How to lose weight becomes the next chapter for me...
Now how’s this for the power of the mind. In 2005 Cheryl and I were planning to get
married in Hawaii, and we quickly discovered that we were having issues with
getting pregnant. So when I learned that
the hotel we were staying in had been built on the site of an old healing
temple, I asked the Hawaiian elder for some help. He told me about a fertility pond where the
royalty would bathe on their wedding night, so we got permission to dip our
toes in the waters. Our son Luke was the
result. Coincidence? Could be…
Life was good. I had
a successful business, we had our wee bundle of joy, I’m working from home and
I’m exercising regularly and we’re enjoying a healthy diet…
Then something weird happened. Everyone said “Aye you’re skinny now but wait till you hit your 40’s, then you’ll
start putting the beef on.” They
were right – my wee boy started patting my stomach and calling me “Five
Belly’s”. Where had this disgusting band
of jelly round my middle come from? At
night in bed I could actually feel it hanging to one side! Eeuuww!
So I tried to cover it up and suck it in.
I tried Zumba DVD’s, took Herbalife shakes which tasted
bland even though they’re full of sugar, cut off all the fat from meat, but
nothing seemed to stop fat growing on me.
Before I did the programme, I could easily munch through a packet of
chocolate digestives. I’d say to my wife
if you don’t buy them, then I can’t eat them.
Funny how things turn out...
In 2013 a friend invited me to look at a new business that
was coming from the States to the UK for the first time – a 90 day weight loss
and fitness challenge with an 8 year proven track record. At first I was sceptical and very cautious,
but after meeting two great members of the company, and keen to drive a free
BMW that the company would pay for, I decided to get involved. Body By Vi launched Feb 7th 2014
so it’s brand new. For the people who
say they’ve tried everything – you ain’t tried this! Originally designed to help athletes build
lean muscle and take off fat, the company aimed it at the weight loss market
and it became the #1 consumed shake in North America.
Vi have a great model – lose 10 lbs of fat, or gain 10lbs of
muscle using their meal replacement shakes and cookies, and they’ll give you a
free t shirt that money can’t buy, you go into a prize draw to win £600, and
they donate 30 meals to children in need in your name. And unlike the other supplements I’d tried,
this stuff tastes like a McFlurry! I
recommend a shake that tastes like cake to people who like cake. And the more you drink, the more you shrink!
37 days later I qualified for the BMW. 53 days later I’d gained 10 lbs of muscle,
and lost 7 lbs of fat. My energy was way
up and my belly had gone. And an
underprivileged child received 30 meals as a result. My first ever experience of weight loss for
me personally, and now I have abs! And
because it’s a meal replacement I saved about £15 a week on the grocery
bill. I’m still eating chocolate biscuits, but I’m 47
and in the best shape I’ve ever been in,
and I actually like what I see in the mirror. Can you say the same? Do you look good naked?
You see, I love seeing the impact and surprise when an old
problem has disappeared in only 90 days.
Only this morning I saw a news item about a deaf woman who had an
implant fitted and you saw her reaction to hearing for the first time. She was trembling with joy and elation. I love helping people to feel like that.
Did This Help You? If so, I would greatly appreciate if you commented below and shared on Facebook
