Starting Weight: 201.6

Today’s Weight: 175.2

Overnight Gain/Loss: -1.6

REAL HCG: 166 IU 2x daily under the tongue (Switched over from homeopathic on VLCD 44)

My weight is going back down! Hurray! Maybe all of the mistakes that I made this week are starting to correct themselves. Like I said yesterday, I messed with my dosage 4 days ago. I think that caused me to have headaches, fatigue, and fluctuations on the scale. Let’s see what happens this week!

I drank my gallon of water yesterday and added back in my 4 tablespoons of coconut oil in my chocolate bark. I also drank two warm cups of flavored tea last night.

For lunch, I had grilled chicken, asparagus, strawberries, and a breadstick.

For dinner, I ate chili made with 96% lean ground beef, tomatoes, and onion. I ate a breadstick with it. It was really good!

I drank my usual gallon of water.

NOT happy today! I had a 1.8lb gain over night! Holy cow! I dropped my coconut oil for two days, lowered my water slightly to 3 liters yesterday, and I dropped my 2nd fruit last night. hmmmm…….

I have definitely made a few mistakes. I started real HCG ony 9 days ago using 133IU 2 x daily sublingual). I decided to just go ahead and up the dosage 3 days ago to 166 IU 2x daily sublingual. It probably wasn’t the smartest thing to do. I felt tired and had a headache all day long yesterday. I woke up this morning still feeling exhausted, and the headache started again! ugh! I felt a headache after starting the real HCG, so now, I’m thinking that the higher dosage is causing this again! good grief!

I really hope that I’m not reaching immunity. boo hoo! I have about a week’s worth of real hcg left, and I don’t want to waste it. If this doesn’t pass by the end of next week, then I will be forced to go to phase 3. I’m really holding out and hoping that maybe I can make it to 70 days or so. I don’t know if that’s going to happen, though. Only time will tell!

I decided to start taking a few potassium pills today. I took one pill after lunch and one after dinner. I’ve been having a little bit of twitching in my muscles lately. It’s not real bad, but it’s kind of annoying. I’m not sure if it’s potassium or magnesium. I’ve taken some magnesium, so I’m going to try the potassium for now.

Lean Beef Chili with Strawberries and Breadstick

I had an awesome chili for my lunch today! I mixed my veggies! Not on protocol. oooohhhhh….. Anyway, the chili contains some chopped onion and tomatoes, lean ground beef, and seasonings. I ate it with a very small side of strawberries and a breadstick. It was such a nice change from my normal boring routine!

My weight is back down today. Yay! What a relief. I drank at least 5 liters of water yesterday as well as 2 cups of Dieter’s Tea throughout the day. I was bloated and miserable all day long. I feel great today! I’m still slightly bloated, but I think it might be a side effect of the real HCG.

REAL HCG: 133 IU 2x daily under the tongue (Switched over from homeopathic on VLCD 44)

Onion Omelet with Strawberries and Breadstick

Onion Omelet with Strawberries and Breadstick

I had a great lunch today. I ate 1 egg plus 2 whites. The original protocol says that you can substitute 1 egg and 3 whites, but I only had 3 eggs left. Time for another store run! LOL. I made an omelet out of my eggs and used chopped cooked onions. I ate my omelet with some strawberries sprinkled with 1/2 packet of Truvia along with my sesame breadstick. It was yummy!

Pan Seared Tilapia, Oranges, Salad, and Breadstick

My real HCG came in today, so I started sublingual HCG! Yay! Now, I can compare real HCG vs. homeopathic HCG and see if there is a difference in my body, so stay tuned!

I was busy today, so I threw together my wonderful cheesy mock apple pie YET AGAIN. LOL. I think this is day number 4 that I have been eating this stuff for at least one meal. With a combination of needing to go to the store and just wanting to eat this for a meal, I must be plain crazy! lol

Ground Beef, Onions, Miracle Noodles, and Bragg's Liquid Aminos

Ground Beef, Onions, Miracle Noodles, and Bragg's Liquid Aminos

I finally went to the store this afternoon, so I ate a normal meal! I decided to try out my first meal with Miracle Noodles. They are made of fiber and contain no calories. They are also very filling. Many HCG dieters seem to use them. This was my first try. I cooked chopped onions in 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Then, I added 100 grams of 96% lean ground beef, 1/2 Tablespoon of minced garlic, and 2 Tbl. of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. After rinsing and drying my miracle noodles, I added them to the mixture along with another 2 Tbl. of Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Miracle Noodles do not really need to be cooked, so I simply flipped them around in the beef and onion mixture for 1-2 minutes. I have to say that they were actually pretty good! It’s a different texture than a regular noodle and a little gel-like, but I could definitely get used to them! I didn’t even eat my bread or fruit for dinner because I was very full! They did a wonderful job of picking up the flavor of the Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Next time, I will post a recipe for this gem of an item!

Here’s my breakdown for the day-

Lunch:

113 grams of Daisy 2% cottage cheese (90 calories)

139 grams of apple (72 calories)

1 Wasa cracker (35 calories)

Lunch Total: 197 calories

206 grams of onion (82 calories)

100 grams of 96% lean ground beef (130 calories)

1/2 cup low-sodium fat-free chicken broth (7.5 calories)*not on protocol

GRAND TOTAL: 416.5 calories

Happy Fourth of July!!

Today’s Weight: 180

Overnight Gain/Loss: -.2

HHCG: 12 drops 3 x daily (I think I do better on a 3x daily dose.)

Well, I didn’t lose much today, but I didn’t get my water in like I should have. I only drank 2 quarts of water yesterday. That’s not good. I can really tell the difference if I don’t get my water in! I ate a double batch of chocolate bark again. I’ve been experimenting with it. I’ve actually eaten it early in the day (before 2pm). I seem to be having some good results with it. We’ll see if it keeps happening.

My family grilled hamburgers on our charcoal grill, so I ate a charcoal grilled lean hamburger patty with more grilled onions, strawberries, and a breadstick. Yes, it was the same meal that I ate for lunch, but my hamburger was grilled outside. Yum!

I’m losing weight SO SLOWLY this week! I’m really not worried, but it would be nice to see some bigger losses. I AM thankful that I’m still losing, though! I’ve been VERY hungry today for some reason. I made a double batch of coconut oil chocolate bark this morning and ate it before lunch! I ate eggs for lunch, which might not have been enough to fill me up. I also started on a brand new bottle of Homeopathic HCG. It could have been any of those issues that caused me to be hungrier than usual today!

As usual, I had about 3 large cups of coffee for breakfast…

Scrambled Eggs & Onion with Breadstick and Baked Apple

Scrambled Eggs & Onion with Breadstick and Baked Apple

I had a great lunch today. I made Scrambled Eggs & Onions. Cooked onions come out nice and sweet, and they really add a lot of flavor to scrambled eggs. It was a great lunch, but I’m not sure if it was bulky enough to fill me up. I was hungry a lot earlier today, and I wasn’t sure if I would make it until dinnertime.

Ground Beef & Tomato Mash with Breadstick and Tomato Slices
