I am so glad I decided to go to ELEVATION WEIGHT LOSS. It will be one year. I started this journey on June 26th 2017. After being diagnosed with a fatty liver and being put on diabetes meds., very high BP, and having my blood work always come back in the red I made my mind up I need to do something.
I work for the airlines and when I would fly I would secretly have to ask the flight attendant for a second seat belt because one did not fit and I would be so embarrassed. I was terrified of all the things wrong I could have with now being a diabetic. I was tired of my feet always being swollen and just feeling so blah. I made my appointment and told myself I could do this. I knew I had to.
I have three amazing grandsons and if I wanted to be around for them I knew I needed to get the weight off. Of course, it was hard in the beginning but now it is a piece of cake. I am used to my new eating habits and know what I can and can’t have. I pack my lunch almost every day for work but occasionally I do go out but I know how to order and eat healthy. I have a large cup of coffee and a bottle of water for breakfast and I am very satisfied with that. I actually look forward to the morning and getting my coffee (black of course). Lunch is small and a bottle of water and then I have a nice dinner and bottle of water and always an unsweet ice tea, and my snack is a bottle of water. I do not eat in between meals, no sugar, watch the carbs, smaller portions, nothing fried, and I push the water. I still go out to eat n to parties, etc. but I try and plan ahead and I definitely watch what I eat.
As of today, I have lost 82 lbs and still going. I am no longer on diabetes meds, my feet are not puffy, I have energy and feel so much better about myself, my labs are the best they have ever been, my BP is good, my repeat fatty liver scan showed much improvement, I am able to buy normal clothes, and my doctors are just thrilled and amazed that I did this. I can fly on a plane and not need the extra seat belt and that is such a great feeling. I am very lucky that I had the support of my friends and family and them giving me the encouragement to keep going. I have been to Cancun, a Cruise, the beach, etc. while being on this diet and had not one issue of wanting or craving anything. I actually lost 13 lbs when I came back from Cancun because I felt so great that I took water aerobics every morning and did a lot of swimming. I can walk two miles now and not get out of breath and not even sweat.
It is amazing how great I feel and I am so happy I did this BUT without Elevation Weight Loss I know I could not have done it. Elevation Weight Loss made it easy and I did not want or crave BUT I just wanted to keep going and lose more weight.
