I never thought that I can be a success story myself to help inspire other dieters. I used to think that only a few people with amazing strength and willpower can share their success stories. But here I am writing my own.
It took me 9 months to lose 52 pounds. I started my journey 9 months ago and I went from an obese 204 pounds to 142 pounds. I’m a normal mom of 2 kids who love sports. Well, I’m their opposite. I hate games, sports and any other physical activities with every fiber of my being. Maybe it’s the reason why I kept on ballooning up plus my being an emotional eater.
I heard about HCG diet from someone I knew who lost quite a good amount of weight. It took me 5 long months to finally decide to do the diet. For five long months, I read everything I could about HCG diet-from the how’s and why’s to the different forums. I needed to learn everything. I don’t want to make another rebound gain just like any other diets that I have tried.
HCG diet protocol for me is not just simply a diet. Before I decided to start with the diet I set my mind and my body. My points were, “If I’ll change my life with HCG, it has to be a lifetime change. If I want results, then I should stick with the hcg diet protocol with no cheats”.
The hcg diet protocol was hard and I know that very well from the start. I’ve read lots of forums about how hard Phase 2 can be for some. And they were all true. For me, Phase 2 of the HCG diet was hard. I feel deprived of the limited choices of foods. BUT, I will only do P2 for 46 days in every round. That’s not bad. Thinking about the REWARD after was WORTH it.
