“I started using Zija products almost four years ago, after I gave birth to my last baby. I was 190 lbs. and 37 years old with a newborn (who did not believe in sleeping more than an hour at a time), an active toddler, and a disabled 10-year-old who solely depended on me for her care. I was overweight, out of shape, and an exhausted hot mess!
Before Zija, I just wanted to sit at home, drink wine, and not do a whole lot. I was embarrassed about my weight. I had zero energy to do anything. I was struggling with keeping up with a toddler and with my daughter’s care. My daughter, Makenzie, uses a wheelchair because of her Cerebral Palsy. My husband would assist with transferring her in and out of bed, but as her mom, I was responsible for bathing. It was getting to the point where I wasn’t able to lift her into the bath seat.
My back hurt, my knees hurt, and I was exhausted all of the time. I knew nothing would change on its own, but I didn’t know how to change it, and I didn’t have the energy to work out. I tried everything—other weight loss programs, other network marketing companies, even medical-grade weight loss programs. Nothing worked. At 37, it wasn’t looking good for me. I accepted the fact that I would be overweight and unhealthy.
That was until I met Missy. She was a sub on my husband’s softball team, and we struck up a conversation. She gave me a sample of XM+ to try. I was amazed at how good it tasted, and the energy I suddenly had! For someone who got very little sleep, it was incredible to feel so good and finally get something accomplished around my house! From there, I was sold on Zija.
I started taking XM+ for the energy, but I quickly found there were so many other benefits. I was alternating between SuperMix and XM+ daily plus taking XMburn and Premium Tea. Within the first two months of this routine, I watched 25 lbs. melt off! After five months, I was down 40 pounds!
I started craving more water, healthier foods, and less soda pop. I wasn’t as hungry anymore, and I was detoxing out all the toxins that were making me feel so tired and overweight. I work a full-time job for the State of Michigan, and I often would fall asleep at my desk. The energy I have to make it through each day has been amazing. It was incredible to find a simple system of nutrition, energy, appetite suppression, and detoxing that could be so effective! It fits so perfectly into my life.
I know a picture is worth a thousand words, but even my transformation picture doesn’t begin to tell what Zija gave me. I was able to keep up with a very busy 2½-year-old boy who is now six and plays T-Ball. I even coached his team this past season! I could never have done that when I was 190 lbs. and tired all the time! I was able to care for a very fussy infant without being overly frustrated and without being too tired at work the next day. My patience with him was going fast before Zija. Now he is about to turn four years old, and I’m able to keep up with him, even when he steals my SuperMix from me!
The best advantage by far is what it’s done for me physically with regards to caring for my daughter, Makenzie. Makenzie has always been in a wheelchair, and now that she’s older, she has personal needs for bathing and such that only I can take care of. Before Zija, I worried about how long it would be before I couldn’t help meet her needs. I would have to get an in-home nurse to care for her, and I didn’t want a stranger doing that. Since I lost weight and gained muscle, things have changed significantly. I can now lift her up more comfortably than ever before. I have the energy (and desire) to go to boot camp regularly to help build more muscle so I can continue to do this for many years to come. I can do all the personal care for her, and I even run 5k races with her! Never in a million years did I think I would be running 5k races pushing her through them.
I’m an active mom, and I love it! I never thought at 41 years old I would have so much energy! Zija has given my family so much more than they know! Thank you, Zija, for these incredible life-changing products!”
