It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.
~W. Edwards Deming
Recently there have been many changes around here.
I quietly went about making changes, never really intending to tell anyone about it nor was I convinced that the steps I was planning to take would make a difference but I had to do something.
We loved the changes so much, I became an Ambassador- SayHeyToPink.
Since childhood I’ve suffered with digestive issues.
Honestly, I thought everyone had gut wrenching heartburn and vomited at least twice each day. I assumed everyone had to think about each piece of food or drink that they ingested, reading labels and wondering if that couple of bites was going to hurt severely for the next several hours. Avoiding anything slightly acidic, spicy, fatty or having any flavor beyond a saltine cracker.
I was diagnosed with GERD, which basically is like filling plastic baggie with an over production of acid, zipping all but a section the size of your pinkie finger closed and squeezing it. Except the baggie is my stomach and the leaky seal is inviting acid into my throat constantly. (TMI- sorry) That causes burns in my GI tract, severe pain, inability to eat “normally” and a whole host of other issues that spawned from one bad ulcerated digestive system.
Very depressing stuff, my friends.
Then I had to undergo chemo and basically that was the final straw for my body.
I beat cancer BUT I felt awful 100% of the time during and years later.
I tried everything over the counter, prescription, home remedies and cut things I enjoy right out of my diet but found little relief.
For someone who loves to cook, meals had become a painful process both physically and emotionally.
Who wants to feel like they need to do an interpretive dance to appease the chicken on their plate, toss some salt over your shoulder and keep fingers crossed for luck, only to give up and make oatmeal because you know it wont hurt as bad to eat?
Did you know that you can live on mashed potatoes, cheese crackers, ginger ale and chicken soup for several years? I wouldn’t suggest it. That was just about all I could eat and know that it would stay there. I couldn’t understand how I had gained an extra twenty plus pounds, was starving all the time and still couldn’t eat.
Seriously?! I’m only thirty four years old!
I carry a cute purse so I have a place to conceal the rolls of antacids and my tooth brush.
The inside of my purse looks like an eighty year old cat lady owns it.
Saltine? View a picture of our cats on my cell phone screen saver? Napkin? Plastic Spork? Tums? Ginger Root Drops? Ketchup packet?
I couldn’t even eat ketchup!?
You know how awful your mood can be when you have been hungry and in pain for years?
Hungry and scared to really make many changes beyond survival mode because I knew I could handle where I was at. The only option I was given was surgery.
I struggled until a very dear friend came over to visit.
She told me how she started taking Plexus Slim and she’s no longer having the stomach problems that she did before. She was losing inches, pounds, felt like a million bucks and things were really looking up for her health. She had my attention and full skepticism.
For years we’ve compared crummy tummy stories so on her word alone, I was willing to give it a try.
She got me a 7 day pack of the Plexus Slim and Accelerator. All I knew was that it was all natural and was making one of my favorite people feel fabulous… and she was steadily losing weight, dropping inches without hitting the gym.
Skeptical of any changes, I joked with my Handsome Prince that I was being a guinea pig and he expressed a few concerns but agreed that if a little pink drink could help, I needed to try it.
The Plexus Slim that I put into my water bottle has raspberry pomegranate taste that I find refreshing. It is vegan, gluten free, sweetened with stevia and uses beet root extract that gives it a lovely pink color.
The first day, I felt more energized but figured it was all in my head.
By day three, the Handsome Prince was reading about it online (he is never a voluntary reader unless he’s on a mission) and was thrilled with the changes he saw in me.
Day four, I ate a Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich.
Not the brightest idea but it was one of my favorite occasional guilty pleasures from nearly a decade ago. I was feeling better than I had in years so I took a bite. I finished the whole darn thing and a few hours I went to bed and slept pain free the whole night. The next day I drank a very small cup of coffee without pain for the first time in over a year.
That’s the Meg equivalent to winning the lottery!
This awesome pink drink needed to be a part of my life.
I finished the 7 days of Plexus Slim and Accelerator.
In addition to feeling good, having great energy and experiencing no reflux, I also lost 3 pounds!
Hello… Did you hear that? No wretched fire in my throat and chest! That’s huge!
After nearly a week of no Plexus Slim, the Handsome Prince was so convinced by the results he had seen that we committed to drinking “the pink drink” together every the morning and ordered our 30 day supply. We use the Fast Relief line as needed. We just started using the ProBio5 and Bio Cleanse as well. (I’ll keep you updated on the results)
We both could stand to lose twenty pounds and that is a wonderful bonus of the all natural Plexus Slim but the additional benefits inside that tasty pink drink is remarkable!
It is like drinking positivity and good energy.
I’ve noticed that our skin is better, we both have less muscle fatigue and overall pain during the day. I’ve experienced less nights of insomnia, less afternoon sluggish feelings and have definitely increased my productivity during the day. I enjoy a good hike but now I feel like I have a little extra umph that propels me for an extra walk or hike far more frequently. The family really enjoys that unplugged time together taking it all in and talking. I don’t feel like I live in a personal fog and am trying to schlep through the day. I’m present, engaged, added Plexus Fast Relief to tackle the aches and I am no longer starving all the dang time. It feels amazing! I’m literally getting lighter in every way and doing it naturally!
Pinch me! I still feel like I’m dreaming!
I would have never believed that I didn’t have to feel so crummy.
I’m getting healthier and it is only positively enriching my life, my husband’s and each of our four children.

I started this journey having accepted that it couldn’t get any better for me, depending on large amounts of caffeine, sugar and at least a dozen Motrin to keep me going.
Since I started Plexus Slim and began to educate myself about the body I’m living in, it was simple to make necessary changes that I wanted for my life. I really have no desire for soda any longer, empty sugars or starches. I naturally choose water because I can feel the big difference it makes when I stay well hydrated.
I’m not dieting at all. In fact, I’m eating several smaller meals because I feel better and easily consuming more each day than I had previously but I’m seeing weight loss results too.
These are just the changes that I needed to happen so I could get back to the business of being a busy work from home wife, mother, offspring taxi, personal chef to the minions we created, human thesaurus, keeper of many exotic cats, that lady that keeps the neighborhood in cookies and finder of all missing items.
Most of all, I’m happy and healthy.
Words I never believed I would ever say.
Tiny Coffee Cup Cheers to the awesome changes taking place!
