I was never a size-two kind of girl. Even as a healthy 16-year-old, running cross country and weight training every day, I was always at the high end of the weight charts for my height and age. I have always struggled with comparing myself to other women, which caused some emotional and self-confidence issues, but I learned to feel confident in my body.

I guess it’s no surprise that after getting married, juggling three jobs and full-time college, my eating habits worsened while my exercise habits disappeared. Between adopting some of his latin cuisine (rice and beans anyone?) and having a thousand things to do other than work out, I seemed to gain weight overnight. 

I was frustrated and puzzled. Despite not having an actual workout schedule, my lifestyle kept me very active, and I tried a few different diets. Usually, this led to more frustration due to lack of results. The one time I did lose almost 20 pounds, it took 3 months. I was spending HOURS in the gym, was bored to death with my food, and felt deprived. Within 6 months, I had regained that 20 lbs and more.

In April of 2010, I was observing a teacher for one of my education courses, and saw her putting something under her tongue. I was somewhat familiar with natural remedies, so I asked what she was taking, and she told me it was hCG. She then explained the protocol a bit, and I rolled my eyes and thought, “Yeah, right!” Five hundred calories a day? The pregnancy hormone? No exercise? I was intrigued, but skeptical.

In August, when school started, I saw this teacher again and she looked phenomenal. Turns out she had lost 50 lbs since April and kept it off! I went home that night, and was on your website reading Pounds and Inches. I spent hours researching the protocol, talking to my husband, my mom, and my mother-in-law.

By the end of August, my mother-in-law and I decided to give hCG a try. She had been working out and dieting, but had hit a plateau about 10 lbs from her goal. The men were skeptical, but we knew we would have each other and what did we have to lose?

Well, in 30 days, my mother-in-law lost 16 pounds and is a size 4 for the first time in her life! In my 43-day round, I lost 30.6 pounds and 43 inches! I weigh less now than when I got married! 

I cannot express how crucial the ThinNow/MyHCGPlus team was in my success! If I had a question, all I had to do was pop on Facebook on my phone, or email or call, and I would have an answer within minutes! 

When I was feeling down or worried about a family get-together, everyone on the ThinNow/MyHCGPlus Facebook page was there to lift me up! The support, encouragement, and inspiration from the entire community made an already phenomenal protocol that much more enjoyable!

Most importantly, I have a new view of myself. Over the course of the protocol, I learned a lot about my eating habits and all of the psychology that was behind them. I have regained my confidence and have a new appreciation for wholesome, healthy food. I’m telling you: ThinNow/MyHCGPlus will change your life!

Don’t wait any longer, take that step today and join the rest of us that finally made that call!
