I’ve been really struggling with writing this update. Mainly because I’ve been struggling with the Shaklee 180 program. While I have lost a few pounds, I haven’t had the results that some of my fellow program participants have had – and it’s frustrating. The hardest part about writing this is that I don’t want to discourage anyone else from going ahead and giving Shaklee 180 a try because I still do believe it really is a great program.
Right about now, you are probably wondering how I can say it is a great program when I’m not getting the results I was hoping for right? Here’s why I still believe that Shaklee 180 is a good program and might still work for you:
Many of the bloggers who I started the program with back in March have had phenomenal results. (I’m talking life-changing results here!!)
Shaklee is a great brand – I’ve loved all of their products since I was introduced to them about a year ago and will continue to purchase their cleaning products (LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!) and supplements long after the Shaklee 180 program is over.
The quality of the Shaklee 180 smoothies and bars is the best out there. We are talking wholesome, natural, and non-GMO ingredients. That means a lot to me and is pretty hard to find these days.
The Shaklee 180 program comes with a lot of built in support – something that is important for success.
So, with all of that being said, why do I think this program is not the best match for me? I think I am struggling with the meal replacement aspect of the program. For whatever reason, I am someone who really likes sitting down and having a meal. Since I am making a meal for the rest of my family, I wind up feeling cheated if I do all that and don’t get to enjoy it myself. Which results in me eating both the meal replacement AND some of the meal – not really the best way to lose weight. Not that I’m saying there is anything wrong with this program model – in fact, I know many people who prefer it. But I’m just not sure it is the best match for me.
