Slimina Capsules and my ongoing journey to lose weight

My quest to lose weight has led me to try a new slimming capsules.  These slimming capsules have been recommended to me by my then twenty-one-year-old daughter who claimed that her friends who were obese and or nearing obese lost weight from taking this slimming capsules. 

And so I purchased one bottle from online in Lazada PH since they have an option of COD (Cash on Delivery) but I believe you can purchase Slimina directly from their dealer  Magic Potions website.That way you can be sure that you are buying the authentic Slimina and not a fake. I paid more or less Php1200 for one bottle of Slimina.  A bottle contains 30 capsules and is good for 30 days to be taken 1 capsule 15download to 30 minutes before breakfast.  I started taking mine April of last year. And it really did help me with managing my weight.  I was 82 kgs. when I started but after just a month of taking the capsules and with a little diet, I weighed 69.5 kgs when I weighed myself after taking the last capsule in the bottle. Folks, I’m not paid to say this (although I wish I had since I am writing good stuff about their product 😉 ) but the capsules really did make me lost weight.  It did making the dieting easier since apparently taking this lessens your craving for food.  At least mine did.

I won’t go into details of the ingredients since you can research them online but Slimina claims to have pure herbal ingredients which are probably better than other slimming pills and capsules that contain some illegal drugs to help repress the appetite.  Anyhoo, the bottom line was that I lost a lot of weight from then on.

I don’t take them every month, though, just to be cautious.  I let my liver and kidneys and other organs rest for a month or couple of months from taking Slimina.  Also, what I have discovered is that, somehow, when I take slimina for consecutive months like I did after my first bottle, I got immune to the slimina.  My appetite gotdownload-1 back to normal although I didn’t gain weight significantly even if I pig out while taking the capsules, I decided to skip a month before starting on another bottle.  It’s good for my pocket too. The downside I felt while taking Slimina is getting a dry mouth. Drinking lots of water is a must. There are some side effects others have reported but this is the only side effect I experienced.  It is also a must to consult a doctor, especially if you’re suffering from ailments and taking medicines.

By the way, I also have reviews on other over the counter slimming pills and weight loss management brands like  Fitrum and Optrimax Plum Delite Review.

I’ll be updating this review with before and after photos.  I am still chubby, mind you, but not as huge as I was before. And until now, even with taking Slimina, I am still trying to manage my weight. Diet and exercise are still the best way to achieve them, and I’m working on my self-discipline to follow through with a better and healthy regimen.

 

Vaginoplasty and labiaplasty: from someone who’d actually done it

I confess I did it. And I did it for what others may perceive to be shallow reasons. It proved to be the best decision I made last year and never regretted it for a minute.

Folks, I got five kids. Yes, FIVE! That’s how many they are. The last one was born through Caesarean Section. It wasn’t for lack of trying to push my baby out, though. My one and the only boy got his umbilical cord around his foot and leg and he was curled the wrong way; and so every time I tried to push him out, he went back in. And I was getting older at 36 and didn’t have it in me to push some more. I guess my age just got me on this one hence the CS. The point is that although I may have four (still quite a lot) vaginal births, I had also strained my muscle walls from attempting a vaginal birth of my son. And I must admit that aging, multiple vaginal births(no matter that your OB patched you up real good after) and lots of sex throughout your married life ultimately affect and weaken and changed my vagina appearance. Yeah, I know about Kegel exercises, I’ve been doing the exercises since in my twenties until today. Well, it does help tighten those love muscles up but it doesn’t help much with the appearance, does it?

So on February of 2014, I had a laser vaginoplasty. The first time I had sex after the prescribed weeks of no sexual contact was more painful than enjoyable. And there were particular sex positions that were really impossible to do because it hurt like hell. It was like that for a couple of months more. But eventually, man oh man, was the sex getting good. I know, even if my husband didn’t admit wanting me to undergo that surgery, he was and is, enjoying our sex way more than he did prior.

Yes, the procedure is quite pricey, but if you really want something, you’ll find a way to get it done.  I was lucky that I availed of some sort of promo discount of a certain cosmetic surgeon in my country. And I really set aside some money for it too.

I may not have a beautiful body and youth on my side anymore, but the confident sexuality that the vaginoplasty has given me, and years of experience is incomparable. I am way more confident in my femininity and my sexuality now at forty with five children than I ever was before in my early twenties. And you can bet your ass, my husband is reaping and enjoying the fruits of that confidence more so now than he had before.

FITRUM REVIEW

Fitrum Capsules

The holidays had come and gone, I am now back again to this endless search for an effective weight control management to complement my on and off diet and exercise. I have tried dieting and exercise but this stubborn metabolism of mine seems to need a little more push. I had been sweating my ass off the first three-quarters of last year with me jogging every other day and watching my calorie intake and did I lose weight? Of coursecI did! I lost just over 2 kgs. for my nine months of sweat and depriving myself of carbs.

So now after many months of trying weight management aids that failed, I am going to to try yet another one. I just took my first Fitrum capsules little over thirty minutes ago and will be taking my breakfast now. I just bought a 30-capsule box and I’m supposed to take 3 capsules a day 30 minutes before meal and to preferably take them before 4PM (for optimal effectiveness, I think).

I’ll be updating my blog all throughout the course of my taking the Fitrum capsules.

Update:

No visible changes whatsoever.

 

 

Nu Skin/Pharmanex Lifepak’s Review

When I went home to Cebu City last week, my closest first cousin and I had dinner and coffee together and were catching up on news about our lives since we last saw each other. Anyways, during our coffee she told me about this new supplement she is taking. She spoke very highly of this product–Nu Skin/Pharmanex Lifepak and told me that our mutual friends who are also taking this supplement all look and feel great. And my cousin did really looked great.  So naturally, my interest was peaked. I want to try the product so I decided to google the product reviews especially that this particular product costs P3300(Philippine peso)  or roughly around $77 (US dollars) for a 30 day worth of food supplements.  To my dismay,  i didn’t find any review for this particular product. But despite of that, I went ahead and bought this food supplement anyway.  I mean, my cousin looked great and she swore of the product’s efficacy. She is a good enough review of the product for me anyway.

Pharmanex Lifepak Food Supplement

You're to take this 4 caps at the same time

The lack of review of this product made me decide to make a review myself. This is my 3rd day of taking the product and I can’t see or feel any changes in my state of wellbeing. I will be updating this blog after four days since I’ll be making an update every week for a month.

On my 5th day of taking Pharmanex Lifepak I had a severe allergic rhinitis. I’m not saying my taking these vits triggered the allergies I’m just noting that my taking the vitamins didn’t in any way lessen the effects of my allergic rhinitis.

 

Oct. 2 – Week 1

Today is my 9th day of taking the vitamins and I noticed that ever since I started taking them, I have regular bowel movement and I don’t feel as tired and sleepy as I did before taking the food supplements.

 

October 10 – Week 2

I don’t really have anything to tell. I can’t see any changes at all. I still look the same. My skin didn’t get any clearer and my appetite is still the same. I must say that I survived a whole week without taking puffs on my seretide inhaler without a severe asthma attack, just some minor ones like feeling slight congestion on my chest. (I was supposed to take seretide puffs 2x in the morning and 2x on the evenings everyday.)

More update next week 🙂

I finished my 1 pack of Lifepak supplements. Although I don’t feel and see any different at all, I must say that I didn’t suffer asthma attacks or some difficulty of breathing while taking this supplements. Considering that I’m not religious with my getting puffs on my maintenance of seretide everyday, I think that is some sort of achievement, and I’m giving credit to Lifepak’s food supplements. Other than my regular bowel movement and lessening of frequency with my recurrent yet sporadic asthma attacks, I can’t see or feel any major difference in my wellbeing and appearance. I mean for the money that I paid for it, I kind of expected more from the product. Like, I don’t know– a miracle, perhaps? Hehe It’s just that a regular, middle income person like me do not shell out this amount of money for just a “regular” food supplement. I had expected something more. My skin didn’t get any clearer and I didn’t look younger than I had hoped I would. This product is good–no doubt about it. But the question is, would I use it regularly? Yes, if I have the money to “maintain” a food supplement as costly as this one. All I’m saying is that this product is exactly what it is–a food supplement. But, there are many food supplements that are as effective but a lot less costlier than Lifepak’s. I am beginning to think that whilst it’s probably true my cousin is taking this food supplement, she is also taking something else that made her look great– a beauty secret that she didn’t share with me.

Optrimax Plum Delite Review

So I had just eaten my first pruned plum tonight. I drank two glasses of water after because they said that’s what I’m supposed to do. It may not be on the written instruction of the package but my dealer advised me and it’s also mentioned on their website and other online blog reviews.  I will be doing a review on this 10-day pack which claims to be a very helpful aid in losing weight. They are marketing this product for colon cleansing, and of course, the magnet that made this so appealing to me–weight loss.

Update:
I had originally planned on updating this review every two days whileI was taking it, but since I had nothing to report I just didn’t bother. I don’t know why my experience was so totally unlike other blog reviews. Maybe it’s partly because most of the bloggers who reviewed this product are also sellers. I don’t think my colon was cleansed since I didn’t experience anything extraordinary with my bowel movement. If anything, I noticed I had even lesser “output” (for lack of a better word) while I was taking it. I just didn’t lose any weight. I weighed absolutely the same after the 10-day intake of plum as I did before I started.  My eating habits didn’t change before and during those ten days too. The only upside I can say about the product is that I kind of liked the taste of the dried prune.

It was just a waste of money for me. My  php1,200.00 down the drain with nothing to show for it. Perhaps it’s just me and my stubborn metabolism. Perhaps I should have continued this Plum Delite regimen for a month then I could have lost some weight. But then again, perhaps it would have been more of my money wasted.
