Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

One of the greatest things about losing weight is that you’re never the only one who notices the difference, and when others notice it, and say something, you feel like a million bucks. The only problem that arises is when they ask, “So how did you do it?”

The hCG diet is all over the news right now, and not just for it’s effectiveness, but for it’s controversial low calorie diet as well. When people feel passionately about something, whether for or against, they’re outspoken about it, and sometimes in the quest to be heard, and be right, others get trampled on. This diet is no different. If you go onto a public online forum about hCG, you will see all kinds of naysayers, actually getting angry about the methods practiced during a round of the diet. I want to encourage you to be aware that people might react negatively if you tell them you’re doing hCG, and that if and when they do, you can come here and find a group of people who’ve walked that road before, and will help pick your spirits back up when they’re torn down! You’re not alone!

I was part of an online forum that got taken over by uneducated people trying to tell those of us doing the diet that we were failures and cowards, and that we would gain all of our weight back, just like all the other fad dieters have. The truth of the matter is that hCG is a proven method for weight loss, and IF you stick to the protocol, and the maintenance plan, you will have success. Just like with any diet, if you stray from the rules, well, of course you’ll gain it back. It’s not about the diet you chose to do, but the choices you made after the diet finished.

A classic rule of most support groups, be it recovery or weight loss etc., is that you have to surround yourself with people who are not dream stealers. Weight loss is your dream right now, and no one has the right to try to steal that from you. So when you encounter these people who just don’t get it, just walk away. Thank them for their concern and kindly remind them, the choices you make are not for everyone. You can do this, no matter what anyone says, and this community is here for you!

Choose the Red Pill!

So you want to lose some weight huh? Not just five pounds here or there, but serious, closet altering weight.  You are in luck because we have in our arsenal of health and well being experience, an incredible program called the hCG diet that is proven to help users lose on average up to a pound a day.

This is a pick the red pill or the blue pill kind of scenario… hCG is not for the faint of heart. It’s intensive, it can be challenging, but it’s fast, and it’s extremely effective, and when followed properly, the results of this program can help you maintain your weight loss as long as you commit to doing what is necessary! You will run into people who are vehemently against the methods, and it’s simply a lack of knowledge on their part. There is a science behind this diet, and it’s up to you to be educated enough to combat their arguments, or simply not tell people what you’re doing.

This online portal is here for your support. If you choose to take part in the diet with Dr. Lorenzen’s clinic, you will find here not only medical support, but a group of individuals walking the same path as you, looking for and to encourage one another on their path, answers to your questions, and as many resources as we can pack in to help you along your path.

My name is Julie, and I will be here to guide you along the right channels, helping you get the information that you need to be as successful as possible on the program. I have personally done this program four separate times. Do to user errors, and because I wasn’t fortunate enough to have the kind of medical and experiential support Dr. Lorenzen is offering you, I have struggled through my process a little more than others. I’m proud to say now though, that after less than a year of working this program, I have lost 60 lbs, and am now maintaining my new weight with little effort, and let me tell you… it feels amazing. I started out, tipping the scales at 205 lbs, and I am now at 145, and wearing a size small!!!!

I have done Weight Watchers plenty of times before, and one of their mottos is “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” I always used to laugh at that, because I didn’t believe it! I’m sorry Ms. Weight Watcher, have you ever had pizza? Chocolate?

Well I’m here, on the other side of 60 lbs, and I’m telling you… there is no pizza, no chocolate that tastes as good as this new body feels. But you don’t have to pay thousands of dollars and work for years to get the weight off. That’s the good news. You can do it affordably, with proper medical care, and you’ve already taken the first step, because you’re here.

We look forward to walking this path with you and helping you reach your weight loss goals. If we can do it, so can you!
