The short of it:
I began this journey in Sep/02 weighing 209lbs. It took me 3 years but I managed to get down to 141.3lbs through various diets (Bernstein, low carb, Weight Watchers, etc). Because of all the yo-yo dieting I did throughout my teens and mid-20’s I ended up with a lovely stomach pooch and decided to have a tummy tuck (Aug/05); I never felt or looked better.
In Mar/08 I started taking happy pills (celexa 20mg) and when the weight started to too easily climb back on my body, I just stopped caring and today I now weigh 225.8lbs and wear a tight size 16.
So here we go again, and with the HCG Diet, it shouldn’t take me 3 years this time…
