I am a 47 year old woman. I am 5"8" and about 196 lbs. Up until I was about 25 years old I could not gain a pound if I tried. I weighed 135 pounds. I had a baby and gained a little weight but not much. When I hit 160 pounds I thought there was something wrong and went to the doctor. I had a thick neck and I was absolutely exhausted all the time. Skin was dry, hair was falling out and I was cold all the time. I was about 30. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Once I started medication I lost about 15 pounds. In my 30's the weight just kept creeping up even though I was very active and exercised regularly. My highest weight was 206 lbs...it was very difficult for me as I never had to really worry about my weight. My thyroid levels were all over the place for awhile. I got into protein shakes and eatling light. Giving up pop and junk food. I never go out to eat for lunch unless I have to take a business meeting (which I avoid as much as possible). When I did go out to eat I was very careful not to get added fat and calories in my order. Light soups, salads etc... Still not much of a budge in my weight. On top of it all my feet starting hurting like nobody's business best thing the doctor could diagnose is plantar's fasciitis but he was not so sure. I sought two other doctors who said the same thing. I believe it is the weight my foot problems make it so difficult to stand for periods of time. Walking is not a problem until I stop walking. But I do love to walk so I continue to do it.
My husband bought me the NutriBullet last week. He thought it would be great for me with my protein shakes. I don't watch TV much so did not know there was an infomercial on this product. I had no idea there was a healthy eating/drinking plan with this. I don't think I got the 6 week transformation guide that you all are talking about. I have gone through the literature and read lots of reviews, forums, articles and success stories regarding the nutriblasts. I had my first nutriblast yesterday 3/27/14. It was the Skinny Blast....not bad I may have went overboard on the spinach. I tried the Fat Burning Boost this morning. Can't say I cared for it much....again I may have went overboard on the spinach (it was suppose to be kale but I did not want to invest a ton of money right away). I am a picky eater but I did finish both nutriblasts completely so they were not awful. They are quite filling I am sitting at my desk right now drinking lemon water and do not feel like eating at all pretty content. I will be honest that my biggest concern is flatulence...yup I said it! Many veggies and fruit cause that for me....but I keep eating them in small bursts to ensure I am getting my nutrients. That is why I am a bit hesitant to go full force into a 7 day cleanse....at my job I cannot afford to be making lots of trips to the bathroom.....It happens I have not seen that addressed much in my readings through this site.
I am very impressed with the results others are seeing and am very glad that many have been able to be successful on their journeys. I am hoping this may help me boost my metabolism and feel good. I am typically a happy person but the only thing bothering me right now is my stubborn weight...my belly seems to be the worst and am hoping to decrease its size.
Well thanks for reading and I am looking forward to trying more recipes and tweeking some to suit my taste. Have a great day and good luck on your goals whatever they are!
