Changing My Life with the HCG Diet

My name is Nikki and I have lived in Los Angeles for the past 2 years, but was born an raised in Houston Texas. I am getting ready for my 2nd National TV Appearance and am desperately needing to lose weight so I am not utterly ashamed this time around! 


My life has been so blessed. I have an absolutely out of this world, amazing husband, incredible parents, 11 outstanding brothers and sisters and 13 (soon to be 14) nieces and nephews.

My husband and I don’t have any children yet, but starting our family is hopefully not too far away. We really want to be healthy when we start our family, which is one of my motivations for being successful with this diet. I want to be a skinny pregnant lady and a skinny, healthy mom when the time comes.

In the past 7 years I have gained about 62 pounds and am just miserable about that. In 2010 I partnered with 5 other people to re-launch a company my Mother-in-Law, husband and I had started back in 2005, but had to close down. In the course of launching the company again I was invited to be on an ABC television series called Shark Tank. The show went great altogether…but I haaaated seeing myself on tv.

I am re-filming with the show for a follow up for next season in 2 months and I plan to be half the girl I was last time!


I called about 10 different HCG clinics about getting started with the HCG diet. I chose SlimXpress because they have a great location were so enthusiastic and professional. I went in for a free 10 minute consultation before deciding, but when I left the building I had an appointment for the next day.

So far I have loved working with Slim Xpress.  I think the absolute best way to conquer the HCG diet and meet your goals is to work with a clinic like this because it provides things such as:

  • Accountability: Visiting a clinic provides the motivation NOT to cheat because you know that when you arrive for weights and measurements that someone else will know
  • Assessment: The clinic is able to take reading and let me know if I am burning fat and not lean muscle. They are able to keep on eye on my progress to make sure I am losing the right weight and doing it in a healthy way.
  • Encouragement: Its so awesome going in and talking to other people on the diet. Everyone is encouraging and uplifting…they have a great cheerleading team.
  • Products: When you go into the clinic you can get shakes, snacks, meals and helpful things such as flax seed. So far I have gotten something new with every visit :)

When you get started they give you a medical assessment and create a perfect plan for you at your weight. You leave with a book to track your progress, ketosis strips, a way to measure your blood sugar and your HCG.

If you live in LA call (818) 241-2229 and schedule a free 10 minute consultation and at least hear what they have to say so you can decide if you are ready to embark on the journey to being your goal size.

I am going to be blogging and vlogging my journey to change my life using the HCG diet and the encouragement of the amazing people at SlimXpress. Stay tuned for more!

I am ready to say goodbye to the girl below…that is me on vacation last month…I looked AWFUL in a swimsuit!!
