Today I started a new diet.
It has been 9 months and 8 days since I gave birth to my youngest of three girls and I still have 30 lbs to lose to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight of 130lbs.
Thirty pounds is quite a bit of weight to lose, so I know this will be a challenge, but I’m ready to fit back into all of the clothes that are collecting dust in my closet.
After the birth of my middle daughter I lost all of the weight I gained and then some and got down to 130 lbs and wore a size 4/6. I felt great and looked great, but was starving. I did a diet that consisted of pre-packaged foods that you drink, drank a ton of water and ate one meal a day, other than the packaged foods, that consisted of a chicken breast and a vegetable. I was starving for three months straight, but did it and lost 30 lbs. My hair fell out, like after you have a baby and your hormones are all out of whack, I was very irritable and all I could think about was my next “meal”. It really sucked!
I gained the weight back when I got pregnant and now after going through the starving myself method of losing weight, I could never go back. Yes, it worked, but it sure was a miserable process to go through!
I have been given the opportunity to try a new product on the market for weight loss called Sensa and I’m very excited to see if it works and at this point I’m quite skeptical.
You see, the diet consists of these shakers that say sweet on one side and salty on the other side. On foods like pizza, sandwiches, salads, ect. you sprinkle the salty and on foods like pie, ice cream, fruit salad or yogurt, you sprinkle the sweet. Extra TV host Dana Devon lost weight with Sensa according to this article in Daily Candy.
There are no guidelines about what to eat and when, no pre-packaged foods and no starving. You eat what you want, when you want and sprinkle the Sensa all over the foods you are eating… that’s it!
So, today was Day 1 of using Sensa:
- I don’t feel hungry
- I weighed in at 160 lbs.
- I’m 5’7″
- My upper arm measurement is 13 3/4
- My thigh measurement is 24 1/2
- My waist is 38 1/2 inches around the fattest part
- My chest (under bra) is 34 inches
- That’s pretty much all I can tell you.

I’ll be updating you once a week on my progress with Sensa. I really hope I am able to lose this weight because I’m not happy at all with the fact that I have an entire closet full of clothes I can’t wear…ugggh!
