3•2•1 Slim - Fast!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I haven't really had a problem with my weight since freshman year in college.  They say now that the 'Freshman 15' is a myth, but I think I must've gained at least the 15 my freshman year, if not more.  Thankfully I was aware of my weight gain and determined to take care of that before it got totally out of hand.  I swam and played basketball every day all summer, and I ate better.  Between the physical activity and better eating habits, I lost most of the weight I'd gained by the time my 2nd year of college started.   Since then I've tried to stay active and eat right.
When Jeffrey and I first got married and I worked in a department store, I lost about 10 pounds right away because I was on my feet and moving all day long - from the front of the store to the back, up and down the stairs, etc.  I didn't need to go to the gym.  I got my exercise at work!  So you're probably wondering why I ever tried Slim-Fast, aren't you?  Well, first of all I got a good deal - sale, coupon, something like that - and I thought it sounded good.  So I tried it, and I liked it. What I liked about it was that, if I had a Slim-Fast shake for breakfast, I wasn't starving before break time.  It really did keep me feeling full and satisfied for hours - better than a regular breakfast.
I'm sure that's a big reason Slim-Fast helps people who are trying to slim down.  Slim-Fast shakes provide up to four hours of hunger control and offer 10 grams of protein, five grams of fiber and 24 essential vitamins and minerals, making it easier to stick to a plan and achieve weight loss goals.  The Slim-Fast 3•2•1 Plan promises quick results when followed correctly.  It's a great way to lose weight and look fabulous for that special upcoming occasion - or just to get a start on the rest of your life with a slimmer, healthier you.  The Plan consists of 3 nourishing snacks, 2 Slim-Fast shakes or meal bars, and 1 500-calorie balanced meal per day.  When you start a Plan, you can also register on the Slim-Fast site and use all of the great features of the site - chart your progress, personalize a meal plan, get recipes, and connect with others for inspiration and support.
Besides the shake mixes that I tried, Slim-Fast has recently introduced the richest, creamiest, best-tasting shakes ever in nice convenient bottles designed to go anywhere, along with their meal bars and snack bars - all in delicious sounding flavors.  There is a lot of chocolate!  But the Fruit & Yogurt Trail Mix Meal Bar looks really good to me - rolled oats, roasted almonds and cranberries - yum!
