Back in my wedding dress AFTER 23 years and 9 kids!
Hello, my name is Leanne Mennemeier and this is my story. I spent the majority of my life fat. I was born into a family of six children, three with good metabolism and three with not-so-good metabolism. The three lean ones could eat whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, and stayed thin, while the three chunky ones ‘watched’ and ‘limited’ what they ate, danced (the 2 girls) many hours a week, and stayed fat. It wasn’t fair; it just WAS. I joined Weight Watchers for the first time at just 10 years old! Thus began my career of dieting. I was a life-time Weight Watcher member several times (serving consecutive life-sentences, you might say).
As an adult, I faithfully tried every diet imaginable, from the ‘only eat cabbage’ diet to some of the expensive ‘eat only what they’ve sold you’ diets. I tried taking diet pills, exercising, and starving. It made me crabby, but not skinny (unless you count my face and chest). I would lose a few pounds, or occasionally even quite a bit, but it ALWAYS came back with a vengeance. I can’t tell you how frustrating and discouraging this was you either already know or you can’t imagine. My weight was always in the forefront of my mind. Activities that should be enjoyable like shopping, running into old friends or lying on a beach sparked emotions of dread and sometimes sheer terror or disgust. After my last baby, #9 (yes, nine), I had given up. I couldn’t bear the thought of beginning another weight loss program with an estimated goal date of eight months in the future to lose 45 pounds. I was resolved to the fact that I was just going to be fat the rest of my life why keep fighting the inevitable.
Then something happened that changed my life forever. My sister, Linda Prinster (yes, one of the chunky ones) read a book called ‘The Weight Loss Cure “They” Don’t Want You to Know About’ by Kevin Trudeau. The book referred to a doctor’s diet protocol that made perfect sense to her and explained our struggle in detail. She immersed herself in research. While the theory made perfect sense, it seemed too good to be true — a glimmer of hope after 35 years. When she told me the details about this protocol, I thought she was crazy. I knew dieting, and there couldn’t possibly be anything out there that would work the way she anticipated. Well, she did the diet and lost 20 lbs. in about a month. A fluke I reasoned as I counted my points used so far for the day. Then she helped my mom, my cousin, my friend….Hey, wait for me!
Here I am, 46 lbs. lighter and holding, having finished the diet in March of 2008. People tell me I look great for having nine kids but I think I look great ‘period’.
As for my sister, she’s since written a book on the protocol, HCG Weight Loss Cure Guide, and we coauthored a recipe book, 101 Worry-Free HCG Diet Recipes. After partnering with two former clients, a chiropractor and a psychologist, Pounds and Inches Away, Inc., was born. Pounds and Inches Away offers expert support with the HCG diet protocol as developed by Dr. ATW Simeons and referenced in Trudeau’s book. It works great for women and even better for men. We’ve helped hundreds of clients lose weight and, even more importantly, maintain the loss. MOST clients lose 20 30 pounds in about a month. We take great pride in stating that these RESULTS ARE TYPICAL! The protocol is life-changing for many participants, so be prepared.
I am thrilled with the fantastic results of this quick and easy diet. HCG has helped me lose weight rapidly and effectively with no side effects The Pounds and Inches staff is always available to answer questions and lend moral support if it is needed. I love my new look and the spring in my step. Hooray for HCG and pounds and Inches Away.

Like most people, I have always hated the dreaded word “diet”. To me it translates a person’s inability to keep oneself under control. To go on a diet meant sacrificing everything you like to eat and taking a long time to see any substantial results.
POUNDS AND INCHES AWAY is for real. When I began the program I did not know if I could stay with this system to lose weight, however the results were quick and the weight loss substantial, therefore it was easy to stay on track. I was able to lose over 30 pounds in just over three weeks and I couldn’t happier with the way I look and feel.

I was the typical yo-yo dietergainlose etc. At age 68 I decided I’d probably never be able to stay on a diet long enough to lose the 35 lbs I needed to lose. Viola! Enter Pounds and Inches Away! Extra weight gone and wonderful consulting along the way! I can’t say enough good things about the encouragement from the staff of Pounds and Inches Away. Bravo!!

Before going on HCG, I was miserable. I never imagined that I would be where I am today. I have lost 56 pounds and 65.5 inches. I have gone from a size 20 to a size 10 in 2 rounds of the HCG. Now, I am finding myself running up stairs where I used to drag myself up them. My stomach was so huge that I honestly thought I had a tumor in it. Needless to say, I feel great and I love trying on new clothes that I thought I would have never fit into again.

It’s a life saver for anybody who is trying to lose weight and has never been able to lose more than 2 or 3 pounds at a time and gain 3 or 4 back. I have, in forty days, lost 25 pounds. I started this diet well over size 12 and had bulges of fat hanging all over to here it is 40 days later…I am in what I call my skinny jeans’ and they are inches too big. My pants and clothes are falling off of me, so I will be going shopping because my small clothes are too big for me. It’s an easy diet to do. They set you up for nothing but success. They tell you step by step what you can have and as long as you follow the protocol of Dr. Simeons, they follow up with you and they answer any questions that you may have. It’s a great program. It’s not like you have to be somewhere every week. It is the convenience of me and a phone call and when I don’t have time to take the call, I can call them back. It’s been great. I will be back here again to do phase 2 [round 2] on this for sure and I will be at my dream weight at that point. So, I recommend this diet to everybody and their friends. And I tell everybody about it.

I really believe in Pounds and Inches Away. I have been overweight since I stopped smoking in 1996. I tried several diets with no success. My health for worse and my doctors insisted that I must lose weight. Again, I tried very hard with no result.
Then, I heard about Pounds and Inches and I thought I would give this diet a try. I’m thrilled to say it works!! I lost a total of 61 pounds and 38 1/2 inches off my body. My starting weight was 279 and now I weigh 218!! This is the best I have felt in years. I feel great and can’t wait to see the look on my doctor’s face! Thanks to the diet of Pounds and Inches Away. I have lost a lot of weight and I have learned the right and healthy way to eat.
I feel GREAT and I thank Pounds and Inches Away, Inc.

I would recommend this to anyone who has ever struggled with diets. It is amazing.

Before I started the Pounds and Inches Away diet, I had my doubts. I never expected such positive results. I work in the restaurant industry so I am constantly around food, and I never thought losing the weight that I did was possible.
I went from 215 lbs down to an incredible 180 lbs, and I kept it off! You have probably tried other diets like I have, and they probably have failed. So if you are serious about losing weight then stop dieting and get the cure: Pounds and Inches Away.

I lost almost 50 pounds the first round of HCG! It was so easy and I felt good the entire time I was doing the diet. I did a second round to get ready for a marathon. I lost another 10 above the first diet.
It helped to lower my blood pressure and all the aches and pains I had before have gone away. I felt like a 32 year old before the diet–out of shape and borderline high blood pressure. I could barely run 3 miles as I was considerably out of shape. After the diet I felt like I was 21 again. In October 08 (after my second round), I ran a half marathon. I plan to run a full marathon within the next 12 months. Thanks HCG!!!
