After turning 35 and having spent a weekend with my friends I saw pictures of me posted on Facebook and thought “do I really look THAT bad?”
I knew right then I had to do SOMETHING! That something I was unsure of yet, until I saw a post from an acquaintance on Facebook about how she had found this amazing program, blah, blah, blah, my first thought was yeah whatever, but I told her I wanted more info on it just to see what it was. Keep in mind I knew this person but I didn’t KNOW her so I was a little nervous for the call. When she called me and told me about it, sounded a bit to good to be true, but I thought what the heck, I am not out anything for trying it, and I can send it back if I hate it. So I signed up!!!!
On March 16th, 2010 I started this process, still thinking to myself this is NEVER going to work for me that I will be that exception… Day 1 was pretty easy I was pumped to do this and I was so worried I was going to screw it up it kept my mind occupied of it… Day 2 was a bit harder but I made it through… Day 3 oh gosh, at this point I was thinking what the heck have I gotten myself into here. I was crabby, hungry, tired but I thought I have to at least give this a week…. Day 4 I woke up and felt different. I had energy like you wouldn’t believe, I wasn’t hungry , nor was I crabby. I was hooked from there on. Now don’t get me wrong, we all have days but I never gave up…. So brings me to my first weigh in day I lost 5 POUNDS my first week, I was so excited I wanted more and more. Then it happened, people started noticing at about 25 pounds, keep in mind I had said nothing to anyone except my husband and a couple good friends, I didn’t want to fail and have people be like think she couldn’t do it AGAIN, I had long felt I was doomed to be fat, it was in my genes there was no changing it. When I would go out I was the fat girl, most of my friends were smaller than me, I had learned to accept that. So for me people noticing was very strange and I didn’t really know what to say, I could no longer keep it a secret!!!
Fast forward to now, I have lost 75 POUNDS! I never in a million years thought I would be saying that. I feel fabulous, it is so fun to shop now, instead of saying can you bring me a bigger size I have to say can you bring me a smaller size!!!!!
