Finally, a brand I could trust and get behind.
So, I've just turned 38 and I am officially an old man, who for the longest time has been at war with my weight. Look, by no means have I ever been obese or not able to get out of bed. However, I've always been what I like to call a "Skinny Fat Bloke." :)
Like most people, I have tried to put it down to my age or my metabolism not being what it used to be. However, the reality is that I have for a number of months let myself slip to a weight I never thought I would be at. Some things in the universe conspired in my favour so that Skinny Jab and Caroline came into my life and since then I have not looked back. It has been an eye-opening experience and remarkably easy process which I have loved. And I want to let you guys know what happened with me and how it has been the most positive experience for as long as I can remember.
Start from the Beginning
I work in advertising and I also have a business that deals with client entertainment so as you can imagine I do find I spend many hours of the day sitting about. I am active but not as much as I should be. I have been doing Brazilian Ju-Jitsu for a while now and without that I think I would be a lot bigger than I am now. On July the 1st of this year (2018) I will be entering my first BJJ Submission only tournament because I have the skills to do it but my size was always a problem. I have been hovering around the 90kg mark for over 7 months (I have put this down to work and feeling low after a bad breakup but that’s just excuses) And I stand at 5 feet 9 inches tall. So officially I'm over weight and I am certainly overweight for the fight. I needed to get to 79kg and I didn’t know where to start.
Luckily in my job I get to speak to all sorts of people and businesses and one day I happened to come across Skinny Jab. After some research I could see they are at the forefront of what they do and importantly a trustworthy brand and people appear to swear by them. This was enough for me to make the initial call.
Of course, in my head I am thinking " I bet this is just for girls." Or " They will laugh at me for even calling them" However my experience was the exact opposite. I couldn’t have spoken to more helpful people if I tried. They guided me through it all step by step and so I decided to take the plunge and go for it. After speaking to their Harley street clinicians, I DID!
THE PEN ARRIVES.
Day 1: 89kg
I have never felt so motivated to do something in all my life. My initial weight the morning of the 5th of April was 89kg. I'm still a little hesitate that it will not work because you hear about these fads coming and going. However, I like Caroline and I trust her so I took myself out of my raincloud negative mindset and went for it.
I had the video to follow how to do the injection, and it was a doddle. My initial feelings straight after was a little light headedness but that passed within moments. I did not know if I was talking myself into it in any way but I could have sworn it worked straight away for me and I could feel the benefits instantly.
I say this because by the time it was lunch, I was still full up from my Granola breakfast cereal. So, I thought "Wow, I think we are onto something here Rodders!"
Day 2- 6 89kg-85kg
I started training alongside my good eating which basically consists of a carb breakfast and then following the recipes that SKINNY JAB provided me for lunch and dinner. Although by now, I really couldn’t fit much in. I had a few mouthfuls and felt like I had 10 big macs. This actually works!!!
Day 6-10 85kg-82kg
I am on a roll now. I have somehow managed to drop 7 kilos in total since I started this thing 10 days ago. And I feel like I am just getting started. Today I decided to up my dosage as well to the recommended amount after 10 days. It has kicked me into another gear. I am literally a machine now. I have my six pack back which I missed. And got rid of the blasted hamster cheeks I have had for so long. I am feeling great, confident and myself again.
Day 10-12 82kg-80kg
Apart from the rest of the miracles that are happening before my very eyes and all my family, friends and colleagues who cannot help but to mention the change whenever I see them. I have not drunk a single drop of alcohol either. This has been so good for me. I hadn't realised how many empty calories were in these things at all! If I take anything away from this is to do things in moderation. I have an addictive personality and this has really taught me to reign it in!
Day 12-15 80kg – 79kg
Target weight achieved. I don’t bloody believe it. Its only gone and bloody happened.
Do not get me wrong. If you did this and went against everything Caroline and her team advise then I do not think this could work for you the way it should. However, if you follow their trusted guidelines then, wow, it really is party time! I am so happy and so grateful.
Thank you SKINNY JAB
