In 2014 my highest weight was 285 lbs. I was desperate at that time to change my life and to finally lose all of this excess weight. No one could have controlled my food addiction, including me. I had high blood pressure, cardio obstructive pulmonary disease, and I was so physically unfit. Part of my background was in health and fitness. I knew better and could have changed things but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I was depressed and just felt helpless and hopeless.
Beginning the Journey
I began a journey to lose the weight and to get fit. Weight Watchers, The Military Diet, the egg diet, the cabbage soup diet and many others had ruled my adult life. This time I wanted to try something different. Research and opinion was shifting and so I tried a low carbohydrate diet. I visited a website and took a quiz and it told me I had an addiction to carbohydrates. That just gave me validation to try it. 🙂
Losing Weight the Low Carb Way
I lost weight with doing a Low Carb High Fat lifestyle because it helped curb my cravings for sugar and carbohydrates. I lost down to 208 lbs which took about a year and a half. As I typically would do, I started putting it back on again. I gained back up to 243 lbs. After doing that I knew I had to find something that would help me stop that cycle.
The Phentermine/Adipex Way
I started in August taking phentermine (adipex). It worked well. I lost 30 lbs and was happy with the way things were going. My only issue was that I was fighting the fight in my mind . My “cheat” day was on Friday though and I wouldn’t be able to get things under control till Monday. I was continually tempted to eat sweets and potato chips. Pringle’s were my go to chips. I began the search for something that would help me with that and something I could take forever. I didn’t want a drug.
My sister had started taking Plexus Triplex Combo which contained a probiotic, bio cleanse and a “pink” drink. She was having fantastic results with her health and as I listened to her telling me about the Combo health fixing her health issues, I knew I had to try it.
My journey with Plexus has been miraculous. I have no more daily pain in my head. There were times where it was so bad I had to go to the doctor for pain relief. That is a thing of the past. There isn’t this burning in my throat that makes me think I might be having a heart attack. I am sleeping better at night. No more hourly trips to the bathroom. My feelings of hopelessness and helplessness have disappeared and I’m happy for the first time in my life.
My weight loss has picked up and I now weigh 194. I’ve lost a total of 96 pounds so far and I don’t battle the addiction to food anymore. I don’t think about food. My serving sizes are now normal and I don’t have to medicate myself with food. More that all that, I can take this the rest of my life. These products are all natural and plant-based.
