Hello everyone! Long time, no log-in Haha! I've readjusted my goals (tickers included) and am working on taking off about 5 more pounds.

I just wanted to address one of the HNS topics from above. I ordered a bunch from Diet Direct when I was doing this on my own and ended up paying more per box even though I bought in bulk. I don't know about other centers, but my local center always sells the boxes (7 servings) at $10/box if you buy 10 or more at a time. So, I end up getting quite a better deal at the center than I do online. Go figure. You might check with your center to see if the same deals apply.

My weight has been holding very steady between 160 and 161. Each morning I think I'll be able to see the 150s, but no just yet. I have a feeling tomorrow will be my day. WHEN (not if) that day arrives, it will be the VERY FIRST TIME I recall seeing my weight that low. Since I started noting my weight in high school, I've always been somewhere between 160 and 205, though I was as high as 232 (unless you count pregnancy, where I got up to something like 275) and stayed mainly between 190 and 200 throughout adolescence and early adulthood.

And, fun story: I've been eating lunch at the same place each week for about a year. Two ladies in there thought that I was "the skinny sister of the pregnant girl" because I've lost so much weight. They honestly believed I was someone else!!!

Hi Ashley, congratulations!!! It took a long time for people to notice I lost weight when I was down 35 lbs 2 years ago. and some thought I was just wearing more fitted clothes ( which I was) .
I wear a lot of black and long tops to cover booty!
What I was buying at Diet Direct is the large container of pink lemonade and hot chocolate not the individual servings- pkg of 7.
I mainly used the Syntrax Nectar (Chocolate Truffle, Roadside Lemonade, Vanilla Bean Torte, etc. ) it's 32 oz for $34 at Vitacost. 3/4 scoop is 75 cal., 1 scoop is 100 cal, 23 G protein, 0 fat, 0 sugar, 40 mg sodium, 50 mg potassium. I drank 4 HNSs a day using these and I did buy some of the puddings in individual pkgs but could never get them to gel. I also bought some of the protein soups and snacks from Diet Direct. The only soup I liked was the chicken noodle.
I like the powder because I could add ice and make it a larger serving. But each to their own and if the individual servings work better and get the weight off, it's worth it!
We are saving money not eating out as much and not buying junk.
My DH though is rebelling and bought 2 boxes of Klondike bars and just ate three. He bought them home tonight and said, oh can you have these? Am I justified by shooting him?
I had a big salad and grilled Mahi tonight and trying not to think about his stupid ice cream

Default Hello....

Greetings...
Today is my 2nd day on the Green Metaslim diet, 7th day overall.

Went today for my weighin... currently down 5 lbs (per their scale - 10:30 am weigh in --- I was down 6.5 per my scale first thing this morning. I am going to browse the menus, and hope to find something I can make and eat on for a few days. It is all very overwhelming.

I was curious for those that have been on the program for a while, or have done it and are returning, what you rate loss was. I know the center says 3 lbs per week... but I'm curious to what it is in reality.

Thanks! MP (Athtrnr)

Hey Athtrnr
I have been on green meta slim menu for 3 weeks now and loose average of 2.5 pounds per week. If you want a support buddy or share recipes with each other, you can always email me at fitness.ahuazz at the rate gmail dot come.
Since we both are on the same menu, it will help both of us and keep us motivated
Good luck

It depends on person.. I was a very slow loser.. Many weeks I did not lose a pound, maybe .2 pounds or .5 pounds, but it all came off eventually and I made it to maintenance.. I have a friend that lost anywhere from 1-3 pounds at the beginning but she had more weight to lose than I did...
