Tania Rivera: “Vi gave me a direction in life!”
By ViSalus @visalus
Houston resident Tania Rivera always had problems maintaining her weight. She especially struggled mentally and physically after losing her stepfather and the family’s home in a short period of time.
After that, Tania lost her purpose in life, gained weight, and became anti-social.
“I was a size 12, weighed 177 lbs., and lacked confidence in myself,” says Tania.
However, having been raised by a single mother, Tania learned to overcome adversity. She switched her mentality and was determined to lose weight.
“I decided to stop creating barriers for myself. I wanted to see how far I could go,” she says.
Tania blocked herself from all distractions, hit the gym, and pushed herself passed her limits until she went down to 148 lbs. But during the holiday season, she had trouble maintaining her weight again.
It was then when she saw Buddy Rivera, the 2013 North American Vi Model, on Facebook. His amazing results immediately inspired her to accept The Challenge.
Tania joined Vi and realized she was able to maintain her weight thanks to the support of Vi’s Community and diverse line of products.
A New Direction
Now, at 136 lbs., her vision of life is completely different. Tania is a Rising Star Director and has big dreams for her future.
“I want to run for Vi Model,” she says. “I’m inspired by Buddy Rivera and Blanca Flores, the first Latina Vi Model.”
Tania has also become an inspiration for others. When she started to work out, many girls wanted her advice. She wanted to help them, but didn’t know how.
Vi has empowered her to guide others through their transformations. She’s even walking the talk and training to compete in an NPC bikini competition to become an IFBB Pro.
“For the first time in my life, I have a purpose. I can reach out to hundreds of people and share my story through the PROJECT 10™ Challenge,” says Tania.
In fact, she wants to dedicate her life to promote Vi. She’s grateful that her story has impacted a lot of people – it’s something Tania never imagined it was possible.
Plus, she doesn’t want to live paycheck to paycheck anymore. With Vi, she has the opportunity to earn an extra income by Challenging others 10 lbs. at a time.
Vitality Comes to Town
Tania’s transformation has not only been physical, it’s also been psychological. She has a new mentality and a new direction in life.
“Fitness, my faith in God, and Vi have completely changed my outlook in life,” says Tania.
She also found a great leader in Buddy Rivera because thanks to his vision, her team is receiving mentorship from Co-Founder and Global Ambassador Nick Sarnicola.
Adittionally, Tania is leveraging her testimony on social media to grow her team across the country. And with Vitality 2014 just around the corner, she’s anxious to experience the biggest Vi event of the year in her hometown.
“I’m so excited that Vitality is coming to Houston. I’ve never been to an event like it,” says Tania. “I’ve heard it’s life-changing.”
