Years after my father died, I started to have my own health challenges … gastritis, heart trouble, knee pain, poor sleep quality, etc. Despite my best efforts, I just couldn’t make exercise and a healthy diet a daily habit.
Everything changed on November 19, 2016.
I was invited by a friend to be her plus one in an event she won. We went. It was a fitness awareness event. Before it ended, the attendees were invited to join a 45-day coffee fitness challenge. We love games, contest or any sort of challenges so we signed up. After a week we were asked to have a weigh-in. Unfortunately, Rachelle could not come because she was in the province. I came and was 85 kgs or 187 lbs in weight. We were given our FREE Javita Burn + Control box and told that we can do simple exercises with it or not, our choice.
The following day November 27, I started my journey. I never felt upset drinking the coffee (which I prefer drinking black), first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach. What I noticed after drinking, was that I didn’t have an appetite or sudden food urges. I incorporated 30 mins dance exercise 2-3x/week. That’s it! First week I noticed my boobs are bigger than my tummy. Yes! And this is the holiday season where I got invited to lots of gatherings and parties. I ate what I liked, but in moderation. Not because I am dieting, but I felt full right away. On my 3rd week, I went to my aunt’s place. He said ‘your tummy shrunk and your thinner’. I showed him my IG account where I chronicled my journey. He asked my starting weight and challenged me to weigh in. I was 170 lbs that day. I had lost 15 lbs. He ordered 2 boxes. My Tita Josie ordered two more boxes for herself. Before the weekend was over, I had orders for 10 more boxes of coffee.
Last Thursday (my 54th day using Javita Burn + Control) was our final weigh-in. I am now 165 lbs (22 lbs lighter) and shrank my waistline from 36 ‘waistline to 29’. Best of all, I won the challenge!
I will continue to do this until I achieve my ideal weight not only for myself but most especially for my children because I want to be there in each of their milestone. And to continue to help those who want to be helped. Remember it’s a personal choice. No one will make this happen but yourself. If I can, yes you can!”
