It all started when Renae Owens was on the train to work. It was packed with people due to morning rush hours.
Suddenly, Renae felt a hand brush her behind. She ignored it at first, thinking it was just an accident, but she felt the pressure against her increase as time went on.
“Excuse me, STOP!” – Renae
She quickly turned around to face the offender. Her swiveling bumped the man behind her into the ground. The man became infuriated and started hurling insults at her for hurting him.
Renae was in disbelief. She told him that he had touched her inappropriately.
The man scoffed at her:
“Who would want to touch someone like YOU?”
“And even if I did, you should take it as a compliment.”
Murmurs of agreement by other commuters echoed around her. Renae felt her face flush with embarrassment.
“But it’s true! You groped me!” – Renae
But no one believed her; no one came to defend her. Instead, everyone started to take videos and pictures, recording the commotion between her and the man.
“I haven’t always been this big…”
“But being brought up by a single parent, my diet mostly consisted of cheap takeaways and fast food.”
“I don’t blame my mom; I wouldn’t be here without her. But I can’t take it anymore.” – Renae
The incident was the last straw for Renae. She vowed to lose the pounds, no matter what it took.
Renae tried all sorts of diets — Atkins, Paleo, Keto, Nutrisystem, Weightwatchers…
“But the weight clung to me like glue.”
“So, I spent thousands on gym classes.”
“But still, nothing worked.” – Renae
Without a way out, depression started to consume her. The situation worsened when photos and videos of her went viral online. Countless derogatory comments were thrown at her.
“It felt like the world came crashing down around me.”
“I couldn’t erase the incident and shame from my mind.” – Renae
It got to a point where she almost gave up her life.
That was until she heard the familiar jingle of her phone.
Picking up the call, she was surprised to hear the voice on the other end; it was her childhood best friend, Sofia. They had lost contact but through the viral posts, Sofia found Renae again.
Sofia’s familiar and comforting voice made Renae burst into tears.
“Hey, it’s okay. You’re not alone in this.”
“I believe in you.” – Sofia
With her best friend’s encouragement, Renae gave life another chance. Sofia even decided to fly to Renae to support her in person.
Renae could hardly recognize Sofia when they met. Sofia, who used to be double her size, had a slim figure.
“This is why I wanted to meet in person! I wanted to show you what helped me get rid of the stubborn flabs.” – Sofia
Sofia lifted her shirt to reveal a small square on her belly.
“It’s all thanks to this, Aveur™.” – Sofia
Aveur™ was invented by weight specialist Dr. Deval and his team. They have been working on Aveur™ for 7 years.
“It started with the desire to help our patients lose and maintain their weight. So, with safety, quick results, and convenience in mind, we developed Aveur™.”
“All you need to do is stick it on any area that needs shrinking and the natural active herbs infused in it will burn stubborn fats under the skin while suppressing appetite and accelerating metabolism.”
“Without any of your effort needed.” – Dr. Deval
Renae doubted it would work but with Sofia’s insistence, she decided to try it out.
She reflected on the incident that set her on this journey and decided that no one should experience what she did.
Renae decided to use her experience to initiate the #IBelieveYou movement in order to help others like her stand up for themselves against harassment.
“Every minute, someone is being harassed.”
“It doesn’t matter what size or shape you are. It can happen to anyone.”
“We need to be aware and be there for each other.”
“Because you might just be saving someone’s life by doing so.” – Renae
Renae’s remarkable journey is one of the many success stories of Aveur™.
Drop the extra weight holding you back. Set yourself free with Aveur™.
