(Disclaimer: I honestly don’t like talking about my weight loss because I don’t want to come across as “bragging” or glorifying being skinny, but after a few close friends have had recent health scares that the doctors told them was caused by extra weight, I knew that now was the time to share.)  🙂

After I had my son, the weight came off in five months.  But my daughter was a different story – it was if my body was being stubborn the second time around!lol…

I didn’t want to just lose weight – I wanted to be healthy, eat right, cook healthy meals, and be an example to my kids.  I wanted to be a Mommy that my kids could look up to.

So I did a total overhaul: in addition to going easy on the carbs, drinking more water, and focusing on eating fruits, veggies, fish, and eating mostly ground turkey or chicken, my good friend also introduced me to some Wellness products that include a weight supplement.

I was very wary at first until my mom suggested them to me.  (She has battled and won the fight against breast cancer, and now only eats only organic foods, and researches any product before using it – so I knew that if she was taking it, then it was indeed all natural.)

The Visi products curbed my appetite and helped me to lose all of my baby weight and then some – now I’m back in my high school jeans.  But it’s not just about being skinny – studies show that extra belly fat can up the risk of heart disease and some cancers.  I want to be in shape for my family, and I want to be around for a long time.  Now that I’ve lost the weight, I am still taking the wellness supplements.

I want this to be an encouragement not just to lose weight, but to get healthy so that you can be around for a long time to enjoy your family and friends.  God says that our body is our temple, and we only get one here on earth, so let’s take care of it! 🙂

Blessings,

Lauren
