I'm embarrassed to admit it. In a moment of weakness, I did something.
I believe the best way to loose weight is calories in/calories out. What you eat. How much you move. Lifestyle change. No magic pills.
Heck, I hate medications/pills.
I got suckered. The newest advertisements for the weight loss supplements are different. Now they tout the natural aids to weight loss, such as green tea, etc. I believe in using natural supplements to get things done, keep you healthy, etc.
Well, on a really weak day, I came across an add that was touting the four major barriers to weight loss, and how to overcome them. Of course at the end was the add for the supplements that addressed these four barriers and how it was all natural, etc.
I ordered a bottle. One bottle. I figured why not.
Meanwhile, a friend of mine is big into Visi. If you are not familiar with this one, it's another natural supplement to aid you in weight loss. There was a booth at a local farmers market here in town that had samples. So I grabbed some information and a sample. My friend Joyce is having great success with it. It's gluten free and touted as all natural.
So my thoughts on this all are I caved. But what's done is done. I bought them for a reason. Now time to see. It won't hurt me to try to see what effects it has on my loss. That being said, I may not be able to see it. I really don't know if I'm going to go back to using a scale to help me measure, of if I'm going to keep avoiding it. That's a decision for another day.
For today, I have my non scale measurements. My moods. My pictures. Measurements. I did an honest evaluation of my pictures yesterday on my Progress Pics blog. I don't think I was imagining what I was seeing. Especially since I'm seeing it in my jeans as well.
So today I'm going to start my Visi samples - I only have 3 tablets. Then my RealDose ones should be here on Tuesday. I have a one month supply of those. In that month, I'll decide if I want to order one month of Visi to try right after.
I'm just feeling I need a little support. A push in the right direction. Even if they only work as placebos, it's a way to kick start my changes. I will still be focused on my nutrition and activity - all of these offer natural energy sources to help with working out, and better mental clarity. Let's face it, it's been a week from HE!! with PMS this week. I need any help I can get.
