I knew when I stopped that my weight would drift up no matter what. I think the hcg must be a little dehydrating or something because there is always a bit of a bounce. I stopped the hcg weighing 201.8. I hung out there a couple of days much to my surprise. I actually thought I might defy the odds this time and actually no experience the bounce. Alas, I was wrong!! My weight crept up to 205.2 over the weekend.
While I didn't like this one bit, I didn't feel bigger. My clothes didn't feel tighter. In fact, I felt smaller and the dress I chose to wear on Sunday felt way too big. So, I measured my waist. It was down a full inch since stopping the shots! Two people in recent days have commented on my weight loss. (Both knew I was trying, but they wouldn't just say it if they didn't mean it.)
I know the scales are not an accurate measure of the changes going on inside. At the same time, I know I'm not replacing fat with muscle because my hip keeps me from doing much meaningful exercise at all! While I want to be under 200 lbs before surgery (and it is totally doable!), I'll take my clothes being looser and my friends complimenting my new smaller figure. The scales will catch up.
