Transformations

Meet Sue T.

Listen to me, my friend. If you have spent years wondering why you just can’t lose weight; you’ve been on every diet imaginable only to gain it all back and more; you’re obsessed with food and can’t get enough; you’re constantly hungry even if you have just eaten copious amounts of food without feeling satisfied; you feel terrible about yourself and like you are a continued failure because you can’t successfully lose weight and keep it off; you travel from place to place trying to satisfy that craving you can never satisfy; and you berate yourself for not being able to control your eating…well then, WELCOME HOME. You have just found the answer to what you have been looking for all your dieting life. The answer is Bright Line Eating.

Once I joined Bright Line Eating, you know what I found out? I found out that I am not different, bad, an oddball, a failure, or a loser. I have an allergy of the body when eating sugar and flour, and coupled with the obsession of the mind, I cannot stop eating food. It is not a moral weakness. The answers are in understanding my brain. The Bright Line Eating program is grounded in brain Science that explains why all my so-called solutions did not work. Bright Line Eating and Susan Peirce Thompson helped me to understand my brain and why I turn into Jekyll and Hyde when I eat sugar and flour. BLE has been teaching me how to heal my brain.

I came into Bright Line Eating on September 29, 2019 because of three physicians warning me that my life was in jeopardy from diabetes, heart attack, stroke, and congestive heart failure. My weight was 235 pounds, and I am 5’2″. I also suffered from asthma and severe digestive disorders. I could not walk down my stairs to get my mail without excruciating pain, even with two total knee replacements. I distanced myself from all my friends because of how I looked, and the depression I had been experiencing my whole life had become so powerful that I wanted to die.

I was ashamed of myself because I have been sober and in AA for 41 years, but I was still unable to get a grip over my food, even with a 12-step program. I stood at a turning point. Try this or die. A friend of mine sent me the Susceptibility Quiz, and once I took it, I knew this program was for me because I was a 10+++ on the scale. I immediately joined the Boot Camp and lost considerable weight. I was not hungry, and I began to feel better about myself.

I found a community of people that were just like me, and because of healing my brain, my life is truly transformed. I eventually joined Bright Lifers and Bright Line Grit, and I dove headfirst into physical, mental, and spiritual healing. I am now on my second round of being a Gideon Games Team Leader, helping others like myself stay bright and happy. I am beginning to see more of the positives than the negatives. As of August 22, 2020, I have given up 76.8 pounds. I currently weigh 158.6 pounds with another 33 to go, but I am now on a fabulous journey of self-discovery.

All my digestive issues are gone, and I no longer take any medication for stomach problems. I can walk without pain and I am beginning to become active. I have dreams of hiking and traveling to places I have never been. My asthma is nearly non-existent. I still suffer from depression, but I am recovering as my brain and body heal. Food is my medicine, not my comfort. I have purpose, I am worthy, and I matter. I am learning what self-care looks like. I am happy and I feel free. I am beginning to live in the body of which I have been given. I am thin. I am no longer obsessed with food, and I do not spend copious amounts of time, money, and self-esteem chasing foods that are poison to me. Thanks, BLE. I will forever be grateful to you ALL for helping me find a life worthwhile. My family and friends are grateful I am here.
