Welcome to my story!

Thank you for visiting my blog! Here I share my ups and downs of being a mom who has tried working from home, but most importantly wants to be healthy and share it with others. If you can make money while doing it...AWESOME!

I have a passion for LIFE and that includes my family, working out, eating healthy, and sharing what works and doesn't work with others.

I LOVE working with Xango and their new product Favao, it gives me the opportunity to mentor others to reach their health and wealth goals!

It's all about lifestyle change...not dieting!

When I look back and think of all of the money I've spent and things I've tried to lose weight and get the body I want, it's frustrating to no end!  And don't even get my husband started, it's one of the things I do that drives him CRAZY!  This is why I'm so excited about Favao, a weight loss program that takes 12 weeks to Reset your body.  Then it's easy to maintain, you can choose from meals in the book and make your own meal plans, you don't crave sweets and carbs anymore, and you're just overall smarter about the food choices you make!  I've read so many articles about living healthy and I love learning about it.  My favorite magazine is Women's Health, so much great information!  My problem hasn't been lack of information, it's been lack of putting a plan together that I can stick to.

Favao has done all of this for me and that's why I am now starting Week 7 on the plan and have no desire to stop!  Typically I make it, oh, maybe a month on something. I've tried Weight Watchers online a couple of times, lost a few pounds and then got tired of tracking after a few weeks...both times!  I don't like Weight Watchers because you can still eat so many sweets, just as long as you stay under your points.  That doesn't work for me, I LOVE sweets, I needed a program that helped me not crave sweets anymore.  There are sweet things on Favao, so I don't have to say goodbye to them.  For example, this week my Power Snack is Baked Apple Pie...Yum!!  I also used MyFitnessPal on my phone to track my calories.  I know I burn enough calories, and my problem is the calories I put into my body.  Did it work?  Yes!  But yet again, I got tired of entering everything in and tracking everything so this plan only lasted maybe 2-3 weeks.  I try going back to it, but the thought of all that tracking turns me off.

This is why I love Favao!  This amazing team of personal trainers and nutritionists have put together a program I can follow.  They tell me what to cook, how much goes in each meal, what I can substitute if I don't like something, and even when to eat each meal!  Crazy!  The preparing is the hardest part, takes me a couple of hours, but then the rest of the week I'm done.  Just cook dinner!  I love it and because they've made it this simple, I'm sticking to it and will continue to even after the 12 weeks is over. 

I feel more energy than I have in a long time.  And the success stories are awesome!  Here are some Real Results from Real People on Favao that Cat Parker has posted on Facebook:
1 week on FAVAO Check in: 5.4lbs and 8" lost!!
Goals for week 2: drink water. 4 -16oz bottles a day. Gotta build up to 6 bottles.

Ann Total -11 pounds== 4 inches off my waist, 2 off my hips, and 2 off my chest, for a total of 8 inches. I should have measured thighs and upper arms, too. My rings are loose, my watch is more of a bracelet now, too. HOORAY FOR FAVAO!!!

My husband Dan is so excited! He has lost 10lbs since Jan 1, all extra fat he didn't need anyway.

Wednesday Morning, 17 lbs in 4 complete weeks! Feeling GREAT

Amy I am down 7.5 lbs in 10 days! More than I lost all last summer, when I was on Weight Watchers! I don't have a lot to lose, so a loss like this is huge!!!

As for me, I'm still going, lost another .25 inches from my waist!  Every single inch is a WIN!!!!  Here's to Week 7, I'm excited!  Prepared my meals last night and I'm excited to eat!  I'll be having Strawberry Ice Cream first thing (my Metabolic Booster Meal), then Berry Pancakes with Favao whipped topping for Breakfast, then Baked Apple Pie (Power Snack), Turkey Cheese Wrap with Orange Smoothie for lunch, homemade Chips & Salsa (Energy Snack), and Chicken Taco Soup for dinner!!!  Tell me that's a diet:)  And have a wonderful week!!
