Brought Home a Travel Baby!!

Two things happened on our travels that made me take a step back at look at myself and realized I was not happy the way things were going.

The first thing that happened was I turned 48, not that I started to freak out that time was slipping away. I didn’t go off and buy a shiny red convertible, get a fake tan or dye my hair an unnatural shade.

I just wasn’t looking anything like I recalled. I now have a few grey hairs and time is showing in certain areas of my body. Gone is the smooth skin, lines are appearing and areas are dimpling. I am not ready for dimply thighs I can tell you that.

Coupling that with the fact that I have gained 15 pounds on this year of travel and over indulgence. These extra 15 pounds did not help my mental state. Being a tiny person, I have always weight between 107 to 110 pounds. So stepping on the scale and seeing the number rise to 125 pounds took a piece of my soul.

After standing there staring at myself wondering ‘When did this happen?’, I decided to face the issue head on. It was time to get back to a normal work out that included cardio, weights, and yoga. So, I dragged Dirk to a gym I thought would be motivating and made him join. Now the weight will fly off, or so I thought.

I decided I needed rules to help my progress. Keep in mind, once I make rules, Dirk has no choice but to to follow. Such as, less eating out and more home cooked meals. Alcohol intake was restricted to only one or twice a week. That one stung a lot, but even after all that, I only lost 4 pounds! The scale and I began to develop an unhealthy relationship.

Next I decided to do ‘Dry January’ and get reinforcements. That’s when I turned to my friend that was selling It Works products to help my progress. After an amazing conversation, I never felt that motivated to actual leave my comfort zone.  I signed up as a distributor and impatiently waited for my products to arrive.

It has now been over three weeks using my It Works products and I am seeing such an incredible difference. I drink the greens every morning and have so much more energy during the day. Added benefit, it also help reduce my appetite between meals. But the big change was using their crazy wraps. I was already doing all the right things to lose the weight, but these wraps helped tone, tighten and smooth my skin. I made Dirk take pictures of my progress and record my measurements.  In two weeks I was able to shrink my belly 3 inches!! I had seen so many pictures with great results, but for some reason never thought it would happen to me.

I have decided to share my results with everyone. This was a hard decision for me, as it shows me in what I feel is my most vulnerable state. The one thing this has done for me is not only make feel attractive again, but made me very proud to be an It Works Distributor.
