I started Body by Vi this week. I needed to do something to help myself get healthy, and a friend had started and was really enjoying it so I thought, "why not?" It really appealed to me. I struggle with eating vegetables and I know that on a regular basis I'm not getting all the vitamins and nutrients my body needs. The nice thing about these shakes (and that's basically what the program is, replacing two meals a day with these shakes) is that they have almost all the vitamins and nutrients in them. And I feel good after drinking them. I'm only on day 4 but so far I'm enjoying it. I'll admit, drinking my lunch isn't nearly as satisfying as eating it, but I do find that I'm staying full and energized.
In my experience the first week is always the easiest. I'm all full of motivation and eager to feel/see results. The real test will be if I can keep the momentum up next week. Plus I need to start getting in more physical activity. I've been making better suppers and making good snack choices as well. I want to make changes I can live with. I know that a "diet" isn't the answer. I need a life style change. And I'm hoping I'm on my way!
