Day 24: 30 Days of Hope


A truly inspiring couple! Bil and Julia: “In 2007, Bil began the process of qualifying for gastric bypass surgery. It was a scary thing for us to think about but his weight was at a point where he needed some dramatic help. After trying so many weight loss programs, we felt surgery was his last option. In order to qualify for the surgery he needed to lose 5% of his body weight. So we started looking for something that might help. We came across this program through his parents who also had great success on it. He started the program the week before Thanksgiving 2007. It was so easy and worked so well that soon we knew he wouldn’t need the surgery. Within 13 months he had lost 140 lbs without surgery. Julia was so inspired by his weight loss and how easy the program was, she also tried it and lost 35 lbs in 4 months. Our lives have literally changed. We are now able to live our dream of owning a small farm and we have the ability to raise our three daughters so much more interactively. We are no longer exhausted observers; now we get to participate with energy to spare!”



About leisatwatkins

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.
