Add to that a diet of junk food and Diet Mountain Dew, and I was playing Russian roulette with my life. I needed to stop, but didn’t know how.
When it came to getting fit, I had as many “I Can’ts” as I had medical issues. But after reading a few “success stories”—just like this one, I got a Coach and he recommended Power 90. I forced the issue by posting my “before” pictures on Facebook for all my friends and family to see. Talk about fully committing. There was no way to back out now. It didn’t matter how old and tired I felt, I couldn’t allow myself to fail in front of the people I love.
Then I addressed my diet. It took me two weeks to wean myself off of Diet Mt. Dew, but I did with the help of Shakeology. Shakeology was amazing, I suddenly had energy and didn’t crave the caffeine at all. Next, I replaced the junk with much healthier foods and I began to feel better almost instantly.
I lost 26 inches and over 10% of my body fat. I can do push-ups and jumping jacks and moves I never thought I could. I feel amazing! The best part of all, I’m not taking any more medication. I have no arthritis pain, no heartburn and absolutely no symptoms from diverticulosis. At 46, I feel better than I did at 36. You just can’t beat that!
