“"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out..." - Robert J. Collier”
It feels so good to have a free day. I must confess I was on the HCG diet for the past 23 days. I am done with it an moving on. I had 4-5 co-workers do it and I wanted to test it out myself to see if it was worth it. If you want to know the details of it read "Pounds & Inches: A New Approach to Obesity by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. In the 23 days I was on the diet I lost 11.8 pounds (only 6.6 lbs of fat). I cheated on the diet Super Bowl Sunday. Everything I ate on the diet was BFL approved but the like 1/3 of the calories.
Not hungry very often (excluding the first 2-3 days)
Lost 0.2 to 1.4 pounds a day
Lower blood pressure
Saved a ton of money on food
Did not go out to eat
I lost strength in my biceps and distance in my runing
I was unable to go out with friends or go out to eat
Almost half the weight loss was water weight (due to low sodium intake)
I went from 38in to 35.5 in in my waist (measure at belly button)
I ate way more fruit and vegetables than I had been eating
18.8% body fat
16.3% body fat
My autofocus was not working in the after picture.
I would only suggest/support this diet for someone who has over 40 pounds to lose.
It will be back to BFL 6 meals a day starting tomorrow

Saw your Halloween costume inspiration and wanted to chime in that I have a female Han Solo costume in the works to keep me inspired to stay trim :D
Quit World of Warcraft, Quit Diet Coke, Quit Processed foods, Started Body For Life and got healthy."DING!"
You made me laugh! Thanks!
I mean the picture in which you are looking at the skin in your belly! So funny!
You are making great progress, keep it up!
Live life with passion!
Shoshie - Nice costume idea!
MyDecade - I was not trying to be funny but it is my personality showing through. Thanks!
what an awesome look thru the years at your pics. It's like it went from fat party guy to more mature in shape guy. That last one doesn't even look like the same guy from 7 years ago!
