ARGGG!

Hey gang. What a strange week it was. I hardly lost any weight at all. Sometimes, on the HCG diet, your body will become immune to its affects. The symptoms are that you stop losing and you get VERY hungry. It's the HCG that keeps hunger at bay, if it doesn't work, you're starving! If you skip one day a week of the shot, you shouldn't become immune. The day I skipped the shot all I could think of was McDonalds, doughnuts, Olive Garden...you get the idea. I thought I was immune now. AND, I hadn't lost weight--and I was doing everything right--in almost two weeks.

So I decided to do an apple day which usually gets you over a plateau. It didn't work. Needless to say, I was quite discouraged. I've joined a website called Happily Thinner After that's just for people doing the HCG diet. They suggest an egg day instead of an apple day, so four days after the apple day, I did the egg day. It worked. But the weight loss has been in ounces, not pounds. That's okay though, as long as I keep going down.

So, today I was at 159 exactly. I put on some jeans I haven't worn in ages, and damn (pardon my French) but I look good! Can't wait until I'm down to where I want to be.

I speak French too, but only sort of. I thought you were looking pretty darn good at the UVU conference.

The egg day sounds similar to what was recommended for me. They called it a Protein day. I haven't tried it yet because eating all that protein scared me. How many eggs did they tell you to eat throughout the course of the day?

hi, it's me! melissa c said...

You get 6 eggs. Three for lunch and three for dinner, but I found I needed a snack in the afternoon, so I had one then and then at 2 for dinner.

They say to hard boil them. It keeps you full longer for some reason.

If you want, you can use nonfat mayo or mustard and salt and pepper to taste. It wasn't bad, but see, I'm doing the HCG diet and I can only eat 500 cal a day. It's possible because the HCG keeps you from being hungry. I don't think you should eat just 500 cal otherwise.
