My Fast Metabolism Party With #MommyParties

 I've struggled and struggled as I get older to lose just that last 10 pounds. I have never had the perfect diet so over time my metabolism had just become non existent. I was really excited when I was selected by Mom Select to do a mommy party on the new book The Fast Metabolism Diet. If you are a long time reader then you know a couple months ago we had started working out together at work. So of course as soon as I found I KNEW that was the perfect place to hold my party!

When I got my kit I was soooo excited! Not only did I receive 11 copies of the book, but I got a ton of free samples from Celestial Seasonings, which is by far my favorite tea maker. Great samples of raw organic cashew butter, I was very excited to try it. Two free product coupons from Applegate, another company I had never tried although I had seen them before at our local  health food store. To top off all this amazing stuff I got a brand new Crockpot!
 So I got to planning, divided out all the goods and coupons so that everyone could have the same amount, boy was I excited. We started up some chicken in the crockpot for some yummy tacos early in the morning before school(we have kitchens in our rooms) it was so nice to be able to make a healthy dish while we went about our work day. It was a lot of fun going through the book and figuring out together how to boost our metabolism. As busy moms we all were eager to learn how to save time and lose weight.
 I have to admit I was a little scared by the book. I like limited amount of veggies and I LOVE carbs! I am 2 weeks in now and starting to feel pretty good. Although I am still having to choke down the food, I just can't find enjoyment in it! I have found some great recipes though. I think my favorite part of this book is the nearly 100 pages of recipes that are listed by phases, which makes it really handy!
I'm really happy to say that our weightloss is going great! in 2 weeks I am down 2 pounds and in the last couple months several of the ladies at work have lost a size or more!
**I received the above mention products in order to have this party and conduct a review. All views expressed are those of my own.**

That is fantastic that you are trying your best. It really is never easy changing your eating style. I really want to work on mine too. It has been a struggle for a long time with me. I love how it comes with many recipes.
