Hi all. So, I was super excited to start this protocol and I began giving myself injections on my first loading day last Monday. Switched over to vlcd 2 days later and followed it to a T. By Friday I had already started to cheat! I have been hungry. Really really hungry. And my doctor tells me that I shouldn't feel hunger past the 2nd day of vlcd. The only thing I can figure is that I have not been giving myself the correct amount of hcg when I did my injections. I had trouble getting the correct amount into the syringe because of the air bubbles, and although I am a smart girl I could not get the hang of it I tell you! I have had days where I can make it through until lunch but when dinner rolls around BAM! I am in the car on the way to get fast food. This has been a HORRIBLE experience so far for me, and I'm really bummed about it. I convinced my doctor to let me change over to sublingual drops, which I am starting tomorrow morning, and I sincerely hope it makes a difference in the amount of hunger I experience going forward. Hopefully it will be none.
Because I have hcg in my system, I am assuming I should not start all over again? I am planning on following vlcd for the next 30 days, then go to phase 3, then back to phase 2 again because of the amount of weight I need to lose. If this is wrong or not a good idea, please let me know.
And please please do NOT tell me not to do this diet until I am absolutely ready, because I am. If it wasn't for feeling ravenously hungry every day I never would have strayed. I am desperate to get back on track and lose my weight. I just need some words of encouragement. TIA.
