Total Weight Loss

Making A Change

One afternoon late last week, 65MD came home with a weight loss plan for himself.  He had done his research and had a reasonable plan laid out before him.  He did not ask me to join him since he knew that I was doing well with my plan.  However, I really liked his plan, so I said that I would join him.

I'm not going to give any information about the 65MD Plan just yet.  I want to make sure it works for us.  I agreed to try it for 30 days, unless I started gaining.  After that time, and I have an idea of how well it works, I'll spill all the details.

It was a hard decision to jump ship.  I was doing phenomenal on the hcg.  I was losing the regain, which usually does slip right back off.  I knew once I got through that honeymoon phase, it would get hard.  I must say that while the weight loss has been great for the most part, hcg is a mentally tough way to lose.  It is so, so restrictive that it is hard to just go about life.  That reason pushed me over the edge to give this a try.  I can always go back to the hcg if this doesn't work.

As of Saturday, 65MD and I are using his plan.  I'm preparing myself mentally for him to race down the scales much more quickly that me.  It happened before.  I will be happy for him for sure, and come here and rant and rave about it.

For the record, I have lost a total of 51.2 lbs and 27.25 inches since I began this journey in March 2009.  I wish I'd taken more measures when I started, like my rib cage, and my abdomen (which is what I'm calling the space between my waist & hips).  I'm doing them now but I don't have a beginning figure for those areas so I can't say for sure how many more inches would be added to that figure.  Quite a few, I'd say.

Hopefully in mid-February, I'll be back with even more good news from the scales and the tape measure.


  1. Hope it works, and excited to hear about it! Yep, men's metabolisms make it MUCH easier & faster for them to lose weight. Bastids! LOL

  2. Men always lose faster than women. I am sick of allll the comments that my husband gets about HIS weight loss when we are together. He puts in 0% effort (seriously), and I put in lots and take forever to lose. LOL So is life. :)

  3. Congrats on having a plan to tackle, that puts you in a good place to succeed!

  4. great much success and glad you have a plan hcg just in case, always good to have a bakup! cant wait to hear how well you're doin! xoxoxoxo

  5. Best of wishes to you, Lori! And I SO feel you on the man losing weight faster. It simply isn't fair. ;P I tell my husband he has to give me a year's headstart. Ha.
