Should I be concerned? *possible trigger* Ellie. 34 kids; Arizona 25371 posts

My really good friend started doing Herbalife a few months ago and became a distributor. Since then, I haven't seen her make ONE post on FB that hasn't been exercise, herbalife, diet, or food related. Pics of her food, pics of her body, etc.



Now, I'm proud of her and all, and glad she's accomplished what she has. Seriously. Having been on a weight loss journey before, I know how proud you can be of yourself, but what worries me, is the constant constant CONSTANT posts about it, nonstop working out (like.. hours a day), and then posting pictures like this... and saying that she still has a LONG way to go.... Do you think I should be worried about her and maybe talk to her about it? Or am I just paranoid?

Maybe she's referring to bulking up as far as "a long way to go" is concerned. Herbalife has an extremely high end firm of protein powder without a lot if the additives most does, so a lot if professional athletes use it for strength gain.

I hope that's what it is... I mean, she did post a pic of her abs the other day, and I could already see she had a 6 pack (you cant really tell in this pic) I just worry about the constant posts about it. It seems obsessive.

maybe long way to go fitness wise? Does she want to lose weight or tone?



My cousin is a distributor for those VS shakes thing. Every one of his posts is about it. But, that's too get people hyped up about it, kind of like free advertisement.

I wouldn't be that concerned, honestly. Every distributor I've ever known of any weight loss crap always does this. Advocare, ViSalus, Herbalife. You name it. It's like... A super pushy sales tactic, I think. I think your friend looks too skinny, sure, but not super unhealthy.

Ok.... I thought maybe for a minute that might be what it was... Maybe just to sell more stuff, but she just seems so skinny for her frame. And it worried me that she just kept saying "such a long way to go" but I guess it could just be muscle stuff.



I feel better now, and I wont have to worry about her so much. :)



Thanks guys!

Fitness becomes a way of life. It's pretty common to become obsessed because its all you and YOU are reaping 100% of the benefits. You have complete control over your success and rewards.

I heard on the radio today (not saying its a reliable place) that us humans thanks to social medias like Facebook, Instagram, etc., that we have become addicted to compliments.



You know when someone constantly posts about their weightloss, their weight gain, being ugly, being pretty, etc. Its a self esteem issue, of which is an addiction to constantly NEED that affirmation that you are better than you state you are from your friends and family.



Maybe she's not there, or maybe she is, I got to the point on some of friends, to "hide posts from wall", because their constant picture sharing of whatever, was getting on my nerves. Maybe you should try this with her?

I think that is such a dead-on observation.
