Hi there,

I have been on Sensa for 6 days now. I am so glad there is team page for it. It is easier to track my meals on this site and they have such good tips.
You are doing great keep it up.

Just a quick update! I am still using Sensa and I am still losing! I have lost 115 lbs so far! I have been using a little over 3 yrs. Granted it didn't take me this long to lose this much. I have been maintaining nicely most months and only work towards losing new weight every so often. This month the goal is hit 120 lbs lost! I love Sensa for making it so easy! I hope everyone is having a great year so far!!! I know I am and will! I will turn 37 this month and I am in better shape than when I turned 17! Who could ask for more!!!

Odd, I just started Sensa today. Found it in my mailbox, not sure if it was there yesterday, so started with lunch. After I had my usual SUBWAY sub, and chips with it, I decided to also buy the chocolate chip cookies. Thought I am going to really give this a test....CHOC chip cookies are my absolute favorites. I decided to buy the 3 for 1 deal. Now , normally they would all be gone by now.....I sprinkled Sensa on the one, ate it, and I SWEAR absolutely did not desire to finish them, and here it is close to bedtime, and I still have 2 left. That is so WEIRD.....

Then after church I bought my usual Vanilla cone from McDee's....and YES, sprinkled SENSA on that too. I am sitting here with NO desire to have anything more. That is very UN-NORMAL for me.

I am wondering if others are experiencing this phenom????

Thanks for the tips!!!! I find #8 to be one of the best... I don't eat out very often, but when my friend from CA (I'm in NJ) comes to stay for a day or two, we eat lunch and dinner out.. I find if I get the take out bag before I start eating, I don't miss the food at all... I haven't eaten out while on Sensa... so we'll see...

I get asked a lot about tips for starting Sensa... so I thought I would try to put them together. The ones below aren't all my tips, but they are they are a good starting place. I hope they help you. I have lost nearly 85 lbs since last Feb (2009) and I plan to lose 20 more soon!

1. Cut back on sodas slowly but faithfully. Not cold turkey, just make the effort to have fewer and try to get to 1 or none in a few weeks. Also keep alcohol, fancy coffees and energy drinks in their place . It is ok to have them from time to time, but realize they are high calorie and have no nutrients to speak of, so they are the truly empty calories. If you going to have them, remember to drink extra water before and after.

2. Drink all the water you can and try to keep track of it as best you can to see if you can get 64+ oz a day. I generally shoot for 80 or oz.

3. Read labels. Not for general nutrition info at first, just serving sizes. Even junk food has serving size... and if you are going to eat it, then try to eat only a serving size and put Sensa on it and then see if you really need more or if just having some of it is enough.

4. Eat the healthiest foods you LIKE! Not ones you don't like. And try to convert some favorite recipes to healthier ones. I didn't make too much effort in this area at first, but I do now. Also try to keep the sodium down, salty foods will cause you to retain water the next day or two even.

5. Pick and choose your splurges carefully and always keep the ending goal in sight. Just a few splurging meals back to back can set you back a week, and are they really worth that... it is just food.

6. Take body measurements and pictures along with your start weight and recheck them regularly, especially if the scale doesn't seem to be moving all the time and it won't, but that doesn't mean progress isn't being made.

7. If you WANT to start exercising, start slow and easy. Don't hurt yourself or your self esteem by trying something outside your skill set. Walking and getting in more steps per day is the easiest way to start for most people.

8. Use smaller plates at home and cut resturant meals in half when dining out (put in a ToGo box before eating). You don't have to order the healthiest thing on the menu. Pick your favorite item and try to pick a healthier side maybe or cut back drastically on the appetizers and desserts. You want to enjoy some of your favorite foods if dining out, just make smaller splurges.

9. Try to eat your evening meal as early in the evening as possible. It helps with your sleep and weight loss. If you have to eat late, make the effort to eat light at that meal.

10. Last but certainly not least use your Sensa on everything!!!! Even small portions or fixed amounts of food should still be sprinkled, to help you feel satisfied until the next meal!

I hope you find these tips helpful. Feel free to add to them with your comments.
