Have you ever heard of the hCG diet? The acronym hCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, the hormone produced by pregnant women during the early stages of pregnancy. Studies suggest that a daily hCG injection coupled with a very low calorie diet can make a person lose weight of 1 to 2 pounds a day. However, the FDA doesn’t approve the use of hCG as a dietary aid. There are also health risks associated with the use of hCG for weight loss. If I were you, I’d think twice about trying out this diet regimen.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
