when i was preggers with cullen i was so worried about weight gain and more so about how i'd lose the weight after. BUT i knew i would be gaining weight and had to gain weight in order to have a healthy baby. so i guess i embraced it and i ate anything and everything my little heart desired! at 39 weeks when i went into labor i had gained 40 pounds!
we went to the doctor a week after we had cullen home because of his jaundice and the doctor advised me that i needed to be getting proper nutrients not only for cullen but for myself as well since i was nursing. i was having a hard time eating during the day, let alone the recommended 3 meals a day. i was and still am taking prenatal vitamins but the doctor suggested maybe i do something more. on the way home we stopped by a friends house and somehow the topic of weight loss came up, our friend suggested to me that i try RELIV. she gave me some samples of the FibRestore and RelivNow. i have been taking them both since!
these friends of ours are parents of 4 and they swear by these products! the whole family takes them, including the kiddos! if your kid(s) or if you know of any kids that have asthma, alopecia, diabetes or silac the shake for children has been shown to help just by including 2 shakes into their day. i am in no way stating that this will cure your child from anything. we know of people and children that use these products have helped. i would not endorse the products if i didn't have testimonials from people we know that have had their doctors say the products work!
back to me.....5 months later, i have lost all my baby weight and then some! i know some of the weight came off from nursing but i believe the reliv products played a roll in my weight loss as well. i now weigh less than i have in years, maybe since high school years. i feel great! only problem, i need some new jeans ;)
the reliv products are all natural and soy based. reliv is the only diet nutrition plan that is patented and actually proven to work. you can read HERE why Reliv is different! you can also create your own reliv plan by choosing products that cater directly to what your needs are.
now, don't get me wrong....i try to eat healthy for the most part but if i want doritos or a whole frozen pizza, i'll eat it! ;) if i want a glass of wine or a cocktail, i'll have it. i also know that i'll be getting all my healthy nutrients in the reliv products i take!
after months on the two products and seeing results i thought i'd share this little secret with you all! i waited to mention anything about these products until i had taken them for a few months and they proved to work and i had a testimonial of my own to share.
since we truly believe in all the products we have decided to start selling them ourselves! billy takes these twice a day as well! he is strength training and playing hockey all day so he prefers the Reliv Innergize, he also takes the RelivNow and ProVantage. he says he might wake up feeling a little groggy (who doesn't) but after he has his shake he feels 100% rejuvenated and i can totally relate! i'm not a breakfast kinda gal anymore so having a shake for breakfast is perfect for me.
