About a month ago I started on these new all natural supplements. The results have been amazing!! Let's see. . .I'm not even sure where to begin.
I didn't personally start them for weight loss, although people have seen amazing results with that. However, without even trying, I now weigh less than I did in college. . .12 years ago! And, remember, with Abigail I gained over 40 lbs. I had to buy new capris and shorts today because I need 2 sizes smaller than I had. It was getting embarrassing to wear saggy pants. I think these supplements are awesome for helping you lose weight, especially if you carry your weight around your middle like me. That goes along with insulin resistance/diabetes. Speaking of that, I ate some cookies that I bought for Olivia today. I don't eat cookies that often because of my blood sugar and doing so makes me feel awful afterwards. But, I did tonight and dreaded my blood sugar results. Two hours later, I felt fine and my blood sugar was 108!! 108!
Okay, now on to energy. Those who have been on this journey with me for the past 5 years know that I struggle immensely with fatigue. Awful. I now have these amazing little all natural energy pills. I can't say enough good things about them. Usually I have to stay away from any kind of stimulant because they worsen my restless legs. Not this.
Speaking of my restless legs, I have struggled with them for over 3 years. They are very severe for me. I haven't slept in 3 years without taking a medication for my legs. I've tried many nights unsuccessfully. One time I went a week without any meds and I didn't sleep for a week and ended up in the ER. A few weeks ago, I slept my first night in 3 years without taking any medication for my legs. I cried the next morning. I've gone a few more nights without any restless legs meds, but not every night yet. One reason is that I have been taking cold medicine and it always worsens my legs. But, I am expecting great improvement in the weeks to come.
When starting this, I was just hoping for improvement with either my blood sugar, energy or restlessness and it has helped all three.
I know some people believe diet and exercise to be the only way to go, but sometimes you are so far into a hole that you need a little help getting out. This works with a healthy diet and exercise. I just needed something to help get me to a level playing field. As soon as my broken toe heals, I'm hoping to start some kind of exercise routine. And, of course, diet is so important. I'm exploring gluten free diets, low carb or possibly paleo or the Eat To Live program. The juice that I drink has 22 super fruits in it in one serving. You couldn't get that daily in your diet.
I know how frustrating it is to not feel good and to not know exactly why. I know what it's like to feel completely on your own to figure it out. I would love to help you. If you would like more information, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Just envision how great you could feel a month from now!
