Seeing Is Believing

If it looks too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true. 


I’m a bit of a skeptic. I question everything until I can prove it myself. 

Guess that makes me more than “a bit”, doesn’t it?

Anything that is advertised as a money back guarantee, isn’t high-quality. If it were, they wouldn’t need to guarantee it, right?

You see where I’m going with this. 

Could it really be as simple as 3 products, 3 changes, and 3 months?

Of course not! 

But what if it IS?!?!

What if the results are real and you’re wasting time debating whether you can take a chance again? What if you do the program and only lose half as much weight as everyone else? What if you find healthy eating habits but lose no weight? 


Is it worth the chance?

I followed my Healthy Investment Advice. I went for it. I bought the 3 products. I chose 3 challenges: 7500 steps per day, drink ?, and no white stuff (sugar or flour). And I crossed my fingers for 3 months. 

That first month brought energy, motivation, and a reduced amount of sugar cravings.  Energy. As in not only did I make it through the school day, but I had energy left over for me!

My step count quickly increased. 7500 wasn’t enough to push me. I raised it to 10,000. 

I bought a cup with a diffuser and a straw to help with the ? consumption. I soon found myself drinking right at a gallon of water a day.

And I stuck closely to my Mediterranean eating plan. 


Easy. 

I hate to say it, but it’s true. 

I made no large scale changes. I made small changes with big impacts. 

10 pounds a month worth of impact. 

Is it more than I ever thought I’d spend to get healthy? Yup. But it’s worth double every penny!

  • I recently had to change my eating habits. Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and hypertension plus borderline kidney and liver function, at the age of 55 I had sleepwalked my way towards a coronary or a stroke. Not to mention the problems with vision, circulation and daily exhaustion. Cutting carbs has been my saviour and has got all my vital signs back on track and I have lost 3 stone since 1st April. Most definitely worth the effort! Good luck with your challenges 🙂

    • Janice,
      That’s awesome progress! Carbs are so addictive. I almost miss pasta and rolls more than sugary drinks and desserts. Our eating habits control so much of our health. Awesome what just a few changes can do for us.

  • Such true advice. It’s taken me almost a year to lose 20 pounds and I can feel myself slipping. This is just the motivation I need to remember not to go back on my small changes. My changes were: weigh every day to make sure I stay on track, track what I eat even if it’s not great, and just not quit. That’s it. There are other small things, but these are the big things. I’ve screwed up along the way but never quit. It’s totally a mind game. I wholeheartedly agree!

    • Jill,
      Thanks for dropping in! I’m also doing 3 challenges: no sugary drinks, 7500 steps a day, and no white stuff (sugar/flour). I’m doing them as part of a system with supplements. Together the change is crazy!

  • I think small changes can really work bit only if you’re truly committed to the changes! I like the blog – it was intriguing to find out what you thought of your changes. Nice work!

  • I have made a lot of healthy changes in my eating, but my laziness often gets the best of me and I eat something I shouldn’t because I’m out of fresh fruits or my preferred veggies. I try to eat mostly whole foods in their natural form, though I do cook some things. My downfall is wanting something sweet and crunchy as a night snack, and I really enjoy a piece of sourdough toast with my salad at lunch. Sometimes I have it. I’m still losing some weight, but not as much as I used to.

  • Nice job, Carrie! It is the smallest changes that sometimes has the greatest impact. In the end, there are not such small changes. It does require clarity and persistence. Thanks for sharing!

    • Ginette,

      We tend to get overwhelmed when we look at large scale changes. Like the fact I need to lose 60+ pounds..that’s huge. I know that can’t happen overnight. I also know losing 10 pounds is much more possible. So that’s what I focus on.
