My sister introduced me to HCG. This is the first time I am trying a walmart brand, and the only reason I am is because I want to be at my goal by August 1st and i still have 45 pounds left to go. I have already lost 55 pounds. I usually buy my drops from Myhcgplus.com and they work. I currently dont have the money to buy them right now hense the drops from walmart. My sister is sending me her bottle of HCG but I didnt want to wait til then to start because then I might not make my goal in time and I will be sad. I lost the 45 pounds in about 2 months before I started to cheat on it and had to stop doing it. I have lost the other 10 with just diet and exercise but its taken all month and i just dont find that fast enough. I actually like doing the diet because i wasnt full but not hungry and it was a very nice feeling cause it was as if I was satisfied but not feeling bloated or too full. I dont like the weird mint choc flavor of the drops from walmart they make me want to vomit but my walmart doesnt carry the pills so Ill make due for the 2 weeks with the walmart stuff. My mom has started the pills that she had from a different state and she is losing like I did with the drops from Myhcgplus so Im encouraged. This is day one loading day so starting wednesday Ill be on vlcd and Im excited. Hopefully in the 2 months I will lose the 45. I started in january at 240 lbs. Stopped after 3 weeks of not losing/cheating on it in March. So from january 3rd-march15 I lost 42 I was 198 march 23rd. I didnt gain any weight from march 23rd to april 10th. I then tried to go back on the diet too soon (after 40 lbs your supposed to stop for 6 weeks and go on to maintenance) After the loading days I had gotten back up to 207.. I did the vlcd til i was back to 198 but it took like 2 weeks which is a long time in hcg so I came to the conclusion I should stop. Ive been doing the diet and exercise thing for 6 weeks now and have lost the other 13 pounds Ive lost total so I am 185 from 240. I want to be 140-145. I am 5'6 and 24. It really depends on what I look like as I get smaller and smaller. I have had 2 kids so my body is different than it used to be. the lowest I have been is 160 and that was junior year of high school. At 160 I actually looked really really good so 160 now I will probably also look great because of my wider hips and bigger boobs (from highschool my boobs have gotten a little bigger). Just like right now, I look smaller and i am smaller than i was at the same weight before. Im hoping that the store hcg will work just as well for me. At least while Im waiting for the stuff my sister is sending me. WORD OF ADVICE:::: dont cheat on the diet, youlll feel guilty and then itll be like a waste of money. Plus if you cheat, u gain the weight back. My sister and I have both done it, she cheated a lot (i cheated very little). I gained like 4 lbs the entire time i was off it and she gained back 30. MY BIGGEST WORD OF ADVICE IS BE AROUND SUPPORTIVE PEOPLE... THERE IS NOTHING WORSE THAN TRYING TO BE ON A DIET LIKE THIS AND HAVING YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY EATING CAKE AND YOUR FAV FOODS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE.
