Everyone on this planet was glad to see the back of last year. Never have we all been challenged and tested so much physically and mentally, but you know what, we did it! We survived the doomed year of 2020. In and out of countless lockdowns, rules changing every five seconds, most people eating their body weight in chocolate, trying to work from home, taking on the role of teacher, binging on Netflix shows, it really was an epic headmelt. You are all absolute rockstars for getting through it and coming out the other side in whatever shape or form that is.
But for me, as the year drew to a close with so much uncertainty, one thing I knew for sure was that I had the focus, determination and positive mindset to go skipping and leaping into 2021 and get ready for the most incredible year of my life.
Now don’t get me wrong. I wasn’t always this excited and positive about the impending doom of January 1st which for me resembled a promise to myself to kickstart again an endless cycle of diets and exercise regimes in a half assed attempt of a New Year’s Resolution.
I would be standing on the scales with a huge sigh, shoulders slunked over and cursing myself for having drank my body weight in baileys, prosecco and Sauvignon blanc along with binging on anything edible in sight.
Well this year my friends, I came leaping and jumping into the new year with a bang already half way through my amazing lifestyle journey – nearly 2 stone down in weight and 31 inches lost all over and all this with an under active thyroid in tow.
For years I have tried to lose the weight I gained after my babies and having developed an under active thyroid the struggle was real, and don’t get me started on the daily fatigue….. I was like a permanently exhausted pigeon. You name it, I tried it. Practically every diet known to man, slogging it out in the gym and never having the body to warrant the gruelling workout sessions. Then came the slimming clubs, what joys they were…..
Each week you were lined up like cattle, told to stand on scales in front of everyone, the weekly humiliation if you didn’t lose any weight. It was enough to send you running to the funny farm. This is not normal I thought to myself, there has to be a better way.
Naturally my better way at that time was surviving on pretty much a can of red bull (large) and a croissant for breakfast or sometimes even skipping breakfast altogether. Lunch was practically non existent and then some salad or rice creation for dinner. It was like that Janet Jackson song, take two steps forward and about 10 back. This was my life and thinking I had to just accept it was never going to change. I came to this conclusion in my finest Bridget Jones moment with wine in hand belting out my best rendition of All By Myself. But unbeknown to me, my life was about to take a 360 and for the better.
Having seen a celebrity lose a huge amount of weight and tone up throughout the summer I started to take notice of what lifestyle programme she was on, then by a miracle one of my best friends sent me a photo of her progress and I stopped right in my tracks. Lisa had popping abs and was absolutely glowing. “Whatever it is your doing I want it” I said to her.
Two days later I had a box full of my goodies and about to embark on my lifestyle journey with Herbalife Nutrition and have not looked back since. My energy is through the roof, the weight is falling off me and I’m finally getting a toned body which I thought would never be possible. Yes I still have a bit to go to get to were I want to be but never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I could look or feel as good.
What is even more incredible is the amazing community filled with like minded people all wanting the best for everyone. Daily workouts, positivity huddles, recipe ideas, snack ideas, meditation, mega fit camps, the list is endless. All this knowledge and support 24/7 at your fingertips to refer to whenever you need it and to fit in with your lifestyle.
The results that everyone is achieving is nothing short of incredible and so inspiring. Below are just some of the amazing results.
Sharing my journey along the way I have started to help others who have naturally gravitated to me and want to look and feel the same. I want to shout from the rooftops just how incredible my experience has been and if you don’t want to take my word for it then read on to hear from just a few of the incredible people I have met along the way who are now such good friends and who want to share their journey too. Get ready to be very inspired……..
I’m 48 and a full time teacher and single mum. I came across Herbalife by accident. Having never heard of it before I thought why not and the person introducing me to it was handsome and seemed like he would be good support.
After my first couple of days my energy levels went through the roof! I started to feel and notice changes in my body. I had got rid of my muffin pouch and love handles all within my first 21 days of taking the products. This is when people started to ask me what I was doing and that’s when I spoke to my sponsor and I began to help others do and feel the same! They were getting results and then by word of mouth and my social media I built up quite a few clients.
Very soon I began to build and support a team of people who followed what I was doing and they too began to help lots of people reach their goals and build their own teams and I reached Active World Team in my first 6 months of being in the business and I continue to love what I do and help and support people become healthier and happier and build my business in my spare time.
I honestly feel that being part of a positive community like this has helped me get through 2020 especially with all this negativity going around. I feel amazing and in the best shape of my life at 48. I’ve learned so much about myself and grown as a person and became a better version of me and continue to do so! I’ve jumped out of my comfort zone so many times and push myself almost daily now. It’s scary but so satisfying!

My name is Sam and I’m a world team member with Herbalife. I joined on 10th May last year after being on the products for a mere 3 days. I got on a plan as I was not in a good place in life, my anxiety and stress was literally through the roof after my business closed. To say I was lost would be an understatement.
I came across my coach and sponsor on social media and listened to his story which I resinated with and I wanted that passion and drive and energy back, not to mention the focus and mental awareness. I had nothing to lose at this point and with an open mind ordered my plan.
Within 3 days my energy, alertness and clear mind was unbelievable and my mindset was changing. I wanted to get involved as I believed everyone should feel this amazing and that’s when I joined the business. My journey to date has been incredible. I have made so many friends with positivity surrounding me and in turn my positive outlook on life is infecting others!
I was always slim but would say skinny fat as I wasn’t happy with certain parts of my body and my atheistic has changed so dramatically. Anyone reading this and thinking they would like to change should just give it a try! This is not about gender or genetics of age! I’m nearly 45 and I’m in the best shape of my life, physically and mentally. I hope this short insight into my journey helps anyone that would like more in their lives.

I have worked in management alongside my sisters in our family run business Blue Bell Lodge Private Day Nursery in Bangor, from it was established 12 years ago.
9 years ago at the age of 29 during my first pregnancy I developed gestational diabetes which never left after my daughter was born so I am now a type 1 diabetic and insulin dependent. I have always taken my health very seriously, eating healthily and walking regularly to help keep my health at its best, not only for me but for my young family also.
Despite committing to this healthier lifestyle, I never felt satisfied nutritionally and knew that my outward appearance never reflected how well I looked after myself. Almost 7 months ago I knew I was undernourished and made a decision to become a healthier version of myself so I could have peace of mind that my immunity was also at its best.
I incorporated Herbalife Nutrition into my daily routine and I’ve never looked back as I’m blown away that I now look and feel the best I’ve ever done. This nutrition has transformed me physically, nutritionally and mentally. My anxiety has decreased, my confidence has increased, I am sleeping better and my overall thought process has changed enabling me to manage daily life events in a much more healthier way.
Surrounding myself with the positive community that Herbalife also offers has been incredibly uplifting in every way. To follow more of Gemma’s journey you can check out her insta here – Gemma
My life essentially changed on the 22nd June 2020 when I say I found Herbalife it was really Herbalife that found me. It was lockdown, I was homeschooling a 15 year old who was doing his GCSEs, I was looking after a 3 year old on my own whilst working full time for the NHS and being re-deployed to the Recruitment team to recruit doctors and nurses through the surge. I felt like every day was Groundhog Day and I was literally fatigued. I was boredom snacking working at home and being able to go to the fridge and lift out anything that was quick and convenient, but wasn’t always healthy.
I then seen a guy on Instagram who turned out to be my coach in April getting unbelievable results whilst everyone else was getting a fluffy COVID body. I reached out to him and asked what he was doing and he said Herbalife. I was a massive sceptic and I didn’t reply to his message until two months later.
Starting on a breakfast plan by the time I had my first shake something just aligned with me and I then purchased more products that I could have for my lunch also. Now I think it was a no brainer and don’t know why I was so indecisive about joining. They say hindsight is a virtue and it really is. I wish I could have told myself years ago to do this.
From taking the products for 21 days I got an incredible result, I had popping abs, I had booty gains. By day 3 I thought someone had turned on a light switch and I became alive. I also currently suffer from an under active thyroid which usually means I am generally fatigued and find it difficult to lose weight. However, since being on Herbalife I’ve achieved incredible results not just aesthetically but also mentally. My mental wellness has elevated so significantly. My son seen I got such amazing results that he jumped on a plan too.
Because I got such good results people were organically and naturally attracted towards me and started to ask me what it was I as doing so I naturally began a business with Herbalife. I am now at world team level which means I am helping about 80 people in total become the best version of themselves. I’ve never felt or looked so good. I am 38 however I feel 28 and I have stopped living for the weekend and now live for the day. To follow more of Lisa’s journey click here – Lisa
Wow what a journey. I started my journey on 10th June, a day I’ll never forget because it has changed my life in health, wealth and purpose. I feel the best I’ve ever felt and look the best Ive ever looked at the young old age of 34 and a single mum.
I turned to Herbalife Nutrition to help me with dropping body fat as I’d gained over a stone in lockdown and everything I was doing to try and lose it was not working. I was running, I wasn’t eating a lot at all (in fact one meal a day and a red bull for lunch) – the fat was not shifting I felt awful. I had anxiety, I was always tired and miserable and always bloody hungry. I was given a plan to eat 5 times a day and including eating carbs, not going to lie this sent me into panic mode! I’d never eaten 5x a day in my life! And carbs how I could I eat carbs if I wanted to lose weight! But I trusted the process and stuck to the plan like glue, because what I did I know (I’m very sure the 300 scientists on the board, 50 PhDs and one Nobel prize winner know more than me). What I thought I was meant to do clearly wasn’t working, so I needed to change to get a different outcome.
By day 3 I felt amazing. My anxiety had disappeared, I felt full of energy and all over fabulous! I still had my doubts and was convinced I was going to gain weight, but I felt so great I didn’t want to let that feeling go. I took photos of my journey to track progress – I never stood on the scales once . At the end of my 21 days I was shocked with my results! The progress in my photos was insane! I’d never achieved results like this in my life! I’d always been an avid gym goer, 1 hour at a time 5x a week (never looked like I was a gym goer though). I had never ever ever saw any progress from the gym – ever (yet I weirdly kept going and doing the same and expecting a different outcome – how stupid was I).
Whaaahooooo finally I’ve now got results and it only took me 21 days! I now eat more and exercise less, yet I look like I eat less and exercise more! Absolute madness – the power of good nutrition! I have muscley arms, I’ve never had muscles in my arms (I don’t lift weights, I’ve just exercised 3x a week, 20mins HIIT workouts)!
The products are amazing, world leading. I’m no longer on a weightloss plan as I don’t need to lose weight, however I do want to make sure I continue to get the nutrition my body needs, so I will continue to use these world leading products for the rest of my life! It’s all about balance and consistency! I feel bloody amazing!
But it doesn’t stop there! It gets even better. Of the back of my results and talking about how amazing I feel and sharing my journey on social media I’ve been able to build a successful business helping other people with their nutrition and to become healthier and happier. It’s absolutely mind blowing what this company offers as a business. It’s basically as business in a box.
As I said earlier I’m a single mum! Im a legal PA and I work 3 evenings and 2 days so that I can drop my daughter to school and collect her. This has meant I’ve missed out on so much due to work commitments. I’ve always been looking for answers for the past 9 years on how I can create more freedom so I don’t have to miss out on my daughter, how I can find a career I love, how I can become my own boss with zero risk and investment, how I can earn more money without having to take a drop in income first, how I could help people on a huge scale (this is something close to my heart because when I was in my darkest moments I wished I’d had support from someone who understood me) and create a purpose for myself.
FINALLY FINALLY! I’ve found the answers! Herbalife Nutrition the company that builds dreams. I’m now helping other people with both their health and wealth and it’s amazing and my only regret – I wish I’d found it sooner. If you’re looking for an answer, a solution or an opportunity grab this company with two hand and use it as a vehicle to make your dreams come true! All aboard the dreambuilding bus!
