Lost 81 lbs. and 28” in 39 weeks†
After a disheartening encounter with his daughter, Gerard S. knew he wanted to make a change and found SlimFast. After finding a new outlook, Gerard lost 81 lbs. and 28” in thirty nine weeks! Gerard shares his success on the SlimFast Plan below.
Last March, my daughter made me aware of how big I was when she tried to sit on my lap. I had no lap to offer because of my stomach. Later that night I hopped on the scale and was embarrassed to see 276 pounds displayed on the screen. I decided, after my birthday I’d start a diet. April 1,, 2019 would be Day One. I wanted to reach my goal weight of 200 pounds. Jumping ahead 11 months and over 89 pounds lost, I am now 187 pounds. I went from a 46” waist down to a cozy 34”. I set mini goals and made sure to always be prepared throughout the day.
To this day I’m tempted at night to eat everything in sight but what keeps me focused is how great I feel. I love when people ask me what my secret is. It’s funny to see their reaction when I tell them I’m doing the SlimFast Plan. “No way!”, is typically the first words spoken, but after a couple of minutes I’m asked, ”Do you think SlimFast will work for me?” I’m pleased to say I recruited two co-workers, one neighbor, my sister, and my cousin, all because I made them believers in SlimFast and I keep reminding them the most important thing to remember is to be patient with yourself and never give up.

If there was one thing, I learned about my journey is staying focused and always be prepared by having meals planned out before you leave so you’re not tempted to go off course. Unfortunately for me, not every day was easy to plan out. So, if today you don’t succeed tomorrow, is a new day. Before I started this journey, I was basically a couch guy. I just wanted to eat, drink and make excuses why we couldn’t leave the house. Today I look forward to my morning workout before work and getting outside with my kids and chasing them around.
SlimFast has honestly given me a new outlook on life. April 1, 2020 will be exactly one year since I twisted off my first cap of SlimFast Advanced Energy Caramel Latte and haven’t looked back. I’ve tried all the flavors, but the Caramel Latte is my favorite. I also love the SlimFast Keto Chocolate Mint Cup Fat Bombs.

Thanks to the support group I’ve not only discovered new products, but I learned how to prepare meals and late night snacks without the guilt. I don’t think I could’ve gotten this far without the people in the SlimFast Together Community. We are people from all over with one thing in common which is weight loss and some of these people who were once strangers to me, are now people I consider family. Reading their stories and seeing their happiness is what gives me my drive to stay focused to succeed.
