My name is Griselda. I’ve been overweight my entire life - I was a big baby, chubby toddler, overweight child and obese adult. My highest weight was 310 in high school. 210 at the university level.
I finally decided to get serious in December ‘11. This time I was going to stick to it. I began researching diets and exercises and stumbled upon Jillian Michaels! I convinced my boyfriend to do the 30 Day Shred with me and we both lost about 9 lbs. I wanted more! This was the time her new program Body Revolution was about to be released. I pre-ordered it and on March 19th, our lives changed.
We went from eating fast food and fat-free foods to only whole foods. I began reading Jillian’s books, watching food documentaries, opening my eyes to the truth about the “food” we were so accustomed to eating.
It has been 85 days today (6/8/12) since we have consumed overly processed foods and we could not be happier. I’ve noticed so many changes. My energy levels are up, my hair is growing faster, my nails are strong for the first time, my body fat percentage is decreasing..
After we finish the program, I plan on continuing to eat healthfully and consciously. I want to know that my food is as closest to natural as it should be.
For this reason, I know that I will reach my goal and do not care if it takes a year to reach it.. because the time will pass anyway, right? :)
