Okay...I'm new to this, but here goes:
I am on a journey. It's a journey like most of the people here. I want to lose the excess weight that I have packed on over the years. My issues are a bit different than many, but not unheard of. I don't eat an unhealthy diet, I don't have a multitude of health problems, and, up until a year or so ago, I was reasonably active...but I packed on weight--sometimes over ten pounds in less than a couple of months.
One issue that I have is that I was hungry ALL THE TIME. No matter how balance my intake, I just couldn't seem to not be hungry. I drink plenty of water--it's my main beverage--but it just didn't seem to help. It was very frustrating and depressing. I could be following the same eating plan as a friend, with the same amount of exercise and activity, and she lost 18 pounds and I gained 3 in the same timeframe. Yeesh.
I had about given up until I found a tool to go along with my healthier eating habits. I know I need to become more active, but my school is online and between class and practice...I spend a lot of time in a chair at the computer. But I found something that I have been using for months and the sheer relief of not having the 'rumblies in my tumbly" every waking second, and being able to sleep through the night without waking up nauseous and hiccupping because I was SOOOO hungry is a blessing.
I know it isn't a magic pill, but, wow...! I haven't lost as much or as quickly as others on the same program...but just not to be so burning, churning, relentlessly hungry all the time is wonderful. I didn't pack it on overnight...I won't take it off overnight....but I will get there. Yay me. I believe in it so much I became a distributor. Ask me about it if you want another tool in your weight loss arsenal.
I feel very confident that I can achieve my goals. I have two beautiful grandbabies that I need to be able to keep up with. Everyone else in the family is very active. And I already don't get to spend enough time with them.
I started the morning ACV with lemon and honey this morning. WOW!! About 5-10 minutes after I took it, I started to sweat and feel very warm..which is a big difference for me as I am usually so cold. I feel it still, sitting in my stomach...but not in a bad way. It was a challenge to drink it, I won't lie...but I will be back at it tomorrow.
This is my journey...I have a lot to say about a lot of things. I welcome feedback, but I ask that you be mature and generous, as well as honest...and try to keep the negativity to a minimum. Lets do this thing!!!
