Lost 100 lbs. and 55” in 41 weeks†
After seeing photos from a recent vacation, Liz K, a Cardiac Nurse and mother, felt she needed to make a change in her life to get healthy and lose weight. Once she found SlimFast she never looked back and shares her success below.
Hello! I’m Liz. I am a thirty-six-year-old wife, mom and nurse. My life is super busy and SlimFast fits in perfectly with my schedule. I started my SlimFast journey in June of 2018 weighing in at my heaviest “known” weight of 255 pounds. I couldn’t believe the numbers I saw on the scale! I’ve tried all the other meal replacement shakes and bars before, and I was never satisfied. SlimFast was a game-changer for me. The SlimFast products are delicious, filling, and so easy to take on-the-go. I never felt deprived of anything and that is what made the SlimFast Plan the only plan I have been able to stick with.
My family and I went on vacation to the beach and I wore my cover-up the entire time. I was too embarrassed to be seen in my swimsuit. When we got home and I really sat down and looked at the photos we had taken, I couldn’t believe what I saw. I looked at myself in the photos, and I didn’t recognize myself. I didn’t realize I had gotten that heavy. I had always been overweight, but never as much as I was in those photos. That day, looking at what should have been fantastic memories with my daughter, husband and me playing on the beach, I made the decision to change my life.
“When we got home and I really sat down and looked at the photos we had taken, I couldn’t believe what I saw. I looked at myself in the photos, and I didn’t recognize myself.”
Following the SlimFast Plan took all the guess work out of dieting. Although, I don’t consider SlimFast a diet, it is most certainly a lifestyle change for me. Knowing that I had my shakes for breakfast and lunch, and still being able to have three delicious snacks throughout the day, kept my meal plans easy and satisfying. I never got bored! I took my journey day by day. I celebrated each small victory as they came. The first major goal I had was to get under 200 pounds. I would weigh in weekly, and track everything. I remember wanting to jump for joy the first time I saw a “1” as the first number on the scale.
For a person who hates shopping for clothes because of having to face the reflection in the mirror, buying new things has become a super fun experience. I started off wearing a 22W pants and dresses at the beginning of my journey, and now I’m wearing size 6/8 dresses and pants! I look forward to trying on new things! My biggest motivation to hit my goal of losing 100 pounds was the repeat of our family beach vacation in May of 2019. I hit my goal for that trip, and I not only went without a swimsuit cover-up, but I wore a two-piece! I felt confident, beautiful, and full of energy. I didn’t have a second thought about running up and down the beach with my daughter. My SlimFast p,roducts made the trip with us! This Plan is so easy to continue and stick to, even on vacation.

Looking back at photos of myself from the beginning of my journey to now still blows me away. I am so grateful that I found SlimFast. It has changed my life. 100 pounds and 55 inches gone forever! My friends and family tell me that I’m half the person I was before, but I am so much more! I’m a happier, healthier and more confident person!
