More Than a Dietary System

Approximately seven months ago, I started using a supplementary diet system more for the benefits that it claimed to provide for overall health than for weight loss.  The weight loss did come, however, as can be seen above.  The upper photo shows me at the beginning of my first week of taking Yoli, and the lower photo shows me after the second week.  Although I was able to lose my stomach very quickly, perhaps the greatest improvement was my energy levels; previously I had been feeling so wrung out and weary.  I struggled to maintain activity until 9:00 P.M. when I would drop into bed, exhausted.  After beginning the Yoli regimen, I noticed a significant uptick in my energy levels, and a definite increase in my stamina.  First I noticed it in my ability to maintain a good degree of physical activity far beyond my former capability.  Then after the school year began in the fall, I found I was able to study into the wee hours of the morning.  Needless to say, that was extremely important during a semester that required more study time than I had previously had to put out.  Additionally, I was able to completely stop using vitamins and herbs that had been prescribed by a doctor along with prescription medication to alleviate migraines that would cause horrible bouts of dizziness.  Even my husband agrees that my health has greatly improved since taking Yoli.

The Homestretch

     Finally, I feel as though I have reached the homestretch of this semester.  After  a grueling first seven weeks, the end is finally in sight.  I am finally down to my labs in microbiology, a paper in sociology, and my final exams. Weary and worn down, I really am looking forward to the winter break and some downtime from my studies.  I am looking forward to spending time with my husband and boys and just being able to go to bed at a decent hour once again.  As we approach the holiday season, I really would love to return to Williamsburg to see the town with its Christmas season decorations.  Of course, one of my favorite things to do at this time of year is to go shopping, even if it is mostly window shopping.  Hubby and the boys tend to be a little more forgiving about spending time in the stores at this time of year.  Usually, I feel rushed when I am shopping.  Hopefully, when school resumes, I will feel rejuvenated.

Visiting the Past in Williamsburg

     Hubby sprang a neat surprise on me with this trip to Williamsburg.  I had mentioned that I would like us to do something special for our tenth anniversary.  A few days earlier he suggested to me that since I was off from school for a day sandwiched by a couple of days that I had no classes, we could perhaps take the boys to Williamsburg for a three day field trip and spend some leisure time together.  After seeing some photos online of the area, I readily acquiesced.  It was a wonderful trip!  I was able to get some needed time away from the books while still being able to spend a little time in the evening studying, but the days were filled with fun.  I learned a lot about US history and had an even better time wandering through the many shops in the area.  I just love to go shopping even if it is only window shopping, something of which my husband is not necessarily fond.  He was a good sport though and took me to a number of shops.  I would love to visit again in December just before Christmas.
