HCG Diet - Follow Up

So I am supposed to be losing all this weight on the HCG diet from Creative BioScience.  To be honest I lost about 9 lbs and 2 inches in the first week.  However, during the start of my second week, I ended up with a few issues.

 The first issue was that I came up pregnant.  That didn't last long, but being on a diet when you are pregnant is not a good idea.

 Then I ended up with a sinus infection and the flu (yes I got the flu shot).  Great, so the Doctor took me off the diet yet again.  Then when I was going to get back on the diet I ended up in the hospital with Sphenoid sinusitis (it is rare enough that I had never heard of it before either).

Now the nice doctors have me on a bunch of antibiotics and I am waiting to see if I need surgery.  Fun fun, the issue with this is that I have had no chance to lose any more weight.  I have not forgotten my new year’s resolution nor have I forsaken it.  Just at this time I cannot continue.

While I was on the diet I had a large amount of side effects from loose stool to feeling hungry constantly.  Since I am not a big eater wanting to eat all the time is strange for me.  I am not sure if this is normal or not.  

I seem to constantly be doomed to not be able to continue my diet.  I have tried to start three times and never gotten past a 1 1/2 week into it before I am being yanked off for some reason or another.  Due to these issues I am still not sure how much I could have possibly lost by now.  I am thinking I would be well past my goal if I had been able to stay on the diet longer.  Since my goal was only 15 lbs I was already half way there before I was forced off the diet in the first place. 

I fully plan to continue my diet and be ready for swimsuit season when I know what is going on inside my head.  I fully expect to be able to continue around the middle of April after all is said and done with the DR drama.  However, I did promise everyone that I would keep them updated on how my diet is going.  Since I didn’t want to break that promise you get to hear how it is not going.  I will let you know when I start my forth attempt.  

I am starting to wonder if I shouldn't try to trade my leftover Bottles of HCG drops for the body cleanse or one of the other diets.
