My Life Changed After Getting Older And Having Children
I managed to stay fit and healthy when I was younger. In college, I loved
nothing more than wearing a bikini and going to the beach with my
I still remember all the guys “looking” my way.
Even though I acted like it bothered me, I can admit now getting all that
extra attention felt really good.
I never imagined that as I got older, I would miss the “good old days” of
guys hitting on me.
But, there I was.
My marriage lacked the “fire” it once had. I stopped being “intimate”
with my husband. He thought that I wasn’t attracted to him anymore.
But really – I felt so fat and ugly that the thought of him seeing me naked
made me sick.
I was so tired of the roller coaster I truly felt like I was…
Doomed To A Life Of Being Overweight!
My health was faltering. It was one thing to be upset about the rolls
hanging off my belly or the love handles that made every top look
terrible or the way my thighs made my jeans appear to be holding back
It was more than that. As my weight crept up over the years so had my
blood pressure and cholesterol. Doctor visits turned into scolding
sessions about how my weight was the cause of everything wrong with
me! Even a headache!
And going through menopause with severe obesity was NOT something
I wanted to do.
And That’s When I Got Serious & Started Looking for Answers
I spoke to a good friend of mine who had lost weight following a
program she found on the internet. I’ve always been skeptical about
things I see online – they always seem to say one thing then give you
But my friend swore by this program and told me all about it. It worked
for her, she said, because she was able to customize the food plan and
she didn’t really have to exercise at all.
She had me hooked when she said “No Exercise”. At my age my body is
just so worn out I don’t have the energy or stamina to go to the gym
with a bunch of young girls making me look like a fool!
So my friend told me more about this simple, customized plan.
She explained the idea of switching our “bodies fuel”. Women
especially deal with this. Our bodies are basically running on sugar or
“glucose” all day long. This is why we crave chocolate and sugary drinks
all the time. And the more of it we eat the more we crave it!
But there’s a better fuel for us. One that runs off “fat”. If you can get
your body to burn fat for energy, that’s the real trick to losing weight
In fact, once you switch to fat burning mode – you don’t even want to
I was blown away with everything I was hearing!
The “easy” way to get into fat burning mode, she said, was to eat certain
foods while staying away from a few foods that are bad for you anyway.
She went on to explain a bunch of science stuff, but I tuned out at that
point lol. I just wanted to try it for myself and see what happens!
I Mean, If This Plan Could Work For Her… Doesn’t It Stand To
Reason It Could Work For Me Too?
Instantly I was blown away. All my favorite foods were there and it told
me EXACTLY what to eat for each meal. All the recipes too! And even a
grocery list I was able to print right off and take with me to the grocery
store. It couldn’t have been more convenient.
Well, actually it could. Because the program also gave me options for
eating out too! I could replace any meal I wanted with a restaurant or fast
food options. I was in heaven!
