Hello Earthly Bodies! Each month I’d like to bring you a client spotlight as a way to introduce you to real everyday people, like you and I, that have decided to take control of their health and make their body a safe place to live with help from Earthly Bodies Natural Living. It is only fitting that the first one go to my Mama, Jacque. Besides Father God she was the first person to love me in spite of myself. I hope you enjoy this and future posts like it.
As a teenager and young woman if you really wanted to get under my skin all you had to say was “ooh you’re just like your Mama.” That would send me to a place where my only mission in life was to prove you wrong. Not anymore. My heart is smiling so big over her dedication and accomplishments in her natural living journey. Today, I would like this post to celebrate this amazingly beautiful and phenomenal woman. I’d like to share with the world how grateful I am to have even a small chance of that statement being true.
Today’s Client Spotlight is about my Mama; my first best friend, my first teacher, my Pastor and most recently she added EBNL Client to her resume ;-).
In January of this year she received news from her doctor that shook both her and I to the core. The doctor wanted her take yet another prescription which would put her at 5 meds. ABSOLUTELY NOT! After all I had learned to allow my body to heal itself that was not going to happen. Besides if I owe this knowledge to anyone she is first on the list! Operation save my Mama was in full effect and I was a force to be reckoned with. God actually used this event to push me out of the nest to fulfill my purpose of running EBNL full time <3. I am elated with the outcome of her overall health and that she is down to only 1 prescribed medication…WINNING! Here is her testimonial about her experience as an EBNL client.
My Mama loss 7 lbs in her initial 10 day detox, but has continued her journey with the tools and tips she learned from EBNL and was down 29 lbs. in 2 months. Still losing…
“I have tried to lose weight off and on for years! As a matter of fact I have been losing the weight loss battle since 1998! I have tried every diet under the sun that came in my path unsuccessfully, sometimes doubling what I did lose. I have tried to do it on my own, thru reading an author’s book and following the plan, giving up along the way or following a fitness program from TV (only to realize that if at all possible I could just eat the little bit of the food plan prescribed along with the heavy workout, it was no way not to lose even not exercising, but never satisfying).
I was offered a plan which constituted a new way of thinking whereby I eat to live, rather than live to eat, by my daughter-Johanna Earthly Ramos, that included a mindset change whereby I wasn’t dieting (they all fail), but Healthy Eating, Drinking and Exercise as a Lifestyle, in July 2014 of which I heard her, but did not adhere and continued to try other things, still unsuccessfully! Thanks Be To FATHER GOD that my daughter never gave up on me!
Then it happened! Jan. 27, 2015, I took a look at myself in the mirror, did not like what I saw (how so out of shape I had gotten and disgusted about the amount of medicine I was on), that I made the decision to truly do something about the look of sick and unhealthy that I refused to let plague me any longer, because it wasn’t the way FATHER GOD designed me to be!
On Jan. 28, 2015, I weighed in at 214 lbs. I’ve always heard health specialist say that I needed to walk 10,000 steps a day, outside of my job or daily regimen, so I decided to see what that would be. To my surprise it was a 5 mile walk! So I did it everyday from that point on! So excited on Feb. 4, 2015 that I told my daughter about it. She reminded me that I would also have to change my eating habits to effect the change in my body and health that I was looking for. So on that day, I decided to give her 10 Day Detox Plan a try. I started on Feb. 16, 2015 (still doing my daily 5 mile walk). I went from 214 lbs. to 207 lbs.. Implementing the tips of her plan after my 10 day detox ten days later, on the 26th of Feb., I weighed in at 196 lbs. and 2 dress sizes smaller, having lost several inches as well. I am now getting in clothes that still had tags on them that I have never been able to wear. Moving from a size 18 to a 14 and some size 12-14! I continued to maintain in this new Lifestyle of eating and decided on April 8, 2015 to do a 5 Day Detox under her supervision! To my surprise, along with my continued exercise regimen and healthy eating, I went from 196 to 185 and have been maintaining that weight to now. I have 29 down and 31 more pounds to lose and keep off from this point on! Thanks Johanna & Earthly Bodies Natural Living as I continue giving my body what it needs and it shining for me. I feel great and am hardly taking any medication that has been prescribed for me. And yes, I have my Check-ups and my doctor says I am looking and doing very good. PRAISE THE LORD! Obedience always brings the intended Blessing!”
