I Just Found Out About The Most AMAZING Results!!!


Yesterday I went to the doctor for the results of the blood-work I had done in September. It was done 3 months after I started Body by Vi. I was nervous about it because I have put so much faith into Body by Vi. I know that it has changed my life in so many ways already. I have never slept this well or had this much energy. I have had less pain in the last few months than I have in over six years. I was also nervous because I was on Actos for my diabetes since I was diagnosed and this was the first blood-work done since I went off of it. I was worried that it would be bad and I would have to change meds again. So when I met with the doctor yesterday I was nervous, but excited.

First, the nurse took my blood glucose and blood pressure readings in the office and both were fantastic. Two hours after eating and my glucose was 119, my blood pressure was 110 over 60 and I weighed in at 435. All those are good numbers and I was feeling pretty good at that point.

Then the doctor came in and checked my feet, which tickled a lot, but was good. My feet are holding up just fine. That, in itself, is a big relief! She said she is absolutely thrilled with my progress and I should keep it up. She said I may want to lower my calorie intake a little if I stop losing weight, but I already knew that of course. Then she looked at my blood-work results and got a huge grin on her face. All of my blood-work was really good. My cholesterol was down and my LDL, which is the bad cholesterol, went from 220 to 110!!! That is cut in half in three months time!!! She was shocked that the only thing that I changed was Body by Vi. For more info on LDL cholesterol go here.

And now for the most incredible news…my A1C was 5.5!!!! For those of you that don’t know what that means it is FANTASTIC!!! If you want more info on what A1C means go here.  The lowest my A1C has been since my diabetes diagnosis was 7.1 and that was the last blood-work before this one. So even with diet and exercise my A1C was still high. Body by Vi helped me get it to where it needs to be!

So for all of you non-believers, take it from me, I am living proof that Body by Vi is amazing and life changing. I have the tests to back up my claims. Not only has it helped me lose weight and feel good, it is helping me get healthy in just about every way. I am so SO grateful for Body by Vi!!!

If you’re interested I will also be doing a vlog (video blog) about this and a few other things. It will, no doubet, be emotional. Here is my channel if you want to watch and/or subscribe to me.

I Dare You


Today is Tuesday and that means that it is Takeover Tuesday for the Showdown Challenge. I wanted to do my video this week about making my favorite shake, but I ran out of time and I already had my two shakes for the day by the time I got around  to making my video last night. So, instead of that idea, I decided to make a short video and go in a different direction. It’s a dare, and not only a dare, but a double dog dare! Are you up for a little truth and dare? Check out my video here and if you would be so kind, rate it a 10.

Thanks to Body by Vi, I have lost 27 pounds in 7 weeks. It has been such a blessing in my life. It’s even better that I get my shakes for free, but the absolute best part, is that I get paid to help other people get healthy. If you’re ready to start the challenge or become a promoter, my Vi page is here:

5 Minute Pity Party


So yeah, the last week has not been the greatest. I have been emotional and I have been emotionally eating. I was feeling sorry for myself and you know what, that’s okay. We all have those moments. Well, now I’ve had my (way more than) 5 minute pity party and it’s time to suck it up, buttercup, and move on.

This week, thanks to Body by Vi I still managed to lose some weight, even though I did not exercise enough and I ate horribly. In 6 weeks on the challenge, I have lost 23 pounds and almost 15 inches!!! Physically, I feel better than ever. I am doing more and feeling better every day. I love the difference that Body by Vi has made in my life, and honestly, my only regret is not starting six months or a year ago.

So that’s kinda what my video blog is about this week. It’s a little emotional, but not too much (I think). Please watch and rate my video here: Falling Off the Wagon

As always, thank you for all the love, encouragement and support!

I forgot to post my updates yesterday so here they are: my current weight is 449. I have been on the 90 day challenge for 36 days and I have lost 21 pounds and 12 inches. This product is amazing and life changing and I LOVE Body by Vi!!!
