Lose for MORE Challenge Winner—Mark Dodson

Congratulations to Star 1,000 Mark Dodson from Cortland, Ohio, a Lose for MORE Challenge winner! As a contest winner, Mark receives US$5,000, a trip to Utah for a dream makeover and photo/video shoot, two preferred seating tickets to the 2011 MonaVie International Convention, and lunch with Senior Vice President Jeff Graham. Here's what he had to say on winning the challenge, his experience with MonaVie RVL, and more…

This blessing could not have come at a better time.
"Being a winner in the Lose for MORE Challenge was a pipe dream for me. I never considered myself to be a real candidate. When I received the call that I had won, I was speechless. The timing was truly a blessing from God. My mother very recently passed on April 21. My family is very close, and the loss of my mother was devastating. We encouraged my father to move in with us so he could be closer to the family. My in-laws also live with us. Their health has been compromised with cancer, and they are currently undergoing treatment. My wife and I have been moving money around to manage our finances, and this blessing could not have come at a better time. My wife and I are committed to contributing 10 percent to the MORE Project.

A promise to make 2011 a wonderful year.
"When I was 35 years old, I weighed approximately 175 pounds and wore a 32 pant size. I enjoyed working out and staying healthy by exercising and eating right. At the age of 51, my priorities have changed with a growing family and a new career. My weight has not been a focal point as it has been in the past. I have been working midnight turn for the last 10 years and have developed poor eating habits. I managed to keep my weight around 230 pounds and wore size 38 pants. I accepted the fact that I was getting older and this was a natural process. However, at the end of 2010, I weighed 240 pounds and felt terrible.

"My blood pressure was up, my knees ached, and I started wearing size 42 pants. I knew inside that I was working myself to an early grave. I tried to eat right but did not sustain a healthy diet. My beautiful wife, Cheri, is thin and fit. I knew my weight was not very attractive, but she still loved me because she knew the man inside. My children are active and play soccer, but all I could do was watch. This was a very lonely feeling. My wife and I made a toast on New Year's Eve promising that 2011 was going to be a wonderful year.

Taking my life back with MonaVie RVL
"In January 2011, my friend and sponsor, Paula Lazzari, took me to a MonaVie event in Orlando. It was at this event that I made a pledge to take my life back and to get my health under control with MonaVie RVL.

"The MonaVie RVL products are amazing. The shakes taste wonderful and are very filling. They curb my appetite, and I know I am getting the proper vitamins and minerals. I have been taking two servings a day—one when I get home from work in the morning and a second before I leave for work each night. I eat a sensible meal for lunch and work out for at least one hour each day. By utilizing the weekly weight-loss charts and photos on, I could see real results. My confidence grew and the look on my wife's face was priceless. I have been approached by employees at work asking how I was losing so much weight. This is a great opportunity to share the MonaVie product line and opportunity. I am no longer embarrassed by my body. I have lost more than 40 pounds, and I plan to lose another 15 pounds to reach my goal weight of 180 pounds. I feel great today and look forward to playing golf, camping, and enjoying family activities again.

"I have experienced success, sorrow, and blessings. I know God is working in my life. I want to thank all my friends from MonaVie for their support and prayers. The first four months of 2011 have been so very rewarding thanks to MonaVie and the support from my upline. This has truly been a life-changing experience."

Ruby Executive Jack Hodges Reveals His Best Self

MonaVie distributors all across North America are revealing their best selves with MonaVie RVL. Here’s what Ruby Executive Jack Hodges from Cumming, Georgia, had to say about his new healthy lifestyle…

“When MonaVie announced that it was creating weight management products, I knew that my dream of getting to a reasonable weight was just a matter of time. Over the past 40 years, I had put on a considerable amount of weight since my college football playing weight of 200 pounds. Could I ever get back to that weight? I felt that given the opportunity and the right product—which I knew MonaVie would deliver—that I could achieve my goal of getting to a healthy weight.

“I made the decision to adhere to the program exactly as recommended, and it’s working! I’ve lost 58 pounds since beginning the MonaVie RVL program, and I have a goal to lose another 30 pounds. I know I can do this!

“Being a Ruby Executive in the Atlanta area, a lot of people see me and knew that I was overweight. So when I started having such great results with MonaVie RVL, people noticed. Many have started the program because they’ve seen me lose weight. Through social networking on Facebook, even more people have noticed. My old classmates are calling me to say that my results have inspired them; it is extremely important to me to know that somebody has gotten the confidence to undertake a change because they saw that I was able to do it.

“I’m here to tell people around my age that you can change your life at any time! All it takes is the proper mindset, a positive attitude, a motivated spirit, and the right product. MonaVie supplies the product; you have to do the rest. At 61 years old and nearly 300 pounds, I couldn't be sure that I would see my four grandchildren grow up and have children of their own. I want to spend many years with my wife enjoying our heirs. I also want to leave a legacy of a solid business and health and well being. This could only be experienced if we became the example and lived the life we advocated. Thank you, MonaVie!”

MonVie's Yokley Posts Second-Place Finish in Ohio

MonaVie racer William Yokley finished second overall at the John Penton GNCC UTV Race in Millfield, Ohio, on June 5. A torrential rainstorm made for dusty and muddy conditions, as parts of the motocross track lay several feet under water before the race began. Even so, William’s UTV ran almost flawlessly and he maintained his success early on despite skidding off the track and over an embankment at the second turn. William’s next race is June 26, at the Snowshoe Resort in West Virginia.
