My name is...and I'm a Coca-Holic!

Diet Coke - now this sounds like such a dirty word.
I've now been Coke -dry for almost 4 months!!! Can I say WOW!! Can't believe how long I've not had Diet Coke.
Just before Starting HCG I was probably having 3 cans at work plus almost a 2litre bottle in the evenings!! Yes I know, all my fluid intake was Diet coke.
So the first few weeks of the Diet I was in definite withdrawal symptoms, even to the point that I even tried to Inhale coke from my husbands freshly poured glass!!!
Now being 'Clean' for almost 4 months, I've now started to really enjoy water. Fizzy water and Water has become my new drink, and is all I drink now.
I'm now at the point that if I did try some again now, will turn back into my old habits? I feel like an alcoholic!
With starting the next round this weekend, it will be after the new year before I can even think about it again, and maybe at the that point I may have become stronger or do I cut it out for good?!

B12 & Hair Loss

P4 Quick update - 
Still maintaining at -4lb ish under last inject weight (LIW). Although as starting back up on the juice this weekend I might spurge a little!! Here in the UK we don't have Thanks Giving, but its my wedding anniversary on the 29th, so still great loading weekend!

Over the last week I've noticed some hair loss, nothing dramatic. Although my husband does not agree when after every hair wash I'm blocking the shower plug hole!
Now I'm not sure if its the HCG or not, as every time after I gave birth about 3 or 4 weeks later I had hair I wonder if this is related?! Is it because the HCG is completely out of the system? but why is this so similar to after having a baby!?
I've watched some Vlogs and some HCGers are saying B12 helps with hair loss, plus helps to aid fat loss. 
So I've done what any other impatient women would do is ordered some B12 4x 30ml 1000mg from yesterday hopefully this will arrive by the weekend. 
Now what I've been trying to research is how much I'm suppose to take. Looking (Colin's Site) says to take about .4cc daily, but I'm not sure if this may be too much?! Please help. 

I'm sitting Chartered Accountancy Exams on 8th & 9th of December and maybe a little MIA for awhile as trying to revise!

P4 - Update

My P4 has been rather interesting, specially since I've been generally tracking under my LIW, even when I've tried to be bad (as in fats & carbs i.e Pizza hut) I'm still either the staying the same or gaining .2lbs...When I'm -4 under LIW its nothing.
I'm now starting to really look forward to my next round! which I must be absolutely bonkers as it will be over the christmas and new years but I have 15lb mission to complete...I'd love to get into my 140's!
One thing I havce noticed is the my Protein intake, I'm making sure I'm getting enough protein, as a vegeterian I know I should ensure I'm getting enough, but Pre HCG I think I was more of a Carb-terian ( as in eating just carbs!!) so I'm now actually thinking about what I'm putting into my body. Whole different way I think about food now.

Scales Vs WII

SO....I've had some basic Weight Watchers Scales which give me a totally different weight everytime I step on them, within seconds...and If I move around the bathroom I can weight any where from 17stones to 6 stones. YES EXACTLY!! Not good.
My conclusion was to ignore the scales and weigh daily on the WII, which when I was P2 this was exciting as the 2 minutes it takes to setup wasn't that bad..but now in P3 and P4 seems like a chore.
I've been researching scales specially the ones that do the body compisition analysis, I bought some Salter MIbody scales which I must admit are great, I've moved them around the house and I weighed the same> WOOHOO!!! I can put in the USB stick to download my readings too, not figured that bit out yet, but I'm sure I will.
How sad am I but so excited about my new scales!!

To vlog or not to vlog that is the question!

Good evening Hcgers!
Well I've been contemplating Vloging, but I'm natively a very shy. Although thru out my research the vlogs were probably the reason I started HCG in the first place, as it was real people with real results.
I'm almost half way thru my journey, but the queston is it too late to start now? I've finally figured out all the technical stuff for the webcam, but been umming and ariing for the last few days, maybe I need to set myself a time limit and say "must do it by xxx, or else I wont try".
So for an update- I'm still tracking between 2-2.5 lbs under LIW, and I start P4 - yay! Rice, bread, cake.....can't wait, but I will definately be carefull as dont want turn back into a fat whale!
