Lisa Lynn! Yes, that's her real name. She is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and it's an honor to be able to work with her.

I'm at a loss for words after reading her story, especially knowing all she's gone through in her life in the past, and recently. Sadly, she's just had to put her dog down who was riddled with cancer, and her dad is currently in the hospital fighting for his life. Yet, she manages to stay committed to her weight loss goals. What an inspiration!

Whatever you may be going through, I encourage you to read more about Lisa and be inspired by her courage and determination. — Lisa Lynn

If you had to put a title to your weight loss story, what would it be?
"Fat is Not My Fate!"

What is your favorite LynFit metabolic boosting weight loss recipe?
The Chicken Soup recipe in Lisa's book, "The Metabolism Solution." I am not a big fish fan, so I really like to change up the meal plans by adding in the chicken soup. Plus, it is easy to make, very filling, and nice and warm in the winter months.

I also like the peanut butter bliss balls, but I have to be careful to not eat a whole batch of them at once. It helps to freeze them and then just take one out.

I love the strawberry/banana protein powder too. I always go for the sweet taste, so on the days when I am craving sweet, it hits the spot.

What is your favorite LynFit supplement to use, and why? How has it helped you?
First, I have such a slow metabolism that I truly need all of the LynFit supplements. I use all of them daily. My top two favorite supplements are the Accelerator Advanced and the Thyroid Boost.

Did you encounter any obstacles? If so, how did you overcome them?
My old failed habits and negative thoughts are my two biggest obstacles. What helped fight those two obstacles is the simplicity of the plan and Lisa’s encouragement. I knew what I needed to do and I knew she was there to help me. I also felt like she was the first person that understood my struggle. I knew if I slipped, if I focused on getting back to the basics, I could get back on track quickly. The fast results also helped fight old habits and negative thoughts because it helped prove them to be false. I started looking at things with a different perspective. My success on the program continues to be a huge motivating factor in overcoming my two biggest obstacles.

How has your life changed since you lost weight?
LynFit has changed every aspect of my life. I used to avoid people and lived like a hermit. I would go to work and come home, pull the blinds, and hide. I had a rule that I had to go and get groceries before 6 a.m. so no one would catch me buying groceries that I obviously did not need. I tried every diet I could find. With every failed attempt, my depression grew deeper, and my waistband grew larger. I was horrified to go clothes shopping, and frankly, the only places I could find that had clothes big enough to fit me were the plus size catalogs. I am not at my goal weight yet, but with every five pounds lost, I gain freedom and confidence. I can finally mow my lawn without having derogatory comments from teenagers shouted at me. I can now go and get groceries at normal hours without feeling like I am doing something wrong or being anxious. I can go for walks without feeling embarrassed. I have a long way to go, but I see hope now and know that I can achieve my goals. Knowing that I am going to be released from my self-imposed prison is exhilarating. LynFit has changed me to the core. The LynFit program is a true gift.
