Thank you Shaklee™ - weight loss results

"There are two kinds of people in the world, people who think they can and people who think they can't. Both are right, which one are you?" - DP

I simply cannot believe that six months has flown by so quickly.  It seems like yesterday that I applied to be a part of the Shaklee™ 180 blogger program.  I remember being shocked and thrilled that I had been accepted.

I started losing weight as a New Year's Resolution, it wasn't really my intention, I actually resolved to count my calorie intake for just one month.  (Setting realistic goals is the key to success) I naturally reduced my calorie intake.  After one month, I decided to do another and another until I started to skip a day here and there and finally I stopped all together, and my weight loss came to a halt.

Then the acceptance email came from Shaklee™ and my weight loss program was revitalized.  I have been, for the past six months, drinking a smoothie for breakfast and lunch, keeping track of my calories and most importantly exercising.  My goal with the program was to lose 40 pounds.

I am so thrilled that I am down over 65 pounds since January.  Here are a couple of shots of me over the past few years:


Shaklee™ has done so much for me.  The program not only helped me lose 48 pounds, I am working out almost every day, I have more confidence and a lot more energy.  Overall, I am a much happier person.

I have been doing interval training and gearing up for my first 5k in September.  I am so geeked.  I was amazed last month when I got this email:

Seriously, I traveled 57 miles?  I hate running, okay, I hated running. I used to tell people if you see me running you better run too, cause something is chasing me.  But now, no worries! You can run too if you want to, and considering my rate of falling due to cracks in the pavement, you might want to join me for a good laugh here and there:)

I cannot express my gratitude enough for this opportunity afforded to me by Shaklee™.  Being a part of the Shaklee™ blogger program has truly changed who I am, how I think and how I live.  I feel like I was a big fat caterpillar who is now a beautiful butterfly, and there is no going back.  Thank you!!!

    1. Thank you so much! I still have product for the rest of this month. Then we will see if we can afford to continue on the program. If not I will continue with shakes, but just not from Shaklee (so bummed if this is the case).

    1. Thank you Jessica. I tried that dress on and cried! I couldn't believe that I bought a size large and it fit. I am now mostly wearing xl and it is just something I cannot seem to wrap my head around!

    1. Thank you so much. I know 57 miles is a bit crazy! But if was doing a 4 mile circuit, so really I didn't go every day and it only took about an hour each time.

  12. I have a lot of weight to lose and struggle horribly with my weight and me being so short with no where to carry it but my tummy, this sounds like it might be very helpful for me to try!

    1. Miranda, the program makes it easier than just trying to do it yourself because the calories are easy to count.

      The key is to keep track and spend more calories than you eat:)I highly recommend Shaklee 180!!

      If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
