Most Mindful Tip: Give yourself permission to take care of you
That is the best way to describe how I felt before discovering GreenLite.
I would think to myself daily, “Get used to it, this is your life now: overweight and just plain unhealthy.”
Tired, just plain tired.
I had seen my doctor for chronic migraines (about two months before partnering with GreenLite), where she had prescribed a daily migraine medication.
The routine blood work she ordered showed a fatty liver. I told her that I was really concerned about that news.
Her response: “If you are concerned, I suggest you lose weight.”
Wow, that hurt, ouch.
She continued to tell me that losing weight was just a simple math equation. Eat 250 less calories per day, and burn 250 more calories per day through exercise.
OH really, is that all?!? Needless to say, I was discouraged and sad.
I will skip ahead at this point and say that by the end of November, less than two months with GreenLite, I was completely weaned off the migraine meds and have been migraine-free ever since.
What an eye opener. I truly feel that this has been my biggest victory. Being pain free, I believe, is what has helped me conquer the weight and WANT to be an active participant in my own life.
Okay, back to the beginning:
I would hear the commercials for GreenLite and wonder what it was all about or if it really worked. Would this just be another failed attempt? All those negative little memes taking up space in my brain, stopping me from going after what I really wanted – to be healthy and feel good.
It took me several weeks just get up the courage to call. And when I did, I was so pleasantly surprised. There was absolutely no pressure to join or commit. Katherine was more than willing to answer all my questions and share with me the details of the plan.
Again, after much deliberation – about a week – I made an appointment for October 7, 2013. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am that I made that call and kept that appointment.
Dr. Rugh is wonderful. She really opened my eyes to the “how” and “why” of body chemistry. She exudes a true caring nature, genuinely interested in your story, with absolutely no judgment. Oh, how refreshing! And by the way, Dr. Rugh pointed out – it is NOT a matter of a “simple math equation” for losing weight. Thank you!!!
Holly, oh Holly – she was my rock with a smile and a hug! She was always happy to share the wonderful knowledge in her beautiful brain. She really gets it! And I could not imagine having a better person on “My Team!”
I cannot forget to mention Amanda, that first happy smiling face I would see before each appointment. Anything I needed, Amanda was always happy to assist. She is truly fabulous!
There is a comforting sense when you feel all these wonderful people truly want you to succeed. My success was their success – teamwork at its best!
I have lost 52 pounds in less than six months,* and will definitely reach my goal!!! I have absolutely no doubt about it. What I’ve learned and the tools I now have will stay with me always. It just makes sense. I have my proof that this is not a “trend diet” and instead is a lifestyle that really works! No more migraines, no afternoon crashing, tons of energy and weight loss too – I cannot argue with the results.
As for what lies ahead, I’m not sure, but I sure am excited to find out! I feel like I’m awake for the first time in years! I am enjoying being active and trying new things, like strapping on a pair of ice skates and playing a little ice hockey with my kids, something I would have never considered before partnering with GreenLite.
If I can offer one piece of advice here, it would be to give yourself permission to take care of you! Be selfish when it comes to your wellbeing – YOU are worth it and you will succeed!
