Wendy’s Transformation Story: Not Feeling Old Anymore*
*Results may vary by individual
By Wendy Frisby
Four months ago, I realized that I was feeling old, achy and tired. My joints were stiff, enough so that I had trouble getting down on the floor to play with my grandkids and was unsure how easy getting back up would be.
At the same time, I realized that I probably was not eating properly, though my size did not really bother me (I thought this was just another sign of getting older). I was consistently eating on-the-go snacks, fast food, prepackaged meals and I adored sweets. At the same time, a friend of mine, Paula, told me about her new lifestyle with Fitlife.tv. I was intrigued and thought, “well, it can’t hurt to try” and I loved that Paula would be my coach!
That decision alone was the best decision I have made.
At the time, I weighed 176 pounds, wore a size 16/18 with a 39 inch waist, had poor self-esteem and wasn’t sleeping very well. I was introduced to the concept of juicing and eating whole foods. I gave up some things – dairy, soy, gluten and excess sugar – and I found that I did not miss them once I was able to re-train my taste buds.
After 2 weeks, I suddenly realized that my joints didn’t ache and I could move much easier. Then, as additional benefits, I had more energy, my mind was clearer, I was happier and I was losing weight. My mentality also changed to being more positive and I now look more willingly for activities to do with others.
I did have a few challenges along the way. I only have half a thyroid and some of the foods were causing it to not work properly. However, with the help of the Fitlife.tv team, I have learned what my body cannot tolerate and can better focus on the things that fuel my body for health and happiness.
As of today, I have lost 50 pounds, am a size 12 (going into a size 10) with a 30 inch waist, have no joint inflammation, have an improved mindset, sleep better, get complimented and feel wonderful. The two things that are most important to me I cannot leave out are my 80 oz of lemon water a day and my green juice, which I have every morning. My special green juice consists of cucumber, celery, mint, turmeric, lemon, ginger and romaine lettuce. It’s delicious and alkalizing.
This is a lifestyle that I will stick with forever and with the encouragement of everyone who is a part of Fitlife.tv, I know that my life will only get better. I want to share this wonderful new lifestyle with everyone because I firmly believe in the power of food as medicine and how important shifting our perspective is to our overall health.
Imagine no aches, more energy, a clearer mind and having a healthy and terrific body – you don’t have to feel old as you age… I am proof of that!
