viewed this fat kid trying to do what they did. Let’s be honest, going to gym for someone like me was very scary. A lot of the time people say don’t be because they don’t think that way. A majority of the time, those people probably haven’t been where I was. At the weight of 250 pounds, it was even hard to run a mile, let alone do a pull-up. I looked like a worm on a hook when doing a pull-up, a fat worm. I had no confidence.
This is embarrassing, but throughout my whole life I never had a SERIOUS girlfriend. I always knew why but never wanted to face the fact, I was too scared to admit what my problem was.
Then at the age of 23, the worm turned for me and I wanted to do whatever it took. So I went on to do a cleanse to reset my body. During this process, I was able to lose 65 lbs in 6 months! But what I had to do was out there. I had to run 4 miles a day on an incline, 2 in the morning and 2 at night. Then I would have to make sure I drank 2 shakes a day and one bar with a regular meal for lunch. I was on a VERY strict diet to lose roughly 10-15 pounds. That process changed my life.
But someone can only keep that up for so long. As time progressed, I didn’t run as much, and I ate a little worst. If anyone knows me, I’m about the food. I really like to eat. The biggest problem I ran into was that I was living an unsustainable lifestyle for myself. I know some people could do it, but it was not the average person’s way out. I eventually gained some weight back for a year which wasn’t too bad, I went back up to 217 pounds.
Then what happened as I was building my business, Mark Wilson, President and Founder of ARIIX, told me about this “Secret Sauce,” later to be known as the Slenderiix product. I trusted Mark, so when I got on the phone with Deanna Latson, Chief Product Officer and Founder, I was ready to go and take massive notes. Then, as soon as I heard her explain the program, I couldn’t write a single thing because it was so hard to believe. I ran my butt of literally to lose the weight and Deanna told me that I could lose 1-2 lbs a day without working out, eating properly, and putting these drops below your tongue. I just couldn’t believe it. But I did say “What do I have lose except a couple pounds.”
I trusted Deanna and Mark, so I took it on full bore, no cheating, and was VERY strict with what I ate. In the process I was able to lose 67 lbs in 60 days. I just couldn’t believe as the fat just came off, I had no idea where it was going! This program has changed my life forever. Me being at 150 allowed me to explore working out and building up muscle mass. It has allowed me to wear a size small t-shirt and 28 waist pair of pants. What’s the really amazing thing is that people don’t believe that is me in the Driver’s License, not because of how fat I used to be, but also how young I used to be. I weight less today than I did 10 years ago at 16. At 16 I was 200 and today I’m 150. I just couldn’t believe also that I didn’t look scrawny. My back and my arms still had muscle. I always knew there was muscle there lying dormant. Ha ha. I can also now do multiple pull-ups and many different exercises. It’s to the point where I’m able to confidently take up multiple workout programs! It’s given me a world of difference in terms of confidence!
