign. And it did today as I was debating if I wanted to do it again. And today I had a B12MIC and that one went fine. It was the Hcg that drew blood.
Not that it's a big deal or anything. You just toss the needle and draw a new one. But there you have it.
I just couldn't do it! In reviewing the last week or so (well, from the 10th) I'm down 2.4! If I quit now, I'll always wonder if I could have done better. So, I took the Hcg after lunch.
Granted, things could continue to be as wonky and inconsistent as they have been. I could screw up. But it's coming off! So, just a few more days.
I struggled with my weight for over 20 years. I tried everything to lose weight. Yes, I did 'eat less, move more' repeatedly, convinced that doing the same thing over and over would someone yield different results. Desperate, having diligently done all the 'right' things and being told by several doctors that there was nothing wrong with me except that I wasn't trying hard enough, in 2009 I tried what seemed crazy: Dr. Simeons Hcg protocol. I lost 85 lb.
