My first 2 months with It Works! – The truth

I decided to become an It Works! distributor towards the end of June, and have actually enjoyed it very much. I want you to know that I’m not saying that just because  I want you to order from or join my team (but I mean if you’re interested I would love to help you out or give you more information!), I’m saying that because I truly have. I’ve formed some really great relationships through this company in the short time that I’ve been apart of it and while my paychecks haven’t been huge, they’ve gotten bigger the longer I stick with it and the more work I put in!

I was incredibly nervous when I started out my It Works! business because I had a lot of negativity in my ear. People telling me “Watch out, that business is a scam!”, “They charge people’s cards without their consent!”, “It’s such a pyramid scheme”, “I did it for a month and it didn’t work” or “It didn’t work for my friend, so it doesn’t work.”. I decided to put the negativity aside and give my business a real shot, I put the money into it so I might as well put in the effort and see what it can do for me. Right? I mean you can’t do something for a week and expect to see results, and their card didn’t get charged without their consent; they didn’t read what they signed. One of the biggest things I’ve learned is that this business and these products will work for you as long as you put in the time & the work required. You can’t just use one wrap or publish one post on Facebook and get where you want to be, everything takes time and consistency!

A huge amount of people also think that these products are to make you lose the weight on their own and that’s not the case at all. It Works! isn’t here to replace your workout or a healthy life style, we’re simply here to enhance it! These products are created to be used along with your healthy lifestyle and to enhance the results from all your hard work and they really do, I’ve seen it and lived it!!

I’m so so happy that I decided to stick with the company because it’s an amazing feeling helping your clients and hearing how excited they are when a product starts working for them! It’s what makes this business so easy; all I’m doing is sharing mine & my friends/clients results and that speaks for itself. Which is should honestly, these products are all natural and awwwesome!

I know some of you won’t have the same opinion as I do and that’s completely fine, but for those of you that are interested and want to hear more about either selling the products yourself or have always been interested in trying them out please contact me, I would absolutely love to chat!! You can reach me through my email, or at my website,!



Today’s the day, week one

Today’s the day that I get really serious about this whole losing weight thing; and to be honest my concern isn’t so much about losing a bunch of weight (although wouldn’t it be nice?) as much as getting off my butt and feeling good about myself. I’ve always struggled with eating things I shouldn’t, feeling gross and down on myself all the time and wanting to get up and be active but not having the motivation to do it every day. It’s going to be different this time though, this time I’ve enlisted my boyfriend as my personal counselor; he’ll be helping make sure that I don’t eat any fast food / too many sweets each day and also in charge of making sure I get in at least 30 minutes of activity a day. Now I realize that there’s only so much he can do and the rest is on me which is why my plan is to go to the gym everyday for at least 30 minutes after work (I mean I work right down the street from it…) or workout at home with him and also to start eating healthier everyday… RESIST THE COOKIES SHELBY.

All I keep thinking about right now is the fact that I want to feel good about myself this summer and not embarrassed about the way that I look, and also the fact that I’m in my sisters wedding next spring and need to look AMAZING in my bridesmaids dress because there’s going to be sooooo many pictures and do I really want to look at myself and think “Ewe”?? I’ve tried this many times before and unfortunately I’ve never been able to stick with it because I lose my motivation. I’ve never cared about what people think of me so I think I’ve let myself go a little bit more than I ever wanted, not that I’m even close to overweight but it’s the fact that I feel so bad about myself lately. SO, today’s the day that I start getting really serious about this, they say it only take four weeks before you start noticing changes in yourself and eight before other people start noticing as well. We’ll see how long I can keep this up!

P.s. I’ll be giving weekly updates and would love to hear any neat weight loss tips & tricks you guys might have for me to try.

Loving yourself isn’t always as easy as they make it seem~

My demon has always been my weight; it’s always “I’m not skinny enough” or “ew, look at my rolls”.  Now, I know I don’t look big when you’re looking at me but what really gets me down is when I’m looking down on my own body. I can see every bump, lump and roll there is from up here and I won’t lie it’s really hard to accept myself for the way that I am sometimes. I’ve read articles about that “extra layer” that some women have on their stomach (I like to call it my poof, some people call it a beer gut but you get the point) is to protect the vital organs down there, but if that’s the case why doesn’t everyone have a poof like mine? I just think that’s plain bullshit man. Not to mention the fact that all of this is the damn pills fault, I was on the Depo shot for almost 4 years and never gained weight until I got back onto the damned pill. That was the Biggest. Mistake. Ever. Now I have an IUD and I’m really hoping that I’ll start losing the weight naturally because honestly I’m so tired of feeling like less than myself because of the number that shows up when I step on a scale. If I had the opportunity to get a free fix for any part of my body it would 100% be my stomach. I love everything else about myself, but I guess there always has to be that one thing, right?!  Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m beautiful, sexy and confident but I know that if I could at least flatten out my stomach a bit I’d feel so much better about myself. I wouldn’t have to hide from my partner because I’m embarrassed. Hell, I would even have sex with the lights on! I’ve tried teas, detox’s, pills, videos, eating better, and going to the gym all of which (of course) aren’t working the way that I want them to. I guess it’ll probably be a never ending struggle because lets be real, I LOVE food and I don’t think I could ever give up what I love for diets. Plus I wouldn’t last 10 minutes dieting. So the way I see the situation at this point is I’d rather die fat and happy than hungry and sad!
