Have You Seen Dr. Renee?
Dr. Renee you are disappearing…..Several months ago I used the hashtag #IncredibleShrinkingDoc well I finally believe it. The before picture above was taken March 14, 2017 and I have never been so uncomfortable at a photo shoot in my life. I saw the pics and immediately text Austin Julian Davis (my photographer) and asked if he could photoshop that second chin out of the pic. March 31, 2017 I started an eating plan that has changed my life. I don’t think I have been this size since college. The truth is I haven’t been this small in 20 years.
Why Did I Do It?
Everyone knows that I do a lot of camera work and they say that the camera puts on 10lbs. I am convinced it puts on 30lbs!! When I was just sitting doing my interviews in front of my step and repeat. I noticed the second chin. When I started doing “Out of Office with Dr. Renee” I noticed the fat everywhere else. The second thing I noticed was, my lower back was hurting because my butt was getting to big. I am too young to be in pain like that from just walking from room to room.
How Did I Do It?
One of my friends was posting daily weight loss and I asked her what she was doing. She said HCG drops and no carbs no sugar, I didn’t think it was possible when she said it. And then I realized I had no choice but to try and see what happened. I LOVE BREAD but I went 3 months no carbs no sugar oh and no dairy (I can easily drink 2 gallons of skim milk a week). My drops have B-12 in them that helped me with my energy level. I was lazy at the beginning and didn’t exercise. But, I finally jumped on that bandwagon the last part of the summer. Now I can be found walking thru whatever city I am in, I walk a minimum of 6 miles a day, and on average at least 10K steps a day. If you have a Fitbit please find me and lets get in a challenge!! If you are interested in trying the drops you can check them out here coupon code ReneeMatthews. Also please feel free to send me any questions you have.

I entered Onederland today! The scale no longer reads 200+ lbs!! Haven’t been here in YEARS!! As my client Allyson Scrutchens says, “only forward movement”. I am so grateful to this journey. All that walking has given me lots of time to reflect on how I got to the before picture and how I will not go back there. This worked for me because it taught me the discipline I needed to get the job done. I am a much healthier happier person now. I thankfully did not have any medical conditions due to obesity but I know that if I continued I would have eventually. Please find what works for you and make sure you are treating your body like the temple that it is. Feel free to join my facebook group for support. Just remember to please #LiveLifeYouDeserve NOW!!
