14 Kgs In 23 Days

On the 24th August, I weighed in at a whopping 109.5kg. This was my first loading day. 20 days later, I had lost 10kg. I had reached my first goal, and was finally less than 100kg. This is something that I never thought possible...

My name is Lynette Atkins, and I am a 25-year-old midwife. I have been ‘a big girl’ for as long as I can remember and I’ve Yo-yo’ed for the last 15 years.
I’ve tried everything to shift my weight.. Shakes. Special meals. Low Cal. Appetite Suppressors. “Gymming-it’ up to twice a day. Laxatives, and even starvation. All of these methods worked for a brief moment, and then I found myself back in old habits, and comfort eating. Eventually I had resigned to the fact that I would be fat forever.
In January this year that I was diagnosed with PolyCystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). This was a huge shock for me. Being told there was something wrong with me because of my size, was heart breaking. I was so disappointed in myself.
Working as a midwife, I deal with pregnancy and babies every day. I am fully aware of how obesity, and PCOS affects women wanting to have children. I have not yet had children, but is definitely in my near future plans. I decided something HAD to change.
I went to see my doctor, and his advice was to lose weight, but his only suggestions were things I’d tried already. In August this year, my sister introduced me to the The HCG diet.
On the 24th August, I weighed in at a whopping 109.5kg. This was my first loading day. 20 days later, I had lost 10kg. I had reached my first goal, and was finally less than 100kg. This is something that I never thought possible. I can’t remember the last time I was less than 100kg.
I feel as though I have been given my second wind. My confidence has soared. I finally feel comfortable in my own skin. I love to get up in the morning to jump straight on the scales to see my efforts beneath me.
I’m looking forward to getting started on my second phase of HCG. While I have lost 14kg already, I still have a lot of weight to lose before my BMI is considered to be ‘normal’.
I’m looking forward seeing what the slim me is going to achieve. The fat me has long gone!!  u will see why!!!
I was walking up from the garden and my trousers were way to big but I had tightened them up around the waist (so I thought) well you can guess what happened, they fell down in front of my visitors, while I was holding a tray of glasses, I could do nothing but laugh and I got a round of applause from my friends.
 
Once finishing my 40 days I then was rather nervous as Christmas approached I had come so far and did not want to go back there, I was determined to stick with Maintenance which I found was wonderful after the 40 days, I still had a lovely Christmas dinner with all of the trimmings and Birthday Bubbles on the 29th Dec so I was thrilled that I managed over the Xmas period to loose 1 more kg. Now at 16.4 kgs in total, it has now been 3 months and I have kept it off. Weigh in today 89.50 17.2.2013.  I have not been under 100kgs for over 12 years.
 
I have not had bread since as I have learnt my body just does not like it.  I try to eat naturally within the maintenance phase so have not had lots of artificial food.  Back to basics which I think HCG has given me, I was always full before I used to stuff myself now, I sometimes forget its lunch I make better choices and am enjoying light exercise and hope to start running soon??  Wish me luck!!
 
I am just about to start my next round, I would like to loose another 15kg to get to my goal.
 
I have a friend now on her 5th day after seeing my results
Thank you HCG it worked for me and I know its going to work again and be my last diet ever!!!!  I know reading other stories inspired me I hope it inspires you, its only 40 days out of your life and you could get your life back??  Do it, I'm so glad I did.
 
Wishing you all the success and happiness!
