My name is Rachel Gilley and this is my 8-Week Thrive Experience:
Like most, I’m a busy person. I am a mom, wife and career woman in construction. I have 3 boys ages 23, 9 and 7 – yes, I started over. My husband is in Real Estate which, as most are aware, has had it rough over the past few years. Both my husband and 2 little boys have ADHD and are challenging to deal with.
In April of 2014 I decided to switch to a different construction company so that I could have more freedom to be with the family hoping to make things better for us. It did. But I have been dealing with being tired, mentally exhausted, bodily aches and a lack of overall wellbeing! I wasn’t the positive, “we’ll figure it out”, always smiling person I used to be! I was tired of being tired, and tired of sleeping half the weekend just to make it through the week. Thus the why!
I met another mom in my youngest son’s class and was so jealous of how bubbly she always was. I used to be like that! I watched her for a few weeks, hoping to run into her each morning so that some of her bubbly could rub off on me. Then one day, I heard her talking to the kids’ teacher about Thrive. I had not heard of it! I had been trying all sorts of products – vitamins, drinks, anything with a glimmer of results – so that I could get me and have better health. As I stood there listening, I realized how the teacher (already a hero) was able to deal so well with the kids and decided to butt in. After they explained the product and showed me the DFT Foam I asked about a sample which I bought (5 days). I wasn’t skeptical, I was hopeful.
I followed the instructions even cutting out my caffeine completely. Day one and two…nothing. I was almost sad. Day three…BAM!…up before my alarm clock, wide awake…and it was a Saturday! Day 4 and 5, even better! I had to wait 2 weeks before ordering my first month’s product and it was the longest 2 weeks! The thing I missed the most in those two weeks was the mental clarity I had while on Thrive! I don’t understand how I functioned with all that fog.
So now I’ve been on Thrive for 8 weeks and couldn’t be happier with the product! I sleep awesome and don’t wake up ‘creaky.’ I can walk up and down multiple flights of stairs at work without huffing and puffing and having to stop and stretch my knee! My family loves me! I am a Thriver and a Promoter! Even my brother – the grouchiest person in the world – contacted me about Thrive.
Thank you Linda Stapleton and Betty Hastings first and foremost for being the Wife of a Police Officer and an Awesome Teacher! But also for talking about Thrive that day in the classroom. It has changed me and my outlook on life! I got ME back and know that I can take on the world like I used to! And, I will NOT let my family be in the same financial rut that we have been in for the past few years!
Next Christmas, I WILL be Debt Free!
