Not only did this program help me lose my first 25 lbs, an average of 3 pounds a week, it helped cure my chronic periodontal disease, got me back on my bicycle which I love riding, and helped my knees to stop aching so much from the weight.
Seeing my scale climb back up to nearly 220 lbs. was worrisome. I had seen that number come and go before, but I had promised myself that I wouldn’t let it happen again. Life stressers and personal choices not only pushed my weight up again, but my cholesterol was high and my doctor was insisting I take the poisonous medicine. I knew that taking the medicine was not only a personal defeat, it was starting a cycle of treating the symptom, not the problem, which would cause other symptoms needed other meds… ad nauseum. However, I was frustrated knowing, finally accepting, the fact that I just didn’t have the will power to figure it all out and do it on my own. I also have to admit that I am much less self conscious having lost the weight and inches. Imagine my surprise after wearing size 18 pants for 7 years to finally be able to squeeze into a 12! How wonderful to hear from my family and friends, “You are looking WONDERFUL!” How wonderful to have the energy and agility to play “hide and seek” with my grandkids once again!
