Meet Barb, Who Lost 12 Pounds and Says Joining Challenge Was Best Decision Ever!

Hello! I’m Barb, a 61-year-old wife and mother of two sons. My husband and I are empty-nesters and live in the state of Indiana. We enjoy hiking, attending live musical performances, bird watching and gardening. I work full-time as a geriatric physical therapist.

I’ve always liked to cook and have eaten relatively healthily all my life. By that I mean, cooking most of our meals at home, no fried foods and only a rare fast food meal.  I found CFC on Facebook several years ago and really enjoyed the recipes.

I’ve been overweight most of my adult life.

I  was successful in the past following a popular weight-loss program losing over 50 pounds and reaching my goal weight (for the second time) in 2020. It felt amazing! I learned portion control and that consistency is key. HOWEVER, I was still eating empty carbs, not enough protein, and hadn’t learned to curb stress eating especially late in the afternoon. Gradually, over the next year and a half, I put 20 pounds back on.

I tried CFC’s 7-Day Detox plan and really loved the food it included.

In September 2022 I took the plunge and signed up for the 30-Day Clean Eating Challenge.

BEST DECISION EVER!

In 30 Days:

➡️ I lost 7 pounds and several inches off my waist, thighs and buttocks!

➡️ I felt in control of my eating. 

➡️ No more late afternoon “hangries”.

In just a short time I learned to:

  • Eat more protein
  • Eat nutrient-dense foods 
  • Eat more often
  • Plan and prep

It was like magic. I felt my entire body de-bloat.

➡️ I’ve been following the Challenge Plan for three months and I’ve lost 12 pounds.

➡️ Historically I don’t lose weight quickly, but this has been so easy and with consistent losses every week.

➡️ My clothes fit better.

➡️ I have energy all day.

➡️ I can honestly say I’m happier!

It’s me! After ❤️

One of the most important things I’ve learned is you’ve got to define your WHY.

For me, it’s because:

✅ I don’t want to become diabetic.

✅ I have a strong family history of diabetes and heart disease.

✅ I want to age gracefully and stay active.

✅ I want to feel confident in my appearance and feel good in my clothes.

I quickly signed up for the Annual Membership and haven’t looked back.

I have gained a wonderful support group of like-minded people who are also trying to be the healthiest version of themselves. I love the inspiring recipes like the roasted ranch cauliflower and the Tuscan soup.

It’s not about trying to “cheat“ the system by eating low-calorie substitutions filled with chemicals and artificial sweeteners. It’s about learning how to fuel your body with nutrition and keeping it simple while still being able to incorporate tasty whole-food treats. 

I love the 30-Day Challenge and you will too! Search for your WHY and commit.

Try the Challenge. Be consistent and watch what happens!

– Barb
