My Clean Kitchen experience has been eye opening. And I lost 32 pounds because I decided to finally sign up!
Since 2004 when I graduated high school I have slowly gained weight. Honestly, it’s deceiving because it just happened so slowly. The thought ‘I’m not that bad’ was constantly coming in my mind as I would look at myself in the mirror. Then things like high cholesterol happened and made me think, “What am I doing to myself and my family?”
I knew I needed to make changes. So I tried on my own. Six months came, then a year, and no real change.
I was still relying on a pill to save my life. Still rolling through the same drive through and getting the same combo meal because it’s quick, easy, and honestly it just tasted good.
What Clean Kitchen did for me is changed my mindset of food and through the 12 weeks my tastebuds changed. I enjoy eating what is a healthier choice now. I broke the addiction of sugar, bad fats, and bad carbs. Now don’t get me wrong I still get those cravings but I view them differently. I now view them for what they are doing to my body.
Someone has already asked me, “What are you going to eat now that the challenge is over?” I’m going to continue following the habits since this my lifestyle now, but I am going to start adding in strength training. I can't wait to see what the next phase in my journey brings!
