On August of 2007 I looked at myself in a photograph I took at my son's 10th birthday and I saw how fat I was. That moment was a wake up call for me to do something about my weight and appearance. I wondered what my husband saw in me and what my kids thought of their mother.
I heard the commercial for Quick Weight Loss Center on the radio and called the center that same day to make the appointment. On September 25, 2007, I went in for my consultation and began the program. At that time, I weighed 171.8 pounds. This date was the beginning of a brand new me.
I admit I was skeptical at first, but as the weeks went by and I saw the results I became a true believer of the program. I did not tell anyone that I had joined the Quick Weight loss Center, including my family. My family and friends began to notice my weight loss and they began to ask questions. I explained to them what the program was about. How Quick Weight Loss Center teaches you about portion control, measuring foods, what foods harm your body, eating properly and the best thing is that each client has their own personal nutritionist to take care of them on a one on one basis. You have questions, and they have answers.
Before joining Quick Weight loss Center my salads consisted of lettuce and dressing only. Now I eat all types of vegetables, fruits and drink plenty of water. I exercise at the gym 4 times per week. I have high blood pressure and asthma, and having a family history and a weight problem I was afraid that I would not be able to see my children grow up. I wanted to show my family that I had the willpower to take control and improve my life and my appearance. My decision to lose weight was not only about my appearance, but how much less I loved myself and how I was running out of clothes to wear. Most importantly, how could I control my son's weight problem if I could not even control mine?
My goal was to lose 41 pounds in 14 weeks. I lost 42 pounds* and I gained self-confidence and self-love. I went from a size 12 to a 5*. I am now at 127 pounds* and I feel healthy and look great. My husband told me that the new me was the best gift I could have ever given him. I love the way he looks at me now and how he and my children are so proud of me. I am now able to wear my daughter's clothes and even her friends think I'm "hot". I am the nutritionist in the family now and because of my motivation, knowledge and success with Quick Weight loss Center, everyone in my family is living a healthier life.
