My First Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge

#1 Weight Loss & Fitness Challenge in North America

A few months ago, I received a phone call from my co-workers wife, Samone. She had recently started the Body By Vi 90 Day Challenge and was planning her first challenge party. Since Matt (said co-worker) had read my post about struggling with weight loss, he figured I’d be a good person to add to the guest list. And he was right.

Struggling With Weight Loss

I’ve struggled with weight loss for as long as I can remember. Even at 13 while weighing 127 lbs I obsessed about my weight. I don’t think I’ll ever see that number on the scale again, but thankfully I don’t feel like I have to. I’d happily settle for 170 or 180 since I’m fairly tall for a girl and I don’t mind having curves.

Unfortunately for me I’m about 70 lbs away from that goal. I can probably list out a billion and one excuses on how I got to be so overweight, but it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t change what’s happened. No matter how you slice it I still have this monumental battle ahead of me. I’m only 32 and yet I can’t even walk around the mall for too long before feeling tired, and run down.

Get Uncommon: Custom iphone Cases

They’re here! They’re here! The custom iphone cases I ordered last week are finally here! This is the second time I’ve ordered from Uncommon and I’m SO excited about it.


My first Uncommon purchase. An iphone 3G case for John on V-day 2 years ago.

Uncommon makes the most well-designed, highest quality customizable products available! Their proprietary 3D TATT® (Thermo-Active Transdermal Technology) process ensures durable, long-lasting, high resolution imagery on every product they imprint. They then package your art with care and ship it quickly and safely to your door. (Ok, so I might have borrowed and tweaked that last part from their site. Could you tell? It doesn’t make me any less excited though.)

AMMIH iphone case

I made this one for my husband John for THIS Valentine's Day.

I’m so freaking happy with how these turned out I can’t decide which case to put on my phone!

Seriously though, these babies are gorgeous. They don’t chip and are incredibly durable.

Uncommon was also nice enough to throw in some 20% off coupons which I will happily share with you.

Leave a comment and tell me what you’d like to put on your custom case. I’ll pick two random winners on Monday, February 20th, 2012. You’ll each receive an Uncommon 20% off coupon code via email (so be sure to leave your email address!).
