I had planned on ending Round 5 of HCG Injections at the 3 week point, but after TOM (time of month) came and went, I felt much better (after feeling really crabby and yucky pre-period), so I decided to continue on Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.
As long as I can feel fairly well while on the protocol I have no problem continuing. It’s when I start feeling to unwell or too grumpy for too many days in a row that I start thinking that it’s time to get off the protocol for the time being.
Results from past few VLCD days:
VLCD 20 results: -1.4 lbs
VLCD 21 results: + 1.4 lbs (TOM- always gain water weight from TOM coming)
VLCD 22 results: – 1.6 lbs to 122.8 lbs
VLCD 23 results: +.2 lbs to 123 lbs
VLCD 24 results: -1.8 lbs to 121.2 lbs
So far I’ve lost 13.6 lbs total in 24 days, which includes the fact that I lost ground for a few days due to the 1 day I cheated on the diet this round (it happens you know?)
In the video I mention the weird observation that it seemed as if the hormone injections was affecting where I lost fat- almost like spot reducing. In retrospect, I don’t think that was occurring and I think it was just a fluke- so please ignore that part of the video will ya? Hey, a girl can dream can’t she? :)-
Lastly, my average weight loss for this round has been .5lb/day which is excellent considering that is the normal average weightloss for any woman on the Diet, and to still be losing this average when I’m getting quite tiny is great. I’ve lost so much in my hip and thigh area this round that previously somewhat large skirts (in the size 8 and 10 range) that I could still wear, just lower on my body, no longer can be worn at all- they just fall off they’re that huge.
