Beginning Month 2 on Shaklee 180™

Pin It
So this is the beginning of my second month as a Shaklee 180™ blogger. Time for a real update, right? Let's jump right in:

Here are my original numbers from Day 1:

Weight: 170lbs
Bust: 41"
Waist: 36"
Hips: 43"
Arms: left: 14"
           right: 14"

And here are my numbers today: 

Weight: 162
Bust: 38"
Waist: 35"
Hips: 41"
Arms: left: 13.5"
          right: 13.5"

To recap - that means I'm down 8lbs and 7". My overall BMI has gone from 29.2 to 27.8. Not bad for just one month, I think. 

I'll be honest, though. I've sort of been avoiding this post. These past couple weeks have been hard on me (for reasons unrelated to my weight-loss). That penchant for emotional eating I was telling you about in my first post about Shaklee? We were most certainly butting heads. I'm fortunate enough to say that two weeks of emotional eating didn't make me gain any weight, but it certainly didn't help me lose any.

I think the fact that I'm keeping track of my calories kept me from really going overboard. A few days of being "Over Budget" even by a little got me reassessing what I was doing. There is a HUGE reason I wanted to be part of this program. I want to be making healthy choices and be a healthy exanple for these guys: 

And if I can accomplish my goals, making healthy choices that include cutting back on the emotional eating, maybe someone reading this will feel inspired to make some healthy changes too.

What health related goals would you like to achieve? What inspires you?

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

  1. It sounds like you're doing great. Keep it up! I'm terrible when it comes to eating healthy and working out. I've been trying to spend my lunch breaks every day walking. Better than nothing, right? lol
    ps- your kids are adorable!

    1. Thank you - for your encouragement AND for complimenting my kids!

      I weighed myself again this morning (first time in almost a week), and the scale is ever so slowly starting to move down again. I'm definitely grateful to be involved in a program right because it really does help me keep on track with my eating and exercise. Losing weight is hard!
