As a woman, my weight is always fluctuating. And there are always those times when my jeans get too tight even though I’m eating a healthy diet of pizza and cookie dough ice cream. We’ve all been there (and if you haven’t, please leave now because you are dead to me). But just recently I made a pretty drastic decision. I’m trying the Sensa weight-loss system.
I have always been a pretty big eater. And I do mean *BIG*. Eventually my eating impressed my stepdad so much that he began bragging to people about my freak-of-nature-like ability to consume massive quantities of food. As a high school girl, I wasn’t sure whether I should be proud or mortified that he bragged about the fact that I ate so much. (I opted for proud.)
Being able to sit down and eat an entire pizza by myself was all well and good — in high school. Then, at the end of my junior year, I became very sick. I was constantly in pain and tired and just couldn’t get myself to move. By my senior year (and after being bed-ridden for several months), I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. And just like that, my high metabolism just flew out the window. I was put on more medications than I knew what to do with–various pills to make me sleep slowed down my metabolism, the pills to make me wake up made me crave sweets, and some made me hallucinate, but that is beside the point. So as I struggled with paralyzing pain, I continued to eat and gained a whopping sixty pounds in a matter of a few months. That was when I joined the ranks of those who, like me, fight a daily battle with weight.
Over the years I have tried pretty much everything from Atkins to Weight Watchers, Xenadrine to Hydroxycut, and everything in between. And some of them worked to varying degrees. I even became a gym bum and spent three hours a day at the gym. But the problem is that none of those things will do any good if you can’t control your eating. An hour on the treadmill doesn’t help if you reward yourself with Coldstone ice cream on the way home.
That is where Sensa comes in.
Sensa is created on the theory that it can stop you from eating by tricking your brain into being satisfied, whereas most appetite suppressants attempt to trick your stomach into feeling full. For me, I can eat until my stomach is full and then just keep going. So the idea that something can go to brain and tell it to stop eating really intrigues me. If it does what is advertised, this could be the one thing that helps me get some control over my portions, my eating, and my body.
I debated for a long time about trying Sensa. All of these diet pills, plans and programs always seem too good to be true. And for the most part, they usually are. I’m sure many of you have tried various things to lose weight, as well. This is why I’m offering you a peek into my experiment with Sensa along the way. Hopefully I will have good news to report in the end. And if not, maybe I will have saved you the time and money.
