    Dawn...how did you do on openning the ampuole?

    I have the HuCoG brand, and I would have saved my self a lot of worry if I had opened up the box! There is one ampule in there, but I have the metal cap type of hCG rather than the glass ampule, so it was easy!

    Now, dealing with the moody 1 ml syringes was another story :wink:

    Hey, when I get mine built I will share :)

    I am slow though, because I am way overloaded with projects at the moment. Keep your data and then you can input after I get it done.

  • hcg dosage   13 years 48 weeks ago

    I am trying to eat, really I am! But it just sticks right and doesn't want to go down. :shock:

    I have been having small meals all day with as much good fat as I can work in. Avocado with everything! Olive oil drizzled over or raw butter. Tonight I am making my family's favorite potato dish-basically a few potatoes with cream, butter, fresh rosemary, and LOTS of parmesan and asagio cheese and serving that with wild caught salmon fillet (smothered in butter!). Broccoli from the garden (the last of it!). You guessed it . . . smothered in garlic butter!. I am taking leftovers of all of this to my classes tomorrow (I teach knitting). Whatcha think?? Am I loading enough? I can hardly get it down!

    One thing is for sure, I am thirsty as all get out and drinking water like a fish!

    Hugs to you both! I guess this makes us the 3 Musketeers or something, eh?

    this is flgranny and I don't have ampules for the hcg. The only ampule I have is the saline one which I discard because I am using colloidal silver to mix with the hcg.

    I posted on the hcg discussions forum ..am starting today.

    Thank You Dawn...I totally forgot about measurements; so I'm off to do mine right now.....& the recording is a great idea. I wish I new how to do spreadsheets..jotales

  • hcg dosage   13 years 48 weeks ago

    flgranny33......happy to see you starting. so us 3 are on the same days but I am taking the homeopathic HCG. My B/P is up today so this will be i nteresting. I'm feeling sort of full but can't say I had to force myself to eat. Having touble getting the water in. Good Luck to Us! jotales

  • Restarting Again!!!! II   13 years 48 weeks ago

    OK..so I started Day#1 of the loading days. Oddly my B/P was up today BEFORE I took the HCG..wondering if it had to do w/ the food I ate yesterday. I ate some of the wheat breadsticks....before my HCG di et and I had been off wheat for awhile. took my medicine and then the HCG and my B/P never went down as usual. SO I will have to monitor this.

    Read LeAnn's blog...she is not losing much. 2#'a in a week, though I don't think she has alot to lose.

    Dawn...you start today on Loading. this will be interesting.

    LeAnn...did your HCG injections ever arrive?

    How's everyone else doing?.........jotales

  • hcg dosage   13 years 48 weeks ago

    o yeah..you're right..it's 30 ml. I forgot about the B12.

    I too had problems mixing. I put in 15 ml of air and it should have been 30ml. You'd think I would know..I am a lab tech from way back!!! :oops:

    So far today..I have had fatty foods but I am stuffed and am very warm..almost like a fever but not one. The same thing happened when I took fucothin..it revs up the metabolism. That's good tho, right??

    Still have to eat dinner and I do need to drink more water.

    Talk to you tomorrow and we can compare notes.

  • hcg dosage   13 years 48 weeks ago

    Flgranny33-

    I mixed mine up almost the same. I also ordered the 10,000iu and I am using the Enlita recommendation of 166iu twice daily as well.

    I mixed up 30 ml though: 1 ml of CS to reconstitute the hCG, 28 ml CS added to that in the mixing vial, and then 1 ml of B12=30 ml.

    I will take .5 ml 2 times daily (approx 12 hours apart), and if my mixing procedure had gone smoother, I should have 30 days of dosing. I am thinking I will be happy if it lasts the minimum of 23!

    Glad were all on board together!

    I reviewed the HCG Supply Checklist:
    you need a scale that measures as low as 0.2# BUT the scale rx. at Amazon actually measure as low as 0.#. Have yet to get one.

    I was going off of Dr. Pearsall's recommended scales in the handout. Both of those go down to .1 increments, but I am sure you'll be great with the one you have! I sure wish I could have spent less on one, but after not owning one in over 3 decades, now I have a nice one.

    I started the hCG today!! Weighed, measured, and logged all the info. It didn't go as smoothly as I expected, mixing the hcg, but I think it will be fine the next time.

    Hey jotales..I started the hcg today. I am now going to eat my lunch and will let you know what happens as I go along.

    Dawn,
    I am not measuring myself. I can tell if it is working by how my clothes fit and by the scale.

    ok, have to eat and then pick up kids from school. Not much time today to talk. Bye

    Thank you! That is exactly the kind of feed back I was looking for!

    Re:

    Hello Dawn,

    You may want to include the actual measurements along with the +/- column. For consistency, try to always measure at the same level and the same side of the body. For example, if measuring the thigh you could measure either 4 or 6 inches above the top of the knee cap.

    When tracking body measurements, I generally include: neck, upper arm, chest, waist, hips, and thigh. Other columns could include bowel movements and symptoms (good energy, hungry, etc.), depending on how much time you want to spend on this.

    I hope this will be a source of accountability and encouragement for you.
    All the best!

  • Acai Berry   13 years 48 weeks ago
    Re:

    There have been several fruits from South America and rain forest regions that have received a lot of press in recent years. Acai is one of them. It's publicized to contain high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients.

    Antioxidants help protect us from free radical damage, which is linked to chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer. Antioxidants are also important in detoxification. (Please refer to week 15-16 in Enlita's lessons for more information on free radicals and detox).

    So the fruit is not a "silver bullet" for weight loss, but the compounds within it (along with many other vegetables and fruits!) provide nutrition needed to support healthy body functions, reduce inflammation, and promote the body's natural detoxification pathways.

    1/2 cup is chopped. Does not matter is raw or steamed.

  • Phase 4 Question related to tonights HGC   13 years 48 weeks ago

    Phase 4 is after the HCG protocol is completely done and you eat a normal healthy diet. Yes you can lose weight after the protocol! The HCG simply makes it faster and easier. Simeons recommends not losing weight during the Phase 3 of the low-starch diet. It is a kick start and I think you can continue to lose weight on your own. But if not, you can always repeat the protocol.

  • EMOTIONAL EATING QUESTIONS   13 years 48 weeks ago

    Wonderful! Do them often. And use EFT whenever the snack attack arises. Practice EFT daily.

  • EMOTIONAL EATING QUESTIONS   13 years 48 weeks ago

    The non-food things that bring me pleasure: planned outings with friends and relatives, professional meetings at work and association meetings in the evening. Plays & concerts. Reading. Walking in the woods and metroparks. Waterfalls. Being outside. Sitting in my yard. Just doing nothing but thinking/planning.

  • EMOTIONAL EATING QUESTIONS   13 years 48 weeks ago

    I know it is strange. I wish Simeons was still alive so I could grill him on his strange advice. Just wait and see what happens.

    You are definitely craving sugar if you are raiding other people's desks.

    The intense desire for baked goods can indicate a wheat allergy, a serotonin deficiency or a strong association of baked goods with comfort and pleasure.

    Also you have a strong pairing of snacks TV. It is like Pavlov's dogs. It's a tough association to break.

    What are all the non-food ways that bring you pleasure in your life? or are you lacking enjoyment which is why you are turning to baked goods and sweets?

  • EMOTIONAL EATING QUESTIONS   13 years 48 weeks ago

    I find that I want to eat snacks while watching TV. I don't watch that often but find that when I do, I want popcorn, chips, cookies, chocolate, cheese & crackers, etc. -- anything but healthy vegetables, fruit & meat as I don't think of them as snacks and don't want to eat them.

    I work full time. I get snack attacks at work. Because I don't have chocolate or cookies at my desk I raid other workstations for candy, cake or cookies. I do have Enlita's Organic Trail Mix and organic rice crackers & organic almond butter to snack on, but I don't want that. I want something forbidden and there is plenty of candy around here. I don't believe I am craving sugar because I only use stevia and, rarely, raw honey & organic maple syrup for cooking. I don't even have cane sugar in my home.

    My biggest weakness and craving is Baked Goods. I believe that I could eat only that for a few days straight. If I bake, it is with stevia and that's OK. As long as I am eating baked goods I am happy.

    I don't understand the no weight loss during Phase 3. Of course we will lose weight if we cannot consume sugar and starch. Not eating starch contributed greatly to my initial weight loss when I began the Enlita program.

  • HOMEOPATHIC HCG TELESEMINARS   13 years 48 weeks ago

    I changed the kit but both Liver remedies are comparable.

    No you can take less to space it out but that is my opinion and other homeopathic experts beleive one should take more so I am publishing both.

    Yes you can still make them last. Some people would rather have the certified remedy rather than try to make their own but there are no retractions to what I've said previously.

    Homeopathy and healing is an art and a science. There are no hard rules with homeopathy when it comes to dosing and remedy selection.

  • EMOTIONAL EATING QUESTIONS   13 years 48 weeks ago

    I think your ego (the devil on your shoulder) can make you self-sabotage any time your higher self (the angel on your other shoulder) tries to do good. People like to be free and not have to follow rules. Your inner child wants to eat whatever it feels like and not be "deprieved".

    "Even though I want to sabotage myself, I deeply and completey love and accept myself."

    I'm feeling like I don't want to follow this program...
    I have a craving for junk food...
    I fear I won't succeed so why bother?...
    I want to eat whatever I want...
