Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
So here's the deal.. I have been sick with CFIDS (chronic fatigue immunodeficiency syndrom) for just over three years now. Two years ago, I quit working.. I had a fantastic job that let me wear shorts to work, I didn't have to put on any makeup, and no one cared if I wore a ball cap cause I didn't get up in time to do something about my hair. It also happened to be very physically challenging, so it pretty much kept me at a nice trim size 8 with some well defined upper body muscles. Then came CFIDS, and with it, the inability to keep working and an extremely difficult time even exercising for a few minutes a day. Flash forward to now at a size 14 with not a muscle in sight. Anyway, it's making me crazy that everything I own is too tight to wear in public, lol. And could possibly get me an indecent exposure ticket or something.
So, here's the plan. Since exercising is almost out of the question, something else must happen. You've all seen the commercials or ads online.. Sensa. Yep, I ordered it. It arrived about a week ago and I've been sprinkling it on everything as it says. I've lost one pound so far, a pound a week and I'll be very happy.. happier if that picks up a bit. But, I can confirm that it does do away with the cravings and the second helpings. I almost had to make myself eat a popsicle yesterday afternoon.. and then I thought... DUH! the whole idea is not to eat popsicles, lol. Anyway, I've got 25 more days to 'test' this stuff and decide if I want to pay their exorbitant price or not... and yest I checked with a Dr. first.. the boyfriend who happens to be a doc counts right? lol So, if anyone is interested in my experimentation with this stuff, I'll keep ya posted.
