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.
