This reminds me of my own cancer survival story. I was diagnosed with Small Cell Carcinoma in January 2010. I was given a 15% chance of survival. Instead of just accepting my fate, I decided that for whatever time I had left, that I would be the best me that I could. I was going to be Happy! If I were to leave this world, I wanted my friends and family to remember me as someone that kept a positive attitude and as someone that enjoyed life. Everyday that I went for my treatments I would make it my goal to make people smile and laugh. I refused to sit in a chair in the waiting room. I would walk laps around the entire floor. I would smile and talk to everyone. Not only did this make me happy but I think that I was able to bring a little joy to their lives, too!
I was so determined that I would not be sickly. I ate and ate and ate. I also started taking healthy supplements. I took CoQ10 and Odorless Garlic. I took Noni capsules and drank an ounce of wheat grass every day. I took Vitamins. Vitamin C, Vitamin B-Complex, Vitamin B-12. I also took Ginger supplements so that I would not feel nauseous. I started including loads of fresh tomatoes and spinach into my diet. I drank V-8. Basically, I was filling my body with everything that I thought was healthy. But I never gave up on my bad habits. I still drank my Diet Pepsi by the case. I still ate sweets. I still did all of the things that I should not have.
By the time I had finished all of my treatments (about 8 months later), I had gained about 40 lbs. I was cancer free and fat! I would go for my checkups and the Dr. would say things like " You know that the cancer is usually back by now!" How do you respond to that? I would just smile and go celebrate by eating. Oh, I tried to lose some of that weight. But I just could not seem to pull myself out of this eating everything in sight cycle that I had put myself in!
September of 2013, I saw a before and after picture on Facebook. I looked at it and thought to myself..........Oh, yeah! What a scam! Sure that I would not get those same results. Well, I kept on seeing those ads and I kept watching for them. Guess they finally worked on me because I found myself ordering this stuff called Skinny Fiber. It is an all natural supplement. That was right up my alley! I began taking it on September 11, 2013. Imagine my surprise when I actually started losing that weight!
Here it is June 2014 and I have to tell you that I have lost 51 lbs. I feel fantastic! I went from a very tight size 16 to a size 6! I feel healthy and more like I did way before my cancer diagnosis. I am now also a distributor for Skinny Fiber. If you are looking to shed a few pounds .......please check out my website @www.getslimwithskinnyfiber.com
