Owning my own business

Ok, so I am in deep thought and would like to share it with you.  I would LOVE to stay at home and be with my child, so I thought of starting my own business.  This is not the only time I thought that.  I thought I would make it big selling Mary Kay, then Partylite.  Well, I'm not doing those anymore.  So, what makes me think I can do any better with Herbalife?  Well, I thought that since it is an internet based business, I wouldn't have to go out and get customers.  I already work full time at a call center, and a new mommy, so going out and getting customers is not something I wanted to do.  In order for this business to work, I need to make phone calls to get customers.  Now, this seems easy enough.  Well, it would be if I didn't want to spend time with my little one.  I guess I just don't have it in me to have my own business because my family is number one.  I really do want this to work, so I am going to take a few vacation days and see what I can do with the business, but I am afraid that if my ideas don't work, I'm going to have to be like every other working mom out there and realize that I can't strike it rich right now.

10 pound loss.  First one to lose it with proof of before and after pictures of feet on the scale, gets a prize soon to be revealed.  Starting Saturday, July 17.  Send in your before scale pictures and post in the comments.  Don't be embarrassed or ashamed, this is a safe place to receive encouragement and support on your weight loss journey!  Don't worry if you missed the ball with this challenge, there will be more.  As I said, I have 30 pounds to go! 

About Herbalife:
I decided to start my own career and lose weight, as well. I have joined Herbalife. They have plans to help you lose weight fast, faster, and fastest. In my first month, I lost 30 inches (overall) and 15 pounds. I have then discovered food again, and determined to start the program again. I am doing a challenge for all those willing to participate. Lose 10 pounds in 10 days. I can't do it alone, so I am taking my Herbalife products. I am eating a protein shake for breakfast and for lunch, and a sensible dinner, and drinking 80oz of water as well as taking some tablets that help increase the metabolism. I did it once before, so I know I can do it again.

Check out the shop Herbalife in the side bar for all their products.  I currently have a boatload of kits in my laundry room so I can get them to you lickety split.

I'll be starting Weigh-in Wednesdays to track progress.  And Measurement Mondays for folks like my friend who might be more interested in inches than pounds :) This is exciting, can't wait til my pants are falling off, haha!

Introducing me :)

Hi, my name is Kari. I am 30 years old with a 9 month old baby boy.  As most moms can attest, losing baby weight can be quite the challenge.  I know that I love food way too much to go on any diet. I don't like counting calories or trying to figure out how much exercise I need to do in order to burn the calories I just took in from my huge meal.

Five years ago, I had lost a lot of weight, and I was able to keep it off, thanks to my busy schedule and working  Retail. Now that I have a sit down job and a baby, I have found that I have 30 pounds I want to get off. Knowing that I will never be a size 6 again, unless I starve myself or go on Survivor, I am determined to at least fit into my summer clothes. I was a size 16 and now am between a 10-12.

Looking forward to kicking off the challenge and hearing more about your successes!
