Lucille Roberts member Sabrina has had a truly amazing total body transformation! We’re thrilled to share with you her story in her own words.
My weight struggle is much like every other story I’ve heard. I was heavy my whole life; I had been on every fad diet imaginable and had become accustomed to being discontent with my body. The moment that propelled me towards my ambitious weight loss was my Junior High 10 year reunion. When I was 14, I vowed to myself that I would prove all of my adolescent bullies wrong and become thin. Here I was, 10 years later, and I was the heaviest I’d ever been, weighing in at 231 lb. at 5’2”. At the reunion, although everyone was rather nice and polite, I still felt the stares and heard the snickering. I clearly remember the overwhelming feeling of having failed, and the person I had failed was myself.
The next day I signed up at Lucille Roberts. I had been working as a makeup artist and was doing well for myself career-wise but still hated what I saw in the mirror and how I felt. I decided to make my health my number one priority, especially considering that diabetes runs on both sides of my family, and at 24 years old, I was showing signs of being borderline. It took me 19 months of dedication, but with the help of LR trainers, products, and motivational words, I lost 100 lb. and have kept it off for nearly a year.
My weight loss has affected every aspect of my life in the best ways possible. I am now a very positive person and constantly upbeat. I want my success to be that of anyone who feels unhappy with their body. There’s no magic overnight pill; it’s just a lot of hard work, portion control, and using supplements as tools to assist weight loss. This drastic but necessary transformation has given me purpose, and if I can leave one message for anybody, it’s this: if your health isn’t where it needs to be, stop what you’re doing and make it so, because no matter how much money you make, how great your love life is, or how nice a home you have, if you won’t be around to experience it, what’s the point? Health is prevention and the cure.
