I have been a large guy since my teens. I wanted to lose weight because I didn't feel normal. I felt so ashamed. I knew I had to do something. So I tried low-carb diets, the 3 Day Diet and the Cottage Cheese Diet. I hated them because the moment I went off them, I gained all the weight back.
Two years ago, I was watching Dateline NBC, when they featured Dr. Hirsch discussing The Sprinkle Diet Study. My weight at the time was 264. I had literally become a hermit, and was ashamed to eat in front of anybody. I prayed that it would work.
I found the SENSA® Web site and started using it. I lost 8 pounds in the first month. It was the first weight-loss program I found where I could continue to eat what I wanted and didn't have to do anything drastic.
I have consistently lost 7 or 8 pounds a month since I started SENSA®. I have lost 49 pounds so far. The steady weight loss has been motivating and the compliments I receive keep me motivated to keep going.
Another thing I like is that my clothes fit better. I have lost 4 inches in my waist and this has really helped my self esteem. I intend to keep going.
My social life has improved because I no longer feel ashamed. I used to eat a lot of junk, but I've lost all my cravings for chips and candy bars.
I feel like a person who isn't afraid to do anything anymore - a person who is not afraid to take risks.
