I met Alisa and Jessica through my acupuncturist, Raven Koch, this past February. When I spoke with Alisa I just signed up even though I was afraid and had my doubts. I felt I had no other choice because I’ve had irregular periods since I was 20. I’m now 32 and I’ve always been overweight. Basically, I grew up on the Great American Diet of white bread and the other garbage that goes with that. I really have not known how to eat right and at 250 lbs I had to do something or else I’m heading for Type 2 Diabetes. It’s serious and scary. I’ve had acid reflux, heal pain, irregular periods, and basically I’m a sugar addict. I have also had a hard time dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression. This program has taught me how to eat and helped me get off medication. I was on Metformin for PCOS, which I’ve stopped taking since starting my program, and I got my period this morning for the second month in a row! Sometimes I’d gone for years without getting my period, so this is incredible.
I’ve lost almost 2 sizes – my old size 22s don’t fit at all. I’m now wearing a 20 and soon it will be an 18, since the 20s are a bit big. I’m feeling more comfortable although I’m not there yet. I signed up for the 3 month program and just decided to extend it for another 2 months since I really want to stay on track and learn more. Overall my liver is feeling better, which was confirmed by my acupuncturist. I’ve been sleeping so much better at night and not as depressed. I feel even hopeful… it’s Spring and I’m feeling refreshed… especially because I just finished the cleanse. It’s so nice to be part of a community of women who support and help each other towards learning to be healthy.
Last night after writing this, I had a dream about the ladies at FLO Living. It was like my bed was right in their office and so it was like them working around me. I felt so taken care of. It was a nice feeling.
