I’ve had several people ask me here recently why I even considered taking OsoLean. I have always been tall and slender and have not had many weight problems throughout the years. However, I’ve had 5 babies…gained and lost 35-40 pounds 5 different times in a matter of 7 years. At the time I had each of them, I did not watch what I ate very well either. Now I didn’t go crazy, but I rarely skipped dessert after a meal and I had a soft drink once a day. Not horrible, but not great either and when you’re used to wearing a size 4 and 6, a snug size 12 doesn’t feel so great.
Before I got pregnant with my last child, I had been working out pretty regularly and was feeling good. I was starting to see some of my muscles revived. Every time you loose weight you loose 50% fat and 50% muscle, then when you gain it back, typically it’s all fat. So, I had lost a lot of muscle through these pregnancies and hadn’t really stuck to working out with young kids one after another….I was exhausted! So, with the last pregnancy I continued my workout routine up until around the 8th month and I was feeling pretty good. No real problems.
Once the baby was around 6 weeks old, I knew I wanted to start shedding the ‘baby weight.’ Typically I would start cutting out carbs and really watching what I ate and this always worked but I did not want to loose any more muscle. I wanted to shed the fat without shedding the muscle, and since I know and trust Mannatech I decided to take OsoLean.
What it did for me was helped me feel full and satisfied and not want to snack as much, while giving me good nutrition for my body. By the 5th month, I had lost 16 lbs and 14.25 inches and was back down to a size 6. Now, that may not seem like a lot but on a tall thin person the weight is more evenly distributed so it’s harder to tell. Many people I meet are shocked when I tell them how many children I have.
Now, I just watch what I put into my body and I exercise. I take some of the best supplements on the market you can find and I have gone to an almost gluten-free diet, eating mainly fresh fruits and veggies with lean meats and fish, occasionally a little red meat. For dessert, I stick to gluten-free too. I am completely satisfied and don’t feel like I’m missing out on anything. It’s almost freeing once you can rid yourself of the processed foods.
So, here’s to you and your health. Remember, take care of your body, it’s the only one you’ve got!
