I have struggled with my weight over the past 4 years. After having my second daughter, I progressively became more and more tired to the point of exhaustion. I started to put on weight and became so exhausted that going to the gym would leave me so tired I would sleep for hours during the day. I even started avoiding having my photo taken. I had belonged to a gym all of my life and I felt so uncomfortable about the weight gain I no longer wanted to go.
After years of weight fluctuation and severe lack of energy, I have been diagnosed with the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and a severe vitamin B12 deficiency which explained the past 4 years of struggle with my weight and energy. I thought after starting my medication, my weight would return to a normal range but it didn’t.
I come from a background in massage and natural health and had always been fit before this, so I knew what to eat and how to exercise but nothing I tried was working. While seeing our accountant, he told me about the HCG diet that he had great success so I ordered them that day!
I was so unbelievably happy when I started to feel and see results within the first few days. My husband who had been a personal fitness trainer for 10 years couldn’t believe what he was seeing. He didn’t think that the HCG Injections would work but decided to support me and I was desperate to feel like myself again.
I had avoided weighing myself so I was afraid to look but committed to the process. I started at 89 kg. I had probably been bigger at times but because I was too afraid to weigh myself I’m not sure how heavy I got. I did this for 3 weeks and lost 14 kg. I then went on maintenance for a couple of months and did a second round and lost an additional 8kgs giving me a total weight loss of 22kgs! I chose to split up my weight loss so I had the best chance of keeping it off. I have kept the weight off for almost a year.
I work in a physically demanding business within the building industry but I am still able to have enough energy to work. I didn’t eat anything fancy. I pretty much ate the same thing every day as I was really busy and didn’t have the time to prepare different meals. Yes, it was a little boring but very effective and the only way I was able to stick to it.
I was never hungry which surprised me given how few calories I was taking in. I honestly haven’t felt this good in years and I’m back to my old self. I was back at the gym and got back into my running and recently completed my first marathon.
I’ve maintained my weight loss and continue to feel happier and healthier. I really couldn’t have done it without the jump-start the HCG gave me. I’m thankful to have discovered the HCG injections! They gave me my life back!
