11.5 Inches & 4 Pounds Lost So Far at Month Two of #Shaklee180!!

11.5 Inches & 4 Pounds Lost So Far at Month Two of #Shaklee180!!

I can’t believe it’s already been two months with the Shaklee180 blogger program!  I am so excited to share my results this month with you!  I had a pretty successful month – I found my groove, and now eating well is a snap!

I’m happy to say I’m at 4 pounds lost so far on the program!!  Even better – thanks to the Leucine, I know I’m not losing muscle – it’s all fat!

One of the techniques I used this month that kick-started my weight loss was adding plain Greek yogurt to my Shaklee shakes!  The live, active cultures in the yogurt are good for digestion, and the added protein helps keep me full in-between meals!

I also added spinach to my shakes after getting a few recommendations from other Shaklee bloggers, and I was pleasantly surprised at how great the shakes still tasted!  I was never hungry this month, and I successfully lost both weight and inches!

Here are my results:

Pounds lost this month (& in total): 4

Inches lost this month:

Bust: 1.5 inches down (3.5 in total!)

Waist: 3 inches down (4 in total!)

Hips: 1.5 inches down (2.5 in total!)

Thighs: .5 inches down (1 in total!)

Arms: .5 inches down (.5 in total!)

In total, I lost 7 inches this month, and 11.5 inches in total!!  That’s a lot of inches!!  😀

I've lost 11.5 inches in two months with Shaklee 180!!

Hooray!  Thanks, Shaklee 180, for the terrific shakes and meal bars, and thanks, fellow Shaklee bloggers, for the awesome support!!

#Shaklee180 – One Month In – My Progress So Far!

#Shaklee180 – One Month In – My Progress So Far!

I’m so excited to be one month into the Shaklee 180 Blogger Program!  Here’s how I’m doing!

This month has been a learning experience for me – I’ve been eating Shaklee180 products for breakfast and lunch, but I haven’t been distributing my calories evenly throughout the day.  Because I haven’t been eating enough in the morning or afternoon, I get too hungry to wait for dinner, and end up eating whatever I can find in the afternoon.

Through trial and error, I’ve learned that distributing my calories during the day helps keep me satisfied, so next month, I plan to incorporate more vegetables and protein with lunch to keep my body satisfied until dinner time!

When I weighed myself yesterday, I expected the scale to be unkind – but I was pleasantly surprised!  Even though I wasn’t totally faithful to the program, I didn’t gain any weight!  But that’s not the best news!  It turns out that even though I stayed the same weight on the scale, my clothing fits better!  When I measured myself with the measuring tape, I found that I had lost a few inches!!

Here’s where I started:

3/1/13

Bust: 47

Waist: 44

Hips: 52

Arms: 15.5

Thigh: 28

And here are my measurements one month later!  Even though I cheated on the program, I still lost inches!

4/1/13

Bust: 45 – 2 inches down!

Waist: 43 – 1 inch down!

Hips: 51 – 1 inch down!

Arms: 15.5 – no change

Thigh: 27.5 – 1/2 inch down!

Imagine how much I could lose if I were faithful to the program!  I am pumped to find out!!  Check in next month to see how much I lose when I don’t cheat!!  🙂

3 Holiday Parties in 3 Days = 4 Gained Pounds & A Sick Stomach

3 cookie parties in a row... ugh

Last weekend was a whirlwind of friends, conversation, and fun!  I attended three different holiday parties – two of which were cookie exchange parties – and for one weekend, I shelved my low-carb eating plan and went on a sugar pig-out, giving myself permission to eat anything and try everything I wanted to.

I can say now for certain that my body has changed since I began limiting my sugar intake.  After the first cookie party, I didn’t feel too differently, but after the second, I started feeling lightheaded and dizzy.  After the third (and last, thank goodness), I felt positively sick.  My body isn’t used to handling these high levels of sugar anymore, and of course, it was all stored as body fat, hence the 4 pound weight gain.

So, yesterday was a protein day, and I’m happy to report that I feel much better, and have already lost 2 of the pounds I gained over the weekend.  I think overdoing it last weekend will help me not to go crazy on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, and maybe I can even lose a little bit before the end of the year!

What is your plan to not overdo it over the holidays?  Has it been working out for you?
