I’m Meghan, and I’m 40 years young!
I’d like to share my short story that I know will resonate with you…
My struggle with weight loss started because of comments my mother would make about my size and eating habits when I was a very young teen. To the disappointment of my mother, I never became one of the cool skinny girls in school.
As an adult, I continued to gain weight — eventually tipping the scale at 210 pounds.
It wasn’t always how I looked that bothered me — it was more the physical pain and health issues that accompanied my large size. I was constantly inundated with trips to the doctor’s office — to get looked at for everything from knee and back pain to chest pains to being constantly short of breath to severe insomnia.
Desperate to feel better, I suffered through countless diets, where I:
- Ate food that tasted like cardboard
- Took dangerous and expensive prescription medicines
- Forced down diet pills that made my heart race
- Even starved myself for days on end, so wanting for something to happen
But they never worked. Every time I would stop dieting, the weight would pile back on — and then some.
Heartbreakingly, I eventually gave up trying and resigned to being overweight for the rest of my life.
…until a random visit to my family doctor turned my life upside down.
It was a Monday morning.
I had been feeling nauseous for the second day in a row.
My husband wanted to get me to the doctor to see what was wrong.
After 40 minutes in the waiting room the nurse came and got me. She took my weight (the WORST part of a visit to the Doctor for an overweight girl like me) and got me ready to see Dr. Larimer.
After a few minutes of basic questions he ruled out the common offenders and asked me to take a pregnancy test (anyone else not like peeing on a stick?).
I could see on Dr. Larimer’s face, minutes later when he reentered the room, that something wasn’t right. I immediately began to feel nervous.
“Meghan, Congratulations, it looks like you’re going to be a mother”, he began.
My mind began to race and I felt what could only be described as wonder and joy.
But, what happened next would send me plummeting into a spiral of fear that would change my life forever.
“But, I’m concerned”, he continued, “that if you don’t lose your excess weight, there’s a strong chance you are going to lose your child”.
Suddenly I felt like I needed to swallow but I couldn’t and my heart started pounding.
No longer was my weight problem something I could ignore. I may lose my first child because of my weight? I hadn’t considered that as even a possibility.
In that moment, reality hit me like a ton of bricks. I took a deep breath and when I exhaled, the tears started flowing.
I continued to cry for what seemed like forever. It was an utterly helpless feeling.
When I arrived home that evening, I was confused, alone and still in shock. I wanted to be strong but I knew if I spoke to my husband I’d break into tears. Finally I shared the news with my husband.
I was so ashamed and scared to tell him that “I” may be the reason we can’t have a beautiful child together.
As I cried, my husband, too, began to cry (something I had never seen him do).
I realized in that moment that unless I figured out how to drop my weight quickly, there was a good chance I would lose our baby and things would never be the same.
Tuesday, 2:51 PM I texted my older sister:
Tara called me and I shared with her what had happened. Like the good older sister she is, she calmed me down and asked if she could stop by the house later in the evening to chat more.
Tara, too was battling excessive weight gain. An accident 10 years ago left her with a crippling back pain and she’s been unable to perform any sort of physical activity since then.
Just like I have, Tara suffered through countless diet programs without any success. And also like me, the weight always came back with more once she stopped the diets.
If anyone would understand, it would be Tara.
Wednesday, 1:28AM, laying in bed trying to sleep when I hear a loud knock at the front door.
So loud, in fact, that my husband jumped up out of a deep sleep, scrambled for a baseball bat that lay near the dresser and clumsily stumbled toward the front door.
I tossed on my robe and shadowed nervously behind him.
To my surprise it was Tara!
“You’re awake!”, she said.
“I am now, what are you doing here?”, I asked in a daze.
“I know it’s late. Work kept me away until now, but I had to show you tonight”, said Tara, who also looked tired but strangely different from when I saw her just a month ago during Thanksgiving.
“You don’t see it?”, she asked. “I knew I had to show you, otherwise you won’t believe it. I did it!”
“Oh my goodness!”, I yelled back in shock! “You’re SO skinny! What happened?”
For the next 15-minutes, Tara proceeded to tell me everything she’d been up to for the last several weeks. Since we last saw each other, she’d been drinking a special tea that her husband, Todd had prepared for her every morning— and that alone led her to losing 34 pounds in a matter of three weeks.
I sat in silence, mouth wide opened, in a trance, listening to every word….
She continued to tell me that Todd spent the last few months intensely formulating a delicious tasting natural tea that has the same fat fighting properties as capsaicin (a compound found in hot chilli peppers) — and how the tea transforms your body into a fat burning machine.
The bizarre discovery, and what had gotten Todd so excited, is that the special tea converts useless and dangerous “bad” fat into “good” fat — and in return, the converted “good” fat burns the other remaining ugly “bad” fat for energy, even if you don’t move a single muscle.
Tara continued to explain that this special tea might very well be what I needed to end my long battle with weight loss, like it had done for her. She told me I’d need to start right away.
Tara grabbed a pen and paper and outlined exactly the ingredients needed for the tea that is designed to massively boost my metabolism and turn my body into a fat destroying machine.
I was intrigued but still skeptical, especially when none of the diet programs I had suffered through had ever spoken about a ‘special’ tea that can help boost your metabolism and burn fat without exercising.
I thanked Tara for being a good sister and for coming by so late, and we all went back to bed for the night.
The next morning I jumped out of bed like a girl on a mission! I headed to the grocery store and purchased every ingredient on Tara’s list.
I just remembered thinking “This seems far too easy”.
But I was desperate and ready to try anything.
Plus, Tara was the living proof that the special tea works for fat loss since she herself had successfully lost all her excess weight after battling weight loss for many years.
I immediately began drinking the special tea that had helped Tara lose weight and followed the other surprisingly simple steps she’d shared with me the night before.
Since I took Tara’s advice, here are the SHOCKING results I experienced that I will always consider a true miracle:
- My weight dropped like a brick from 210 lbs to 178 lbs in just under 4 weeks. My husband and I no longer had to worry about delivery issues with our baby. I’m happy to say we had a healthy, happy baby girl named Sage and we couldn’t be more blessed!
- I have since lost an additional 30 lbs (62 pounds total)! This was over the course of just seven months. It was far easier than I expected, I never once felt hungry and I’ve not gained back any of the weight since.
- Physically, I feel great. I don’t have pain everywhere anymore. I sleep well and I have so much more energy and stamina. I no longer get tired doing simple things like walking up the stairs.
- I just had my 40th birthday and, I feel as healthy and energetic as I did in my 20’s. Keeping up with children would have been impossible for me at my previous weight!
- My extreme fatigue and dramatic mood swings have disappeared and my creativity and “zest for life” have come roaring back just in time to welcome a new member into our family. I truly couldn’t feel happier.
Since then, something else amazing has happened and it’s the main reason I’m sitting at my desk writing this letter now.
My brother-in-law, Todd, is an amazing person who is not only brilliant but also a natural teacher with a big heart. Our lives had been changed so much by Todd’s breakthrough discovery that we encouraged him to share his tips with women everywhere.
Todd has since taken leave from his day job and made it his personal mission in life to share his healthy weight loss discovery with women all across the world.
