2 New Weight Loss Tips



So, I recently started using to new nutrient based things to help me in my weight loss journey. I haven't really been taking them long enough to give you guys any final results but I would like to go ahead and let you know what they are and how I fell about them so far. I've been taking them for a week now.

The first is Gymnema Sylvestre and it is a natural herb that helps regulate blood sugar and curbs your cravings for sugar. Now, I am a sugar addict! I mean if I had my way I'd have a pastry (or 2) for breakfast, something sweet for lunch and something sweet with dinner not to mention juices and sugar based snacks throughout the day. I mean I've got it bad.

Now I'm starting to think the Gymnema Sylvestre is working because I purchased a bundtlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes Tuesday and it is DELICIOUS...but I've only managed to eat a third of it. I've had it for 2 days already. NO WAY IN HELL is this normal for me! So I think this one is working.

You can purchase them and GNC and Whole Foods but I got them from Amazon.com because they were much cheaper. I take 2 a day one right before lunch and one right before dinner. It is suggested that you take them twice a day before your 2 biggest meals.

Although I'm a diabetic, I don't check my blood sugar levels the way I should and I HATE Metformin so I also don't take it the way I should. Please don't judge me, I already know how irresponsible that is which is why I'm looking for alternative ways to control my blood sugar levels. I will start checking my levels again Sunday.

I am not a medical professional so please don't change your routine because of what I'm doing. I'm just sharing MY journey with you.



The second supplement that I've begin taking is Trace Mineral Concetrate. The idea behind this is that it provides a healthy dose of the minerals your body needs to stop us from mindlessly snacking in search of getting them.

I haven't been as snackish but I can't really say rather this one is 'working' or not. I'll keep you guys up to date. I purchased this from Amazon also. .

I really hope to lose 25 pounds before the 2017. Wish me luck!

Please see the links on my blog page to purchase.

10 Things That Make Me Happy

In an effort to write more and post more on my blog (once again) I am going to start sharing writing prompts on my Facebook page. I'm sharing them with my friends because I truly believe in the calming power of writing and if I can encourage just one person to write then I've done my job. So here you have it' 10 Things That Make Me Happy: In No Particular Order 


Motherhood. Without out a single ounce of exaggeration, I live for my kids. I am consistently plagued with feelings of loathing and self doubt but I know that I brought these little people into the world and that I'm responsible for them. Because I feel that I have the responsibility to put on a brave face for so many other people no one will every fully understand the demons I fight on a regular basis. My children are my protectors. If it weren't for them I would have lost my battle to at least one a long time ago. 






Creating. Ya'll know I love to craft. My love for craft gives me a sense of accomplishmen…
