Passion Pushing Yourself When No Else Is Around

Happy September!!!  I know it's not "officially" fall but September is the month where we celebrate Labor Day Weekend (The Last of Summer) Then of course football season begins.  With that normally comes cooler weather, tailgating, grilling out, game parties, and ALLLLL the snacks in the world that are 100% avoidable when your trying to lose weight! LOL!  
In all actuality we are not a huge football season household.  Every once in a while we get some friends over or we go visit friends and watch a game or two. Mostly to hang out and enjoy the company of friends or family.  My favorite part of the whole thing is the change of the season.  We start to break out jeans and jackets on cooler days.  The air on cooler days starts to feel a tad crisper and less humid.  It's an over vibe that just can't be missed this time of the year!  With the change in the air I'm looking forward to some nice runs outside.  I managed to get some good ones in despite the heat of the summer but there is just a complete different feel to the weather in the fall!  Lastly my kids started Fall Soccer.  They had their first practice last Thursday.  Only my two older girls are playing this year.  We are looking forward to one more practice this coming Thursday before the first Fall game this coming Saturday!  I'm ready to pack up a snack bag for the kids, the sun screen, folding chairs, and shaded tent to set up while we cheer on our two soccer stars!!!

My last post I documented the end of my last Visalus 90 Day Challenge.  I then documented the start of my new 3rd 90 Day Visalus Body by Vi Challenge.  I am please to announce this last week I've made a full recovery in the gym and have finally built back my full strength of endurance I had before Kidney Stones/Surgery.  I still have moments throughout the day I get a sharp yet dull pain in my upper kidney.  Or if I over do it physically I can feel the pressure there.  It's just so strange to me how our bodies work!  But I recognize it and mentally note it for my follow up visit on the 11th and move on.

Saturday I got an UH-MAZING run in at the gym!  I ran for 30 minutes without having to stop at a 5.5 on the treadmill.  It was sooo invigorating to just LET GO and RUN! With that being said I have my first week ending stats to report as follows:

1st Week Ending Totals as of 9/1/13
Weekly Weight Loss: -2.6 Pounds
Total Weight Loss to Date: -63.6 pounds
Week Ending Weight: 173.4

Your Body Shape (Waist To Height Ratio)


Your Body Mass Index (BMI) is: 24.8

A BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy for adults. A BMI of 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight, while a BMI of 30 and above is considered obese. People with BMIs of 18.5 or less are considered underweight.

I am FINALLY NOT considered over weight!  My BMI is finally a 24.8 and I am finally considered HEALTHY!!!!! 

It's been long before I got married that I was even in this BMI weight category!  I am extremely proud of my weight-loss results from this weight loss journey.  I have come such a long way... from Moderately Obese to HEALTHY!  I know all the final areas I have left to go but I am perfectly content with where I am now and continuing to work toward my final body goals as slow and steady as necessary!  I could not have done any of this without the motivation of my Aunt and Uncle who told me about Body by Vi and encouraged me to start Body by Vi.  Without my choice to live the Vi Life Style and become active daily I would not be where I am now and on the final road to meeting my final goals.  If you are interested in learning more about Visalus Body by Vi and how you can become healthy and fit check out my website.  watch the video and let me know what you think!
