Well, this has been a very exciting week, along with the Besties we are down 10-12 pounds each. What better way to see how one of the Besties is doing then to hear it for yourself but first…. Some new product information on the weight management program.
Last week I shared the detox formulas this week it is all about hormones. We are using a homeopathic formula called the Hormone Combination. The hormone combination is designed to reestablish balance between hormones. If a hormone is low, it is likely due to the fact that the body is producing excess cortisol. The hormone combination manages symptom of hormone disruption such as weight gain, fatigue, and inability to cope with stress.
From one of the Besties on this journey with me…
Have you ever stepped on the scale and cried tears of joy instead of frustration? Well, that has been me, happy as a clam, the past few weeks as I jumped onto this journey with Brenda to test the Evolution Weight Management system. About 10 years ago, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism and this was after weighing more than I had my entire life. I have not ever stopped working out during this time but my weight gain was not all attributed to added muscle. My diet was better than anyone I knew. Then paleo hit, and I started eating the caveman way and lost about 18 lbs in four months – and this was over the holidays! But then, after about a year, my thyroid meds stopped working and my weight kept creeping up until I gained 30+ pounds and weighed more than I did while I was pregnant. So for the past two years, I attempted a few diets, none of which worked – strict paleo again, vegetarian, all animal fat and protein, Whole Life Challenge – none of which worked for all my sacrificing. I switched internists, got more blood tests, and found Brenda!
Brenda was able to help boost my thyroid back into action, but that doesn’t make the weight drop off! I also had my hormones checked and my progesterone and testosterone are very low, due to my early onset menopause. I was told by the doctor that I could take bio-identical hormones, and all my weight would drop off and I would feel so much better! They are all natural, blah, blah, blah. I have researched those “all natural” bio-identical hormones and the jury is still out about how “safe” they really are. However, without them, how was I going to get this extra tire off around my middle???
About a month ago, Brenda called me to tell me about the Evolution Weight Management system, a 500 calorie diet for more sedentary people and a 1,000 calorie a day diet for us workout addicts! I read the information that explained the program targets the non-essential fat in your body (like around my waist!) and I was immediately on board. The program comes with a calendar for the 42 or 28 day program that you can check off every day that you have taken your drops, and another worksheet to log your daily weight (loss), along with exercise and weekly body measurements. In a little over two weeks, I have lost 12.5 lbs., mostly in my waist. I have a few weeks left and there is also a maintenance program to help keep your body on track. I am already so much happier with what I have accomplished and it is encouraging to hear from Brenda every day about how much weight she has also lost. The best part is having Brenda as a coach to “stay the course.” It takes some commitment to follow the guidelines but as long as you plan out the food you buy, it is quite easy to follow. I have been able to continue all my normal workouts and I feel great!
