A Renewed Lifestyle Leads to Weight Loss

A Renewed Lifestyle Leads to Weight Loss

I am 28 years old and, about a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I had been feeling the symptoms for years and it took just as long to come up with a diagnosis. Then, about 9 months ago, I was diagnosed with Systemic Lupus, yet another thing to add to my list of what seemed to be growing problems.

I could not understand how I could have so many problems at a relatively young age. I didn't really know what to do or where to turn. I began to research things that I could do on my own to help improve my health. I had read a lot about eating an anti-inflammatory diet, which was even suggested by my rheumatologist, but of course my quest to improve things did not last very long. It was only a matter of time before I was back to my old eating habits. I had the notion that if I just exercised a little more, things would be ok. Oh, and all the while I have been struggling with my weight and have desperately wanted to shed some pounds. But I suppose I was not desperate enough, because again, I did not stick to my exercise routine or healthy eating.

Around September 2013, an aunt of mine began to tell me about her NutriBullet and how much she loved it. She told of the results she was seeing in her weight loss efforts and all from just incorporating the NutriBullet into her daily routine. After our conversation, I was convinced that I had to purchase a NutriBullet of my own. At the time, my main motivation for wanting a NutriBullet was to lose the weight I had been struggling with. I did not expect the machine would be good for much else beside aiding in weight loss.

In October 2013, my wonderful husband surprised me with the NutriBullet for my birthday. I was so excited to begin using my very own NutriBullet - I just knew that things would get better. Unfortunately, I wasn't using my NutriBullet as frequently as I had originally planned, but enjoyed the Blasts when I did use it. As the New Year rolled around, I realized that I had let myself get to a point where I was not happy with my weight and was not happy with myself. I felt some improvement in health, but only as a result of the medications that I was placed on. And, lets face it, who wants to take medications for the rest of their life!

So, here I was, feeling depressed, unmotivated and at a loss about what to do. After seeking support from a friend, she reminded me of a time when we had done a detox for a few days to jump-start healthy habits for ourselves. My friend suggested I again try a detox of some sort to get me “jump-started” all over again. It was at this time that my husband and I watched a documentary about juicing, which helped to motivate me even more in beginning a detox/cleanse/fast of some sort. We had planned on using our NutriBullet (which was beginning to feel neglected because we had not been using it for a while) and figured our cleanse would be even better than what we saw in the documentary because we would not be losing any of our foods nutrients like you would with regular juicing.

As my husband and I planned how we would complete our ten day “smoothie” cleanse, I stumbled upon the NutriLiving website. As I perused the site, I came across the 2014 NutriBlast Cleanse. I was so excited to find this and smiled to myself at the perfect timing in coming across this cleanse. My husband (who does not need to lose weight, but has been wanting to eat healthier) and I decided that we would still stick with our original plan of cleansing/fasting for ten days; however we would follow the NutriBlast cleanse for ten days instead of the original five days.

Ten days later, I am amazed at the changes that have taken place! As a result of my medical conditions, I am ALWAYS tired, ALWAYS in pain and can NEVER have a restful night's sleep. As I reflect on the last 10 days, I realized my pain has decreased, I am not as tired and have more energy during the day. More importantly, I don’t feel as sluggish during the day, I am able to get a better night's rest more often than not, my skin has been clearing up and is not as oily as it once was. And to my surprise, the tooth pain that I have had for the past 9 months (which I was told needs a root canal) does not hurt as much anymore. And, even better, I lost 11 pounds!!!

I could not have done this, first of all without the strength that God helped provide me with to stick with the cleanse for 10 days; second without the support and encouragement of my husband; and third, had it not been for the NutriBullet, the NutriLiving website and the 2014 NutriBlast Cleanse, I would not be feeling as great as I do and I would not have the drive and motivation to continue my newly discovered clean eating life style. Just one day off the cleanse and not following my NutriBlast routine and I have felt the difference in how my body feels and I am determined more than ever to maintain this new healthy lifestyle.

Thank you, NutriBullet for creating such an amazing product!! It has changed my life in so many ways! And it is changing the lives of others. Many of my coworkers plan on starting the 2014 NutriBullet cleanse to jump-start their new healthy lifestyle and we have all pitched in to purchase a NutriBullet for our office to help continue the success that many of us have found!!!

I also have fibro, along with neck & back issues from a car accident 4 years ago. I just purchased a nutribullet & the 1st drink I made was so horrible, I couldn't barely get 1/4 of it down. The one today was a little better. I'm glad you are doing better & I hope to as well. What blasts are your favorite?

I am so happy to hear your story and even happier to know that your getting better! I am also going through the same things and list of other stuff. It's frustrating to go through such things and to here your story is finally some hope that I too can better my life. No one ever really understands until they them selves go through the same. Thank you again ; )

Wondering how you have done in the interim and if using the nutribullet has been helpful. Also wondering why why you couldn't have fruit in your diet since it's a natural sugar. I also have fibro I am going to start using the nutribullet as soon as I've been to the grocery

I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia, 20 years ago. Everything you. Have described I've been trying to explain to family, friends ect. Sometimes I felt like I would lose my mind, like " is this all in my head" kinda stuff. I really felt alone, like a useless piece of crap. Like I said I've been going thru this for 20 years, the emotional rollercoaster of this disease had me considering suicide as well. I just couldn't take the pain anymore. About 3 weeks ago I saw a nutritionist and she put me on a strict no sugar/carb diet can't even have fruit for now, within the first couple of days I felt a difference in my energylevel and my sensitivity to touch had decreased as well. So as a result of this diet I started feeling better than I had in years but a person can only eat a vegetable so many ways. I saw the nutri bullet on TV and thought, " I can have something other than eggs for breakfast in the A.M. and just seeing the "blasts" that were made on the program got me so excited I didn't waste any time ordering one. Well I just received it today and got it out and made a drink and gagged, well I have noidea what mixes well together so I need to contain my excitement and learn how to do this right. Thanks forthe story it helps to know that there's someone out there that can identify with exactly how I feel. Good luck to us, and all of you who are a fortunate as I to have found this product.
