I want everyone on meet Linda! She’s a DAMY Method Member. Linda is wonderful in many ways but what really stands out to me is her ability to be completely honest. I really admire this about Linda. When she first came to me she had somewhat of a negative view of weight loss and health (understandably – she had been let down by many fad diets). She now is encouraging, upbeat, and positive! She’s actually a motivator to others on the team. Sure she has her bad days and she’s honest enough to talk about them but the difference is her bad days aren’t terrible and she has more great days than anything else. I love having Linda on the team. She makes me laugh almost everyday and seeing her success has brought me so much joy.
I’m so happy for you Linda. I know you will do anything you put your mind to. Thank you for sharing your story and experience.
Please take the time to read Linda’s experience and enjoy her before and after success pictures.
Linda’s DAMY Method Success Story
I am a 43 year old mother of a 7 year old girl… she is full of fun and energy. I work 32-40 hrs a week… sometimes it’s pretty hectic. My weight has been a constant battle for years. I’ve tried all kinds of weird diets even the cabbage soup diet where I thought I was going to starve to death. I had put 20lbs back on in a two year period. I am a compulsive eater, I eat with my emotions all the time. I used to stuff myself with junk when I was sad, angry or bored. I used to eat for no reason and everything I ate was sugary crap. I felt like crap all the time, I was in a brain fog and sluggish. I needed to take stomach pills on a regular basis, everything hurt. It near took all my breath to climb the stairs at work. It felt like I was carrying a ton of bricks on my back. I couldn’t get down on the floor and play with my little girl my hips would hurt so bad.
My AH HA moment happened one night I was going up the stairs half out of breath. We have a small nightlight plugged into the wall in the hallway. I saw my shadow on the wall and thought good God is that my butt… am I really that wide? I sure was. Nothing fit anymore and what did, well, lets just say it wasn’t pretty. I wouldn’t even go to my work Christmas party because I hated the way I looked. I felt so awful.
I knew it was time to do something. January 1st I joined a Facebook group with a great bunch of women who were all fighting the same battle. I started to lose weight. I gave up junk food but it was so hard. I would lose weight one week and then have a gain the next. It was such a struggle and I needed help… I needed structure.
One day I clicked on the DAMY Health link on a friends Facebook wall. I had heard how awesome it was from a friend who had done it and had lost 75lbs. I thought, “what do I have to lose?” I opened the page and there was Amy’s beautiful smile :). She was going to help me! I read her info and it sounded like something I could do… “EAT CLEAN.” I love fruit and veggies and I knew I could eat five times a day no problem.
I signed up for the DAMY Method Program. The first week was a bit overwhelming but Amy was there to help me every step of the way. I knew I could do this. When I got on schedule the weight seemed to melt right off. In less than four months I lost what took two years to put on. I didn’t even mind the exercises. Once I got started it felt so good I couldn’t wait to do them again.
I really enjoy the whole concept. I plan my meals in advance and chose what I want to eat. If I don’t like it I don’t eat it. There is lots to eat and you can mix it up. She gives you wonderful recipes and sometimes I doctor them to my taste (in a healthy way of course). My friends at work laugh because I can stuff so many little containers and fruit into one lunch bag. One lady wanted me to go home and cook for her because some meals smell so good. I never feel hungry and haven’t had to take a stomach pill in months.
When I stumble Amy is there to pick me back up. She is awesome. My mind is no longer foggy, I am full of energy, and taking the stairs at work isn’t a challenge anymore (I can run up them!). I can get down on the floor and play with my little girl and get back up with no popping hips. God, I can even jog, it’s not pretty but I can do it. I basically feel great. My clothes all fit me again and some are even too big :). I lost 20lbs, 6″ off my waist, 3″ off my hips and I am back into my size 8 jeans. I can’t wait for summer I won’t be embarrassed about the way I look and hiding in sweats.
Without this program I would have lost the battle. I now know that I have to stay on track so I don’t go back to where I was before. It’s not a boring diet if a fun change of life. There are lots of great meal ideas and tips. Amy is upbeat and has such energy she keeps me on track. On the days I stumble I can now get back up and keep on going.
This program is just what I needed to get my head on straight and out of the fog. Amy and her DAMY Method Program has helped me get clean. I have to stay Clean 🙂
Thank you so much for all you have done for me and everyone else 🙂
