How did I lose weight in Milamores?
I remember one time when I was about thirteen and my dad took me to see an orthopedist. We had scheduled the appointment after my knees came out of place as I ran. I felt awful. When the incident happened I was playing tennis, which was my greatest passion, but my problem was not with sport, it was a matter of weight. I couldn’t train as much as I’d liked to for there was a constant risk of a more severe injury.
The doctor came up to me and asked if I liked Doritos and Cocacola; I said yes; he replied: that’s all a bunch of garbage. I was forced to learn a few nutrition hacks after the event. I dropped sodas and I did not even think of carbs after 5 pm. I started working out in order to strengthen my muscles. In the end I reached my ideal weight and I kept it until I came to Colombia. I had been thin for a few years.
My name is Beatriz and I am Venezuelan. My country’s tough situation forced me to leave my family, my friends, and a life of comfort I had gotten used to. It’s been three years since I came to Colombia. My situation was fraught. My stress levels rose rapidly and stayed up. I could not stop emotional eating, and what I put into my body consisted mostly on junk food. I worked at an Italian restaurant, and I felt almost addicted to the dessert-section of the menu. Can you imagine? I lived alone, I worked late, I didn’t work out. My self-esteem was dropping by the minute and the only consolation I found was through eating the greasiest, most spiced meals. The bill came due sure enough. I gained 33 pounds. Thirty-three. Those are the numbers for my first few years in Colombia.
I started working for Milamores about a month ago. I came looking for a job and what I found was a fantastic team. Seeing them opened my eyes. I decided to get back on the healthy life had in Venezuela. On the first few days I lost almost nine pounds. It’s now been a month and I’ve lost almost fourteen pounds. It’s all been possible thanks to an awakening of consciousness in relation to my eating and to Milamores’ PerfectBody. When I told the team members about the results I’d gotten, and they offered me their full support. We motivate each other.
I’ve lost weight, but mostly I’ve renovated my life both on the inside and on the outside. I now understand the company’s motto: “Naturally transforming lives”. I life like an improved version of the Beatriz I was a month ago. I can affirm I love myself. Our closest friends will always say we look beautiful, but the most crucial part of it is believing it for ourselves. Every day I say: “Who’s going to love me if not me?”.
Weight loss is not a matter of vanity. I like to say it’s a matter of magic, for that is what we feel when we look good. Most people like to think about sacrifices, about giving up on certain meals. I focus on keeping positive thoughts. I focus on balance. I focus on rationing and measure. When we crave something that harms our body we must think about that harm rather than what we’re missing. Our priority must be health, and the PerfectBody has helped me regain mine.
There’s a sensitive topic I want to address in order to help people with my testimony. I suffered the loss of my father two years ago. His death could have been avoided had he sustained a healthier diet in his youth. When he passed away I has just arrived in Colombia and it pained me deeply that I wasn’t by his side. My work at Milamores has connected me with a commitment to extend the experience I had with my father and help save some lives.
I said above that my father’s loss could have been avoided. He didn’t put much thought into what he ate when he was young. He wasn’t obese, he didn’t have much extra weight either. His true trouble was on the inside. I strongly believe that his organs would have worked just fine for many years if he’d been conscious about what he ate. His last years would have been less painful; he wouldn’t have struggled with diabetes, nor gone through exhausting heart surgery. His body suffered. Though he loved sport, food took him away from me.
I do not deny that some situations are anxiety bombs. I experienced it myself when I came to Colombia, and I can relate to having food as an emotional ally. Out of experience I’d like to propose a change of thought. I propose to eat only what our bodies need. I propose to hydrate constantly with a healthy beverage. I propose to increase exercise. I propose wellness and I ensure it will bring joy.
I loved writing for you and sharing my experience. I love being a part of this marvelous team. I thank you for reading my story, and I’d love your sharing it so we reach more people and transform more lives.
