I think I made this HCG Patch experience hard to start with, as I didn’t want to diet just wanted to be slim. As JenBella said (suck it up buttercup how bad do you want it). O.K. straight forward speaking Australians, lol. So went back on the diet and got my head together this time and have lost 10 kilos so far. The first week was a stretch but looking back it was all in my ‘mind/thinking’. I am still on the HCG Patches and doing wonderfully well. I am wearing clothes that have sat there for years – I just about cry when I see myself in the mirror. My husband is so proud of me. I wont give up until I reach my goal. Well then I am onto the Maintenance Patches for sure. Never going back to fatty (sad) me. Thank you JenBella for all of your help, you are wonderful we both love you (hubby and me that is). Lonny.
