Jill Rowland Before & After

Jill Rowland Before & After

My Story By Jill Rowland
I would love to be able to tell you about this great moment that my journey began.  You know, my rock bottom.  But mine was years of memories and moments.  Years of negative self-talk.  Years of feeling I could never be anything other than the funny fat girl.  I hated my body and was not happy with who I had become.  I had done every fad diet, gone down and back up again.  I had tried working-out endless hours a day, just to be discouraged at the end of the week.  I had, at one point, convinced myself that it was okay to be my size.  I was lying to myself.  I was not living life to the fullest and my family was hurting because of it.  Then one day I was done.  This was not going to be my future anymore.  I started my research looking for the magic pill that would make it all go away.  I phoned a few friends that had gastric bypass surgery and came to the conclusion that this would be my only way out.  Despite the risks and lifelong health problems, I was still willing to go ahead with the surgery.  To my dismay, there was a 1 year waiting list just to get an appointment and I didn’t want to wait, I wanted it now.

I went back to researching.  Over and over again, the HCG product kept coming up.  The more I read, the more I thought this may be was the answer.  After talking to a few different people and getting all negative feedback, and a million reasons why I should not do it, something inside me was saying not to let this go.  Against all the advice from others, I found a clinic in Montana and drove down to have my consultation with their Doctor.  I spent way too much money, but got everything I needed.  Over the next 39 days I lost 43lbs.  I did not tell a soul it was HCG for fear of all the negativity.  At the time, I was still not convinced this was going to work.  I then started maintenance and could not wait to do my next round.

My next round, I lost 34lbs in 39 days, then back to maintenance for a few more weeks.  I struggled a bit during maintenance because I had lost the weight so fast and it seemed almost effortless.  I don’t think my mind had a chance to catch up.  I found myself struggling with being a size 12.  I remember going into one of those stores that has the plus size on one side and the regular on the other.  After trying on all the pants in the plus size, the sales clerk finally convinced me to look on the “regular” side.  Funny as it was, I found this so hard.  I felt like everyone was going to be pointing and laughing.  Wondering what does that fat girl think she is doing shopping on “this side”.  For some time, I continued to shop at my regular plus size stores, doing the same routine every time.  I would go in, grab all 4xl’s and try them on.  Then work my way down to a 1X and realize everything was too big.

After doing a lot of talking, reading, researching and self-help, I can now finally say I am happy with my body and how far I have come.
 As others started to notice my significant weight loss, I had a few ladies that were actually brave enough to ask me how I did it (the rest just talked behind my back).  Although I had not told anyone that I was on HCG, for fear of all the negative response, I did share with a select few that I knew I could trust.  They were asking for my help.  As I watched my friends losing 50, 60 and 100lbs, I finally realized “man this stuff really works”.  When I came across Goodbye My Muffintop, I have to admit I was the biggest sceptic of them all, but the more I learned about the product, the more I realized I might be mistaken.  The only way I would know if it was as good as “the real stuff” was to try it. I bought my starter kit and planned on doing 21 days. After day 5, I was hooked.  I felt better than I had on my last two rounds of HCG and I was losing weight like crazy.  My energy level was way up and my stress level was way down.  I could not believe how much better I felt on the Release product than the HCG injections.  Also, it was nice to have the product all in one.  When I did injections, I had to take two different needles, one for the HCG and one for the B-12.  As well, I had to take supplements throughout the day.  I love the convenience of not having to buy and take so many pills.
 I am happy to say, I have now lost over 100lbs.  I continue to work on me every day and to make choices that will help me have better life.  Due to my weight loss success and struggles, I realized my journey and story could help others get started on their own journey.  I decided to team up with the girls from Goodbye My Muffintop.  I look forward to helping many more people end their battle with weight and begin living a much healthier, happier life. ~ Jill
