Day 2: 30 Days of hope

Standard

sarah1Sarah’s Story – I turned to this program in desperation after yo-yo’ing for years on other “diets” that were able to get the weight off, but left me clueless once I got there. I would celebrate my “success” by eating all my favorite foods and the weight always came back worse than the last time. I didn’t realize that my health was any more than a number on a scale. After another depressing yo-yo diet, I turned to this program in desperation after seeing a family members rapid, and seemingly painless success. From day one, I dove into the program materials, tapped into all the support resources, and in just under three months, I had once again reached my goal weight, but this time, I had the confidence to finally throw out my “fat pants” since I knew I’d never need them again. I had lost 35 pounds and gained a new respect for myself. I literally didn’t ever want to eat like I had been eating before. I fully understood why my health was worth it and love my new healthy lifestyle. Whereas before I had literally no mental tools to protect my goals, I was now filled with strategies to safeguard my success and over a year later, I’m still maintaining my healthy weight and haven’t looked back once. I’ve inspired my husband and children to get excited about health as well and have overheard my six year old trying to explain the joyous merits of eating “lean and green” to her little play friends. I’m so glad for my coach, who shared this with me.”

In May 2011, I hit an all time low in my life and an all time high in my weight. I was 199 pounds and the idea of hitting 200 scared me. I had tried every known diet, HCG, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Atkins, the grapefruit diet. I'd even tried Phen-phen when I was younger and Dexatrim before that. While I'd lose a little weight, I would always gain it back and then more. I knew the yo-yo dieting was not healthy for my body and it was definitely wreaking havoc on my mental wellness. I didn't know what to do and I was looking into taking drastic surgical measures to lose weight. That's when a friend of mine told me his story about losing over 200 pounds without pills, surgery, or starving himself. Not only did he lose the weight, but he kept it off. What did I have to lose? I asked him to share the secret with me. Now, only six short months later, I weigh 140 lbs and am working on losing 5 more. That will put me back to my weight that I was in HS, college, and before I had children. And I've done it with my friend's help as my Health Coach, without starving or even exercising, although I love to walk everyday. I haven't felt hungry at all in this process. How many "diets" can say that? I feel fantastic! I've felt great since the first week on this program. Let me be very clear about this. This is NOT a diet. This is not something you do for a little while, lose the weight, then go back to your old eating habits. This program is a life changing plan to help you eat healthier, make food choices that are tailored to your body, and bring you to a state of optimal physical health. If like me, you are tired of diets that don't work, then let me show you a life style plan that does.
