As a child of the clean your plate generation I have always had trouble pushing the plate away. I didn’t want to waste food and would stuff myself until I was full, not comfortable. When we went out to eat I always ordered the richest item on the menu. My diet consisted of pasta, bread, sweets, and sweet tea was my only beverage. It wasn’t that I didn’t like healthy food, I just didn’t eat that way.
As a result, I have always been one of those people who fights their weight. To make matters worse my doctor diagnosed me with hypothyroidism and asthma, so my body wasn’t going to make the fight any easier. I was continuously starving myself to lose a couple pounds just to gain it back a week later. There isn’t a fad diet or exercise program I didn’t try and fail. At one point I even had liposuction which was miserable and expensive. Everywhere we went I was comparing myself to other women, wishing I had their bodies or looked like them. I hated the way I looked and felt so I ate to feel better, which only made me feel worse.
When I started the program on 4/12/2018 I was a size 12/14 with a 37″ waist and weighed 170 pounds, at 5’2″ I was overweight, unhealthy and unhappy. My life has changed dramatically in the past 3 months. I started the program with the appetite suppressants and HCG shots for the first month. The second month I was taking the appetite suppressants and now I’m only taking a weekly B-12 shot. I have learned to eat smaller portions of healthier foods and I’m drinking lots of water.
On my last check in on 7/10/2018; I say with extreme pleasure I am down 30 pounds, weighing in at 140 pounds with a 28″ waist and wearing a size 7. I go to the gym 4 days a week and without all the extra weight I can work out without using my inhaler. I smile all the time and don’t compare myself to anybody. I feel beautiful in my own skin which is something I haven’t felt since junior high. My husband who has always been supportive and loving has seen the difference in my attitude and is so proud of my accomplishments. I have so much more energy and want to go out and do things. I am confident at my new healthy weight and happy to have found this life-changing program.
For anybody considering this option I can honestly say, if you follow the plan and stick with it, IT WILL WORK!
Thank you Elevation Medical Weight Loss for helping to make me a better version of myself.
