Why I am Beginning My Plexus Journey

     I can't say I have ever been an extremely healthy person. While I don't remember my mom being unhealthy growing up I do kind of remember not being made to eat what we didn't want to, and well I didn't want to eat anything healthy. Never really thought about it though I am a tall person and growing up I always wore a 00 or a 0 so hey why not just keep doing what makes me happy. Fast forward a little and I have 3 kids. Now I can't say OMG that is what caused the weight gain, because let's face it there are plenty of people out there who have kids and are still looking sexy. I went from a 0 to a size 4 in pants and an extra small to a Medium in shirts. Now I know this doesn't sound HUGE and, by no means do I think it is, but the 30 pounds I have hanging around has done so many things for me, and non of them are positive! My biggest struggle is my self esteem, now I know most women and especially mothers struggle with this as they get older and I never was really a "oh look at sexy me: kind of person but it has gotten to the point where I would rather hide under a hoodie and sweat pants then a tank top and jeans. When I look in the mirror, I do have good days but usually I see the person I don't want to be. My good friend from high school and college roommate started using Plexus and knowing the struggles she has always had I began to watch her. She dropped weight and most importantly inches, her moods improved and her self esteem grew. So I decided that I would join her in this journey. Now I know I have some inches to lose and some pounds. I don't know what that number is yet but I'm sure I will know when I get there. I'm hopeful I will feel more alive and sleep better, I have suffered with insomnia since having children and have yet to find a safe way to fix it and wake up feeling refreshed. I am also hopeful that this will help with my pain levels. I was going to come in here and say weight isn't the most important thing, my size didn't really matter, then I started reading back my post and lets face it, it does. My waist line is the same size as my boobs, and my pants measurement is 5 inches smaller on a bad day.........so it is safe to say my muffin is overflowing and ready to say goodbye! I hope that everyone will continue to check back, share your stories and maybe find a little inspiration knowing you aren't alone.
