In the year prior to discovering Derby Derm, so many things happened in my life. My father was diagnosed with cancer (he is now cancer free), his brother struggles with diabetes, and I was becoming someone I didn’t like to be around. Unmotivated, negative, a Dr. Pepper and sugar junkie, and was worried about what my being overweight was doing to my health, and worried about my family things as well. For a while, I would go to the gym, but it would hurt my knees, or I’d feel out of place. About a week before I turned 34, I saw a coupon in the paper for Derby Derm. It was a special they were running for a discounted weight loss consultation with blood test and all the works. This was what I needed! I had just gone shopping the day before to pick up some new pants and shirts. I refused to make the clothing purchase because I would be getting a size 20 pants and a shirt with yet another X before L! I wanted to go and get the blood work done and see how my numbers were, to see what I already knew. What I found when I went there was a plan that I could follow, great people to cheer me on and guide me through the struggles I would have along the path to becoming the person I am now. I can tell you that the person I am this minute is not the same person I was mid- February. I am more positive, energetic, and my body just feels clean. Clean of the bad foods, sugar, soda, and the depression I would feel when I would eat fast food more than once a day. I never imagined that I would be this person. I also don’t have to wear glasses anymore. My eye doctor told me that sometimes nearsightedness can be caused by sugar buildup on the cornea. Apparently that’s what caused mine! My original goals have been far surpassed…I wanted to go to the gym a few times a month, but now I go a few times a week (and hate it when I can’t make it)! I’m eating the right foods, and the right portion size. I don’t wake with back pain, or get knee pain from exercising. The benefits to weight loss and good meal planning are amazing! The thought of soda now make my stomach turn. I’m now looking to help my family out and show them what I’ve learned, so they can see how I’ve changed, not just the physical person they see, but my habits as well. I love shopping even more today, eight months after starting the program. I just purchased a size 8 skirt and a size small shirt and sweater. I can’t thank Derby Derm enough for offering this program. It has truly changed my life in so many ways!
