HCG Diet: Day 37-38, November 1-2

Days 37-38 on HCG

Weight: 145.5 lbs.

21 pounds lighter!!

Today is my last day taking the HCG drops... The next three days are going to be challenging. Doing the same low 500 calories, but no drops!!!

I am very pleased with the results. By the end of this week, my new weight will be set. I will run my BMI and if it is below 25, I will not need to do another HCG 500 calorie round to lose the last 10 lbs. I will do the 1000 calorie protocol along with HCG. I also will need to add resistance exercise for toning, and more interval training.

This will be the future project after a six weeks break, when I can eat all kinds of delicious foods except for sugar & starches.

Thanksgiving will be very special. I will be with my son, his wife, my grandson and my husband in "The Big Apple", all of us enjoying each other, sharing great food... and celebrating our success stories!!

HCG Diet: Day 35-36, October 30-31

Days 35-36 on HCG

Weight 146 Lbs. Yeah!!

Today I finally reached the 20 lbs mark... I am thrilled!!

By Wednesday, November 3rd, I will be done with my round of HCG. I will continue with the 500 cal. protocol for three more days until Saturday. By Sunday I will start my maintenance protocol for three more weeks.

During this phase I will be able to up my daily calories to 1500. I will be able to eat good fats, proteins, veggies, and fruits. Except for sugars and starches, the sky is the limit!!

I am going to monitor my weight every morning. If there is an increase of more than two pounds, I will have to do a steak day, where you only eat an organic steak and tomato, and drink lots of water and green tea.

I have transformed my body and mind during this process. I feel more grounded, positive, light and regenerated from the inside out.

God is good. I am thankful for all the support, and Divine guidance!

HCG Diet: Day 34, October 29

Day 34 on HCG

Weight 147 lbs.
Lost 2 1/2" around waist
Waist is 34"
Abdomen 32"

The inches are dropping, the scale is not moving as fast as I want, but I am happy to conserve my muscle mass....I love my hiking!

Yesterday there was a lot of activity in my house, so I went to Sonoma and got adjusted by my favorite chiropractor, Dr. Robert Adams. Robert and I went to Palmer College and graduated in June of 1987!

Sonoma is really picturesque town. It has great food, unless you are doing my protocol. I was really hungry, so I ventured to one of my favorite eateries... I managed to get steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and organic grilled steak..... I could only eat a very small amount of this huge steak.... David had dinner ready when he got home!

It is amazing how much money I am saving doing HCG. I always have to divide a portion of protein into two. I cannot eat the same protein for dinner that I have for lunch, so David gets the other half!

David has lost 36 lbs himself without HCG drops!!!! Bravo!

I was really comfy in my urban outwear. I felt like just enjoying the freshly clean house and the late sunny afternoon in my patio, while I patiently eat a delicious pomegranate. I have been craving this fruit lately.... It is not really allowed on the HCG protocol, but my body really needs its nutrients and antioxidants. Just following my body signals... and a small craving for something different from the three fruits is allowed!

HCG Diet: Day 32, October 27

Day 32 on HCG

Weight 147.5

After all the excitement of my Wednesday hike, on Thursday I took the dogs for a very invigorating hike around my neighborhood. I didn't see any mountain lions around, only deer and rabbits, thank God!

My weight keeps dropping. I need to get more consistent with weighing my proteins. I have been eyeballing the portion size when I go to restaurants.

Overall, my food is more variable and tasty. While in Santa Fe, I got in the habit of adding chile verde to my food. It makes fish filets and veggies more appetizing!

This weekend, I am preparing for my event at Pharmaca. I will be giving a presentation there on my HCG protocol... Very exciting! I will be telling people that there is a real "weight loss cure" available, and I am a living example!!
