Who Am I?? I am a 40 year old mother of 4 children, ranging from the ages of 12-20 years old. I have struggled with my weight for most of my life.

In high school I was not obese, but I did carry some extra weight on me. I was never thin like some of my friends. I would often go on Slim Fast diets to drop a few pounds. It worked for a while; however, in my adulthood, slimfast never worked for me. After each child came an increase in weight gain as well. I found out several years ago that I have hypothyroidism, so my metabolism has been really slugglish. My husband has commented that he has never seen someone work so hard and eat so little to not lose weight.

Over the fall/winter from 2003-04, I was sick and tired of being fat. I weighed 206 at the time. Between the fat double chin pic on my driver’s license, or the horrendous video that I saw of myself, I hated the way that I looked. I started taking ECA stack, and I dropped almost 40 lbs. I was down to a size 12, weighed 168 lbs, and I was feeling great. I never had any problems with ECA, but I took it for a long period of time, and it seemed to quit working. I could not get past the size 12. I quit taking the stack, and over the course of the next 3 years, I gained back all of my previous weight plus more.

By January of 2007, I weighed around 226, so I jumped on the low-carb bandwagon. Low carb has always worked for me; however, it has always left me missing the occasional sweet or carb loaded food. I dropped about 20 lbs just by cutting out my carbs. I would scrape toppings off of fast food pizzas and slide them onto a low carb tortilla. I would throw away the buns when eating a hamburger. This worked well for me for a while….. Then, I got bored! I was tired of eating that way and just sort of gave up.

In January of 2008, I joined Weight Watchers. I absolutely loved it at the time. I dedicated several months to my diet. Over the course of 6 months, I lost 37 pounds. I joined a gym, played tennis, and continued to weigh and fix my meals- while counting my Weight Watchers points. It worked great for a while, but then I got burned out. I slowly started slipping here and there…

In 2010, when I started the HCG Diet, I had gained back all but 12 pounds of my weight. A friend of mine had told me about the HCG diet, and I went home and researched it. I couldn’t believe all of the testimonials that I had read. I jumped on the chance to try it. I’m so glad I did. I love this diet. The weight loss is fast. I reached my goal of 121 lbs in December, 2011. I’m not trying to keep off the weight. I usually bounce around when I get stressed, so my weight may fluctuate between 10-15 lbs. I’m holding on to getting it under control within 10 lbs.
We’ll see what the future holds in store for me!

Stay Tuned….
