I BURIED MY PAIN WITH FOOD: "Live-IT Don't DIE-IT" CHALLENGE


Where do I begin?


My name is Karmen, age 48 and counting. I was a small 110 lbs lean sexy diva. I ate any and everything I wanted and I didn't worry about gaining weight. I was very active and had more motivation that kept me going. I have never had a weight problem.


My weight began to get out of control in May 2001 when the most important person in my life, my best friend, my comforter, my life, my mother started getting sick. I watched a very active person go from moving around with ease to a bed of pain and discomfort, from being superwoman doing everything to needing everything done for her. When my mom went into the hospital I found out That I was pregnant. Now in my family they believe that when someone is with child? A death is soon to come to make room for the new birth. I was not happy because I was the one that was with child and now my mom must leave. With the guilt of that weighing on my shoulders, I thought if I terminated the child I could save my mom. So I did. But on August 6,2001 began my struggle. I lost my best friend. This loss place me in the deepest depression state that I couldn't handle. I turned to a new comforter. Food and alcohol was my best friend. I felt like I had no one to love me like she did.

I picked up the weight as rapid as the heart beats. I went from wearing a size 8-10 to a size 14-16 to a size 26. I was so depressed. I started to get back on track from diet to diet. I tried doing it on my own to spending a huge amount on Jenny Craig. Now I did lose some weight but I started to gain it all back. In 20011 I joined Weight Watcher. I started there weighing a little over 300 lbs. when I left in January 20012, I weighed 257 lbs. I got back down to wearing a size 18-22 depending on the store. As of April 24,2014 I now weigh 258 lbs. I need a new lease on life and now I feel I can do it. My goal weight is 158 lbs. with the help I know this is reachable. 
God is my strength and through him nothing is impossible. Matthew 21: verse 22 says: If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer. My prayer is for a lifestyle change and a better me. So let the games begin. I'm "Getting Fit To Win" and taking my life back.
This is my story...
Join me on Lee Brandon's "Live-IT Don't DIE-IT" Challenge!  Join us and follow us...  See the "Too Big for the Biggest Looser" blog for details.

I'm on my way to turning my life around!  Become part of our FIT BOD SQUAD.

TOO BIG FOR THE TV'S BIGGEST WEIGHT LOSS SHOW: "Live-IT DON'T Die-IT" CHALLENGE by Lee Brandon

Join us in the "Live-IT" CHALLENGE

APRIL 24TH, 2014 START WITH LEE BRANDON'S
Live-IT" PROGRAM

Hi. My name is Dominique Karan. I am a professional Singer, Performer, and mom! 


I WAS 568 pounds in 2012 when I tried out for the TV Show the Biggest Looser.  I was told: "YOUR TOO BIG FOR THE BIGGEST LOOSER!"   

Truth is, I was told the producers didn't select me because I exceeded their weight limit--  another NO, another failure.

I was looking for help to lose weight and found Lee Brandon's No Fail Weight Loss Program.  She gave me the educational foundation to loose #70 pounds in 2 years and keep it off (I'm today #498).
Now I am ready for the next level--  and "Live-IT DON'T Die-IT" with Lee!


Now,  I'm challenging you all to join me in committing to ourselves and those we love to "Live-IT" don't Die-IT" with Lee, and challenge ourselves, individually and collectively to take our lives to the next level.  
I am willing to expose my story in the hopes that there are others of you out there who have tried everything and have failed.  Lee's system won't allow you to fail!
I'm a single mom who went about the business of raising two kids, maintaining a home, reporting for mom duties, kids after school actives  volunteer mom and a full time day job. 
Somehow, within all this I ignored my health, I stopped looking in the mirror. I completely ignored what was happening to my body and I found myself morbidly obese. Who the hell wants to be that! As the kids got older and need less of me i started trying to change this. Over the last 10 yrs I've tried and failed at all the popular weight loss products out there. Like Lindora, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, 6 week body makeover and everything else u can find on an infomercial.

 Sigh***..Thank God I found Lee Brandon. She has constructed a realistic plan and workout suited for my food likes,  body size, injuries and arthritic knees. After my meeting and  workout with Lee today I'm excited and confident this time I will succeed with my fitness goals.  Join our FIT BOD SQUAD, follow US, lets ALL dedicate the next 12 weeks to inspire each other, and using Lee's system to bring us all to a new zip code of health!  
If I can do it.....I promise you, anybody can do it!  xoxo  Dominique

 THE "Live-IT NOT Die-IT" PROGRAM:


_________________________________________________________

There are 45 Million Women in the United States size 14 or larger and considered PLUS-SIZE.  Most of that 45 million are considered morbidly obese!  Our goal is to guide you to being healthy first,  and not hyper-focusing on the numbers.  Lee Brandon, CSCS has been considered plus size, yet at 220 lbs., she created "Live-IT NOT Die-IT" because of the myths that exist in the fitness industry around weight and fat loss!  "There is hope."

_________________________________________________________

THE PLAN:  Over the next 12 weeks we will share Lee Brandon's Secrets to "Live-IT NOT Die-IT" Program!

________________________________________________________

Lets Start:  (follow this blog and over the next series of weeks these points will be discussed at  length.)


1.  Take photo's with a magazine like above.  3 views in front of a grid of some sort (possibly a doorway or door for progress shots).

2. Get a waist measurement:  Do it in Feet and inches...around the largest part of the low abdomen, just below the waist and around the top of the hip

3.  Check with your physician and make sure you can exercise.

4.  Pain is not gain, but "Intensity" is gain.  If any exercise hurts--STOP!  DO NOT TRAIN THROUGH PAIN.  Not all exercises shown here will be designed for you personally, but may need to be modified by your Health Care advisor.

5.  Sign up for APP:  My Fitness Pal (FREE):  You can at a glance see numerically what your consuming.

6.  Keep track of your "Fidget Factor".  Fat chooses to be burnt at a lower level of activity due to it being a survival fuel...increasing your over all Fidgeting will increase your metabolism exponentially.  

7.  Reduce consumption by 20%.  Focus on quality food consumption, so "Live-IT NOT Die-IT" tip would be have 1 beer not 4.  Loose one slice of bread in a sandwich...

8.  Eat on a smaller plate:  If your used to eating everything on your plate, change the plate!

9.  Nike Running App for walking tracker:  Brilliant for tracking all walking, not just running.  Walk and swing your arms!  If your not looking funny, your not doing it right!  

10.  Add more water, 2- 8 oz. am upon waking/  1-8 oz. glass prior to every meal.   it takes 20' for the stomach to send a signal that it's full.  

11.  Loose all white foods:  White, sugar, white bread, white potatoes...  

12.  Add more Fiber:  Flax and dietary fiber...berries...

13.  6 strict days, 1 day off.  1 CHEAT DAY!  Life's too short not to have a glass of RED Wine!  I'm just saying!!!

14.  Exercise 4x's week 30':  Form is everything!  A tall Posture burns more calories than a collapsed one due to the amount of muscle it takes to hold you taller!  

15.  Wait...Weight!  THROW YOUR SCALE OUT!  So many women obsess over the numbers.  This is disastrous.  More to come later!  Get your initial numbers and hide it!

________________________________________________________________________

SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND JOIN THE FIT BOD SQUAD FOR LEE BRANDON'S "Live-IT Don't Die-IT" CHALLENGE!!!!!


______________________________________________________________________


THE EXERCISES:


1.  WALK TALL:  Treadmill, elliptical, Bike...  Move and sing your favorite song!  If it's 5'...do it!  Track it!



2.  Here are a few fun pulling drills:  



Put tube around belly button and use your muscles to pull...

Count Me In: Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corp


Count Me In:  Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corps
 
I am happy to share with you all that I will be in Washington, DC in April at the Women Veteran Entrepreneur Corpsconvention.  It is a huge honor to be included in this collaborative leadership network of powerful women.  Come join us!  http://www.countmein.org
 
I had the honor of having breakfast with Nell Merlino.  She offered to have me join her in DC for her upcoming events as her guest!  I am so excited!
 
Come join us on Wednesday for the events:
 
Count Me In is pleased to partner with MASSIVE CHANGE NETWORK to bring you the 2014 Leadership Institute! 
The Count Me In Leadership Institute: Thrive with Massive Change is two-day immersive experience especially designed for Count Me In award winners and finalists from all programs, and any woman who wants to stand on the conceptual cutting edge of design and its impact on life, work and business.
In order to meet the challenges of the modern world, women business owners must successfully transition from the 20th century model of leadership by business administration to the 21st century model of leadership by design.  In conjunction with Bruce Mau of Massive Change Network, the Institute presents  a revolutionary new way of thinking about that change.
We’ve assembled a roster of the nation’s leading small business and Massive Change experts to provide the insights needed to empower women entrepreneurs to become design creators at any and all stages of their business growth.
Change your thinking; change your life!
 
In the 21st century, our life experience is a design experience. The quality of our design is the quality of our life. If our design is poor, our life is poor. If our design is great — our life is great along with it. If our design supports life, then the life around us flourishes. That is why design matters. It determines the quality of our life.- Bruce Mau
 

THRIVE WITH MASSIVE CHANGE IS:

  • A revolutionary way of thinking and dealing with change as a function of design. Everything is a designed system and we are all design leaders in our business and in our lives.
  • A methodology that teaches how to anticipate, create, and participate in change, instead of ignoring or being victimized by it.
  • Taught by world renowned expert design innovator, Bruce Mau. Bruce has helped countries and global companies including Coca Cola, MTV, Great Britain and Saudia Arabia prepare for and direct change for decades to come.
  • A collaboration with Count Me In that infuses Feminine Bias and the power and perspective of women entrepreneurs with precepts of Massive Change.
  • A time to practice this new methodology so that you can use it in your business and in your life.
  • A place for direct interface with experts and intimate networking with peers.

Golf Again! Depressed By Back Pain?

Hi, My name is Harry from Los Angeles and I am 65 years old; I have played golf for 45+ years.  
Member at the Beautiful Peivate Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA.


For the last many years (over 10+), right leg sciatica back pain caused by herniated discs, scoliosis (aggressive lateral shift over 45 degrees) and spinal stenosis had greatly reduced my ability to play the game I love.   On a pain scale, I lived at 8's and 9's (10 being the most pain)!  I tried every stretching program and Physical Therapy option to no avail.  Nothing seemed to help.

I was very depressed, although I never lost hope of recovering. 

I was a good player, reached a 1 handicap in my prime. Went to many Doctors and tried many different techniques, but nothing worked for 10 years. (I had decided that I was never going to undergo surgery, nor any of these other extreme modalities.) 
Until I went to get core strengthening and golf-specific training with Lee Brandon and the AB-Inforcer® Core Biofeedback Training System.   After 18 months of specifically designed gym exercises and drills, and consistently doing the correct exercises on my own, I can now report I am finally better, stronger, and able to play 18 holes with almost no pain(.5 on the pain scale).
At the beginning of our sessions with Lee, I was in pain and we would grade the intensity of the pain (*1 minimal pain-10 maximal pain) and design the correct strengthening exercises accordingly.  
I was walking crooked, and bent forward as my upper body had laterally shifted to avoid the low back pain. I am still slightly shifted, but feel 2" inches taller and my scoliosis has diminished substantially. 
Before a round of golf, I could only hit about 10 practice shots on the range, otherwise the pain would build up and prevent me from swinging with any confidence on the course, so afraid to hurt myself further.   
After 12 weeks (2X's a week 12 coaching sessions) I was noticeably managing my pain by her education. One and 18 months of taking out my old exercises and reinventing all of my training, stretching, and swing with Lee, I am finally in a new place!
I am pain free and stronger than ever!!!!  My drives were 160-180, now I hit drives in excess of 220-230 yards.  
The other day, I hit balls on the range for almost one hour, without pain!!!  Now I can finally work on correcting all the bad habits that have crept into my swing during the last many years, dealing with my debilitating pain.
For those of you out there with a similar situation, the message is: "you can improve your condition with even basic, non invasive techniques, if well customized for your specific situation.  You don't have to live in pain!  Lee has the secrets." 



FROM THE DESK OF LEE BRANDON, CSCS:  

It's always exciting to get these powerful testimonials from those we are blessed to assist with their path to freedom from pain!  My cautionary note to all of you:  seek a credentialed specialist, then get a second opinion, a third…until you feel it resonate down deep inside of you as part of your solution!  If your still hurting, something is wrong!!!
Be careful self diagnosing.  Those of us who have been teaching performance enhancement for years, are still in business for a reason--we focus on delivering personalized solutions.  
The internet is full of too much information…or should I say mis information.  There are even protocols and exercise strategies to get you out of pain on-line that claim to do miraculous things.  Buyer beware…and if it's sounds too good…the old saying is true.
If Harry's story is your story, I have to share that his tireless efforts and drive to execute my "Spine Sparing Secrets" were driven by his goal to be pain free!  
He had the courage to take a "time out" from all the injurious things he had been doing prior to including my training system into his life until we addressed the "causes of his discomfort and stopped managing the effect!"  

Come out and support the LPGA.  I will be at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, CA.  If your interested in a complementary meet and greet, I have arranged a few blocks of hours to meet you all and answer your questions.  Email me for the details at LongDriveChamp@msn.com
