So, honestly, I have been battling with the re-emergence of my eating disorder since last November...ugh! You would think by the age of 33, I'd have it figured out! I've been popping on here for a day and then off for a month. I'm proud to say, I've been back on for 6 days now...longest in quite awhile!
Anyway...I have had several people throughout the last two years talk to me about the Body By Vi Shakes. And quite honestly, I have ignored them--I have even blocked some of my Facebook friends' status updates because of the ridiculous posts they had (and I'm still annoyed by some of that;).
Last week, a woman who I trust without a doubt when it comes to fitness goals/weight loss approached me about it. We have a mutual friend who has tried it, and the mutual friend is a lot like me when it comes to body image/yo-yo dieting, so I listened.
I went home that evening and actually researched the shakes...nutrition values, taste reviews, etc. I signed up under my friend that evening, and it is the BEST thing I have done for myself in a LOOOONG time. The shakes have taken food mostly out of the equation for my day. I have one for breakfast, a protein/fruit for AM snack, one for lunch, and a protein/veggie PM snack. I cook supper for my family, because I want my kiddos to see the importance of a family meal. In between times though, I'm NOT hungry!!! I had to FORCE myself to eat calories last night...no binges for the first time in months!!!! I have more energy than I have for years:) Oh, and the shakes actually taste awesome!!!!
Now, I will admit, I was completely skeptical and I'm not going to be one of those people who posts about Body By Vi all the time, but I have lost SEVEN POUNDS since last Wednesday:)...yes, I'm sure a majority is water weight, but my clothes do feel better already. I'm so glad I gave in to my skepticism!
Tonight I have my 4-mile route planned, and I can't wait:). I may even have someone signing up for the 90 Day Body By Vi Challenge under me...exciting!!!
