My Sister Tori & I had the honor of being featured as the cover story in Woman’s World Magazine this week. We were able to give a small look into part of our weight loss journeys. Unfortunately some of the details are inaccurate and the overall timeline of the story is wrong.
Of course, I had no control over what would be published but if I did one thing I would change is the cover. No, not the picture even though the thumbs up IS pretty cheesy.
#1 I would change the cover claim that this plan or ANY plan is a “miracle” plan. I feel like that word over promises and gives the illusion that it is magic. It is not magic, and no plan is.
#2 The cover claims the plan melts 11 pounds in a week. I personally have never in my life, whether on the show or after the show have lost 11 pounds in one week on ANY plan. Also, from my experience losing weight as fast as possible should not be the goal.
#3 They say on the cover that the plan makes it “EASY” to stay slim for life. There is nothing easy about losing weight or keeping it off. It requires a lot of effort mentally and physically.
Everyone finds their own path. I am here to give my perspective and experience. I will never claim to know it all or be exactly where I want to be. I am doing the best I can each day and continue to learn and grow on every step of my personal journey through life. I certainly never want to be part of an illusion that weight loss is quick and easy. It never is.
The message I do want to spread is that change is possible and there is hope. No matter where you are today, you can get healthier, stronger, and closer to where you want to be.
All in all, it was such a blessing to be able to share this cover with my incredible sister who I love with all my heart. If you want to check out the article, you can pick it up this week.
