Remember when I said hCG was expensive? I think I have paid for it by not eating.
Last night a friend was driving through and wanted to meet for dinner in Indy. Bill and I met her at a pizza joint [ Bazbeaux Pizza - which I'm told was amazing!]. I ordered a Greek salad with the feta and dressing on the side, I didn't know it also came with a generous amount of cheese as well. It took awhile to pick the cheese off- but it gave me something to do while waiting for everyone else's pizza to come. I asked for water with lemon and squeezed the lemon over the lettuce. It was rather large and I was quite full when I finished it.
The instructions for these drops suggest waiting until after a woman has her period to start them. Men – it doesn’t matter! But I didn’t wait. So as I approached my cycle I spent a day cramping, bloated, and nauseous. I don’t know if it had anything to do with the hCG, but it wasn’t a fun day. I’m better today – except that I gained almost a full pound! According to the web site that can happen with water retention during this specific time of the month - I’m thinking I let too much cheese slip by in my salad.
So now I’m on day 16, 14.1 pounds gone, ¾ of an inch from my arms, 5.34 inches off my waist.
