So I should have written this post on Thursday but I have been playing around with it for the last two days lol. I haven't been able to get the words to come out the way I wanted them to - to show how I really feel and why I am so thankful right now.

See the last 5 years has been nothing but a struggle for me and my family. Most of my readers know the story, but for those that don't here is a quick recap, 5 years ago I lost my good paying job, and of course couldn't find anything else. My husband had applied for disability about 4 months before I lost my job. I started networking heavily ( had been in it off and on 11 years before then) and met some really great people. Yes I have tried my hand a  few home based business and made a little money with them, but nothing that would help us get out of this rut. Finally after 6 months of unemployment I was able to find a part time job - with the company that I am still with now. But as we all know all to well, a part time income doesn't support a family of 5.

So about a month ago we got the final denial letter from SSD about my husbands disability. 5 long years of fighting, going to court and all that good stuff, and of course their reasoning for turning him down is just crazy - they say he can find a job where he can work with the restriction of being able to lay down for 30 minutes every hour - really? Come on now!

Anyway - Over the past few years I have met some pretty amazing people and made some true and lasting friendships. One of them being with a woman named Gina who back in April had me do a product review for her. Little did I know at that time that, that one product review would start me on a journey through an amazing life changing experience. You can read more about this review that started my journey by checking out this post.

So anyway - I not only had been struggling with finances - but also with my weight. I had tried other products and things that helped it come off, but I guess with all the stress at home it just kept coming back.  But now here I am 7 months later and 70 pounds lighter and I am just beside myself with this opportunity that I have been given.
Before I go on I want you to take a look at my most recent before and after picture below.

This is truly a blessing to me to be able to get this weight off. The more I gained - the unhappier I was becoming. I had no energy, was very moody and just plain out pretty much was beginning to hate myself. Between the weight gain and the financial issues - I just couldn't get myself out of the rut I was in.

Well after I did the product review and lost the first 6 pounds I knew I was going to stay on the product to help get the weight off - but me being a networker and marketer and having been involved in Direct Sales - I had to look at the business side of this as well. And once I did the research on that I knew I had to give it a shot. I mean it was really a no brainer , the product works ( I am living, breathing, walking proof of that), the compensation plan is like no other that I have ever seen before, and when I found out that the company was open world wide and hadn't been introduced in all 50 states yet - It was a must that I get in. See anyone that is familiar with marketing of any sort knows that the closer you get in to the ground floor the better chance you have of building a good solid and strong business

So I worked hard for two days and came up with the money to start my business with Plexus. I started by business at the end of April and I am baffled at how quickly my life has started changing since then. I went from making about $100 a month with my other company ( Scentsy of course I will never give that up lol) to now I am making about $400 a month with Plexus. I know this doesn't seem like a lot to most people, but when you go from having to borrow money every single month to pay your bills - to being able to pay yourself this makes a big difference. It is a huge weight lifted off my shoulders just to know my bills are paid every month. Sure there still isn't very much money left for other things but we are making now and not having to worry about things getting shut off lol.

So that is what I am thankful for. I am thankful for this one little product that has done so many wonderful things for me in the past 7 months. This one little product has helped change my life both physically and financially and I tell you the true reward is when I hear testimonies from other customers and my team members about how well they are doing and how it is changing their lives as well!
