It’s been awhile since I’ve done an update, so I thought my blog post today should be an all-inclusive one: both my Skinny Body Care business and my Skinny Fiber weight loss journey. Here’s the skinny on what’s going on with me…
My Skinny Body Care Business
Last time I updated you, I had just advanced to a Silver rank. How are things going now? My Skinny Body Care business is doing fantastic! Since the changes were made to the Pay Plan last November, I am making more money than I was before. I earn a $25 – $90 Fast Start bonus for each sale I make ( it doesn’t matter whether it’s a new Distributor or Preferred Customer, the bonues depends on the type of product package purchased).
Think about those numbers for just a second… if you sell three (3) of our Gold/Premier packs of Skinny Fiber and just one (1) additional bottle of Skinny Fiber each week, that equals $250 (for a new, unranked distributor) and an extra $1,000 per month!! SBC is easier than any other business I’ve ever been involved in… EVER.
I’m also bringing in more team members and customers each week. Because of this, I’ve actually been in the top 10 on the Monthly Leaderboards every month. Take a look at where I’m at as of today (2/13/12):
And here’s January’s Leaderboard, on the last day of the month:
And now December’s Leaderboard, on the last day of the month:
Not too bad, eh? I’m very proud of the progress I’m making and really enjoying helping others reach their goals. I’m part of Team 6 Figures+ and an even larger team called the Skinny Dream Team. Between these two team and the leaders we have doing conference calls, webinars, and trainings, there is so much support and motivation that it’s hard not be excited! Have you taken a free tour yet?
My Skinny Fiber Weight Loss
It’s been a couple of months since I reported losing 16 lbs and 11.5 inches and I bet you’re wondering where I’m at now? Well, I’m still at 16 lbs lost… I haven’t lost any additional weight… I’ve simply plateaued for the time being. As frustrating as a weight loss plateau can be, I am keeping in mind two important things that I want to share with you:
1. Weight loss plateuas are common, especially when you get to a healthy weight. If you recall, my original goal was to lose 25 – 30 lbs. I had drifted into the technically “overweight” category, but with the 16 lbs gone I’m no longer in that zone. I’m now down to a point where I have only few pounds left to lose… and that’s usually the hardest part. That’s why people often talk about those last 10 – 20 lbs being so difficult to lose.
2. Skinny Fiber is still working… and it’s time for me to start working too. I often said I don’t like working out and I’ve never really made it a priority. The fact is, those 16 lbs came off with me eating a fairly healthy but with few restrictions and virtually no exercise. I walked a few times and did some burpees and crunches, but never really consistently. I’m being honest here and it’s important to understand this because Skinny Fiber just made it easy to lose the weight because I didn’t have to do much except remember to take the pills.
These last few pounds are going to require a little more effort on my part, but I’m ok with that. I’m willing to work for it! I know Skinny Fiber is still working because I can feel it – I still get fuller faster and have a decreased appetite. But more importantly, I’m not regaining my weight back. To lose those last few pounds I’m getting more focused on what I’m eating and fitting in some exercise now too. To keep my accountable, I’ve started blogging about it – Tasty Tuesday recipes and Fiteness Fridays – so keep a lookout for those!
So there you have it! That’s what”s happening with me. I’d love to know what you think and hear how you’re doing, so leave me a comment below!
