Mission Skinny Jeans Week 4

Here we are week four of my hCG diet. Did it work? Hell to the yes! I had a weight-loss goal of 25-30 lbs in 40 days. Well, I went to my doctor this morning for my weekly weight in and I ALMOST made it. It has been 30 days and I have lost 22.5 lbs!! On the hCG diet, if you are doing the long regimen (40 days) you can become immune to the hormone. And that is what has happened to me. So I am ending my hCG regimen 10 days and 8 lbs early :( However, I could NOT be happier with the results I got in the 30 days I was on the diet! I mean 22 lbs in a month? Word.

If you remember from here, the reason I did the hCG diet to begin with was because of my PCOS and the inability to lose ANY weight on my own. So, my doctor sent me for an ultrasound this morning after my weight in. Guess what? I have 5 cysts!!! FIVE! Thats it! At the beginning of this journey I had "too many to even count." Now FIVE! This is GREAT news because it means that the weight-loss really helped my PCOS. Which also means, that 8 lbs that I still want to lose? I should be able to do it on my own, no problem! YAY! 

hCG Diet - Week Four
Weekly weight lost : - 5.1 lbs
Total weight lost : -22.5 lbs
Weekly inches lost : - 5.75 in
Total inches lost   - 21.75 in
Bust : .5 in (2.5 in)
Waist : 2 in (4in)
Belly : 1 in (6.5in)
Hips : 1 in (5.5in)
Inner thigh : .5 in (2.5in)
Bicep : .75 in (1in)
So, from here I start my 3 week maintenance period. Starting today I will have 2 days of no drops but still the VLCD (very low calorie diet) of 500 calories a day. Then Saturday, I will up my calories to 1500 calories a day, no carbs no sugar, for the remaining 19 days (still no drops). After that I can resume a normal diet. Hopefully a healthy one :)
