If you know me in real life or have been reading much on my website, you know that I am passionate about helping people find FREEDOM from excess - in their homes, in their lives, and in their bodies. I've written a book and developed an online course all about those first two categories, but what about the third? What about body clutter?
To be honest, I haven't talked about this kind of clutter much because it has continued to be a battle for me. While the clutter in my home has stayed under control (with the exception of my daughter's room - how do 8-year-old girls accumulate so much stuff??), and I am continuing to grow in spiritual, emotional, and mental freedom, I hadn't experienced freedom in the area of food.
I've always had a huge sweet tooth, painfully huge. On days when I was stressed out and found myself at the grocery store (which was almost every time), it was all I could do to pass up the sugary drinks and candy at the checkout line. Many days my resistance was futile and I gave in, justifying that "I deserved it."
Have you felt that physical pain from trying to pass on some delicious food? For me, it was sweets, but perhaps for you it's chips or bread. Or expensive, sugar-filled coffees. If only that deep craving could be for salad or fruit, right?
I would not have believed it myself if it hadn't happened for me, but it has happened. I actually want to eat salad now.
I few weeks ago, I was feeling stressed again, and I bought a candy bar. I gave in. But you know what? I never ate it! I was alone in a hotel, just me and the candy bar. No one would have known. But I didn't want it. Resistance was easy!
Just as I want you to experience the FREEDOM I've found from getting rid of the clutter in my home and life, I want you to experience freedom from out-of-control cravings and from carrying around extra body clutter everywhere you go. We can hide away the junk in our literal trunks, but the "junk in our trunk" on our back sides? That goes with us everywhere. There's no closing a closet door on that secret.
Let me tell you my story.
I tried Plexus for the first time about a year and a half ago. After a couple of months, I stopped because I wasn’t seeing these huge, amazing results that I was expecting. I thought the weight would just start flying off effortlessly. That didn’t happen, so I quit.
Months went by. I lost some weight on my own. I gained almost all of it back on my own. Meanwhile, I kept seeing the successes of my “Plexus friends.” I was tempted to block them, but I was too intrigued, and I didn’t want to miss the non-Plexus stuff they also posted.
This past July, I told my husband I wanted to give this Plexus stuff one more try. I wanted to use more than just the Slim and really commit to it to see what would happen. David agreed and said that I should sign up as an ambassador just to get the biggest discount possible, so I did.
For the first couple of months, I didn’t tell anyone what I was doing. I certainly didn’t tell anyone that I was a Plexus ambassador. I had no intention of trying to sell it. I just wanted the discount.
Back in November when I signed up to sell my book and online course at a Christmas craft fair, I very tentatively asked if anyone was representing Plexus. When they said, “No,” I decided to give it a shot. That was my first day to “come out” as one of those Crazy Plexus People.
By that time, I had noticed some changes. No, the weight wasn’t falling off. In fact, I hadn’t yet lost any weight. But my relationship with food was changing. I no longer felt controlled by sugar cravings. I could make it through the check-out line next to the candy bars without the physical pain of not buying something. I didn’t have to have my Coke in the morning. Healthier foods were tasting better to me.
Since then, the weight has begun to come off, but it’s still not super fast. I’m using an app to track my calories every day. As my insides have gotten healthier, staying within my calorie range has become much easier. I rarely feel hungry, and when I do, I’m no longer desperate for something sweet. I’ve lost roughly 10 pounds since Thanksgiving (I'm writing this in early February), and I’ve got about 15 more to go. My goal is to have it off by the end of April - not super fast, but manageable and reasonable.
I used to have bad stomach cramping in the afternoons and evenings, several times a week. After eating unhealthy things and then sitting at my computer for much of the day, things would get “stuck.” Now that very rarely happens. Instead of several times a week, it’s more like once a month.
So that’s where I am in my Plexus journey so far. I am passionate about helping women find freedom through getting rid of excess – in their homes, in their hearts, and now in their bodies.
While not a weight loss program on its own, drinking Plexus Slim every morning, along with a powerful probiotic and gentle cleanse, has helped me to cut way back on the amount of added sugar I consume every day. As a result, I've been feeling much better and losing weight. With a 60-day money back guarantee, you've got nothing to lose by trying it out for yourself!
