When I think of this I get so EXCITED!
I LOST 40LBS AND 40″ FROM MY BODY – AND – I HAVE PCOS & HYPOTHYROIDISM!!!
Im still somewhat in disbelief that I did this… for YEARS I struggled. I would yo-yo back and forth, my physical and emotional health was in jeopardy.
A part of me was scared though. Change is difficult – especially physical change. Truth be told, I didn’t take “before” pictures because I didn’t think it was going to “work”. It took me 2 years to be ready to do a “Cleanse and Restore” and yet its the simplest thing ever!
For those of you who have any kind of invisible illness you will understand its more than just how we physically feel – its our emotions that dictate a lot of what we do, how we feel and how we live our daily life.
BUT I FREAKING DID IT!!!
Hypothyroidism, PCOS, Endometriosis, IBS and all!!!
I DID IT!!!
Whats interesting though is since I did my measurements last weekend and shared my fabulous results in a Facebook Live – Ive noticed Ive still been critical of my body. My “c-section tummy” being a big focus… I actually stopped myself yesterday and literally said to myself in the mirror – What the hell are you thinking?!
Not only has your body gotten pregnant, twice, its also delivered two healthy beautiful children – one by an emergency c-section and one not even 18 months later by VBAC. My “c-section tummy” reminds me of a very hard decision and of my first amazing blessing who came into my life. Without this “tummy” my boy may not be here – SO I am freaking proud of my “c-section tummy”! But its something I know I need to remind myself of all the time.
For anyone who has been through invisible illnesses and infertility you can understand the incredible emotional trauma and hurt one goes through. Yes even many years later. What I am growing through is that this journey has made me into the person I am today. Along my journey there have been people who haven’t stood by me, who haven’t understood or chosen to support me when I needed it most. However there have been ones who have and I can honestly say I am feeling so very blessed, grateful and fortunate to where my journey has brought me today!
Today I am feeling lighter – Physically and Emotionally. I am SO incredibly thankful to these high quality, high vibration essential oils and supplements which have helped to bring my body and mind into balance.
My first Cleanse and Restore was in January/February 2017. I began my 2nd Cleanse and Restore in October/November 2017. By the time I began the 2nd cleanse my weight loss was about 35lbs! Yes 35lbs that I lost AND kept off!!! After this Cleanse and Restore my total weight loss is 40lbs and 40″!!!
What I love about our Cleanse and Restore program is over 30 days our body is completely supported with proper nutrition as a base foundation. Lifelong Vitality supplements I take everyday, twice a day. I take the full dose and have found it is supporting my body to balance and function better than anything Ive taken in the past.
We also use Zendocrine Essential Oil Blend and Complex to detoxify the body. I take these supplements over the full 30 days. Zendocrine supports the healthy functioning of the liver, along with the kidneys, colon, lungs, and skin.
After 10 days GX Assist is started for 10 days to gently cleanse and detoxify the digestive tract. The combination of very powerful essential oils and caprylic acid helps cleanse the digestive system, which helps all other functions of the body perform at their maximum potential.
After 20 days PB Assist is started to finish off the last 10 days of the cleanse and restore. This is the “Restore” part. PB Assist introduces a pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique doublelayer vegetable capsule. It delivers 6 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructooligosaccharides) that encourage friendly bacterial growth.
No this cleanse does not “have you running for the bathroom”. This truly is a cleansing and restore of your body.
Yes you will feel, sleep and eat better – naturally! Your body will crave less “junk”, feel fuller faster and digest and absorb nutrients like it naturally should.
Ive had many people asking me … “Well you must of done more…?”
Here is what I did…
- Lifelong Vitality Supplements everyday (even when not on the cleanse)
- Use Essential Oils whenever I can – for my physical and emotional health
- Remove processed, boxed frozen foods from our “diet”
- Watch portion sizes
- Choose healthy options – for example greek yogurt instead of sour cream (I love dips), organic tortilla chips vs potato chips, home made chicken fingers and pizza vs take out or frozen boxed foods
- I JUST (October 2017) introduced regular exercise to my life – YOGA!
- Drink a LOT of water
Yes I still enjoy my wine.
Yes I love food and do not limit myself to “diet” foods or shakes.
Yes I have had setbacks.
Yes I educate and encourage my children to make healthy choices.
Yes we limit “junk” food for our household.
Yes I have felt like I “couldn’t” do this and wanted to stop.
Yes I have gained my freaking freedom back and I am LOVING it!!!
Truthfully, if I can do this – anyone can – as long as you set your mind to it!
Mindset is massive in every single area of our life.
If you are in need of a boost – physically or emotionally – I would love to help!
