It was frustrating for her to get on a scale and she nothing was lost.
A friend introduced her to Zi Xiu Tang, a weight loss supplement made of 18 natural Chinese ingredients including bee pollen. She says within 3 months of beginning to take the pills she lost over 35 pounds and 14 inches.
Due to her success she began selling the product and over 4,000 people are fans of her "bee xtreme" Facebook page.
Results from the pill will vary and there is no large medical study for the product. They do suggest you take the ingredient list to your doctor before starting the diet.
Since January Sweeney has not taken a pill. She has kept the weight off with ZUMBA and her instructor has a weight loss story of her own.
Jenn Marsico was 245 pounds 3 years ago. She was engaged to be married when she started ZUMBA for the first time. She says she was hooked.
Now, she has dropped 85 pounds. She says she started teaching to hold herself accountable and to give to others what was given to her. She holds classes twice a week at Sun Spot Tanning and Fitness in Reynoldsville.
She says she also changed her eating and no longer eats the leftovers from her kid’s plates.
Both women say they feel better than ever.
WTAJ is not endorsing either diet chose, but wanted to share two successful stories.
Both women say no matter what way you chose to lose weight, just start!
