checking the job opportunities available at the end of my first year of studies, we revised our thought process, and I started to prepare for a career in nursing despite tremendous odds against my making it into the program. I had been out of school for more than eleven years before returning, was starting a program that demanded a high level of excellence to even get accepted, and was studying in a language that was not my native tongue.
Pictured above with me is a friend who was in some of my classes and was a great encouragement to me as I made this journey. Finally, after two years of late nights and much study and lots of encouragement and prayers by my husband and sons, I received my acceptance into the program. Although I am only a little over halfway through this journey, a tremendous hurdle has been cleared. Of more than five hundred students who applied for the program, only eighty were accepted. I am thrilled to be entering the program. I know there are difficult times ahead, but with the Lord's help, I know I can finish the journey.

Approximately seven months ago, I started using a supplementary diet system more for the benefits that it claimed to provide for overall health than for weight loss. The weight loss did come, however, as can be seen above. The upper photo shows me at the beginning of my first week of taking Yoli, and the lower photo shows me after the second week. Although I was able to lose my stomach very quickly, perhaps the greatest improvement was my energy levels; previously I had been feeling so wrung out and weary. I struggled to maintain activity until 9:00 P.M. when I would drop into bed, exhausted. After beginning the Yoli regimen, I noticed a significant uptick in my energy levels, and a definite increase in my stamina. First I noticed it in my ability to maintain a good degree of physical activity far beyond my former capability. Then after the school year began in the fall, I found I was able to study into the wee hours of the morning. Needless to say, that was extremely important during a semester that required more study time than I had previously had to put out. Additionally, I was able to completely stop using vitamins and herbs that had been prescribed by a doctor along with prescription medication to alleviate migraines that would cause horrible bouts of dizziness. Even my husband agrees that my health has greatly improved since taking Yoli.

It has been ten years ago that I was hastily helping my husband put together the plans for our wedding. Arriving in the United States from the Philippines in late October, I had just over one month to prepare for a wedding celebration in a strange land with different customs than those with which I was familiar. Needless to say, that was an unforgettable month of frenzied activity filled with stress. Fortunately, my husband-to-be helped me as much as possible; however, a good Wedding caterer would have been greatly appreciated.
