So I decided to jump on the FitTea band wagon and I will tell you what I think about it. So I have purchased an over the counter slimming tea product previously. So what do I think of FitTea I honestly can say I don’t think it works for me. In comparison to the over the counter tea I purchased. I say it comes in dead last. When I drink the FitTea it tastes great and smells good. I make it the same way I made my slimming tea. Well what the FitTea claims is not the what happens. It makes me urinate a great deal but something in it makes my body swell and it doesn’t help me lose weight or curb my appetite.
My over the counter slimming tea. Well when I drink it I feel great, it not only gets the water weight off of me it helps stay regular. If you know what I mean. It also helps to curb my appetite. Now this doesn’t help me lose weight either but it does completely detox me.
So what do I think overall with both teas? I don’t think there is some magic tea to help you lose weight but if you need a detox tea I would say in my case my over the counter Slimming Tea I purchased a Meijer for $4.99 is a heck of a lot better to me than the $25 I paid for the FitTea. That is just my opinion. I think with any healthy eating plan and exercise anyone can get down to the weight they want. I know my doctors have been telling me for my health its better for me to get on a high vegetarian low fat diet, (of which I have ignored) if I follow that plan I will lose the weight I need and want to and maintain a healthier life. With walking I plan to do since it’s getting nice here in Michigan. I will be well on my way to losing this 30 pounds I have gained being a stay-at-home mom these last 5 years.
Okay, so things have been a little off and on with the dieting for the last two weeks. I can’t say that I have actually been doing the whole high vegetarian/low fat diet but I have cut down on the sweets. Not so much on the Coca Cola, its just to hard to give that up. Though I did set up the dietbet I canceled it because I don’t want people to feel pressured into getting healthy and losing some weight. So if you are going to take this journey with me. Lets just do it without pressure, without stress and without putting money on the line. With that being said I am giving myself until June 28th which is my birthday everyone to get down to 120 – 110. Now I got myself up to 157 lbs eating horribly wrong. To which I am utterly disappointed in myself. As I explained before mostly because of my medication, mainly because of poor eating habits.
Since I know I am limited to the types of exercises I can do, what I can do to exercise I plan to do. I am not going out buying thousands of dollars in equipment or running out to buy a gym membership. For what when I have YouTube which is free as well as cable and Amazon Prime which has some great low impact, high result workouts I can do which wont affect my physical health.
So when I started this journey I was 157 I am happy to say at my doctors appointment yesterday I weighed in at 155 and the only real thing I did differently was cut out sweets. This journey will not be easy and I may have a few relapses but this time considering my health is at risk. I am determined to not just lose weight but get healthier. Let’s get healthier together!
Okay all, so I went to the doctor today and it seems the 31 pounds I have gained over the past few years is causing me to have more health problems than expected. So not only do I need to lose weight one of my doctors has put me on a high vegetarian low fat diet. Which my primary care physician told me about a year ago I need to go on a low fat diet. Though, I didn’t listen. Now it seems I am causing myself more harm than good. So here it goes…. I am going to tell you where I started, where I am and where I want to be.
Even after having 7 children I always maintained a weight between my lowest 98 lbs and highest 110 lbs, which most people thought was still too small. I am only 5’3″ so technically I was within my range. After my last baby I weighed between 112 lbs -120 lbs which was great though I still wanted to be fit and not flabby. Ok so most of you know in 2010 I had a huge health tragedy and nearly died. Which after a week in the hospital I came out way small than I went in. Fast forward 2 years I slowly started gaining weight and not really understanding why. Well it all came to me that some of it was due to medication the rest of it was due to poor diet. See when I worked prior to the tragedy I barely ate because life was just too busy plus I was more active. Being forced by my health to be a stay at home mom turned my kitchen into a playground for me. Hence… weight gain. And constant trips to the store to buy as much chocolate and snacks as I pleased. And though through that time I have consistently tried to diet and eat healthy. I relapsed so many times. Which leaves me to weighing in at 151 lbs right now. Well in most cases that is not really all that heavy. Lets remember I am 5’3″ tall. On top of that I only have around 68-70 percent lung function right now due to the tragedy in late 2010 paired with knee pains, and a few other issues that will turn into a book if I keep writing.
So in my case the weight gain is actually not a good thing. Now, I’m not trying to be super small like I was in prior years I feel 120 is a safe weight for me. I won’t be too skinny which has also caused me issues when I was under 120. And I won’t be too big. To me that is the just right weight. So if there are any of you out there that would like to follow me on this journey
