Cleanse Results and thoughts

Hi everyone!

Turns out this cleanse I was on was pretty painless, and I lost 2.6 pounds just doing that and walking for 30 minutes a day.  I was never hungry, felt good and all sorts of good stuff.

I still weigh 272.8 according to the gym scale. Considering I had my cheat meal and didn't exercise over the weekend (as well as aunt flo on her way) not too bad.

Ok, you guys may not agree with me on this- but I am going to be starting doing the slim fast diet in combination with my TAM.  I know that there are a lot of people who disagree with meal replacement as a way to lose weight, but for me, I don't think I will suffer any ill effects from it, and if I do, I will make the changes necessary to stop them from happening.  (Such as eating more food, etc.)

For those of you who do not know what the Slim Fast diet is, it is a diet plan in which you drink a meal replacement shake for breakfast, one for lunch, and a healthy dinner.  Snacks in between are also allowed if you feel you need it. I want to keep doing this kind of diet mainly because of my lifestyle- not home often these days (especially on weekdays), and the main choices here at school are junk, junk with a side of junk, and more junk. I also want to continue shrinking my stomach so that I can eat smaller portions and feel fuller. With slim fast I'm able to take my shakes with me on the go, without worrying about overeating or eating something way too unhealthy. 

That said, I will still give myself a cheat meal, when I eat whatever I want for that one meal. Everyone deserves an indulgence here and there.

On the subject of exercise- I took a (faster this time!) 30 minute walk and even did some TA muscular structure moves that I remember off the top of my head. Doing it in front of a mirror makes a huge difference! I was relieved to see that the majority of what I was doing was right anyway.  And yes, a couple people were staring at me and yeah, I was a bit uncomfortable but quickly got over it and just finished it all.


  1. Roxanne-so happy to hear you are maintaing your weight loss, although I dont think slim fast is the right route. It is FILLED with processed ingridients and the ingredient list is a mile long. Your body will have difficulty digesting this and weight loss will not happen as quickly, than if you were eating clean. Perhaps instead of slim fast, you should try Dr. Junger's clean cleanse (where you replace 2 meals with healthy rice protein or a dairy free protein). I really think you should nourish your body with healthy ingredients and slim fast is definitely not healthy!!

  2. Hey Roxy! I came across your website from a post on Tracy Anderson's website. I live in Indiana, and completely agree that TAM should find it's way to Chicago! I wanted to encourage on your health and weight loss journey. I've spent the last five years balancing my hormones and rebuidling after adrenal fatigue. I see a doc in Chicago that has helped a ton. But thru all the health stuff, I gained 40 lbs and was still having trouble dropping any weight. In October, my husband and I were introduced to a line of supplements.....that we love! Long story short, since the end of October, we have lost a combined total of 65 lbs! We feel fantastic and have tons of energy too!! I'd love to tell you about it so you can check it out. You can contact me directly at The road to health/weight loss can be hard sometimes......I think any help we can give eachother...... :) Take Care!
