Since I have started the site One Retail Therapy and the blog Retail Annie, I decided to begin trying the products to make sure I want them on the site. For me with chronic acute asthma, exercise can be difficult at times and all I can do is gentle yoga poses. Well, with my 55th birthday coming up, I am over weight with high blood pressure and cholesterol. Dropping 20 lbs would be ideal for me. So I went to my IDEAL SHAPE AFFILIATE, and have started drinking their shakes. They are yummy!
I have tried some of the other weight loss companies “craving buster” shakes and they literally gag me. The overload of artificial sweetener taste lingered in my mouth. And, because of the amount of artificial sweetener they use, I ended up with stomach cramps. Which made my ulcerative colitis pretty mad.
Maybe I better back up and explain a few things. For the past 25 years I have had an auto immune disease called Wegeners or GPA. I was only diagnosed approximately 15 years ago. This disease causes other diseases in your body to develop through inflammation. So, I have chronic acute Asthma, Wegeners, Lupus, Ulcerative Colitis, and Arthritis in my hands and feet. My nose structure is now one of my rib bones, built because of the deterioration of the tissue and bone, from before I was diagnosed. So I am not so sure about taking a before picture for you, but I will try to find the courage.
After hearing of the treatments for Wegeners, I decided to embark on my own path. I now combine Western, Eastern, and Homeopathy, and it works for me. As you can imagine, trying anything new for me is always questionable. Which translates into I am even more skeptical than the skeptics!
When Ideal Shape became one of the stores on One Retail Therapy, I started reading and studying them. I like Lindsey and how she approaches weight loss and health. The more I read from her, the more I am impressed. So I finally decided to start with her shakes, figuring it would be the true test with just one taste for me. To my own surprise they were delicious! And my ulcerative colitis even likes them.
I have started Ideal Shape’s program slowly, with one shake at lunch. No hunger pangs or cravings of any kind. When it is time for dinner, I have noticed that my portions are smaller and I am satisfied. Oh yes, the most important part, I am losing weight.
So if you are looking for a way to lose weight and start getting healthy again, I whole heartedly recommend Ideal Shape!
