Maida’s Story of Perseverance: Thriving with her Health Tribe

2016-02-07-16-56-08

Maida and I at the age of 16

It is then true when they say: “If you want something done, give it to a busy person!”. Here is my oldest friend, Maida, when asked to write just a few lines about how well program and support are working for her, Maida, in between running a busy office at the major University in the United States, packing for her trip home to Europe in 48 hours, and everything else in between – finds time to also pour her heart and soul into this wonderful story that is so inspiring and brought a tear to my eye. It is also a testament to a great friendship as one really has to love you to trust you enough to follow your lead and ask for help with something so personal, and then live to tell such incredible story…

“Sanela and I go way back. A long time ago when there was no Herbalife and we were just kids and best friends, Sanela was all about healthy, organic nutrition and exercise. I was probably one of her first clients and faithful listeners because not too many people at the time talked about food so much. She was always so passionate about it. It was only natural to join Sanela on my Herbalife journey.

Sanela has been an inspiration and I am so happy we have been friends for over 30 years. I started my journey with her during a time in my life when I was overwhelmed with multipleΒ  things and needed clarity on this thing called wellness. Although things did not happen right away and it took multiple attempts, the lessons she taught me never left my head and made an ever lasting impact; these lessons are valuable.

Herbalife is easy, convenient and healthy. It is tasty. No, you will not get hungry and yes, if you have a sweet tooth, some of the products such as my favorite banana caramel, will help you satisfy your craving. With two shakes a day, a generous healthy meal, and two snacks- high in protein, limited in carbohydrates- you will achieve a perfect balance for the day that will keep you smiling. The pounds will come off, you will start feeling better, your energy will go up and who doesn’t like to look and feel better?! Don’t look at the scale too much (yes, I learned my lesson), but focus on overall health and lifestyle. You will wake up one day feeling like a brand new person and suddenly, it won’t be a chore anymore, but a normal every day habit and lifestyle. Your confidence will soar, you will start loving yourself more, the days will be sunnier, the sky will have a different shade of blue and the compliments…. well, they will give you an extra boost. After all, we want to love ourselves so others can love us too.

The brilliant Eat Clean support group led by our wonderful coach is my tribe. These ladies are strong, successful and smart women who are just average people like you and me who want to work on bettering themselves. We are working women, single, married, aunts, sisters and moms from different walks of life with one common goal, to be healthy. Herbalife supports our journey, but we have also learned so much about nutrition. We share recipes, food ideas and every day ups and downs. We give emotional support, tough love and we do it with an open heart and honesty. No judgment, just understanding. I now put great thought into creating my meals. I know what I need and what I want and how to differentiate. These ladies keep me inspired every day.

Sanela, THANK YOU! Not only are you the oldest friend I have, but you are also an amazing coach who simply cares. You don’t just talk the talk, you walk the walk, and for that I trust and respect you. Thank you for always being there and never judging me. Thank you for sharing your knowledge, experience and love with such grace and patience. You rock! It is my last attempt. I so far lost 27 lbs and I feel ME, again. Here is to climbing to the top!

Final advice, don’t listen to negative comments. Herbalife is easy and convenient. It is proper, balanced nutrition to help you achieve perfect nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Give it a chance, you won’t regret it. You do this for YOU, no one else!”
