I have so much enthusiasm about this program - I just hope it comes through in this testimonial!
We had some holiday photos taken in December 2007. They say a picture is worth a thousand words; well our photo said "get in shape and lose weight"! I felt like my clothes were always tight. I was going back and forth between two sizes and I just wanted to be at one size and lose 10 pounds. My husband wanted to lose at least 40 pounds. He was wearing a sleep apnea machine and getting out of breath while doing only a little activity.
I talked with the team at Target Metabolism and went ahead and set an appointment up for both of us. We struggled at first with adjusting to our target calories to eat to lose weight from fat. We measured and began journaling our food and it became easier to adjust to the target calories. I actually realized I was eating more now than I did before I was losing weight! We learned that journaling is a must - it keeps you responsible and disciplined on what you eat. The change definitely takes some work, but it is worth it!
By June 2008, Steve had lost 41.5 pounds and went down to a size 36 jeans; he was wearing a size 40 jeans! His shirts went from a 3XL to an XXL to an XL! I lost 12.5 pounds and dropped 3 pant sizes!
This program works! People ask me if I have to eat a special food. Target Metabolism is a teaching facility. They teach you how to manage the food you eat every day. There is no special food, shake, or pill! Within a couple of months I realized this is not a diet - it is a change in attitude and a way of life! We learned how to count calories and adjust our portions so we could lose weight --- and again we ate normal, everyday foods! Some "diet" programs have you eat their pre-packaged boxed foods. I have seen people do this and then not know how to eat after their pre-packaged "diet" ends. Other programs also weigh clients weekly on a scale and then just adjust the pre-packaged foods. At Target Metabolism, you are weighed - but the focus is on overall fat pounds. When you eat properly according to what your metabolism needs, you lose fat!
I'm very happy that my husband and I did this program. We highly recommend other couples do this program. But if you are doing this by yourself, you are not alone - The wonderful staff at Target Metabolism is with you every step of the way!
I have never believed in anything as much as I do about Target Metabolism and what they offer. My husband and I graduated from ClubMET in June, and it is so east to maintain the weight loss! In the 6 months of the program, we established new habits that we will maintain for life! And by the way, the massages were great!!
Thank you very much to the wonderful staff! We love your enthusiasm and support!
