My New Healthy Start!!


Herbalife Level 1 Beginner plan

   So I have decided to take my health serious now. Since 2008, I have let my health and weight just plummet. I ate whatever, whenever. Literally!! So now at 27 years old I want to take a completely different stand, which is a stand for my health. I did a lot of inquiring around looking for the best diet that would fit my work schedules, between working corporate and being an entrepreneur my days get very hectic. My eye opener came when I looked at picture of me that was taken less than a year ago(my profile pic) and then looked at myself now and realized my face alone I didn't recognize me. So one of my classmates from grade school was on his Facebook showing the results of him losing weight on Herbalife and his results were amazing. So I contacted him and asked him the benefits and side effects to Herbalife. He also is a distributor for Herbalife and for his clients he offers a fitness camp called Grind Time Fitclub where he focus on cardio, strengthening, and proper dieting. The Herbalife diet which consist of Level 1, 2, & 3 nutrition, shakes, herbals, vitamins, teas, and fiber/protein snacks.

Senior year 2004- 132 lbs 

   I haven't always been my ideal weight. From birth I dealt with weight issues and it has always been a big issue for me. When I began middle school I was chubby and overweight for my age. So in the 7th grade I began to play sports, Volleyball and Basketball was my sports of choice. Within months I lost the excess weight and had my peers around me wondering what did I do to get the weight off. Lets just say I didn't eat big meals and I only ate one time a day. Not proper dieting for a teenager, but I was enjoying the results. By my
Senior Year 2004- 132 lbs
high school era I was small and wasn't worried about dieting or keeping fit even though I played volleyball, basketball, and track & field my weight was never an issue. My freshman year at Prairie View A&M University I gained 15lbs not the normal freshman 10lbs, sophomore year I gained another 15lb and didn't even recognize myself at the end of the year. In the summer of 2006, after my sophomore year I made a change about how I was treating my body. So I went on diet that I once was on my senior year of high school when I needed to drop the extra weight to be on the starting lineup for the volleyball season. So I start back taking Stacker 3 XPLC to help with my cravings and appetite. It work, I lost all of the 30lbs plus that I gained those two years in six months. At the end of 2007 I became pregnant again, but the first was a miscarriage and I didn't gain any with that pregnancy even though I was 3 1/2 months when I lost my baby in April 2007. I gained 20lbs by March 1st, 2008 and since that pregnancy I been on the downfall with my weight. I have a gained a total of 113lbs in 5yrs and with that weight gain came depression, isolation, and self-esteem issues. I have clothes that I have bought and haven't popped the tags on.





January 2013- 232 lbs





February 2011- 210 lbs  





So Herbalife was my final choice after sorting through numerous diet plans trying to see which one fits me well.. Right now I am into week five of my diet. Week 1, I lost a total of 5lbs, which I believe was water weight but hey no complaints I will take it. Lol! Then in the beginning of week five I ran out of product, so I had a minor setback but maintained my diet. So as of right now I have lost a total of 10 lbs. Which I am proud of myself but I know I can do better if I make the proper adjustments and time to get my much needed workouts in. That's seems to be my biggest issue is finding time to get my workouts in, since my schedule is so hectic. Below are some of the foods I eat along with my favorite exercise machine. When I do workout its for 45 mins on the machine, 3 reps of 10 with upper body arm machines, 150 crunches, and 25 lunges, and fitness camp every Mon/Tues evening, and Fri morning. So this is a beginning to a NEW ME, NEW LIFE, and WONDERFUL TIMES.
