    Waste=Weight-Discover Internal Harmony - Sherrine Washington

    If you remember just ONE THING from my presentation, I hope that you will remember that-Waste=Weight.  Grab a pen and pad and get ready for some serious note-taking!

    Call it a taboo topic or not, many weight loss surgery patients suffer from the inability to “take their trash out” aka CONSTIPATION.  Ignoring your eliminative organs could be the reason why that number on your scale is stuck, moving in the wrong direction, or the reason for those uncontrollable cravings that have you searching through your cupboards at night. 

    Don’t risk turning your inner terrain into a breeding ground full of toxic sludge that can lead to chronic diseases such as Cancer and even Parkinson's disease.

    44 million Americans rely on laxatives for elimination (Yikes!). Can we talk?  Join me for a REAL-NO FRILLS -Visual Demo where I teach you the #1 life changing protocol that solved this problem for me while studying at The Anne Wigmore Institute in Puerto Rico.

    (Attendees will receive my Brave Girl Cheat Sheet to Wellness including a special bonus valued at over $501  I will also be providing information on cancer-causing ingredient that might be in your favorite protein shake)
    See you there!   -S

    My name is Katie Rice, I had the gastric sleeve surgery on May 13th 2014 with Dr. Lemaitre. I have battled with obesity my entire life. I was always active in sports but I was always the biggest kid on the team.  Like most of us, I tried all the diets out there and nothing helped. After having my second ACL reconstruction surgery I knew that I had to make a change, and that change was having weight loss surgery. Weight loss surgery was the best decision that I have ever made for myself. I have taken this tool and run with it, I have done numerous 5k walks with the Weight Loss Surgery Racers. I have completed a 5k in Disneyland, Boston and Walt Disney World . I would have never imagined planning a trip around 5ks before my WLS. I also have gone back to school to get my second Masters degree in Human Resource Management... Read More →
