My personal love affair with the company and the products started at birth. My mother had used the products through her pregnancy with myself and my older sister, and we began using the products from the first few days of our lives. Growing up, I used the products every day as a healthy breakfast, and I regularly went to Herbalife events where I saw positive, passionate people all with a common goal; improving the nutritional habits and lives of as many people as they could. The passion and excitement they displayed was exciting and contagious. And I still feel that way today.
Despite growing up using the products for breakfast, in my late teens my nutritional habits throughout the rest of the day were far from healthy. I found myself, like most, going for the convenience of fast food over home cooked meals, and my only real form of exercise was going out with my friends. However, all that suddenly came to a halt when I fell pregnant. I was happy, sad, frightened, alone… all these emotions led to an unhealthy relationship with food and I ballooned during my pregnancy. I knew early on in my pregnancy I was going to be a single mum, and I was worried about how I would raise and support a baby all on my own. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, and whilst I was completely enamoured with her, I HATED how my body had changed. I was the biggest I had ever been at just 18 years old, and my self-esteem had plummeted.
As a young, single mum I wondered how I would ever attract anyone looking how I did, I didn’t feel worthy of love, I didn’t feel like myself. I never wanted to be in photos, and I hid my body in baggy clothes and long sleeve tops. It was my mum who first noticed the change in my confidence and suggested that I try using the products I had been using all my life for breakfast, as a way to control my weight. She coached me and encouraged me, not only with the products but also with exercise and improving what I ate around the products. I went on to lose 20kg in total, I got my confidence back and more importantly, I felt like me again. Not only did I fall in love with the products all over again, I loved how my new body made me feel, and I wanted to share that with as many people as possible.
Since then, lots of things have happened. I had another beautiful, healthy daughter, I furthered my love of nutrition and fitness, and I have a wonderful team in several different countries around the world. I’m able to work from home in London around my family commitments, always being present for the girls’ school plays and sick days… something I am incredibly grateful for. I’m part of an amazing company that continues to grow and support me, a company that still excites me!
Whatever it is you want from Herbalife, whether it’s to improve the nutritional habits of yourself and your nearest and dearest, to build a part time income around your current commitments, or to build a full time income, I’m excited to work with you towards making your dreams a reality.
Health and happiness,
