It isn't like a sore throat either, just like something is stuck in my throat! I dont know... I am feeling a little discouraged, especially since I weighed myself at home, which i shouldn't have done... I gained two pounds. I am hoping that is just the water weight because I have not cheated one bit. I probably should make a pitstop to my center tommorrow. Anyway, Thanks again guys just reading your posts helps me out. I love having someone who knows what it is like both the good and the bad. Take care.
How many pills are you trying to swallow at one time. Maybe spread them out in between bites, that way you aren't downing just pills.
Make a point to only weigh yourself at a certain time of the day, and no matter what, don't get on the scale at a different time of day when you are at home. Your weight is going to flucuate throughout the day, and I like you get discouraged easily. So I stick to morning weigh in's on my home scale only.

Unhappy

Christy: I hope that it gets better for you. I hate taking the pills, but with the thought that they are supposed to help I take them. It will be worth it. I liked Goals idea of taking one pill in between each bite! I need to try that.

Now on with the self defeating behavior!

So I have been trying recipes from the MRC cookbook. Tonight I made one of their turkey vegetable meat loaves thinking it sounded good. I made it and it looked and smelled delicious!!! I took one bite, wanted to spit it out, but sticking to the two bite rule in our house had to take another bite. That was that. I thought it was nasty. So because I put so much time and effort into it, and it tasted like mushy dirt, I went and ate 2 cups of cornflakes. I mean I have never had corn flakes before, but they looked good and I ate them. Now I feel like crap because I did soooooo good by exercising this morning and it all went down the tubes. My husband said there were much worse things that I could of splurged on. It was 250 calories with the milk. No fat. 6 grams of sugar. But WHYYYYY!!!!!

P.S. the best time to weigh yourself is naked after you peed in the morning

Alexiah:
I do think the Relcore and Hoodia are helping. My midsection seems to be shrinking quickly (now if I can just direct Relacore to work on my bum and avoid the "sisters"!!). The Hoodia is keeping the hungry monster at bay.
I'm in the Southeast Metro area here, btw. You?

Hey ladies,

When you go and buy generic brands of different vitamins etc, do you buy every component seperately? Like the Hoodia Extreme. Do you also buy the cayenne, the gymnema sylvestre and the garcinia cambogia? Or do you just buy the Hoodia?

Thanks a bunch! Been researching alternatives for hours

Hey Christybean01,
I too had/have issues with all the pills. I have found that if I take the pills with my HNS they go down smoother. If I take them with water, I feel like they get caught in my throat. Have you tried taking b12 in the morning? Or some advil

alexiah- MRC Enhncancer worked best for me, for controlling hunger. Have a HNS anytime you feel hungry. You should only have 4 a day but if you're hungry and can stay on plan by having a HNS, this is good! I drink water but sometimes it's not enough.....HNS have few calories compared to Taco Bell!! Hang in there!

Briana -Water is water... try to drink as much H2O as Crystal Light - eventually you'll get to craving water, and it won't be an issue.

feelinbetter- I keep HNS in my glove compartment, and at my desk at work.

graduatethin- yep, just climb back on that horse and ride! You can't get too down on yourself...... tomorrow's another day.

CHRISTYBEAN01- The stuff in your throat is probably your body's reaction to protein/low carb. A lot of people have weird tastes in their mouths as well as feeling a little "off" when your body first gets into ketosis. I personally felt a sweet, slimy feeling in my mouth (which is gone now) at first and I couldn't believe they would tell us we can't use mouthwash! It'll pass, just wait it out. I take my pills with as much water as it takes, and I save my HNS to drink without pills. (It feels like I'm wasting HNS just to choke down some pills!) I'd suggest taking your pills two at a time and if that doesn't help, talk to the reps at your center.

I'm moving this weekend so there's bound to be pizza and beer again.......I've decided to have one slice of pizza and no beer... we'll see how that goes! wish me luck!!!

Thanks for you replies. I am up earlier today than most and having a little me time! I got on the scale, but still no change! BUT, today is a new day. I walked around long enough with this weight I am sure i will survive, especially knowing that I have made up my mind to lose it. I will try to spread out the pills a little better, I have just never had a problam with pills, but I will take them because I know they must be working. I will not step on that scale again today! You know, having a place to post your thoughts to others means alot. I know we share these thoughts of wanting to lose the weight and keeping our eye on the goal of feeling better about ourselves and most of all, being healthy. I need to look at that as the positive part of this whole thing. This is a lifestyle change, and obviously my body is trying to battle against it, but I will win this time! Thanks all. I wish you all the best day.

I do not take MRC-6. It is not a required supplement. I only take the required Flax, and I take my own dr. recommended multi-vitamin, and b6/b12/folic combo. Talk to your center about your reaction, and maybe they will refund you a portion, or let you swap out with another vitamin/supplement that you want/need. Alexiah, I didn't start any of the supplements until I was on my first menu, why did your center start you on everything during pre-conditioning? Seriously, pre-conditioning is just that, a time to slowly start eliminate those bad things from your daily diet, and trying to get those good choices from each of the columns into your body. You shouldn't feel so stressed on pre-conditioning.

Mine did start me on flax, Total Woman & MRC-6 during pre-conditioning - no doubt another of those differences between centers.

I just got the hoodia - something in MRC's hoodia supplement messes with my stomach if I take it on an empty stomach. I actually take all my pills after I eat anyway, so it's not a huge issue, but I figure it's the hoodia itself that's the actual appetite suppressant anyway, not sure what the other stuff is supposed to do (except that cayenne & other spicy stuff supposedly boosts metabolism a bit) so I didn't worry about it.

Alexiah,
I got to thinking about how you've always been a big water drinker & wanted to give you a heads up - don't be alarmed if you don't have a big weight loss in the beginning. Usually when people drop lots of lbs the first week or two, it's because they've been retaining lots of water. That probably isn't as much of an issue for you since you drink lots of water already. Just didn't want you to be disappointed if you go to your food instruction class (tomorrow?) & most people have lost more weight than you during pre-conditioning. It's just because they were carrying around more excess water than you. It'll all even out in the long haul.

Lilyanna'smom: It's the self-defeating behavior question that I keep struggling with. So far, it hasn't been bad on this plan. But I know myself all too well. Right now, I've lost my "widow weight" (what I gained when DH died). So now I'm at a weight that my friends, etc., are used to seeing me at. I know that, during the next 20 pounds, I will start to look different. When that's happened in the past and I start hearing "Wow! You're really looking good!", something happens and I start to sabotage. Sometimes it's a feeling of, "Well, then, I guess I can do whatever I want." Sometimes it's sort of a panicky feeling that I don't really understand. Maybe has to do with being the focus of attention. I don't know yet, but I'm trying hard to figure it out. Anybody else have these experiences or others like them?

Well I had my WI last night and I finally showed a loss! I lost 6lbs this week, which is the trend my body kinda rolls in. No loss, no loss, no loss, BIG loss, BIG loss...etc. I'm used to it now. I did get to the center without my wallet somehow, so I'll have to go back to buy HNS...but oh well.
Without my wallet, I also couldn't eat (no money to buy food), so I went until about 10pm before I ate dinner (I did have an HNS in there somewhere). I was nausious and tired and cranky and really hot for some reason...not a good thing. So I eventually ate and then went to bed. It was a rough night. But I survived
