Most of my teenage and adult life I struggling with 15 sticky lbs. To some that may be insignificant, but I lost and gained the same 15lbs over 20 times in my life not counting 3 pregnancies (one I gained 60 lbs) – so that’s over 300lbs – I was a self-proclaimed serial dieter.
It was easy to avoid social situations using work as an excuse because I was ashamed how I looked. I was very frustrated with my inability to maintain the weight loss after trying multiple programs. No matter how much I food prepped, bought organic, exercised daily and followed a clean eating regime, I was lacking energy, totally overwhelmed and exhausted. Plus I was locked out of my closet. What scared me the most, was that I would enter mid-life and not enjoy my adult children and future extended family to the fullest. I was so frustrated but maintained hope that I could find a solution. What I didn't realize was it was not my fault.
Luck, Fate, Faith or whatever you call it! I am eternally grateful to my childhood friend Stacy for introducing me to a nutritionally supported cleansing program. Together with my husband, Jason, we embarked on this program fully thinking it would be another failed attempt. As a result of the program, we both released over 25 lbs of toxic fat, are saying YES to social situations and new adventures, more confident knowing we can be successful and have an abundance of energy. Our marriage has a new life.
I feel re-energized, liberated from the old ways of living, and excited about sharing my experience to help others achieve their goals and live out their dreams.
