It’s been almost a year since my last update and a lot of people are asking if I have kept the weight off that I lost while using the Roca Labs formula. I see many blogs and videos out there of people who are using Roca Labs, but I haven’t seen many stating if they have kept the weight off so I decided to keep my followers informed on my personal journey.
There are 2 battles when it comes to weight loss. The first one being getting the weight off and the second one maintaining your weight loss after you have reached your healthy weight. Both battles dealing with weight loss are hard, but I found using the Roca Labs formula made it easier to not only lose the extra weight, but also helped me to maintain my weight loss by changing my eating habits. I am not going to tell you that for the past 2 years I have not eaten any cookies, cakes, candy or fried foods because I have still enjoyed all those “off limit” foods. Maintaining your weight does not mean you can no longer enjoy all the foods that you always have. It simply means everything is in moderation. What Roca Labs did for me is change the way I look and see food. I maintain a healthy diet and occasionally I will have an “off limit” food such a cheeseburger and fries from a fast food restaurant. I just don’t eat these types of foods on a regular basis. When I look at food now, I say to myself can I afford those extra calories? Do I need that piece of cake? Am I really hungry or do I just want to eat it because it’s there? Now when I am hungry or want to snack I choose a healthy snack instead of reaching for the pint of ice cream. However if I am at a birthday party I DO eat a piece of cake and have some ice cream to. The key to successful weight management is moderation and this is what Roca Labs has taught me. I still use the Roca Labs formula on occasion to help me not overeat. Like most people out there I used food as comfort. So when I know I will be in a situation where I may be tempted to overeat like at a family reunion barbecue I take a dose of the Roca Labs formula that day so I won’t be tempted to over indulge in all that yummy food and just eat because it’s there. I continue to use the Roca Labs anti cravings supplement to help control my cravings for snacking. I found at night when I was either doing a paper for college or just relaxing in front of the television I would always eat chips or something, now I don’t even think about eating when I’m watching tv or writing a paper. I just don’t feel the urge to snack anymore. If I find myself hungry between meals I eat an apple or some other type of fruit. The truth is I would rather eat fruit, I CRAVE it! The best part of changing my eating habits is that I am setting a good example for my daughter. She actually asks for a piece of fruit instead of a cookie.
I am happy to report that I have kept my weight off and actually lost 10 more pounds since my last update. I have lost a total of 45 pounds! Attending school, working full time, and being a mother of a young child I didn’t think losing weight and keeping it off would be easy for me to do, but with a tool like Roca Labs it was! No weight loss method can guarantee results or promise you will not regain the weight back.Did you know that 70% of people that have had weight loss surgery regain the weight within 7 years! When that happens what do you do? Do you go in for another surgery to make your stomach even smaller than what it is now? That is something I personally would not want to take a chance on. When searching on weight loss you need to look at all the facts; the good along with the bad. Not every weight loss method works for everyone. The most important thing in winning the battle against fat is first to be fully committed to your weight loss. If you are not in the full mindset to lose the weight no method you try will work. We all know the best way to lose weight is to simply cut your calories and increase your exercise, but for most of us this is not a simple thing to do; we need a tool and in my opinion Roca Labs is the strongest tool out there, but remember your mind is STRONGER.
I am living proof that the battle against fat can be won!
