My Secret Weapon To Simple Weightloss

By on September 28, 2012

Have you tried every diet, pill and shake but still can’t lose weight?

Check out my secret weapon!

It’s time, time to share my journey to better health not only emotionally, but physically. If you are anything like I was you look at yourself much differently, more critically than anyone else does. You probably think like I did of a million reasons why dieting or pills or plans won’t work for you. Do you find you are harder on yourself than anyone else is? I know I sure did.

It wasn’t until I saw this picture; the one above with me holding my new grandson, Thaedrin in the pool in Hawaii that I knew it was time. I had to get my head straight, find a plan that would work for me and get started shedding those ugly pounds of fat that clung to my body. It was time for me to STOP being the FAT grandma and slim down to become the fiery grandma that I was inside…the one that was screaming to get out.

My weight loss story began to come together in April 2011 when I was introduced to a product called Protandim. You can learn more about that later but it is a critical part of my weight loss because it gave my body what I needed…to feel better. Once I felt better I wanted to do something about my weight and how I looked once and for all.

This picture is of me at a business conference in Dallas, Texas back in December of 2010. Little did I realize that my life was about to change so drastically. Networking with business men and women from across the country and world for that matter exposed me to ideas that were new, innovative and exciting. This conference would set the stage that allowed me to regain my confidence, health and develop a healthy attitude towards taking off weight. I would learn the importance of having a coach both in business and in life, even in weight loss.

Why is it the things we did to lose weight when we were younger aren’t working anymore? When we were in our twenties and even thirties, we could give up pizza and beer for a few days and get back into our skinny jeans. But now, it seems like no matter what we do…that belly fat won’t budge! Not only won’t it budge, it keeps on growing!

If you’re in that situation, don’t give up. You aren’t alone that’s exactly where I was a few months ago. You see, I’ve always struggled with my weight. Right along with my mom and sisters, we have tried every diet, pill and shake out there. Sure we lost some weight, but always gained it back plus some.

Then, six years ago I came home to work our new auto transport business. With all the hours I worked I found myself NOT eating. Grabbing a quick cup of coffee and calling it good. Each time I would try to leave the office for a quick bite the phone would ring and back I’d go.

Finally, come dinner time I would be famished. Anything and everything smelled and tasted great, too great! I didn’t just eat dinner, I inhaled it. No wonder my blood sugar and insulin levels were whacked out, right?

Then I met Renee. She shared a fabulous, simple diet program that would help me eat small, quick meals that were convenient, no cooking. That worked for me. I could eat them at my desk, even in between phone calls.

It didn’t take much talking, I was ready to start. I was sick and tired of being a fat grandma. I was tired of denying my weight and how I looked. I wanted to be in the pictures with my grandkids, not the one taking the pictures.

By the end of my second week eating the “grab and go” meals I have lost 9 pounds and gone from pushing a 20W pant size to a 16 Misses! If I can do it , so can you.

Week 6 and another two pounds gone, this makes for a grand total of twelve pounds melted away to date. Grabbed this pair of jeans this morning without looking. They were so baggy that I thought they belonged to my husband. I could get another set of cheeks in the seat of them My blouses no longer show rolls of my belly and are actually too big as well. I am now in a size 14 Misses and still losing weight weekly.

Week 7 and another three pounds gone making for a grand total of fifteen pounds lost. Today I grabbed a pair of new sandals as I was running out the door. They were too loose so I stopped to tighten the strap. Drats! The velcro straps were already as tight as they could be…I am losing weight in my feet, how does that happen? All I can say is I am eating my way thin and you can, too.

Week 8 flew by and we traveled out of town for three days. Even being out of my controlled environment at home my weightloss continues. This week another two pounds melted away bringing my total to seventeen pounds of fat…gone!

Here it is month 4 and I’ve lost a total of 30 pounds and 4 1/2 sizes. I’m half way to my goal and feeling incredible. I have to brag a little here because I ran into an old high school friend after years of not seeing them. They told me I looked better than when I was in my thirties. I wasn’t sure if that was a compliment or a dig…I accepted it as a compliment and am feeling better than in my twenties.

Eleven months on the program and I’m amazed at the results. Although I travel more than most it’s simple to take my plan with me. My food choices when traveling are now smarter choices. I recognize how much to eat and in what combinations to eat it. I even spent the day at Disneyland while on my plan and guess what? I didn’t gain an ounce, I felt incredibly energized all day long and my endurance surprised those I spent the day with!

Check this out…from a size 20 women to a size 12 misses, 54 pounds to date and still working towards my goal. See for yourself this picture was taken in May of 2012, what do you like about my new look?

Your help is here! Help in the form of a super simple, “fool-proofsimple weight loss program that teaches you how to eat 6 small, balanced meals in the day, crank up your metabolism and torch your body fat!

The key to your success is in your attitude and willingness to use the tools available in the program. I owe part of my success to my coach who was there for me when I had questions and concerns or felt weak.

This program works for everyone who goes on it! It doesn’t pick and choose. Yes…it works if you are menopausal, are hypothyroid, have 10 pounds to lose or have 150 pounds to lose. It even works if you sit behind a desk all day or drive a semi-truck hours on end.

Imagine being 10 pounds lighter in less than 3 weeks!

Here’s an interesting question to ask yourself.

What will you think about when you are no longer consumed with thoughts about what to eat, when to shop for it, how to make it, prepare it, clean up after preparing it, think about what you are going to have for your next meal…….

How about where to go to buy the hottest pair of skinny jeans?
