As many of you know i’ve been participating in the Slim Fast 14 day Challenge. It has been an amazing experience. 2 weeks ago I told you I was taking part in the challenge. Although many of you would say I’m already slim, I have this “flap” of fat around my mid section that I can’t get rid of! I’m sure it’s from having babies, but it’s sooo tough to tackle. I work out and do tons of sit ups, but it still hasn’t dissapeared.
So what I’ve been doing is simple. I’ve been eating meal replacement bars twice a day, and then one good healthy meal. The shakes can also be used instead of the bars, and in between they have the MOST delicious double chocolate snack bars. When I tell you these are delicious, I’m not lying. I have since purchased them at the store because I’m obsessed with them and I prefer them over any other snack. My 2 year old even takes to them, but every time she would bite into my Slim Fast bar she wouldnt’t eat her next meal so I had to put an end to that.
I have to say what I like most about Slim Fast is how simple it is. Instead of having to make a sandwich or a lunch I simply have a bar that has protein in it that keeps me full for an extensive amount of time. Although I work at home, if I did work in an office setting, I have to say this would ideal because I wouldn’t have to pack a lunch every day, I could lose weight AND it’s simple and easy and QUICK. Usually if I’m in a huge hurry, I would jump through a drive-thru, yes FAST food. Which packs on the pounds like you wouldn’t believe. Actually I’m sure most of you know this to be true already. So instead of turning to Mcdonalds, I can turn to Slim Fast. That in itself is a weight killer for me.
So what were my results? I’m happy to say I’ve lost 3 pounds in the last 2 weeks. It may not seem like a lot to some of you, but I’m already extremely short, standing in at only 4’11, so 3 pounds to me is a lot. Slim Fast really does work, although you should take into consideration working out and what else you eat through out the day. It’s not a miracle, you have to work at losing the weight too- because that one large meal I would eat at night should still be somewhat healthy. I suggest while eating a meal replacement bar OR the shake to drink a lot of water through out the day to help you stay full. I would totally recommend Slim Fast to someone trying to lose weight or not eat the junk they usually do. I even went to Walmart yesterday and purchased the Slim Fast shakes and the snack bars. I was a little scared that the price would be high, but each product was only $5, happy surprise!
Sorry I have no before pic, but just believe me when I say these jeans would have been a tad bit snugger 2 weeks ago.
