Body by Vi Challenge Jason Cabral

This week’s ViSalus Transformation focuses on an individual who recently joined the 100 Pound Club – an elite club that is only for ViSalians that have lost 100+ pounds. Jason Cabral spent much of his life being unable to participate in activities that required a lot of physical movement – until he joined The Body by Vi Challenge. Since joining The Challenge, life has been very different for Jason.

Read below as Jason shares his Body by Vi story, in his own words.

“All through my life I have been a big guy, went through childhood big, being ridiculed at times, but built up a wall to block it out and started to joke along to make it seem less hurtful. Over time I grew numb to it all, even the weight became a normal part of life. I battled to lose weight, only and inevitably putting it all back on whatever I lost, plus more. When I was 30 years old, my doctor looked at me and told me that I was aging faster then I should be, every day I was damaging my body, and because of the lack of care, I now had Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and High Cholesterol.

My family had a history of these illnesses and I was following suit. I blew it off, like it was no big deal. I was a typical guy, stopped going to the doctor, and felt that if I didn’t hear any bad news, then I was fine. I was in destructible. Man, what was I thinking?

Scan forward a few years, I packed on a few more pounds and now had a family to worry about. I got another check up and was hit in the face with a brick wall. The doctor told me that I now needed Insulin because I had let the Diabetes get out of control, my blood sugar was nearly 500, and my A1C test was over 13. The doctor actually told me that I was the worst patient she ever had and wanted me to find a new doctor.

That really took me by surprise, more than everything else. It was a wake up call, and got me re-fired up. I wanted to live, live for my family, my kids, and even more importantly, for myself. I started injecting myself with Insulin, twice a day, which made me feel so horrible. I knew it was all preventable, but I let myself go so far, I felt like a junky. I was probably at the lowest point in my life.

With that, I had a fire building in me; I knew I wanted to change. My cousin introduced me to The Challenge a few months after that and everything changed. At my highest, I weighed a knee crunching 364 lbs. The first week, I lost 7 lbs., then another 7 lbs., and then another 7lbs. In addition to the weight, my sugar was coming down. I felt the fire growing inside me to a white-hot flame, I not only had a burning desire, but a new found passion for health and weight loss.

Practically my whole life up to that point I was heavy- I woke up everyday sick and tired, of feeling sick and tired. Unless you have been there, it is hard for people to understand. Watching your little boy play at the park and him wanting you to run with him but you just can’t. It’s heart breaking. I hated that part of me, but after a few weeks I saw myself shedding that part.

I was shedding all my baggage, along with the weight. Nearly a year later, I was blown away to find the scale read 254 lbs. I couldn’t believe it, I got on again, 254 lbs, I still couldn’t believe my eyes, I have lost 110 lbs now! I no longer needed Insulin to control Diabetes, or High Blood or High Cholesterol Medications as well. At my last check up my A1C was down to 7, practically a normal number, even my doctor was blown away!

My life has been totally transformed because of the Challenge. My cousins, who got me involved, will be competing in the Family Challenge at Vitality with me. I have been able to do so many new things now- things that most people who have never been heavy take for granted. I treasure the little things such as having my little boy sit on my lap and being able to run around with him. All through school in P.E. you have to run a mile for the class. I was never able to do it, let alone a lap without having a breathing attack. A few months ago, I ran a mile straight without stopping for the first time in my life.

I just stood there after I did it – with tears running down my face, masked by sweat. I tried to maintain my tough guy facade, but couldn’t believe I had come so far. I am only 34 lbs. away from my ultimate goal of reaching 220 lbs. and being in the best shape of my life at 38 years young, which I fully intend to do by Vitality. ViSalus and the Body By Vi Challenge has changed my life forever and put me on a path where I can impact thousands upon thousands of people.

I truly feel that God brought the Challenge to me so I can help people feel the way I feel right now. I want to thank Ryan, Nick, Blake and the whole ViSalus family for putting this awesome company together and helping me live for my family and show my son that if Dad can do it, anybody can!!!”
