My name is Andy Cole and this is my Thrive Experience.
I am a 37 year old husband, dad of 2 little girls (7 and 4) and a hunter. I am in law enforcement and work 12 hour shifts. As a NIGHT SHIFTER, I flip back and forth from days to nights.
I caught the “bug” as I continued to read stories of people finding energy, sleeping better and stating their lives were changing. I found myself more-so a “couch cushion” than actually being a part of my kids’ lives. I wasn’t doing much of anything to stay engaged with them. I was taking probiotics to help me stay regular and still felt like an over-sized slug! I was tired of being “that” person and just wanted something to help me feel better.
Pre-Thrive, I had just started getting into cycling; road and trail, but found recovering from this new activity was a challenge. With that being said, wanting to get back in the saddle and ride again never happened. I had attempted other programs, but for me, long term and the regiments of multiple capsules, strict diets, and knowing when and what I was allowed to eat, was TIRING!
I continued to watch and read Thrivers’ posts and stories, which at the time I didn’t realize, but all this was planting seeds in myself that were growing. For almost two years! Finally, I reached out to my friend. We chatted and connected me with a friend of hers to help explain what Thrive was and how it worked. As soon as I heard 3 easy steps and within 20 minutes of my day... I was sold! I ordered and was given three days to get me started until my order arrived. My friend guided me through days 1-3, checked in on days 5, 7 & 10. (This was helpful and what I do myself, with the friends and family that I have introduced Thrive too.) Within five days into my journey I noticed; my sleep was so much better, I was able to fall asleep easier, slept sound, felt refreshed when I woke up and was ready to start my day running. I found myself actually WANTING to get moving and go out and play with the girls! I WANTED to get off the couch! I WANTED to ride my bike again!
