Personal Trainer Food – Week One

Personal Trainer Food - Week One

Personal Trainer Food – Week One

I have to admit. I do very well with structure. I do well with a plan and not when I have to plan in the moment when it comes to food. That’s why I have fallen in love with Personal Trainer Food in just one week. There’s been a lot of times in the past that I’ve thought I found something that would work and I will admit a lot of the times I vanished from the scene of the crime and a lot of the damage was done on my own doing. I couldn’t sustain shakes. I sustained #NSNG (No Sugar No Grains) but found myself in a predicament when my work schedule and routine changed over a year ago when I started The job at Stewart. This however is real food. Real food that I get to eat. Not processed. When this 50lb boxed of food showed up I felt overwhelmed and I thought what did I get myself into. Now I look at it like this is what 28 days of food is supposed to look like. Then I imagined 28 days divided by 7 days divided by 2-3 pizza’s a week and the rest of the days finding something to eat and not only sabotaging myself but also my wife and family. Personal Trainer Food gives me more flexibility than I could have ever hoped for. It has been my routine and it has been my fuel (literary)

Personal Trainer food makes really good food. I think that’s why I’m stoked about this journey. If I didn’t like the food, you all know I would be the first person to tell you. When it comes to my opinion and my review on something they’re my own. I do not sugar coat anything. Class example is that shake thing I was doing. I’m very honest and this company is class act in the only short one week period that make me feel wanted and appreciated and they genuinely want to see me succeed and I want nothing more to succeed with them.

As I mentioned in a earlier post. I’m sticking to my guns and will not show my weight loss till the month has passed and going forward I will be doing monthly weigh ins. I’ve also added a Starting pic from Xmas showing me at the 561lbs mark and will upload progress pics as I see fit.

My wife, work, friends, family are all supportive of this full effort to really preaching my motto. I mean I put it on a t-shirt didn’t I. Life will always give you hurdles and obstacles that you have to maneuver around. Over, under & so on. Instead of crying about it. Do something about it. Get mad. I’m mad, Because all those pains and issues should be the reason not the excuse for why you’re doing what you do.

I ask that all of you really follow me on this one. Check in with me. Ask me how I’m doing. My mind is good now. As I talk about things going forward on this journey, I’m going to get personal with myself.

A lot of people think that it can be so easy to lose the weight and I think a lot of those people are the ones that never had to face 561lbs in the mirror. I have monsters hidden that no one or only very few even know about. So forgive me if in my posts in the future I bring up some of my past. I’m only doing it to help me and make those around me understand what it’s truly like being me. I’ll let you step in my shoes but you’ll never fill them.

The Scale Doesn’t Lie Vlog Post 3/2/13

Well as you’ll see in this video, I gained since the last The Scale Doesn’t lie Vlog Post. I’m not proud of it but it’s all part of the process. I made some bad choices well knowing in advance what I was doing. They weren’t the wrong choices as there is no right or wrong in this it’s learning how to be consistent. I didn’t resort back to bad habits as far as binge eating or overeating it’s just my meals were not the best.

I’ve since corrected this and now I’ve been heading back in the gym to really kick into gear my total body transformation. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again. 2013 Is my year and “Nothing Works, Unless You Do”

the scale doesn't lie

Last Week: 448.0

Body By Vi Shake, What’s Really In It?

For those of you that found this page and currently asking for answers or currently using the product, do you know exactly what it is that you’re drinking in a Body By Vi Shake? You’d be amazed what you might find after doing a little homework.  I hope you found this page because you were concerned. Please watch the video below.

I’ve been talking  about posting my opinion on Body By Vi Shakes & what nutrition is really in a Body By Vi Shake for a long time but never have. This is my opinion and that’s exactly what it is an opinion. I’m not calling the company out. I’m not a scientist, I’m not a nutritionist. I just know how to read and I know how to say how I feel about it after being someone who has tried and gone through the experience.

90 Day Challenge Goal 399lbs

So I’ve kinda been under the radar as of late. no weigh in’s. No real positive updates. one of those holes where I tend to hide when things aren’t going as planned. For a long time I’ve been using the excuse that “life just gets in the way” for me. This is why I can’t lose weight.

The simple fact is “That’s BULLSHIT”

I went to FitBloggin few weeks back and something struck me….Instead of making life the excuse, I need to make life the reason.

I never once really looked at my weight loss journey like that. I know it seems awkward. It’s true. I have had all these other emotions and wants but never did I really put myself first on the list of priorities.

How can I take care of my family when I don’t take care of myself. This will mean that I have to sacrifice to accomplish the goals that I want out of life.

The title is my new goal. It’s been many many years since I’ve been able to tell someone that I’m 3 something. It’s one of those milestone goals that when reached will finally tell me that I’ve made that jump, I’ve hit that hurdle in this journey. It will prove to me consistency. Something that I’ve been lacking in this journey. It’s will prove tome that I have focus. Most importantly, it’ll prove to me that I’m finally choosing LIFE

I’ve started a 90 day challenge on the Body Bi Vi program and plan to lose 71+ pounds in 90 days to reach 399 as I’m 470 right now

Stay up, Stay positive and get moving….I’m letting you all inspire me so that I can pay it back and inspire others.

So The Cats Out The Bag…..Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge

I’ve contemplated this for a very long time to take this challenge. The main reason is my past success and my past failure with the Beaumont Shake Diet. I must admit though this pretty much sold itself to me.

I’ve had many people tell me to join along and I was hesitant because I didn’t want to become that guy that force feeds this to you to try to get you involved to try to make some money. I also didn’t want to hear the negative comments from people that may come from this, but I will flush you out. The Product simply works. My 90 Days will Prove That.

That scenario couldn’t be father from the truth. I have had the privilege to talk with some very successful people in the program. No not so much people that make the $$ but successful people like Eric Rose who has lost over 200 pounds on the program and lost 124lbs in the first 90 days. a Visalus record.  I would love to match or beat that.

With that being said. There were two important people that influenced me in making the decision to make this change. A long time family friend, Carlo Gobba & My buddy George Chaplin “Walk With Chappy” him and I have formed a very special bond and have also experienced the same heart breaking defeat of EMWLE. Our story’s are very much the same. Below is a video of him weighing in just after one week on the Body By Vi challenge. Please take a moment to watch and then head on over to his YouTube channel as he documents his full 90 day challenge with daily videos. He has lost 17 week one and three weeks in he has lost 31lbs. If anyone is interested in joining along as well or has any questions, please feel free to contact me.


My Challenge will officially start on Monday July 16th and I’ll keep my same weigh in day on Saturdays. I’m ready for big things. Stay Tuned. P.S. For all of you asking, Yes I’m still doing and going to the weight watchers meetings.
