After having Bariatric Surgery to be fitted with a gastric band and still not losing any weight I had given up.
I had tried everything I thought and nothing helped, I spent thousands to have the Gastric band as I was desperate to lose weight and thought Gastric band surgery was a sure thing, it wasn't. After 4 years with it and no weight loss I had given up on life as I had no quality of life at 5′3 and a little over 300 pounds.
My blood pressure was out of control although I was on 4 BP medications, I had high cholesterol, suffered from depression and constant headaches, my back, knees, and hips hurt constantly. I didn't want to go anywhere or do anything, life was passing me by.
Then I heard about someone who had lost 100lbs with the Herbalife diet. I didn't know what it was but that same day I found out and ordered the products. The very first day on the products I just felt better, for starters I didn't fall asleep that afternoon. I used to fall asleep every afternoon and I haven't done that since starting Herbalife. I didn't feel hungry and what I just couldn't believe was the cravings went away. I was a junk food aholic and I no longer crave junk food!
I lost about 80 pounds in 10 months and never felt deprived or like I was on a diet. I've gone from a size 28/26 to an 18/16. Even when it seems I haven't lost weight my body is still shrinking!
My cholesterol is normal and I no longer take meds for it, I am down to 1 BP medication from 4 and my BP is consistent at 110/80, headaches are rare and joint pain has all but disappeared ! I feel like living again! My body has never been so well nourished and the best part is it has been so easy!
I take my vitamins and drink nutritional shakes and I have a lovely meal every day and snacks in between and I've lost weight consistently! The Lapband does not take away the cravings and that is a huge part of the battle, Herbalife does!
Anyone considering surgery or waiting to have surgery, I would urge you to try Herbalife before going under the knife and spending thousands because it is not a guarantee and I know I am not the only person it hasn't worked for as I met a lovely lady last week who also had the Gastric band with no results and was now losing weight with Herbalife !
I use the ShapeWorks QuickStart and I also take Thermo Complete and drink the Thermojetic Herbal Beverage.
I still have weight to lose, I am a work in progress but "progress" is the key word! I am making great progress and I have my life back
