“As a young adult, I was always fit and healthy playing sport and enjoying what life had to offer. When I became a mum I had little time to do sport etc. After an injury and surgery, I struggled with my weight and have done so for years.
I turn 50 this year and I want to be fit fab and fifty not fat flabby and fifty. We have a holiday planned and I want to make sure I am able to enjoy all that it has to offer. My health just wasn’t good always with aches and pains and when I got ill it was starting to always take longer to get better.
I feel like I have my life back!!! After 9.5weeks of using The Lady Shake I dropped 15kg. I started sleeping better and have so much more energy. I use to go to the osteopath every week and I only go once a month now. It’s been great going into ladies clothing stores and knowing I can just buy there now. My family has seen a big change not only in my size but my drive to keep going.
I love when my 22yr son puts his arms around me and tells me he is proud of me.
I would say what have you got to lose apart from kilos!!! The shakes are affordable and work if you are willing to work.
I was super strict the first 4 weeks no alcohol, no drinks from cans, no bread, added lots of drinking water and walking my Fitbit has really helped to make sure I am moving enough and that really is a keyword ENOUGH!
I have been having 2 shakes a day and eating dinner with my family most nights. I have made sure to include healthy small snacks to keep the metabolism going, there are days I am not hungry however I will still get out a Lady Bar and have a few bites.
It isn’t all work and no play now we still enjoy a meal out and I enjoy a bourbon on the weekend!”
At the time of my initial story I had lost 15kgs in 9.5 weeks and was well on my way to being fit fab and fifty, I have now lost 29kg since January and have hit my target plus I am now fit fab and fifty!!
I have been super happy being able to maintain my weight as I have been on a holiday of a lifetime to Hawaii for a week and then cruising home 18night. The scale only moved a very little bit however within a week of being home I was back to my pre-holiday weight. I was at every zumba class available also used the stairs MOST of the time! I absolutely ate and had lots of cocktails while on holidays, I think a lot comes down to smart choices in activities plus food and drink options
I started my journey in January 2018 and hit my goal in August 2018.
I still have shakes sometimes one a day and sometimes two a day, however, I now also have started having lunches out at work again it comes down to smart choices for me. Some days I don’t have a shake, I also do always carry a lady bar in my handbag just in case I get hungry!!
The lady shake has changed my life!! I am so much happy in all aspects of life, I no longer need to stop as I have so much energy. I have achieved the thing that I thought not ever possible as in hikes in Hawaii – Diamond Head was a really nice walk, Pink Pill Box was a bit more challenging then there was the KoKo Crater trail that was hard but I made it. (Photo with hat and black top was when I reach the top of Koko).This would never have been possible without lady shake
For anyone looking at starting I would say go for it, you have nothing to lose except weight!! The entire family can enjoy the meals and enjoy the great outdoors with you. There is no huge outlay to become a lady shaker. The lady shakes come in a lot of flavours so something to suit all taste, also the lady bars are so good and handy to carry with you to best any cravings.
UPDATE – 2021
Mel is still going strong!
You can absolutely achieve your goals on the other side of 50! I’m so grateful for my TLS journey.
