At 53, trying to lose weight had become impossible. I have tried everything under the sun without success so decided to try HCG under the care of Dr. Bullock and Marsi. As a wife of 30 years with 2 adult sons, 2 daughter-in-laws and my first grandchild on the way, it was time for me to feel better about myself. I began HCG on December 31st and I have never looked back. At the end of my 40 days, I was down 26.6 pounds and feeling fabulous. I am currently at the beginning of Phase 3 and I have lost another 2 pounds. My personal goal is to lose another 8-10 pounds. I promise it is well worth the 40 days of 500 calories. I was not hungry and I felt great. I also walked 2 miles each morning and had plenty of energy. I am a teacher and was concerned my energy level would be low, but it wasn't. It is so fun putting on clothes again. This girl is a believer!!! Don't give up on yourself...losing weight has never been so fun. Marsi and Dr. Bullock are great to work with during your journey!! Those who walk the diet journey know the low moments, so put yourself first and take control of your life, you won't be disappointed.
