I had just taken a new pretty high level job, in a new country, and relocated my big crazy family there. And now I was traveling more than 50% of the time, internatonal business class (yes please can i have some more wine), and found that the slightly uncomfortabe chubby me, was quickly heading to a much worse place.
Then I joined Ladimax, and in 6 months, I went from a size 16 (really pushing 18), to an 10. Forty pounds, and over 20 inches. Why did it work? It was sensible, eat better (and MORE), move more. I could do it in any hotel room in the world (and I’ve worked out in hotels on at least 4 continents now), and with very few execptions, I could make it work, even in challenging local business dinners.
But I didn’t do it alone. Having Nicole and Rene is great. but they are just 2 people. Having the group of women to connect with, to relate to and to discuss, rant, and celebrate with, I believe is one of the keys of success.
This has changed my life. I more than lost the pounds I have gained, but I am a smaller size than I ever have been, since I was in my 20s, and by far I’m fitter than I’ve ever been. I feel better on the outside and on the inside. I like what I see in the mirror. I like being fit, and what I can do with my kids.
In one year I lost 64.2 pounds and lost 27.75 inches. But it isn’t about what I lost. It is what I’ve gained. I’ve gained a knowledge of how to feed my body and how to move my body. I’ve gained a confidence to be able to meet the challenges of life and not let it lead me to one bad decision after another.
I’ve lost 15 lbs, lost multiple inches around my waist and hips, all while eating MEAT. I’m never starving, shaky, or hungry in the way that I’ve been on previous diets (hello Weight Watchers, I’m giving you the side eye). Why? Because Ladimax really is a lifestyle choice, not a diet. I don’t miss chocolate, bread or alcohol (ok who am I kidding, I miss alcohol alot). But Thanks to the encouragement and support and the MEAT I’m able to withstand the cravings because I have goals.
Bump being old at 50. 50 is just the beginning!
