NSFW: I Had Never In My Life Felt Rejection Like This

In 2016 I had the chance to go down to Sydney and pitch my business to possible investors. The whole thing looked like the TV show ‘Shark Tank’. I walked into this room with around 20 people in it, all highly successful snooty business people.

A grey-haired man with his glasses on the tip on his nose looked down at me and snarled “you have 5 minutes to convince us all why we should care about you and your business”. I was really taken aback by how intimidated this whole thing was set up to be. This was the chance of a lifetime (or so I thought) for me.

 

Around 30 seconds into my pitch I froze, literally a word wouldn’t come out of my mouth, I went bright red out of sheer embarrassment and disappointment. The man broke the silence with “please go now”.

 

As I walked out of the room these people, human beings with feelings like my own laughed at me. They were laughing at everything I had built, all the hours I put in, this is my dream, this is how I provide for my family. To them though, I was nothing.

 

Moral of the story: 3 years and my dreams are in a better position than ever so fuck anyone who ever laughs at you, makes fun of you, doesn’t believe in you, discourages you, puts you down. Fuck them. Never stop living the life you want to.

Drew cuts nothing out. The method gives you that perfect balance of carbs, fat, and sugar. Before I would eat my chicken, rice, and broccoli and feel good, and then eat something bad later and be filled with self-loathing.

On this programme, I can eat goat's cheese carbonara - which I had the other evening - healthy homemade chocolate and pasta, it's all about moderation. I love myself now. I don't pick at things I hate, I eat what I enjoy

My advice to anyone on this program is just to stick with it. Keep going. Don't beat yourself up for a slip-up, pick up and keep going. It gets easier with time. Love yourself always, even when you don't like yourself that much, you can and will do it! Talk to others and don't be afraid to say how you are feeling. Thank you for the opportunity to tell my story.

For about 2 months the DBF program just kept popping up on my news feed. I kept putting off joining until I saw a picture of myself at my cousin's wedding.  This photo finally got me to sign up and I haven't looked back. Its been so much easier then I thought it would be.

I sleep better, my skin is clearer and I've also found an outlet for when I'm anxious or stressed. I can't thank Drew, his team and everyone else that is going through this program as well. There is so much support in this group it makes this journey so much easier.

The great thing is my perception of myself has now changed dramatically. I no longer look at myself with self-loathing when I try on clothes. What was once a chore is now something I really enjoy. I have more confidence to go out and mix with other people and the DBF way has just become a part of my lifestyle now.

For anyone who is doubting themselves I say keep going, what have you got to lose apart from all the things you don't like? What have you got to gain? Everything that you always wanted to be! Just go for it, like me, you will be so glad you did!

My whole way of thinking about food has changed and I now make healthier choices without even realizing it and this is the first time on a diet that I have actually changed my way of thinking. I still have my cheat meal every Saturday night and that will continue as this is my new way of eating.

 

Thank you, Drew and all the team for everything you have done for me on my journey, if it wasn’t for your guidance, support and those coaching calls I don’t think I would have done it.

I am enjoying this journey immensely.Yes, there are hard days, but my achievements are so rewarding. I was an emotional eater, now I’m boosting with energy, feel great in everything I wear and my confidence has got me feeling amazing. No negativity is going to sabotage my journey. I have turned 51 and health wise I was having all sorts of issues. So can’t thank you all enough for teaching me what I know now.

The thing I find best about this program is that is isn't all about losing weight its a whole lifestyle change! Mind, body, and soul.
