The lovely owner of the local health food store (who happens to have PSOD), has informed me that there’s apparently a newish supplement called Raspberry Ketone that her doctor is encouraging patients with PCOS to try. She said it’s been featured in a few places but I can’t recall hearing about it before. It’s suppose to help with balancing insulin, increases your energy and helps the body break down stored fat. I hate so called miracle pills but it’s rare to hear of one getting a doctor’s endorsement. They’re pricey but I want to splurge and pick up a bottle. I figure if it works it’ll be worth the price, if not lesson learned. You’re suppose to see results within 2 weeks on 100mg-200mg per day. When I buy it (probably after i buy a new computer) I’ll document it just like I did with the other supplements. I don’t have high hopes but it would be nice if this one actually works for me. I’m still keeping thorough records of my progress with Jillian Michaels’ program so can compare it to what I’ve done so far with diet and exorcise alone.

Spreading the community!
Going without a computer for the last month has been such a pain. I didn’t realize how much I had been relying on this community to keep myself in check. Even though I’ve slacked off on personal posts the last few months I still lean on the Tumblr community for motivation.
Unfortunately it’ll probably be another month before I can get a new computer and I’ve already had to fight off old habits. Obviously something needs to change because with the way people I like suddenly deactivate their accounts I can’t rely on this site forever. Tumblr its self could be here one day and gone the next. I know, perish such thoughts!
I’m going to take this rare opportunity to sit online for a couple of hours to download a bunch of stuff for myself, update my layout, fill up the queue again, and reply to messages. Sorry it’s taken me so long. I hope everyone is doing well.
So far I’m loving Jillian’s program. The routines are easy to follow and if you’ve used workout videos before there are no surprises. The challenge is more in keeping up with the pace. They move through the routines quickly to keep your heart rate up. At around 30-37 minutes long it’s easy to find time for my workout every day.
Yeah, I’m the perfect example of an apple shape.
I’ve put on 6 pounds but I’ve lost at least an inch on most of my measurements, with the main exception being my upper arms. Not bad but there’s a reason it’s a 91 day program. It would be nice if my weight drops back down again by the end of the 30 days but at this point I’m thrilled with the changes in my measurements.
I could have sworn I posted a start up entry but I guess between my computer going (and still being) down plus working overtime it looks like it never made it to Tumblr. I guess I’ll just have to do an extra long review on it. I was considering waiting until I finished week 4 but I might post up a review about the beginning so that readers aren’t bombarded with a wall of text.
If you are losing weight because you hate your body, you need a hug. A body is not to be hated or scorned, its sacred and should be treated with love and respect. Do it because you love and accept yourself and see long lasting results.
Be positive. Be strong.
