A little over 10 1/2 months since I finished phase 3 and went into stabilization mode.
And...drum roll please, I am a mere 1.8 pounds from my goal weight...49.9 lbs. lost as of this morning! Go me.
I admire so many who do multiple rounds...I just did the single round (from Oct. 2-Nov. 14)...losing 25.3 lbs. and 39.75" overall. After completing three weeks of Phase 3 to the letter, I have been been in Stabilization mode. Though the protocol says you can be more flexible with your food choices and such, I still drink in excess of 1 gallon of water a day and avoid sugar, pasta and bread. I do like partaking of the occasional glass of champagne or a dry martini (a glance at the vermouth bottle does it for me...smile), and even with that, I've dropped an additional 24.6 lbs. and am down a total of 51.5" overall.
Thank you HCG for changing my life. I feel and look (if I do say so myself) great for a 49-year-old.
