I have diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, migraines, IBS, idiopathic anaphylaxis…I am a hot mess.
In May 2014, I started taking Plexus products, and combined them with a low carb diet. I have never sold anything in my life…no makeup, no jewelry, no cleaning products. I hated selling things for my kids. I kept seeing Plexus all over Facebook, decided to give it a whirl, and I was hooked! I became an Ambassador so that I could get better prices for myself. Once I started Plexus products, I wanted to tell everyone how awesome I felt! After one month with Plexus, I went Silver, which means I had three people signed up under me. After five weeks on Plexus, I went back for my regular 3 month visit with my internist. I had lost 19 pounds, my A1C had dropped from 10.6 to 5.3, and my blood pressure was NORMAL. My blood work and physical were so good that he took me off all of my meds! I had not had a migraine, I noticed that the bone spurs in my hands hadn’t been bothering me, and my “touchy” stomach from IBS had not been a problem at all! I was in a great mood, had energy, and was sleeping like a baby!
I actually started back at the gym! I WANTED to exercise!! WHAT??
After three months, I qualified to attend a FREE Leader’s Retreat with the top 1% of the company in Orlando AND got tickets to Disney! After 5 months I won a free iPad and briefcase, and on my six month anniversary I went GOLD! I had lost 41 pounds total. I was looking better, and feeling great.
And then everything started to change.
Let me give you a little bit of a biography. My husband has been working since July 2013 in Saudi Arabia. He is on a cycle…home for 2 weeks, then in Saudi Arabia for 3-4 months. Our two oldest sons are grown. We still have a 17 yo son and a 14 yo son, two dogs and a cat at home. The 17 yo is a cellist, and is a senior at the South Carolina Governors School for the Arts and Humanities, and has lived there since his junior year. Yes, the school is here where we live, but he still lives away from home now. For the last three years, I homeschooled our youngest son, and he started back in public high school this fall. I have my blog, my Plexus business, my Plexus blog, an antiques business, my husband’s businesses…and then I have my son’s travel baseball…and then I have the house, yard, pool and garden…and then I have myself trying to keep to a workout schedule.
I know, poor me. I am lucky to be able to stay at home. But sometimes I think I had it all together better when I had one job, and more of a set schedule, rather than now, when I feel like I am juggling 20 balls and dropping most of them!
So back to quitting Plexus. Last fall my weight loss had slowed, the weather was getting dreary, and my initial enthusiasm for my exercise schedule and healthy eating was waning. I started missing workouts. I started eating more and more “cheat meals” and I started to wonder if the “products were really still working.” My morning blood sugar readings started getting higher and higher. I fell behind on my blog, my Plexus business, my homeschool schedule…I lost enthusiasm for pretty much everything.
Of course, it was the fault of my Plexus products. Never mind that I just ate a pound of Twizzlers, Plexus is supposed to lower my blood sugar! I let a couple of months go by, and my blood sugar got higher and higher. And so did my weight. Obviously the Plexus had quit working.
I felt awful about what I saw as my failings as a representative of Plexus. I was being a horrible Plexus Ambassador. I felt that if I wasn’t being a product of my product I couldn’t in good conscience sell it to others. I was a terrible leader to the 40+ people on my team.
And I started looking at other products. I have tried several of our competitors…just to see.
And you know what? I felt AWFUL. There were a couple of products that I tried that made me feel great…for a few days. My stomach was a hot mess. There is NO OTHER company out there that has products like BioCleanse and ProBio 5. No one had anything to go along with their happy pills that helped my stomach issues, and certainly none of them had anything that would help my blood sugar.
I don’t care if our competitors have a magic pill that makes you lose 5 pounds a week…they don’t have anything that will make my stomach feel good. I am not going to be graphic here, but without my BioCleanse and ProBio 5, life just doesn’t feel as good for me, or for anyone around me. Don’t even make me get into the monster I become when my blood sugar is out of whack. It is not pretty.
So I came back.
I made the decision a few months ago to give the Triplex (Slim, BioCleanse and ProBio) another whirl. I did it right before I was headed to Puerto Rico for ten days with my family. And my stomach and blood sugar were magically perfect…even away from home, which is a minor miracle for me. My mood is awesome, I have energy, I am working out again, and enjoying it. I feel optimistic about my businesses again. Did I mention that the weight is coming back off?? Maybe it was spring in the air, or the ocean breeze. Maybe it was having my family together. Maybe it was the Plexus.
Plexus is NOT a miracle pill. It is not going to make you magically lose 5 pounds a week while you eat pizza and chili cheeseburgers. It is not going to cure disease.
But Plexus Slim CAN help to regulate your blood sugar. When your blood sugar is good, you can burn fat. When it is high, you are storing fat. Plexus BioCleanse and ProBio 5 CAN help detoxify and cleanse your body. Plexus CAN help your body get healthy, which in turn enables you to make healthy choices. Plexus works at a cellular level, and is loaded with ingredients that make healthy cells in your body. And healthy cells = healthy you! The Slim is full of all natural products, with nothing in fine print that you don’t want to know about. It’s gluten-free. It’s packed with good products and trace minerals that aren’t instant-magic, but that work with your body to bring full vital health.
I know that I was not looking at my journey in the right way. Don’t look for the quick fix. You can’t just look for that pill that is going to hype you up. You eventually have to come off of that pill. You need products that are going to get you HEALTHY.
If you have used Plexus in the past and quit like I did, give it another whirl. Plexus products work from the inside out, and as with nearly anything good, it takes time to work. If you just took the Slim and Boost, like most people did, try again, but with Slim, ProBio 5 and BioCleanse. Give it 60 days. The 60-day money-back guarantee on every single product shows the company’s belief in their products, and also their belief in true health that begins from the inside out, not an instant temporary fix. If it doesn’t make you feel healthier, you get your money back.
