I Took the SlimFast Challenge and Lost! #SlimFastChallenge

Two weeks ago I committed to the SlimFast 14-Day Challenge and lost! Yes it is OK to not win some challenges especially when it meant dropping 10.4 pounds of weight! Yes I lost but won all at the same time. This was a sponsored challenge through Global Influence and SlimFast. My own opinions and results are shared here.

Slim Fast

I have been on a healthier lifestyle journey since April 2012. I have lost over 60 pounds of fat over this time. Not only have I lost weight but I have gained muscle mass, lost many inches, gained strength and confidence and have made a lot of new friends at my gym and online who are on the same journey. Late fall 2013 through the new year I kept exercising but had a plateau of weight loss. I was excited to take the SlimFast Challenge to give my body a kick start into dropping more pounds.



How did I do it? I substituted two meals a day with a SlimFast Shake and/or Meal Replacement Bar. I ate more fruit and veggies, stayed away from all desserts and ate one tasty, healthy meal a day. I made sure to drink water and continued going to the gym several times a week.

I do not know how this diet would work long term but it sure worked for the 14 days when I tried it.  I drank the chocolate ready made shakes and cookie dough meal replacement bars. I did find that they helped me not crave chocolate for two weeks!

Woohoo! Congratulations on your 60lbs weight loss, that's awesome! I might have to try this Slim Fast Challenge - there were way too many pies, cookies and candy involved in this past holiday season festivities!
