Meet Patty! Fat loss success with Accountability
In Patty’s words:
“I gained about 20 lbs after going through early menopause. I have a small body frame, 4’11”, and to go from a size 0 to an 8-10, was just too much for me to handle. I used to exercise in my 20s and 30s and after having kids later in life, I was busy being a mom, but I still got back into shape.
However, menopause slowed everything for me and my body changed tremendously. I started having major aches and pains everywhere as well, along with horrible back aches. My cholesterol and BMI skyrocketed. My doctor told me that I have to lose weight and bring my BMI to normal range.
Whatever I did, I couldn’t lose the weight and was convinced that I’m doomed for the rest of my life and that I have to learn to live with all the changes. I couldn’t stand looking at myself in the mirror and kept telling myself that someday I will lose the weight.
I spent a lot of money hiring personal trainers and working out, but still wasn’t getting the results I needed. I found NJ through one of my personal trainers a year ago and signed up for the 7 Day Jump Start. I saw results immediately, but I just wasn’t committed 100% to eating “clean” or “unprocessed” foods.
In January, I DECIDED to jump back in the challenge, where I kept up with my diet and exercise. What helped me the most was the accountability, following a very simple plan and eating very good food! I realized that in order to be successful, I had to stick to a “new lifestyle”.
I started to prep my meals in advance and taking it with me to work, which stopped the binge eating. I increased my water intake as well. The whole thing was finding out my “WHY”: Why I wanted to change my life, but I needed the “HOW” and “WHAT”. Natalie Jill showed me HOW to follow her plan, WHAT to eat and HOW to unprocess my diet. Also, how to stick to eating amazing food. I bought her book when it first launched and have stuck to the great recipes.
I have learned to make conscious decisions about what I eat. As a mom of two young girls, I have to be a good role model. They see and observe everything I do. Their eyes are on me with every bite. I realize that I still have a long way to go, but the key is consistency, determination, desire to look and feel better, and discipline to stay on track.
This is a process, and not an overnight thing. It takes hard work and dedication. It takes time to see results and that’s the absolute hardest part.
Natalie’s simplified ways to eat, helped me along the way. She made my life easier. She made me realize that I need to enjoy the process and love myself. I still follow her today. She will remain my mentor forever! I am her # 1 fan. She has been my inspiration, my role model. I couldn’t do any of this without her.”
