First Week – 10 lbs. Lost! [Belina's HCG Journey]

Hello fellow fat fight fighters.

Welcome to the rest of your healthy, lighter lives!


I personally have tried so many different weight loss products, it’s staggering how little weight i didn’t lose but how much money I have spent, only to fail, fail, fail. I finally stumbled across YourHCG.com , I was VERY skeptical, but I read the discussion boards researched it and read the pound and inches book. I figured it was worth a try, the only thing to lose was the weight.

To be completely honest I had the drops for almost 2 weeks before I felt that I was mentally ready to begin this journey, I knew his was going to change my eating habits FOREVER!  I LOVE FOOD! I have used it as my best friend, my lover, my comforter when everything in life is going wrong. I have always eaten to make myself feel better, well, until the guilt set in again, then I would give up and eat more to comfort my shame. I have been chubby to fat all my life, I was the fat kid at school and high school was brutal. My adult life thus far as been a rollercoaster, weight up and down on various diets. I always worked as a server or a bartender until recently where at age 42 and  I truly believe my weight got me fired from a local lounge… I guess it was kinda a wake up call for me.

In preparation for this program I went out and bought a food scale and a weight scale, I have never owned one! The first time I stepped on that scale I cried! It said I was 225 pounds!!!! I figured I was around 200 lbs. but not that high. Obviously I was in complete denile. So my journey began on February 17 2011, the scale read 223.8 lbs. I figured two days of loading up on fattening foods would be a pleasure! But really all I had to do was eat what I would normally eat.

So on February 19th the scale read 225.2 day 1 of the VLCD! I was scared I couldn’t do it, what if I failed… again. But I decided to get stubborn about this I portioned out my proteins and froze them so I couldn’t have an excuse. I removed all unhealthy snacks and junk food from the kitchen, my poor husband who has always loved me just the way I am was a little scared..lol. But he has been pretty good and tolerant.

After 3 days on VLCD i had lost 5 lbs! I was encouraged!  On Feb 22 i took my measurements these were very frightening to me but I will share them with all of you.

Bust – 41 inches

Waist – 40 inches

Hips – 48.5 inches

I also measred my right knee – 20 inches

My right calf – 19 inches

So you can tell I have a huge butt and thighs. but they are slowly going down!! Thanks to Your HCG!!! By day 5 I was at 217.0. That’s 8 POUNDS in 5 days!! I have never seen those kind of results before!!! By day 7, 10 pounds loss! I still have lots to go and I hope you will join me in this journey!!

Yesterday was a very emoitional day for me lots of stress, so much so I couldn’t eat all morning and afternoon, I did manage to eat my protein veggie and fruit  for supper. I also did a detox bath but my weight did go up  I was at 214.8 on the 25th and today it’s at 215.2  so I will increase my water intake and try and get at least one shot glass of ACV in! Hopefully that will bring it down again.

Please check out my pics, my recipes, my story, my trials and tribulations I welcome your questions and comments! See you on the  next blog! NEXT BLOG the Morning scale pics!
