January 07, 2016 2 min read

With the help of gastric bypass surgery, in just 12 months, Nikki Webster has achieved incredible levels of weight loss. While she is pleased with this progress, she says she's far from finished. Buoyed by these initial results, Webster considers herself only halfway to her target. 650pound Before her surgery, the simplest tasks in life were difficult for her. Standing and washing herself were near impossible. Webster says, "My weight is debilitating. My body is so painful, I hate it. But I say this to myself. Food is an addiction to me and my addiction is killing me." After travelling 8 hours for a consultation, she learned that she would have to lose 50 pounds before the surgery could even take place. It took 3 months, but she got there and the surgery went ahead. 650pound3 [bctt tweet="650 Pound Food Addict Lost A Third Of Her Body Weight After Gastric Surgery"] Before the procedure, Webster admitted to being a food addict. Despite fearing that it would cost her her life, she could not stop binge eating. "I've done this to myself," she says. Because of her weight, Webster lives with her parents who enable her addiction. "When I start my day, I can't wait to start eating," she explains. "My mom or dad will make me a plate and send it up to me so I don't have to go downstairs until breakfast." 650pound2 To make sure that she didn't regain any weight she'd lost, Webster met with a therapist. As many of us know, our desire to eat food can have significant and deep-rooted emotional triggers. If you do not address these, the harmful cycle will likely continue. While she hasn't reached her target, Webster should be commended for the work she's put in so far. It won't be easy, but it sounds like she's got everything moving in the right direction! She's given herself a real chance at having a life! Kudos, Nikki! What do you think of Nikki's inspiring progress?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
