Last Jan 2010 I started the HCG diet I was hoping it would be the answers to my prayers, as I had always wanted to be thin. Overweight most of my life at least since about age 8 due to the high amount of mental abuse I sustained as a child the weight just kept piling on...I was out of control just like with other substances I have previously also been a Meth addict from the time I was 15-20..I conquered that and after 6 years of being clean thought I should now conquer my weight problem.. after having two beautiful daughters I had reached a high of 320 lbs during my pregnancies, and developed gestational diabetes with both..my first baby weighed in at 11 lbs..because of the weight i had gained...I have now lost almost 120 lbs in ONE year! I am so Thankful to have found something that has worked for me. I feel more like myself than i EVER have before in my life. I am more outgoing and want to have more fun than I ever used to..But with my weight loss are new problems, My Husband is very happy and supportive of what i have done but doesnt understand my need for excitement and adventure. My Mom told me when I started my weight loss journey to be careful as any big change in one persons life really can effect they relationship..so i struggle with this everyday trying to still figure out and find myself while still running every aspect of everyone else's life in my family except for my own..maybe i should of stayed fat? i didnt know any better then and was content to just take care of my family. I love them dearly and could never live without them...just need to know myself..
