R5 Phase 2 Day 1

Weight - 151.6

Yes, I'm back.  I took a bit of time off and see what it gets me?  Well, 5 lbs of it was loading, but after almost 6 months of maintaining with a very very slow creeping gain here and there, I decided to get it off the best way I know how.  The difference this round?  I'm back doing homeopathic hcg instead of rx injections.  I still have vials of rx left, but I am noticing a trend on the forum I frequent of people who have done multiple rounds of rx having increasingly difficult times stabilizing and not regaining the further out they get.   I did well in my first two rounds with homeopathic.  I figure if there's damage to be done, it would be less with homeopathic than with rx.

So buckle up, here comes the ride!

  1. Hi Beth
    Wanted to tell you that I'm so glad you're back! I found your blog when I first started my R1 in May. I'm also in the greater Seattle area and have followed your blog since then. Like so many people, I have learned a lot from you along the way. As timing has it, the scale is creeping up and nothing else I experiment with is working so I'm going back into P2 tomorrow. Away we go!

  2. Beth, so glad to have you back. Missed your insights and posts. Also hope your son's surgery went well. I have just begun R5 p2 and I am thrilled. Too much holiday cheer!!!

  3. Michelle & Lisa.. nice to be in good company!

    Lisa - Zack is about 3 weeks out right now. He's doing pretty good, I think. Still has numbness in areas, but it can take a while for the nerves to get bad sending the signals they are supposed to. He feels good enough to overdo things at times which can set him back just a bit.

  4. Hi Beth, I am very happy to have found your blog! I lost 60 lbs last year on the HCG diet and gained it all back plus more. (Menopausal comfort eating...) I am starting again, today is my first load day. I felt this wave of relief when I started reading your recipes, they sound very good and there is no doubt I will be trying many of them

    Do you know of a closed/secret HCG support group on Facebook ? The ones I have found by searching are all open and I don't want everyone knowing my weight loss business.



    1. Christy, I am on a very friendly supportive private group on FB, made up of less than 200 HCG dieters. Private me on FB and I will add you!

  5. Christy,

    Welcome aboard. Happy loading. How about trying the forum at hcgdietinfo.com instead of a FB group?
