As you've seen in my last blog the weight was just not coming off. I took drastic measures (as if the surgery wasn't enough) and started the HCG protocol. I LOVE IT!!! I am 6 days in and 10 lbs lighter!!! I think the RNY is actually benefiting me on this plan since I have my pouch and hopefully the malabsorbtion is still taking effect. I figure that after surgery I wasn't eating but 500 calories a day so how is this any different? I eat protein, fruits and veggies and still take all my vitamin supplements. I do feel hungry between meals but hopefully that subsides in a couple days. I only did 1 loading day so I've been told I will feel this way. It's so exciting to see the scale move finally after 5 months! I can already see a difference in my shape and usually that takes a good 20 lbs to be noticeable.
If you have a stubborn 25-40 lbs that you just can't lose, I have your answer and the magic bullet.
