Day 30: 30 Days of Hope

Standard

Kipp

WOW…Listen to Kipp’s story: “”Seven years ago I had lost all hope that I would win my lifelong battle with weight and ever be healthy. I decided the only thing left for me was to have a gastric bypass. Thankfully, my wife said I had to try one more thing before I had any surgery. I decided to go on the Take Shape For Life program that our friends had been telling me about for an entire year. I begrudgingly went on the program fully believing it would not work and determined to prove it. I have never been so happy to be wrong about something. Not only did the program work, it worked better than I ever thought possible. My original weight loss was 107 lbs* and today, 7 years later, I am healthy, happy, and thriving!” Kipp not only lost the weight, but he has KEPT it off!

30 Days ago, I began my 30 Days of Hope, sharing the journeys of 30 + individuals.  In 30 days, the lives and bodies of my current clients have changed. They have lost over 300 pounds this April.

What has changed in your life in the last 30 days?

Are you healthier? Leaner? Slimmer?

If not, what exactly are you waiting for?

Your invitation has already been delivered. What you choose to do with it is up to you.

Here is MIchele’s story:
“I have been overweight my whole life. I have been on A LOT of diets but yet I found myself still struggling with my weight. I work full time and I have two small children. My life is busy and I had little time to take care of myself… or so I thought. I was introduced to this program and it has changed my life! I have lost 65 pounds on this program with the help of my health coach! I have gone from an embarrassing size 18 to a fabulous size 6! Woohoo! I now have the energy and confidence I have dreamed of… that is why I am now helping others get healthy!”

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!”

Meet Laura and here is her story: “I lost 40 pounds in 4-1/2 months, and went from a BMI of 33 to 27! Before finding this program I found every diet I tried worked but with a lot of effort, and I was often hungry. I have been thrilled with this program, and have found that it encourages me to eat frequently, which really works for me. I am still working on the last 10 pounds, but I know that with my healthy habits it will happen. I think I have really achieved a balance of good choices. The program really works!”

Bob

 

Imagine living in a body so big that you couldn’t bend over and tie your own shoes.  Imagine having to custom order clothing because nothing carried in stores would fit.  That’s what Bob’s life USED to be like.

Now imagine living in a body that can rock climb, hike, run, surf, and can shop OFF THE RACK.  That’s what Bob’s life looks like now.

Oils and Addiction

While essential oils can’t “cure” addictions, they can certainly help combat addictive symptoms and minimize or even eliminate mild to persistent cravings.  This week, as I focus on addiction, I thought it would be helpful to offer some essential oils information for treating addiction/cravings.

Below are the various essential oils and the addictions they assist in managing (this list is by no means comprehensive):

1. Clove
