'This is not about getting beautiful, you already are. This is about getting healthy.'
At 5'4" and 220 pounds, I knew I wasn't healthy.
After having two kids 16 months apart, I fell into a mindset that gave me permission to stop caring about myself. I believed the lies that it didn't matter what I ate or how I looked because a woman's body changes after delivering eights pounds of screaming bliss into the world...twice. I knew my husband loved me, no matter how I looked, and I started to believe that was good enough. I lived to eat and consequently felt like crap -- no energy, no self-confidence and even less motivation. I'd stay in my pajamas all day. I struggled with envy and jealousy towards thinner moms. It was not a healthy state of being, physically or emotionally.
When I read that quote above, something in me just said "GO FOR IT!" I didn't second-guess the purchase. I knew I had to do Shaklee 180, and I am so glad I did. In 10 months of sticking to the program, I lost 80 pounds.* After a bit of a plateau, I'm happy to report I've continued my journey and have now lost a total of 95 pounds and nine inches around my waist!* Above all, I know I am healthy! Now I eat to live and as a result I feel alive -- energetic, inspired and motivated to help others.
My Shaklee 180 story started with me alone and "ends" though it will never be over - with a healthier husband, children, friends, family and way beyond. As I share my story with others and grow my Shaklee business, I know how many lives we can touch simply by working hard, choosing Shaklee 180, and having a little determination!
