After having our four children in
less than three years, I struggled tremendously with my weight. I felt like my
appetite controlled me, instead of the other way around. My husband Mark worked two
full-time jobs and I was home alone with the children. Food was my friend, and I ate
all day long every day. At 5 foot 2, I weighed in at 180 pounds, and the size
18s just didnВ’t hide me as much as I wanted them to. I cried the day I
had to go shopping at Lane Bryant, (a “plus size store for women”).
After trying a number of
“diets” and failing, I sold all my “skinny” clothes in our garage
sale. I was depressed and resigned to being an “invisible, boring, overweight
mom” for the rest of my life. I was actually grateful that my husband was
putting on weight too, so I didnВ’t have to feel like Jack SpratВ’s wife. I
was exhausted, too, and at 31 years of age, everything was falling apart. My
health and my appearance took such a toll on my self-esteem that my marriage was being
affected and I was on the brink of losing everything. I had spent so much money on
weight-loss programs that our finances were even suffering. So when Mark brought
home a little card someone had placed on his truck that said “We Pay You to Lose
Weight”, I was desperate enough to call and find out more. After learning about
the 100% natural, doctor recommended products, I tried the Advanced Program and took the
action I needed to begin to change my life.
In 14 weeks, I lost 37 pounds and 36
inches. My size went from a 16/18 to a 6/8. My energy went through the
roof and I felt 10 years younger. I had total control over food for the first
time in my life. I didnВ’t even feel guilty eating a couple pieces of pizza with my
family on Friday night. I was getting total nutrition, total health and a
brand new body from these products and I was absolutely ecstatic!
That was 15 months ago. I am still an amazing, healthy size 6,
and I am still ecstatic! I am not boring, overweight, “invisible”, sick, tired
or depressed. Instead, I am excited, slender, alive, healthy, energized and absolutely
revitalized! I am thankful every day for this program.
P.S. I bought another size 4 dress last week and smiled all the
