I’ve been on diets literally since I was ten years old, and that’s not counting the doctors telling my Mom to watch my food intake at six years old. Then last December, I turned 56 and realized I was heavier than ever. I retired at 55 rather than take permanent disability because I couldn’t stand for ten minutes or walk more than a block without extreme pain. That was when I realized that I needed to make a major change in my life.
My life is better since discovering SANE in that I am much stronger and have cut my insulin by more than half. I was even able to mow the yard this year. I have more confidence than I’ve had in years!
SANE is different than anything else that I have tried in the past because it works. I have lost 45 lbs in three months and have 55 more to go. Also, nobody makes you feel guilty or like a failure if you slip up, but I don’t even want to “cheat” because I feel so much better.
The number one piece of advice that I would offer someone who is just starting out on their SANE journey is to be patient with yourself. You didn’t gain the weight overnight and it won’t come off that fast, but YOU ARE WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT!
