Hi all, my journey of new beginnings will be on Dec. 19th at Wm. Beaumont Hospital in Troy MI.  I'm looking forward to having less pain in my joints, reduce complications of type II diabetes, breathe easier with less asthma related huffing and puffing; reduce tension on my heart with hypertension and stress; be alive to see my kids get married and see my future grandchildren.  Long time of yoyo diets, medications and just plain tired of excess blah weight/ how I look. 
I'm an active person all my life participating and leading youth in girl scouts, boy scouts and venturing.  I love camping, hiking and fishing, but added weight has cause slowed me down and can't do everything I once did.   Like cross country skiing and extended hiking.  As a Physical Therapist Assistant I have problems squatting down to my patients to work with them.
I did get approved by my surgeon to use Advocare meal replacement protein shakes, so as distributor I can get a reduce cost of purchasing.  I would be willing to share with other's this product and their line of well being to performance products.  I find their products as a tool to improve my well being.
