I remember the first question I asked Diana was
“can someone my age do this program and see
results.” Diana said “absolutely.” I wasn’t so sure
about that. I was almost 59 years old – with raging
hormones and both work and life filled with stress
– I just didn’t see this happening.
I kept feeling the nudge from God. I went for it
and bought my first program. From day one I was
hooked. I was ready for this and I was willing to
make this commitment. Honestly, it is a huge
commitment, but one that is so worth it. You
have to want this, you have to want to lose the
weight and you have to want to change your
lifestyle when it comes to food and exercise. I lost
about 29 pounds on this program. I then went
through another program with Diana and lost
another 11 pounds.
Transformation isn’t easy. Friends don’t
understand why you aren’t the fun person you once
were – although they may not say those exact
words, they do say things like “Are you ever going
to drink with me anymore or “I will be glad when
this program is over so you can drink again.” Or,
quite honestly, they just stop calling.
Was that really the only fun thing about me? I am
still me, just a better, healthier version. However,
your true friends will support you and be right
there with you at all times. They may not agree
with everything you do, but they will not try to
bring you down during this time. Stick to it – it is
so worth the journey.
