A new start with VI-Shakes

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I have tried lots of things to get motivated to get back on track. About a month ago my daughter started a new program were you drank 2 shakes a day and had a regular meal for the 3rd. I don't know if anyone who reads this is familiar with the Vi-Shake or not, but if you do would like to hear from you. She was having good luck with them and she wasn't experiencing any hungry and had more engery.
After some talking about it with her and my husband, I decided that I would try them and see if I could jump start my weigh loss again. After one week I lost 3# and had not suffered any of the shakiness or hungry I have experienced when I would try anything. I do have more energy.
I am not posting this to "toot" the horn for VI-shakes. I am posting this because I am not going to depend on the shakes for a permanent solution but will be striving to get back on SP and follow the healthy lifestyle change that will get me to a permanent goal.
I am so tired of starting and stopping. I am hoping and asking the LORD to guide me in this new program and to help me reach the weight he would have me to be and the energy I need to serve him more. I know that as long as I kept my eyes on his goal and him that I did well, but I have to admit that I tried to do it all in my own power and failed.

    I say do what works for YOU. Do the shakes "for now" as you say, and if they are working without the hunger and shakiness, there must be more to it than just low calories.

Work on one step at a time, reading lots of info here again and getting back into exercise. THEN work on replacing the shakes (or one at a time if it's too overwhelming) with real food. And of course make sure your one meal a day is as healthy and colorful and full of flavor as possible.

We all require different motivation and timing on this journey!! My nutrition isn't perfect either, but I'm working on it, one day at a time. emoticon

  I personally feel that we must learn to eat three healthy meals a day with fruit or yogurt to curb the hunger between meals. Quick fixes are not the answer. Learning to eat wisely and exercise in some form is the answer. We are not on a diet we are on a learning healthier ways to eat. There is so much help here at Sparks. I pray you find what works for you here.

    One of the reasons people lose weight with VI Shakes is because the shakes, prepared with milk, are only 170 calories. If you replaced two of your meals with 170 calories of anything you'd lose weight... even 170 calories of Twinkies!
