I am so excited to tell you about this new product and offer such an awesome giveaway from Jeannie Aylsworth, Independent Distributor for ViSalus Sciences. Jeannie is a dear friend of mine who I have often talked with about my desire to lose weight and get healthy again. I have tried several “fad” diets, spent $500+ on a Wii Fit (though I haven’t used it as much as I had wanted to), even tried the Jillian Michaels 14 Day Cleanse (two words – night mare) but I seemed to be “stuck” at this one particular weight. I had voiced my struggle to my friend Jeannie and was just tickled when she called me and said “We MUST go to dinner this week, I have something I want you to try.”
Jeannie is someone I trust implicitly, especially when it comes to health and wellness. However when she handed me a package of this new “meal replacement shake” I was a bit skeptical. In fact, I set it on my desk when I got home, and didn’t think about it again. But when she called me (daily) to ask if I had tried it, I knew I had better get to it. She offered to do a Review/Giveaway, and I knew there was no backing out then. I committed to the Review, and I can not say how pleased I am with the results. So much so I ordered more before even finishing the Review.
Now, as I said, I have tried “everything” weightloss. Shakes, pills, meal bars, “cookies” (they misspelled cardboard), and whatnot, but I am saying with complete honesty, these shakes are DELICIOUS. They even have additional little “flavor” packets, but I like the shakes just straight. I mixed one packet with 8 ounces of Vanilla Silk Milk (something else I had refused to try before this) and was immediately hooked. For the first time EVER – I was full. And not just for 20 minutes. I was full until lunch.
Before I get too carried away, let me tell you a little about ViSalus. The term ViSalus comes from the Latin “Vi,” meaning Life, and “Salus,” which means Health and Prosperity. This new company has already been topping charts and turning heads around the country. Their Management Team is unique to our industry – including three, young, high energy entrepreneurs who know the health and wellness industry well. Though they have only been around for 3 years, they have the backing of the Direct Sales monster Blyth, Inc, a company who has been around more than 30 years. With their amazing products, management, and compensation, I have no doubt that ViSalus will be making headlines in the Direct Sales World for a very long time.
Another amazing aspect that is setting ViSalus ahead of all of the other “weight loss” style party plan companies is their “Body by Vi” challenge – bringing together a community of “losers” to support and encourage one another on the journey to getting fit. As I have said in all of my Leadership Training - “a supported consultant is a successful consultant” - it really boils down to a supported PERSON is a successful person – the owners of ViSalus know this, understand this, and are diligently working on building a remarkable support group around the World. With their Referral Program, offering anyone the chance to earn free product, and their Feed Hungry Kids Campaign, ViSalus is truly setting themselves ahead of the “pack” for all health and wellness companies out there.
I personally became a believer during this review – losing NINE pounds over the course of a little less than 2 weeks. First, to kick me off my weight “plateau” but secondly to be the first product ever that actually kept me feeling FULL is just remarkable. And I will go ahead and admit, I was supposed to also be taking the supplements, but I am terrible about remembering to take pills, so I literally lost all of that weight just simply by using the Meal Replacement Shakes.
You may have read my “30 by 30″ post and my own personal challenge to lose weight this summer, and I am confident and beyond excited that I will be able to easily achieve this goal with the help of ViSalus.
