#SlimFastChallenge - Week 1 Update

I've now completed a week of doing the #SlimFastChallenge and I have to say, it hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. 

My meal routine seemed to consist of a milkshake for breakfast, a small banana or handful of grapes for a mid-morning snack, a meal replacement bar for lunch, a pack of the 'crisp' type snacks for a snack, dinner then one of the chocolatey snacks in the evening. 

The flavours of the Slim Fast products are amazing (I will write about them in more depth next week). The chocolate ones do feel like you're indulging but have no reason to feel guilty. It's really easy to stick to. I don't feel hungry and it doesn't feel like a diet, as such.

The aim is to have a healthy, balanced dinner each evening. This week consisted of bangers & mash (yes, with gravy!), a chicken burrito but minus the wrap, burgers and salad, salmon with baked potato and veg, and soup with wheaten bread. All meat was cooked in the George Foreman so most of the fat was removed. I did feel like I indulged a little at dinner time!

I started a week ago weighing 11st exactly. I now weigh 10st 8.5lbs. This is an amazing loss, I feel. I'm really excited to crack on with the rest of the week and see what my final weigh-in shows!

(Disclaimer: I received 2 weeks worth of Slim Fast products to embark on the #SlimFastChallenge. All thoughts and opinions are my own.)
