My mother had started on Celebrity Slim, said it tasted good and that I should give it a go. My goal was originally to lose as much as I can to try and get healthy.
My motivation was finally having enough of feeling like a waste of a life and wanting to really do something about it.
The continued weight loss was a great motivation in itself and the days where I struggled I did things like watch Rocky Balboa's inspirational speech to his son, which goes like this:
"Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!
Now if you know what you're worth then go out and get what you're worth. But ya gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain't where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain't you! You're better than that!"
Unlike other shakes I've had these actually tasted good, which made it much easier to stick to.
Obviously I've had great success with it. I love it! The online forums on the Celebrity Slim website were a great place for tips from others dieters and to get extra motivation.
What I liked most was the taste and the ease of it, not a lot of restrictions to try & remember.
My favourite flavours are the Vanilla and the Chocolate shakes.
Along with the shakes I tried to change my lifestyle as much as possible.
I started up at the gym, started walking my dog more, stopped drinking alcohol etc.
To maintain it now I won’t eat junk food.
Still won’t drink, eat plenty of fruit & veg and get in as much exercise as I can.
Losing weight makes me feel like a new person.
It's actually hard to describe since I've never really felt like this before, much more confident in everything I do. Clothes shopping is now a great fun time out! :D
I hope my story will inspire others.
Especially in showing other guys that this works (usually this kind of thing is marketed much more to women than men).
I'm just an average, run of the mill kind of guy.
If I was able to do it there really is no reason why other people can't do it as well.
My priorities now are to maintain my new weight.
