Let me start by saying I am totally not that fat girl. The one who loves every inch of her love handles and probably could stand to wear a size bigger. Nope … I am the opposite. I’ve always been a curvy girl and I do LOVE my curves BUT I’ve ALWAYS been weight conscious. The smallest I have ever been was a size 10 and I looked like I had THE BUG. You know that big bug that Magic Johnson is filled of but it ain’t so magical.
Somewhere in between year 25 and 35 the pounds have found me and won’t seem to leave. I’ve tried every diet imaginable and I probably should be exercising now instead of blogging but hey, you readers come first right!
So when I got a call from my bloggerista Christen from DivasAndDorks.com about her new Slim Fast plan I HAD to jump on that wagon again. Her and I decided what a perfect time to get fit being that New York Fashion Week is coming up. I totally need to be able to fit in some cute
short dresses and jumpsuits for the fall. I had a consultation with Dr. Ali, a nutritionist from Slim Fast, and she asked me about my schedule, my eating pattern, what I did all day .. which is SIT and SNACK! After about 10 questions she came up with a diet and created a Slim Fast plan that will help me shed pounds from now until NYFW.
The meal plan (paired with exercise) includes Slim Fast supplement shakes, snack bars and low calorie meals. For example, as part of the Slim Fast 3-2-1 plan – I enjoy 3 snacks, 2 replacement meal shakes and 1 low calorie meal. I am not a breakfast gal SO I have my Shake in the AM followed by tons of fruits and veggies in between and a big lunch. I have another shake for dinner and if I am EXTRA greedy I’ll have another snack bar before bed. I told Dr Ali that I loved chocolate and that’s ALL she sent, LOL. I totally LOVE the Chocolate Mint bars = heaven sent!
My ultimate goal is to free myself of a small child – 60lbs! WHOA that hurt even saying it BUT hey… I know I have you guys to help me along right 🙂
