Nancy’s Victory

Posted by:

Dr. Brettany Hummert’s SHAPE WARRIOR

Hello!  I am a 67 yr. old woman who has always had weight issues.  This past Thanksgiving a relative whom I only see a few times a year had changed so much – I couldn’t wait to ask HOW?!  She told me all about the program and the best thing I liked was the doctor’s weekly supervision. It was just time to change things and not start down the slippery slope of ” Yes, I am 67 and had better be retiring and accepting my limitations”.

In December 2017, at 245#, I made the call.  I decided I wanted to try it for a whole year, to experience all the seasons and holidays.  It has sometimes been sad to forego the ” special cookies and foods that mark a holiday” but I was amazed at how much FOOD had controlled how I saw things and that the attachment WOULD pass, and I DID survive!

I have eaten healthy for over 40 years but just kept adding the pounds.

I was happy that heavy exercise was not encouraged but I was able to keep up my Pilates.

The drops made sense – working to balance the endocrine and hormonal systems.

The idea of preparing most of your own foods (though I fought it at first) seemed so right and actually healing in itself.  Yes, you can still find food at most restaurants to fit the plan.

For too many years I have been resistant to being MORE mindful about my eating until I realized that I was not only helping myself but my family, my job and using my God-given talents for many more years – I DO care about being there for them.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  It’s so nice to find something that works! Oh!—— a couple months under the one year mark, and I have lost 65# and 50 inches (gradually and steadily).
