A month has passed since I first told you that I was starting on my 6 month journey with the Shaklee 180™ weight management program. I Started March 1 with the program, replacing 2 meals per day with smoothies or bars and eating one healthy meal usually at dinner. My snacking has returned to more healthful eating of fruits and vegetables instead of hectic snacking on junk food, calorie rich foods with really no nutritional benefit do not even enter into this house anymore.
Cutting out the sugary daily treats means that I dropped 6 pounds quickly in the first 2 weeks. The weight continued to drop over the last 2 weeks of the month as I upped my running and strength training for next week’s More FITNESS Half Marathon. I’m thrilled with the results in terms of the numbers, but I’ve also learnt that weight loss is definitely about more than just numbers and I talk about this in the video below.
Thanks to everyone who has thumbed up my Facebook and Instagram posts about some of my food choices over the past month and commented on blog posts. Your encouragement has been part of my success at the beginning of this journey. This is just the beginning, so stick around!
I think my greatest supporter has been Mr BAM. It helps that both of us are fairly similar in our pursuits for healthy living – we both run, we both wish we could pick up Bikram Yoga again and we both*try* to eat food that fuels and nourishes our bodies. He has fully embraced some of the changes I have made to the way we eat and some of the foods we buy, and for that I couldn’t be more thankful.

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