I would first like to say that I am an incredibly skeptical person, so becoming a Plexus Ambassador wasn’t really in my cards (or so I believed). I never bought into organic vegetables until I started this blog, I never tried hot yoga, I definitely don’t believe in aliens . . . it takes a lot, I’ll say, for me to really get behind a product or idea. So when Plexus came around, I shrugged it off. How many dieting supplements are out there that are total crap? ‘Scuse my French, but seriously. How many? And how many companies are all about these shakes that you have to completely plan your day around? And how many companies want you to buy their frozen meals? Count points and enter it into a system? Schedule phone calls for your personal counselor who may or may not shame you for having a slice of cake at your daughter’s wedding? I’m sorry, but who wants that?So when my mom started blabbing about this packet of powder you pour in your water once daily called Plexus, I was like, “Yeah . . . okay, Mom . . . bet that works . . . uh huh.” Eye roll, eye roll, shake my head. Then a couple months after my mom started taking Plexus, I noticed something. Her pants fit a little looser. Her energy was up. And something else was different. My mom, regardless of her thin figure, has gone her whole life battling high-cholestorol. No diet can fix it – it’s hereditary. But a month or two after Plexus, her cholesterol dropped 50 points. 50![I’m not saying this will happen for you, I am only discussing her experience while on Slim]
So all of my skepticism about the product started to slowly slip away. I did my own research, (since nutrition is a huge part of what makes me . . me :)), and loved everything I uncovered. Like always, I encourage you to do your own research, too. I especially encourage you to ask your doctor.Then came the comments. “You should try selling Plexus! Become a Plexus Ambassador! You have Skinny Girl Standard, you work out! You could make some serious money!” But in my head I’d just think, “Phhhhh . . . pyramid scheme. Too good to be true. No way am I doing that!”
“Well at least sign up as a Plexus Ambassador so you can buy your products wholesale,” my mom told me. “That way, you can make a little money if you refer someone to Plexus, but if not, you’re still saving every month!” And she was right. Not only was I taking Plexus Slim, but I was also considering Plexus X Factor (with aloe), Plexus Boost (for energy – may also suppress your appetite), and Plexus ProBio 5 to fight my fatigue, bloating and anxiety! Eventually, I decided to be a normal person who wanted to save money instead of a skeptical basket-case, and I entered my name into the system and became a Plexus Ambassador. . .
This past week, I sat in the living room at my mom’s house as we listened to a ton of Plexus testimonials. Physically, the weight loss among that crowd was unbelievable. The first woman who got up to speak had lost 8 pounds in her first week. “This isn’t a typical result,” she told us, “but it definitely happens.” The second woman had lost 50 pounds and no longer drinks Dr. Pepper because, well, she just doesn’t crave it. The third woman would stop breathing approximately 150 times a night in her sleep before Plexus. Now, she sleeps through the night.
Financially, the success was even greater. Out of twenty-or-so people at the party, three had gone to Hawaii (on a Plexus paid vacation), and two had a Plexus Lexus – yah, like the car. One was about to receive her second. I couldn’t believe all of the rockstars there who had quit their day jobs and were living their lives eating healthy, working out, relaxing and talking about Plexus to strangers. It was amazing! I felt so silly for being so doubtful about Plexus, especially after learning about how great the company is to a Plexus Ambassador and their customers. And I can’t believe I held off for so long.
Today, I feel so blessed to have joined the Pink Drink community and to officially be a Plexus Ambassador! My team is made up of the most incredible, smart, and successful men and women I have ever come in contact with. I know teachers who have retired, women who have paid off mortgages, and fathers who have started (and completed) college funds for their children. Plexus works as a business because when people see you losing weight, they want to know your secret. They believe it when they see it.
**One last thing I’d like to add: just as everything goes, Plexus Slim may not be the right product for your body or your weight-loss journey. I have known people to have incredible success with Plexus, and others to have little-to-no success with it. All bodies work and function differently – otherwise there would only be one weight-loss program out there, right? 😉 Because I have seen such incredible results, I will actively encourage others to at least try Plexus. If it doesn’t work after 60 days, you can always get your money back! You have nothing to lose (except maybe, in your opinion, a few pounds :)) All day long, people can sit behind their computer screens, read articles, do research and blunder through testimonies, but until they try the product, they will never know if Plexus can be the solution. If you are expecting to order Plexus and get away with eating more food because, heck, Plexus will take care of the extra calories, don’t bother. Reversely, if you are willing to acknowledge the changes in your body (suppressed appetite, less sugar cravings), Plexus is something you should totally try. A month from now, half-a-year from now you may laugh that you ever doubted it in the first place.**
Shop my favorite work-out equipment (as a Plexus Ambassador):
If you combine exercise with Plexus, you need to check out some of these great items. Quest is my favorite protein company! I am obsessed with not only their protein powder, but also protein bars. I’m also madly in love with Swell bottles. They’re beautiful, fit perfectly in your gym bag, and keep your water super cold. And if I don’t have these Nike shoes by the end of today, I give up. Not really.
