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#
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.
