Body Lovin’ Work in Progress

bravegirlclub

There is no question, this protocol is an effective way to release weight.  I have seen success hundreds of times now.  Some people easily maintain their new weight and move on with their body-loving-life participating in self-lovin’ daily fitness & continuing to nourish their bodies with good wholesome foods.  However, some people don’t sail away so smoothly.  Beautiful you will have to keep doing protocols and releasing the same 15-20 lbs UNLESS you deal with your demons, triggers, whatever you want to call those silly things that convince you to eat food, without the feeling of hunger.  Whatever “program” you choose to do, you will have to continue doing it to maintain your weight, unless you put a STOP to your dieting mentality.  If you are sick of dieting, you first have to consciously recognize that it is socially acceptable to diet.  Most everyone around you is dieting.  Only YOU can stop it, by firstly changing your mentality around it.
These silly little dieting “things” can be so different for each individual person.  Sometimes it is a body image issue, a self-love issue, an emotional issue…whatever the case may be.  You need to pin-point it.  Stare it in the face and tell “IT” you aren’t playing this game anymore.  Yo-yo-ing with your weight and worrying about it all the time is a time killing, life wasting venture.  Our protocol for one, is an excellent opportunity to pin-point your “IT”.  …That being said…DON’T beat yourself up, go into hiding, be ashamed if you deviated or swayed from our protocol, or any other regime.  TELL US.  We want to help you, if you want to help yourself.  I am a work in progress.  You are a work in progress.  WE ALL are a work in progress.
What is your intention for starting any weight loss program?  Is it solely to release weight and look a certain way?  Fit in a certain size?  Are you punishing/depriving yourself after a binge?  Want to make the scale tell you a certain number? Before you begin, always question your intention.  Maybe you need help figuring this out…you know, sorting it all out in your head.  Ask us for help!
I have said it before and I will say it again.  TURN OFF as many of those people, places or things that feed your pretty little mind ideas that you are only as worthy as the way your body looks.  You are beautiful, YOU!  Beauty comes from your SOUL.  And starts with LOVING YOURSELF.  The first step to successful weight maintenance is loving your body now.  What makes you think you will love yourself 30 lbs from now, if you don’t love yourself now?

Delish Homemade Tomato Basil Soup

I made this tonight. I kind of just winged it! It took about 10-15 minutes to prepare. It turned out delicious and I just had to document it and share so I remember how to make it next time!! It’s farmer’s market season too! Whoop!

tomato soup

Delish Homemade Tomato Basil Soup
Ingredients:
3-4 Fresh Large Tomatoes or 6-8 Medium Tomatoes
1 Tblsp Butter
1 Clove Garlic (diced fine)
1 Celery Stick (diced fine)
1/2 Yellow Onion (chopped fine)
1 Jalapeno (seeds & ribs removed and diced fine)
1-2 Cups of Organic Chicken Broth (or homemade stock)
Fresh Basil 6-8 Basil Leaves (chopped up)
1-2 tsp of Salt to taste
1/2 Cup of Diced Garlic Sausage (optional)
Cream (optional)

Directions:
Cut out the core of the tomatoes and throw the tomato chunks in your blender or food processor. Puree. Pour into pot on stove on medium-low. While heating the tomatoes put 1 Tblsp butter in a frying pan on medium. Heat until it starts to bubble. Add the diced garlic, celery, white onion, and jalapeno. Cook until the onion is clear looking (you can also just skip that step and add it to the pot – I like the flavour it creates when I pre-cook these ingredients).  Add to pot. Add chicken broth, chopped basil, diced garlic sausage. Add salt to taste. Cook on medium-low for 30 minutes to an hour.

I used garlic sausage from Messinger Meats in Mirror, Alberta.  I recommend purchasing your meat from your local hormone and chemical free butcher.  I sometimes like to add a dash of heavy cream to my individual bowl of soup.  It’s a nice treat.

Do you have a favorite soup recipe?  I’d love to hear about it!

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.
