From the time I was small, I have had an eating disorder. I did not know it was called that. By age 6, my mother was driving me to the pediatrician twice a week for what was called Scratch Tests. I had several tests each week to determine the foods I was allergic to, which turned out to be almost anything good.
By the time I was in 8th grade, my weight was higher than it had ever been. I was bullied in
grammar school and Junior High for being chubby, fat, overweight, the one with the pretty face but, unable to fit in normal clothes like the others, etc. Shame, humiliation, introversion and withdrawal became my life.
For years I stayed thin through diet pills and exercise. I did what I could to hide my food cravings so I would look good. I hid my pain, ate secretly and stuffed emotions. But stayed thin, studied health and looked for answers. I enrolled in every diet club in town from drinking protein to weighing and measuring food. I was ok as long as I did not eat flour or sugar products. At one point I lost a tremendous amount of weight only to gain it back again. By 2005, I was 245 pounds, out of control and depressed, hopeless and ashamed.
By 2007, I released the sugar and flour, dropped 75 pounds and have maintained it more or less since then. I have body dysmorphia, and do not see myself as others. I have had trainers working me out 3x weekly, done yoga, pilates, running, zumba and swimming. There were times I would work out but my body never changed. I’d be obsessed to look like ‘her’, ‘them’, to prove to the bullies I was ok. It finally came down to self-acceptance, my trigger foods to avoid and to be who I am.
In 2017, I was feeling frustrated again. Then came the Strawberry Laser Lipo! I had tried another laser lipo procedure using LED light which penetrates the skin with an overhead light. For a lot of money, I had very poor results. I researched various methods and discovered the Strawberry. What I liked about Strawberry Laser Lipo is the laser is applied to the skin, directly attacks the fat cell, the lymph carries the fat to the kidneys and the fat is excreted. In just 9 20-minute sessions, I lost a cumulative 21 inches . I was so excited and amazed, I considered my education, experiences in health professionally and personally and integrated all my years. I decided to train and become a specialist with the Strawberry. I could continue helping others.
I understand our food issues, emotional eating, food addiction, body images, hard work with exercise, the endorphine rushes and compliments from everyone. I know surgery is painful and there can be errors. Not everyone can afford a plastic surgeon or wants surgery. With time and patience, Strawberry Laser Lipo will transform your body and help eliminate the fat. it’s spectacular, safe and a miracle.
I enjoy working with patients and watching them blossom. The results will vary but if you work with me to alter your diet, add some exercise, the Strawberry Laser will remove inches each time you are treated. Your skin will tighten and your form will improve.
I am living testimony and now I share it with you. Call me to set up your appointment.
I’m here to help you inch your way to a better you.
