Today, I’ve lost 30 pounds of pure blubber and over 12 inches off my waist. And thanks to Shakeology®, I don’t eat junk food and have been able to get my blood sugar levels under control. In fact, I’ve gone from 5 shots of insulin a day to just one. But the best part is that now I know I’ll be there for my children for years to come.
