This website is for anyone who is looking to get the 25% Herbalife Discount, plus be able to shop online for their own products.
It's also for people who don't want to feel any pressure to "do the business."
Herbalife has a community-oriented business model, however, not everyone likes to be part of a community. Some people (including myself) are more introverted and prefer to stay out of the spotlight. We like to do things on our own time and in our own way. We hate commitments and enjoy freedom. The last thing we want is to be bothered with texts, calls and emails about how we are liking the products or feel pressured into "doing the business."
I made this website for those people. The people who are searching online for ways to get the Herbalife discount and who want to figure things out in their own way, quietly and out of the spotlight, without really having to talk to someone else.
I know with any of these type MLM-type companies, people don't even want to try the products because they really don't want to feel pressured into doing the business later. This is unfortunate because the products really do work if you stay consistent with them and I feel like a lot of people might be missing out on something that could help them achieve their health and wellness goals.
When you register as a member under me, there will never be pressure to "do the business" at any time. Simply use this site to learn more about the products, purchase them on your own and enjoy the results!
If you have questions or would like support from me at any time, just email me, otherwise I will leave you be to do your own thing in your own way. 🙂

HOW I FOUND HERBALIFE
At the end of 2012, I quit my 9-5 job and started my own graphic and web design business because I wanted to be my own boss, do work that I truly loved and be able to work from anywhere.
I went into entrepreneurship with excitement, confidence and maybe even a touch of arrogance... only to be deeply humbled by this 6 months later, when all of my savings ran out and I realized I wasn't as good at marketing myself as I originally thought I was. I definitely had a lot more to learn.
Stress took over my life and I suffered for months with insomnia. I was working so hard, yet I still couldn't figure out how to get clients or make enough money to pay my bills... which made me feel like such a failure. And the worst part was that I didn't really know what I could do to make things better for myself or how long I was going to have to suffer for. I was in over my head and felt like I was drowning.
So I turned to food for comfort.
By July of 2013, I had gained 20lbs., I had no energy, I still couldn't sleep and felt like absolute shit.
That's when I realized something had to change.
I didn't want to quit and go back to a 9-5 job, so I went looking for the next best thing I could think of; a flexible, part-time job to help supplement my income.
I found an ad on Craigslist from a company that was looking to hire health coaches. I debated about responding to it for about a month, but then I figured why not? I've always been interested in health and fitness, so it would be cool if I could make a little extra money on the side helping others better their overall wellness. Plus, I figured it would help me get out and moving around more, which I knew would help me feel better and also hopefully help me lose some weight in the process!
MY PERSONAL HERBALIFE RESULTS
In August of 2013, I went to an STS (Success Training Seminar) which basically introduces a big group of people to Herbalife.
I learned how the products worked, heard live testimonials from other members (who were ecstatic about their own results!) and I learned how one can make money as a health coach.
The information was really intriguing so I decided to register as a member under the person who introduced me (the person who posted that Craigslist ad I found).
In order to become a health coach and "do the business," I had to use the products, which made sense... I needed to experience the products for myself so I could get a feel for how they worked and therefore be able to help others better. So my coach did a health evaluation with me and gave me a recommended Herbalife program to try. I remember telling her the prices seemed pretty high, but she said they were designed to save me money, since I could use the shakes as full meal replacements. I took her word for it and purchased a Quickstart program with my 25% membership discount.
I remember sleeping like a rock that first night for the first time in what seemed like FOREVER, which was seriously one of the best feelings in the world!
I went on to drink my shakes (the mint chocolate was my first shake... and it's still one of my all-time favorites!), took my tablets and watched my calorie intake more closely, as recommended in my program. I started feeling a lot better over the next few weeks and was loving how much energy I had again! I felt alive and was excited to see what kind of results I could achieve over time!
HERE ARE MY RESULTS AFTER 3 MONTHS:
Before Herbalife, I was just going to the gym by myself, which was getting a bit lonely after a while and kind of became un-motivating.
After I started Herbalife, I decided to join in on the free fit clubs that were being offered in San Diego at the time, which I found to be a lot of fun! The energy was high, we all pushed each other and everyone was so positive and helpful. 🙂 Plus, I met so many new people... and many of them have become good friends to this day!
In November of 2013, I joined the free 1-month Herbalife fit challenge.
HERE ARE MY RESULTS:
Within my first 6 months, I was down 12lbs., lost 6% body fat and gained 4% muscle. 🙂
"An extensive questionnaire generated responses from more than 200 U.S. Herbalife Independent Distributors about their weight-loss programs and results. They reported weight loss ranging from 4 pounds to 167 pounds and a reduced body mass index (BMI) of 1.5 points to 24.1 points, suggesting that consumption of Herbalife® products is associated with weight loss and improvement in BMI in those ranges."
Four years later, I'm still using Herbalife products and still achieving new results!
HERE ARE SOME MORE RESULTS FROM THEN AND NOW:
It's crazy to look back and see all these old pictures of me; so much has changed! I can't believe this is what I looked like before I started Herbalife... it's rather embarrassing to put this photo up online but I'm doing it in hopes of inspiring others. 🙂
I've learned that achieving results does not necessarily mean changing the # on the scale, it's more about about changing your overall body composition.
For example, in the picture above, there's only about a 7 lb. difference in weight, but I look more "toned" because I've replaced fat with lean muscle.
A pound of muscle is denser than a pound of fat, so it takes up less volume.
Here's what 5 lbs. of fat looks like VS what 5 lbs. of lean muscle looks like:
More lean muscle, less fat = a smooth and toned look!
So as you work towards your goals, it's important to understand and expect that the # on the scale might stay the same or even increase over time. This is why it might be a better idea to take weekly/monthly pictures and/or take measurements with a body measuring tap periodically... so you can actually see the results and get out of that scale-weight mindset.
Last spring, I decided to work at dropping more body fat, and the end result was the June 2016 photo (below).
I then decided to start trying to gain some muscle... and ended up gaining most of the weight back, BUT most of that weight was lean muscle mass!
I weigh about 10 lbs. more in April of 2017 than I did in June of 2016 (below) but I look more shapely and toned! 🙂
After putting on muscle and raising my metabolism, I now get to eat more! I eat over 2,000 calories a day, lift heavy (power lift) 4-5 days a week, and do limited cardio of mostly just walking (I used to run a lot and thought that was how to lose weight, but I've learned over time that lifting heavy is where it's at!)
By the way, Rebuild Strength is my favorite post-workout shake! I actually like to drink it like hot chocolate... it seriously tastes SO GOOD!
THE BUSINESS SIDE OF THINGS
I've learned how to market myself online (so I never ended up having to go back to a 9-5 job!) and still work from home today as my own boss.
I still have my graphic and web design business, but I have also been able to make online health coaching through Herbalife a nice little part-time business on the side... a side business that actually makes me most of my income every month!
I only work the business from home (or from wherever I travel to), I make my own schedule and I can work as little or as much as I want.
If you are thinking about doing the business, just know that it took me a few years to get to where I am now, but sticking with it was the best thing I could have done because it's really taken off over the past year, which is SUPER FREAKIN' EXCITING! I even qualified for the Herbalife Vacation this year to Disney World! I got to go for FREE... how awesome is that?!
Here are some pics of me from my vacation!
I'm incredibly grateful for this company and for all of the people who have found this website and have signed up as a member under me. You are helping me create my dreams!
Furthermore, if you're ever interested in doing the business, I can help you with that, too!
Anyways, that's my story so far. I can't wait to see what else I can achieve... and what YOU can achieve!! 😀
