90 day meal plan & IPL Results
Here’s is a results story that may help motivate someone to begin their own journey, as change may be needed in their life.
Ever had that, “I’m so tired of being sick and tired all the time!” feeling? You’re not alone! My story starts as a kid going through school as the “chunky” kid. In high school, being overweight helped me to be on the offensive line at the center position. I hated running and working out, but I loved to eat. Struggling off and on with weight gain and weight loss throughout the next 20+ years. Going from 250lbs in high school to 225lbs after high school all the way up to 320lbs in my 30’s. Always sick or “not feeling good”, tired with pretty much zero energy. Pizza and beer became my way of life. Dealing with chronic heartburn and feeling like I was having heart attacks every day.
My doctor referred me to a cardiologist and finding out I have an enlarged heart and on the verge of a stroke or heart attack, things had to change. Being in debt, living the American dream, I also needed more life insurance just in case. Fudging a little on my weight and thinking I was good to go, about a month went by and I got a rejection letter in the mail. I was denied because I was obese and high risk. WOW! That set me down a new path, things have to change! I heard of people at the office trying different weight loss diets and fads, but everyone keep talking about Herbalife. Researching Herbalife and the results people were getting was truly amazing. My health coach invited me to a nutrition club, Thrive Health and Wellness, in Lodi, and the rest is history. Results became a monthly occurrence and a weekly occurrence. Losing a total of a 105lbs and feeling amazing! Going from a size 50, to a size 38 waste was life altering to say the least.
Always looking for new results, as I put on a few pound being comfortable and happy in my life, this year I entered into a physique competition, IPL, to push myself more and continue with my results. My health coach, Karen Baumgartner, did the competition a year ago and took 3rd place for bikini mommas over 40, and watching her along with other team members do the competition motivated me to join the H24FIT team! Another WOW round of results! Weight loss of 28lbs and 8% body fat! I can fit into size 34… 34, I haven’t been able to wear a 34 since Junior High! I can run a 10 minute mile now, I don’t think I have every done that! I owe so much to my coach and team mates for all their help and support. Along with Herbalife nutrition plan and my work outs. The IPL competition was a great experience and so very positive that I am going to keep going!
Oh by the way I am 43 years young and I feel better and look better than I have every felt in my entire life! My results with Herbalife are so amazing that along with my health coach, now my life partner, Karen we bought Thrive Health and Wellness and we are committed to helping others become healthy and happy!

Consumers who use Herbalife Formula 1 twice per day as part of a healthy lifestyle can generally expect to lose around 0.5 to 1 pound per week. Participants in a 12 week, single-blind, study used Formula 1 twice per day (once as a meal and once as a snack) with a reduced calorie diet and a goal of 30 minutes of exercise per day. Participants followed either a high protein diet or a standard protein diet. Participants in both groups lost about 8.5 pounds.
