They say every journey begins with the first step, and that is true. However, no journey is just about the first step. The journey is about every step until the last step of the journey has been taken.
Being successful in the BIG Challenge requires taking steps on the journey every day. The Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge is not just about drinking a healthy shake every day. It is about an entire program that is followed step by step.
Frankly, it does little good to replace one or two meals a day with a healthy and nutritious shake if the one meal you eat is an overindulgence in food you shouldn't eat. Replacing meals with a shake is nullified by eating unhealthy snacks between meals.
The Importance Of The Daily Challenge
I have broken down the 90 day challenge to three 30 day challenges, 13 weekly challenges and the daily challenge. Below is the recommended daily challenge. It is the one I follow: We must start every day with a brand new challenge to work toward a healthy body, soul and spirit.The core of the 90 day challenge is the daily challenge. Taking the right steps every day is what makes a successful journey to a healthy body, soul and spirit.
.The One Day Challenge: Every morning review my plan for the day.
ü What will I eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner? What snacks will I allow between meals and in the evening?
ü What is my exercise plan for the day?
ü Read the Daily God Walk and complete the devotion by meditating on the principle, affirming the principle and reflecting on what I just read. Then I will write out my thoughts on the devotion and the day ahead.
ü I will pray for grace (God's favor) to be upon my life, my family and my immediate world. I will pray that God will make me conscious of those around me and to be responsive to their needs as much as is appropriate.
ü I will personalize 1 I am affirmation of a Scripture which speaks of the what God thinks about me.
ü I will follow my plan for the day
ü At evening I will review my day, grade my success and pray for grace to improve tomorrow.
ü At evening I will also preview tomorrows plan for diet, exercise, soul nurturing and spiritual growth.

I've got a plan for today. First I have been taking care of my Spirit man.
Prayer was sweet this morning and the word was even better. Word for today: I am and I am becoming.
The word I got for today is: I am & I am becoming.
We must realize who, what & where we are in order to become the healthy person we desire to become.
2 Corinthians 3:18 - We are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
2 Corinthians 4:16 - Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
I am His Son because he said I was - "To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God" (John 1:12).
I am becoming his glory manifest - 2 Corinthians 3:18 For my Body I am going to the treadmill
where I will be working out by walking and I am looking forward to my Vi Shape Shake this evening (I use it to replace my evening meal. Of course I am not waiting until evening to eat. I will eat a healthy breakfast of Oatmeal (old fashioned style of course) and a banana. For lunch I will have a turkey meatloaf sandwich wrapped in lettuce and a glass of V8 juice.
Check out the Body By Vi Challenge at: http://www.newhopeministrybodybyvi.com/ For my Soul I will be reading the Word & Prayer for the day
and working on memorizing it as I meditate on the principles and walk on the treadmill.
Word: 2 Corinthians 3:18, 4:16
Prayer: Lord, it doesn't always feel like I am being transformed into your likeness, but I do not lose heart. Though outwardly I may not be much to look at, inwardly I am being renewed day by day. These daily troubles are not worthy to be compared with the glory you have for me. That is why I fix my eyes, not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. I know I am being transformed into your likeness with ever-increasing glory. Praise be to Christ the object of my desire. Amen.
There you have it - My BIG Challenge commitment for today.
Oh Yes, I weighed in at 256 this morning - That's down 61/2 pounds in a week and a half. The BIG Challenge works if you work it.
I hit 257.4 today. That's huge for me. I've just been on the challenge a few days and I'm down 5 pounds.
The Vi Shape Shake
is making a noticeable difference in the way I feel, the ease at which I can pass up food that isn't good for me and keep me from overindulging while I watch TV in the evening.
I am adding the B.I.G. Challenge to the Body ByVi 90 Day Challenge because I see the need in becoming healthy in my whole man - Body, Soul and Spirit. The B.I.G Challenge promotes wholeness and total health.
Every day I not only participate in a diet and nutrition routine but I also work on the spirit aspect of my person as well as the soul aspect.
For my spirit man I am starting my day with a devotion from the Daily God Walk, a devotional that challenges my commitment the principles Christ taught. Currently it is taking us through 30 days of learning the value of perseverance. Just CLICK HERE
to Check it out.
I'm also working on my soul man. I see that as my mind, will and emotions. My focus in this area is taken from Philippians 4:8 - developing right thinking and 2 Corinthians 10:5 - destroying arguments in my "self talk" which do not agree what God has said about me and taking captive every thought which leads me to believe less of myself than God has said that He thinks of me.
A book I use to reinforce my soul exercises in "Hope and Promises From God's Word." To get a copy JUST CLICK HERE.
So there you have it.I eat a good, healthy and nutritious breakfast, a healthy lunch and for my evening meal I have a Vi Shape Shake
It works for me and I bet it will work for you too. to get more information go to http://newhopeministry.bodybyvi.com
Yep, That's me. all 262.6 pounds. That was last Monday when I started the challenge. That was 5 pounds ago.
You read it right, 5 pounds ago. I have lost 5 pounds this week simply by making a few changes in my diet.
Change #1 - I cut down on my portion sizes.
Change #2 - I replaced one meal with a Vi Shape shake.
Change #3 - I only snack on healthy food between meals
That's basically it. Of course, I am also practicing the B.I.G. Challenge. What is that you ask?
The B..I.G. challenge is built on the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge.
It is a three point challenge designed to inspire health in Body, Soul and SpiritThe Body Challenge
is to follow the Body by Vi program substituting one meal a day with a good Vi Shape shake. The body challenge also includes exercise. I'm starting the exercise component slow because I have a heart condition which limits my activity.The Soul Challenge
works on my thought processes helping me to build right mental attitudes about life and changing wrong thinking. I use 2 Corinthians 10:5 as a core verse for this process: "We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."The Spirit Challenge
is my commitment to daily positioning myself so that I am centered in God's will and his plan for my life. That includes prayer, meditation, reading the Daily God Walk devotional complete with the principle statement, the affirmation statement and reflecting on the ideas stimulated by the devotion for the day. In fact, in the Daily God Walk there is a place to daily journal what is happening in your spirit life.
I encourage you to join the B.I.G. Challenge and begin to intentionally work on being healthy in your Body, Soul and Spirit.

Just a quick note today: I've completed my first full day of the Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge and WOW!
I know it's just one day but...
> I ate a healthy Breakfast (Jane makes a killer oatmeal casserole)
> I ate a delicious and healthy lunch: Cod cheeks (fish) and veggies.
> I experimented with mixing the Visalus Vi-Shape shake with steamed vegetables and V-8 juice. It was good except the Vi-Shape shake mix has a sweet taste which doesn't mix well with the vegetable taste.
> I lost a pound without getting hungry.
I am practicing the B.I.G. (Blessed Intersect Group) concept. I spent my first hour this morning working on my Spirit with prayer, Bible and meditation.
I guess the meditation part can also be "Soul" because I meditate on the Word which life changing power.

SCRIPTURE FOR TODAY:
Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengtrhed with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. - Colossians 1:9-12
WOW - what a word. I could write a book on all that is in this passage... In fact, I believe I will... look for it !
Recently I was introduced to the Body byVi 90 Day Challenge and I began to check it out.
Now, I have been involved with many diets over the years. Some of them worked, and some of them didn't, but all of them had one thing in common - the results never lasted.
Decade by decade my average weight has gone up regardless of how many times I dieted. I know I have lost 100's of pounds over the years, but I always gained it back, and then some.
So, when I heard about the Visalus 90 day challenge I had a ho-hum attitude. But, when I began checking it out I discovered something that I hadn't found in other diets. There was motivation, camaraderie, community, accountability and responsibility.
Well, to make the story a bit shorter I'll just tell you that I became convinced to begin the Body byVi 90 Day Challenge.
I began today. My Weigh in was 262.6 pounds as you can see by the picture on the right.
In future posts I will explore the value of the 5 components which make up an effective weight loss system and why the oldest and largest weight loss program is so successful.
