I have carried this weight for 18 years; 60% of it is from two years of prednisone, which caused the pounds to come on daily. After getting off the steroids, I tried to lose the weight by every method available. I tried alternative products, every diet out there, medical doctors and at one point an MD explained to me that taking steroids had such a profound effect on fat cells that it was like putting the fat in a time capsule and sealing it for the next twenty years. He actually said I may never lose the excess weight, but I did not buy it and kept on trying to lose this weight. I would lose 5 and gain 7; lose 7 and gain 5. The other movie I have replayed for 12 years is tax season; I sit approximately 70 hours a week doing taxes from January through April 15. I have always gained weight during tax season and my ankles would swell horribly from the sitting and the stress. Then tax season would end and in May, I would start the process of trying to lose the weight. I gained the last 4 months and the only good news is that I maintained the same weight year after year with this merry go round I have been on. Now fast-forward to this tax season. I have lost every week, I feel so much less stressed and I have no swollen ankles. My skin is clear, my eyes are clear (no redness from staring at a computer all day) and I feel good. I have to attribute all this to the weight loss products. I have eaten all the healthy foods before, I have restricted calories before and I have exercised before and only this time am I getting results. Thank you LIMU LEAN!
