Feature Story – Jenni’s Success Story

jennibeforeandafter5

Jenni May 2013 to September 2013

I have always been unhappy with the number on the scale. Always.

I can honestly remember being 11 and being disappointed with myself. Also, I can not recall a time where I didn’t eat emotionally. Good days were celebrated with high calorie yummies. Bad days were capped off with a greasy bowl of ‘feelings’.

I would go through healthy phases where I would hit the gym regularly and eat cleaner, only to see the scale move down and immediately reward myself with a junk food binge. Just once is usually all it took to derail myself and I would soon find me back to where I started. I graduated college with about 20 extra pounds, I met my husband and 5 years, 3 beautiful babies and 50 extra pounds later, I hated myself for getting this overweight. Cap that with a husband who worked out of town and keeping 3 children alive I was emotionally and physically beat. Eating feelings became a daily event.

Last January I was desperate. I bought a treadmill on sale and vowed that I would get my act together. My days were so long that exercising after the kids were in bed was not an option. Instead, I would set my kids up with a movie and toys but I still couldn’t get more than 10 minutes in without one of them needing my attention. This of course stressed me out causing the consumption of more feelings.

I had met Kelly and Marriann thru social media and thought highly of them both. They seemed like such happy and positive women that always had something wonderful to share. One day I clicked on Kelly’s profile link and found the Goodbye My Muffintop Inc. website.

I had heard of hCG before and honestly, at the time all I cared about is the part where you release weight fast. When I sat down with Kelly, she talked about how herself and others were able to free themselves from the cycle of emotional eating and dieting. This was the first time I realized how bad my emotional eating was.

Because I was still nursing my baby, I had to wait a couple months to start protocol. I paid attention to what and when I ate and couldn’t believe how often I ate out of habit/emotion and not hunger.

In May of 2013 I started my first round of protocol. I knew it would be rough. I had 2 of my kid’s birthdays as well as a huge long distance move to power thru while I was on protocol, meaning that I would not be able to have any birthday cake or reach for that bag of chips to calm my nerves.

Even though I was told what to expect I was absolutely floored to see I’d released 13 pounds in the first week of protocol. At the end of the first round I was down 30lbs and I’d successfully relocated to another town without even eating one crumb of feelings. To me, that gave me just as much satisfaction as the weight I had released.

During my second round, I found I had so much extra energy I had to do something to burn it off. My husband suggested I go for a run. I laughed at him. I used to have “only running while being chased” policy, but to my surprise, I loved it, and I have now adopted running as a hobby.

My other surprise this round was celebrating my 30th birthday without food, and not being remotely sad about it. I really didn’t miss it. Instead I took a garbage bag of clothing that were too big for me to goodwill and bought myself my very first pair of skinny jeans. And honestly, the way that made me feel beat the way a big chunk of cake would of made me feel.

That feeling is the reason I wanted to become a release coach. I feel so strongly about this program and I think everybody has the right to feel this way about themselves. I’m really looking forward to walking beautiful people through this journey of releasing pounds and the discovery of self love that comes with it.

My journey isn’t over yet but after 2 rounds of protocol, I have released 50 lbs and 60 inches (including 10 inches around my abdomen!!) but more importantly gained a huge amount of confidence and self love and I no longer see physical activity and clean eating as a punishment for letting myself get fat, instead I truly enjoy it and I see it as a reward.

I’ve never been so happy to be me and CANNOT wait to share more of this journey with others!

Guest Post – Scale Liberation

This is an amazing story of one of our clients. I just have to share.

Release Revolution

The following is a submission I received upon request from a Goodbye My Muffintop Client – she has asked to remain anonymous but I am sure that many, many of you will relate to her story.  She is such a perfect example of why a person could benefit from the hormonal re-set that our program provides!  She didn’t need to eat better or exercise better… she wasn’t doing anything wrong.  She just needed to learn how to listen to her body…   To date her pounds lost remain an unknown… but after her first round of protocol she lost an incredible 44.5 inches!

My body image issues date back literally as far back as I can remember.  Even around the age of 4 years old I have memories of being called the “chubby chicken” & compared to my “skinny minny” sister by my mother.  Now if you want some deep seeded…

Feature Story – Gym Rat Chronicles

Stacey and I started our weight release experience about the same time last January.  We supported, encouraged and inspired one another.  We were both in awe each week at our own results.  Stacey’s journey has been a very inspiring one, for many reasons.  She offered to share her experience using the Vibrational hCG with us.  While her before and after photos may not have the “shock” value you are expecting, her story may sound familiar!  Take a peek at the before and after views and read her story below. ~ Marriann

“I have always been extremely active with running, other cardio, weight lifting and some classes such as yoga and kettlebells. I always kept my weight down without too many problems. That is, until my body went sideways! Despite the strict eating habits and workouts, my weight started climbing. I worked with 5 different trainers and 3 different doctors and no one could figure out why the pounds were packing on. It was so frustrating! I kept thinking if I worked out a little harder, ate a little better, I would get some weight off. It never happened. In fact, the harder I pushed, the fatter I got! I finally had enough and made a decision to stop working out all together and stop dieting. To my shock and awe, the weight gain stopped! I never gained another pound. Why was I killing myself in the gym and being so strict with my eating? I was introduced to this amazing program, and decided to give it a go since NOTHING else had been working for me. Again, shock and awe! I did a 40 day run, shedding 19 pounds and 25 inches! Once I started adding foods back in, I quickly realized cottage cheese caused me to gain, and guess what all the trainers had me eating in abundance? When it came time to add in the carbs, I knew right away I could no longer eat oatmeal. Another food I had been eating constantly. Now I avoid them altogether. It was a great learning experience. I know I would have never figured that out otherwise. It is now a year and a bit down the road and I have maintained, other than the initial gains from the oatmeal and cottage cheese. I haven’t gone back to a vigorous workout routine, as I believe I was putting my body under too much stress, both physically and mentally, releasing stress hormones into my system that contributed greatly to my weight gain. I eat healthfully, most of the time, but don’t deprive myself. This is one program,where if protocol is followed, the weight will stay off!” ~ Stacey Guynup

Thanks Stacey for sharing with our readers!  You are an inspiration and my hope is that your story will help set even just one more person FREE!

One year later, Stacey continues with her interests in health, wellness and inspiring others.  She was introduced to the company Vemma and says “it has truly changed my life! My chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and migraines are so much better!  I am fully living life and loving it!”  Check out her business website at www.staceyguynup.vemma.com.

Thanks again for sharing Stacey!!
