Weight Loss Transformation of the Day: Roberta lost 117 pounds. This proud mom of 5 lost the weight using the popular 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse program. She also learned to use portion control and when she wanted to indulge. Here is what she shared with us about her journey.
My name is Roberta G. and I’m a mother of four boys and a baby girl. March 17, 2015. I started the JJ Smith “10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse“. I completed 14 days for my first cleanse, and even though I had a few slip ups, I still lost an amazing 22 lbs. That changed my life forever. Since March 17th, I’ve been following the modified version and I’ve lost a total of 82 lbs, for a grand total of 117 lbs since I began my journey last year (I am 5 ft 6 in tall.) Knowing that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, gives me the strength to be successful at all things, including overcoming this weight obstacle.
I changed my eating habits by adding more fruits and vegetables in the form of smoothies to my diet. I also added nuts and other healthy options at meal time and for snacks. For me, I don’t believe that you should stop eating things, but I do believe in portion control. I also believe in eating things you want, but in moderation. If there is something I want to eat, I indulge myself and I eat it. It’s about balance for me and I deserve to treat myself for the healthy changes I made to my lifestyle. I have five children, so I do lots of running around. However, I have not added a specific workout routine to my lifestyle yet, but it is coming soon.
After having my children, I was determined to win this battle of the bulge, and even with a few slip ups, when you’re dedicated nothing can stop you from getting to where you’re trying to be. Prayer, combined with determination and dedication, equals success!!! I thank God for JJ Smith and the knowledge He gave her! I also thank her for creating and sharing her knowledge with us! She was and is still truly a God sent blessing in my life, and because of her, my life will never be the same! I will always be thankful and eternally grateful.
