Down With Tummy Frown—Week 4

4 Weeks-Compare

Well, I haven’t lost my Tummy Frown yet. But there is a major difference in the abdomen area after four weeks, as you can see in the comparison photos!

My goal for this 28 Day Detox boot camp was to change the Tummy Frown into a Tummy Pucker–a regular belly button 🙂 –and to be healthier. I was excited, but I was also anxious about starting the boot camp. I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to eat anything and would become discouraged.

I soon discovered that using the Arbonne healthy, yummy products, adhering to the meal plans and shopping lists, and learning how to eat healthy made my life so much better! I lost 7 lbs. and overall 20 inches in this 28 day challenge.

I also lost major puffiness under my skin—especially apparent on my back, shoulders, and arms. The puffiness was a result of inflammation and toxins in my body. My massage therapist has been amazed at the loss of inflammation and how much better my skin has become. My chiropractor is so excited that I am following this path — especially with Arbonne because of their excellent products and the support in the Facebook groups.

I am sleeping better at night, I have so much more energy in the day, and I don’t have the awful, daily cravings for unhealthy food that I used to have. That doesn’t mean I don’t still have cravings, but they aren’t as often or as strong. In fact, I turned 64 during this boot camp. My lovely coworker brought a chocolate cake with buttercream icing to work to celebrate and “just in case I might want a little piece.” The rest of the department enjoyed my birthday cake–boy did they enjoy it! 🙂 I didn’t even sample the buttercream frosting. I really didn’t want it.

I’ve decided to continue this journey by participating in the next 28 Day Clean Eating Challenge. Maybe I can get that Tummy Frown closer to a Tummy Pucker. 🙂

I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!!!
