I would like to begin first by thanking Marcelle and the Weight Loss Support Team for all your hard work and dedication in helping us succeed. I also wanted to share a story that I hope will help to confirm for each one of you on this journey that you have made the right choice.
A year ago, this past July I sat in my Primary Care Physicians office having gone through the standard questions you would expect at your annual wellness checkup. Except I wasn’t feeling well at all. There was nothing specific that I could point my finger at and say, “There, this seems to be my problem.” I just felt exhausted ALL the time. I was forty pounds overweight and desperate. I decided to ask my Primary if she could offer me any method to help me lose the weight. I explained that since turning sixty none of my old tried and true methods worked anymore. It didn’t seem to matter what I tried, intermittent fasting, HCG, increasing my exercise to seven days a week. My body had somehow become wise to all my tricks, and it wasn’t buying what I was selling. My doctor, after listening patiently, looked at me and said, “As it happens, I do have something to offer you that has been shown to be quite effective. There are two drugs I’d like to tell you about, Ozempic and Wegovy. Both are similar in composition, and the medical field has been using them successfully for some time to help diabetics keep their AIC in check, but most recently they discovered a side benefit. These two drugs have also helped patients lose significant amounts of weight.”
Well, as you can imagine, I was all ears. A balloon of hope rose to the surface in my heart. My doctor explained that all it would require was for me to come in for a weekly injection. Sounded simple enough. She said I didn’t have to change the way I was eating. I didn’t have to put in hours of exercise, I was ready to jump on the bandwagon right then and there! But then I asked her if there were any side effects. That’s when she directed me to the website and encouraged me to do my own due diligence before making the decision. I agreed that I would, and I’d let her know. I left there feeling lighter just knowing there was a possible solution.
When I got home the first thing that I did was log on to the Ozempic website and as I began to read more about this drug and its potential side effects that balloon of hope began to deflate. Here are just some of the side effects that were listed. Nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and constipation just for starters. Then it listed some of the more serious potential side effects like pancreatitis and kidney failure.
Well, needless to say, I did NOT choose this route as my weight loss solution. A year later I found Marcelle and the Drop 20 program, and I want to say that the three big game changers for me were the homeopathic drops, the training on the adrenal glands and the DNA testing. In the past when I was on the HCG injections, though they did help to reset my metabolism and they did help me not to feel hungry, they never helped with my cravings. On THIS program I am NEVER hungry, and I don’t crave some of the favorite foods that you have to set aside during the six weeks and perhaps beyond. I have energy again. I no longer require a sleep aid. I no longer require CBD for anxiety and I’m up at 6:00 AM to get in a 3 mile walk with my walking buddy. And because I have the DNA results I now have a plan moving forward to keep the weight off.
Though I haven’t quite achieved my 20lb goal…I’m at 18.5 I’m thrilled with the results. I plan to take my month off and then do a second round as my goal is to lose all 40 pounds that my body doesn’t deserve to carry around. This morning I woke up and my body, in all its wonder, was saying, “Thank you losing the weight and not predisposing me to a heart attack, a stroke, cancer, diabetes, joint and skeletal failures and many, many other things. Thank you for taking care of me so that I can take care of you.”
There is one more part to this story that I want you all to know. As I said I rejected the plan my PCP offered. I understand that she was sharing with me what she believed to be best practices based upon the information that was available to her at the time, but the harsh reality is that many of the women across the United States that opted to use Ozempic or Wegovy as their weight loss solution have experienced gastroparesis. This is a disorder that stops or slows the digestion and movement of food through the GI tract so that it putrefies in the stomach, and these women had no remedy but to throw it up. They lost the weight, but at what cost? The scariest part is that even after stopping the medication many of these women are still experiencing these horrific side effects.
Marcelle, thank you for developing a safe, lifetime method for weight loss that is not only safe, but has enhanced my life.
