Slim Fast Solutions for Battling the Bulge

slim fastAs you know, I struggle with my weight.  I’ll go along and do alright, but then something will come along like Thanksgiving or a birthday or happy hour or that time of the month and I’ll gain weight.

Somewhere along the way I’ve allowed those occasional few pound weight gains to add up to 70 pounds.  How did that happen?  Couldn’t I have realized at 5 pounds that I had gained a few, taken a few weeks of cutting back and then gotten rid of it before it added up to 70 pounds?

Although I realize that the majority of my weight gain has been during my 3 pregnancies, there are still weeks when I gain a few pounds that is completely unrelated to being pregnant (considering my youngest is almost 4!).  I really need to just jump right on losing those pesky pounds while it’s still just 2 to 5 pounds before they add up to intimidating numbers.

My solution?  Slim-Fast.

The Slim-Fast 3-2-1 plan includes:

  • 3 snacks – either slim fast 100 calories bars or fruits or veggies
  • 2 Slim Fast meals – either shakes or meal bars
  • 1 reasonable dinner

What I like about Slim Fast is that you can just commit to using it for a week or two, not really have to think about what you’re going to eat, it’s affordable, convenient (can buy it almost anywhere – Target, Safeway, King Soopers, Amazon), and you can get rid of those pounds that snuck up on you right away before they get out of control.

Plus the flavors are good!  I’ve only tried the chocolate shakes before, but I used my coupon to get Strawberries ‘N Cream this time.  Can’t wait to try it!  I also liked the Slim Fast Facebook page to stay on top of the new flavors and products.

By the way, there are coupons for Slim Fast on right now!

    • Hi there! I haven’t actually used Slim Fast recently. I have been using Nutrisystem for the past two months and find it really works and imagine that slim fast would be similar. The trick being to relearn portions, take the choosing what and when to eat out of the equation and staying on top of your weight before it adds up to huge numbers.

      10lbs is a great place to decide to take control! I’d love to know if you try slim fast and if it works for you…
