Fourteen days ago I took a photo of myself before I embarked on the SlimFast Challenge. You’ll find all the details about the actual challenge in my initial post. You can find that here.
This post is purely for me to tell you about my experience and share the result with you.
I started with a very open mind. I’ve tried SlimFast in the past and lost a couple of pounds here and there but I’ve never stuck at it for any length of time. Probably due to the fact that I run out of products or slip up and think that because I’ve slipped up I’ve ruined it all. Which obviously isn’t the case at all.
In the last two weeks I have had ‘bad’ days. I went out for a three course meal with my work colleagues and drank a little too much wine to fit in with the ‘rules’. This was followed by a couple of days of not taking it too seriously but a new week began and I got right back on it. I’ve been careful and continued to watch the calorie intake but I didn’t even get to do all that exercise I talked about in my last post. I really did think I’d wasted this fantastic opportunity.
Until tonight. Even though I’ve still got a few days left of the challenge – due to my slip ups, I bit the bullet and took my ‘after’ photo. I needed to know if I’d done enough. And to be fair, the fourteen days I’d been given were up.
I have been getting on the scales and according to them, even though I don’t completely trust them, I have lost in the region of 6lb. But it varies from day to day – so I don’t trust them. I prefer to go on appearances and how my clothes fit. So the photo really was going to give me the facts I needed to know.
So. Let’s have a look… I think it’s safe to say that there is a definite difference. Face, arms, waist and hips. All quite a bit smaller. In just TWO WEEKS. Needless to say, I’m pretty bloody chuffed.
The products taste great – and that’s not an exaggeration. And I really didn’t feel hungry, in the slightest. I also enjoyed my evening meal much more than normal. I think it helped that I had all my food there in the kitchen and I didn’t have to worry about running out. So if I was to give any advice, it would be to buy ALL of your products first and then there really is no excuse. Especially at the moment as they’re all on a 3 for 2 offer in the likes of Boots and Superdrug. I will certainly been carrying on with this and intend to bulk buy some more products so that I can carry on with this great routine.
Lastly I need to thank SlimFast for giving me this opportunity. You’ve got yourself a very satisfied customer.
