Bouari? Heard of It?

Have you heard of Bouari? I hadn’t. And even today as I was walking into the clinic, I didn’t have a clue what they offered or how they were going to help anyone lose weight.

Here is what I learned, however. If you’ve heard of the HCG diet then you’ll have a head start on the concept behind the Bouari Diet plan. Basically, Dr. Bouari worked hard to create a homeopathic version of HCG. While the original Bouari clinics offered the HCG diet, they now recommend their proprietary formula instead. Purportedly, you get the same results without having to inject or injest hormones – many times animal hormones.

So here’s the scoop – I will begin taking the homeopathic supplement this weekend and during the first two days I eat anything and everything I want. No, for real. That’s what they told me. Something about fooling your body into NOT flipping over into starvation mode. Then I cut my calories pretty extremely. I was warned the first two days of low caloric intake will be a struggle, but then I won’t be hungry and the weight will fall all off.

The idea is that your body is trained to burn the fat that it has stored up as fuel.

I do have to admit that it was nice to hear that they didn’t think my goal of 20 lbs. was the best idea as they felt I didn’t need to lose that much! Their typical results are much higher than that, so I may not need to follow the protocols as strictly or as long as others would who are looking to lose more weight. But I will share each step of the way with you.

My first visit was a brief questionnaire, a meeting to discuss the program and my questions, then a weigh in and picture taking session. Today I weighed in at 154 lbs. Here are the pictures they took:

  1. Like you...I have NEVER heard of Bouari...until now.
    I plan on following your progress during your HCG/Bouari diet. Good Luck, even though I don't see why you are dieting, you are thin enough. Seriously!!!

  2. I've been on the Bouari plan for 3 weeks and have lost 11 pounds so far. The pounds are falling off almost effortlessly at this point. I really like the coaches and am not having any difficulty with a borderline vegetarian diet. In fact, I'm finding myself forgetting to add the protein via meats/fish/poultry.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
