"Straight up-this program works! I have lost 7 pounds and 6 inches (specifically 5.25 in my mid section). I have always been blessed with a high metabolism. However, I took advantage of it for many years. I was a junk food junkie. My friends and I would laugh, but I called myself skinny fat. I loved foods filled with nothing other than BAD FATS. I loved chips, dips, cookies, candy, soft drinks, etc.! But, guess what? It caught up with me.
Looking at my physical appearance you probably wouldn’t have noticed. I was 128 pounds. 128 pounds is a good number, right? The truth is my insides were saying otherwise. I was hurting. I was upset. I hated the way I felt. Every morning I would wake up feeling tired and sluggish. Many days I wanted to crawl back in bed after my kids left for school. I had extremely high anxiety with an elevated resting heart rate of 90-100s (several doctor visits-trying to determine what was wrong), stomach issues, swollen legs and feet, and the never-ending bloated feeling.
I quickly learned within 1 week of the FWTFL, why a number that you see on the scale (128 pounds) means absolutely nothing! It’s a number and nothing else. Fast forward 7 weeks and here’s what my non-scale victories have been. Sluggish mornings have turned into positive thoughts, high energy, and getting my day started with a nice cup of coffee. My anxiety is so much better. My resting heart rate- i’m seeing numbers in the 70s! When I think about it, I seriously get tears in my eyes. This has been a battle for so long. I can’t even tell you how happy this makes me feel! I have always chalked my swollen legs and ankles to a side effect of my birth control pill. I’ve found out through the program, I have less swelling because of my proper nutrition. Oh, and the bloating-well, I think my numbers prove this. 5.25 inches have melted away in my mid-section! My mood has improved drastically.
I’m gaining my confidence back. I have control over my body and my health. These positive effects are making me a better person, wife, mother, and friend!”
