Secrets of Success

Don'T Give Up!



I lost over 30 lbs in about a year, and my biggest revelation was that you CAN change your body drastically if you really want to. It's not just an infomercial gimmick! LOL
So my advice is DON'T BE DISCOURAGED if you don't get instant results ... and before you know it, you'll be noticing little things (jeans are too big, you don't get winded as quickly) that will re-inspire you and keep you going!

  • thanks for reminding me. I lost 70 pounds from may 2012 to jan 2013. broke my foot, and became depressed and sedentary waiting for it to heal, and regained 20 pounds.
    i am back to walking again and practicing healthier food choices.
