After having our four children in less than three years

After having our four children in less than three years

After having our four children in less than three years, I struggled tremendously with my weight. I felt like my appetite controlled me, instead of the other way around. My husband Mark worked two full-time jobs and I was home alone with the children. Food was my friend, and I ate all day long every day. At 5 foot 2, I weighed in at 180 pounds, and the size 18s just didn’t hide me as much as I wanted them to. I cried the day I had to go shopping at Lane Bryant, (a "plus size store for women").

After trying a number of "diets" and failing, I sold all my "skinny" clothes in our garage sale. I was depressed and resigned to being an "invisible, boring, overweight mom" for the rest of my life. I was actually grateful that my husband was putting on weight too, so I didn’t have to feel like Jack Sprat’s wife. I was exhausted, too, and at 31 years of age, everything was falling apart. My health and my appearance took such a toll on my self-esteem that my marriage was being affected and I was on the brink of losing everything. I had spent so much money on weight-loss programs that our finances were even suffering. So when Mark brought home a little card someone had placed on his truck that said "We Pay You to Lose Weight", I was desperate enough to call and find out more. After learning about the 100% natural, doctor recommended products, I tried the Advanced Program and took the action I needed to begin to change my life.

In 14 weeks, I lost 37 pounds and 36 inches. My size went from a 16/18 to a 6/8. My energy went through the roof and I felt 10 years younger. I had total control over food for the first time in my life. I didn’t even feel guilty eating a couple pieces of pizza with my family on Friday night. I was getting total nutrition, total health and a brand new body from these products and I was absolutely ecstatic!

That was 15 months ago. I am still an amazing, healthy size 6, and I am still ecstatic! I am not boring, overweight, "invisible", sick, tired or depressed. Instead, I am excited, slender, alive, healthy, energized and absolutely revitalized! I am thankful every day for this program.

P.S. I bought another size 4 dress last week and smiled all the way home!
