End the Crash & BurnClient Guest Blog: from Sarah Olney, a fellow 4Networking colleague who has been 'Gailed'
Yet another cycle of crash and burn, repair and then despair. As you get older you realise that your personal history is repetitive and eventually you realise that if you want something different, you have to do things differently! So the weight had piled on again, yet another disastrous man had come and gone and yet, this time, it was different! I realised that all those years of struggling with weight and depression had taken its toll and each cycle resulted in yet another couple of stone going on! Yes, seriously and now, looking in the mirror, I didn’t even recognise myself as my face had gone all puffy from consuming a bottle of wine a day at one stage.
Although desperately miserable, I was still keeping the world at bay, although it wasn’t as extreme as it had been in the past and, thanks to networking, I felt a bit more relaxed and open and knew I needed help.
When I first met the beautiful Gail Lummis, I thought oh my god she can’t possibly want to be friends with me and then I heard her own story which resonated with much of my own. In time, I learned to trust and went for a screening. At the point at which she said I had to step on the scales, I was visibly in tears yet I did know that this self-awareness and acceptance was the first step on the road to recovery. I got on, it was nearly as bad as it had ever been at my lowest point in the past but at least I had stopped the rot as I am sure I would have ended up even fatter than I had ever been if I hadn’t got help at this juncture.
Gail patiently explained what to do and made sure I understood the issues to do with spiking the insulin levels, the problems with caffeine and certain fruits and the effect that dairy and gluten has on your system, and I felt I could cope with it very well. I can honestly say I have never felt better, not just externally but internally, much calmer, happier and positive and optimistic. This is quite a turnaround.
I stress, for anyone who says you are greedy or lack discipline, you’ll understand that it’s to do with body types and food types and how your body copes with insulin. Gail’s 'Vantage Protocol' which she developed with the use of her health screening system, counter-balances this and enables the body to disperse the adipose fat without you losing muscle tone and remaining healthy and fit.
It’s a truly remarkable plan and every time I see someone in the street who I can see suffers from the same thing now, I want to shout: “let me help you!” because believe me I know just how miserable and soul-destroying it is to spend your life yo-yo dieting and being fat. And now I know you don’t have to!
If you know someone who suffers with Yo Yo dieting, tell them about the Gail as it will change their life!
