Yellow pea...that's P.E.A!

It's one thing to be ON trend...quite another to be light years AHEAD of the trend. We were "green" before it was cool. Vegan from the start. We've been using pea protein for a long time..way before Dr Oz & Shape Magazine  raved about it. And now we've got the FIRST plant-based retinoid on the market.

There are 4 factors to look at when considering a biz opportunity...timing & trends is certainly one! TWO billion (with a "B") dollar industries in ONE company. Glad Arbonne is ALWAYS ahead of the game!! 34 years & growing strong!!

58 lbs and 13.5" LOST!

Detox Boot Camp Results!

My team just finished up our first "official" Detox Boot Camp. I've posted results a few successes that I've seen, here's some results in a group setting!

The boot camp participants (total of 6 people) collectively lost 58lbs and 23 inches in the waist & hips!!! That's crazy right?! Actually, that's just amazing!!

We gave away $100 Arbonne goody bag to the BIGGEST WINNERS in the most weight lost and the most inches lost. Our weight winner lost 13.5lbs and our inches winner lost 8.5"!! Can you believe it?!? Although the detox is more about becoming healthier on the inside, I love that we get to reward people by seeing the numbers drop! Some people don't lose any weight but see a crazy decrease in inches! Great proof of turning fat to muscle and gaining energy along the way!

One of the participants posted the following about her experience with the detox:
"My biggest victory by far was resisting so many yummy treats and food! I had about 5 birthdays this month we celebrated and went out to eat a lot and I had to hold strong a lot and be picky and ask for lots of modifications everywhere we went, but learned I could and be ok! I plan to keep up with the shakes often as they are yummy and convenient, and the no eating after 7 rule was really good for me. I learned a bunch of great new recipes for eating whole foods that we now love! I actually think that has been one of my new hobbies I discovered on the cleanse is to find and experiment with healthy whole food recipes that are fairly quick, easy and yummy! I like that nutrition is on my mind constantly now, the detox has made me way more aware of everything I eat and I have since picked up some great habits. I have always liked working out and running, but to line up my nutrition with my running goals have been epic for me and I am excited to try and blow my previous PR out the window at my next marathon at the beginning of Dec.! Thanks Steph and Arbonne!"

I LOVE what I do! The people are real, the results are real! What are you waiting for! We're going to be starting another boot camp soon with finale prizes and weekly prizes this go around! We'll give you a meal plan for the whole 28 days along with motivation and tips to help you sustain your new lifestyle. Email me if you're interested in joining, I would love to help you in your pure transformation!! stefanie.e.joseph@gmail.com

Pure Transformation

 I heard the term Pure Transformation when I started my weight loss journey the end of May. I was hoping I would change physically but what I didn't know is the change that would occur inside and the change in my perspective of life in general. Dealing with postpartum depression with my son and only acknowledging it almost 2 years into it changed who I was and changed how I interacted with people. I was in denial that I had the depression and with the denial was the lack of acknowledgment that my interactions with others changed drastically as well. I was not a happy person but I didn't realize the severity of it.

Fast forward to today, October 5, 2013. I can honestly say that I am going through my own personal Pure Transformation. Through clean eating and changing the way I fuel my body, I have learned that we truly are what we eat! Our mood is directly related with the foods that we intake and I am so thankful that I learned this healthy way of living and a bonus...I am losing weight and inches!

My pure transformation is not about my physical looks, it's about changing my wealth and happiness as well! I am taking control of my life, taking control of my paycheck through a vehicle called Arbonne! I've said it before, I never envisioned myself being a part of network marketing. I never thought I would do the home party thing, but here I am because I BELIEVE in it! I believe in what Arbonne stands for and I believe that it will give me and my family the freedom that we deserve. It's not been a smooth path, but it's a path that I have chosen and will make the most of it. I believe in it because I have personally seen our products change peoples' lives. I get the opportunity to share these products with the world and be a part of people who want to change for the better! After attending training this last weekend, I know that this is not just about me, this about helping others realize their potential and realize that they can have 100% control of their life and finances. I get to watch people grow in ways that they never thought they could imagine! I have seen myself grow in the few short months that I've been on my new journey and I am making a resolution to grow on a daily basis!

My pure transformation is not about the weight I am losing anymore. It's about helping others through their own personal transformation! I'm so excited to step out of my comfort zone and be the leader that I know is hiding out inside. This passion is burning inside me and it's starting to get real hot!!

Back to my weight loss journey real quick...I am 120 days into my journey. I am down 20 pounds total and weigh less than I did before my wedding and before my 2 beautiful kids. (Can't find my measuring tape so can't give a number on the inches.)  I have lost my weight by only changing my eating habits. I know I can't keep this up without exercise so this is my next piece, just trying to figure out how to work it into the busy schedule. It needs to be a priority because I'm ready to complete this transformation but toning up!
