Hi, there! My name is Jordyn and I’m a 31-year-old mom from Seattle, WA. I’ve recently started the Roca Labs formula in an effort to lose some weight that I’ve gained. See, I’ve been thin and fit my entire life. As a teenager, I was very involved in sports and throughout college I continued to exercise to keep myself healthy. Exercise had always been my go-to method to relieve the stress and pressure that I felt from my classes. Then, after college, I got married and became a full-time housewife and mother, but I was still able to maintain an excellent figure–even after having 3 kiddos! I was so proud of myself because I was always able to squeeze in time for a workout (even if it was just a quick one) and I kept my diet fairly clean, as well.
I’m sure you’re wondering when the weight gain started, right? Well, I went through an awful divorce. It was messy and complicated and I fell into a deep depression; I just couldn’t believe that my marriage was over. After all, I had been a caring wife and mother and I even looked hot! But, in the end, it didn’t matter. I was now a single mother of 3, who had to find a job soon to support the family. The stress of everything coupled with the depression made me turn to food. Cupcakes, in particular. During the day, I’d work and care for my kids and at night, I’d binge eat Doritos and tons of other unhealthy snacks to cope with everything. I was a complete mess for about a year.
A few months ago, I went to a pool party for Labor Day and my friends had hinted, as politely as they could, that I had gained some weight. I didn’t think I looked different, but as soon as I got home, I stepped my dusty scale and I was horrified: 245 pounds it read! Throughout the course of one year, I gained 75 pounds. I felt panicked and completely disgusted with myself. How could I have let this happen? Because of a divorce? I put my foot down, decided to get fit again, and vowed to never let myself get back here.
From that point until about 2 weeks ago, I have been doing everything I could to lose weight. I’ve been exercising, which has helped me a little, but I’m still finding that late at night, I’m dying for junk food. Everything from cookies to chips and soda calls my name. I knew I had to find a way to eliminate my cravings, and after Googling some suggestions, I found Roca Labs. Their Anti-Cravings® promise to keep my blood sugar levels in the right place to help me stave off the overwhelming desire for sweets that I certainly don’t need!
After reading all that I could about the products, and finding some really great reviews, I ordered the Gastric Bypass NO Surgery® regimen. It came in the mail just a few days ago, and so far, I’ve been liking what I’ve been seeing. That’s when I thought to start a blog to keep myself accountable for my weight loss. I can’t wait to share my progress and I hope to inspire some other moms out there to get fit and healthy!
