‘You can slim with the iBODY – I’m proof!’
Jennifer P., our new member in October, tells us how she lost a life-changing 62 lbs and kept it off for 12 years.
Jennifer P., 62
I first started gaining weight when I was in my teens. I’ve got a really sweet tooth, so it didn’t help that I worked in a newsagent, where there were lots of sweets and chocolate bars close to hand! I also put weight on with each of my pregnancies, and by baby number three, I was heavier than I’d ever been.
I’d always been the ‘comedian’, making jokes about my size before anyone else could. Deep down, I wasn’t in a good place, though. I was so unhappy with how I looked, I once faked an illness to get out of a New Year’s Eve night out. My health suffered, too, and I was turned down for surgery on my knee because my weight made me too much of a risk for the anesthetic.
"Look at this, you'll know how much I love the iBODY?"
"These jeans are sze 12 - And I'm so pround of that."
"I was really struggling with my mental health - and I knew my weight wasn't helping matters..."
"Before I used the iBODY, even simple things like getting up out of the chair or climbing the stairs were difficult for me."
The very first time I heard about the iBODY was actually at the dentist! I overheard three women in the waiting room talking about their weekend away and how they would still be able to enjoy their meals.
'My ears pricked up and I thought, ‘that’s for me!’
I order it right away, using 20 minutes daily – and I lost weight each week. I’d stay on track. It was a very dark period in my life, as I was also dealing with problems at work, and I started to suffer from anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. I knew the support I would get from the iBODY would help me deal with my weight issue.
TAKING THAT FIRST STEP!
The minute I walked into www.BetterNBeyond.com, I knew I’d done the right thing. Although I was shocked to see the number on the scales, BNB Consultant reassured me that I could lose the weight I wanted to.
I love the simplicity of the device. It’s great that I can have chocolate and sweet things without feeling guilty, and that it fits around my life, so I can do "normal" things like celebrating birthdays, eating out, and going to parties.
'As for me, there’s no better friend to be!'
Although I’ve been a target for 12 years, I still use the iBODY every day.
Since I’ve slimmed down, my mental health has improved dramatically. I’ve also had major surgery and I didn’t have to worry about my weight this time, which was such a relief. When I think about my life before – I feel like I’m in a lovely dream! I’d encourage anyone to give the iBODY a go... life’s too short for ‘if only’!
