I have always been a healthy eater. The annoyingly healthy one. Pretty much always a size 10. But when I hit menopause at 53…Boom! I could barely squeeze into a size 14.
I like clothes. I did everything. I thought I was on to something with Paleo and Wheat Belly Diet. I lost 26 lbs. quickly and then stopped losing weight. Even though I continued a modified Paleo/Wheat Belly routine.
I moved to Vancouver to be with my grandchildren. I used to have energy. My youngest grandchild is 5. I was concerned that I could not keep up with them. I still needed to loose 15-20 pounds. I knew that something I was doing wasn’t working.
Sonya knew right away that I would do well on the plan. I really liked that metabolic balance was an individual program. The first thing I noticed was that I was eating too many nuts. I like that I know I am getting the right amount of vegetables, fats, and protein.
I started MB April 29, 2015 & by the end of July I , 2015 I had dropped 25 lbs. In mid August I went back east for a reunion & was there for 2 weeks. Stayed pretty true to my program except for the wine & baked sweet potatoes All was good until just about a month before Christmas. That is when I gained the 10 lbs. I attribute the gain to the potato chips & chestnut praline lattes. What started as 1 latte every 2 weeks, soon became one a day Jan. 29, 2016 is when i committed to the program again.
After starting Metabolic Balance, the way I look at things changed. I stopped procrastinating. I see something that needs to be done I just get up and do it. It feels good. It is not just how I look, my digestion is so much better.
I have more energy. My friends talk about getting older; they talk about their aches and pains. I don’t. I don’t have any pains. They move slower than I do. When we take walks I have to wait for them to catch up.
I love fish! That is my favorite food on my plan. I like the Mandelade breakfast, chicken, and goat yogurt. And all those vegetables and fruits… I prepare and get ready for the week. I sit down at the beginning of the week and make a menu. I change it up on Sunday.
Just do it! It is simple. Make your meals pretty. Buy good pickles.
Sonya McLeod led me through a weight reduction and management using the Metabolic Balance program out of Germany. With Sonya’s guidance and coaching, I learned what a healthy weight and body measurements would be for my age, height, and activity level. The weight loss happens quickly with Metabolic Balance, and one learns the importance of portion sizes through measuring the weight of food, and the importance of having vegetables at each meal. I met with Sonya for a year to obtain the habit changes that helped me manage my weight. Sonya made sure that other factors in one’s life (travel, for instance) work with the program. I would recommend this weight management method for anybody.
