WOW! Hello Everyone! I have such exciting news to share with you all!
I HAVE REACHED MY GOAL WEIGHT!!!!
I LOST 125 lbs with SENSA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is such an awesome feeling! Though I always knew this day would come… it was hard to picture what it would really feel like when it did or even what I would look like, since I was not that person with “skinny” clothes in my closet that I wanted to fit into again and I have never been as small as I am today! SENSA has totally changed my life and how I live it over the last 3 years. SENSA has become a member of my family. My kids talk about it, my husband talks about it and is using it and of course, I talk about it 24/7 basically like it is one of my children… almost – except it fits in my purse and doesn’t talk back…lol!
So back to the AWESOME FEELING part… I can shop anywhere! I can swim anytime! I can jog a 10k! All of these things weren’t really on my “To-Do” list a few years ago. And if I am honest, more than just a few years really – more like my entire adult life!
It has been quiet an amazing journey for me! From self-loathing to self-discovery, three years ago, my goals were limited to lose some weight, feel better and live longer. All respectable and normal goals – don’t get me wrong! I just re-read one my oldest comments I posted during a weigh-in on the SENSA Community forums back in early 2009. I said that my goal at that point was to lose between 60-100 lbs and to be able to share my husband’s jeans again. I would say that was reasonable. And in the first 12-Months I lost 70 lbs! I was well on my way. Here’s me one year in with SENSA….
That set of pictures alone was enough to motivate me, but there was so much more to the story! I had started a Couch to 5k jogging program towards the end of my first 12 months. I never thought I would be able to, let alone be willing to JOG! I signed myself up for a 10k race in late March and I trained and I jogged the race! I have NEVER done It became a way of life, not a diet! We found new family traditions that got us all more active too! We wanted to be a healthy and happy family and SENSA made it possible for us.That set of pictures alone was enough to motivate me, but there was so much more to the story!

I signed myself up for a 10k race in late March and I trained and I jogged the race! I have NEVER done anything like it before! It was such an amazing realization that I could do ANYTHING I set my mind to!!!!! Nothing could stop me! I kept losing and I kept finding new ways to exercise too that didn’t require a gym and didn’t require that I leave my family for extended periods of time and some even allowed us fun family time! The weight kept coming off with SENSA and life just kept getting better and better!
I started really acting healthier at some point. Making food decisions that weren’t based on my emotions or mood. Feeding my family better foods and trying instill better habits for my children to learn from. My husband got on board with SENSA too and started to lose weight! It was a full family make-over! It became a way of life, not a diet! We found new family traditions that got us all more active too! We wanted to be a healthy and happy family and SENSA made it possible for us. Good luck to everyone out there sprinkling away the pounds. Trust me, it may seem like your goal is unattainable but it’s not! It may take some time, but all your hard work is worth it!
