I have successfully completed the 7th day on HCG. In that first week I have lost 11 pounds. Last Tuesday morning I weighed 240 lbs. This Tuesday I weigh 229! It's going to be way more of an incentive now that I'm in the 220's. My weight had been bouncing around in the upper 30's for months. It's going to be nice to get some new numbers on that scale.
I have a whole closet full of clothes I grew out of. My lowest weight in 2008 was 207 from a high of 256. From there on it's been a continual gain with lows and highs but ultimately it was the highs that stuck.
I had decided last week that there was no way I was going to do another round of this when this round is over, but yesterday and today so many of the intense cravings are gone that I am rethinking that. The diet just got so much easier the 6th day.
We have an Hcg diet support group that meets at our church. I did not want to join it because I was so adamantly against this diet and now that I did the diet I'm not sure I want anyone to know! It's all about my pride, I guess. But now I'm feeling in huge need of support. I feel like I just want to be reassured that I am not in this alone. I joined a support group online but it is not enough.
The meeting is tonight. I must make up my mind about it today.
