Lost 25Kgs

My story starts 25kgs ago, recovering from a torn Achilles and surgery to my left ankle.

I had always been a fit person, but I started studying and putting on weight, this then lead to injury, which leads to more weight gain until I was 30kgs heavier. Isn't it funny how you don't see a fat person in the mirror, it takes your clothes and a realization of your change in attitude to tell you what is wrong with the picture.

I was always the bubbly girl with heaps of energy, and I never noticed what a monster I had created. I was tired, depressed, and too shy to go anywhere because I was so ashamed of what I had become. I had realized my weight gain and didn't need others to pointing it out, but they were. I tired to exercise, but my knees would give way, my hip became so sore that I couldn't walk properly, and my ankles were constantly inflamed. All I wanted to do is cry. I'm only 24; I should be living life to the fullest. My life became the never ending cycle of, go to work, come home and hide in my room. My boyfriend said he didn't care about my weight, but he needed me to cheer up and embrace myself or he couldn't be around me anymore. On top of this, I had constant pain in my foot that was operated on which made me even moodier and my surgeon said I would be lucky if it went away.

I was just about ready to come to terms with the fact that my life wasn't going to get better when I was introduced to the HCG diet.

Within the first two weeks, I lost a decent amount of weight, and I started to notice that I had no pain what so ever in my foot.
Who would have thought you'd wake up every morning and be excited to jump on the scales.
My clothes were falling off me, and that was my biggest problem. I no longer cared of got upset at the things that I used to, and people were giving me compliments everywhere I went, and they still are. HCG has, through two rounds, helped me loose 25kgs and get my life back, get my ankles back and start working on being a fitter, healthier, happier person. Instead of taking an hour to choose my clothes in the morning to best hide my fat and blend into the back ground, I now take an hour to put makeup on and be seen.

I cant express how much HCG has changed my life. I can run again; I feel good, and I'm in a better head space. I don't feel like I have to worry about my body anymore. I don't have a perfect body, but I love my myself that's what matters to me.

Since my weight loss, I have been able to start up things I really enjoy again. I have become better at snowboarding, participated in fun runs such as the Colour run, I've hiked the cables and Routeburn, as well as the Northern Tongariro circuit and the pinnacles.
I've just recently signed up to two half marathons after a work colleague said I wouldn't be able to complete them. I will show him that loosing the weight and keeping it off is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, and if I can do that then I can do anything!

Now looking back, what a horrible life I had lived for far too long.

Celebrate the weight you are now because you never know what the future holds for you.

Be happy, enjoy life and don't be a spectator.
