It's been a few months since my last post. I wish I could say that I've kept up with My Positive Life Change and that I've been working out faithfully and melting away the pounds...but no. The wonderful news is, a couple of weeks ago I determined in myself that this would be the last year that I was overweight, and that I would enter the 33rd year of my life (my b-day is in September) healthier that I entered my 32nd. I started to tie up all my loose ends - disorganization, old assignments, anything that I could potentially use as an excuse to working out 6 days a week. Last week I made two steps to the new and improved me - I ordered a Body by Vi Kit and I set up an appointment at my gym to have someone walk me thru the machines again and to have myself weighed and measured. I am super excited to announce that just 3 days into my new plan that I've already lost 1 pound!
I've held off on announcing my weight loss challenge on my facebook for one reason - I want to wait a week to see how much I lose. I didn't want to promote Body by Vi to anyone without knowing for myself if it actually works. In the past It has been incredibly hard for me to lose weight, even with working out. I normally put on muscle first, then it takes at least 6 weeks before I see or feel any other change than in my strength. Usually the whole process is discouraging for me unless I'm very strict with my eating habits. Very, very strict. So, I'm excited that just 3 days into my Challenge, and some light working out, that I've dropped 1 pound. This is with the Balance Kit, 1 shake a day. Visalus (body by Vi company) has a kit with which you drink two shake a day and experience a faster weight loss, but I don't believe in replacing multiple meals with shakes. I'll do one in the morning because I have such a hard time getting myself to eat a healthy breakfast, and so far, it's been easy. I figured that since I'm going to be exercising that one shake a day would do it for me. The other thing I like about Visalus is that when you order your kit, you have access to a free online community full of health and exercise tips, and encouraging testimonies of other people that are going through their challenges. I was especially excited to read one testimony yesterday of a women who lost 28 pounds in her 90 day challenge. My Goal is to lose 30. I'm not an official promoter (meaning that I am not getting paid for selling the product), but an incentive to spreading the word is that if 3 people sign up thru my page, I will get my next two kits free. I'd be happy to lose the weight regardless, but a free kit for the next 2 months would be neat!

I made it to the gym 3 days this week and so far this has been the easiest pound I've ever lost. Have I mentioned that I'm excited?! I'll be posting my progress regularly, so I'll be on here a whole lot more. Thank you for reading, God bless you on your health journey! - Jen
