Let me tell y’all: Today was a great week. I finally hit one of these goals that SO many people I know find very trying to achieve: I’m now under 200 pounds, and since tracking my weight loss last year, I have lost 52 pounds!
I want to say it has been super-easy, and considering the circumstances, it has – but it’s a lot of work to control your cravings when you develop an addiction to tasty food. I truly advocate counting calories as the way to do it – and there are so many mobile tools that allow you to these days. But one of the greatest ways to help count calories AND curb your hunger is through IdealShape’s amazing line of products.
I already told you about the IdealShake Meal Replacement Shake a few months ago, and I’m happy to say I still purchase this product! But in the past month I’ve been trying out a new product called IdealBoost Raspberry Citrus.
It’s a powder, similar to any sugar-free drink mix, that you add to water. Other than the drink mix being colorless, the only difference from those drink mixes is that in addition to being a great substitute for soda or juice, it also has Slendesta, a protein made from potatoes that – I swear – really is filling!
What I love about it is that it also has caffeine to keep your energy up. I have a lot of problems getting up and going in the morning, and I can say that IdealBoost has really helped a lot! I enjoy an IdealBoost with an IdealShake or other light breakfast in the morning, and it usually tides me over until a mid-morning snack (The box says it will curb hunger for four hours; I did not find this to be the case.)
In addition to the Raspberry Citrus, they also have IdealBoost Pineapple Strawberry! I’m very eager to try this flavor!
Weight loss is not easy. I believe I was close to 280 at my heaviest. And now, at 199.8, I feel a lot more confident. I know I still have a way to go and it will only get more difficult, but with products like those from IdealShape, I know that I can reach my goals, and hopefully prevent continuing a family history of heart disease, diabetes and kidney failure. Because above all, health is the most important thing here.
