Lost Over 53 lbs. using Breakfast Pack
Weight Loss Update: Currently down over 67 lbs.†

What was your motivation for joining the 90-Day Challenge?

I was at my highest weight and my doctor was concerned about several health issues. After years of yo-yo dieting and trying every trend out there, I was ready for something different and I finally found it in NeoLife!  From day one, I was able to give up sugar and carbs because all my nutritional gaps were being filled simply by adding the Breakfast Pack to my life. I lost 25 lbs.† on the 30-Day Challenge back in December. Yes! Over the holiday season which is the hardest time to resist all those tempting treats…I didn’t eat any sweets! This has become my lifestyle so of course I’d continue on to the 90-Day!

Lost Over 15% Body Fat using Breakfast Pack

What was your motivation for joining the 90-Day Challenge?
I struggled with weight my entire life. No matter how much I exercised and watched what I ate, I could not lose weight, so I just gave up. Then I had a major health challenge with my shoulders that caused me to not be able to lift my hands above my waist without excruciating pain, nor could I even hold a one-pound weight. I started some alternative health options and began working out with a trainer to regain muscle strength. As I regained strength and built muscle, I also added weight loss to the equation, and joined the Challenge for accountability and encouragement. Read More

My motivation for joining the 90 day challenge was after hearing and seeing the results from many people at North America Convention in Las Vegas who had lost weight and improved in their fitness level. I had already lost 30 lbs doing the 30-Day Challenge but I knew that I could still lose more weight and feel even better. I remember telling myself at Convention that I wanted to be someone who could encourage and inspire others through my own health transformation story! Read More

What was your motivation for joining the 90-Day Challenge?

The results of the 30-Day Challenge were very encouraging and it inspired me to continue my quest for optimal health by signing up for the 90 Day Challenge. Read More
