Slim Fast and Weight Loss

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Slim-Fast for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey Neighbors!

As most of you know I was diagnosed with diabetes in late May.  I had severe back pain, and when they took me to the ER where after they lowered the pain some, I was told I had a bulging disc and diabetes.  They started me on 2 medications for diabetes along with a pain killer and muscle relaxer.  I was told to count my carbs.  I was allowed 60 carbs per meal.  Well, that seemed like alot to me, so I started cutting back and soon was off all medications.  Yeah!  After about 4 weeks I started walking on the treadmill 3 days a week. Very slow at first!

After a couple of weeks, I noticed that I was able to do a little more on the treadmill, and I was feeling better.  In 6 months, I lost 40-45 lbs. I began to feel better, and noticed my clothing getting looser.  Super!  I am still counting carbs, and working on the treadmill 3 days a week.  Of course I have increased my time and speed.  I now walk 40 minutes 3 days a week, and walk 2 miles with a 5 minute cool down.

When I was offered a chance to try Slim-Fast I was definitely interested, I just needed to check the carbs.  Was I surprised!  One Slim Fast Shake, the Creamy Chocolate is only 4 carbs per shake.  I didn't realize that at first, and I got the Rich Chocolate Royale (doesn't have a strong diet taste, and my husband LOVES chocolate).  So, I will probably let my husband drink the rest of these, and I will have to pick up a different pack. 

Anyway, with the new Slim Fast 3, 2, 1 program, you can work on loosing that weight for the holidays, or special event.  With this program you choose 3 nourishing snacks a day, like the Slim Fast 100 calorie snack bars.  Next replace 2 meals a day with 2 Slim Fast Shakes or Bars.  Last, you have one balanced meal approx. 500 calories.

You can find Slim-Fast at your local Wal-Mart, Target, Kroger, etc., usually in the pharmacy section.  You can use this plan to help from gaining those extra holiday pounds that seem to plaque everyone this time of year.  Plan so you have your shakes during the day, and then enjoy your family meals together in moderation.  Personally, I am still trying to shed a few more pounds, and I hope Slim Fast can help with this.  Be sure to like Slim Fast on Facebook, and stay up to date on what they have going on.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
