Body By Vi

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

I've been doing fairly well eating clean.

However, my sister started a business with Body by Vi. For her, I agreed to do the 90 day Challenge.

I've done these kinds of things before. I'm fairly sure my body knows what's up. These kinds of programs really just throw you into starvation mode.

Two shakes for day for two meals... supplements... and a "normal" dinner.

See... starvation.

I actually haven't been feeling hungry until yesterday - a full week into the program.

I also haven't really lost much. Just the usual ups and downs.

She is supportive and texts me every other day to see how I'm doing. I am sad that I can't report the things are going well.

Oh well. I promised 90 days. I've now done 7 days... 83 more to go.

Meanwhile, I'd really like this to help me loose at least a little.

I have to have surgery for a hernia in 3 weeks. It looks like my abdominal wall is more like Swiss cheese than a 6 pack waiting to happen. "A significant portion" of my transverse colon is sticking out through the hole... and a part of my descending colon too.

I really don't like doctors.

The answer is always "... because your fat."

Thanks for stating the obvious.

At least all my blood tests came out good... good blood sugars... good cholesterol... good mineral levels... good oxygen levels... only the blood pressure was high and they finally decided it was "white coat syndrome." (I don't like doctors. :))

Anyway, loosing a few pounds would sure make recovery go better.

I finally found my "get up and go" today and did 60 minutes of exercise. It's not my favorite, but I did it.

    Good luck on your surgery. What is the date so I can keep you in my thoughts and prayers, and maybe even add your name on the prayer roll in our beautiful Seattle temple?

    I have never heard of that program. I hope it works well for you. I wish it seemed easier too. Good luck to you.
