Somebody, anybody pinch me…on second thought please don’t because you’ll be pinching my extra pounds. I’d never had any issues with my weight, until I had children. I’m not using that as an excuse, just providing a little background. Since my daughter was born a little over four years ago, my weight has been an issue. That’s why I’m incredibly excited to announce I was chosen to participate in the Shaklee 180 program!!!
They received over 400 applications and only 90 were chosen! When I found out, I started dancing around the house singing “I’m gonna lose it, lose it!” to the same tune as “I Like to Move It” the theme song from Madagascar 3. I’m so ready for my pre-baby clothes to fit again and to be excited about going out on “girls night.” At the same time I’m also apprehensive, because along my journey I’ll be sharing photos and videos with you of my very unattractive body! Consider this your first and only warning!
I’m also hopeful! Hopeful that this journey is a learning experience, a chance to make new friends, to make healthy lifestyle changes, and maybe be an inspiration to others. The journey lasts 180 days, 90 days to lose weight and 90 days to learn how to keep it off! You can learn more about Shaklee 180 on their Facebook page.
Why did I want to participate? Besides the fact that I want to lose weight, I also want to feel better about my body. I like that Shaklee is the number one natural nutrition company in the U.S, and that the program has proved to be effective for many. My high school reunion is in August and I’m terrified of going at my current weight, which is 20+ pounds over what I weighed in high school.
With this opportunity, Shaklee is going to provide me with the products and tools to be successful, and I’m hoping that you’ll help me stay accountable. This will be my first experience with a structured weight loss program and with your help, I’m determined to “lose it, lose it.” Be sure to follow our journey on twitter using the hashtag #Shaklee180
