*Individual Results will Vary From Person to Person
On January 2, 2015 I had an appointment with SlimGENEration in Broken Arrow. I kept the appointment with mixed emotions, some expecting the same results as usual (little), some hopeful (maybe this time it will be different, but…probably not). I had almost cancelled my appointment several times, because I knew it would be expensive and I was tired of throwing away my money for something that sounded good, but didn’t work, at least not long term.
I weighed way too much (and still do) and was beginning to have trouble getting around physically.
There are so many embarrassing things about being overweight. You breathe hard, after just taking a few steps; you have a hard time reaching intimate places on your body when trying to stay clean.
Climbing stairs are painful, and God forbid if you are in front of someone in a hurry, you just step aside, let them pass and begin your laborious journey again. And this only scratches the surface, you also have the health issues that are life threatening. Sleep Apnea, the beginning stages of Diabetes or for some full-blown Diabetes, heart problems, and the list goes on and on.
I left my first appoint with Jessica Ford with hope for the first time in years. She was so knowledgeable and anticipated my questions and concerns. She was honest with me and told me I would probably never see 120 pounds again and explained why. I signed up for the program but still withheld my hope, because I had felt hopeful before and believed before and been completely disappointed.
My first appointment (a week later) I had weight loss! And the week after that, and the week after that! It has been 7 months now and almost every week there has been some improvement. I had a few weeks where I stayed the same, but almost always there was muscle gain and/or fat loss. And Jessica always has suggestions to help me stay on track and progress further. To date, I have lost a total of 52 1/2 pounds!
Recently my husband and I took a vacation to Utah and Colorado, in the mountains. When we arrived at the cabin that we had rented, we had to climb up 3 flights of stairs just to get in the door. A year ago, I would have been in a full-blown panic and would have been unable to navigate them without help. This time, I was able to keep up with my husband and climbed the stairs each day without a problem. I went golfing with him for the first time (bear in mind, this is at a high altitude) and had no problems. The altitude did not give my any problems as it had in the past. No high altitude headache, no difficulty breathing.
Every time my children see me (they are all grown and out of the house), they rave about how great I look, how much younger I look. Any of my extended family and friends that haven’t seen me for a while can’t believe it when they see me. My co-workers are amazed at the consistency of my weight loss and I have been told a few times “you need to lose that dress, skirt, shirt, etc., it is hanging off of you!” I have many stories of comments and positive things that have happened that I can’t even begin to tell them all. – Valerie Gill
I still have about 100 pounds to lose, but I am positive now that I can reach that goal. I am so glad that I
found Slim GENEration and so thankful for the way they are helping to improve my life!
