Throughout the years I have always kept a decent weight by being active in and out of the gym. After a physical injury prevented me from being as active as usual for several months, I had gained a considerable amount of weight. This was unusual territory for me, I was heavier than ever and did not know how to combat the unhealthy eating habits I gained while I was healing my body. I was eating constantly and out of boredom. Coupled with my lower level of activity, I increased pants sizes at a drastic rate. Self doubt and criticism followed swiftly with the thoughts that I would not be able to regain the physical prowess I once had.
I attribute being stuck in that rut as leading me to one of the least happy moments of my life. I couldn’t participate in the fun sports and gym activities I had once been able to. Worse off, I was worried that I would not be able to travel like I once had in the past. A year prior I had climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with my brother at a pace that left our guides struggling to keep up with us. We were active, quick, and energetic, to the point that our guides said we were the fastest people they ever took up the tallest peak in Africa! Fast forward less than a year and I was struggling to climb a flight of stairs without being out of breath and feeling my heart beating out of my chest. I was unhealthy and unhappy.
Everything changed when I was introduced to SlimFast. Their Plan was simple, two shakes a day and three snacks coupled with a healthy meal at night. I followed the SlimFast Plan and the weight came off. I lost 25 pounds and 7 inches! The shakes and snacks are delicious and made it easy to stick to the Plan, I looked forward to my meal breaks. As an active professional who is constantly on the road, the ease of the snacks and shakes was also a major added benefit! I am now feeling healthier than ever and more capable to tackle mountains, literally Thank you SlimFast for helping me lose the weight, and a few pants sizes as well.
