130/365: No springs - honest weight

As you probably know, I want the option of being able to wear a bikini some day.  I’ve already started losing weight and I’m happy to tell you I’m 5 pounds lighter!

I couldn’t believe the scale when I weighed myself this morning! So far this has been one of the easiest, yummiest ways I’ve tried to lose weight.

In a previous post I mentioned how I’m now a Slim-Fast Ambassador participating in their Summer Slim-Down Challenge, but long before that and many years ago, I drank their chocolate shakes before my wedding and they helped get me to my goal. Back then, I think chocolate was the only flavor on the market in Mexico. Thankfully, nowadays there are tons of flavor options.

Here’s the easy-to-follow Slim Fast 3-2-1 Plan I’m using:

  • Pick 3 nourishing snacks a day:  fruit, veggies or a Slim-Fast 100 calorie snack bar
  • Choose 2 Slim-Fast 180-200 calorie shakes or meal bars each day
  • Have 1 sensible 500 calorie meal each day

I’ve been on the plan for two weeks now, and even though I’ve been traveling a lot, having the bars handy helps me stay on the program. Also, my life is crazy right now so just grabbing a shake from the fridge each morning is convenient.  The snack bars and ready-to-drink shakes have turned out to be great time savers. Best of all, they are tasty! I have a sweet tooth, so this plan is right up my alley. My favorite flavors so far are:

  • Shakes: Capuccino Delight
  • Snack Bars: Double-Dutch Chocolate and Chocolate Mint
  • Meal Bars: Fruit and Yogurt Trail Mix and Chocolate Cookie Dough

Would you like to try some? I have a cool giveaway today, we call it the Summer of WOW! Swag bag.  It contains everything you need to help you look your best before hitting the beach including a $20 gift card to a top department store, a bright beach tote, a premium infuser water bottle, and a sampling of Slim-Fast products.

Win it!
