Body by Vi

Okay so if you're friends with me on Facebook you probably know that 2 weeks ago I started the 90 Day Challenge from Body by Vi.
When I first looked into it, I was a little skeptical.  To me it seemed like another program that promises a quick fix but doesn't deliver.  But I decided to go to my friend's shake tasting party anyway.  I do admit that hearing about my cousin-in-law's success with it did encourage me a little- at least I knew someone in real life that it's working for.
At the party I was convinced to give it a try.  After all, I can do anything for 90 days right?  I placed my order and got my first shipment 2 weeks ago.  I was actually pretty excited when it came.  I weighed and measured myself and took my "before" picture (yikes).
The program itself is easy: replace 2 meals a day with a shake, eat a sensible 3rd meal, and healthy snacks in between.  For women you're supposed to aim for 1200-1400 cals a day.  This sounds exactly Slimfast doesn't it?  Well it's very similar but the Body by Vi shakes are nutritionally better for you and there are SO many different kinds you can make.  I literally have over 100 recipes and often I just make up my own.  Last night for dinner I had a "Cinnamon Bun" shake.  It tasted just like a cinnamon bun!  
I'm happy to report that in 2 weeks I have lost 4.5 pounds which doesn't sound like a ton right?  Especially when my other cousin-in-law (who started the same time I did) has already lost 9 pounds.  But I have to remind myself that experts say normal weight loss is about 1-2 pounds a week.  And I did "cheat" on one or 2 days with my 3rd meal.  So I guess I could have potentially lost more but at the same time having a little "cheat" meal helps satisfy my cravings.
But I also have lost a total of 3.5 inches from all over.  That is exciting as well.  Interestingly almost half of that has come from my chest which just goes to show where women lose weight first (rather unfortunate if you ask me...haha!).
So maybe by now you're thinking "hmm I'd like to try much does it cost?"  I know, I know there's always a catch right?  Well I'm not going to lie- it's $99 a month.  Sounds like a lot right but I think of it as $25 a week and considering I'm not buying food for breakfast and lunches I really don't feel that we're spending that much more money for me to be doing this program.  But here's the best part (do I sound like an infomercial yet?):  you can get it for free.  Yep, FREE.  You will have to pay for your 1st month but if you can get 3 people to sign up "underneath" you then your next shipment is free.  And it will keep being free as long as there are 3 people ordering every month from underneath you (can be the same 3 or different 3).
And now we've reached the real reason I've blogged about this- sign up under me!  LOL!  No, that's not the real reason.  I seriously am very excited about this program and I already have one person at school trying it with me (along with my cousins-in-law) and I think the more people doing something together, the more support you have and then you will be more successful.
So here is the website where you can get more info and sign up if you want.  And if you're interested in those recipes I have, let me know and I can email them to you (well you have to give me your email address if I don't already have it).  C'mon people- you can do ANYTHING for 90 days!  What do you have to lose?  (except weight?)
