I am on my second round right now and I definitely love this diet. It’s a really a tough diet to stick to but the rewards are so worth it. I keep getting compliments from people around me and I am amazed at them all.
I was so heavy for so long. I am used to the fat image and my self-worth was next to nothing. I will be turning 50 this year but my son said that I am one hot mom. .. Well, that motivates me more. I love my body even more. A few months ago I was a desperate mom who’s tired of being an overweight. I realized that being an overweight by 20 or more pounds puts you at risk. So I did what I have to do years ago, diet! It’s never too late anyway.
My first try was Weight Watchers then I tried running ‘till I’m exhausted. The weight did come off but only a little. So I tried HCG diet which I’ve read from one of their email campaigns. When I started the HCG diet I was so nervous. How could I do this? How can I survive with only 500 calories per day? But I did it! My first two weeks with HCG injection was great. I lost 16 pounds. I went down to 214 pounds from 230 pounds. But my week 3 and 4 were awful. I really wanted to quit so I can just eat normal foods. I’m glad I have my supportive son and hubby at my back.
I lost a total of 27 pounds after the very low calorie diet of round 1. I have more weights to lose but my pants now are starting to feel a little baggy. I can’t wait to see the number “1” on my scale. I haven’t been on those weights for decades. I have some trouble doing the Phase 3. I wasn’t able to maintain a steady weight of 203 pounds. I gained 3 pounds more during Phase 3.
Now I’m in my second week of Phase 2 round 2. So far I have lost another 12 pounds now I am 191 pounds from 230. I am very determined to get down to 185 pounds by the end of this round.
This diet really does work!
