So it’s February 21, 2013, and it’s been about 112 days since the end of my 5th round of HCG Injections – so almost 4 months now. And actually, my 2 year anniversary since I started my weight loss journey is tomorrow I think. I can’t believe it’s been that long.
I have been extremely stable in the 126-127 lb weight range for over 2 months now. I’m not eating low carb now- I’m eating very healthy but it definitely doesn’t classify as low carb. I just think that’s important to mention because sometimes I hear people claim that you have to eat low carb the rest of your life to maintain weightloss from the diet plan which is totally not true.
Every person’s body is different, and I don’t doubt that some individuals may need to eat low carb long term, but not everyone since I don’t have to. I get 3-4 hours of intense exercise a week, in the form of Crossfit, and I eat baked potatoes, rice, and rice milk, corn tortillas, refried beans (from the can), and fruit as carbs. Sometimes I even have 2 baked potatoes (with butter and full fat sour cream) in one day.
Some days I eat quite a bit of food, and some days I don’t feel as hungry and I eat far less. It has really varied, but overall, it seems to be working for me as my weight is extremely stable right now.
I am not counting calories, so I have no idea how many calories I’m taking in, but on the days I more, I’m positive my calorie range is somewhere between 2200-2700 I bet. I’m not a bird eater.
However, I do eat very healthy- even though it’s not low carb, I don’t eat any kind of refined sugar at all, and I’ve been 100% gluten free for 2 years now.
I like to make these updates now and then so that you can see the living proof of long term maintenance of a healthy body after Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is totally feasible, and not difficult.
Have a nice evening!
