Find Your Why For Your Health Journey - THE FEEL GREAT SYSTEMSep 09, 2021
I've been with Unicity since 2009, but I actually was introduced to Balance in 2008 and started taking it. Balance changed my life. I've lost a hundred pounds, through Unicity, through Balance.
But I don't want to talk about the weight loss story.
I want to talk about the motivation, my personal story behind that. What drove me to keep doing this all these years.
When my Dad was 52 years old, he had a massive heart attack. I was in my early twenties. He had a massive heart attack and his arteries were 80% clogged. My Dad died at 66 of prostate cancer. So from age 52 to 66, it was chronic disease, drugs, doctor's appointments, radiation, surgery. He went through a lot and it was cancer that ended up taking him out, even though he had heart disease. That was when he was 66.
When my Mom was 69, she passed away of heart disease. Mom died when I was 41 years old.
I was always scared to turn 50, with the thought of chronic disease and seeing what my dad went through. That was my motivator to really look after my health. I wanted to change that pattern that I was falling into.
That was a time when I was a hundred pounds overweight. That was when I started on my Balance journey.
I turn 52 in a couple of weeks, and I'm not scared to be 50 anymore. I'm actually enjoying it. These are the best years of my life. I'm in the healthiest I've ever been in my entire life. I feel great. I got all kinds of energy and this product changed everything for me.
It's not necessarily about the weight loss. It's what is behind that, what motivates us. My parents left early, but they gave me a gift and the gift was “don't be like us”.
You can do this.
I've never been more excited today than ever. I'm really going to celebrate my birthday this year. And I'm going to think a lot about my dad through my year of 52.
