    Welcome! I'm sorry if I'm overstepping here, but I have to say it... I'm a personal trainer and I really hope that you will give a try to just using this site, tracking your calories and trying to make the best food choices you can and see if you get some results that way before you try relying on slimfast. Anything like that that is a "diet" will have to end at some point, and you put yourself at risk of gaining back weight that you lost and worked hard for. VERY best of luck on this journey!! :happy: :happy: :happy:

    Welcome Lacey!! I completely agree with Minnie! Don't worry about the slim fast right now. Counting your calories is the best way.. and it's working for me too :) .... At least then, you will feel like you are 'eating'. The best of luck!! Keep in touch around here!

    I totally agree! You won't need the Slim Fast. All you need is THIS site! It is sooooooo fantastic! You won't even feel like you're dieting, since you're really not, you're just "changing your lifestyle". You can still eat pretty much anything that you ate before. You'll just have to plan for it and maybe have smaller portions, and do alot of exercising.
    I have a thyroid problem, and have only been able to gain weight in the last few years, till I came here. I'm losing every single week, and still eating really well, and I'm getting lots of exercise too. I never felt better, and I know that YOU'LL feel the same way too!!!

    Welcome!

    I have had to learn that all of these "diets" out there do work as well as keeping an eye on your intake and exercise I like to call it a healthier lifestyle not a diet lol.. you won't need any other method if you stick with this site I have lost over 20lbs thus far. Good luck!
