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
