SkinnyMint Teatox Results + Weight Loss Update!

Hey friends! I am so glad you are today - as I am FINALLY sharing my results of the SkinnyMint Teatox program. I do apologize for delaying this update, I know many of you were curious and anxious to hear my results and how well this worked for me. And I have been excited to share them with you all... However, things just kind of got "crazy" for me and honestly the month of August was not a very good month for me in general. So, as I mentioned in this post, I kind of had to take a step back from a lot of things (my blog & youtube channel being a couple of those things) to be able to re-focus and get some priorities straight. I am sure many of you multi-tasking momma's out there can relate! And while things may be slow going here on the blog for a little longer, its working out for me to post at least 1-2 times a week (not counting Makeup Mondays). 

ANYWAY... With that explanation out of the way, lets get to my SkinnyMint TeaTox results! I started the 28 day program in early July and shared my first impressions 2 weeks into it. You can find that post (here) in case you missed it. If you did miss it, I do encourage you to read it to learn a little more about the teatox program, the taste, my thoughts, my progress, struggles as well as expectations of the program. Plus I also included a fun makeup look inspired by the packaging! ♥
So, lets cut to the chase... What are my results after completing the program? 
Well, I did end up losing some weight! However, it wasn't a consistent weight loss... I started out with a small weight loss, then gained a few pounds back, but then ended up losing some weight again. And over all I ended up losing 6 pounds total while doing the Teatox program.

While that may not seem like a major weightloss success to some, it still gave me something I absolutely needed. And that was a kick in the pants to finally get past this plateau I had been stuck on ever since I had gained and maintained an extra 10 pounds over the Holidays last year. I mentioned that weight gain in (this post) about feeding my food addiction. Since writing that post I still hadn't been able to lose anymore weight until I started this SkinnyMint Teatox Program. Now, since I had this weight loss boost from the teatox, I have been on a roll and my weight loss has continued! Yay!
So here is the official weight loss update... 
I am down to 159 pounds!! The lowest I had been able to get down to, previously, was 163/165 pounds, (cant remember for sure - I do believe I have it written down in one of my weight loss posts) which I maintained for a while. However as I already mentioned (again in this post) I had started to gain weight - about 10 pounds. And while being 173-175 pounds isn't an awful thing, because I still felt pretty good, I know myself and how quickly unhealthy habits can take over. I know how easy it is to gain weight and I how hard it is to lose it. I have worked SO hard to get to where I am today, I dont want to go back to the old unhealthy me. So it feels amazing to be back on track.

Moving off that tangent here is what I have been doing to help my weight loss since finishing the teatox program. I have been being even more careful about how much I eat, since that's one of my biggest down falls. I loved how the teatox helped to suppress my appetite... Honestly, anything that helps keep me from thinking about food is a good thing for me. I have been making sure to drink a lot more water - especially in the morning right after having my coffee and before a "big" meal. Also very often I will supplement 1 or 2 meals with a protein shake. I like the Premier Protein shakes the best, or when I dont have those I will use SlimFast shake powder mix with unsweetened vanilla almond milk. On those days I will try to snack extra on fresh fruit and raw veggies. 

I know that for some people, doing the "weight-loss shake" or meal supplement shake seems too much of a fad diet kind of thing. But it works for me because of my food addiction. It helps keep me in check, and helps to keeps me from stretching out my stomach! So when I do eat a regular meal I feel fuller faster and am less likely to over-indulge (which has always been my struggle). 

And lastly since my calf injury (mentioned in my first SkinnyMint Post) I am finally able to workout in the gym again! I was out for about 2 months - and it felt like forever! And unfortunately I have not been able to go as consistently as I had been previously, but its a start and it feels great. The ball is rolling and I'd like to keep it that way. :) Now my goal - more than hitting a specific number on the scale is just to be as healthy as I possible can, be as active as I possibly can and honestly I'd like to build some muscles on this smaller-but-still-soft body of mine. If only the weight room at the gym wasn't so intimidating! I'll get there though, I know I will.  Believe it and achieve it - right!? ♥

  1. Great to hear that this tea had a positive impact on your life, sometimes things like this give us the kick up the bum we need. Ive had a realisation like this recently! I quite fancy trying this tea xxx

  2. Love the cute mug picks :) I have never tried any tea like tea, which I should change. Good luck with your weight loss and with the gym. I haven't been to gym in ages! x

  3. Products like this make me really uncomfortable, probably from working with people with eating disorders and seeing the massive potential for abuse that they have. It's great that it's worked well for you to kickstart healthier habits, though!
