My first round on HCG, I did lose an average of a pound a day. My boyfriend, Tim Boone, was a huge support at that time. He'd ask me what I was permitted on the protocol and took me to restaurants that would cater to my needs. He travels a lot for work, so I'd text him every morning with my loss of the day.
Accountability is important for any venture. If I don't show up for boot camp, Mat texts me to let me know that he noticed, and he checks with me to see if I've done my cardio.
That's really part of the reason for this blog. I need to hold myself accountable - to the entire Internet, if need be! - so that this next round will be as successful as the first one was.
