This is a terribly hard post to make...but here it is.
I wanted to begin posting pictures of my progress. I think it's a better testimony than just seeing a bunch of numbers. I don't currently have a picture from my highest weight, but I have one a least a bit close.
So here it is. The picture that truly began it all. These are a few photos from the Hunger Games party I went to.
Uggh. I HATE these photos. Everyone else looks so amazing, and I look five months pregnant.
I am around 217-220lbs here.
Now for a photo I am a little more proud of!
This is me, yesterday at 206lbs!
Hopefully you can see the difference here!!
I am honestly blown away at how much Visalus has been helping me break through my plateau. I have been gaining and losing the same 5lbs for about 6 months. Even when I was running every morning...I wasn't seeing these kind of results!
My energy level is through the roof! I have been sleeping through the night all week and that hasn't happened in years without medication!
I am also shocked at how little I have been snacking. I feel satisfied day after day and I don't spend my entire life thinking and dwelling on food! I am so sick and tired of my life revolving around such nonsense.
Not to sound cliche, but I feel like the Vi-shakes have given me a new freedom. I can now focus on all of the amazing things that God is doing in my life, instead of stressing about my weight and my issue with food. I have also been saving money because I don't really eat out anymore. We eat out about once a week now opposed to 4-5 times a week. I also don't have to worry about purchasing myself any kind of junk-food, I just get some fruit for my snack and call it a day.
If you are having the same issues as I, then please, let me send you some information. It's not a magic pill. It's a product that gives you amazing nutrition while teaching you how to change your thinking.
I am going to try and update with photos about once a week.
So look for next weeks progress report!
And now for the numbers:
Starting weight for challenge: 215
Goal weight: 147
