I made the decision to better my health 30 days ago. Thirty days ago, I thought I was going to do this basic challenge to lose a couple pounds, lose some bloat, and hopefully find a routine. I did not know thirty days ago that I would need this program, this company, the friends I’ve made, more than anything in my entire life.
This is probably going to be a semi long blog post, so if you’re really interested in seeing how much I’ve transformed in 30 days, strap yourself in.
My mindset or my body did not change immediately once I started the 30 DTHL challenge. Day one, I knew that I like the products and that they weren’t disgusting. I honestly didn’t think anything of it until I saw my pictures side by side on day seven. I had lost 3 inches around my stomach ALREADY. I then really began to focus on how I FELT, rather than how I looked. Unfortunately pictures only show you my outside progression, but towards the end of this blog post, you’ll get a glimpse on my mental progression!
This is when I really started to realize this was WORKING for me. THE HYPE Y’ALL, was out of this world. Now, I’ve tried many different things before: diets, weight loss programs, carb cycling, calorie countin’, certain meal plans, all the things. AND, in some of those things I did lose weight. BUT, I didn’t lose bloat, I didn’t gain energy, I still had horrible mood swings, headaches, cravings. I wanted literally EVERYONE and their mom to try this.
Since it was the same price to sign up as a consultant (make commission on sales) as it was as a normal customer to do the 30 DTHL challenge, I did that. It’s how I make a lot of my side hustle money here on walkoflaur, so it was a no brainer that I do that. I HAD NO INTENTION OF SELLING THIS. Literally, it was just in case someone saw me doing it and wanted to try it out.
Fast forward to week three. My body was bangin’, I was energized, I didn’t need naps, NO BLOAT, no cravings, my attitude was more positive, my skin was glowin’, I was happy, and there were NO SIGNS OF MY IBS. This is when I realized that I had to help people feel like this because when you’re constantly feelin’ crappy, your mind becomes so negative, and we forget how it is to truly FEEL good. We are not meant to feel like shit every single day of the week. We are not meant to want to stay in bed and do absolutely nothing. We are not meant to be constantly tired and unmotivated. That’s not what our body is supposed to feel like.
Now that my body was right, my health was good, I wanted to focus on self development. If you know me, you know I am negative nancy to the max. I tend to never see the good things in life. I complain. I compare. I worry. I stress. But truly, your mindset is everything. If you’re positive about life, life brings you good things. Whereas if you’re negative, you’re going to get negative outcomes. I began the book “The Secret” the last week of August. I began writing down positive affirmations, goals I wanted to achieve, things I was thankful for daily and it really made a huge difference. Not only did I feel good in my body, I felt good in my head. PSA: Gut health is a major contributor to mental health.
If you know me, you know I BATTLED with my job. So, of course, one of the goals I wanted to achieve was being able to work for myself. I wanted to be my own boss because I deserved to be my own boss. I deserved to be treated better than I currently was. Not even a week later, I was fired from my job. Not much of a crazy story, I didn’t fight my boss, or technically do anything wrong. That was honestly more shocking than anything. Instead of freakin’ out and going straight to all the negative thoughts, I immediately told myself “You literally asked for this. This is your sign.” and stayed COMPLETELY positive and completely stress free. I can tell you right now, had I been feelin’ like crap like I was before I did the 30 day challenge, I would be locked away in my room sleeping for 24 hours thinking it was the end of the world and IT WOULD BE.
I’m sharing this as best as I can because I want you guys to know that this has truly changed my life in ways I would have never thought JUST 30 days ago. I want everyone to be able to experience this, and everyone to be able to handle the bad things that life can throw your way. I have had such a strong back bone of support for you guys, my friends, and family and this wouldn’t be possible without y’all. So thank you thank you thank you, one thousands times THANK YOU. For those of y’all who have trusted me in helping you better your life, I am FOREVER grateful.

Fashion has lacked on my social media, and I am truly sorry. With the loss of my day job, I can’t splurge as much as I usually would! I will still be sharing all the cute fall outfits that I can until I get back on my feet! Whether you follow along with me for fashion, lifestyle hacks, blogging tips, health reasons, or for just funny stories, I hope you continue to stick around as I am being VERY vulnerable by letting you into my life even through the tougher moments. I also hope this shows you that life on social media is not all rainbows and unicorns and that shit happens to every person on this earth. No one’s life is perfect.
