HCG Weight Loss Testimonial – Natalie’s Story

HCG Weight Loss Success Story for South Shore Wholistic Weight Loss

HCG Weight Loss Natalie Before and AfterIn 2005, I was up late flipping through the channels and I stopped when I heard a man talking about a way to lose weight and never gain it back.  Now that was a first, even for infomercials.  So, I continued to watch.  The man speaking was Kevin Trudeau and he was talking about his new book and the hCG program.  Intrigued, I ordered the book and impatiently awaited its arrival.  In the mean time I started researching everything I could find on the hCG program on the internet.  And what I came across was excerpts from Dr. Simeon’s ‘Pounds and Inches’ Weight Loss Manuscript and Kevin Trudeau’s book.

By the time I finished reading all the information I had gathered and the book when it arrived, disappointingly I concluded that a) that I didn’t have a clue where to start and how to safely get what I needed; b) I wasn’t sure that I could safely do what needed to be done without assistance; and, c) if I couldn’t do it on my own, it was going to be expensive as much as $10,000 if I went to Europe.  So, I nicely saved everything I found on my computer and in a folder in my bottom nightstand drawer.  Only to be forgotten until years later.

Fast forward to the beginning of March 2011, several unsuccessful diet programs later and my weight fast approaching 240 lbs.  I’m flipping through the television channels again and I stop on Channel 12 and I am listing to Mary Mucci talk about a program where you lose weight and don’t gain it back.  And when she mentioned daily injections of hCG, the bells went off in my head!  I sat straight up and hung on her every word.  And sure enough she gave me the words I wanted to hear, there was a doctor assisted program right here on Long Island.  The key words being ‘doctor assisted’.  So, I grabbed all my info out of nightstand drawer, fired up the computer and contacted Ellen Piernick.  The rest is history.

I started my first round of the program in April 2011, weighing in at 234.4 pounds.  Everyday was a challenge for me to get around and I was starting to feel it in my knees and hips.  I kept what I was doing to myself; I didn’t want any negative detractors getting in the way.  I knew I had to make a change in my life and this was my opportunity, albeit 6 years in the making.  I followed the program to a tee; and, after the end of 40 days I had lost 30.2 pounds.  I had not been this close to 200 pounds in over 15 years!  Time to show off the new me.

I went to my Garden Club’s Luncheon on Wednesday, May 18th; I had not been active for 2 years due to work.  The ladies were amazed at how great I looked.  They called me the “celebrity”.  They said I looked 10 years younger.  Wow!  By the way, I turn 55 next February!  Plus, my work allows me to only have to go in the office once or twice a week; and, when I did my colleagues were amazed at the visible transformation from week to week.

I’ve gained my confidence back and I have been even more successful at work.  30 pounds does not seem like a lot. But my body seems like it has lost so much more.  It’s like a metamorphosis.  I can look at my body and see where I have lost so much fat around my rib cage down to my navel.  I am still left with a Homer Simpson like belly, but it’s not as big as it used to be.  And my flat butt is still flat but not as fat.  And the amazing thing is that I had kept the weight off and only fluctuated within 2 pounds.

But that was only the beginning.  I was determined to get my weight down to a size that was comfortable when I was in my 30’s.  So, under Ellen’s and Dr. Dekel’s direction, I started the protocol for a second round.  The second time was a little more difficult for me, life got in the way, as well as an infected tooth than needed to be removed years before.  But, I stayed true to the program.  And when I broke the 200 pound mark I was so excited I did a happy dance around my kitchen!  And at the end of the second round…

I had lost another 32 pounds.  OMG!!!

But it’s not just the pounds, it’s the inches!  When I started the program I was wearing a size 20W.  As, I progressed through the second round my friends and colleagues said I looked amazing and I was becoming a whole new person.  Okay, one said, “I was half the person I used to be.”  I would wake up in the morning and my biggest challenge for the day was “what can I wear” not “what should I wear”.  Nothing fit.  I would go to the store and by new pants and two weeks later they were too big.

And when I finished the second round, I decided to treat myself to a new pair of jeans.  So I grabbed a size 16, 14 and 12 and headed for the fitting room.  No realizing or believing how much my body had changed, I put on the size 16 first.  Too big!  Then the size 14, they were too big!  So, I stood there looking in the mirror with a big grin on my face and I grabbed the size 12 jeans.  “Are you kidding me?”  They were too big as well!  In six months I had gone from a size 20W to a size 10!!!!

Its now, October and I had finished my last round of injections mid-August.  I continue to be amazed at people’s reactions who haven’t seen me in a while.  One colleague even re-introduced herself to me; and, I raised my sunglasses and said, “It’s me, Natalie, only 60 pounds lighter!”

I have a new, better and healthier lifestyle.  I have kept the weight off.  I have completely and consistently changed my eating habits, by only eating organic which is part of Ellen’s protocol.  I joined a gym and exercise regularly, enjoy relaxing sauna and go for long walks.  And once a week, I slide into those size 10 black jeans (which even now are a little baggy) to remind myself how great life is!

Thank you Ellen and Dr. Dekel.
