The Energizing Tea, Smoothee Mix, and Meal and Snack Bars ensure that this is not only a meal replacement program, but a clinically tested, breakthrough approach to weight loss. These products are not only designed to boost my metabolism, they are also going to help retain muscle and remove belly fat at the same time!
It has been eight weeks since I vowed to turn my weight loss woes around and, believe it or not, I am still just as enthralled with these smoothees as I was at the very beginning.
|Seriously, the Hamilton Beach Single-Serve Blender is my favorite single-size blender ever!|
As well as the HUGE variety of flavors and recipes that I've tried, I have to admit that I also still love the concept of mixing up a quick meal right in my blender. For someone who has no willpower and will go overboard clearing my plate simply because it is there, drinking my breakfast (and often my lunch) actually comes as a relief.
No pacing around the kitchen wondering what I'm going to have, no measuring out perfect serving sizes of cereal or oatmeal or pasta, no stress over what is going to tempt me when I open the refrigerator, just reach for my Shaklee 180™ and know that my body is getting everything it needs.
But while I have been able to withstand most of the temptations that my family has provided these past eight weeks, I've come to realize that my biggest challenge seems to be blogging.
When every one of those food reviews are posted, I've had to eat all of the deliciousness for myself, right?
How can I tell you that Totino's Party Pizza, the Mezzaluna Ravioli at Olive Garden and Pesto Pizza made with Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust are rich and delicious without devouring them for myself?
Don't even get me started on the Carrot Cupcakes. I'm too ashamed to tell you how many of them I ended up eating myself, even though the kids did their best to help out.
As well as my reviews, as calorie-laden as they were, my biggest eating challenges this month have been eating away from home. If you read my post on visiting the Step2 Headquarters recently, then you saw a glimpse of the incredible meals that they fed us morning, noon and night.
Of course I had packed a bag with my Shaklee 180™ Meal and Snack Bars, but was there any way that I was going to pull one out and eat it instead of plates that looked like these?
As if Step2 wasn't generous enough with all of their delicious meals, while you're reading this, I'm in Lancaster, PA at the Auntie Anne's Headquarters.
That's right, Auntie Anne's, home of the most decadent, handcrafted, freshly-baked pretzels around. Let's just say that when they sent the invitation, they included this line to give me a hint at just how many of these pretzels we would be eating: "Bring your taste buds and stretchy pants."
Am I slightly frightened to get on the scale at the end of this month to see what the results are from April?
However, am I still extremely confident that the Shaklee 180™ program is going to help me reach my weight loss goals little by little?
No matter where I am or what is going on in my life (or the excuses that I come up with to blame my poor eating choices on), Shaklee 180™ is helping me feel better about myself day after day.
As I said last month, this is the last weight loss program that I hope to try, as I'm determined to get these pounds off and keep them off.
If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.
Starting weight: Ugh.
Week 1: -5 lbs
Week 4: -10.2 lbs
Week 4: -10.2 lbs
