Hi my name is Kellie Long, and I’m here at Next and I started on September 1 st .
I have to tell you all, you’re going to be skeptical probably in the beginning, as I was. I was pretty much at the end of my rope as far as my A1C, it was over 8. I believe it was like, 8.6, my sugar was at 250. And I’ve been battling this for eight years and pretty much ignored most of it.
Until, a lot of symptoms started changing my life and my lifestyle. So I began with Next on the first of September. My husband heard about this program on KFI and he was really drawn to it and asked if I wanted to go to a free seminar so, skeptically, I told him yes. And they day came, and he said, ‘well, are we going to go?’ and I said well, I don’t know. And he said, ‘well, I really think that we should.” So I said okay, so we went. I was moved and motivated. Was I convinced? No. But as I said, I was at the end of my rope and my time of trying to find something to make me feel better.
I was tired all of the time, neuropathy in my feet, and stinging. I run my own business and you have to be motivated and energetic in order to have a successful business. So I went ahead and signed up, came in.
My first month was tough, but it was rewarding. There were nights when I felt like crying, and my husband kept telling me, ‘just hang in there, Kellie, it is getting better.”
My first blood test went from 250 on my sugar to 185. And today, I’m celebrating because it has gone down to 139! And my A1C is 6.1, maybe a little off but it is basically around the 6’s. I feel like celebrating tonight. I think I’m going to have me some vegetables or protein. But this is something worthy. And I believe that if you are skeptical, you feel like not drinking the koolaid, as I told my husband. I said, I’m going to try it.
I believe that you should definitely believe in the staff here. They’re friendly, they’re helpful, and they’ve been motivating and supportive to me and my needs. And have customized my program. And have brought out a lot of information, I now read labels more than I ever have in my life. And you, too, can learn how to have a better lifestyle. And to add icing on the cake we do not eat, I have lost about 20 pounds.
So, that is even better. I am feeling better, my feet are better, more feeling at the bottom of my feet, and I have an overall positive attitude. So I hope today, you will join. And it is good to network. I have had people ask me for my number, just meeting them in the hall. You can tell by the office that it is a good buzz and everybody is excited and motivated and wants to share their story. Feel free to talk to each other and support one another.
