I've always been an advocate of the traditional way of losing weight -- diet and exercise. I delivered our third child through emergency C-section 9 weeks ago and I gained a whopping 66 pounds, which was the biggest weight gain out of my three pregnancies (I went from 120 to 186). I gradually lost weight during the first 6 weeks while I was recovering from childbirth and delivery. However, I reached a plateau at 150 lbs and never went lower than that. I was a size 2 before I got pregnant, so I have to admit that seeing the 150 lbs not go down was somewhat depressing, even if I knew that I will eventually lose more pounds later. After I got the go signal that I could start exercising, I started to gradually get back into my normal exercise routine, but skipped many of the abs exercises because my incision would still hurt when I do crunches. I exercise 6x a week, at least 45 mins a day but barely lost any weight. I only lost 1.5 lbs in 2 weeks of diet and exercise and I wasn't very happy about that. I used to lose weight faster than that with my diet and workout regimen. So, I bit the bullet and started to do some research on NATURAL weight loss pills. To make the long story short, I bought this particular brand at my local Walmart store because the cheaper "Spring Valley" was out-of-stock. This was more expensive, but I bought it just to give it a try. Well, here's the verdict: I started taking the pills last Saturday, May 25th and I weighed 148.5 lbs. I did go to the gym last Monday morning and did my normal interval workout on the ellipticals. By Tuesday morning, I weighed 147!! I really did not expect that, especially when I have barely seen those numbers go down the past couple of weeks. I did not get to workout yesterday because I was out and about, but I still took the pills as instructed. This morning (Wednesday), I weighed 145!! I have only been using it for 4 straight days and I have already lost 3.5 lbs!! I hated to admit it at first, but this product made me a believer!! I have read in some forums that you have to try to use switch up brands of Raspberry Ketone so your body won't get used to it. I bought different brands from Amazon and I will try to alternate those pills and see what happens. I am finally excited to step on the weighing scale every morning!!
