hCG Success Stories Grouped by Type
Does the hCG Protocol Work? Does it Work Well?
The BIGGEST thing that caused me to feel confident enough to try hCG injections (I mean, who decides to inject themselves with a hormone very easily? Not I!) was the REAL people I found on youtube who were sharing their own personal journey while doing this diet.
How many sites have you gone to that sell hCG, whether it’s drops or injections, prescription or homeopathic, that has a picture of a smiling thin person holding out the waist of some super huge jeans several sizes too big?
You and I both know those are stock photos purchased online right?
AHEM: Who is this lady anyway? Do any of us know her?
Most likely images like these that we see on these sites did not lose that weight with the hCG Diet at all, and it’s a big question whether these persons were EVER overweight to begin with- more than likely they are simply a model paid to pose in a large pair of jeans right?
I guess my point is that these types of images get us excited when we see them, but they’re not actually REAL – whatever diet product you’re looking at to use, don’t you want to see what ACTUAL results people have achieved using it?
BTW I had to pay $15 to use the above photo. It was worth it to make my point though.
When you come to my blog,
I hope you can see that I’m a real person who not only lost weight, but lost it with the actual hCG Diet (see my personal results here: My hCG Story, My hCG Diet Review, and Timeline of my hCG Weight loss).
These are real photos, unretouched, and not altered to make the change look more drastic. I’m aware I’m not a MODEL in the after photo – what I am is a healthy, fit, normal woman now, with a little excess skin left after my weight loss and pregnancy to prove it. And being a comfy size 4
for a year and a half now 5 YEARS (yes, as of Nov 2017 I’ve been maintaining 5 stinkin’ years) is nothing to scoff at for sure. These are the ACTUAL results that you can indeed achieve if you see this protocol through.
But I also wanted to interview other everyday people I’ve found in places like youtube and facebook, who’ve completely transformed both their bodies and their lives with this amazing protocol.
I get a little bored talking just about myself all the time on this site!
Pooling the experiences of many others who’ve done this protocol as well by interviewing them I thought would be a wonderful way to continue the learning journey without things getting too stale. And boy it has turned out to be more inspiring than I ever could have imagined!
Not to mention super fun. Somehow I get the feeling that people who are willing to do something so seemingly off-the-wall as the hCG protocol end up being really cool people.
You Might Be In the Same Situation They’ve Been
Each person’s hCG story is unique and contains some pearls of wisdom that we can benefit from that will help us to either lose the weight, or keep it off.
Whether it’s having thyroid issues, having gained weight from menopause, overeating because of emotional issues, having an eating disorder in your past, or being a mom with kids who you wish you could set an example for, you may be able to related to their starting point in some way, which will inspire you that YES you can do this protocol and succeed too.
These interviews are with real people, of all ages, different health conditions and life circumstances- we need to see that others who have had similar struggles to us have succeeded in losing weight with hCG to convince us that the same thing is possible for ourselves.
So. Stop reading and start watching already! 😉
