My name is Jamie Nicks and a few weeks ago I was able to do something that I have been embarrassed of doing in a very long time… wear a stylish bikini that I adored! For so many years before, I would never be able to wear the one that I wanted to wear.
It all started when I gave birth to our second child. So much went wrong and for months after she was born I was holed up in a hospital bed just piling on pound after pound. I whirlwinded into a weight-gaining frenzy that just wouldn’t end. I ended up in jeans six sizes larger than my pre-pregnancy days!
I felt horrible and my self-confidence took a nose dive – even if my hubby was constantly telling me how great I looked and how sexy I was… “yea right” is the only thing that would cross my mind. In fact, I’d get upset with him cause I knew he was just saying it.
My sister noticed how it was getting it to me last year when she visited and told me that I should try acai berry. I had vaguely heard of it, but I’ve never been one just to run out and try the latest and greatest thing. My hubby had recently planned a getaway for us though and I wanted to look good and be able to enjoy myself, so I thought why not? I ordered it the next day.
Within weeks, things were looking great. My clothes were starting to fit a bit loose and the scale was being nice again! It didn’t take long before I had to buy new clothes… just in time for our get away! I loved the way I was looking and feeling. The weight has never come back and I feel just as good as I did when I was 20… and my bathing suit choice shows it!
If you really are in a rut and think there’s no way out, trust me, there is. Just give it a try. If I can do it, feeling the way I was feeling then I strongly believe that anyone out there can do it.
