One Year




"Exactly one year ago today, I started my Plexus journey. I started it with the full intent to take the product for 60 days, not lose any weight or see any other benefit, and request my refund. After all, I had tried just about every program, pill, and diet that had ever been marketed.
One year later, I am 100 pounds lighter and healthier then I was last year. 100 pounds! I am beyond thankful for my Plexus journey. You see, last year I wasn't just overweight, according to my BMI I was morbidly obese. I was unhappy, lacked confidence, and had zero energy. I struggled with migraines weekly, was winded walking from the parking lot to my office, drank the equivalent of a two liter of Diet Coke daily, and hadn't slept through the night in years.
It hasn't been easy or a quick fix, but it's definitely been worth it. Plexus allowed me to make the lifestyle changes necessary to be successful at becoming healthier. On the weeks I didn't lose (or in some cases gained) weight, I stayed consistent. After all, I didn't gain all of the weight overnight. I stayed consistent. Consistent with the product. Consistent with my food choices. Consistent wit small changes that, in one year, have made a huge difference.
The difference in my life from a year ago to today is mind blowing. Take a look at a few of the most noticeable changes;
One year ago, my BMI placed me in Morbidly Obese Class. Today, my BMI is in the Normal Weight Class. 
One year ago, I struggled with migraines on a weekly basis. Today, I've had 1-2 over the course of the last 12 months. 
One year ago, I needed a nap each afternoon to make it through the evening activities. Today, I have the energy to go all day, no nap needed.
One year ago, I drank the equivalent of a 2 liter of Diet Coke each day. Today, I drink half my body weight or more in water everyday. It's been one full year since I've had a soda. 
One year ago, I couldn't walk a mile. Today, I can run eight miles. 
One year ago, I hated shopping. Today, much to Brad's dismay, I love shopping for clothes that are 8-9 sizes smaller than what I was wearing last year. 
One year ago, I craved sugar and fast food. Today, I make healthy choices at the drive thru and a bite or two is all I need of sweets. 
One year ago, I tossed and turned throughout the night, never getting a good night's rest and always waking up exhausted and irritable. Today, my sleep is uninterrupted and I wake up rested and ready to tackle whatever comes my way.
One year ago, I wasn't who I wanted to be. I wasn't healthy and I wasn't happy. Today, I'm well on my way to a healthy and happy me."
