It's official, I am shrinking. I am on day 12 of my diet and I have lost 16lbs so far. Living on 500 calories is very difficult. No cheating is killing me. I have promised myself that I will give myself this one gift. A 100% no cheat 26 day diet. Ok, I have cheated. So far I have allowed myself 2 frosted flakes, one small slice of green onion and one small spoonful of rice. I've decided not to count them, I only mention them here so as not to be a liar. These HCG drops are something else. I am not physically hungry anymore but the mental issues are overwhelming. Yesterday I woke up crying from a dream about bread. I am irritible and weak. I can still walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes without too much whining but to lift weights at this point ...no. I won't even try. I cry easier than normal, which is pretty darn easy now. With all that said, would I suggest these drops to my friends who need to lose weight? Yes.

what are HCG drops? Where do you get them?

I\'d love to know! I put on weight after my son passed. I could only eat comfort foods, meaning rice pudding mostly. I\'d love to get rid of these extra pounds.

thanks!

Now Colleen, you know that is not a healthy way to lose weight. You need to listen to your body. The ole gal is trying to tell you something.
What are HCG drops? I don\'t really need anything but my jaws wired. The drops probably would not do me any good, because I am doing what I call \'Grief Eating\'. Seldom am I hungry when I am cramming my mouth full of food.

Congrats. My son and daughter in law just got off that diet a few weeks ago. They went to Olive Garden to celebrate. Probably not the best idea but sometimes you have to give in to those cravings just like the frosted flakes. Only two? You\'re too cute. Keep up the good work. Love Robin

I get the drops from my personal fitness trainer. She uses them too. I suppose you could find them on line somewhere.
