Day 7 of hCG Diet

No joking, I got on the scale this morning and weighed in at 129 and 28% body fat. Just a week ago I was 138-140 and 30% body fat. A lot going on too with "life" and "stress" and I've still managed to stick to the program.

Today was my first day of intramuscular injection. I tried the subcutaneous injection yesterday in the abdomen and wasn't that impressed with how it "felt" physically all day. I was a little nervous about injecting myself in the medial glute with a 2 inch needle and I need to get the right size syringes because all I was sent by the pharmacy was insulin syringes that I can't change the needle on so I had to use what I had which was a 10 ml syringe (way to big!!) and because I am only injecting 0.125 ml I had to do it twice because the first time I couldn't even get the liquid out of the syringe!!! So this really is a learning experience for me. So learning lesson #1 for injecting IM I need to have the right size syringes and needles.

The injection itself was relatively painless. The medicine doesn't hurt at all - no burning or aching after injecting. I have not had a headache or felt nauseous all day. I actually have a bout of laryngitis so I stayed home from work and cleaned my house, did laundry, took care of little boys, and then had to do a bunch of driving to get a rental car returned and borrow a friends car and the weather here in Chicago was bad with a tornado watch and heavy rain during this entire episode.

Believe me, there were times during the day I thought about a glass of wine at the end of the evening. :)) But when evening came I really don't have any cravings for alcohol or food and can't wait to see what the scale says tomorrow morning!! My bodybugg says I walked over 10,307 steps today, I burned 2,186 calories and did 3.38 hours of heavy activity! If you don't know what a bodybugg is go to this link: http://www.bodybugg.com

So for lunch today I ate 100grams of chicken, 4 strawberries, a small persian cucumber and a italian plain breadstick. For dinner I ate 100grams of steak, 5 strawberries, 1 cup of spinach, and a plain breadstick,. Total calories just shy of 500. It's 9:26 pm and I do not feel hungry. My stomach feels flat and smooth. My energy level is really good. It actually is so good I have to make myself wind down. I could keep going!! I did the intramuscular injection today. This is a little bit confusing to get it down. There is a good website that helps break it down.

I have had lots of questions asking me what I'm doing and how is this working so well for you? I want to stress that following the diet is a big part of this and using REAL hCG NOT homeopathic and not oral hCG is also key. My counterpart is using the nasal spray delivery and tomorrow I will start him on the intramuscular injections and report to you if there is a difference to him. He wants to lose about 30 lbs and so far on the diet has lost 6 lbs. He started at 233 and is now 228.

Keep reading!! Sweet Dreams.
