The lady who sold me Herbalife will not leave me alone

Hi all,
I wanted to lose some weight and contacted Herbalife.
A lady got in contact with me and I bought a months supply of shakes from her(quite priceyShock)
Anyway what I didn't realise was that this lady texts/emails and calls me constantly.(I've missed most of her calls and she leaves me nice but at the same time quite pushy messages to call her back as she wants to get my body measurements,weight and give me 'encouragement' etc.)
I've been strict with the diet for a week and then the weekend it all went out of the window.
She wants me to take pictures of my body,measure every part of my body and weigh myself every single week and send to her.
I personally want to do it alone and maybe weigh myself monthly and I don't really want to send pics of myself in underwear to a stranger either!
WIBU to kindly tell her to leave me alone?
Has anyone been on the Herbalife shake diet and is this normal with the sales reps?

I know someone that sells it as well. Passionate is not the first that springs to mind tbh. brainwashed is
I thankfully don't have them on Facebook but I have their dp and that is bad enough x

Jharris, do they sell punctuation shakes? Because you are deficient in punctuation.

These diets never work long-term.

How is it not man made?

For a shake, blitz an organic banana with some freshly-squeezed orange juice, a spoonful or organic Manuka honey, a cup of natural yoghurt and a handful of oats. There, no processed crap.

As mentioned earlier, it seems to be target driven selling. Unfortunately, we bumped into 3 Herbalife reps on the airport carpark bus going to some company bash in London in May. They spent the whole time trying to get everyone's contact details so they could get in touch later to tell then more about the product. Think young female Dell Boy types .... The "leader" kept saying ..."opportunity ladies, use every opportunity".
Best bit of "anti-advertising" I have seen in a long time, it certainly promoted thoughts and comments on wholesome balanced sustainable diets instead of expensive manufactured substitute for real food.
