HCG: What does this weight loss and change in diet mean for me? It’s like a rebirth. The weight was acquired so gradually, that it just snuck up on me, and I truly didn’t realize how desperately handicapped I had become. I fluffed off the limitations is just part of getting older. Well, now I am older and fat-free and feel as if I could live forever. Every move I make is a move of freedom. My mood is lighter as well, as light as my weight. The vague depression faded as I became physically lighter. I’m healthier because of the weight loss in every way my body functions. I look forward with joy to my future as a healthy, active, very happy, great-grandmother. I could not have accomplished any of this without the help of my good friend Dr. Noel Peterson. He’s been my doctor for over 12 years. His supporting and guidance kept me on the mark.
