Hi Friends – Say hello to Caitlin!!!

Isn’t she beautiful?? Well, I MAY be a little “partial” as she is my youngest daughter who is beautiful inside and out!  Caitlin has accomplished so much in her young life, but she really has accomplished so much this past year.  Here is her story:

“I have just passed my one year Plexus anniversary earlier this month.  Plexus Worldwide is an all-natural, health and wellness company that makes Plexus Slim, also referred to as “a little pink drink.”  Plexus Slim is the core product that is known to help regulate blood sugar and aid in fat loss.  It has given me sustainable energy, helps curb my sugar cravings and helps me sleep better.   

A year ago, I was a completely different person.  I’ve struggled with anorexia/binge eating for years. I was miserable with my body, not because of the extra weight, but because of all of the health issues I was having because of my unhealthy lifestyle.  I could not resolve this really annoying and uncomfortable issue (chronic yeast infections) that I later learned was from candida (which is yeast) living in my gut.  Little did I know that the whole time I was eating, I was feeding it.  I dove in head first, and I signed up as an “ambassador” with Plexus to get the products cheaper because that’s how I am… I am a bargain shopper! Joining Plexus was the best decision that I’ve ever made in my entire life.  Please don’t get confused; it’s certainly not a magic pill.  I put in a lot of hard work and effort to get to the point where I’m at right now. But, honestly without Plexus, I may never have changed the way I was living.

My eating habits are the healthiest they have been in my 22 years of living.  I’ve lost 35 pounds of fat and I’m down 4 pant sizes!!!!  I have more energy and feel fit!  This is the first time in my life that I feel GOOD about my body and my health because Plexus has helped me lose weight the RIGHT way. I’ve gone this entire year losing at a healthy, steady pace without counting one single calorie.  I’ve only had to deal with that pesky health issue twice this year (I had been dealing with it multiple times a month) and no more joint pain. Don’t get me wrong. I do not eat whatever I want whenever I want, but I’m aware of what I’m putting into my body for the most part.  I also don’t crave chocolate 24/7 like I used to.

When I first started taking my Plexus products, I was still working at a pizza restaurant and was eating horribly.  I lived off pizza and chocolate.  I saw so many people have great results with Plexus, so I decided it was time to make a change!  I still eat A LOT.  I’ve just learned how to eat better.   I started eating more protein, veggies and fruits.  I also cut back on my carb intake.  When I prep for a meal, I usually put it in “to go” containers filled with sautéed chicken, brown rice, asparagus, and Brussel sprouts.

I’ve also fallen in love with fitness.  I lost about 15 pounds before I even started to work out, and then I decided I wanted to take it to a different level. I’ve found something that I’m passionate about and that gives me a healthy release. I go to the gym about 5 times a week.  I am now more in touch with my body, and I love to try new things when it comes to working out.  Stretching has become my favorite part of each day.

Because of my love for fitness, I reconnected with an old friend who is now my “swolemate.”   It’s nice to have someone at my side with the same passion and goals that I have about fitness.”  (Clare’s Note: to some of us “mature” ladies, “swolemate” means “life-long gym partner”).

“Plexus has completely changed my life, and for that I will be eternally grateful. There will never be a day that I go without my “little pink drink.”  And I am happy and satisfied not only with the sizes and weight I have lost, but also with the good health that I have achieved.”

I certainly hope you enjoyed this story. Caitlin is young and vibrant, but now that she is fit and eating right, her new health has truly transformed her life.  I am not promoting any particular products; however, if you are interested in more information about Plexus, please do not hesitate to contact Caitlin at www.plexusslim.com/caitlinspeer.

Thanks for joining me on “A Healthier You – Food, Fun & Fitness.”  Until next time…
