Getting Beach Body Ready With Shaklee 180™ #Shaklee180

If you haven’t heard, I am proud to be one of 90 Shaklee 180™  bloggers for the next several months. I found out in February and officially started the program on March 1. As someone who lives 5 minutes from the beach I spend quite a lot of time there during the warm months. Growing up I used to feel confident in my bikinis, that all changed after kids (and being a food lover). I admit, I am by no means overweight (according to my height) but I am bigger than I want to be. Until my last child I had always donned a bikini and not worried about what others thought. That was before I got soft and pudgy, before I weighed 18 pounds more than my body is used to.

I always weighed around the 100-105 range and for my body frame type, it is what worked. I wasn’t too skinny, I was slim, not sickly, and felt comfortable in my clothes. With my last child weight stuck around in places I didn’t want it to…the cringe worthy belly area…

Shaklee Start Photo

Holy smokes…I just posted a photo of my problem area…on my blog. I try to take photos from the chest up, or have someone or something in front of my belly in photos because I am so uncomfortable. It’s the area I struggle with the most. As I continue on my Shaklee journey the next 5 months and some odd days I am excited to see the results. But you, friends, will have to wait until the end to see the difference.

At the start of the program my stats were:

  • 123 pounds
  • Bust: 35.5 inches
  • Waist: 35.5 inches
  • Hips: 37.5 inches (this includes those love handles and belly…the problem area..gah)
  • Arms: 9 inches (yes I have teeny arms, maybe I can make them bigger with some muscle LOL)

The program consists of trading out some meals with Shaklee 180 products:

It was tough at first finding a way to get the shakes to taste how I wanted them too, but I finally got them tasting just right, and every morning starts with one of them. So, get ready for my Shaklee 180 journey. I will have another post (vlog style) on 3/31 to update you on my numbers after a month of the program and share my favorite shake mixture, you know you want to check back for that!

Who’s ready to get beach body ready?? ME!!

    I am so excited to see how this program works for you Toni!!! I have gained about 15 pounds over the past year and a hhalf and it seems to have all gone to my belly area. It never really bothered me until this year when I have had a REALLY hard time squeezing into my jeans. Seeing your post has inspired me to get my butt moving and lose some of this weight. Thanks! I can’t wait to see your progress.

    Ok, i’m totally going to comment on your dolphin tattoo. I so wanted one in the same area. Maybe once I lose weight and know for sure that I’m done having kids, I will do it.

    I would need about $150k in plastic surgery before I’d be bikini-ready, and I’d need to step into a time machine and lost 20 years! haha
