Shelly's Story!

"At the age of 23, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).  It is an endocrine disorder that wreaks havoc in the body: weight gain, infertility, insomnia, migraines, fatigue, skin and hair issues, and multiple cysts grow on the ovaries.  I went from being thin, fit, and full of energy to overweight, bad skin, and tired all the time.  Working out, dieting, and vitamins made little difference.  I went from a size 2 to a size 24.


Over the years I continued exercising and trying different diets but nothing worked.  At the age of 31 I started early menopause.  To prevent other serious health issues that were beginning to take hold I had a full hysterectomy to remove everything, including my ovaries.  After the surgery I felt great and a lot of my other symptoms started to disappear or decrease.  That is, except for the weight.  In spite of working out all the time I wasn’t gaining but I wasn’t losing.  It was beyond frustrating. 


After turning 33 and still seeing no change, I noticed multiple friends literally shrinking right before my eyes.   I decided I had to try whatever fad diet they were on.  However, I discovered they weren’t on a fad diet, eating expensive prepackaged meals, or going to bed hungry every night.  They were doing Bella Nutra.  My husband and I prayed about it, called, signed up, and I began my journey towards a thinner and healthier me!


To my surprise I immediately started seeing a difference, but not in the way that I thought I would.  I was losing on the scale, but it was slow.  I was constantly pushing through plateaus.  The biggest change was the inches lost.  The inches were falling off of me so quickly that I was constantly buying smaller and smaller clothes.  In total, I lost 42.5 inches off of my entire body and 28.2 pounds.  I went from a size 24 to a size 14 in twelve weeks!  There was also an additional 10 pounds I lost right before officially starting the program just by implementing some tips Lisa told me about when I first called.  That’s a total of 38.2 pounds!  Even my husband lost 18 pounds just by eating what I cooked.  Everything that I was eating seemed to aid the effectiveness of the hormones I was taking to deal with any lingering PCOS symptoms.


My mentor, Lisa, gave me such a wealth of knowledge about which foods were best for my body and tips on what to do to get through plateaus.  She has been such a source of encouragement and support for me and I thank God every day that I have had the privilege of knowing and working with her.  Bella Nutra is truly an answer to a prayer that I have prayed for 10 years.


I am not finished with my weight loss journey but I know with the nutrition education I received from Lisa, I will reach my goal weight very soon.  More importantly than the weight loss, is the energy I now have to do the things God has called me to do with my life.  By eating the Bella Nutra way for life, I am taking care of my body so I have the ability to care for my family and the people God has called me to serve.  To God be the glory!"
