Let me say that it was a fairly easy week and I didn't feel deprived at all. I have tried all the diets over the years and this one satifies my hunger and cravings!! WOW!!

Weigh in this morning showed a 5 pound weight loss for Peter (my husband or as one comedian puts it - left brain) and a 4 pound weight loss for me - YAY!!

Now you might ask - what do you get to eat? Look what I ate for one of my days this past week.

Breakfast - the most important meal of the day - 2 scoops VI Shake powder mixed with one cup of skim milk, 1/4 cup blueberries and 1 frozen banana. One cup of coffee with skim milk.

Snack - 60 calorie slice of cheese and a small apple

Lunch - 2 scoops VI shake powder mixed withcup 1/2  frozen fruit (blackberries, dark cherries and blueberries) one cup of skim milk.

Snack - raw veggies like carrots, broccoli, mushrooms etc with 1 Tblsp of low fat dressing OR fat free yogurt

In The Beginning!

Hello everyone or anyone - I have never done this before so I'm not even sure how this works so please be patient with me.

Recently I decided that it was time to change a lot of things about me so this is the beginning of Debbie Part Two. For the first 50 years I have had a loving husband, raised a great family, gained and lost weight and basically taken care of everyones needs - it's my time now! Even though I am looking after my 91 year old father and my 82 year old mother in law - both of which have many health problems - it's time for me to make the changes necessary for me to survive the next however many years God may give me.

My first steps last year were feable but I did manage to start exercising and lose some weight - then busy-ness and family and my own lack of motivation caused me to slow down and eventually stop. Shortly after that I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. 

A week ago I decided to try something new - I have joined the BMW Team with Visalus Sciences and started on the 90 - Day Challenge! So far so good! My husband Peter and I are both participating. Our first weigh in is tomorrow morning. I'm excited but apprehensive. Weight loss is always a struggle for me.  The second part of this challenge is that I have decided to be a promoter of this product. I've got to say that it tastes SO good!! Now I am building a team to work with me.

Anyone interested in joining me??? Check out my website for details and stay tuned to this blog for updates.
