When I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted… discouraged… and defeated!
The negative talk and gremlins of self-hate and judgment were ever-present.
- “How could I have let myself get this big?”
- “Why did I let myself get to feeling this bad? “
- “What happened to my confidence, charm, and radiance?”
I loathed myself instead of loving myself.
No wonder I would struggle to get through each day. I was lethargic, exhausted, swollen with tons of inflammation, and struggled to find any positivity.
I had never been an emotional eater… but that had changed. I was emotional… and was an eater… all day and night long! It was nothing for me to snack all day and night on top of my meals and then to sneak downstairs in the middle of the night and polish off a bag of chips or an entire package of cookies.
I weighed 1 pound more than I did at my highest weight… and that weight was the day I delivered my son 30 years ago!
How did I ever let myself get to the weight of a woman that was 9 months pregnant ready to deliver a baby? I was huge then! I had put on 86 pounds with that pregnancy.
I was in so much pain, I could hardly walk.
On January 1, 2021, I woke up and decided something had to change. My friend Sarah had posted on Facebook that she was releasing weight in a way that was fun, non-restrictive, and even tasted delicious. Curiosity got the cat. I wanted to know more.
I was not up for much and thought if it tasted bad or was too hard, I would give up on myself and my health again (like I had grown accustomed to) and just return the product. After all, it had a money-back guarantee. She promised me it tasted good, so I talked my husband into trying it with me.
At the same time, I accepted a challenge along with some of my team members to raise awareness about changing our world and to help begin a global transformation movement by walking a 5K. I did not know how I would walk that far. I could hardly walk to the bathroom without hurting so bad that I would have to sit down.
I knew that to create transformation around me, I would need to create transformation within me. I hoped that the ZipSlim® and the Beyond Slim® Metabolic Reboot® program would provide the tools to accomplish this. So, I doubled down on my effort using this multi-motivation, thinking it would be good training to walk for my 30 minutes of activity in the 9 Reboot Rituals and start preparing for the 5K (still secretly telling myself that if I could not do it, I would just go as far as I could and quit).
Within just a couple of days I had this amazing sense of euphoria, there was a noticeable increase in my energy, and I committed to doing the 9 Reboot Rituals… so I was moving (slowly and not very far… but it was a start).
By the end of the first week, I was releasing weight and negativity. I was starting to feel like I could do this! I was convinced that I was worth it again. I deserved to be fitter, healthier, and happier! I was not going to give up on myself. I also booked my flight for the 5K. I began creating the best me!
By focusing on progress over perfection I chose to make changes to my daily habits with ease and grace. I couldn’t believe how simple and easy it was with the Metabolic Reboot® program.
Overall, I’ve released 25 pounds, 27 inches, and 6.25 inches off my belly so far!!
I loved that it was not just about releasing weight… but that it truly is about what is BEYOND being slim.
I traded my JIGGLES FOR GIGGLES again!
I am Fitter… I am Healthier… I am Happy (not just happier)!!
It feels great not to struggle to get through each day… and I have SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETED A 5K!
