WEIGHT LOSS I lost 29 pounds—and I don't miss one of them!
DRESS SIZE I was wearing a size 10. I now wear a size 2!
BY THE NUMBERS I lost 17% of my body weight in just ten weeks. I lost five inches from each thigh, and my body mass index (BMI) dropped from 24 to 20. I can also run twice as fast as I did before!
A FAMILY AFFAIR When I started the Lean For Life® program, my husband and daughter decided they wanted to eat better as well. While neither of them formally did the program, they definitely changed how and what they ate. As a result, our entire family is leaner, healthier and happier.
RAPID RESULTS It was easy to stay motivated because I started seeing results right away. I also loved that the program was customized to my needs, schedule and lifestyle.
SECRET WEAPON The Lindora Daily Action Plan was—and still is—my lifeline. I carry it in my purse and write down everything I eat, no matter what. Being accountable for everything I ate or drank kept me conscious of what, when, where and why I was eating. Reviewing my Daily Action Plan entries every day revealed patterns—things I was doing that contributed to my success, and things I was doing that got in the way of it. I was able to learn from the choices I made, both good and bad.
TASTE TREATS I love the Lindora Chocolate Mint Cocoa, the Caramel Nut bars and the Wildberry drink. It's great to have snacks and beverages that not only taste great, but are great for me!
POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT I've had several friends and coworkers tell me they've been inspired to lose weight after seeing me succeed. My favorite comment was also the most diplomatic. One coworker said, 'I never thought of you as being big, but now you're this tiny little person!' It makes me smile every time I think of it!
BOTTOM LINE Thanks to Lindora, I've gone from depressed, self-conscious and self-indulgent to happy, confident and disciplined. While the scale focuses on what I've lost, I know the knowledge I've gained in doing the program will be every bit as valuable to my long-term success.
