My Thrive 8 Week Experience

Hi! I am Tara Buck and this is an update to my Thrive 8 Week Experience. I began the 8 week experience on January 2, 2015. To date, I have seen significant changes in my energy level, appetite control, and weight management/loss. I am super excited about how easy it is to use this 3 step system and meet my health goals for the new year! I have been sharing my story with others I know/meet and this has allowed me to take part in the awesome referral program that Le-Vel offers: refer two and your products are FREE. Thereby saving me money and helping me with my overall health goals! Does it get any better?

So the background story of my experience: After trying Thrive out for three days with a 3 day experience that I received from Shaunda Sostand, I began the Thrive 8 Week Experience with the Women’s Lifestyle Pack + DFT. I have had tremendous success with the products and know that I am a THRIVER for life! I take the 2 capsules with a large glass of water, blend the lifestyle mix with ice and skim milk so I can have it as a shake and apply the DFT to my arm. Simple steps, but powerful feeling.

I am a wife and mom with two small children and we are all about enjoying day trips to the park, museum and other various play places. My kids love to be on the go and neither of them nap, so I really need the energy to keep up with them and to still enjoy my husband’s company when he gets home from work. Not only does Thrive help me to keep up with all of the things I have to do in a day, but I am overall feeling much healthier and happier with my own body image. I am proud to share this picture with my results so far.

I was not happy with where I began – at a weight that was my highest and also the weight I was when I was pregnant with my children, so not being pregnant at the time and still seeing that number on the scale was driving me crazy. I feel like I am making healthier food choices, have quit snacking all the time and have the energy to do so much more each day, but have not incorporated an exercise routine as of yet. As I continue with Thrive I foresee, I will add exercise to my weekly plan. I am really just so happy that the number on the scale is always coming down! Keeps me motivated to stick with Thrive and do more for myself!

#SocialChallenge Day 2: Three Legitimate Fears

Three legitimate fears I have are Failure, Success, and Trust.

A fear of failure I believe came from being a perfectionist and wanting to always satisfy those around me. I was scared that if I wasn’t perfect that I wouldn’t be loved.  Strange as it seems this continued into the next fear I had which is Success.  A fear of success comes from not understanding it.  I feared that I would be so successful that  Iwould lose who I truly am.   Also what do you do when you are successful?  As I have walked into my destiny these past 3 years, this has become a reality.  Success can sometimes be lonely, you find out very quickly who your true friends are, who acquaintances are, and who are those that truly are just haters.  Those that are your true friends are a very small amount, I can count mine on one of my hands.  This is my tribe.  I am very protective of my tribe and it takes a lot for me to allow someone into my tribe.  Which brings up my next fear, trust.



It’s not so much that I don’t believe in trust or am scared of trust.  I am the type of person that trusts too early.  I have had to learn the hard way to learn not to do this.  So I am fearful of my own ability to trust to easily. Because of this, sometimes, I can seem unapproachable or protective.  I have had relationships that haven’t worked out, where I intimately trusted these people and they betrayed me.  Betrayal is the hardest thing I have ever had to overcome.  The answer to this is Forgiveness.  True forgiveness sets you free and allows you to move forward.  So even though I have these fears, I have learned to handle each one when they come up in my life.  I remember the lessons I have learned, as hard as it has been.  Knowledge is power but without Wisdom it is Powerless.  Learning from the lessons life brings to you is wisdom and knowing that there is a higher power in control that is wisdom.  So I am grateful that even though I may have fears, I can overcome them.

Don’t let your fears dictate your future and keep you from your destiny and your passion.  Be well.
