PS1000 Helped Me Lose Over 100 Pounds

Updated on June 18, 2016


If there is a diet that exists I can almost guarantee I’ve tried it. In my 28 years of life I’ve been on Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, the banana diet, the cabbage soup diet, and more. I’ve tried low carb, no carb, low calories, low fat, and more. Really, I could list about a million of the diet programs and fad diets that I’ve tried with the hopes of being slim. In the end, none of them worked and any weight loss I did achieve was almost always whisked away in a flash.

Finally at the age of 25 I had all but given up. But, as fate would have it I would end up finding something that would help me go from 255 pounds to 155 pounds (and counting) in just four months. That’s not a typo, that’s 100 pounds of weight loss and, yes, a whole new me (and wardrobe).

I want to share with everyone my amazing weight loss journey and what ultimately led me to become the person I’ve always wanted to be. It started out about a year ago and it wasn’t unlike any other year in my life really. But, first, a little bit of my background.

See, I’ve been overweight since I was a small child and I’ve always joked that my best friends were the edible kind. By the time I got out of high school I was breaching the scales at 215 pounds. A couple years later at age 20 I was tipping the scales at 225. Bound and determined to finally shed some weight I joined a gym. That’s when I met my husband Ted and really got motivated. After a year of dating Ted and working out like crazy at the gym while eating what I thought was the right way I weighed about 200 pounds and Ted proposed. Two months later I was married and weighed 205 on the day of our wedding (that photo still makes me gag).

Flash forward just a few short years (and tons of failed diets) later and I was almost 25 years old and an absolute heifer. About a week before my 25th birthday I stepped on the scales and almost cried when it didn’t stop until it hit 255 pounds. I had to do something and if not for me, then for Ted (who never said anything about my weight). On my birthday I decided to go for it and really buckle down. And so the journey began.

I started off going back to the gym as I had in the past and began to eat less. After dropping about ten pounds I was feeling okay about myself but was struggling while looking at all the skinny hot girls that would come through the gym door. I usually felt so bad about myself after a workout that I just left the gym to hang out with my best friends (the kind I could eat). I quickly gained back the ten pounds and after seven months of this self-destructive pattern I was right back at the 255 mark and depressed as could be. Then it happened.

One day my boss (who is more like my second mom) e-mailed me a link to a story just like mine with a note that read, “I hate seeing you like this, maybe this will help.” I clicked the link and found myself reading about a woman who struggled with weight her entire life. Instantly I connected and saw that she was praising a diet program called the PS1000 diet. My initial thoughts were, “Great, another diet program, how much will this cost me?” But as I continued to read I continued to gain interest.

I decided to conduct some research on the matter and read the synopsis of the PS1000 plan. Basically, the diet program was three separate phases and homed in on controlling the body’s hormones to keep it balanced and allow for a great deal of weight loss. I continued to read more and more about the diet program and the more I read the more I wanted to try it out. So, about four months ago I paid the $129.95 for the program and took to it with a full head of steam.

I did phase one for the first 60 days (they say you can do up to 90 days). During this time I took their drops that came with the program. These drops were made up of amino acids that helped keep my body in balance. That, combined with 1000 calories a day was seeing my weight drop off my body like it was allergic to me. At the end of my first month I was down 40 pounds to 215 and at the end of 60 days I weighed in at 165 (90 pounds lighter).* That meant I had lost an average of a pound and a half every day while on phase one!

Then I completed phase two which bumped my calories to 1500 per day and had me stop taking the drops. Phase two lasted for three weeks in which I began working out as I felt more confident going to the gym (it allows 250 more calories on workout days and has guides to help with exercising). By the end of the phase 1 was down another five pounds to 160 and was actually adding some muscle tone (new for me) to my body.

Now I am on the final phase of the ps1000 plan, which is simply a phase that is helping me maintain all the good habits I formed while on the diet program. That’s the trick! As I was losing weight on the diet program I was learning how to eat right and basically how to live a more fulfilling life without filling up my gut with junk food.

All my edible best friends are now a thing of the past and they have all been replaced with filling meals made up of the proper mix of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats (the good kind). I work out regularly and am four months into my new lifestyle and have lost 100 pounds (100.3 to be exact).*

I now weigh 155 pounds (154.7 to be exact) and have 15 more pounds to go before I reach my ultimate goal. I not only look great, but I feel great too. I was able to throw out all my old sweats and stretchy circus tent clothing and replace them with size 8 clothing (which are now getting loose). I am overflowing with confidence and I feel good that Ted finally has the slim wife he deserves. Speaking of Ted, he now refers to me as his “trophy wife” and at age 26 I have never looked better or felt better.

I think what my weight loss journey has taught me is that being fit is all about a lifestyle. I now know that I can’t cheat my way to weight loss success and that I have to stay on the right path for the rest of my life which is something I intend to do.

I hope this story will inspire others. Maybe a friend will give this story to others as my boss did for me. If you do read this, please take my experience to heart. You can achieve weight loss if you really want to, I know, because I did.

*Keep in mind that your results may vary.
