Transformation Tuesday: Donna’s story. “I AM GRATEFUL💗2 years ago, March 16, 2016, I started my journey and lost 137 pounds! Two years ago was the day I looked at life differently. The day I knew I had to do something or I wouldn’t live long enough to see my grandkids grow up. The day I realized I didn’t want to live like this anymore. The day I realized I did not love myself for the person I’ve become. Until that day, I hid behind a smile that I thought would fool everyone. I was the heaviest I have ever been. I was very very unhealthy and in a very dark place. Every person in the world feels pain. Everyone experiences loss and sadness. No matter the situation, every person has their own way of dealing with their pain and weaknesses. Some people will wear their hurt and make it known that they are hurting and unhappy. Yet, I didn’t need the world to know that I was hurting. So instead I hid all my pain behind the most contagious smile! I may have appeared to be someone who was happy all the time. But I wasn’t. But I can tell you today, that I am no longer that person!! Since that day 2 years ago, I’ve become a new person and I feel absolutely AMAZING! I am so happy not only for the person I am on the outside, but how I feel in the inside! I no longer hide behind a fake smile. This smile is REAL😄. I am feeling the healthiest I’ve felt in a very very long time. I can keep up with all my grandkids! I can honestly say that I am enjoying life at its fullest. I am so grateful for this second chance at life. I couldn’t have done this without the support and love of my family and friends. I am VERY passionate about Innov8tive Nutrition and products that I truly believe in! I’m a walking billboard that these products really work. If I was able to do it, anyone can. 😊 — Donna Oriani Sambula.” *individual results may vary.
