    My story goes back a few years to 2009 when I had met the man of my dreams! I had always been just the average mom. I never had to worry about what I ate, I never had stretch marks after my first child, and I was always in perfect health and at the perfect weight. It actually wasn't until my wedding day in October 2009 that I had noticed I gained a few pounds and started getting stretch marks on my inner thighs. Still, I never really thought anything of it and I guess I always just assumed that since my body style was so slender that I would never have to worry about gaining weight. I never thought that would happen to me! Long story short, my health went downhill, I started thinking something was "wrong" with me because I was gaining weight so fast and my husband and I were trying to conceive for a year with no luck. Well, 1 year turned into 2 and still no luck. Before I knew it I went from 130lbs up to 165 lbs. After about 2 ½ years my husband and I FINALLY found out we were pregnant! I gained even more weight other places than my belly too, and I had stretch marks EVERYWHERE from the pregnancy. I heard about ItWorks in April of 2012 when I was 9 months pregnant with my second son. I was at a women's expo, and found the wraps intriguing but wasn't able to do them since I was pregnant and about to deliver. After my son was born, I went back down to about 160lbs. Well, before I knew it, 160 tuned to 180 and those stretch marks looked even worse not being pregnant. I was the biggest I had ever been and couldn't stand it anymore, I was disgusted when I looked in the mirror! I couldn't believe I let myself go so much! I had no energy, I drank coffee all day,  I ate junk, I didn't have the time to work out with a newborn, and I napped 2-3 times a day. I started seeing It Works more and more and hearing about it so much I decided to look into it. It took me months to finally decide to check it out. I planned my first wrap party for the beginning of January 2013 so that I could try these wraps for free. I found out that Itworks had A LOT more to offer than just a wrap! About 2 weeks after setting my party I decided to join the team. I still don't know why I decided to, but I felt like it was calling my name and I couldn't stop thinking about it! I ended up signing as a distributor on December 31st 2012. I did my first wrap on January 1st 2013 and got AMAZING results! After 4 total wraps, my stretch marks are now not even noticeable! 2 days after my first wrap I started on my Greens. The greens have changed my LIFE!! I got my energy back, I sleep better, after about 3 days on the greens I no longer needed coffee throughout the day, I no longer need naps, and after a week I stopped getting cravings for junk food and soda! My skin cleared up so much and I feel so amazing! I went from being 180 lbs in November 2012, to 148 lbs and I am STILL losing weight! As you can see, these products are changing my life and will still continue to! I have only just begun my story and I am so excited to share my story with you all! I love myself again and I LOVE the way my life is going and my future looks bright and clear again!
