I have been overweight all my life. I was the chubby kid that other kids picked on. As a young adult, I tried fad diets, pills, liquid meal replacements, and every program I could afford. At 45 years old and working as a sales rep, I reached my highest weight at 312 pounds.
My turning point occurred when I was packing to go to a meeting where I was receiving an award. As I tried to squeeze into my size 48 pants, I realized that at the highest point of my career, I was at the lowest point in my life.
I returned home, determined I wasn't going to live like that anymore. I tried counting calories, counting carbs and cutting out all the foods I love. I was constantly hungry and felt deprived.
Around this time, I was 231 pounds; I was matched with Jennifer (a SENSA® success story). On our first date, I noticed she was shaking something on her food. She then told me about SENSA®.
During our next few dates, I noticed Jenny was sprinkling everything she ate with SENSA®. I also noticed she wasn't finishing her meals.
One night, as I was complementing her on her weight loss, I said, “I guess SENSA® must really work." She then admitted she had been secretly sprinkling my food, too!
I started borrowing Jenny's SENSA®, and eventually she told me to order my own. And that's exactly what I did. I am now down to 205 pounds.
