At Yoli, we love hearing from people who have transformed their lives with the Better Body System. Today, we’re excited to share a great transformation story with you! Cindy Wieselquist first shared her transformation pictures with us on our Facebook page, and we reached out to learn more about her story. Here’s what she had to say!
When did you start with Yoli?
I started Yoli on Sept 3, 2017.
What made you decide to get started?
There are three reasons why I decided to start the Yoli BBS:
First, my new year’s resolution for 2017 was to lose weight before my 40th birthday (which was this past January 25th).
Second, my husband is in the military, and we decided to attend the military ball for the last time before he is going to retire at the end of this year 2018. We went on Oct. 16, 2017, and I was in my 2nd month of my BBS journey. I had lost 12 pounds and I felt really good during the military ball and had gained back my self-confidence.
And lastly, the one that really pushed me to start, was that I wanted to do something for my health. My mom passed away last June 2017, and we have really tough times for the last 2 years ever since she got diagnosed with leukemia. It was a wakeup call to me and my family that it’s time to do something for our health, and I knew losing weight was a good way to start. I have to decide to change my lifestyle habits, and I am so happy that I was able to do it since I started my Yoli BBS journey. My mom is my inspiration. And now I’m down to 133 lbs. from 160 lbs. and have lost tons of inches thanks to Yoli.
What is your favorite thing to eat on Protein Day? What about Meal Day?
My favorite food during Protein Day is just so simple. I love my hardboiled eggs and yogurt in the morning. For lunch I like a green salad with grilled chicken or sometimes tuna salad. I love my almond and pistachio nuts, and I love fish baked in the oven. On Meal Day I love grilled chicken as well, and for complex carbs I love sweet potatoes. I make it a simple and not complicated meal.
What’s your favorite Yoli product?
I love all that goes in the Transformation Kit. I tried Lean Greens, as well, and I love it. And Enzyme, too!
What obstacles did you encounter on the BBS and how did you overcome them?
It was tough at the beginning—Did I mention that I work at a fast food restaurant? I’m a manager and managers are entitled to have a free meal. It was really tough, but the rest is history now because I was able to achieve my goal. The good thing is that the restaurant has salads, so basically I live with salads the whole time with grilled chicken on it. We have fresh eggs, so I just eat the egg and cheese sometimes. Sometimes, I bring food with me. I learned to eat properly. I used to skip meals a lot and eat a lot at night, but now my bad habits are changed. Everyone at work thought that I could not survive on my BBS journey but I proved to them that they’re wrong and now everyone wants to try it!
What helped you be successful on the BBS?
Mindset, perseverance, and staying focused on my BBS journey helps me a lot, and of course the help of my coaches and the love and support of my husband, my kids, and my family.
What advice would you give to someone starting out on the BBS?
The advice I can give is stay focused on the BBS journey, have the mindset that you can do it, follow the meal plan religiously, and of course, have faith in yourself that you can achieve your goal.
How has your life changed since you started your transformation?
My life has changed a lot since I started my BBS journey. Physically, I have more energy and I feel so good about myself. Emotionally, it boosted my morale and self-confidence, and vanity strikes when you feel good about yourself. I’m very inspired to share my story with other people and few of my family and friends are enjoying the benefits of the Yoli BBS.
Is there anything else you want Yoli Nation to know?
I just want to say a big thank you to Yoli. What a great product they offer to all the people who want to have a big transformation in their lives physically, emotionally and financially. It’s been a blessing in my life since I started the Yoli BBS.
