New Year-Hopefully New Me

Before I got pregnant with Canaan in 2005 I weighed 145 pounds. Being 5'7 I was a perfect weight even though I didn't realize it at the time and called myself 'fat" all the time. Whenever I got pregnant I went from 145 to 200 before he was born. I had lost almost all of that weight because I could  almost button my pre pregnancy pants. The stress of my husband being laid off and us having to make major changes such as having to move states I ballooned back up. I didn't realize how huge I was until I saw pictures of me at my cousins wedding and started to cry. At the time I always would get depressed about it, but I would try to live my life as a plus size girl even though it wasn't easy. The summer of 2009 I lost an amazing 25 pounds in two months by just getting off my butt and doing something everyday. We would go swimming, I would dance around the house with Canaan and I never even noticed I was working out. I have not felt that good in a long time. Even my husband got in the weight loss mode and ended up loosing an amazing 80 pounds. We would go work out every day. By the time November came around I found out I was pregnant with Gage. I knew in the back of my head that I was going to gain back all the weight that I had lost. Jason and I went swimming the whole summer up until I had him in July and amazingly I started loosing the weight and I was shocked! I was breastfeeding so I figured that had something to do with it. After my mom passed I started packing on the pounds because I was so depressed that I just didn't care to exercise or cook, so we ate out a lot. I can't believe that I had let myself gain weight again! I was feeling down when I got an e-mail from Sensa Weight Loss, you know the kind that you can eat what you want as long as you shake the stuff on your food. To me that sounded like it would be perfect since I have two kids and by the end of the day I am thinking sleep and not working out. I started the program the next day and to my surprise I noticed that I didn't eat as much as I used to. Some people say that you can taste the Sensa, but I don't even notice that it is on there. I sprinkle everything even sweets. The first sweet I tried it on was a Christmas cupcake and by the 2nd bite I was full and didn't want anymore. Your shaker comes with two compartments with one labeled as SWEET and the other SALTY. so you know which side to use on your meal. Every Thursday is my weigh in say and within the first week I lost 2 pounds. All I had done was sprinkle all my food and drink plenty of water. For exercise I played Just Dance 3 on the WII with the boys. We went on vacation to the Wilderness of the Smokies for Christmas and I took my shaker with me. This Thursday I weighed myself and I have lost another 3 pounds! A total of 5 pounds in two weeks. I have tried plenty of weight loss programs that just didn't work, but I am here to say that Sensa DOES! If you would like to hear about peoples astonishing results then check out a Sensa review and see it is right for you. Another great tool that I had found is on the Sensa Blog in which they give you delicious recipes, work out instructions, more Sensa reviews

Before starting any weight loss diets please check with your doctor first. I was given 2 free months of Sensa for my review. All opinions are my own and not influenced in any way.


  1. I'm 5'7'' too! Let's just say I face the same struggles! I have gained too much weight and can't wait for it to come off!

  2. I'm only 5'2" and every extra pound really shows on me. I was very petite before getting pregnant with my daughter (ummmm......almost 8 years ago) and haven't been back to my normal weight since. :( I'd love to try Sensa, but I wonder how safe it is???
