My Journey-Depressed To Impressed

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

My name is Cindy Drake and this is my “Before to Beyond” Story. Before starting this journey on November 1, 2023, I had given up and became so depressed. I went into a very dark hole. I had been in pain for 35 years. It started when I was 12 and got dragged by a horse, I went through many knee surgeries, until 3 knee replacements in my 30s and 40s. Then 10 years ago I started passing out, this led to a broken back in two places, three broken wrists incidents, wherein two were plated, and last year, got a shattered femur leading to a knee replacement. It was discovered my heart was not pumping enough blood, so I had a pacemaker. During this time we also lost five family members, one of them was my son. I just wanted to sit, I was in pain inside and out.

A few years later, I became pretty immobile. I could stand or walk for about 15 minutes then would have to sit. I tried literally every diet that came along and physical therapy. Then I saw Beyond Slim and read where some on it had rheumatoid arthritis and they were told by doctors they would be in a wheelchair soon. One of them was now walking. Being very skeptical, yet for some reason I believed them, I decided to try it.  What do I have to lose?

I am so very happy I took the chance and tried Beyond Slim!!! I started November 1 2023, and on November 10 my life changed drastically, so much so I still can’t believe it. First, I noticed things were not so fuzzy. I felt like I went from a regular old TV to a new HDTV. I never understood what brain fog was, but boy do I know now. I must have been in brain fog for many years. Then I realized I was getting out of the chair and bed with no pain. I could stand up straight and walk around the grocery store, the whole store not just a couple of aisles.

My husband cannot believe it either. He use to finish the shopping and I would go to the car. Then about five weeks later he says, I can’t keep up with you anymore as we were walking, so he has started taking ZipSlim too. We went to our daughter’s for Christmas, she hadn’t seen me since August. She was amazed how I was getting around and had so much energy, she even said I can’t keep up with you.

Beyond Slim is the best thing I have ever done for myself. I am recommending it to everyone who wants to take their life back. I am now going to concentrate and fine tune my diet to lose these extra 100 pounds and I am actually looking forward to this challenge.
