it pours...
get an umbrella
and dance in it.

When I found the Dr. Simeons protocol, it was an accident! I wasn't even looking for another diet plan. I had been on South Beach, tried all sorts of things, exercised relentlessly... all I could drop was 7 measly pounds - over 5 years of trying!! How frustrating!!! I learned a bit of anger management, hearing comments like, "Diet and exercise" from thin people. And yes, for the curious or sceptic, I did have my thyroid checked, several times over the years.

Last summer, 2010, I pretty much resorted to being chubby for the rest of my life. Then hCG came out of the blue! I was on youtube looking for a song for church... an accident? No. I think it was Divine intervention :D

I ended up with what was thought to be plantar fasciitis, in both feet. I did the foot exercises the good Doc gave me. For over 18 months, I put up with this miserable, agonizing pain, hobbling down my hallways, holding onto walls for support, in tears.

Every time I stood, walked, sat, laid down, it felt like I had broken glass embedded in my feet. I would tape my feet everyday, wear special implants, with tennis shoes for added support. Luckily, I worked in nursing in the ICU, so tennis shoes were acceptable with scrubs! lol Kinda funny looking at church though, but when your in PAIN, you don't care.

When I read the protocol, Dr. Simeons mentioned that foot pain went away. That the pain was caused by structural fat being removed while dieting... hmmm... had all of the strict dieting "low fat" and "low carb" along with jogging, caused me to lose the structural fat in my heels? Could it be that there may be relief? Was my hypothalamus off, and that's why I couldn't lose more than 7 lbs, why my feet hurt, was this really a light at the end of the tunnel? When your in pain, popping 800 mg of Ibuprofen as often as possible, you'll not be so judgemental when something like this comes along. At this point, weight loss would be just a perk if the pain would go away. I had to try it.

SIX days into the protocol my pain literally vanished! I now walk barefoot, wear flip flops, run with my kids, I can actually PLAY with my boys!!!... NO pain!!!
Yep! I threw those implants away and tennis shoes went in the trash as well!! 30 lbs down... an awesome perk! lol
That was my first round of hCG back in September 2010, I am still pain free and am so thankful that I found hCG.
HCG changed my life by putting me back on my feet, literally! And the perk, I'm losing weight that I couldn't lose before.

Would I recommend hCG? Yes, hands down. Nothing compares to it. I will only go back to "conventional methods" more like "dinosaur methods" except to maintain.

Praise God! He is a prayer answering God! And just when we're giving up and settling for less, He has a miracle about to be birthed.

Your miracle is on the horizon, don't give up, stay consistent, keep moving and pressing toward your dreams, your worth it and He knows it.

    Thanks for visiting my page and leaving such a wonderful comment. I do post on the support group for HCG and I only used it to lose the twenty pounds I put on after we moved to our new home. It works and I wish you well in your weight loss journey.
    I must say if I had found it in the beginning I would have not taken three years to lose the 120 pounds in the first place. I did one round and am maintaining and can eat more now than ever before and not gain weight.
    Stay strong and be true to yourself. Best wishes. Sandy

    Great Post. My foot pain also went away! I have energy and I am doing great. I used to have a hard time breathing above 6000 feet. That is just up the road from me. But now I can walk the whole Red Rocks Amphitheater, up and back down! and it is much higher. I have done 2 rounds losing around 20-30 lbs each time.

    Finally something that works!!!

    I am just getting started on my HCG diet and am doing pretty well so far. I would like to be able to join these HCG Support groups if someone could please invite me.
