I’ve been a member of Life Time Fitness since 2008. During 2008 and the beginning of 2014, I have always struggled with my weight. I worked out like crazy, but the weight wasn’t coming off. n January of 2014, my personal trainer said that she talked to the nutritionist and asked if she would be willing to have an education session for her clients. I thought about it and after a good debate with myself I decided to go. So, at the end of January I went to the education session and met the person that has changed my life (Jessica Janik).
After filling out a questionnaire and having Jessica review and very sympathetically understand my issues, I signed up for the Longevity & Vitality and Food Sensitivity lab assessments. After receiving the results, I was shocked by the results. High cholesterol (good cholesterol almost nonexistent), very low vitamin D levels, hemoglobin A1C high (increased risk of diabetes level), and my estrogen and progesterone levels weren’t in sync.
From the Food Sensitivity test I learned that I had a list of foods that my body does not like. My first meeting with Jessica after receiving the results was awesome. I went in there all stressed and she said, “Don’t worry about it. It can all be fixed. “
She had me do the D.TOX, taught me how to eat the right food and the right amounts, and advised appropriate supplementation. I used to think in order to lose weight you had to eat very little. Boy, was I wrong on that one! To date, I have lost 22 pounds and 9% body fat. I’ve reached my first goal in weight loss, and I’m working on my ultimate goal of an additional 5 pounds. My cholesterol, vitamin D, sex hormones, and hemoglobin A1C levels have all improved.
When people ask me if I’m still on my diet I say no. I’ve made a lifestyle change, and I feel GREAT!!!!
There are no words to express how thankful I am that Jessica has come into my life.
