My name is Carrie, and this is my Before to Beyond Story…

My name is Carrie. In 2018 I was at my heaviest, felt miserable, and was ashamed of my body. I found a workout program online and joined…the curated meal plan, supplements, workouts, the whole shebang! I dropped 55 pounds and looked and felt the best I ever had. I was in the gym at 4:30 every morning, lifting weights before teaching 8 hours a day, doing HIIT cardio every night, eating 6 times a day, and drinking 2 gallons of water a day…I had done it and was so proud!

Then the pandemic happened. The gyms shut down, certain foods were very hard to get, and life had changed so much that it sent me into a tailspin. I converted a spare room into a home gym with all the lifting equipment, spin bike, and everything…but I couldn’t get myself motivated to work out; it just wasn’t the same. The weight stayed off, I continued eating clean and drinking lots of water. In 2021, I stopped working due to chronic severe headaches. I literally had a headache every day. And what happened when I stopped working? Yep, the weight slowly came back. My appetite was nonexistent; I was only consuming 900 calories daily. I sent my body into starvation mode and struggled to get my metabolism back on track. I definitely had weight that needed to come off. My cortisol levels were very high, I had vitamin deficiencies, no energy, lots of bloating and inflammation and was perimenopausal as well.

I learned about Beyond Slim from a former supervisor who thought ZipSlim might help with the headaches. I’ve tried everything else, so I thought, why not! In 6 short weeks I dropped 2 pants sizes, my mood stabilized, digestion is so much better, and bloating is under control. I’m sleeping so much better, I have more energy and don’t need that afternoon nap. I am happier!
