Slim Fast Women of Wow $50 Am-Ex Giveaway #vowtowow

I have been on the Slim Fast 3-2-1 plan for 3 weeks now and I feel incredible. In this time I have cut back on my soda intake and increased my water intake. I have changed my eating habits and relied less on prepackaged foods. And best of all, I have lost about 8 pounds. I have more energy and overall I feel better.

In a typical day, I have a 200 calorie shake for breakfast in the morning. I am allowed a 100 calorie snack bar before lunch but I have been saving that for after dinner as it seems I am most hungry, or the desire to eat is greater at night.

For lunch I enjoy another 200 calorie shake with a 100 calorie snack bar to hold me over till dinner.

Dinner is usually around 400 calories and then I can have 2 more 100 calorie snack bars and I save myself 100 calories for a daily glass of soda. Hey, old habits die hard.

This leaves me at around 1200 calories in a day and also allows me enough flexibility to add in another small snack of raw veggies and hummus or a piece of fruit if I am really hungry.

Slim Fast has also given me the opportunity to give away some great prizes over the course of my journey. You too can join me and Vow to Wow with Slim Fast.
