Mother’s Day is here again and the celebration of life, friendship, and motherhood begins. A mother is undoubtedly one of the most influential people in a child’s life. Her example of what it means to be a mother is seen whether it is your own mother or someone you look up to that has been with you and made an impact throughout your life. I have the pleasure of rearing my three grandchildren and sharing in the most important years of their lives. But, making each day’s workload move as smoothly and efficiently as possible, requires much thought, preparation, consistency and dedication with a purpose. The effort and inspiration a mother offers to her children results from her own creative thoughts and helps develop a natural and very strong bond between a mother and a child. The lessons she teaches her children equips them for life’s many challenges and provides the tools to handle each one as it presents itself whether good or bad.
In my case I found a challenge I had tried to handle many times over and that was my weight. This was an area that I needed to accomplish to be the best I could for each one of these special children. I was homeschooling one child, another one in 4th grade and a junior in high school and college in the afternoon. All of the children have special challenges and needs and therefore many appointments and time on the road was required. Teaching lessons about how to keep house, prepare meals, interact with one another and be involved in various social events required setting an example in appearance, attitude and scheduling. But there I was, trying to teach these kids how to eat and act, and I’m carrying around 45 lbs of extra weight, trying to accomplish all that was expected of me. I had spent many years of my life trying to keep my weight under control but failed over and over again.
One day, as I folding clothes on the kitchen table, a commercial about SENSA® was on the television. My 10 year old granddaughter, knowing how I was struggling with my weight, asked me if I would like to try SENSA®….and the rest is history. I’ve lost 45 pounds with SENSA and have managed to keep it off, even with all my busy schedule and responsibilities. I could eat what I was already preparing for the family, sprinkle SENSA on it and enjoy my time with my family. The SENSA® weight-loss program is designed with mothers in mind. No more measuring or weighing my food. No more special food plans or expensive foods to buy or prepare in order to lose weight. Looking back on past diet nightmares…I mean, experiences, I felt so alone and miserable. I was hungry, miserable, and I had no energy. On top of that, I had to cook all these yummy meals for my family, then sit down to a bland and boring meal that probably contained little or no nutritional value. That wasn’t my experience with SENSA. I bought SENSA®’s 6 month weight-loss program and lost 45 pounds in 7 months, went from a size 14 to a 4 and from 175 to 130 pounds. I feel good, look good and my energy level is now ready for all the things mothers do the best; loving our children! I want the mothers reading this to know they are not alone in their weight loss struggle. There’s a whole SENSA Community out there, sprinkling right along with you, trying to balance being a woman who feels good about herself and a good mother. You can do it! Take care of yourself and put your health first. You and your family will be the better for it!
Happy Mother’s Day!
