If You Get A Chance, Take It!

When God places something in your life that feels like a dream come true, it can be difficult to fully grasp the fact it's your new reality.  God is full of blessings with so many gifts just waiting for us if we'll humble ourselves, submit to Him, and place our trust in His plan for our lives.  I don't want to miss out on those blessings! 

Those of you who follow my blog on a regular basis are aware that things have really changed for me in the last four weeks!

  • I've completely stopped emotional eating
  • My metabolism and blood sugars are regulated
  • I'm eating only when I'm truly hungry 
  • My portions have decreased a considerable amount
  • I'm viewing food as fuel and am not focused on food all the time
  • My moods are great
  • I have so much energy
  • My will power is much stronger
  • I'm craving better foods and bad foods don't seem as appealing
  • I've lost an average of 2.5 pounds each week while eating foods of my choice and working out (doing Zumba) just once a week
  • My clothes that were just a little too tight four weeks ago are now loose

Each one of these are dreams I'm achieving!  I know without a doubt God is behind this... my life seems so different.  I feel like the chains that have kept me in bondage to food have been broken!  It's the best feeling!

Earlier this year when I was struggling with chronic pain, I received a care package of from a wonderful woman with a heart for God after hearing His voice leading her to reach out in my time of need.  She sent me several products from Plexus and I began taking them once I was able to safely work out again, on August 26.

I didn't share this on my blog because I wasn't sure how the products would work, I didn't know enough to feel comfortable leading others to it, and I'm never looking to promote things on my blog or Facebook page.  So I gave them a chance and continued in my journey.  Little did I know how effective they would be and how quickly I would see a difference!  I spent a considerable amount of time researching the products to understand more, to determine if they were safe, and read the testimonies of other real people who have experienced terrific health benefits, including weight loss.

Not only did I research, I spent a lot of time in prayer with God about it.  It was so frequently on my mind and I wanted to be sure it was God's voice I was hearing!  The more I read and prayed, the more comfortable I felt about it.  

My first concern, however, was how you would feel when I shared this with you.  I knew I couldn't, and wouldn't want to, keep this to myself, but I also never want to compromise your trust in me or make you feel as though you've been tricked somehow.  You have no idea how much I value that you take time out of your busy lives to read a word about my life; my struggles, my victories, my mishaps, and my blessings.  You are a blessing to me by caring, alone, and you support, encourage, and inspire me to keep going no matter what!  My other concern is that those who know me personally could feel as though I didn't care enough to tell them what was helping me.  I certainly wasn't keeping a secret from you, I just wanted to know more and see results firsthand before sharing!

After the first three weeks of amazing results, I followed God's lead to become a Plexus ambassador, if for no other reason than to get the products at a discounted rate.  But seeing how well it worked for me, I just can’t keep it to myself.  I don’t feel it would be fair to continue down the road to my dreams and not share with others a major factor in my success!

One thing I will vow to you is that 'Overweight... AND OVER IT!' will not become a platform for me to promote Plexus products.  I may mention it on occasion, but this blog will remain a place for me to share how I fulfill my dreams and overcome life's adversity!  I am committed to helping you overcome your struggles and want to continue to encourage you as you achieve your dreams.  We're in this together!

To share my experiences and things I learn about Plexus, I created a new blog called 'Overweight... AND LOSING IT with Plexus!'.  If you’d like to learn more about Plexus, visit my Plexus site, and I encourage you to do some research of your own!   I hope you know this about me by now, but the last thing I will ever do is try to convince anyone that something is right for them.  I believe each decision a person makes should come from their heart, without feeling pressured or tricked into it.  If you don't desire to take supplements, rock on!  If you're currently using products that are working for you, terrific!  If you want to give Plexus a try, that's fabulous, too!  No matter what you decide, I'll continue to pray God's comfort, guidance, direction, and blessings in your life.  

I hope you'll stay on this 'Overweight... AND OVER IT!' journey with me!  You mean SO much and you make me SO happy!!!
