Sherry’s Story

Sherry has a great story.  She has been diabetic for years and she has made some massive changes!

 

“I have been on a lifestyle change. It has been a year following a ketogenic food plan.  When I started this journey that sounded like “here I go. Another diet…” and I am sure my family and friends were skeptical too. However, I can honestly say I have never been HUNGRY, and have only felt the urge to cheat one time. Sitting between two grandkids in a movie theater and them both chowing down on extra buttery popcorn. But that passed and I felt better for it. My labs are improved. My a1C is 5.9 now. My ankles do not swell. And my arthritis inflammation is really improved. My eyesight is clearer and I do not have brain fog like I used to have. I eat regular foods. Take no Diet pills. No surgery.

Dr Henriksen us a major part of my success. She is with me every step of the way. I have lost 65 pounds in the last year. For some, that would be too slow of a weight loss to stay committed. However it takes a lot of work and time for me to drop a pound… and I did not put my weight on overnight either. My only complaint about losing weight is I am chilly. My insulation is leaving me. But a hoodie on a 70 degree day feels good. And when I feel good and I am on track it becomes a great day for me!”

 

I’m so proud of Sherry!!!  It just goes to show that it CAN be done without a lot of medication or surgery—#FOODHEALS

Thanks so much for sharing your story Sherry!
