Body By Vi Changed Me

Remember Christy from Coming to A Theater Near You, well she is guest posting while I am recovering from surgery. I am very honored to have her write for me as she is someone that I respect and admire. And also glad that I call her friend as well.

Have you ever look at a picture of yourself and thought, “No, that isn’t me?” I did, and I was not happy with what I saw. After 17 years of marriage, I had evidently just let myself go.  I was a size 16 and weighed 178 pounds! I was not happy with the way that I looked or with the way that clothes fit my body.  How could this have happened? More importantly, how could I change it?

A friend of mine on Facebook kept talking about a program that she was doing which was helping people get healthy. She asked me over to taste a sample of the product and I thought, “Why not?” Both my mom and I went, but before we left, we agreed where we would go out for dinner after the tasting. Neither one of us were expecting very much, but going to my friend’s house was a step in the right direction.

She introduced Body By Vi to the two of us. She described it as the shake mix that tastes like cake mix. She made us multiple samples. It was so easy to create the different flavors that I was very impressed. When she made me a shake that tasted like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, I told her I to sign me up!  I was going to give myself the gift of health for my 37th birthday. I saw Body by Vi as a way to achieve that healthy goal.  Oh, and after tasting five different flavors, my mom and I were so stuffed that we could not even begin to imagine going out for dinner!

I learned how to make shakes that taste like candy bars, cookies, smoothies, fruits, etc. It was so easy and so very tasty! I found myself dropping pounds and inches. I was so happy to be able to go out every month and buy myself a new wardrobe, a size smaller.  Even my husband was happy with having to buy me new clothes!

I began to no longer want to sit on the couch and watch TV all day. I started moving and joined a fitness group. I was feeling so great about myself and about how was feeling. I was excited with the changes that were taking place. Not only was I changing physically but also mentally. I decided to step out and try new things. I applied for acting positions, and was selected for TV and filming rolls. It had to do with the way that I looked that got me started. I was able to fit into the wardrobe sizes that they were asking. You cannot begin to imagine the excitement when the wardrobe man handed me a size 8 skinny jeans and I was able to fit into them. Had there been cameras in the changing room you would have gotten a good laugh. Ha!

I am happy to say that as of today, 2 years later, I am down to a size 6. I constantly thank my friend who introduced me to Body by Vi. In turn, I tell others about the shake mix that taste like cake mix and help them get started on their healthy lifestyle journey. All it takes is a change in your mind in order to have a change everywhere else.

  9. Christy you look amazing! I can absolutely relate to feeling miserable…I am 180 pounds right now and I find it so hard to lose the weight. I have started exercising quite a bit but the one thing I need to work on is my eating habits. I have to make a conscious effort to really work on this.

  10. You look great. I have heard of Body By Vi but have never seen someones results. Is it a shake for breakfast and lunch then a sensible meal for dinner?

  11. Thank you so much everyone for your kind words. Making the decision to take control of my health was the best decision ever. Actually, I was able to go from a size 16 to a 6 in exactly 8 months. I have been maintaining and tweaking the past year and a half. Ha! The way BBV works is so simple and so tasty! My team has an amazing support group, online, through phone calls and texts, and in person. It truly starts with the first 10 lbs. Plus, for every 10 lbs you lose you then get to sponsor an overweight child and they get the product for free!! We call it the Project 10 Challenge. This was a challenge I was proud to win!
    Anyway, you have a shake for breakfast, a sensible snack, shake for lunch, sensible snack, then a sensible dinner. You will be amazed at how filling a daily 1200 calories can be. I would be happy to help anyone reach their fitness goals. With a NINETY day results GUARANTEE, you have nothing to lose but weight.
