Why You WILL Succeed…This Time

Gertraud – My Story

New Lease on Life? No, I own it.

I can help you write your new story. The story of your success.

A story that doesn’t end.

But that continues, as long as you have breath in your body.

A story that, until now, was one of struggle. Of pain. Of being left out, when all you wanted was to be accepted.

I get it.

When you’re too tired to play hopscotch, or to keep up with the gang as they stroll the mall, or to just make it through the latest episode of Game of Thrones without falling asleep, what’s left?

Lots of sitting. Lots of wishing.

But that’s not what’s left.

What’s left is CHANGE.

What’s left is a life of fervor and vigor. And enough energy that THEY won’t be able to keep up with YOU anymore.

And all it takes is you.

I know because I was you and all it took was me making up my mind that there was more to life than feeling lost and left behind.

I’m Gertraud and this is me way before the prime of my life. Heaviest Long Scrolling Test

When I left Germany in 1970 to study in Paris, I never would have imagined reaching the point you see in the picture above; 25 Pounds overweight, with a high blood pressure reading of 218/113, and sorely lacking my youthful joie de vivre. I was always full of life and passion. Long after I met a certain young man on holiday in London ,in 1974, and for most of our 41 years of marriage.

But when I saw this picture of myself, on my 60th birthday, I knew that I’d gotten lost. I knew that I had to make a change. As a proud Oma to my children and grandchildren, I knew that I couldn’t allow myself to stay in that shape anymore.

In my defense (because there’s always a reason, yes?), the trigger that lead me o that moment was disastrous (we all have our own tragic stories, don’t we?). We lost our life’s work back in 2008/2009 and it was up to me to decide to make it better or be the victim.

You see what I chose.

Not easily, though. It took me two years of constant battles with myself to pull me from those depths.

And in June 2010, when I celebrated my 60th birthday I was stressed to the limit and feeling like I didn’t want to celebrate at all. I’d most certainly lost the joie de vivre I always had. My birthday photos were a clear indication that I had to do something to put things right. So I did.

And I made some progress.

But, then fell back again.

That’s an awful feeling, isn’t it? To succeed and then lose, especially knowing that you had it in you to maintain…but I digress because it’s all part of the path.

But September 2012 marked the beginning of using Unicity International products. Half-heartedly, I must admit.

Almost exactly a year later in September 2013, the turning point came, triggered by a few words spoken to me in Park City in Utah.

The seeds of transformation were planted.

And November 2013? I recorded a new weight of 149 lbs and a blood pressure of 160/90.

This was a massive achievement, validating that small consistent adjustments and never giving up are the keys to long term better health. It was exhilarating. To finally have evidence that what I was doing was working.

It didn’t stop there. In June 2014 on my 64th birthday, I tipped a another record weight of 145 lbs and a blood pressure of 148/85. YES!

My body monitor read my body age was 49.

Who would have thought it possible to shave 15 years off my age in just 12 months of maintenance of a new habit.

NEW LEASE ON LIFE? NO, I OWN IT!

This led me eventually to start my own “Transform U” and on October 24th, 2014. I began my ultimate 90-Day Challenge, a program unique to Unicity International to help individuals to achieve their Prime Health (emphasis is on health, not just weight loss), working with a Unicity-trained personal health coach to finally achieve my biggest goals.

I did, I lost a further 9 pounds and shaved 7 inches off my waist. I truly felt better than I felt in my body in my entire life. Just like the marketing industry has led everyone to believe we can feel, but this is me. I now know what all the hype is about. I now know the hype? Is anything but.

My energy is through the roof on a daily basis. I run marathons at the ripe age of 65. I get up because I don’t want to lay around in bed, wasting the minutes of the day. I take care of my grandchildren and I feel like, well, a SUPER woman.

Because I chose me. Because I chose creating health. Because I stuck to it, even when I didn’t want to, especially in the beginning.

Our passion is best spent on doing the things we love, not avoiding the things we don’t.

I’m here to help you make choosing you easy, too. To help you decide and support your decision to maintain the course to Prime Health. To keep you motivated and strengthened because the path through Unicity makes it the easiest decision you will have ever made.

My story is one I hold dear. And, now, in 2016, I’m a Network Marketing PRO on a mission to Make Life Better. For me. For you. For anyone ready to take on their own health and make it their priority again.

Because the old adage “the best is yet to come” is the absolute and verifiable truth. The present makes the future happen, so it’s never too late to Transform U…a belief I have lived my entire life, even when the times were rough.

I do what I do because I believe.

I believe in myself.

I believe in you.

I believe writing a new story is simply the beginning of a life full of joie de vivre. Will you join me in writing your new and best story yet?

It’s time to write your new story

The story of your success

(And loss)
