but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly." - Buddha
#24 - 189 same (bit of a plateau I guess)
#25 - 187 (-2)
OK, so the long story short here is that if you choose to divert from the program, even for just an evening, it can take you up to 4 days to get back to where you were!
Think about it, Jun 25 was 187.5, today finally back down 187. Total so far in 25 days is -12.5 lb - which is great (avg .5 lb per day) in such a short period of time but...
Is it really worth it to cheat? Was it really worth it to stray. In my books, nope.
This program is only for 45 days and then 3-6 weeks of maintenance (to reset your weight point).
There's also a shorter program that runs for 26 days and then maintenance.
If after your program you want to reduce more, you must remain in the maintenance phase for 6 weeks, then start again with Phase I. This prevents the body from building immunity to HCG.
So Buddha; I've learnt from the past and have let that go, have my goal for the future and am aware of the pitfalls and am choosing to live in the present with passion.
Cheers to Your Health,
