I like so many others have attempted many times to lose weight without success. I went from diet to diet losing weight but always putting the weight back on and then some. I could only deny myself the foods I loved for so long. It was really difficult for me. I also thought that once I got the weight off things would be great and I could just go back to eating “normally” again.
I had begun watching a show called “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition." It was interesting to me. I saw all these different people losing large amounts of weight in what I would consider a short amount of time. It seemed too good to be true.
I began to see Chris Powell on other T.V. shows talking about weight loss and also learned that he had written a book that would be available in January of 2012. I decided to buy the book and see what his thoughts were on permanent weight loss. That was the best decision I had made in my lifelong dream to permanently lose my weight and keep it off. The book was so interesting and informative. I read the book in a day and decided I would give it a try. It all made sense to me. What was even better is that I learned that I did not have to deny myself the foods I loved!
Wanting more information I went to the Reshape the Nation website. There I have found so much information and a network of others who share their experiences on the program and also encourage you along the way. I am able to track my progress, get daily meal plans, view informative videos about food, fitness and so much more. I have never seen anything like it.
I began my journey five short weeks ago. In that time I have not only lost a total of nine pounds, but I have lost inches as well. I can already tell a difference in my clothes and I already feel so much better!
The program is so simple and something I KNOW that I can do for the rest of my life.
