Slim Fast for 2 weeks

No, I haven't given up on losing weight. Been horribly busy with work and promoting Murder by Dewey Decimal, but that's no excuse. So I've decided to drink Slim Fast for two weeks.

I went on Slim Fast years ago and lost 40 pounds over six months. But eventually it made me sick -- probably because I didn't eat healthy that one meal a day that the Slim Fast plan allows and also sometimes didn't have that one meal, just drank another Slim Fast.

Anyway, I'm going to use Slim Fast to get my weight loss jump-started. I bought enough of it for two weeks and a bit more, and I started it today. The carbs in it are low enough to not mess up my diabetic diet plan, too. So I'm going to be drinking my breakfast and lunch the next 14 days. I'll let you know how it goes.

Do be careful, Tech, and don't forget to eat that meal! It might be a good jump start, but we want you healthy more than anything.

I'm with Trixie. We know you'll make healthy choices. Just a nudge of concern on our part.

Ditto. You probably should check with your doctor before you use Slim Fast, just to be sure it's safe for diabetics. I don't know whether it is or not, and I'm not making any assumptions one way or the other. I just like to be cautious when it comes to health. In any case, good luck to you, whatever you decide to do.
