This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Let me preface this by saying that I am not fat. Not obese by any means. But I am overweight for ME and my body build. I am 5′ 3″ with tiny bones.
All through High School, I was extremely active in Cheerleading, so that kept me in tip top shape. Then after high school I gained about 5-10 pounds. No biggie. Then I met my husband. The old saying kicked in ,”fat and happy”. I went to my all time weight high. THEN I got pregnant. I weighed 206 pounds when I delivered my first baby. Sure, after the baby, I lost some weight, but I still looked like I ate a small village. In 2007, I decided to get into shape. I went to the gym TWO hours every day and lived on tuna fish and nuts. I was rockin a hot body. I weighed 123 pounds, did not have one cellulite dimple on me, was 100% toned and looked like I was 18. I felt like a million bucks. I was sooooo happy with my outer exterior. I told myself I would never get fat again. But honestly, I just couldn’t keep up that pace. I got so burned out. And in April 2008, I began my blog. The tuna and nuts were replaced by chocolate, butter and sugar. Slowly but surely, the weight came back on. Now I am back to being unhappy with myself and feeling uncomfortable in my own skin. Sure, people look at me and say your not fat, but I hide it well. I am tired of not fitting into any of my clothes. I can say that I am not going to quit my blog or make it a health food blog…what fun would that be? But something needs to change.
But there is a way that I believe that I do keep my weight under the 400 pounds I should weigh, considering all of the goodies I indulge in, and that is Slim-Fast.
In the mornings, I have 2 kids to get off to school, so there is no way I have time to cook myself a healthy breakfast. So I grab a Slim-Fast shake and drink it in the car.
I used to drink Slim Fast in High School. All they had back then was the powder that you had to mix yourself.
Long gone are those days. I actually enjoy drinking it now and it keeps me full. I am going to try really hard to get some weight off. I just need to gain some self control. I just LOVE food soooo much.
But who wants to live on diet shakes alone? That’s boring. Slim Fast also has some delicious snack Bars and meal replacement bars as well.
I personally love the Chocolate Nougat Gone Nuts bar. It reminds me of a candy bar and curves my daily chocolate cravings.
The new Slim-Fast Plan is the 3-2-1 plan.
- You have 3 snacks throughout the day ..example..1 Slim-Fast 100 calorie snack bar, nuts, fruits and or veggies. This keeps your metabolism working all day.
- Choose 2 Slim-Fast shakes or meal bars during the day.
- Eat a 500 calorie balanced meal once a day
Let’s face it. Loosing weight boils down to calories in/calories out. Slim-Fast pretty much takes the thinking out of dieting. Just reach for a bar or a shake and you are good to go.
Slim-Fast can be purchased at most grocery stores, drug stores, online and big box stores. However, if you need help finding it, click here to find out where it is sold near you.
I am going to try to loose weight, I really am. I want to feel healthy again, and I hope that Slim-Fast can help me reach my goal. Now I am off to find the Lower Carb Creamy Chocolate Shake!!!!!
