As any of my readers will know I’ve struggled a bit with my weight since having my second child. I never lost it like I did with my first and found comfort in fresh bread, chocolate and wine!
My youngest is now 4yrs old and it’s time for me to change. I have a wardrobe full of clothes I can’t wear and limit myself to the same few items that go through the wash, get worn and back in the wash again. I want the old me back, not that I was ever stick thin, but a healthy size 12-14 would be amazing!
So when Slimfast gave me the opportunity to take part in the 2 week #SlimFastChallenge, how could I refuse?
I lost 10lbs or so earlier this year and dropped a dress size but since then have become rather static with my weight loss. What appeals to me about Slimfast is that the meal and snack replacements are easy to grab on the go, there’s no excuse for not having something with you, or not having made something, or not having the ingredients in the house!
I’ll be following the 3.2.1 plan which involves having 3 snacks a day, 2 meal replacements (breakfast and lunch) and a 600 calorie meal in the evening. Being rather fond of carbohydrates and of course chocolate, the Slimfast plan snacks and meal replacements really appeal to me, Cheddar Flavour bites, Sour Cream & Chive Pretzels, Rich Chocolate Shake, Caramel Temptation Powder milkshake, Chocolate Crunch meal bar and many more!!! Sounds like a heavenly diet to me!
Each evening I have to provide my own 600 calorie meal, which I feel is quite generous. If you’re careful with your choices you can have a very plentiful meal with lots of fresh vegetables on the side.
I’m hoping that by following this plan, it will kickstart my weightloss again and that I get motivated to continue long after the 2 weeks is up, leaving me feeling fit and fabulous for the summer.
You can keep up with my progress under the #SlimFastChallenge hashtag on twitter and there’ll be a follow up post on here at the end of the two weeks.
Wish me luck!!
