How I Went From Struggling with Baby Weight to the Best Shape of My Life
When you're a sleep-deprived first time mom, reclaiming your body is a struggle.
Before my pregnancy, I trained for marathons.
After giving birth, it felt like working out was a marathon.
I was understandably out of shape, but I thought I could whip up my old body in no time. I’d lost weight before, after graduating from college, and that was just a few years ago. All I had to do was eat clean and exercise for a few months, no big deal.
So losing baby weight?
I wasn’t concerned.
Until I actually started trying to take off the pounds, that is. The first few weeks went fine, with numbers dropping on the scale practically every day. But soon they started to go slower and slower and slower – and then they stopped dropping altogether.
I was stuck.
I thought maybe it was a natural part of aging. After all, I was 29 – my body was bound to start changing eventually.
But something in me just couldn’t accept it.
So I kept on trying. Yet no matter what I did, no matter how hard I pushed myself, those last few pounds just wouldn’t come off. I tried yoga, spinning, strength training, even keto – nothing worked.
Sure, I wasn’t pregnancy heavy by any means, but I could tell that I didn’t look like my old self. My thighs were a little too thick, my hips a little flabbier. And don’t get me started on the belly fat!
After months of futile programs and plans and diets, I had just about reached the end of my rope. I was done. I didn’t want to accept it, but maybe I had to live with it.
Luckily, that’s when I came across Califina and Spark, its plant-based weight loss thermogenic fat burning supplement.
Fat burner? Sign me up. It sounded interesting enough, and I was particularly interested in how it positively reinforces your pre-existing healthy habits. I had those on lockdown, so if this could amplify them… well, it sounded too good to be true.
Meet Spark, the Anti-Bloat Fat Burner
Spark made some sweeping promises: take two capsules twice a day before meals – once in the morning and once in the afternoon – and watch the pounds melt off! When combined with healthy eating and exercise, it also helps you see results faster so you’re motivated to stick with them.
Spark targeted my trouble areas with 2x the slimming power
Spark’s secret power lies in its two-pronged approach to weight loss. Its formula specifically targets two types of weight that everyone struggles with – body fat and bloating – with high quality ingredients.
The Science: To tackle bloating, Spark relies on tried-and-tested water retention relievers such as whole dandelion plant extract, freeze-dried parsley leaf, horse chestnut seed extract, and damiana leaf extract. Each of these ingredients has been used throughout history to ease bloating, and that tradition continues on in Spark!
For fat loss, meanwhile, Spark helps you out in a number of ways. One of my favorite ingredients is 5-HTP (5-hydroxtryptophan), a supplement that helps your body increase serotonin – which, in turn, helps curb your cravings! You can also find Paradoxine (a Grains of Paradise Extract that helps your metabolism burn off calories), antioxidants like quercetin and resveratrol, and a whole bunch of other goodies!
What Life Looks Like With Product: Best of all, my 30-day Spark supply came with full access to Califina’s nutritionists and trainers! It was like having my own personal cheerleaders. Whenever I had a question, the Califina team was there to support me. They taught me about Spark’s powerful, all-natural ingredients, how to use it effectively, and other healthy habits to help me get the most out of my weight loss journey.
With their help – and my daily dose of Spark – I finally started seeing changes in my body again! Everything that Califina claimed came true. Although I saw results quickly, I knew Spark wasn’t a quick fix – it was just helping me to amplify what I’d already been doing.
And that might be my favorite thing about Spark.
Spark isn’t a quick fix – it’s a long term lifestyle solution
Spark works with your body and your habits to give you real results. While other products may show you what you want to see, they’re temporary solutions to real problems, like overeating or lacking the energy to workout. Spark’s ingredients were scientifically-tested to address those issues and help you overcome them, not just change the shape of your body while you’re taking them.
Plus, many other weight loss supplements use stimulants and synthetic ingredients to kick your body into gear. This can lead to problems such as nausea, anxiety or jitters, and may cause long term harm to your body down the road. With Spark, you can trust you’re only getting natural, high quality ingredients backed by science!
Spark helped me take back control of my life
I’ve talked about a lot of Spark’s benefits here, and trust me, they’re well worth it on their own. But most of all, I loved how Spark made me feel motivated and in control of my life. I already knew that I had been putting in the effort, and Spark helped me see results. When Califina says every bottle is filled with positive reinforcement, they mean it!
With Spark’s help, I’ve lost all my stubborn pregnancy weight – and even a little bit more! I haven’t looked or felt this good in years, and I’m excited to continue my fitness journey.
Spark really is the secret to staying in shape year-round!
