Joyce R’s Journey to Weight Loss

When a woman turns a certain age her whole-body changes. Well, when I turned 50 I looked at pictures of myself that were taken at my 50th party and I thought to myself “What happened to me”? I was at least 40 lbs overweight. I was miserable. So, I mentally got my mind set to start watching what I ate and to start taking better care of myself.  I did do just that, and I lost 40 lbs!

It was very slow and hard to do! I slowly became more active, started to exercise, do 5K walks, weight training, the works. I felt awesome. I kept that weight off for over 4 years. Then in one day, my life changed drastically. The heartache, loss, and circumstances that I was dealing with left me extremely stressed and depressed. It led me to eat constantly. Eating seemed to be the only thing that made me happy and it didn’t take any thinking to do it. 

I ate my way to gaining all 40 lbs back and more all in one year. I stopped exercising and walking. I did nothing but work, eat and lay around. I was miserable. I tried several times and several ways to diet and get the weight back off. Nothing would work! The weight gain made me even more depressed. Finally, a friend told me about Elevation Weight Loss. I wasn’t thrilled about trying it but after realizing that I could not mentally lose the weight myself I called and made an appointment. I met with the doctor, received my pills, shots, and information and left thinking this will never work! One week later when I went to weigh in I had lost 6.4 lbs. I was so amazed and so happy! It worked! The pills curbed my appetite enough to make me not eat as much or to crave things. I drank water again because I was thirsty, and it tasted good. I continued the next week watching my calorie intake, which wasn’t really that hard because I just wasn’t hungry. The weight continued to come off every week.

In a little under three months, I had lost 22 lbs. and several inches. My attitude changed, and depression started to leave. I felt so much better, happier and active again. I started to get back to being myself. I can’t even explain how Elevation has helped me in so many ways. If your overweight and it’s making you miserable, depressed, unhealthy and you just can’t lose the weight then try Elevation. It’s easy and wonderful. The ladies are all so nice and so encouraging. I still have a few pounds to lose but I know I can do it!
