Everyday, every season, every year. I would just get heavier and heavier. I blamed my metabolism, menopause, being too busy to do anything about it. Over the years I tried more fade diets that I can count. They worked for a while and then they stop working and weight just went back on plus more each time. I finally gave up. I figured this is just what it was...genetics. This was how it was and there was nothing I could do about it. I would never recognize myself again. Then one day I saw friend who is looking different. She was losing weight and looked fantastic! I asked her "what did you do?" She told me about Abby and The Tree of Life Wellness Center. I still wasn't convinced. But her story stayed with me in the back of my mind until one day I decided... I was ready to try one last program. I went in for a consultation and put myself in Abbys care. She did not disappoint. Having to be accountable daily and her weekly in person check ins were my key to success. Abby truly cares about teaching you how to eat correctly, portion control and how to get your metabolism moving again. I have been on this weight loss journey for my whole life but I have learned more from Activate Metabolics in the last 6 months than I had learned in the last 40 years of dieting. This is a lifestyle that is liveable. At this point in my journey I have lost 52 pounds and have another 8 to go to hit my goal. I have no doubt that I will be able to achieve this goal. It is such a wonderful thing to look in a mirror and recognize myself again. Thank you Abby and Tree of Life!
I started my journey with Abby 6 months ago after a few wake up calls. Prior to that I was no stranger to healthy food and didn’t feel as though I over indulged in bad food. I had a list a mile long of health problems. Including: migraines, heart palpitations, bladder and yeast infections, arthritis in my fingers, aching joints, fatigue, insomnia, depression, acid reflux, no energy, mental fog and lots of muscle problems. I’ve been in and out of doctors trying to figure out was was wrong with me for the last 10 years. I am 37 now and for the last 10 years I have had less energy than my mother who is 36 years older than me. When I started I was obese, unhappy and desperately wanted to change to set an example for my 5 daughters. I was nervous to start but took the plunge and I couldn’t be happier with my results. In 6 months I lost 56 pounds. Went from a XXL to a medium. Lost about 95% of all the ailments listed above and more that I’ve forgotten about. I feel full and nourished after I eat and enjoy food more now than ever. I love that it wasn’t just a diet. That I truly learned how to eat to fuel my body for life, which is the purpose of eating anyways! I am so proud of myself and grateful for Abby and this opportunity and I’ve moved into the cool mom category with my daughters and not only can I run circles around my mother but i can run circles around my daughters too...well, some of them!
When I first connected with Abby. It was looking for someone to just tell me what to do. Along with running a business, I have three children (and a husband who is also now going through the program), and I was tired of thinking. I didn’t mind cooking or preparing meals, I was just not having a good time thinking about and planning what to eat. After meeting with Abby, the plan was all laid out for me- no brainer, sign me up! The plan is literally back to basics, the first 41 days are “easy” –don’t get me wrong, they take planning and prep. With the guidance offered, my weeks were set up easily.
Another factor in my reaching out to Abby, was me looking for a program that used real food. I’d found myself eating and utilizing lots of protein shakes, bars, convenience “healthy” snacks (all processed). I wanted out of that cycle. Real food is the way to go! Incorporating DNA testing to know what my body wants to eat was also a must for me. Initially yes, there is food elimination, but I didn’t even realize it because I paid attention to what I was told to eat, and ate it (again, no thinking). We are told what to eat, and that was my focus vs. being told what not to eat.
Now, I did all the above, followed the program (truth be told, with a few cheat days and/ or weekends in there... Summer all!), with complete and utter skepticism – complete. I was losing weight during my first 41 days, lost a bit of weight when I moved to maintenance, lost more weight during another 41days, and continued to lose weight until my 6 months were done. Mind you that was done with lots of talks with Abby about my body, a few plateaus some gain here and there, but the whole while learning about me and how my body reacted to food and life all still total skepticism.
I started in May 2019 and completed the 6-month program. It’s now January 9 th, 2020 so, I’ve been living life knowing my DNA results for a few months though a family trip to Florida, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year! During those festive times, I made good and bad food choices (mostly good because I like how I feel then, but plenty of bad as well). I gained a few lbs sure did! In the past I would have thought... here we go what do I do now? Cut out carbs? Keto? Eat protein bars? Guess what? I didn’t have to think this time. I prepped and ate like my DNA told me to, and I’m right back to where I was at the end of my 6 months – 45 lbs. lighter than when I started.
I have struggled with my weight & health concerns for years. Having a hysterectomy before 30 has caused all sorts of complications with my hormones, metabolism, & thyroid health...and I have also suffered from GI complications over the past few years. I have tried every fad diet, new product, meal replacement shake out there. I have never found anything that truly helped me. I always start out feeling good and might loose a few pounds, but eventually I plateaued, get frustrated and just give up...not to mention, I usually feel drained and depleted.
I started this program the heaviest I have ever been, so not only did I want to loose weight, I had to make some life long changes. I have been so sick and run down this past year and not happy with myself. I looked in the mirror and didn't like what I saw; from my tired eyes, puffy face, back fat, and bloated belly. I knew it was time for something drastic to change in my life, so I can love me again. I have never in my life been so excited to jump in 100% and to make real life changes.
This program has been life changing for me, it has given me hope, encouragement, joy, and real results that last. I can't stop raving about how good I actually feel. Typically with any kind of cleanse or diet I've done in the past, I feel like I have the flu and run down. Not with this program, I feel great, tons of energy, zero cravings, and so much clarity...it's like a fog has been lifted. Not only did I drop over 20lbs in my first 6 weeks, but I have been able to keep it off and my body just keeps buring fat. Some weeks the scale might not move, but then I notice my clothes are looser, my face is clearer, and my hair is thicker and longer...I am constantly noticing non scale victories too! I wake up with so much energy, little appetite, and no more bloating and inflammation. I have learned to listen to my body, take care of me, and trust this process. Thank you Abby for helping me along the way and for believing in me.
My name is Bryan. Back in May I was talking to my son about my weight and I told him I would like to try to lose some weight, I have knee and hip pain, my blood pressure was going up and I was just feeling unhealthy. He recommended a program he knew of. He is a Chiropractor and he said he knew of a healthy program. He told me about Abby at Tree of Life Metabolic Weight Loss, I met with Abby and she explained the program and with her help I started on June 1st. I just finished my 2nd losing phase of the program and I have dropped 83 pounds! It works I am feeling much better with less pain and more energy. A big thank you to Abby for all of the help and support. These jeans are the ones I was wearing when I started. I would highly recommend this healthy program for anyone who wants to lose weight the healthy way.
In just 167 days I've dropped 47 pounds and 35 inches overall with the coaching, support, guidance, and motivation with Abby. It was easy as I was never physically hungry. I was given a healthy list of what to eat, vs a list of foods not to eat, which I really liked. My reason for starting the metabolic weight loss program was because of my high A1C. Amazing just five and half months later all my blood numbers (A1C, Cholesterol, etc) were in normal range now along with my joint pain going away. I also like the body composition analysis that is ran at my success visits, is has been a motivation for me that shows that I worked my way out of the "red zones" and getting that much closer to the green zones and my goal.
