My eyes tear up whenever I think about how grateful I am that I learned this little secret…
I call it a secret because if everyone knew that we didn’t have to workout for an hour every day, or fast, or eat nothing but boring kale chips, the fitness and diet community would be out of business!
Seriously, I’m still AMAZED when I look in the mirror. Friends, family, old colleagues who haven’t seen me in awhile do a double-take when they see me. Some of them barely even recognize me!
I feel so much more confident today, my love for shopping has been reignited again (instead of feeling embarrassed or dread when shopping for new clothes). My husband and I have never been more closer and intimate than ever!
My annual trip to the doctor confirmed what I suspected. My heart was healthier than ever, and my blood sugar levels, which had been steadily creeping upward, were at healthy levels.
What really surprised me was that I didn’t have to diet, starve, or even cut out my favorite foods. (I’m a serious food lover at heart)
In fact, I learned that had absolutely nothing to do with why I had gained and kept the weight in the first place.
It had nothing to do with how much rigorous exercising I did… or how much sugar I ate..
No wonder I STRUGGLED for years to get my weight under control! The fitness industry was feeding me this line to keep me struggling in an endless cycle.
