HCG Diet P4 Update
120 days since Round 4 of HCG Injections ended and holding! P4 is a blast I must say.
I’m excited to say that while I still don’t eat “sugar” in the sense that most people think of it, I eat a TON of fruit. I think the fact that I go to crossfit makes this more possible for me. But I’ve been almost living on figs lately. Also I’ve been having some alternative baked goods like rice flour, sorghum flour, etc. and maintaining my fat losses well.
I’m also still off all my thyroid medication. I don’t want to mislead anyone and say that Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is the sole cause of this because that’s not true. But it was certainly part of the picture that led me to being to recover my health in such a whole way. I used to take what’s called Cytomel or T3- it’s active thyroid hormone to replace what my body was not making. I took a pretty high dose too- 87.5mcg. But now I’ve been off it entirely since the beginning of March and I feel energetic and normal- that’s unheard of.
I just can’t believe how different my life is since I lost all this weight. I feel like myself again. I know many of you perhaps have never known what it feels like to be a normal weight. For me, I did experience this back in my mid-to-late teens. I was thin and fit and felt confident and felt like….well, just me. So now, to get back to my original shape I once again have those same feelings- confidence, comfortable in my body. If it’s your first time being thin in your life, you may have some different feelings than me.
What’s interesting is that when I was thinner, I used to love to wear black and more muted natural colors. As I got more overweight I found myself wearing brighter and more outlandish clothing in order to make myself look prettier and kind of “dress up” my chubby shell or perhaps to distract from it. Now as I get thinner, I find myself once again being drawn to black and more natural tones again. It’s so funny! What an experience this hCG journey has been. I’m so happy to feel like “me” again.
