Slim Fast 14-Day Challenge Results

Earlier this month I shared with you that I was going to take the Slim Fast 14-Day Challenge.  As I mentioned my husband and I have had 5 children in a span of 8 years with our 5th baby 9  months ago. Basically having children every 2 years.  Being so close together it’s not very much time to lose the pregnancy weight before getting pregnant again!  Not only is the time span a short amount of time between each of our children but prior to getting pregnant with our 1st baby I had lost a bunch of weight and unfortunately I have not been able to get my figure back since then! I have struggled with fad diets. I lose interest or get bored with them because in my mind I am looking for instant results which are not realistic! 


I had received Slim Fast products to enjoy in place of a meal during the day.  I was an uncertain if I would enjoy the Slim Fast products I was sent but I must say they were actually very good.  One of the products was the shakes. I would replace my lunch with one of these shakes. They were creamy and smooth – I couldn’t believe how good they were!

These delicious shakes would hold me over for a few hours and then I would have one of the Slim Fast  Protein Meal Bars or a Slim Fast Snack Bar.  These were my favorite. They definitely satisfied my sweet tooth which is my biggest problem.  After eating one of these bars I would then try to hold out until dinner time.

They say if you loose weight too fast it’s unhealthy.  I was able to lose a few pounds during this challenge. Overall I was pleased with these products and the results.  Walgreens offers several variety of Slim Fast  flavors. You could mix it up, maybe try a different one each day of your Slim Fast challenge!  When will you start your Slim Fast Challenge?

    My mom Had five kids in ten years so I know how busy you must be! I like Slimfast products because they are very versatile and tasty. I prefer the snack bars though.

  3. I like Slim Fast and their variety of flavors

  4. We are kindred spirits….I had 5 children in 7 years. The first 3 were 12 months apart….and I too cannot get rid of all the weight I have gained. They are all grown now and I am the proud grandma of 8 grandchildren….so I still have little ones all over my house. I think I might just try Slimfast as nothing else seems to work. There is a Walgreens in my neighborhood…..I usually skip breakfast but this might be a good thing to try since by lunch time I am starving. Thanks for the boost.

  5. I’ve heard great results from Slim Fast. When I was younger I even did this a time or two. Good luck!

  6. I am glad it worked well for you. I use to use Slimfast but it has been a long time! My youngest is 6 and I still haven’t lost the weight.

  7. It is great that they have products that can help make weight loss easier! Sounds like you have a good system going!

    (And I love your drinking glasses! I have a very similar version that I bought from Mexico!)

  8. I have always loved Slim Fast and think the shakes do taste great! Congrats on your weight loss!!

  9. A while back I had to have sinus surgery and for about 2 weeks after I had trouble breathing out of my nose so I could only breathe out of my mouth. I couldn’t eat because I felt like I couldn’t breathe. So since I could only drink, I wanted something healthy so I only drank Slim Fast for 2 weeks. I lost so much weight people thought that I had weight loss surgery instead of sinus surgery.

  10. I remember really loving their strawberry flavored drinks years ago. I haven’t tried their snack but I have heard great things! Good luck on your weight loss journey!

  11. I’m glad that you found something that you like. I’ve never been into the shakes or protein bars myself, but I know some people really enjoy them. I honestly am just trying my hardest to buy and learn how to prepare great food. If I love the food, I know I wont want to turn back. 🙂

  12. I’ve just been talking to my cousin about how much food we ate this weekend and how we need to lose some weight! Wow! This is a nice slap of confidence and motivation! Thanks!

  13. I have 4 kids and even having them 4 years apart at first then my last 8 years after the last I’m still having a difficult time losing the weight. I think this is what I need. Anything that will give me a boost.

  14. I used to drink SlimFast in my 20s, but they always tasted so good that I drank too many 🙂 haha…

  15. I love the Slim Fast shakes! They are a great way to stay on track when you are short on time!

  16. I am glad you are enjoying it! I need someone to do sit ups for me. LOL

  17. I had no idea that they expanded into bars. Can’t wait to try them.

  18. Glad the shakes are yummy! I’ve been doing my best to get to the gym a few times a week! Sometimes it can be really tough though – I’ve got a little guy who is 3 months old.

  19. i’ve been thinking about trying slim fast. need to do something!

  20. I never have tried Slim Fast. My grandma used to drink them all the time! Glad you are happy with your results.

  21. I love the bars, always take them with me to work! I lost a lot of weight and slim fast has helped me maintain it!

  22. Thanks for posting your results, I’ve been curious about this 2 week program.

  23. It’s a great way to kick off a change in eating styles. I’m glad it worked for you!

  24. I need to pick some more of those bars. They were pretty good last time I had them.

  25. Congrats on your weight loss! Slim Fast taste really good!

  26. Congrats on your loss and I look forward to seeing you at the party tonight!

  27. Of course I have heard of this plan from SlimFast but did not know anyone who had done it. It was good of you to share your experiences with your readers.

  28. I’ve heard from Slim Fast but but I’ve never tried them before. I need to lose some weight so I’ll check them out. Thanks for sharing.

  29. I never tried Slim Fast. I’ll have to check it out.

  30. That’s a lot of kids!! Wow. I didn’t even know Slimfast had that many products. I always associate the brand with the drink. Now I want to buy some protein bars to try them. Great information here and good luck on this journey!

  31. I’ve been really curious about this plan, thanks for sharing!
