Let Me Be Honest...

...Yes, I've starting a running program and have given myself a goal of the 5K in April. But, I have a confession. Last Saturday I met with a Nurse Practitioner to get a prescription for HcG and a diet protocol to follow. I need help with this weight loss and I don't have to do it alone!

I started the injections Monday, so today is Day 3. Monday and Tuesday I was to eat normally but eat foods high in fat (chocolate, fried foods, bacon, etc) to get the body into 'fat burning' mode. I had a few candy bars and pieces of chocolate that I had found stashed. After stuffing my face with scones, hamburgers, onion rings, fries, and chocolate, I honestly have little desire to eat anything else for the next week! I won't say my chocolate craving is totally gone. I think it's knowing I won't be able to have any for the next few months that leaves me nervous, but it doesn't have a pull on my right now.

A cousin of mine did this protocol and was not only successful, but encouraging as well. She told me she had more energy than she has had in a very long time and she doesn't feel hungry. The HcG makes the body use the stored fat as energy. Those were things I needed to hear. The more research I did, the more I was convinced this is safe and worth the effort.

So, Day 3. I'm not hungry. I have no desire to snack on anything. I just got back from running for the morning, and I feel great. I need to take a shower then I'll start straightening the apartment. If anyone has questions about this HcG stuff, feel free to email me at and I can give you information for the clinic in Amercian Fork, UT. Their prices are very reasonable!! :)

I signed myself and my husband up to run the 5K at the SLC marathon in April. :) I need the motivation, plus the proceeds go to the Huntsman Cancer Hospital. That's why D's running. Wish us luck!!
