The Real RVL Reveal
Welcome to my new weight-loss blog! I have started a new product called RVL (pronounced: Reveal). It has more nutritional value per calorie than ANY other weight-loss product on the market. I am starting this blog, to keep tabs on myself, and to keep anyone interested informed. Keep checking back regularly (FOLLOW ME) for updates. If you are just joining in... scroll down to the bottom to start at the beginning of my journey.

happy New Year! Back to Basics!
Hello and happy new year! I just finished my first chocolate RVL shake of the new year! Actually, my first one in a long while. I don't have my official weight recorded, but according to my home scale, I am about 6-7 lbs over goal. Not bad for closing the holidays. I also have a confession to make... A few months back, I switched to Body By Vi, a competing company in the new nutritional weightloss department. That's actually when I started gaining again. The shakes left me hungry. They were thin and didn't have as much oomph to them. My thinking was strictly cost-wise. It was cheaper. Hmmmm? If it ain't broke, don't fix it! I was panicking a little, as I went out of 'leeway' (three pounds over goal) I had two weeks to get back in so, I went on a stupid crash diet. Yes, I lost the weight... But immediately afterwards, I started to gain again. I was feeling ill, my skin went pasty and blotchy. As my weight started to climb again over the holiday season, I was about to go on it AGAIN, to get back down. Um...AGAIN? Why would any one put their body through that AGAIN? I decided against it, went back on my MONA-VIE website, and ordered more shakes. So, I am going back to basics. eating healthy, and starting my exercise regime again! I bought a yoga mat for Christmas, and the treadmill is coming upstairs. I am looking forward to getting my energy back. That's another thing the body-by-vi didn't provide. I had to use a spoon to scrape the last bits of shake off the cup. I'd forgotten about that. Thick and rich. And yummy! I am totally looking forward to that again, too!
