Bouari Update: Inches!

I went in for my first follow up on the Bouari plan today. Going in I felt like I had lost weight but not significant pounds as some people do. But then again I had already lost 30 lbs. prior to starting this plan AND I really suck at eating according to low calorie plans. I do much better with eat these foods as much as you want and don’t eat these foods at all.

So I wasn’t really shocked when she said I weighed in only one pound less than my initial weigh-in. However, I was completely shocked when she told me I’d lost two inches in my waist, an inch on each of my arms and at least two inches on each thigh! What?

I mean I know my clothes were fitting loser and I was feeling more comfortable in some of the tighter shirts and jeans I own . . . but TWO INCHES?!?

Here are my thoughts on this topic:

1. The spray, drops and appetite suppressants don’t bother me in any way.

2. I have not worked out in almost a solid month. And before that I was running two miles a day and lifting weights.

3. My eating habits, especially, with Halloween and some special activities we’ve been participating in have not been stellar.

4. If I could have targeted areas of my body to lose inches it would have been my waist, my thighs and my arms.

I’m not sure how this product works. I don’t know the chemistry behind it or how well researched the claims about it are. And it’s something that we could not afford if I had to pay for it out of pocket – it’s generally several hundred dollars a month. But it works. I’m as big a skeptic as you’ve ever met, and I’m telling you something in this formula causes your metabolism to speed up and accesses your fat stores in order to have fuel to burn. Isn’t that every woman’s (and many men’s) dream?

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…
