Day 3

Well, I’m doing pretty good on my plan so far.  I’m not doing some of the things I need to be doing but I guess I will work up to them.  I want to get on a consistent exercise plan but I don’t have a routine right now.  I’m looking for a job.  Right now I’m an unhappy housewife trying to get my house organized and it’s impossible!  I have so much clutter and not enough time in the day to get it sorted out.  It’s driving me crazy!  Just when I think I’ve made some headway I find something else that’s messed up.  It’s never ending!

On a more personal note, my husband and I are fighting a lot lately.  I feel like I have to walk on eggshells and be perfect all the time and it’s really stressing me out.  He’s the love of my life and I’ve know him forever but I think it might be possible that he’s got some kind of personality disorder.  He’s mildly emotionally abusive and I’m not sure what to do about it.  I don’t want to leave him but I don’t want to be with him anymore.  Rock-me-hard place.

Anywho, I’m not keeping a food journal either, which I need to do.  I’m having soy yogurt, a gluten free pecan sandy cookie and a nice hot cup of black tea for breakfast every morning which I’m quite fond.  I have a snack sometime during the day, usually in the mid-morning of a Splenda diet soda and a handful of salt-free nuts (very satisfying).  For lunch I have a lovely canned salmon and tuna salad made with celery, onion powder, garlic powder, dill, salt, pepper, parsley, light mayo and gluten free brown rice shell pasta.  I have it with a quarter of a tomato cut into bit sized pieces and 3-4 gluten free saltine type crackers.  I have it with iced green tea I brew myself and applesauce for dessert.  For dinner I have 4 ounces of baked chicken, turkey or fish with half a cup of healthy starch and a cup or two of fresh veggies.  I also have a small glass of sulfite free wine with dinner but I count it as my dessert.  And, of course, I’m taking my Sveltyl I, II, III and IIII religiously.  So far I’ve lost 2.4 pounds so all is well. 

Trying Sveltyl

Hi.  I hope I’m doing this right.  I’m new to this process. 

I know it’s dumb but I’m desperate.  I’ve tried everything to lose weight and nothing has worked for me.  I will try not to ramble too much on here but that is hard for me.  I tend to go on and on.

Today is my first day on the Sveltyl plan.  The ad didn’t elude to the ingredients so I was very sceptical but now that I’ve received my first shipment and done the research, I must say, I’m impressed.  It’s a 4 part process; I is primarily an ingredient called Camellia Sinensis which is basically tea.  I Wikipediaed it and it’s used in Chinese medicine to treat Asthma.  I did notice that just a few minutes after taking it, I was able to breath deeper and with less effort and it’s lasting a long time too.  It has a good bit of caffeine in it but I’m not jittery at all so that’s nice.  II is a liquid form of Hoodia and Vitamine A.  I’m sure everyone here knows what that is.  III is a thing called Konjac.  Wikipedia says it’s used commonly in Asian cultures as a gelatin but is beneficial to dieters as a soluble fiber and laxative.  There was also mention about benefiting those with type 2 diabetes (which I have due to my large size).  Anyone interested can check Wiki too.  It’s rather interesting, really.  IIII is iodine.  It’s supposed to support Thyroid function but I’ve read recently that we all need this now.  Something about jet fuel in the ground water is messing up everyone’s Thyroid glands.  Nice.

I have also started a new eating plan.  Just one of my own since the product didn’t come with one.  I found out years ago by reading Dr. Sandra Cabot’s book, “The Body Shaping Diet” that I’m a classic Lymphoid which means I shouldn’t eat dairy products.  Which is real nice since I’m a major cheese and ice cream FREAK.  That’s ok, I do well with soy products and they are almost as good.  My sister-in-law has cut out gluten so I’m doing that too although that’s very hard to do as well.  I’m not much of a bread person but, well, you know.

Anywho, getting started today and doing well so far.  I will need a lot of help from anyone interested.  I’m not a great cook and I’m seriously lazy so it won’t be easy but I’m committed to making this work.  I haven’t set any deadlines for this but I’d really like to surprise my stepson when he comes to visit this Christmas.  He loves me no matter what I look like but I think he will be really happy if I’m able to lose weight and feel better.  My husband has effectively sabotaged my every effort to lose weight in the past 4 years so I’m not expecting any help from him.
