Feet and HCG

| 6 Comments

I started HCG today.  What is that?  It’s a REALLY intense weight loss program.  Light to no working out is an important rule in this diet, which is more important that I thought it would be… more on that in a minute.  Anyway.  The first 2 days of the HCG diet have you eating a high fat diet.  Click the link here and read more about this diet.  So, today I have enjoyed eating donuts, a pastrami sandwich, oreo’s and now a burger from Carl’s Jr.  It feels gross to consume all of this, but it’s important for the diet… even though I have enough fat on me already.  Have any of you been on the HCG diet before?  By the time Creative Estates rolls around I should be at my goal weight, or almost there.  Click on the HCG links above.  They all lead to different websites.

I also went to the foot doctor this morning.  And all this pain in my feet I have experience now has a name.  I have what is called Plantar Fasciitis.  This started last year when I began working out to P90X.  It got so bad I could barely walk at times.  So I stopped doing P90X.  And I started working out again a few weeks ago to Hip Hop Abs, and it started again.  So I had to stop.  It’s incredibly painful.  I am glad I went to the doctor today.  He said if I didn’t heed my bodies warning pains I could have torn the muscles in my feet.  OUCHIE!  So I have been given inserts for my tennis shoes, and a boot that stretches the muscles in my feet, which I have to do starting Friday for 3 hours every night.  Not to mention the shot in the side of each heel I had to endure.  Oh the pain!  I can not exercise for at least 4 weeks and have to stay off of my feet as much as I can or I run of the risk of tearing those muscles or fracturing my heels.  Pretty serious stuff.

How are you doing?  :)

  1. One of my friends just finished a ’round’ of HCG and she has lost 41 pounds. She RAVES about it. Good luck on you weight loss goals … YOU CAN DO IT!

  2. Ouch! Sounds like you’ve been through a lot! I also have plantar fasciitis…I got it while in the Marines. It is incredibly painful, but the inserts help and I am able to exercise again…sometimes, it comes back w/ a vengeance, but overall, it’s been good.

  3. Wow, I had to work out like crazy when I did it. This may be a different type of the HCG since I had to do the injections and whatnot. I remember I even gained a few pounds the first week. Probably because of everything I ate the first 2 days. I didn’t lose many pounds throughout the whole thing, maybe 10 or so, but I lost TONS of inches. That’s what’s important. Oh, and I’ve never eaten spelt bread ever since. :)

    Good luck to you! You will look fab for Creative Estates. :)

  4. I hope your feet get better! That’s so awful. :(

    Good luck with the HCG diet! You look fab anyway, but if I manage to get to Creative Estates I’ll see you looking even fabber.

    :)

  5. I’ve been having heel pain, too. But my foot doc didn’t know why. Feels like a pulled muscle but is getting better after wearing good shows w/ my arch supports and staying off it as much as possible. My mom had the same thing you have and said the shot was so painful. Glad I didn’t have to have that.

    Hope you heal fast!

  6. I have Plantar Fasciitis too. I HATE the inserts, I have to wear the ugliest shoes to get them to fit in. So instead I found a brand that works really well for me. I wear Dansko shoes and it’s totally turned around for me! Good luck! my girlfriend waited too long to get her’s fixed and had to have major nasty surgery!
