If weight loss is your goal in 2015, I truly believe you have come to the right place.
Shaklee 180 is not your "diet" typical program. When I signed up with Shaklee in 2012, I was adamant that I was NOT going to sell people weight loss products. My mentality was that the proper way to manage your diet was with eating right and exercise--no excuses! I was NOT partaking in this piece of the business. (Insert kicking and screaming). I was just going to focus on cleaning products and vitamins and go on my merry way. (Insert more kicking and screaming).
Well the summer of 2013 made me change my mind for many reasons.
I had recently started staying home with our nine month old son. After nine years at my corporate job, this was a whole new world for me. I had no idea what life would be like as a stay at home mom. By this time post-baby, I had lost a good portion of the 50 pounds I had gained when I was pregnant but I still had a ways to go. I had started my stay at home journey with big plans to run or walk daily. Then I found out I was pregnant. I figured there was no point in getting fit at that point so I was just going to coast through the summer. But then we miscarried. By fall of 2013, I was quite unhappy with my body so I decided to take the Shaklee 180 program seriously. I needed a major pick me up. I didn't feel I needed to lose a ton of weight so I didn't join with a Turnaround kit but rather started with the Lean and Healthy kit. (More on the kit differences below). I used the tracker and online tools to document my food intake, monitor my exercise, and learn new recipes. After 90 days, I had lost 15 pounds and was in a size I hadn't seen since high school. But it wasn't about the weight lost but how my body changed, how energetic and healthy I felt, and how I did it by eating whole, real foods with Shaklee's support. I also asked others to join me. Together we made some amazing changes. Read Beth's story and Emily's story too.
So what changed my mind??
First of all, actually "doing the program" made me change my mind. I've heard several stories about how the program maybe didn't work but then the person says they did their own version of it rather than following the directions. Please follow the directions for best results! For me, taking the time to understand the program was what I really needed. I understood that this was a program that wanted to teach you how to eat real food, how to incorporate movement into your life, and how to maintain that lifestyle. It allowed you to eat what you wanted, you could eventually abandon the dreaded calorie tracking, you could LIVE. You learn what fuels your body. You learn to be energized. You learn to be healthy.
Why are there two kit options?
The whole program is designed for you to spend 90 days with the Turnaround kit and then transition over to the Lean and Healthy kit for another 90 days. The Turnaround kit is designed where the majority of your food intake is Shaklee products. This is typically where the biggest transformations happen. The Lean and Healthy kit is only one Shaklee shake a day. The rest of your meals are up to you! Depending on what your goals are either kit is a great option to get started! If you are unsure, please contact a Happy Medium Health coach to get started.

Here's a photo of me and Bill from the video after the 2014 Shaklee Cares 5k in Long Beach. I totally geeked out when I ran up next to him and said, "Aren't you Bill from the video?". #iamanerd
