Day 17/Being more me than I have been in a long time!!/Prayer Request

Saturday, June 03, 2017

Mornin' y'all!

emoticon I finally slept pretty good last night, but the night before, goodness, I just could not sleep! So yesterday, I didn't feel my Thrive much at all because apparently you need sleep, LOL. I'm sure I would have been much worse off without the supplements.

emoticon I emotional ate again yesterday and last night. When am I going to stop this!? I know I can stop. For months I was on that all shake diet and I didn't cheat even once, so I know I can do this. I don't know what is going on now that I'm having such a hard time with it. I' am having a problem with PTSD nightmares, and that is making me emotional. I need to get back to the emotional state I was in when I did it. I was fed up with being overweight, I was tired of always failing.... I was a little angry. I don't deal with anger well, and I don't want to be angry with myself. Hm. Must think of another way.

emoticon Happy house hunting!!! So we are looking at houses online to get an idea of what kind of house we want and to let the realtor know as well (we send feedback on the ones we really like). I fell in love with one of them, but DH does not like it. It is quirky and fun and just the kind of house I'd like to live in, but it is not DH, so we will keep looking. We have to both agree on the house or it isn't an option.

emoticon I found the perfect thread for the khaki pants I'm hemming, but I have to wait till Monday for it to get here (ordered it Thursday!). Was hoping it would get here today so I could finish my project and get all my sewing stuff off of the breakfast table! I'm excited to try to hem the pants. I'll have to watch my class again. The next class is on hemming jeans and I've got jean thread (gold) coming in too. Yay! I'm short, so all my jeans need hemming, lol.

I don't mean to go on about my new supplement so much, I know I have though. I can't help it, I wish everyone could feel as good as I'm feeling!! I know it's not for everyone, I completely understand. And several people have asked me if it is something I can keep up. Yes, it is a 'lifestyle supplement' you can take it no matter if you are skinny and in shape or obese and trying to get in shape, it's not for weight loss it is for feeling better and getting all the vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements we just don't get enough of. It does have an appetite suppressant in it, but so far I have not felt the effects of that yet. I feel great though. It's not an energy that is like caffeine, all jittery and nervous and makes you sick to your stomach. I've even taken naps on this stuff. You can relax, you can get up and move, the energy is just there if you need it. It's mostly about feeling better for me.

I feel great! I feel like me again. I don't need coffee, I don't need tea (iced tea for caffeine) I just have energy. It's a 1-2-3 step, but I take a step 4, I added a drink that gives me a boost midday, about the time I would normally take a nap. It does not taste good, I will not lie. But I'm going to try a different flavor this month that I'm told tastes good. I don't plan on taking it all the time, just when I need a boost. I'm taking it every day right now, till I get rid of the urge to nap.

Now let me be clear, I'm not selling the stuff. I can give you a link that if you buy on autoship (you can cancel autoship at any time, but it gives you a discount when you buy with autoship and it gives me a discount if I refer you and you buy on autoship) I get credits toward free products, but that's it. I am telling how this product has worked for me. I'm not expecting anyone to buy it. If you want more info private message me and I'll answer all your questions, but I don't expect anyone to do so.

The thing about this supplement, is they expect you to eat clean and healthy and to work out with taking it. They know that you won't experience the full benefits unless you do. And let me tell you they are right! If I was to have a cup of coffee right now (I add a lot of sugar) I would lose all this energy till the coffee was out of my system. Mainly because I'm diabetic and sugar does that to me. Takes about an hour for the stuff to get out of my system. Yes, I have made that mistake before. But then the energy is back after the coffee and sugar is out of my system. It truly is all day benefits of the nutrition you are getting.

Okay, I've gone on about Thrive by LeVel enough. Message me if you have questions. Yes, you can take it for the rest of your life, and I plan on taking it for a long time. I'm thinking about selling it, but I just don't know that many people.

I have a prayer request. One unspoken, it is not my story to tell. I'll just say we have offered our home for the executive pastor and his wife and 2 year old to move in if they want to, they are going to be in need of a home soon. I've asked DH to open the offer for as long as they need a home, and if you know me at all you know how out of character that is for me. It's all God opening my heart to them. The other prayer request is we are having a hard time with out credit score and need it up in order to even apply for the loan for buying a house. We may have to rent for a year and then buy a house. I do NOT want that, but will if we must. Please pray that God's plan leads us where we are supposed to be.

And, we will be leaving our church home. I'm going to miss some of the people, but the pastor is leaning more and more in a direction we just don't agree with at all. I could not even go to the last sermon series because it was just too new age, been there done that, don't agree with it. I'm open minded when it comes to interpretations of the Bible, but when you add extra-Biblical books and stories... okay, I'll get off my soap box. I'm just so sad because it is like watching a slow motion train wreck and I just can't any more. we are going to find a place to go for the summer and then we will find a church close to wherever we move.

Hope everyone has a super Saturday!!!

    I assume people think you won't be able to keep it up due to price, not that its supposed to help you loose weight. 😕 I know I'm not into it for price. I also don't buy any of the other things daily. 😀

    I hope you get your answer about Glad the Thrive is working for you. I know I am not consistent enough for that. Good luck on finding the home of your dreams.

    Thanks for your blog. You have a lot going on.

    As far as your credit score. Look at the David Ramsey series, he has an excellent getting healthy financially series. Again it is about discipline, and prayer.

    Hang in there, I am so happy the Thrive is helping you feel better. I looked at it and know me well enough that I just have to have my caffein.

    You have a great day, and Happy House hunting!
