I am on day 16 of the 23 day drops. I was sharing a bottle with another family member. We have gone through two bottles (the first was complimentary and we purchased the second one just after payday.) Now we are out of the drops and our supplier is on vacation! We decided to order online - from the same company he gets his supplies from- but it could take a week since we live in Hawaii. Question; would there be problems if we continue on the 500cal diet (as if we had already completed the 23 days) and continue the drops when they come. OR, can we just end this cycle early, do phase 3, and then resume the HCG after phase 3? We really only need to lose about 15 more pounds, but worry that this process will get all messed up now. We've had awesome success, losing about 12-15 pounds each. Thanks for your replies.
