All About Paul

Paul’s Story

Paul was 32 years old when he got sick. We were married only one and a half months. I took Paul to the hospital thinking he had pneumonia or bronchitis because of his bad cough. When we got to the hospital, the doctor wanted to keep him over night to observe him. The next day I went to see him and he told me he was tired. I told him to close his eyes and get some rest. In matter of minutes, a team of doctor and nurses were closing the curtains on me, cutting his clothes, and intubating him. I saw pieces of clothes on the floor and tubes going inside his room. I did not know what to think. No one was speaking to me. I started to cry hysterically.

Paul had carbon monoxide poisoning and his heart was enlarged. The doctors told me that his longs and body barely had oxygen and that his heart was working below 20%. Frankly they did not know how he was still alive. His weight (he was a little over 500 lbs) did not help the situation. Paul was in a coma for two and a half weeks. During the time he was in the hospital, I would not leave his side and prayed like never before. I am a believer that GOD works miracles and I prayed for him to work one for us. With his blessing, Paul is still by my side and it is going on 9 years since that incident.

After Paul came out of his coma, he had to learn how to walk again and had was struggling to get back to “normal”. He was then diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. The cardiologist recommended gastro bypass surgery due to weight not letting his heart get better. The cardiologist also said that Paul’s heart will not get to 100% let alone 60%. The max that it will function is 50% with the surgery done. He had the surgery done and lost over 100 lbs. He was another task for us to tackle. He had to learn how to eat certain foods again and watch what he would eat as not to affect him. We began slowly to change our eating habits together as to make it a team effort and support one another. It was not an easy task.

After the three year mark of losing all the weight he was going to lose, Paul began to gain some weight back. Now it was not due to his eating problem, but it was due to his lack of eating. He would not feel hungry and sometimes he would eat just once a day. Per the doctor, Paul was not allowed to exercise because any little extraneous activity to his heart was not good. I was also gaining back some of the weight I had previously lost, but I was exercising; just not eating properly.

I began worrying and getting afraid for both our healths again. We looked into Herbalife and tried it out together. We loved the results we got in the first 3 days. Most of all, he loved the way he felt and how it tasted. Finally, something that was nutritious, tasty, and something he would stick to. I also convinced him to begin taking the Heart Support that Herbalife offers. At first hew as hesitant, but he fave in and gave it a try. **He is feeling so much better now. Niteworks, helps to boost oxygen and blood flow through his heart, brain, and organs. Because he began feeling better and began having more faith in GOD and in himself, he asked me if we could sign up to the gym. I was a bit afraid, but we went for it. I watched him all the time like a hawk to make sure he was okay. Ha, ha, ha. But each day that went by he got stronger, and he lasted longer on the treadmill. He then began to use other machines.

I am proud to say that Paul has * lost over 70 lbs so far with Herbalife, and continues to take all his nutrition, go to the gym (on his own now, lol), and working on his health. He sleeps better at night and has more stamina. His cardiologist is amazed on how wonderfully Paul is doing now.

Herbalife has made our health journey so much easier over all. It is easy to stick to. We do not get bored of all the nutritional shake flavors, it is easy to go to, especially when you do not know what to eat, and makes our eating habits much simpler too. I could not be any more prouder of him and we could not be more in love with our products.

Now not only are we continuing to work on ourselves, but we are also on a mission to share our story and help others who need and are looking for help. Contact us today!

What is Herbalife?

Herbalife is a leading global nutrition company that changes people’s lives. It is a complete nutrition company; NOT a weight loss company. Herbalife has been around for 36 years and is now in over 96 countries. It was founded by Mark Hughes in 1980 at the young age of 23. Mark Hughes spread the word of nutrition around the world. The products are developed with a team of doctors and nutritionists.

Mark Hughes created Herbalife because of his mother. His mom used to be over weight. She would take different diet pills and sleeping pills to help her sleep at night. Mark Hughes wanted to find a way to help his mother without having to take pills. He went to China to research how and why the Chinese people were healthy and slim. To his discovery, their diet included herbs. Mark Hughes brought back the some of the herbs and theory to apply it to making a healthy supplement that would help others lose weight in a healthy manner and have great nutrition. Herbalife was created.

Herbalife is not a weight loss company. Herbalife is an all complete nutrition company. What do I mean by all complete? Well, a lot of people do take our products to help them lose weight and get healthy. However, we do not aim for weight loss. Herbalife aims for lifestyle change and health. We have supplements to help us put proper nutrition into our bodies, which in turn helps to lose the weight. Our products are also used to gain weight or just to have a nutrition meal because we do not get enough nutrition from food alone.

Herbalife also has supplements for:

As you can see, we are a whole complete nutrition company and specialize in helping people get healthy, not skinny.

Prolessa Duo VS. Liposuction

Prolessa Duo

prolessaduo_group_us

Herbalife Prolessa Duo is a fat burner in powder form. Duo in Prolessa Duo stands for double action. Prolessa Duo helps to decrease body fat and reduce hunger. It is a stimulant free product. What does stimulant free mean you may ask? Stimulant free means that Prolessa Duo does not have any chemicals that is going to raise our heart rate or attack our nervous system to burn fat. It will not give you any jittery effects or have your heart racing.

The ingredients in this Prolessa Duo has been clinically tested. It supports weight-loss with the clinically tested ingredients: conjugated linolic and a blend of palm and oats oil. The conjugated linoleic acid helps reduce body fat deposits and improve immune function. The palm and oat oils blend helps to reduce caloric intake and provide a feeling of fullness.

The way that Prolessa Duo works is that it helps to reduce body fat by helping to boost metabolism and breaking down the fat that is in your midsection. The fat in your midsection is called visceral fat. Visceral fat is body fat that is stored within the abdominal cavity and is therefore stored around a number of important internal organs.

Liposuction

Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that breaks up and “sucks” fat from the body. During liposuction, the fat is removed through a hollow instrument – a cannula – which is inserted under the skin. A powerful, high-pressure vacuum is applied to the cannula. Liposuction operation is normally carried out under general anesthetic. It is not a weight-loss tool, it is purely cosmetic, and its effects are subtle. There are a number of associated risks including infections and scarring. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity. Getting liposuction can be dangerous as anesthetic has numerous side effects.

My Thoughts

Personally, I have not done Liposuction and will not even consider having it performed on me. The thought of needles, anesthetics, and a tube going in my body to suck out fat petrifies me. I am not judging or criticizing those that have done it. I am simply showing you that Prolessa Duo can reduce fat like Lipo without the pain, surgery and thousands of dollars you have to pay.

I have and continue to use Prolessa Duo for a few reasons. First, let me start by saying that I have tried other fat burners in the past before starting on Herbalife. The prior fat burners would give me really bad side effects. I would get migraines daily, my heart would race, I would feel a little shaky and uneasy, and it affected my menstrual cycle more than it already was on its own. When I started Herbalife, it took me a while to try Prolessa Duo because I was afraid of fat burners due to past experiences. However, I was told that it was stimulant-free (stimulant, which was what I was afraid of) and that it did 2 things in one. Not only did Prolessa Duo help to burn fat, but it also helps to control hunger. So I gave it a try and YAY! no side effects.

It has truly helped me lose fat and control my hunger. To all my ladies: It has also helped crave some cravings during those times of the month where we just want to eat everything. Prolessa Duo along with a balanced healthy lifestyle is my liposuction.

My Result

My current results. I am still working on a healthier and stronger me.

All About Me

Hi there BEAUTIFUL souls! Welcome to our health journey blog. My name is Judith and my husband’s name is Paul. I have been on a health journey since 2012 and my husband just started his health journey in 2016.

How and why did I start?

Hmmm, by the age of 22 I had numerous health conditions and I was weighing 245 lbs. My doctor recommended that I lose weight and eat healthier. Sureeeeee! That was a piece of cake. NOT! As most patients, I did not change my eating habits. By the age of 26, I had added a few more health conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, acid reflux, back pain, frequent migraines, and a few other. I was shortening my life span. With all the extra illnesses came more medications, frequent doctor visits, blood work (I can’t stand needles), less activities, more sleeping, and not loving myself. 😦

That’s when it hit me, will I see the age of being “Over The Hill”? I needed to make a change, but I did not know how. So I began exercising and slowly changing what I was eating. However, it was a very difficult time because as much as I wanted this to work, I was truly not committed 100% to saving my life. Yes, I lost a few lbs, but I would gain some back. It was more like a yoyo diet. And if you know, yoyo diets are worse than any other diet because of the amount of torture you are putting on your body.

Fast Forward to 2016 when I hit the age of “Over The Hill”. I was a few lbs lighter than when I first started at 26, 35 lbs lighter, but it was not good enough because I was still 210lbs. As much as I thought I had changed my eating habits, I was still battling health problems.

After my birthday, I found Herbalife or maybe it found me. Any who, I started Herbalife in 2016 and I vowed to make a lifestyle change and forget any diets. Its is now 2017, I am down to 177 lbs**, I feel GREAT! I feel ENERGIZED! I feel full of LIFE! And the best part of all, I am in better shape of health than I was when I was 22. All my health issues are either gone or under control and the most EXCITING part is that I am not on any medications.* Being “Over The Hill” has been a whole lot better than before I got to the Hill. Who ever said that it goes down hill after getting to “Over The Hill”? I am proof that is not always true. 🙂
