Hodge Podge

Dr. Oz just endorsed the HCG diet so long as you are under a doctor's supervision.


Personally, having used HCG during infertility treatments, I never found it to have much of a weight loss effect.

Instead it inflated my boobs well into the DD range and made every pregnancy test I took positive.

So if you want huge boobs and a false positive on a pregnancy test, knock yourself out. But actual weight loss? I don't know about that. It's probably due more to the 500 calories a day diet than the HCG injections, but what do I know?

Also, for anyone who wants to lose weight without hunger--something Ozzie has referred to several times but without offering a solution--low carb, low carb, low carb. Or Paleo if you want to be more PC about it.

I have lost 1.5 pounds to date. Which is nothing. It's in the bobblehead range of my regular day-to-day weight fluctuations. I won't be impressed until I've lost at least 5lbs and have blasted through to new numbers I haven't seen in years. Until then, meh.

There has to be some physiologic something at play here. It's not me. I'm doing all the right things and have been for several weeks now and nothing.

I want to scream. Especially after trying on the jeans I have that are the next size down. Yikes.

That was frightening.

Not to mention demoralizing.

180 squats. That's how many I'm doing.

Plus cardio.

And naps to support the effort.

And only 1.5 lbs down.

My body does not work.

  1. Do a couple of squats for me OK? If I did one I wouldn't be able to get up!


Thanks for your comment. I read all comments and do my best to respond to questions, usually in a new post.
