® slim & sassy INSPIRATION ® KIMBERLY CLUFF Lost 38 lbs during the competition. Since the end of the competition, she lost a total of 56 lbs! Kimberly's story Being a mother of eight children keeps my life pretty busy! After I had my fifth child, I was able to lose all the pregnancy weight and get back to 120 pounds. Unfortunately, after my last three babies, losing weight became a struggle. Not only could I not keep the weight off, I also gradually started putting on more weight. I felt trapped, trying everything I could possibly think of to regain control of my body. I tried many weight loss products on the market. I would shed a few pounds during the first three weeks, and then plateau. I was stuck with unnecessary weight that would not go down, no matter what I did. Products Used I eventually gave up and gradually put it back on. I did aerobics, trained for and ran a half marathon–all without losing a pound. After completing the half marathon, I was on crutches for two days because I developed major plantar fascitis in one foot. I couldn’t exercise for several months due to the pain and fatigue. For the last 10 years, I had been experiencing low energy and fatigue, which prevented me from reaching my potential as an individual and a mother. I had tried a variety of health and nutritional products and read many health books. The doctors kept telling me that there was nothing wrong with me; I couldn’t find any answers or solutions to my situation. My circumstances worsened and I felt like a limp rag doll most of the time. • Slim & Sassy® Metabolic Blend (Item No. 31370001) • Slim & Sassy TrimShake™ (Item No. 35200001) • Lifelong Vitality Pack (Item No. 34210001) • GX Assist (Item No. 35040001) • PB Assist+® (Item No. 35160001) • Mito2Max™ (Item No. 35310001) 6 / winter 2014 living magazine I want to kick my unhealthy eating habits and replace them with good ones so I can be an example of healthy living for my eight children.
