    Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments

    Loses 70 lbs and 65 inches while in China

    'm nothing special just a small town boy living in a big city in China. As I was working out this morning I asked God to speak to me about getting healthy and how I can share with others some words of wisdom! You know I started this journey June 28, 2013 of a new lifestyle. It's has been a life-changing journey! I get messages everyday from random people I'll probably never meet but God connected us through Plexus. God has opened doors for me beyond my imagination to share His FAITH. I have been overweight all my life. As I looked back at my pictures last night with my roommate I told her, "Wow, I can't believe I looked that way." It took 28 years and 11 months to realize I needed to make a change in my life. Until you are ready to make that change of getting healthy and you have to have the mind set nothing is going to stop you! The SKY IS THE LIMIT!

    Don't change for someone else, change for yourself if you do this I truly believe you will stick to your goals and it will be long-term. I changed because I wanted to. Yes I've had people especially my MawMaw tell me I needed to lose to weight in the past so I did the Biggest Loser Bootcamp at the local gym, I joined a gym, I took B-12 shots, I took Advocare, I took plexus, etc. You get the point! I did it for other people and it didn't last I gained the weight back. You know why it wasn't ready to change because I was an EXCUSE MAKER! I don't have the money, I don't have the extra time, I'm too busy, I'm too tired, etc. you know what all that equals LAZINESS and FEAR OF FAILURE! All it takes is that first step of stepping out of your comfort zone and realizing you can do this. Find you an accountability partner and start your journey today. 6 months later you'll look back and be amazed on how far you've come! God is good and with Him all things are possible!

    Losing 80 lbs and 70 in in 8 months is still a dream to me so don't wake me up! So when you're ready to make that in your life please message me Plexus or not I want to help you!
