Read her success story! Before and after fitness success motivation from women who hit their weight loss goals and got THAT BODY with training and meal prep. Learn their workout tips get inspiration! | TheWeighWeWere.comI started ACE February 26, 2012. My starting weight was 459 pounds. Before ACE I consumed at least 3000 calories a day between pop, drinks, food and snacks. I was a horrible snacker! The only time that I would drink water was when I was sick with a cold or flu. I drank AT LEAST 2 liters of Coke a day!
When I started ACE, I had no faith that it would work, I figured that it was another “diet” pill that someone wanted me to try because I was obese. So I tried it.
The FIRST day I took ACE I didn’t drink pop! I wanted water! I have not had pop since 2/26/12! That was HUGE for me! Then by day 3 my feet were smaller! I put on my shoes and they were big on me.
I used to carry A LOT of water weight in my legs. So I knew that the ACE was at least getting the water weight off. Then day 10, I had to go to a health assessment for our insurance. They like to weigh, measure, poke you etc. I stepped on the scale knowing that I was 459, 10 days ago. I stepped on, and then stepped off. Then I told the nurse to do it again because I couldn’t believe my eyes….stepped on again….442 POUNDS!! I LOST 17 POUNDS IN 10 DAYS!!!!!
And then it went from there. In the first month I lost almost 40 pounds, then 50, then 77 pounds in month 4 and then I hit 100 pounds gone in month 7!!!!
I went from a person that sat at home, ashamed to go in public and neglecting the memories that I could be making with my family….to someone that LOVES to go out in public!! I love the positive reactions that I get from the people in my community now!! I am not known as the obese girl I am now known as the ‘ACE’ girl!!!
My life is SO much better now! I am happy, my marriage is better because I am not depressed all the time, I am able to keep up with my son and my friendships are better too!!!
And now….the question I get asked everyday! What did I do to lose the weight?
This is what I do EVERYDAY!
When I wake up I take 2 ACE with 8 ounces of water. Then about 15-20 minutes later I eat breakfast. Breakfast consists of a ToppFast shake with 1% milk, and a 90 calorie Special K bar. Then WATER until lunch. For lunch I eat salads, lean pockets, turkey or ham sandwiches with 12 grain bread, some fruit, low calories crackers, stuff like that and 1% milk. Then between 1-3 pm I take one more ACE with 8 oz of water. Then dinner time. I eat a lot of white meats; chicken, turkey, fish. I have a veggie and usually pasta or another side. My portions are HALF of what I used to eat! And 1% milk. Then more water until bed time. I consume AT LEAST 100 ounces of water a day. I do drink coffee in the morning but I use Splenda instead of sugar. I drink Ice Tea too but I use Splenda in that too. I DO NOT take ACE on Sunday! That is my day off, I do not over eat on those days, but I do not have a lot of energy.
