A plan...the Slim-Fast way

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'm going to get a little vulnerable here for a minute.  K?  As some of you know, my hubby is currently away for school.  No worries, we are almost finished. :)  But, while he's been gone I have realized that I have to get my eating/workout schedule in check.  I tend to be a yo-yo dieter/exerciser.  I will go a few weeks doing awesome and losing some weight while eating right and working out, then I will fall off that wagon and go completely opposite of that.  I have been on this train for years, since having my third child.  And I am sick of it.

I know I have to get my food, snacking, exercising, and weight in order and soon.  I mean the holidays are right around the corner, and we are going to be busier than ever.

The New Creamier Slim-Fast shakes come in four different flavors#  They have Strawberries and Cream, Rich Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and French Vanilla!  YAY!! I chose Strawberries an Cream.


I like the idea of Slim-Fast cause who doesn't love a shake?  I mean, really?   shake for a meal, yes please! ;)  They have a great plan where you level#  The 3#2#1 plan lets you choose#  If you chose level 1, which is where I am starting, then you would supplement one shake for one meal#  For level 2 you would substitute a meal for a hake, and have a Slim-Fast Snack#  For level 3 you would use two shakes in the place of two meals, and a Slim-Fast snack#

Today was my first day on Level 1 of Slim-Fast#  I had a good breakfast, but was starving y lunch time#  I opened my shake, and started drinking it very slowly#  I must admit, I started drinking it so slow because I really was not expecting it to fill me up#  I was thinking how in the world is this going to work with me being so hungry??  I didn't believe it would work, so I wanted to savor each drink#  lol  However, after I was half way done I could definitely tell a difference in my hunger pains# Then when I finished I was full, but not "stuffed" like I normally feel when I over eat#  Yep, I'm hooked#

My next thought was, there is no way this will keep me full until dinner#  I will be starving and want to snack#  Nope!  Of course when it was time for dinner I was hungry, but I did not feel any differently then when I eat a regular meal.  Slim-Fast shakes have totally won me over.  Now snacks.....I am a TOTAL SNACK eater#  I love snacks.  Chips are my FAV!  Do you understand me when I say FAV?  I mean, I could eat the whole bag at one time, if I let myself.  Not kidding.  I also love chocolate and candy#  That's right, I am in no way a snack snob.  I will take anything.  Next week I plan on buying some of the Slim-Fast snacks that they have available.  I will let you all know how that goes as well#

I also plan on keeping up to date with Slim-Fast products through their Facebook page.

So now that I have put myself out there, and my journey to become a healthier person, please be nice and don't leave any hate mail#  ;)  it takes a lot of courage to come out about things so personal#  Ya know?  And I would love to know if any of you have ever tried Slim-Fast?  Did you like it?  What was your experience with it?

What's even better is that you can buy Slim-Fast products at Wal-Mart, Target, and most large Grocery stores.

*I was given a coupon to purchase my first set of Slim-Fast shakes in order to post my experience.  All opinions are 100% mine, and I will never lie about my experiences to promote a product I am not completely satisfied with.
