Lost 30 lbs. and 16″ in 26 weeks
Where to start? SlimFast has completely changed my life. A few months ago I decided to begin a journey that I never thought could impact my life so much. When I started SlimFast, I knew it would be a great opportunity to get my old body back. I am a business owner, a mom of 2 boys (whom I homeschool full-time), a housewife, and overall just very busy.
When I was instructed on how the SlimFast Plan worked, I said: “This is perfect for my busy life! I just don’t really think I can lose over 20 pounds.” And here we are, after committing myself to my goal! I can tell you today that I have lost over 25 pounds! Yes! I went from size 8 to a size 1-2! I feel AMAZING!
I used to hate having breakfast. Now I love it and wake up eager to have my smoothie! I love using the SlimFast Advanced Vanilla Smoothie powder. My recipe is simple: 1 scoop of the SlimFast Advanced Vanilla Smoothie powder, 1/2 banana, 1 cup of 30 calorie almond milk, 1 tbsp. of peanut butter powder, 1 tbsp. of ground flaxseed, tons of ice, and hot coffee! Yes, hot coffee, because when I pour the hot coffee into my blender with the ice and all the ingredients, it helps everything blend better with the ice and it makes a bigger portion. What does a bigger portion do for me? I drink my shake over the course of an hour. Then I feel full longer! All together the shake is about 255 calories with 17g of protein. I skip one snack a day to allow for extra ingredients in my shake!
After my morning shake I do my workout. Whether it’s an at home workout, in the gym, or hot yoga, I try to burn 250-350 calories per workout. Then I continue my day! After my workout I have a SlimFast Snack, then a shake for lunch, then another snack, then a dinner around 500 calories and boom! Oh, and I drink a LOT of Water! I decided to count my calories at the beginning to learn how I should be eating. With time, I learned to understand my body and know what I should and should not eat. The best part is that I only have to worry about ONE meal: My dinner! Because everything else is just so easy!
During dinner I get creative. I like searching for fun and healthy recipes and now my whole family enjoys dinner time even more! It is pretty great when your 8-year-old tells you: “Mommy, I like what you are having, can I have some?” I am so thankful that I found SlimFast!!!!! Everyone kept telling me in my journey that I could do it and to not give up. It was not until I actually did it that I finally realized when we have a goal, it just takes commitment and passion to do it… then the reward is simply priceless! Now SlimFast is officially part of my life!
Thank you SlimFast! Forever thankful!
