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.

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.

 

 

My Mad Fat Diary

A young friend of mine recommended this tv series  My Mad Fat Diary and told me I would enjoy watching the show. And I did. He knew me pretty well, this friend of mine. We both loved the show.  I was pretty down, you see, after the Outlander midseason finale.

My Mad Fat Diary is a British teenage comedy/drama and was probably intended for the teen population and the young adult (like my young friend) and not for a married woman in her late thirties. But I loved the show. I guess I’m just young at heart. Anyway, as someone who is used to watching American movies and tv shows and because English is just my third language, I had trouble understanding the first three minutes because of the British accent. But after that, I was hooked.
And also I just love their soundtracks. I’m going to search and download all the songs from the show.

And as always, I googled this tv series and found out that it was based on a book from Rae Earl’s diary My Fat Mad Teenage Diary. Sharon Rooney is just fantastic as Rae Earl. And Nico Mirallegro, well let’s just say that if I were still fifteen years younger  I’d migrate to the UK just to ask him out 😉

The second season finale was so good I’m not sure I want to watch a third season where they will split up again and hook up with other people. I don’t think I would want a “TO BE CONTINUED” after that season 2 ending.

And because I loved the show so much I read the book My Fat Mad Teenage Diary. I know the story was based on actual events of the life of Rae Earl but I love the show better. The story was okay, I guess. But the abrupt ending left me hanging. It was like a story cut short before the climax and there was no resolution. I know it was a diary made into a book but I expected something at the end. I didn’t even realize it was the last page. It was like reading a suspense story and just before the good stuff, you discovered the last few pages were missing and nowhere to be found.  I know there is a book #2 out there but you know, I guess I just want some sort of resolution or ending in every book I read even if there’s going to be a sequel to the story.
