My name is Roger Lee and I am a 31-year-old proud husband and father of two precious babies. I say babies because my Daddy's Girl is about to be 2 in November and my Handsome Boy will be 1 in late October. I want to mention them because they are the total motivation for changing my life!
Before my NutriBullet came, I weighed in at 305 pounds. I was always sick with high blood pressure, sleep apnea and a family history of heart disease and diabetes. It was clear I was headed down a difficult path for me and my family. When my daughter was born, I decided to get life insurance and was upset that my premium was so high because of my weight problem. Then, 2 months later, we found out we had another on the way and that was the start of my journey. I knew I had to be in their lives as much as possible and I did not want them to see me the way I saw myself.
I tried juicing, but was always starving. I joined a gym, but was always too tired and self-conscious to go. I couldn't afford those expensive meal plans and was really feeling like I had no more options.
I stayed up late one night and saw the NutriBullet commercial. I was skeptical at first and began researching the product online and looked for testimonials on Youtube. I like the fact that nothing edible is wasted like with my juicer and I could see less money going in the trash. I had a little money in the bank and, after talking it over with my wife, we decided to purchase it online and give it a try. I received my NutriBullet late September and immediately began NutriBlasting. I tried many different recipes, drinking my meals once a day. I noticed that it was a great meal replacement that satisfied my hunger, but I was still eating what I wanted for my other meals. Then the holidays came and the NutriBullet got tucked away for a while. When New Year's resolutions came around, I made the same one I had been making for years: lose weight and look good shirtless for the summer.
I started my journey on January 14, 2013. I decided early on that I was going to find a recipe I could drink for 3 meals a day Monday through Friday with a snack between each NutriBlast, while rewarding myself with healthy meals on the weekends. After a couple weeks of experimenting, I finally created a drink full of super foods that tasted great and that I could drink everyday. After that, the fat just melted off, my metabolism increased and I had energy I didn't know what to do with. So I finally put the gym membership to good use!
I started joining cycling classes and testing my endurance. I was achieving goal after goal and my whole attitude changed. People at work were really interested in what I was doing. I would conduct safety meetings and see people there that I hadn't seen in weeks and their jaws would just drop.
I realize now that nobody is perfect, but the body has the power to change if the mind can will it. My mind willed it all the way from 305 pounds to 205 pounds and I'm not finished yet. My new goal is to reach 175 pounds before I begin to pack on the muscle and get the strong chiseled look everybody deserves. I hope you can join me on my incredible journey because it's not over yet and I guarantee the NutriBullet will be with me every step of the way. The goals will keep on coming because I can do anything! I believe that now.
