"I have high blood pressure and in January it spiked up way, way high," Connie says. "I had a lot of different things going on. I was moving and January is the toughest time of year for my job. My challenge was to get my blood pressure back down. Not only did I do that, but I was able to get off my blood pressure medication entirely."
Before the fitness challenge, Connie's blood pressure measured in at 163 over 106 - an extremely high figure. Her readings consistently improved throughout the challenge, including a reading of 115 over 70 - leaps and bounds better than when she began.
Not only was the blood pressure benefit a help, but losing the weight also made a difference in other areas of Connie's life as well.
"Once I got off the blood pressure medication, I could exercise easier," Connie says. "I know you're healthier if you weigh less and I got to where I wasn't having pain from inflammation even. When you're older, you get inflammation throughout your body and you hurt everywhere. It is really miserable. And it aches. I got to where I didn't have aches and pains anymore."
Her weight loss strategy was equal parts AIM products, healthy eating and exercise. Already taking a long list of products, Connie added ProPeas® and fit 'n fiber® in a regular smoothie. Her breakfasts, lunches and dinners included smoothies, fruit, vegetables, and protein. She cut out sweets entirely and she made a goal to walk every day.
At the end of the fitness challenge, Connie had lost twenty pounds and five-and-a-half inches off her waist.
For Connie, AIM products have been an important part of her life for years. Before she found The AIM Companies™, Connie had a thyroid condition that severely impacted her health and lifestyle.
"I could hardly function pre-AIM," Connie says. "I remember sitting at my desk and thinking, 'I don't know if I can get myself home.' Thankfully someone told me about AIM supplements. I got started on Herbal Fiberblend and BarleyLife and I'll tell you what, it turned my life around."
"I was a totally different person after that. It just gave me that cell energy that they talk about. I was like, 'Woohoo!' It was wonderful. And I've said to people, I think it saved my life. I could hardly do anything until I started BarleyLife and Herbal Fiberblend."
