If I think about it too much, I’ll get emotional. But I don’t want to feel like that about something that seems trivial, like weight loss.
But, it’s skin, too. It’s hair. It’s a lot. It’s energy levels throughout the day. It’s response time, and stuff. So, it’s more than just, oh, I want to lose weight. It’s just, I want to be healthy. My cramps and things are not as severe. There’s a whole lot more to it when you start getting your body in synergy with itself.
I used to crash around 3:00 every day. I’d just go, oh, I’d give anything to get out of this office. And, I find that I can get off work, I still have the natural energy to still go to the gym. And then, I sleep well. I sleep all the way through the night. I don’t crave sugar. I thought that I would never be able to give up sugar. Never. Me? Mike and Ike, Skittles,
jellybeans, that was my vice. But I don’t even think about it. And I find alternatives, healthy solutions to feed those cravings.
I don’t know, it’s the same me, but different, better. I just know that in the beginning, my
girlfriend had actually mentioned Dr. Starler to me when she first started going, two years ago. And the very first question that I asked, that I think a lot of people ask, was, how much is she? How much does it cost?
When I found out how much the initial consult was, I was like, oh, yeah, forget it. I’ll just do something else, or I’ll do it another time. It’s not that big of a deal. When I really think about, and put into perspective, how much I spend on a pair of shoes, and the things I spend on, why not on my body, on the inside of me?
And I feel like it’s the best money that I genuinely have ever spent. I’m happy as heck. And so, I don’t want her ever to be like, Sharifa, that’s it, I don’t need to see you anymore. Because I think I’ll be sad. I’m really happy. This was one of the best things I’ve done.
This was the highlight of 2012 for me.
