After being diagnosed as severely gluten intolerant, I had reached the point that I had accepted this was as good as it was going to get and that I was just going to be fat for the rest of my life. I cut out all gluten from my diet and you would think that just from cutting that many carbs I would have lost some weight but I was big as a house. I topped out at 303 and was retaining a ridiculous amount of water to the point I could barely move.
Seeing pictures of me was getting to be humiliating and painful but what could I do? I had tried numerous diets that if I lost any weight at all I would gain it back and then some. I looked at surgical options but the thought of gastric bypass was horrifying to me and lap-banding freaked me out. I was stuck.
Then a co-worker I hadn’t seen in a while lost 132 pounds with the program. She looked amazing! She lost a whole person worth of weight. So I decided to get started and met Kamalini over the phone.
The thing I like about the program is that it isn’t just the weight loss, it’s the support that impressed me. You actually get to transform you mind and body. Just a weight loss program is a recipe for disaster because if you don’t change what made you fat in the first place, you are ensured a return of the weight. Been there, done that!
I am stunned at how fast and how easy it has been. I have been tempted to cheat at times but either you are committed to changing your life or you aren’t and if you are you have to do what it takes to get the job done. When I have been tempted to cheat, I have learned to ask the question ‘Is my brain hungry or is my stomach hungry?”. I have learned that from the Habits of Health . Just learning to ask this question has been able to keep me on track. I still have a ways to go but this is one neck of a start!
