Why I Do What I Do…
Making A Difference
What gets you out of bed in the morning? For me, I like to feel like I have made a difference. And this past weekend I know for a fact that I have. And in a significant way!
On Saturday I got this text from my college sorority sister.
What brought this conversation about?
After a reunion at our sorority last year, we kept in contact and had a chance to get together for a mutual birthday celebration. My sorority sisters and I all traded stories about what we were up to with our families and our working lives.
I shared that I was now working with USANA, a nutritional company that had the highest quality vitamins and weight loss nutritionals available. I lost 9 pounds during the holidays and have kept it off for 5 months.
Susan knew she wanted to lose some weight and needed to improve her health. She decided to try the USANA products to see what kind of results she would get. If the results were good, she would become a USANA distributor because if she got good results, it would be easy to share and a great way to earn some extra income. But first, Susan went to her doctor to get a baseline check up.
And that is when she discovered she was a Type II Diabetic!
Oxygen Mask On Yourself First!
Now ladies especially… PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BODY! I asked Susan if she had any of the classic Type II Diabetes symptoms. She had morning grogginess and brain fog. She shared that she was always thirsty, and always going to the bathroom. She also had very low energy which is NOT usual for Susan. One time she got dizzy, almost blacked-out, and got blurry vision. A co-worker gave her something to eat and she felt better. They chalked it up to a menopause symptoms or stress due to work overload. Hah!
I’m willing to bet that if a man had experienced these symptoms, the outcome would’ve been different. Someone would have called 911 because it might be a stroke, heart attack etc. As women, we don’t always take care for ourselves because we are too busy taking care of everyone else. But like the flight attendants say on the airplane before take-off, put the oxygen mask on yourself first before you help others.
Now I knew something was off when she shared how little energy she was feeling and how often she was using energy drinks. In college Susan was always up for anything – very spunky and energetic. Susan took the True Health Assessment using the information she had at the time and it recommended our weight loss system, vitamins, and energy drinks (all of which are low glycemic). But she will be bringing them to her doctor for his stamp of approval just to be sure.
It’s Your Turn
Most people are way more interested in weight loss than in nutritional supplements. I think it is because weight loss is visible. You, yourself notice it and people around you do as well. The weight loss shakes are tasty meal replacements, nutritionally complete, and low glycemic. With USANA’s Reset Weight Loss System, you will lose weight AND get the nutritional support you need to put you on the road to better health. It’s time to take care of yourself – take the True Health Assessment and get on the road to better health. To order our products, visit here.
