How I Feel About It Works

It was about two years ago I believe that my sister decided to join the business of It Works. Everything seemed fine at first, I was excited to see what changes it would bring for her, financially and health wise but it turned out to be completely different to what I expected.

I was always skeptical of it and that’s one of the things they mention about those that are hesitant of joining but eventually I did because I wanted to help my sister. I’m not a fan of how the people in the company work, now I don’t have full knowledge of how each person handles their business but so far it has left a bad taste in my mouth. I’ll be completely honest though, the only products I’m fine with using would be the greens, wraps and defining gel. I’ve seen results on my sister but we both know that it takes more than just products to not only have results but to actually keep them. Many times when someone introduces me to anything new when it comes to taking for my health, I automatically say no, first explain to me what the ingredients are and even then I’ll most likely still decline because we can be getting told one thing when in reality it’s another. This is not only towards It Works but any other company that offers similar products to lose weight. I think promoting healthy eating, healthy habits and exercise would be the first way to go but taking pills to block calories is just not for me. I know it might seem as if I’m completely trying to make the business look bad, I know it has perks to it and it is definitely a huge help to have income coming in. I only hope that the people choosing to sell it are really doing their research as to what they are putting in their bodies and also trying to convince others that they need. I was easily influenced at first with it being labeled as natural but I don’t believe all the products are as natural as they state they are.

My next point is to how some of the people go about it when they want to post on social media why they chose to join. Don’t get me wrong I know it helps with those who have no choice at the time but to work from home. What I don’t agree with is how they can state that someone who works a 9 to 5 job is unhappy, I know it’s possible but it’s not the same for everyone. It’s not because they are afraid to join, afraid of changes or don’t want to work hard or whatever other reasons they may have. Everyone has a purpose, it’s simply something they don’t want to do and it can’t be forced upon them. Many people are happy where they are at and being able to stay at home making money isn’t the ultimate goal in life. They put their trust in God in leading them to where they need to be, where he wants them to be, not what someone else is saying is best for them. Now why would God be brought into this blog you might ask. A while ago the woman who signed my sister up is a very ambitious person and I know she wants to work hard to support her family, which is why often she would ask my sister how is her business going, seeing as how that benefits her as well. My sister Nancy, has different priorities at the time and unfortunately the other distributor was upset and rather than being understanding she kept stating excuses were being made when in reality it wasn’t the case, it just wasn’t for my sister. Now keep in mind I mentioned I don’t believe all the products are natural and my instinct was right. The other distributor and my sister were having a conversation when all of this went down. Completely out of the blue my sister was questioned on her beliefs and stated she was a Christian. I was in shock when the woman replied “Okay, never mind I see now why you don’t want to do it.” Of course my sister was curious as to why she would say that and it was because one of the products I believe or it could be more, can cause a serious illness and as soon as I find out which one, I will definitely post another blog about it or share it on the comments to this one. Christian or not, I don’t see why any company/human being would even want to sell something that can hurt someone. I know that there are many things going around in the world that can be just as dangerous which is very unfortunate. With many things going around, why add more to the mix? I never made one sell when I joined and I didn’t keep paying to have my account running. I don’t have a passion for it, I only joined to help my sister out which didn’t really make a difference seeing as how we both started putting our interest towards what we really love to do. I love blogging, even though I fall of the grid many times. I don’t know why but I always felt that when I blog it’s not just because I want to find something random to post about but because it holds meaning to me and I feel it’s something that needs to be made known.

God Bless ❤

My Reason

I just finished a workout not so long ago and as I was on the elliptical, I thought to myself since when did I care so much about my health. Of course I don’t see anything wrong with that but when I was younger I remember I was mainly doing it to look a certain way to just maybe receive a little of attention, I admit I had low self esteem back then but I give God all the glory for bringing me out of that state of mind to where I’m at now. Now though I see the real reason behind me trying to get fit and it has nothing to do with society. My motivation now is to be fit before I come to meet the man God has ordained for me to be with so when the day comes for me to have children, I know I’ll be healthy. I’m no stranger to knowing that some things can go wrong though no matter what but my faith is in God and I believe in being healthy for your family, because more than anything I want to give them the best of me that they deserve. I don’t want to be low on energy as I am from time to time, I want to be as productive as I can be not only for them but for myself as well but only God knows how that will go. I’m also aware that there are many women who are at a different stage in their health, to each their own I’m sure many of them have given birth to a healthy baby and if for whatever reason I don’t meet my goal before I have children I pray to God I’m blessed with healthy babies with great fulfilling lives dedicated to him.

For The Love of Food

First off let me start off by saying that I’m not the most fit person in the world and I’m definitely fine with that. There was a point when I would exercise but for all the wrong reasons, I wasn’t happy with myself and I wasn’t mentally stabled years ago so that really didn’t help, obviously. Now a days on the other hand I do it for my health. I think many times people take out of context when we talk about staying fit, watching what we eat and all that sort of stuff, how ironic though because I used to be one of them. I didn’t really like to hear about anything that had to do with someone telling me to lose weight, I thought it was rude and mainly I thought society was so wrapped up in what you should look like in order to be beautiful. One way or another I’ll admit, that did have an affect on me and to this day I’m still a little bit of self conscious but that’s more personal, thankfully now I could truly care less about what someone else says but point being, if you’re going to get into being healthy and fit, be sure it is for you and only you. I say go for it, for all the right reasons and to me, being healthy is more than enough. I will add this, don’t ever feel like you need to deprive yourself of something if you really want it. God only knows how many times I reached for the junk food rather than a salad or anything on that level but sometimes a girl just wants to enjoy a cheeseburger or something, nothing wrong with that, so to each their own right. I always just try to keep a balance between exercising and eating the food I want. Whatever works for me may not be for some people and what works for some may not work for me. Who are we to say how someone should live their life or what choices they should make?

I believe that the most important thing to do is to simply support one another even if we don’t always approve. If you’re happy then the ones that matter will be happy for you. ❤
