I come from a Greek/Armenian background, so to me and my family vibes and energy we send out is really big. From a young age my mother had taught me that what you send out… you receive. Although at 16 I didn’t really understand much about it, until I hit 21. I always was pretty slim growing up.. My mother fed me as healthy as possible, I did lots of exercise and activities. From a young age, reading magazines with skinny girls posing in bikinis, and with all the popular girls at school having slim bodies, I grew up to be very self-conscious about my looks. I always wanted to maintain my image. From 16 to 20 I was slim, although I know at 16 I’m still a child and my body is going through changes. It’s normal to grow and not have the same figure I had when I was younger. I didn’t grow slimmer… I grew fatter. I had given myself the green card to eating because I felt so thin that all that weight wouldn’t catch onto me. But by 21 I was 190 pounds. I’m 5’8, which wasn’t SO bad… because I know there’s others that are struggling with way more weight to lose. But going from 135 to 190 was a big jump for me. I was very sad that many of my clothes didn’t fit. I was downright depressed. I felt horrible underneath my skin.
Until one day my boyfriend mentioned to me this book. I didn’t really pay attention to him, until I started a new job at the time and the woman working there was reading the same book. So I told myself, “What the heck, I guess it’s a sign, let me read the book and see what it has to offer.”
I took my time to read the book. Since I was always so busy I would try to read some pages at work, or before sleeping. Little did I notice… I had lost 40 pounds. I wasn’t back to 135, but losing that weight did make me happy!!!!!!!!
Am I still struggling with weight? YES, WHO ISN’T!!!!!! Nowadays with the media and the manipulations of body images. So do O honestly think this book worked for me? YES, ABSOLUTELY YES… that’s why I’m gonna read it again to lose those last 20 pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!
