I cannot write this in chronological order, although I want to start back when I finished my first hCG protocol. I have been able to maintain the 19 pounds lost and have lost a few more, even through the holidays. It took me awhile to do maintenance right. At first there was a gain of about 6 pounds. I put my trusty Bodybugg back on, started journaling my food, and downloading calories burned and was quickly back to 23 pounds lost. Someone asked why I stopped. I could have stayed on it for 40 days, and I was losing at the same rate. But there came a day when my body told me that she was ready to stop for that session. I wasn't hungry, although I was ready to put some yummy oil on my skin. I wouldn't have cared if it were Crisco! There are times I wish I had sucked it up and gone longer, but I am a big believer in listening to my body. And my doctor agreed with me.
I had a "visit" to the hospital 2 weeks ago. I mentioned to my doctor about the hCG diet when she asked if I had lost weight. She said that a lot of the doctors and nurses are doing it with good results.
I am back to the part of my maintaining that includes Miss Jenny's husband locking the freezer that is in the garage. I will include pictures of one unorthodox way of refusing to gain.
I will do another entry to bring this up-to-date, which is the real reason that I have neglected so many things in my life, including my blog. My life has turned bleak and grim. I wish I could go back to a time when my worst problem was losing weight. I wish I had treasured the days better.
