Happy Birthday InstantLoss.com!
A year ago today I launched InstantLoss.com. Last year I started a bit of a stirring in the Instant Pot Community when I posted about losing 46 pounds in three months by simply cooking at home with my Instant Pot. I received thousands of comments and messages asking for recipes, help, and more information.
I started answering everyone individually but quickly realized there were too many questions to answer and not enough me.
That’s when I launched the Instant Loss Facebook community. Within the first few hours the group grew to over 2,000 members. Instantly I had a new full time job responding to messages, posting recipes, and sharing about healthy eating. I felt like I unintentionally stumbled into my calling.
Over the next couple days, the Facebook group began to grow. It started becoming difficult to manage my recipes posts on Facebook. That is when I received a call from my good friend, AlinaJoy. She encouraged me to start a blog. She wasn’t the first person to suggest it but she made me believe that I could do it!
I’m not very tech savvy and I knew next to nothing about running a website. I spent days working on the launch. I had several friends who were kind enough to answer my never ending stream of questions and on April 6, 2017, InstantLoss.com was up and running! We had over 50,000 views our first day on the web, which was intimidating and exciting all at the same time.
Things began to move fairly quickly after that.
Now we have different resources to help with weight loss, and an Instant Loss Cookbook hitting stores in the Fall. Instant Loss has helped hundreds of people lose weight and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do what I love every day!
Instant Loss would not exist if it weren’t for you! Today, on Instant Loss’ 1 year birthday, we’d like to give something back!
We are giving away: Instant Loss Aprons, Instant Loss T-shirts, and one lucky winner will receive a 6qt 7in1 Instant Pot! Entrants must be subscribed to the InstantLoss.com email list and must be following Instant Loss on Instagram. The giveaway will close on 4/8/2018 at 12AM ET. USA only.
