A mother of four and new business owner, AJ lived with chronic pain. She had joint pain, migraines, back pain and shoulder pain from an injury. She was chronically tired, and she only got about 4 hours of sleep per night.
Browsing Netflix one night for something to entertain them, AJ and her boyfriend came across “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.” They watched it on a whim, and became inspired! The very next day, AJ started her first ever Reboot and transformed her health and life. AJ, Dunsmuir, CA
I just started my own business: Precious Thoughts Gift Baskets. I make homemade gift baskets and sell online and deliver around my area. I decided to go into business for myself because I wanted to do something to stay close to my children.
I have four kids: 2, 10, 14 and 17 years old. I have a very supportive boyfriend of four years. He moved from New Orleans two years ago to be with me and my kids.
One night, my boyfriend and I were looking through Netflix for a movie to watch. We saw “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.” We figured, “Why not?”
After watching it, we saw the second movie “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2.” We were inspired! I was very moved by Joe and the others in the documentary. I was in tears.
That night, we sat there talking for hours. We really started looking at our lifestyle. I knew that, after all the diets I had already tried, that this was the lifestyle change I needed!
I told him, “I would love to do it. I need to do it.” After that, my boyfriend immediately ordered a juicer!
The next day we went to the grocery store and bought vegetables and fruits. We researched for days into Joe Cross and juicing. That was the start of my new, improved and healthier lifestyle.
On my 68th day of juicing, I took some pictures and compared them to my first day picture of juicing. That blew my mind! I never took any other pictures between day 1 and day 68.
I lost 50 pounds!* I WAS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PERSON! I loved it. I was in tears and just shocked.
I enjoy hiking, swimming, jogging, and most of all, being outdoors with my family. Now that I am healthier and slowly getting back into these things, it’s been wonderful.
I used to have major headaches, back and shoulder pain (from an injury). All of that is totally gone.* Joint pains are no longer an issue. I can breathe better and move better.*
I used to only sleep for 3-4 hours a night. Now I get 7-8 hours of sleep. It’s amazing, and life changing!
I wish I knew about the benefits of juicing. Why didn’t someone tell me about this before? Why didn’t I find out earlier?
It’s been an amazing journey! I’m eating a plant-based diet now, and I plan on sticking with a vegan diet. All plant-based foods are what I want, and what my body needs.
This has been the best experience in my life and I am very thankful for coming across “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.”
