Today started with my HCG dose at 175iu. I've been feeling hungry all day and tomorrow I plan to up my dosage to 200 iu. I have been trying to create a schedule for eating but the hunger has been difficult in deciding when I should have my meals. I had my 2L of water trying to help with the hunger but it seemed like it made things worse.

I feel somewhat deprived but I think the issue is not know what equal a serving of vegetables. I really need to research a HCG protocol serving size or I might not be able to make it.

I plan to weigh in after I visit the bathroom in the am but before I brush my teeth or drink anything.. I want to weigh in as dry as possible. I say that b/c that's how I weighed in this morning. I got on the scale again before getting dressed but after I brushed my teeth. I noticed I weigh more after brushing. Now I know why the say don't weigh yourself throughout the day. Your weight rises as you consume liquids during the day.

The protocla states that all load weight should be lost with in the first 48 hours of VLCD. Lets hope this is true!

My starting weight after loading is 187.8

My menu for today was:

Breakfast: 1/2 Grapefruit
Lunch: Onions, Chicken, & Melba toast
Snack: Golden Delicious Apple
Dinner: Shrimp and Spinach

That is my day in a nutshell.

Thanks for reading my blog and feel free to comment or ask questions.

HCG Load Day 1 and 2

Load day 1 was a bit of a mess. I waited until the morning of to mix my HCG knowing that I am not a morning person. Well, I mixed the HCG wrong. I mixed 2.5mls of bac water with 2000IUs of HCg. This wouldn't have been so bad had I realized my error prior to an injection. I did a .3cc injection and then noticed what I did wrong. Some of the wonderful ladies on helped me figure out how much that dose was and the remaining batch. I should add, I added 1cc of bac water to the remaining batch when I realized what I did wrong.

It turns out that that first injection was 240ius. The crazy thing was I had absolutely no hunger that entire day. This made trying to load extremely difficult and I can honestly say, a failure.

Load day 2 went better. I gave myself a 176iu shot and began to eat. This day I had an appetite and gorging was alot easier. Little did I know the amount of HCG was incorrect.

Load day 3 was a horror. It was supposed to be my VLCD 1 but I woke up ravenously hungry. I have not been that hungry in a long while. Ladies and I initially thought it was b/c I didn't load properly the first day. The hunger continued even after I started gorging. I ended up giving myself another shot to make my dose get as close to 200iu. It did bring a small amount of comfort later in the day.

In the end, I realized that I should take a 200iu dose and it is extremely important to load properly.

Intro to My HCG Journey...

Hello All,

I have decided to document my journey here and on youtube. I discovered HCG by accident. I belong to a hair forum that happens to have a diet section. I noticed a topic that said HCG diet. Well, me being the nosey person that I am decided to see what it was about and after some research, decided to give it a try.

I have tried almost every diet and pill out. The only one that has brought me success is Adipex aka Phentermine. Sadly, my body became immune to it within a couple of mouth but I lost 40 lbs from April to June. The only problem was the hunger...ugh

Anyway, back to my journey. I am documenting my journey for a couple of reasons, 1. to see what give me greater losses and the sake of motivation and 2. for my family and friends that are using me as the guinea pig. This way if anyone has something to say or questions I can refer them to my videos and blogs.

I am hoping this is the last diet I will ever have to "try"

So, check back often and "Watch Me Shrink"
