lost most of my hair and became diabetic and asthmatic – most mornings I woke up and didn’t even have the energy to get out of bed, let alone take the handful of medications my lifestyle required and haul myself off to work as an elementary school music teacher.
My husband Mickey and I had become ARIIX representatives almost as soon as the company had formed. We believed in the quality of the ARIIX products and had decided that our time would be well spent attending the ARIIX opening in Los Angeles, California in April of 2012. But I had no idea that sitting in that room and listening to the Slenderiix story would change my life, and the lives of my family, forever. We were about the 5th people in line to get our sample of the ‘special sauce’, and couldn’t wait to try it out. The bottles were opened as soon as we got home, and within the first 2 days, even while in the loading phase of the program, I started to lose weight. I couldn’t believe it at first, as 5 and then 15, and then 20 pounds came off during the month of May. People at work were noticing the way I was eating and my thinner profile, and as May melted into June, the weight kept melting off too.
I wish you could have seen the looks on their faces when I went back to school in September after having lost a total of (then) 53 pounds. After my next visit to the doctor, I was taking only one of the three diabetes medicines I had been taking for years, and my cholesterol levels which had been over the moon before, were well within normal levels.
I am so proud of myself! And so thankful to ARIIX for coming up with this program that WORKS! I played Frisbee on the beach with my family this summer, rather than sitting by and watching while others have fun. I went hiking and walked for miles on the Oregon beaches, without having to worry about having my inhaler or my glucose tablets along for the ride. Sure, there were some challenges, and the occasional set back, like gaining six pounds on vacation, but with the Slenderiix program those extra pounds came right back off again as soon as I returned home. Amazing!
What’s next for me? I plan on losing about 25 more pounds. I’m happy being a size 16 now, but who knows what will happen. I would like to take horseback lessons and continue hiking. If we get some snow, I’ll try out my new snowshoes this winter. The point is that now I can do almost anything I want. Thanks to the Slenderiix program, I have my life back!
