The next story in our Motivational Monday Series is the tale of Carole Branning from Pleasant Mount, Pa.
As a coffee shop owner, Carole’s around food all the time. And stress? She’s got a whole mess of it.
Running her own business? Yup.
Going through a divorce? Yup.
Child leaving for college? Yup. She’s got that, too.
Not the ideal time to try to take the weight off.
Stress keeps a lot of our customers from reaching the weight they want. Had a bad day at work? That giant plate of pasta looks good. Kids giving you trouble? Bury yourself in a bowl of ice cream.
But Carole decided it was time to wade back into the dating pool. So the extra 20 pounds that had crept up on her over the years HAD to come off.
Stress or no stress.
She tried on her own, but the weight wouldn’t budge. No matter how hard she tried.
But once Weight Loss Formula No. 1 was on board, the scale finally began to move.
“I started to pay attention to the carbs,” she says. “And WLF1 curbed my appetite for the fun stuff I’d been eating, like chips and sweets.”
Even better? The chaos that surrounded her life didn’t seem to bother her as much.
I credit that to an ingredient in WLF1 called Rhodiola. It’s a natural adaptogen that not only helps strengthen the body’s response to stress, but that also reduces anxiety and promotes restful sleep.
Yes, it’s been clinically shown to help fortify the body’s response to stress, reduce anxiety and tension and promote emotional well-being.
Carole felt the benefit full force.
“I handled the stress of business ownership, college-bound child and a divorce better than I would have ever thought.”
But then? She got a little TOO confident.
“I thought my weight loss was due to my own efforts, and I got off RealDose for awhile.”
It turned out that for Carol, she still needed the support.
The cravings came right back, and the weight loss hit a brick wall. “RealDose was helping way more than I had given it credit for.”
Once back on the program, she reached her goal.
“Getting in shape, feeling great and looking good in my new jeans makes me a RealDose believer.”
Welcome to the club, Carole!
And thanks for showing all of us that even under the most stressful of times, it’s still possible to lose.
Here’s to your good health!
