Dave and Esther Bengel weren’t always the picture of health and happiness that their friends see today. Dave used to wake up “like a zombie, clawing for the coffee pot,” while his wife Esther battled daily migraines and depression.
“I don’t even recognize our lives before The Challenge,” says Esther. “We had poor eating habits. We were apathetic about nutrition and always tired. Everything was a struggle. And then we just stopped caring altogether.”
The Body by Vi™ Introduction
When Esther’s health threatened her pregnancy, the couple got serious and joined the Body by Vi 90-Day™ Challenge. They started with the Transformation Kit and were blown away by the results.
In just one week, Dave lost six pounds and gained levels of energy and mental focus he had never had before, thanks to the added nutrition of the Vi-Shape™ shakes and the Vi-pak™.
“My favorite shake tastes just like a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. I add peanut butter, a quarter of a banana, and the chocolate mix-in. It’s crazy good! Every single time I drink it, I laugh out loud and say, ‘I can’t believe I’m gonna lose weight drinking this!’ But I always do.”
Esther lost 25 pounds on her first 90-Day Challenge, and she “was hooked.”
“It’s not just the changes on the outside. This has made such a difference emotionally. I didn’t realize how much my health and eating affected my life. And I literally can’t live without Vi-pak. If I go three days without Vi-pak, I get a migraine on the fourth day.”
Dave and Esther challenged themselves to lose 100 pounds as a couple. They decided that doing it together would give them a built-in support system at home, and they were right!
“We encouraged each other every step of the way. It totally blew past anything we expected!” Dave recalls. “We love the Body by Vi Challenge because 90 days is just short enough that anyone can commit to it, but long enough to actually change your life.”
The Bengels ended up losing 116 pounds together on the Body by Vi™ Challenge, and that’s just one of many positive results for these Body by Vi Ambassadors.
“We have so much energy, and we’re a lot more productive,” raves Esther. “Even better, we’ve taken ourselves out of the danger zone for obesity-related diseases. If we skip a day without having a shake, we definitely feel like we didn’t eat well. We know that we’re getting the right amount of nutrition that our bodies need with the Vi-Shape shake.”
Dave added, “We love promoting The Challenge. We literally now design our lifestyle from day to day. We choose when we want to work, for how long we want to work, where we want to work. And the bonus is that we get to help change others’ lives, too. That’s why it’s so easy to be passionate about this.”
Sharing The Challenge
Dave and Esther are thrilled that they can impact so many lives while creating a prosperous future for their family, and they wouldn’t have it any other way.
“The fact that we can actually bring in income on top of everything is really a dream come true; we can’t imagine anything better,” concludes Dave. “When you overcome health issues like we did, you want to share that experience with others. Our achievement convinced us that we could help people reach their personal health goals with The Challenge. It’s been such a privilege to make a positive difference in people’s lives!”
