Jello to Hello------Week 1

This post is going to be very personal and hard for me to write but I think if I put it out there it will make me feel like I must follow through. I have GAINED 20 pounds since I had Gabriel. Yes I am bigger now then when I was 9 months pregnant. I am not happy with myself AT.ALL.

I breastfed for 6 months and I could basically eat whatever I wanted and wouldn't really gain any. Breastfeeding also made me hungry all the time. When I stopped, the appetite was still there and I started packing the pounds on hard. Before I got pregnant with Gabriel I had went on a serious diet change and I lost a total of  75 pounds. I am here to tell you I had never felt better. I had allowed myself to get all the way to 200 pounds and I was able to lose all that simply by cutting out soda and changing my eating habits. I felt so good and I want to feel that way again.

Rick hit his peak in March and had gotten up to 300 pounds. We were worried about his health so he started V3, an AMAZING diet pill that curves your appetite, mood, and metabolism. Read about it Here. We were very skeptical about a "diet pill" because we really don't do things like that but Rick was determined to lose this weight and we had heard so many wonderful things about the V3, not to mention it is all natural, so there was no reason not to give it a shot. I am happy to tell you that Rick is now 170 pounds, he hasn't taken V3 in a few months but we know that had everything to do with his extreme weight loss. 

I talked to my good friend Tina Phan who is a big dog in the V3 world and she told me she would give me a months supply to help me start my journey of knocking these 40 pounds out. I am going to document each week where I am at and so far I have taken the V3 for 2 days and let me tell you, I feel amazing. I have more energy, I am not hungry every hour, and my mood seems much more happy! I am loving this tiny pill!

Last night, I asked Rick to measure me so I could know exactly where I am at this point. I hit a huge low when I realized my waist is bigger than Rick's. AH. What a letdown. If that isn't motivation to kick this weight off I don't know what is.

Here is where I am as of now, I will measure again next week and post new numbers. Fingers crossed they are smaller, but with determination and this V3 I know I can do it!

If you would love to try V3 click on my link above. Food (I believe) is the biggest addiction there is and if you are ready to change that and get your life in order and feel better about yourself contact Tina Here.

This is an unpaid promotion for V3. I was given a bottle of V3 for one month to document my experience. All opinions expressed are my own and not influenced in any way.



  1. Good for you Amanda!! I'll be rooting for you while I'm on my own" Stop Being Fat" journey myself.

    PS. I'm jealous of your measurements--that should make you feel better!

    1. Thanks Kristen! And don't be jealous girl... I am big! And I have seen pics of you. You look awesome.

  2. We could be twins lol I too have gained weight since my son was born, and honestly it makes me miserable. My husband is a stick. Seriously, skinniest man ever. It's hard sometimes to not compare myself to him, but I just need to get to a place where I feel good about myself again. I just started a fitness challenge with some friends, where we can earn a certain number a points per day for making healthy choices. I'm on day 3 and I already feel better. (Here are the 'rules' if your interested:

    1. Thank you Crystalyn!!! It is tough but I think you are beautiful and do not need to lose any weight! I will check out the fitness challenge and try and join in! I totally understand about wanting to feel good about yourself, if you don't then it brings your whole mood down :-(

    2. My main problem is that people keep asking me if I'm pregnant! At least once a month some random person will make ask. And I totally look pregnant.. All of my extra weight is RIGHT THERE so I don't blame them lol
