C9 FIT Forever Living Review #ForeverBringIt #Ad

Clean 9 Fit Forever Living

Sebby started pre-school every morning back in September which put a stop to our fun days out during the week.

This has had the knock-on effect of me leading a more sedentary life as I am bound by three school runs a day and I noticed my weight slowly creeping up.

Over Christmas I started notice even my most forgiving jeans were getting uncomfortably tight and when I finally braved stepping on the scales I wanted to cry – I was the heaviest I have ever been.

I had been ignoring the weight creeping on until then, promising myself I would start a diet next week, only next week never came, but the scales telling me I had almost reached 12 stone was enough to give me a metaphorical slap and tell me that I needed to do something and now!

My friend has been trying to persuade me to do the C9 FIT Forever Living plan for the last six months but I wasn’t ready, however, feeling tired, sluggish and generally “meh” after Christmas, I needed something to kick-start a healthier me.

I was sent the C9 FIT box and inside I found my choice of vanilla shakes (you can also have chocolate), Forever Aloe Vera Gel, Forever Therm supplements, Forever Garcinia Plus supplement, Forever Fibre and a booklet to guide you through the programme.

During the program you take the supplements and Aloe Vera Gel at regular intervals, have protein shakes as your main food and drink nothing but water. On days three to nine you are allowed a 500 to 600 calorie meal in the evenings.

I am not going to lie – the first day was awful!

I am not very good at taking tablets and the Forever Living ones are huge! It also didn’t help that I was feeling ill from a UTI and I gagged whilst trying to take my first tablets. Thankfully my friend Joy, who is a Forever Living rep, was at the end of the phone to offer me support and advice which got me through the first day.

As the week progressed I found it easier and easier, although I did suffer with a break out in spots on day 3 as my body was cleansing itself of toxins and pollution (a common side effect). On days where I worked (in a pre-school) I did find it more difficult to drink the recommended amount of water as I was on the go constantly, but keeping a diary of the food I was eating and exercise I was getting motivated me to keep going.

Exercise wise, I have increased my walking, choosing to take the long route home from school every morning and walking to the shops instead of jumping in the car. Isaac has started swimming 4 times a week in a pool attached to a gym and once he settles (he is still a bit nervous of the new routine), I want to join the gym and do an exercise class whilst he has his lessons. I have increased my goal settings on my apple watch too and although I don’t hit them everyday, it has given me the kick to keep going.

I have a love / hate relationship with my scales and often weigh myself on a daily basis, but purposely didn’t go near them as I was advised that fluctuations in weight are normal as the body adjusts throughout the various stages of the plan and extra weigh- ins may reveal slight gains mid-week.  Although this is perfectly normal I knew it would be damaging to my confidence and willpower, until curiosity got the better of me on day six that is.

The Results:

I am delighted with my progress so far. I feel more energised, my jeans are once again comfortable and I lost an incredible 7½lbs and 12″ from my body, with the most noticeable results around my middle, which is where I tend to carry my weight.

Doing the program has definitely given me the kick to carry on and I have re-started my MUTU exercises to help me get my ‘mum tum’ back into shape and listening to my slimpod again after digging it out of the iTunes library and popping it back on my phone, plus I am still taking a Forever Therm supplement and drinking the recommended 2 litres of water every day, plus picking healthy snacks if I am peckish rather than reaching for chocolate.

I still have a stone to lose and have a target of the end of March to reach my goal, but I am determined to get there.

Disclosure: I’m working with Forever Living and BritMums in a paid relationship, showcasing the C9 Programme, kick-starting my eating and fitness goals. Find out more here.

    You can see the results in the images at the end. I am not sure that I could cope just on shakes though. Not that it is a choice for me as my consultant said not to any weight loss plan at the moment

    Awe, you can see the results and look fab Kara! I was going to apply to do this but decided not too! Doh! I’ve done it before and would do again but find the Aloe Vera drink disgusting! Lol! I lost about 6lbs on it and lots of inches too. It definately helped me to lose all that weight. Well done you.

  16. Well done that is brilliant weight loss. I have heard great things about FL products and sometimes you just need that boost to get started. x

    Well done Kara, that’s great and you can definitely see a difference around your middle. I am miserable with my weight at the moment but am struggling massively to get myself back into healthy eating and exercise. I found Christmas left me craving chocolate, cake and biscuits. We have managed to do dry January without any problems but it hasn’t made a single bit of difference to my weight. I have now reached the stage where my skin is actually sore because I feel like it is stretching 🙁 I have heard great things about C9 so i’m watching your journey with great interest xx

  26. Wow Kara, that is brilliant! Well done on your weight loss and the inches you have lost! It’s really useful that you had a good friend who knew the system and was able to help you when you needed it, and that you have now started to do other things you help yourself achieve your goals.
