I am beginning a new round of HCG (today was my 2nd load day) and realized that not only am I nearly out, I don't know if I can get more from my supplier in time. So I've been looking at other brands of homeopathic HCG to see what my alternatives are.
I've been getting some good laughs reading the reviews. Remember - Homeopathic HCG has a vibrational fingerprint of HCG, so everyone who is used to the shots is screaming "Oh my hell, there's no HCG in that!" Of course not. And I don't care! I want to know one thing, and one thing only.
Does it work in conjunction with the Simeons Pounds and Inches protocol?
After reviewing several sites and brands, I have decided that nearly any brand will work. Don't freak out if it says "hormone free" - homeopathic does not contain anything but water. And that's OK, because it still works. I don't care if it's a placebo effect, I care if the scales are going down and my clothes are getting too big - and if I still feel good through the process.
Tomorrow I begin the diet itself. I've got chicken breast, apples, cucumbers, and lettuce waiting for me. After gorging for two days, I'm looking forward to eating what I know will work. Cucumbers are delicious sliced up with salt and maybe some hot sauce - just as good as chips! Apples with a dusting of cinnamon, perhaps a dip of stevia, strawberries dipped in a little stevia for a treat.... I am never hungry on HCG, in fact often the salad and protein are plenty.
I'd tried to do a few more rounds before, but just could not stick to the diet, mostly for emotional reasons, and ended up quitting within a couple of days. This time I have firmly decided that the last 40 pounds are coming off. I should reach that by Easter.
So far as the running, I'm struggling to get that done. I have come to enjoy running, but the added step of getting to the rec center seems to be more than I want to do right now. I did go yesterday, and I plan to go today. Last week I was so exhausted for some reason that I was sleeping 12 hours or more a day and just felt like I couldn't function. I don't know what the challenge was - last time that happened I was on vacation in Central America and fell asleep every time I was in the car, in addition to nights and siesta. I must have been pushing myself way too hard (which would also explain the shoulder injury).
I will report back tomorrow!
