My journey with SHAPE ReClaimed, which started 6 months ago, did not originate with the desire to lose weight. While that desire had been lifelong, it was pain that pushed my hand at trying this program.

I’m a 39-year old mother of 3 young children. I was exhausted, overwhelmed and struggling with a lot of random joint pain and various other complaints and discomforts. To say I was skeptical would be an understatement. Luckily my desperation outweighed my skepticism.

The gifts I have received from this program transformed my health in a way I could have never expected. My joint pain vanished shortly after starting the program. My “bad” back improved drastically. My SHAPE practitioner discovered a gallbladder issue, which is now resolved. My 2 ½-year battle with severe plantar fasciitis was gone within 6 weeks! My energy levels jumped. My irregular, intensely painful cycles are now regular and almost cramp free. My breast cancer risk has dropped. And I enjoy playing with my kids again. There were so many issues that I thought were “just the way my body was” that disappeared or improved: bloating, severely dry and cracked skin, aches and pains, fatigue, headaches, mood swings and skin irritations.

To call the SHAPE Program a weight loss program does a great injustice. Beyond all the physical benefits, the SHAPE Program has made me aware of key essentials to maintaining my health: how to read cues my body gives me, when to address symptoms resulting from an imbalance or intolerance and what “feeling good” can actually feel like, to name a few. Of course, I’m thrilled with the 58 pounds and almost 50 inches shed during this process. I’ve gone from a size 20/XL to a 12/M-L and from surviving to actually living again. To say I am grateful would now be an understatement!

Thank you for the opportunity to share my story and encourage others.
