When I heard about the 10 Day Weight Loss Challenge, I wasn't sure if it would be a good fit, since as a physician, I understand nutrition and health (and therefore knew the dangers of fad diets, etc...), and I do my best to exercise (though not always enough).
But as a single mother of 2, it's still very challenging ti "fit in all in" (including cooking healthy meals for my children) due to my busy schedule. And when my time is short, bad habits crop up and weight gain follows.
So I was seeking a solution to realistically change some habits that I could adhere to in the long run - and that wouldn't disappear during the busier times and cause me to gain weight.
When I saw that the Challenge was geared specifically towards Busy Moms, (including our unique time constraints!) I decided to take the plunge.
I'm thrilled I did! Lisa's passion to help Busy Moms lose weight and keep it off shines through every detail of her program. She really "walks the walk" in terms of he support, always replying to my many questions with care, knowledge, and compassion (and she also replies EXTREMELY quick).
She recognizes that everyone is different, therefore has to find "their own way" to long-term weight loss. So her flexible and realistic program enabled me to do just that.
Her healthy recipesare absolutely wonderful, but the bonus was saving me about 20-30 minutes per night, not only because they're super easy, but I cook one dish for all of us because my kids love them!
Also the online meal planning software saved me even more time by creating shopping list... and even letting me customize the recipes to just 3 servings (which you never see as the standard serving size!).
I didn't need to lose a lot of weight, but I've Lost A Total Of 5 Pounds So Far (2 Pounds During The 10 Day Challenge And 3 More Pounds Since).
But for me, it was as much about saving time, learning new weight loss strategies (and quick/healthy recipes), and changing my lifestyle in a realistic way that would stand the test of time.
But also it does feel very empowering that I now have the confidence that I won't gain back the weight because my healthy lifestyle fits so well into busy schedule.
I'm now enjoying more time with my kids at meal-time because I'm not hovering over the stove for so long.
Thanks Lisa - you are awesome and I'm couldn't be happier that I discovered your program!
