Many terrific men and women are now participating in the second month of the SLMsmart Challenge. Though the process of developing new, healthy lifestyles can be difficult, it has been great to see the positivity and enthusiasm coming from many of our Challengers.
For example, Brook Strebe of Arizona speaks highly of her SLMsmart experience so far. One of the best parts of her journey has been the involvement of her husband/fellow challenger Nathan Strebe. “Having someone supporting you, keeping you accountable and helping you along the way is so valuable,” Brook said. “That has been very helpful to me.”
Both of them have already begun experiencing benefits of the Challenge beyond weight loss. Nathan, for example, won $250 on his Scratch & Win card. Brook won a t-shirt on her card… and though that may seem small by comparison, she’s grateful for the rewards of the Challenge more valuable than cash.
“I have been surprised,” wrote Brook “at how my strong sugar cravings, like wanting cookies, cakes or candy, are gone. My body feels satisfied and I actually don’t want it. Never felt this before. I sometimes feel bad when I am at a party and everyone offers me all this junk food or high carbs that taste so good and I always turn it down.”

What advice would you give to someone new to SLMsmart and the SLMsmart Challenge?
“The advice I would give is to never give up, and that preparation is most important. Stay connected to someone else in the group for support. Be kind to yourself! You are worth it!”
What tool or product has been the most useful to you so far?
“The SLMsmart Health Shake.”
“I have to say I have learned a lot about myself. I have never really and truly eaten so clean for this long and not gone crazy with cravings, and to be able to have success in losing weight. It’s amazing! And I feel so great! This has been very emotional, more so than I thought it would be. I am learning so much about me. I love this experience. I am looking forward to month two and taking this to another level.”
