Shaklee 180™ 4 Month Update

This is a sponsored post as part of the Shaklee Corporation blogger program. I have received free products, online support and incentives for participating in the Shaklee Corporation blogger program. My opinions are my own.

People following the weight-loss portion of the Shaklee 180 program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

I'm now totally accustomed to eating my Shaklee 180  meal bars and shakes for two meals a day. It's been four months, a quarter of a year (!), and I think I will miss my Shaklee stuff when this program ends! I love - no, really - LOVE, having two of my meals pre-planned every single day. If only feeding the rest of my family were so simple!

I don't really know what is going on, because I haven't lost anymore weight on the program since month 1. I won't lie, this is pretty frustrating. As I've admitted in previous posts, I haven't exactly been a poster child for strictly sticking with the program this whole four months. I haven't been horrible with it, but there's always room for improvement. This past month, though, I've been much better. And I've even noticed a difference in how my clothes are fitting. I put on some capris the other day that I couldn't even pull up all the way last summer, and they fit comfortably. That is a more important gauge of progress for me than numbers on a scale. But...I would still really like to see those numbers go down! Why does my body hang onto weight like bacon grease in a frying pan????

Again, like last month, I think a lot of my issues have to do with snacking. Although I have been better, there are still certain times that I want nothing more than to curl up under a cozy blanket with a quart of ice cream or a bag of chocolate chips. Yes, I have gone there. Desperate times, people.

Because I've really been trying to live a healthier lifestyle, knowing that consuming lots of sugar and snacking all the time is not great for my health has been a pretty good motivator for me. But I have moments of weakness. Not buying junk food has been a great help. There are times when the junk makes its way in, though. Did I mention I have four kids? With grandparents who love to buy them foods that they didn't allow their own children to eat?

The other side of the health and fitness coin is exercise, which I'll be discussing in my monthly video update. Look for it later this evening!
