I Hate My Fat A**

I HATE MY FAT A**! I am so sick of stepping out of the shower and running past my bathroom mirror because I hate looking at my dimply saggy butt. I am too young at heart for this. I have done a bunch of different diets and even paid a loser, same program for everyone, trainer at a local gym who just talked about his problems for an hour on my dime! I am tired of wearing baggy pants and now there are these cute new thigh high pants (see insert photo) that look like they would be so much fun to wear and I want to look good enough to wear a pair to work. I refuse to go through one more season wearing old baggy clothes. I know this may not be important to many people, but to me, I want to have a tight, firm rear end that doesn’t have dimples and doesn’t jiggle when I walk. Please help me.
- Jazelle

Girlfriend, I feel your pain! This really hurts you and I appreciate your aggressiveness and honesty with your question.

I don’t think what you feel is unimportant for one second. Liking how you look is as vital as having fresh breath on a hot date. Not feeling good about your body is a signal that you are ready to make a change and take the steps necessary to have the body you want.

Putting aside your pride and revealing the thoughts of your heart and reaching out with an extended arm for help expressed by your frustration is powerful. I applaud you for that and I am charmed to be your source of a solution. I appreciate that you are driven with a deep desire for something more than what you have.

Most people are walking around in a politically correct speech bubble with a silent desperation for something they can’t even identify because they are so afraid to express their true thoughts, pain, and heart felt desire. It shows you are a woman who can take that pain and turn it into fuel to reprogram your mind, train your body and feed your body exactly what it needs to be healthy, happy and sexy.

I love the topic of body restructuring (cellulite blasting program). It makes me feel alive, connected and a part of a brave new movement for reclaiming the bodies we deserve.

I thought I was the only person in the world who read the women’s fitness magazines that said I should "love my (then overweight, dimpled and full of lady lumps) body" and not be hard on myself. Yeah right.

They say that and all the while their cover model has a perfectly sculpted body with no dimples, stretch marks or post baby lower belly bulge. If we all should celebrate our bodies at any size why didn’t they put an overweight woman with stretch marks and two toddlers hugging her legs as she tries to make breakfast for her overworked husband as he heads to a beautiful office with other women wearing those hot new thigh high pants with stiletto heels and my favorite Sexy Donna Karan luxury legging? AHHHHHHHHHHHH

The whole world embraces internal strength, confidence, beauty, energy and feeling sexy, including those magazines

Why do you think Justin Timberlake’s new hit song, “Bringing Sexy Back” has been at the top of the music charts for weeks? Because, it resonates with how we really feel inside and celebrates who we are and what we would like to be seen as. Sexy isn’t just about cantaloupe sized breasts, it’s a song of peace, joy and confidence that manifests as inner power that oozes out into every aspect of your being. That’s what you really want isn’t it. You want to move about in the world and be significant and feel special. You want to walk out of a room and have people follow you with their eyes and a great smile on their face saying, wow, she looks fantastic. You want people guessing how old you are, because you haven’t aged a day in ten years.

You are ready to change instantly by eating the right power foods that are low carb, anti- aging, low glycemic and make your body burn fat.

One of my specialty areas of expertise is attacking cellulite (fat) on people's bodies. I was so overweight and lumpy before. I would never go swimming or wear shorts. In the heat of the summer, I would wear long black pants and refused to go to my best friend’s pool parties.

In college my marketing class decided to take a trip to LA for a buying trip. One of our perks was a two-night stay at a luxury hotel and spa. Everyone was thrilled. Needless to say, I was horrified. The thought of going to Hollywood, the land of babes and beauties, made me so ashamed, I literally wanted to throw up every time I thought about it. I’m sure you can imagine the different emotions I went through preparing for a poolside appearance.

While everyone was putting their wardrobes for the trip together, I was binging and purging from the trauma of being in the land of thin beautiful people when at the time I was well over fifty pounds over fat. I made it through the trip by always being busy and avoiding the pool altogether, but I swore that would never happen again. As a part of my journey, I have come up with some permanent weight management solutions so that you will never hate the way you look again.

Jazelle, when you start my program; Freedom From Fat – Cellulite Solution, you will love the way you feel and you will have the energy to do the things you have been putting off and avoiding.

You will have the confidence it takes to wear those hot new thigh high pants and as a bonus, go out and buy your self some of those fabulous new winter shorts. I love them. I have three pair already.

Freedom From Fat- Cellulite Solution
I am so excited to share with you some of my most tried and true methods of ridding your body of your lady lumps, those pesky dimples that make you feel like you would look great if you were a grapefruit

I had cellulite when I was heavy but I was able to lose the weight with an overhauled lifestyle that consisted of low carb (low glycemic) eating, Power Shaping Vertical Training (light weights and cardio) and consistently following detoxification principles.

I am cellulite free and more peaceful than I have ever been. I am a walking breathing testimony that you can reduce body fat and tighten and tone your butt. In addition, you can also have smooth legs, pretty arms and flat abs. The reason I am more peaceful now is that I am more confidant with who I am. I believe extra fat on your body is not only bad for your health; it damages your psyche too. We are a creation that strives for perfection and we are happier when we look our best and achieve what we are capable of.

I have put together some fantastic information about cellulite and some great tips to help you get started on your Quick Start to a tight and sexy butt.

Cellulite Is Fat
Cellulite is found in both overweight and slim women but excess weight makes cellulite worse. It is considered a normal occurrence resulting from uneven fatty deposits, mostly below the waistline. Cellulite is the accumulation of fat, fluid and toxins that develops under your skin. Cellulite is mostly a women's problem. Men tend to have lower percentages of body fat than women, which is ultimately responsible for cellulite.

Most of the treatments advertised today that include pills, suction machines, creams and wrapping the skin are not really effective solutions to getting rid of cellulite.

Liposuction can surgically remove fat cells but it is not a permanent solution and requires repeating the treatment over and over again. Plus it is quite an expensive procedure for the average person.

Jazelle, since you have tried a bunch of different diets, and are still prone to cellulite, you have to have a complete overhaul and start a fresh because this is about a lifestyle. This is not just a quick diet band-aid, but a complete New Beginning that will lead to a life filled with confidence, energy and fun.

You will feel so great and you will never look back and regret one day you spent trying other programs. You will have a clear mind that is free from biochemical anxiety, fear and doubts. You see there are certain foods that are good for your body and they balance your blood sugar which helps you have more clarity and peace of mind. I tell you more about them in my program.

Consistent changes through the perfect diet plan and organized exercise are the best way to help reduce the fat cell size. Detoxifying your body will also help get rid of the trapped fluids under your skin. Resistance training with light weights, cardio and stretching, will tighten and shape your muscles and connective tissue while increasing blood circulation.

A good anti-cellulite diet includes eating low fat, low-carb, high fiber foods especially fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. See my Quick Start Energy Program for a complete list of the foods that burn fat and foods that build fat. One food from the unacceptable foods list can throw your body into a fat building mode quicker than a rabbit on fertility hormones.

Victoria’s Freedom From Fat
The Cellulite Solution

Quick Tips – 30 day Quick Start

  • Drink 2-4 quarts of water daily. Water flushes toxins out of the body and improves circulation.
  • Eat fibrous fruits and vegetables to generate daily bowel movements
  • Don’t smoke. Smoking causes poor blood circulation and contributes to premature aging and sagging of the skin.
  • NO alcohol for the first thirty days
  • Limit Coffee to one cup per day
  • Stop eating sugar and sugary snacks. Instead reach for fresh fruit and raw veggies.
  • Stop eating all fried foods and those high in saturated and hydrogenated fats.
  • Avoid canned foods and other foods high in salt. Salt increases water retention and makes cellulite worse
  • Drink herbal teas
  • Limit soda to one diet soda per day. NO regular soda, sugar is too high
  • Eat five small meals four to five times per day.
  • Take 1,000 milligrams daily of Vitamin C, which has been recommended by cellulite researchers
  • Maintain a normal, healthy body weight. Yo-yoing weight with diets make cellulite worse
  • Boost your circulation by using a brush, loofah or a massage glove daily for at least 5 minutes.
  • Massage your skin with almond oil. This may improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage
  • Do some sort of cardio for thirty minutes and Stretch daily.

Jazelle, unfortunately, cellulite is one of those things that we as women experience. The good news is… You don’t have to live with it. You have been granted the freedom to build your best body ever. Now you have the tips you need to immediately begin your body restructuring process and eliminate cellulite.

A good dance movement exercise program, whole fresh organic foods found right at your neighborhood stores, a stimulating massage you can do yourself, and some simple nutrition changes are a proven combination for cellulite reduction.

I know it works because I have used the process on hundreds of clients and myself. I am a walking witness that you can get a smooth dimple free fine behind.

I have put years of research into designing my workouts, my fat blasting Quick Start Energy Program that I love and my new Freedom From Fat Cellulite Solution (a free bonus with the my Quick Start Program). This is an Anti-Cellulite Classic Program that I just released and is available for immediate MP3 Download! It is one of the most comprehensive programs ever created. It is totally amazing. I am getting rave reviews every single day. I even had a publishing company try to buy it from me and put a fancy cover and repackage it and mark it up because they said I am selling it for too cheap.

NO way! I am offering it to you at a price that everyone can afford. When I complete the entire series it will sell for $197.00, but for now I am offering it as a special bonus included with my Quick Start Energy Program. That's right you can get my Freedom From Fat Cellulite Solution Audio MP3 program FREE when you order Quick Start Today!

This is our secret! This offer is available to you now before I get my complete detox program complete. So, Order yours today and have the beautiful body you have always dreamed of. The cost of the entire program is less than a fancy dinner for two.

Jazelle the key is... Start Today. In the next eight weeks you will be sporting your thigh high pants and turning heads and making your co-workers jealous. You go girl!

God Bless and make it the Best Week Ever!

I Am Back To My Pre-Baby Weight And My Cellulite Is GONE!

Victoria, You are an angel! I had a beautiful baby girl ten months ago, her name is Meridith, and I had fifteen pounds of baby weight that would not go away. My body went through wild hormonal imbalances during my pregnancy, I got some cellulite dimples on my legs and rear. I love being a mom, but I was so exhausted and I was ready to get my pre-baby figure back. I heard a Quick Start Ad and I loved the way you give me so many ideas about how to eat the right fat burning foods that also helped me tone up my body.

I am elated to let you know that I have so much more energy now to be a mom and a wife. I am back to my pre baby weight and the cellulite is GONE! You have made such a difference in me as a person with your teaching style and positive and empowering messages. I am going to order some of your DVD’s this week so that I can start to really tone up without having to leave Meredith with a sitter. Thank you so much for being there for me and guiding me with your enthusiastic and loving compassion in your CD’s and weekly teachings online.
