Weight Loss & Jewelry ~ FAB Friday Giveaway!


Today I'd like to introduce you to my friend Tezsia Mills the founder and designer of TEZ~MI jewelry. I've known Tezsia for about 3 years now. It's funny because we met on myspace through mutual friends, and have become good friends since. We've hung out together, had playdates and have really enjoyed getting to know each other. I just love Tezsia, she is such an inspiration to me. She's going to share with you her recent results on her 30 day Isagenix program. She had a baby not too long ago and wanted to do a cleanse to jump start her goal of getting the baby weight off. Along with sharing her results she has also offered to do a giveaway of her amazing hand crafted jewelry.
At the begining of the 30 day program I weighed 159 lbs. I currently weight 145 :0) I have lost a TON of inches and my butt shrunk.. my upper thighs .. I once again have had amazing results I went from a size 30 MEK jeans down to a size 28 right now thanks to the butt, thighs and waist.  My tummy is toning.. I started this when urban was 6 months old and people can't believe I have an 8 mo old child (just turned 8 mo) 

its amazing.. and I love it!!!!! 

 I am a happy Isagenix user and its amazing... helped me feel like "me" again so soon after a baby!  (ps im still doing the shakes ect.. I have about 5 lbs left to go, but I reached my personal goal!!! now I just need to tone!)



On the cleanse days I kept myself busy and packed my bottles of plain waters with me and in a cooler kept my premade cleanse bottles cold. It is easier I have found if you keep yourself busy it makes the time fly.  On day 1 of the cleanse it went pretty well but towards the end of the day I just wanted to go to bed, but by day 2 and I would say about at about noon I was full of energy.  I had read a lot of things having to do with toxins in the body and after getting my epidural I really didn't think those things "stayed in my body" especially because I could feel my toes and everything nor did I think that what I ate was bad for me. I have found after doing cleanses it almost feels like my body breaths better. Its a weird analogy to think of but its almost like when you have a bad cold and you can't breath and when you finally clear it up you feel better and function better. This is an all over function better, clarity.

What I am doing now since I have lost basically all of the weight  and that was within the 30 day program.  I still do the shakes in the morning its a fast breakfast.  I eat a Salad or a mixure of fruit and veggies for lunch and a very simple protein dinner. I am a girl who LOVES food. I mean I gained 60 lbs with my pregnancies.  I LOVE food!  So I don't starve myself nor will I eat cardboard and napkins.. I just use lemon juice on my salads now instead of heavy ranch or I'll pick apples and grapes over potato chips most of the time :0) 

Thank you so much Tezsia, it was great hearing about your experience on the cleanse, and I LOVE your before and after pics, you look amazing!!!

For the giveaway, she allowed me to choose from her selection and these are my two favorites. The winner will have their choice of earrings they'd like to have. 

Summer Dream

Congrats on your weightloss! I had heard about this cleanse (can't spell it) before, but was skeptical. Cleanses scare me! Your results look really amazing so maybe it's worth another look for me then. New follower from Friday Follow. Enjoy your weekend!

Wow...after having a baby, I've been considering doing something to get me going too. I'm terrible at this stuff! I've been looking at your posts on the Isagenix for a month or so now. Is there any way you could email some of the details with how it works and the cost of things?

Holly said...

She looks great in the before, too!! LOL! Glad she's where she wants to be again. ;D
Both earrings are cute but I have some similar to the chunky ones, so I'd probably go for the other pair. I have a skirt they would go perfect with. ;D

Lilibeth MacLean said...

When I first started the cleanse, I lost 7 lbs and 19 inches in 9 days. But, my most favorite result was the increased energy - I went from needing about 11-12 hours sleep a night to 6-8! I became a better mother as a result. I just love the quality of all the Isagenix foods.
