Shaklee 180™ - my weight loss program begins


So here I am, age 39.5 and ready to lose all this extra weight.  I have always been a bigger girl, but after three kids, it is beyond acceptable.  I applied to become a Shaklee 180 blogger and I am so thrilled that I have been accepted. For the next 6 months I will be using their products (for FREE) and sharing my experience and weight loss with you. My long term goal is to eventually be a size 8.  Right now, I'm a 22. I am hoping that in 6 months time I will be able to lose 40 pounds (1.5 pounds per week).


I started the new year with a resolution to count my calories for just one month.  That experience has shown me how much more I was eating.  I have seriously cut down my calorie intake and since January 1st I have already lost 18 pounds and moved from a 24 to a 22.

I'm doing this for so many reasons, but most of all for me.  I want to feel healthy and confident.  Right now I'm so ashamed of any images of me.  Every time I look at a picture of the current me I think, "wow, I'm fat."  I can't wait to see a picture of me and LOVE the way I look.

So today it begins.

This is my first months kit:



In the kit I received: 
Vanilla Smoothee Mix, Strawberry Smoothee Mix and Chocolate Smoothee Mix
Blueberry & Almond Crisp Meal-in-a-Bar
Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Meal-in-a-Bar
Snack Bar assortment pack
Pomegranate Energizing Tea
Metabolic Boost
Catalog
Quick Start guide


Looking at the guide, every day I will be eating:
A shake and serving of fruit for breakfast
A shake or a meal bar for lunch
A healthy dinner
I am allowed 1 to 2 healthy snacks a day
A Metabolic Boost Tablet is taken at each meal.
