Smart Forme review and a tip.



Recommended Posts

So I bought one of each Smart Forme starter packs. I am trying my first Protein Drink, the Cranberry fusion. It has a pleasant, refreshing taste, and it is 15g Protein for 8oz volume, so that is nice. I have been diluting the nectar samples I have out to 20oz and so that takes quite a while to get down.

It does have a bit of a "protein" smell though. I am drinking it out of a glass and not a sipper bottle because of the small volume, and that is a nice change. But then I have to hold my breath to take a sip. So, here is my tip- I put a piece of saran wrap across 2/3 of the top of the glass, and voila! no more bothersome smell while I sip.

So there is quite an assortment of stuff with 15g protein in my boxes, and the shipping was fast. So I have some new stuff to keep me busy till Monday (full liquids! Yeah!)

That is a good idea blue. I thought about getting some of the foam cups with lids like for coffee and using those. Judy

How do you get your Protein? I'd love to find a better way than proteinpowders!

Yes- I tried some of their Protein Bars as well (I bought the starting out packs) and they were very good. I'll have to look and see which ones I had. I haven't tried everything in the boxes, but I have been pleased with what I have tried.

The price on the starter kit is excellent. $19.99 for so many different products. It sounds like they are full size cartons of regular product?

I'm not sure if they ship to Canada but I will have to check it out.

        It will be interesting to watch as this theory develops. Thanks for posting!

      Feel like it's time for a status update, I haven't been on here regularly in a while and I need to keep my mindset focused on my goals.
      I haven't weighed myself in ~ 3 weeks.  I think I'm becoming the opposite of "obsessive" about tracking my progress and it could cause me some issues.  The good thing is that there have still been quite a number of NSV's happening that is telling me that I'm still progressing without knowing what the scale says.
      First one is that a belt I bought about 5 weeks ago because all my other belts were too big is also on the last hole so I'll have to buy yet another belt again.  second, I bought new jeans about a month ago and I have a lot more slack in the waist than I did when I purchased them.  I also boarded a plane and had about 8 inches of slack in the belt.  Finally, I hit my goal last week of being able to ride go-carts with my kids.  The last time I tried about 4 years ago, I had to leave because I couldn't fit in the harness.  This was sweet victory and I showed those two how it was done on the race course!!  😈

      I just looked through all my old pants after my pre-op pants started getting to big. Keep in mind that I wear men's pants (usually cargos) because I am so tall 5'10"/5'11" ish. I also find that men's baggies tend to fit me better.
      I started out at a 44 in waist pant and quickly found that I was back down to my 42's. So even when thise got to be too big, I had to start pulling old clothes out of storage. After finding my 38's, I thought that these would not yet fit, but when I tried them on, they fit perfectly. I also found some older pants that now fit better than I remembered. What a relief! It's not like I can pop down to the store like I could do in the US and the styles here in Sweden are all skinnt jeans which I cant stand. I also found some 36's, but I'm not mentally ready to try those on yet. The biggest challenge will be buying women's clothing again.

      slow and steady wins the race.  don't get discouraged and just keep at it. Let your sleeve do its job and try not to stress yourself out.
      hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying what your sleeve has given you.
      just got back from a wedding in OR. and man am i afraid to get on the scale

        Great reminder about how fast you can lose weight. The mind games we play with ourselves are the worst.
