While I love getting and reading comments, any and all negative comments will be deleted. I hope this blog will inspire people with their own weight loss and personal fitness journeys. Please don't bring people down about something that is already very hard to deal with.

Starting my journey

My HCG journey started May30th, 2009. I was quite depressed about my weight and hated going out. I wasn't comfortable in my own skin. My oldest sister had tried this diet with much success and talked to me about trying it as well. After reading a book about it and much discussion with my roommate (also another sister of mine), I decided I wanted to do this. It wasn't an easy thing to do. There is a lot of controversy about this diet, and I found that out first hand when a family member objected to it strongly. It's hard to continue anything in life when you don't have the support of some of your closest family members. I have now been on this for a year and a half and have enjoyed many benefits of this diet (not just weight loss).

When I started, I weighed 249.6 pounds, wore a size 22 pant and an XL or 2X shirt depending on the brand. I now wear a size 16 pant and Large shirt. I look at my clothes now and still have problems realizing that I can fit into them. I still see myself as the "bigger me" when I look at clothes. It feels wonderful not to have to shop in the plus size section at stores anymore. I'm still overly self conscious when I go out, but I feel more comfortable being out in public. I still have a long way to go to get to my goal, though. I hope that I can help inspire and support even just one person with this blog.
