My name is Shawna and I am mother to 2 beautiful girls and wife to my amazing, brilliant and supportive husband who has also joined me along this journey.
Speaking of my journey, it started 9 weeks and 6 days ago when I went to the doctor after about 3 years. The last time that I was weighed, was 6 weeks after my last baby was born. I have always waived the "privilege" to get on the scale. This time, they wouldn't hear of it and insisted that I get on it. At first, I hid my eyes and said that I preferred not to know what the numbers said but my curiosity got the best of me and I was shocked, to say the least! I was 32 lbs heavier then when I conceived my beautiful, almost 3 year old baby! I just couldn't believe that I had allowed myself and my life to get so out of control! I decided right then and there the life that I had known for so long was coming to an end!
After my horrendous experience with that scale, I came home and just to torture myself further, got on my scale at home! I just had to make sure that scale had been accurate...it was! Horrified, I decided to look at The Belly Fat Cure diet. My mother and sister had both had success with it and I felt confident that I could also have the same, or better results. I had no idea what I was getting myself into and at that point, I was so desperate that I just didn't care, I had to do something and now! I have to say, I was amazed at how easily I was able to conform my life to fit with this "diet". The first week that I was on it, I didn't even have the book. I went on advice and guidelines that my mom and sister had given me and guess what? It worked! I lost 12.3 lbs in the first week! My husband decided to join me in my quest for a healthy life and we decided at that point, that we needed to invest in the books and get serious about this plan. It has been the best thing that we could have done as a couple. It has brought us closer and we feel much more supported by each other in life.
I no longer call this a "diet". It has become our way of life. Now, 9 weeks and 4 days into the change, I am down 28.7 lbs and my husband has almost reached his goal weight with a total of 35+ lbs lost! We are continually searching for new and better ways to make our life richer and healthier and we have BFC to thank for getting us on to the right path.
We are looking ahead to a long and healthy life for us and for our children
