Brandie went from a 3XL to XL

Brandie Walker Smith:

“This time last year I weighed 320 lbs. After a “pre-diabetes” scare at a routine Doctor’s visit, I decided to change some things about my caffeine and sugar fueled existence..not everything mind you, but some things. I knew that I did not want to be diabetic when it was fully in my power to prevent it from happening. I did not want to suffer with health issues. I did not want my children to grow up without their mother. I did not want to be selfish anymore. My first step was to stop consuming massive amounts of Dr Pepper all day every day. Anybody who knows me knows that was a huge accomplishment in itself. DP was something I loved. I craved. I was an addict. I HAD to have it. There comes a point when you have to ask yourself…which do you want more? Life? Or Dr Pepper? It’s really not a hard choice at all. But, it is one that you must make for yourself. In the first 3 months, I had switched from Dr Pepper to plain water with the occasional half sweet/half unsweet tea thrown in there. I couldn’t stand the taste of my once beloved DP and I had lost 24 lbs. This wasn’t so bad after all. It was actually pretty easy! It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you set your mind to it. The next 3 months I only lost 4 lbs. What!? But I drink water!! Yes, that’s true. I also eat crap and let’s not even talk about exercise. Around that 6 month mark, I was introduced to Skinny Fiber. I was super skeptical, after all just how many miracles in a bottle are out there? If all of these things do what they claim, why are there so many obese people in the world? Why am I one of them? I could blame it on things that happened to me as a child, my genes, life circumstances. We all have our own excuses. The truth is no one made me this way but ME, just as no one can cure me but ME. I sat back and watched. I saw all of the before/after photos. Read the testimonials. It worked for them. Could it work for me? I have a history of deadly blood clots in my lungs and because of that, I am leery to take anything at all especially some crazy supplement that is the next best thing. Finally after tons of research, talking to people who were actually taking it, learning that it would not interfere with my medication, knowing that there was a 30 day money back guarantee…I did it. I ordered!! I was so excited, yet at the same time scared. I didn’t want to fail. I wanted this to work. I needed it to work! Within the first few days, I noticed I was sleeping much better. I had more energy. I didn’t want to nap all the time. As a night shift nurse, this was highly unusual for me. The first week I lost 6 pounds. Within 3 weeks, I had dropped from size 26 jeans to size 22 jeans. Today is my 6 month Skinny Fiber anniversary. Since I started SF I have lost 24lbs and tons of inches. I can now wear an XL t-shirt for the first time since early childhood. I still have a long way to go, and many more pounds and inches to lose. But I have gained something much more important. I have gained self love and self confidence. I have gained an inner peace. I don’t hate my body anymore. No one can tell you the “right” way to do things. Who makes those rules? YOU do. YOU decide what your way is. My way is Skinny Fiber. :)”

    This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how
    you presented it. Too cool!
