Let me first start by saying, I am so surprised at myself. I really cannot believe I (ME!) have stuck with a nutritional program for 6+ weeks and more importantly, walk/jog 2-3 miles 5x a week. (See week 1 , week 2, week 3 , week 4 ) Now for some of you who are health finatics and exercise born humans that live breath and die by a workout, this will sound a little pathetic to you. I am happy to say that my baby step approach to a more healthy eating life style and exercise has landed me with no more bloating and down 7 lbs. No joke. *I have included affiliate links for Nordstrom and Wayfair in case something sparks your interest.
(week 6 complete / start to week 7)
I don’t know about you but the last 11 years since gaining 65 lbs during pregnancy and then hitting 40 years old, my metabolism changed and life as a string bean, junk food junkie never gain a pound girl who laughed at exercise ….. left town and never came back. That girl was gone. The new me internally struggled with extra weight, bad eating habits and it kind of ran me over. I mean don’t get me wrong, I looked fine on the outside but never felt good on the inside.
I think a lot of it was my brain. I had no energy and no motivation to do anything. This went on for the last 11 years off and on. I have always had 10 things going on at once and I always have appeared to have a ton of energy but you know what, I pushed through and lots of times, I was aggravated inside.

No more bloating and down 7 lbs
Aggravated that I would sit up at night and eat a bag of chips and 5 cookie snack packs that were the kids. Oh and don’t forget the glass of wine. -ha. For me, I love to get on my laptop around 9:30pm after the house is quiet, have a glass of wine and just eat crappy food. I was always able to do it before so why couldn’t I do it now?

My stomach would be so bloated every morning and every morning I would tell myself I need to exercise but never did. I hated exercise. No more bloating alone is a gift that I am so happy to have. I am so thankful for the shakes that I crave and the nutritional program that literally has cut my cravings in half. It’s amazing what happens to your body when you fuel it with good stuff! Who experiences binge eating at night and has the bloat issue? PS. the BIG Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts soon so be sure to do your shopping from here and check My Favorites page for new items. I mean, who the heck wants to pay full price? Not me!
