As most of you know…I’ve been trying to loose weight since I started this blog.
I’ve cut out fast food, soft drinks, sweets, and bread as much as I possibly can.
I’m not on a DIET.
I am just trying to make healthier choices and eat more fresh vegetables and fruits.
So far I’ve done well with the changes.
I don’t really crave the soft drinks or the sweets.
I’m still having a hard time with limiting bread.
Bread is my downfall.
But I’m trying to substitute romaine lettuce for bread when I eat tuna or any deli sandwich lunch meat and it’s working.
I come from a family that had bread on the table with every meal.
My Dad worked for Merita.
My mom was always making fresh sourdough and amish friendship bread year round.
I was in LOVE with bread.
So with my favorite foods being bread, pasta, and pizza…I guess I just was stuck in carb land.
I’m slowly learning to limit those foods, but I occassionally still have them if I’m craving them…just a smaller portion than what I was used to having.
I’ve learned that this is a lifetime change.
The weight is not going to come off in a day.
I have to work at it.
EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
I have not weighed myself in the last 9 months and do not intend to anytime soon.
I’m not going by numbers on the scale.
I have noticed changes and I’m happy with them.
I have never had much luck with taking supplements or weight loss pills.
They usually have weird side effects for me.
However, I’ve recently started taking a supplement for weight loss with Apple Cider Vinegar, Kelp, Lecithin, & B-6 in it.
It’s a dietary supplement that states it promotes fat breakdown.
The Lecithin in the supplement is a powerful emulsifier that helps dissolve fats and cholesterol in the blood.
The natural Iodine from the Kelp supports the Thyroid-a gland that regulates metabolism.
And the Apple Cider Vinegar cleans out your system and aids in promoting fat loss.
I’m taking one tablet three times a day with meals.
In combination with eating healthy and a regular exercise routine this is supposed to improve your weight loss.
With time, I should see a change.
Focusing on eating healthier and being more active are at the top of my goals.
Have you had any luck with taking vitamins or supplements of any kind?
