This is my friend, Beverly Szumutku McLeod. She shares her emotional journey with us and explains how Valentus has changed her Life. I must Thank Bev! She is the one who encouraged me to try the coffee and I will be forever grateful! ❤☕ "Well this my update on my Journey with Valentus functional drinks. I started January 1st, 2016. As of May 1st, I have lost 35 pounds. It has been the easiest thing I have ever done. And I have done it all. Measured, shaked, fasted, counted points...you name it, I have done it. I am 62 years old and my metabolism was nil and void. I have to admit the energy I feel now is terrific. I sleep much better; maybe not as long, but boy am I rested when I get up, ready to take on the world. Instead of rolling out of bed, I jump. My first day on SlimRoast, I drank the coffee (thanks to Brenda Brown who opened this door for me) and about 3 hours after, I felt like someone had lifted a veil off my eyes. Everything seemed cleared and brighter. I seemed a lot more focused on my clients (I am sure they like this as well). If this is what they meant about Brain fog gone....mine definately is gone. After my divorce in 2004, and in full blown Menopause, I had a nervous breakdown. Even though I was the one who took the first step in the proceedings, there is still that emotional set back that I never dealt with. In 2008, I went on anti-depressants. They helped to keep my mind from being sad, but not my heart. I have to say, my mood and heart have been much happier. Life is good . I also have to say Valentus will be in my life forever. It rev'd up my metabolism, made me healthier by making my body more Alkaline than acidic. No inflammation in my joints, like I had before. I am even considering to try and start walking again, as my plantar fasciitis is gone. I guess I should of called this post Beverly unplugged. I didn’t mean to go on and on ...my fingers just wouldn’t stop! "See you on the Skinny side". Pictures to follow, before and after. **UPDATE DEC 2017 ** It has been over a year and a half since I posted this so I guess it's time to do an update. I have maintained my weight pretty much the same since May of 2016. That is HUGE for me! By now, I would have gained it all back. To update and say I haven't pleases me to no end. Oh, I have gained, in the last 2 years with Valentus, but not weight. 1) I have gained my health back, better then I felt 30 years ago. and I am NOT exaggerating. 2) I have gained new friends that I now call family. 3) I have gained and built a fabulous sisterhood in amongst our Team. 4) But most important, I have gained my self confidence back. This one brings me to tears. I have slowly gone off my anti-depressants and that, my friends, is the best feeling of all! Being able to actually have feelings and not feel numb all the time. Yes I am a lifer! I do ALL the products everyday. I drink 2 coffee a day, 1 Trim, 1 Immune, 5 sprays of Max 3 to 4 times a day, and I am really liking the Breakthrough .Waiting patiently for 2018.
