Back in October I purchased Chris Powell’s two books adding to my weight loss book library.  I love Chris Powell.  I love his show Extreme Makeover.  I am so amazed as to how he transforms the morbidly obese into healthy people.  He seems like such a nice person.  He seems genuine.  I went onto his web site.  It has a wealth of information about carb cycling.  Low carb for 2 days – 1 high carb day – 2 low carb days – 1 high carb day – and guilt free Sunday.  (Notice it is guilt free not a cheat day).

On January 1st, I weighed 157.7.  On Monday April 7th I weighed 156.9.  That is not a great weight loss for three full months.  Through the months I did get down to 153.1 for a nano second. But my weight has been fluctuating for three full months.  Down a pound, up a pound.  Down two pounds up one pound.  Etc. Etc. And I was getting very discouraged.  My husband even said “you might want to look into doing something else”.  I thought long and hard about how I wanted to continue my weight loss.  I could take a break and maintain my weight.  But I did not want to do that because I really want to lose more.  I could continue on the very slow but steady pace I am on but that was getting very frustrating for me.  I could rev up my exercise.  Which I did do.  I am back to running 3 miles a day.  And doing a boot camp on two days.

So last Monday I made a decision.  I am friends with Chris Powell on Facebook and love his web site.  I am also friends with Heidi Powell and have fallen in love with her posts on Instagram and Facebook.  So I searched the web which brought me to the Vemma Bode web site.  I did the research and felt this program made sense to me and it was sustainable.  I purchased the Turbo pack which includes Protein Powder, Bode Burn (a protein drink) and colon cleanse.

I have to say I have been loving this program.  I wake up each morning and absolutely love the protein shake.  It is by far the best on the market.  And I have tried many protein shakes.  I enjoy the Bode Burn every afternoon for a quick pick me up.  The jury is definitely out on the colon cleanse.  I will save that for my next blog.  I also am eating my regular foods that I love.  Lean meats, vegetables, greek yogurt, fruit and healthy fats.

I have decided to commit to this program for four weeks.  I can do anything for four weeks.  So far for my first week on Chris Powell’s Vemma Bode program I have lost two pounds.  I am at my lowest weight at 152.9 (besides the 153.1 nano second a month ago).  I feel great and have a ton of energy.  I am enjoying eating real healthy foods.  So for the next four weeks Vemma Bode, Chris and Heidi Powell will be my weight loss partners.
