I managed to stay on 2 SlimFast meals and one egg and bacon meal today. This is a miracle for me. I could taste the caramel in the SlimFast for ages after though. Wouldn't like to think what my bg was.

I started with the Asda ones. Then had the Tesco ones because they’re easier to get to than Asda. Grew bored of the limited flavours (my local Tesco only has chocolate and the nearest Asda only vanilla and occasionally strawberry) so decided to give the Exante shakes a go. They’re not as thick as the others but the chocolate mint and the cinnamon swirl are absolutely delicious.
It’s a fair amount of money to lay out in one go if you’re buying a lot of them so I bought a few chocolate and vanilla just to try - the logic being if they couldn’t get those flavours right then no chance of the rest being palatable.
Some on the Facebook forum say that the meals and the soups are awful and there appears to be an issue with the bars but the shakes are delicious.
I’ll dig out my referral code discount thingy...

Thanks for that. I will give it a whirl.

Good grief, I hates shopping online, it's fraught. Seems to have worked... I will have to stick to it now or I'll feel guilty about wasting money. Heh!

My pleasure :)

So far my favs are cinnamon swirl, chocolate and peanut butter, berries and cherries, chocolate mint, Bakewell tart. Not keen on the lemon cheesecake myself but maybe with a few chia seeds in and left to set it might be a decent pudding.

It was never my intention to celebrate every little milestone reached on the journey to the healthier me but this one I just can’t pass up.

Stood on the scales this morning and.... 14st 7lbs!!

I know it’s only a number but it feels significant somehow!

That's brilliant. Virtual pat on the back
