The Scariest Thing Ever
It's funny the things that cause us to fear. For some people, it's public speaking. I love public speaking. For others it's heights. Not too fond of that. Some people love attention. While I seem very outgoing, some types of attention bring me great fear! I post occasional selfies on FB, but that's just when I'm feeling a bit silly. But this. What I am about to do, makes my knees knock. I don't know why. I am sure if I asked myself some good questions, I'd get to the bottom of it. But, I'm going to do it anyway, because that's how I roll with fear.
I'm going to skip the weight gain story. You can read about that here:
Here's wear it gets really scary. I am posting my before, before, and during pictures. Eventually I will be so excited to share an after picture. That day is coming soon. 🙂 But for now. Here we go. Fear factor and all.
One year ago, I looked like this.
That one's not so scary. Before, my face in 2014 and Feb. this year. Ok, here we go.
This was March 2014. I took this picture before starting some other products that I would not say were nutritional necessarily, but herbal. I weighed 195 pounds. I tried those products for 8 months and did not find they did much for me in terms of WEIGHT loss. You will see in the next pictures that I am a little leaner. But I weighed 193 when I started Isagenix. No offense intended, but when I read the back label of the other "multi-vitamin" I laughed out loud. I've been studying nutrition for nearly thirty years. It didn't have a lot of MULTI.
A small difference, but for the money I spent over time, I did not feel it was money well spent. I tried every combination of their products and this was the improvement. Having said that, during that time, I also picked up Zumba twice a week. So, it could have been the fact that I was moving my waist and booty.
And NOW. I do love these pictures a bit more. 20 pounds of loss, which when I was a young chiquita I could have literally done in six weeks. But now I have this extreme hypoglycemia deal going on that makes weight loss nearly IMPOSSIBLE. Until now. Haha. And they are NUTRITIONAL products.
- 23 vitamins and minerals
- Protein, energy-fueling carbs, and good fats
- High-fiber content and active enzymes aid digestion
I FEEL so much better. I LOOK so much better. I get compliments everywhere I go, and while that's NOT what it's about, it sure feels nice. My ankles had turned to cankles, but now my ankels are back. My fingers are thin, and my finer features are coming back. I have worked very hard. Not just on this nutritional program, but continuing my exercise program, making permanent changes, working on the thoughts in my head, and working on bad habits. I have ten more pounds. I do actually still have a little roll. Ten more pounds is NOT my dream weight. I am not going for my dream weight. I am going for a healthy 48 year old woman weight. And I'm excited. For the first time in six years, I KNOW I will reach my goal and I have a maintenance plan after.
