First...why?? Um because after Elin I am not the fit momma I want to be. After I had Aidan, I was a rockstar. I weighed less AFTER having Aidan than before I was preggo. After Elin? Yeah not so much. I was pumped at first because I gained less weight with her, but also? I started 15 pounds heavier. Dang it. We bought a treadmill. I am DEDICATED to getting fit. I am almost a CERTAIN age and I am bound and determined to be my fittest and healthiest THIS YEAR. So this is how I am doing it. I need a challenge. A goal. Something to push me along. Enter The 90 Day Challenge. I am also going to blog about my progress as a way to keep me accountable. Oh lawdy. Get ready haha!!! So anyhoo...
This is awesome. I first heard of this from Shelli over at A La Mode Maven and now I am officially addicted. Seriously, these shakes taste like CAKE BATTER?!?! Wait, back up. What are we talking about?? Ah yes. The 90 Day Challenge. It's a nutritional challenge that will help in your (OUR) weight loss journey. I have tried just about everything under the sun for weight loss... EVEN THAT ALLI stuff that has very uh TERRIBLE side effect wink wink. I don't want to diet. I tell Chad all the time that I was a LIFESTYLE change. But I also am super picky at what I eat. Enter Body by Vi. You guys. This stuff is awesome. I substitute one shake a day. There are 100s of combos that are so tasty. Have you been to Hawaii?? If you have, you know what a Lava Flow is...the best drink ever made. Guess what? You can make a Lava Flow shake...minus the alcohol of course :) So I am taking this challenge and invite you to try it out too! Email me (email@example.com) if you are interested or have questions. I will also update with all sorts of new recipes. You will get addicted. Just try it! Here is Michelle's story about why she loves this stuff as well!
My name is Michelle Bell, and I have been with Visalus Sciences, promoting the 90 Day Challenge for the past 4 months, and what an amazing and unexpected 4 months it has been.
Prior to this, I was in sales management in the pharmaceutical industry for 11 years. Because I was in sales, I was constantly approached by multi-level companies wanting me to help promote their services and or products. Honestly, I never entertained even listening to the opportunity, and quite frankly ran the other direction. This was mainly due ot the fact that I had known people, and had heard stories of how people had been burned or made bad investments in these type of companies.After leaving the pharmaceutical industry 2 years ago, I went on to pursue my passion of health and fitness. Even though I took a HUGE pay cut, it allowed me to stay home with my family and my boys, who are young and very active. Over the past two years, I have been a group fitness instructor and a personal fitness trainer. I teach and train at two different gyms, and thoroughly love being able to help and encourage others through their health and fitness.
Last October, one of the clients in our gym came in talking about these shakes that helped her lose 10 pounds in 2 weeks, and said that tasted like "cake mix." The other trainers and I became curious. We looked into the shakes ourselves, and decided to try them. That was the first time I had EVER had a shake as a meal replacement, but wanted to see what I thought, knowing it could potentially help so many people.My husband and I tried the shake for 1 meal a day for 3 days. We both loved them, and so did our boys. They tasted great, we noticed an increase in our energy, and after 3 days, I lost 3.5 pounds and my husband lost 4. I was sold, and was ready to go to GNC...or whereever to buy the shakes for my family.
At that point, the other trainers and I learned that you had to buy from a distributor or become one. OH NO!!! I don't do things like this! And I am SKEPTICAL about these kinds of companies. I was torn. I loved the product first, and foremost, but wasn't looking into getting into something like this. I just wanted to have something to offer people who were looking to lose weight and improve their health and nutrition. After a few days of thinking and praying about it, I decided to go ahead and become a distributor. Honestly, I just hoped to eventually earn my small $1000 investment back, while helping people with their health.
My first two months, I had many customers and a couple of promoters under me, but I was still skeptical. I LOVED the product, but I needed that same passion for the company. I needed Visalus to prove itself to me, and see for myself that it truly was different from other companies out there. I didn't want to involve my friends and family in something that ended up being a bad decision.
After 2 months in the company, learning more about it, and watching how other people from my gym had grown their business, earned the company BMW, and were making thousands per month...I finally had the confidence behind the company that I needed.
Beginning January 1st, I really started to promote this company and this product. I am passionate about the way that this product and company are changing people's lives in so many ways, and I wanted to let people know about it. After 3.5 weeks, I was promoted to Regional Director which earned me the company BMW. And, in January alone, I earned enough commission to pay for our family spring break ski trip.
In February, my team continued to grow, along with my paychecks. I was promoted to National Director in the company. Three other people on my team went on to earn the BMW, as they watched their paychecks grow as well.
Now as we are into March, everyday is exciting to see the team that is growing under me. I am on track to be promoted to Presidential Director this month.
I have heard countless stories from our customers of how the 90 Day Challenge with Body by Vi is helping people lose weight, shape up, feel more energy and is improving their overall nutrition. In addition, it is such an added blessing to see the way that the company is adding to the financial health of families all over. I was the poster child of SKEPTICISM, and I am believer now! In a matter of just a few months, I am now able to contribute so much more to our family's finances, which was never my intention when I joined Visalus.
Body by Vi is the #1 Weight Loss and Nutrition Challenge on the market. It is also the #1 home-based business, which will be the first multi-level company to reach $1billion in sales. It is because the product tastes great, it is affordable and it easy.
In the fast paced, busy lifestyle that we have, it is so nice to have an opportunity to have a business where I don't have to buy inventory, I don't take orders, I don't make deliveries, I don't take money...all I do is tell people about the Challenge and make shakes for people. My website does the rest. EASY!
We have been blessed to see the improvement in our family's health, our family's wealth, an d in the ways that we have been able to help so many other people.
Best Wishes to your health and Happy Shake Makin'! --Michelle Bell
