My Diet Magic trial/review.............

I have done 3 previous posts on my day to day experience with an awesome new diet pill that is out on the market. I wanted to give my full trial review so that you get the whole just of my experience. Although I had planned to have this up sooner, I believe that now is better than never, right?!

Okay so last week I received a 6 day trial packet from Steven Gray, a distributor for the company that markets Diet Magic, as well as several other great products. I have known and worked with Steve for over a year now and I trust him 100%! He has always given me a strait up honest, no bull, answer on all that I ask of him. So when he started talking about this new product of course I was like okay, here we go again, another diet pill out there. The only difference is that I listened to him for one really major reason.....He will not put his name behind something that he doesnt support 100%.

That doesnt mean that I KNEW it would work for me, only that I trusted that of what he said about the product and the results that his clients were getting. So, like most, I started watching the results he was posting...some were what is expected to be normal and some were an awesome amount. I also read the results and experiences that other distributers were posting about their clients.

I started looking into this product more. Nothing is hidden, its all right there out in the open. Its an all natural product with no jitters and no crashing....yup, I thought yeah right,lol. Being from the group of doubters that I am. I have tried soooo many different programs, pills, contraptions and old fashion exercising, with no real results, so now they tell me that this can and will work for me. HUM......All the products I tried before sounded great and of course regular exerising would be great, IF I had the energy to do so. Hum......

After he posted the results, for I want to say it was 16 clients, I called him and said I wanted the trial packet. I had to have it, I want to try it....no I had to try it. I went through the gammet of questions with him like..What will this do for me....Why should I take it....When will I see results...Will I get jitters since I am an avid coffee drinker....Will I be able to sleep at night....Will I become dependent on it.....Are there any side effects....You name it, I asked him. Then I asked him if it was something affordable, yes I wanted to lose weight, but could I afford to. We discussed the costs and compaired them to the other diet products on the market, both online and in retail stores. They are very compairable in price. Hum.... so, IF this worked for me, then it wouldnt be really any more than what I have been paying for products that I have been using already.

Anyway, I bugged him for a few more minutes then gave him my mailing information and true to his word, he had it in the next days mail. I got mine 3 days later, on Saturday. I had decided that I wanted to do a review for those out there, one to inform them of my experience with a new product and two so that I could have that accountability to my readers. Its always a huge thing for me to be as honest as I can with everyone when I talk about or promote a product and well, I got brave and disclosed my weight, YIKES!!! But you know what, I WILL lose weight so whats there to be ashamed of...I wont be at that point for long right?!

So I started on Monday so that I could keep an accurate account of my daily experiences in my normal day to day life, so to speak, besides I had to get a scale lol, my previous one broke, so it worked out!

You can check out my previous postings on this by going to catagories and clicking on Weight Loss Journey, for the first 3 days in detail.

Steve recommended that I take one a day during the trial, see where I was at the end of it and if I chose to purchase a months supply I could up it to 2 pills a day, if I felt that I needed it. So that is what I did, he hasn't steered me in the wrong direction yet.

Monday after taking the first pill, I personally didnt experience a huge difference, I am a larger woman and figured okay like most it would take at least a day to get into my system before I would actually see any results. I went about my normal daily
activities and didnt think much of it. I got up the next morning and WOW i had lost 1.5lbs with out doing anything at all or feeling anything etc. Hum, I thought to myself, now I am really curious as to what will happen this week!

Tuesday (day 2) really kicked me in to high gear. I got up weighed in, recorded my weight and had about 3 cups of coffee (I believe,lol will have to check my post on that to be for sure, but that is my norm) And BAM, in about 30 mins of taking the pill I had ENERGY!!! I was running around the house getting everything done...we are talking about all house hold chores and then some!

I have a little girl and at the present time I am working from home as well. I havent experienced that kind of energy in ..... well....I can't remember how long,lol. I was estatic at how much I got done, that I had the energy to get it done and I wasnt exhausted. I continued on taking the pills, one each day...Each day was the same, yet better!

Each day I got things done around the house, I got my personal home business work done, I had more time and energy to play more with my daughter and my thoughts were clearer so I was able to focus more on what I needed to, which is a huge plus. One day I got all done and by 3pm I was sitting down reading a book, even took a nap and one day sat down and watched a movie with the little one and hubby...in the middle of the afternoon! I started doing my dishes by hand, because it had rained for 3 days solid and I couldnt get outside to put that energy to use...which me and outside are not usually used in the same sentence,lol.

So you may ask how did I fair each day on weight loss, well, here are my results:

Monday weighed in at 293.5
Tuesday ~ 292 ~ 1.5 lbs
Wednesday ~ 289 ~ 3 lbs
Thursday ~ 287 ~ 2 lbs
Friday ~ 285.5 ~ 1.5 lbs
Saturday ~ 283 ~ 2.5 lbs
Sunday ~ 281.5 ~ 1.5lbs

Grand Total of 12 lbs lost in 6 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here it is in black and white. Weighing each day didnt seem like a lot, but by the end of the week it added up to more than I expected.

My over all thought on this product is that even if you dont need to lose weight, this is an AMAZING product for energy. I had soooo much energy! I got up in the morning and I went all day with out any jitters and I didnt crash at the end of the day exhausted. I got more done, and I was more focused on everything. I was able to get more work, business and home, done in a shorter amount of time. If you have a busy day to day life I HIGHLY recommend this product.

Now I must say real quick, I am not a distributor for this company. Although, I will not say that I wont ever be one....If this keeps up the way I see it doing as far as weight loss and energy, I may do it just to get the product at a discount for myself lol. Also, Steve never approached me to do a review or anything on the product. I asked for the product personally...I did not receive cash payment for doing this review. I wanted to do the review so that you could see what I experienced. I will always recommend that if you are on medication, pregnant or otherwise under a doctors care that you always talk to them before starting ANY "diet" type products. For your own safety, research all that you find out there and look for other bloggers that may be talking about it. See what they have to say...most other bloggers are moms going though the same day to day life experiences and trying the very products that you are looking in to.

I dont want to make this sound all HYPE, but it is rare that you find a good product out there that actually works. It is rare you find an ALL NATURAL product that works this great, much less products that dont have side affects.

Now you must be wondering how I am after I have been off the product? Well in those few days I did change how much I ate, although it takes a couple of weeks to really change your eating habits, your life style habits, if you will.

On Monday I didnt notice a huge difference, just slowing down slightly. BUT Tuesday...well I completely and utterly miss that energy. I had gotten use to it in that short period of time and now I WANT IT BACK! I actually started laughing... I didnt miss the weight loss part of it..I missed the energy. When you have the energy to go about doing things that normally exhaust you and you rarely "get finished" with all that you want to, and then you dont have it, you miss that and it is noticable, not just to you but those around you.

It is a known fact that if you get up and move and do more than you are use to then you will lose weight. If you have the energy to get things done and then realize that you busted through all of it faster than normal and you still have time AND energy to do more, you are more active and you lose more weight. And you are making life style changes at the same time, you move more, you do less sitting, you change the way you eat and what you eat...I found that I craved more fruit, for others you may crave something different, but it is a change all the same. This is what it did for me.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me by posting in the comments (may be a question someone else has as well) or if you rather you can email me at dietmagiclady@gmail.com. I will be more than happy to answer your questions, based upon my experience with the product. And if it isnt something I can answer I will forward it to Steve personally and he will get back to you asap (this I know for sure!).

If you know that this is the product for you and you are ready to get the energy you need and lose some weight then please check out this website "Diet Magic" When you order please let Steve know I sent you! (Not that I receive anything for doing so, I just like to put it out there so he knows where everyone comes from,lol)

My final thought is this...I am getting more for myself! I really like this product and believe that you will too! The only "Con" I have is I should have gotten a months supply,lol.

I look forward to reading your comments. I wish you all the best of success in Your weight loss journey..and if you decide to try this product please let me know! I want to support you as well! If you have been on this product I would, as well as my readers, love to see your results. These days we are all looking for something to help us lose weight and have a better experience "living" not just going through the motions praying for the day to end only to start again the next day, so please come support others and tell us what you are experiencing as well.

Please feel free to share this info with anyone you know that may benefit from this product! Or send them here to this blog to see it for their selves! I would love to have you follow my blog or subscribe by email for further updates on my weight loss journey and other great things that I love to share!

Have an Awesome week!

Day 3.....awesome!

Okay so now we are on "Day 3" of my diet......
This has allowed me to really see a couple of full day effects of the pill. and let me tell you ...... WOW!
Wednesday was pretty much as active as Tuesday. As soon as I got up I weighed in and wrote down my weight, made some coffee and started running. My day seemed to go by so fast and I was able to accomplish so much more than I expected even after knowing I was in for more of the same "energy" as I had on Tuesday!

Again it rained...no outside fun for me,lol, but that didnt mean that I didnt have enough to keep my busy inside. It was a frustrating day to tell the truth. I feel blessed to have those days when things go great and there's no real "drama" with the 5yr old. I was so looking forward to another Tuesday....um that didnt happen!

Since I didnt get much work done online the day before I had to catch up on that, little bit wasn't too keen on that, she enjoyed all the "fun" time we had had and wanted more....The joys of working from home right?! The fact that it rained again and she didnt have outside time, yikes, talk about moody.... I would say that all in all it did help fuel me to do even more to keep her and myself busy.

I didnt eat breakfast though, just more coffee lol. (Not really all that different from others I expect). I did have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at lunch with more tea. At supper I made cornish hens, mashed tators, mac & cheese, creamed corn. Oh yeah and we had peaches. Here is where the biggest change occured!...... I put a normal sized amount of food on my plate and COULDN'T finish it. Now this is where I felt it....I was on the verge of crying, no joke, please dont think me weak. Just thinking of that makes me want to cry now,lol. Jake (hubby) looked at me and asked whats wrong, all i could say was...Im not hungry. He looked at me and realized how important this was for me. He said well good, Im done too. Picked up both of our plates (both still had food on them) and put them away. He put away what remained of supper. Told me that he was proud of me and was there to walk with me the whole way, through this, and to get me to laugh he said well...at least until you are ready to run. I honestly didnt think I could actually not be hungry this quickly only on day 3, but it happened and I knew.... I KNEW! this is working for me!!! People, I love my food, I love to eat, and I am NEVER full, I can and most usually, will always eat until I am hurting! I WAS FULL!
So, I would say that my Day 3 was a good one. I had plenty of energy to make it through the day, deal with an angry 5yr old, have a near spotless house, and couldn't over eat. Now I know that I have a lot more to go. I know that the first week Im not going to break any records in weight loss, but get this.....Guess how much I lost..........
Im down another 3 lbs... to date I have lost 4 1/2 lbs. Started taking the pill Monday and by Wednesday I am down 4.5lbs. that is huge for me. But then the biggest reward is being able to keep up with all the normal day to day house hold chores, do my job, help with hubbys job, and take care of a little one. IF I CAN DO IT.....SO CAN YOU!
I promised that I would tell you what I am taking and I will. I think I could have lost even more had the weather cooperated and I was able to get out side. But Im not a shoulda, coulda, woulda girl, I know I will be out there as soon as it lets up.

I wanted to tell you about a few other things I have experienced since taking this product.... I have found it easier to focus on things, that my thoughts were clearer. I had the energy to get more done and actually focus on things that needed my attention, instead of being all over the place. Im not falling asleep when I sit on the couch. Im not looking for something to munch on. I am drinking coffee because I enjoy it, not because I need it. I am not cooking to feed an army, but rather what we actually can eat as a family. I am playing more with my child. I am getting more work done. I dont have laundry all piled up. IM NOT DEPRESSED! I am actually giggling more. My husband can actually tell Im serious and can see the results himself, and he's supporting me. I feel good again. Yikes, I know sounds like hype, heck only day 3 no way that anything can do that, WRONG! It can and it has. I am a believer.

So that being said, I want to let you know that I will not be posting another update on my weight loss until Sunday afternoon, when I officially complete my trial of the product. This way I can spend more time of course on using my new found energy (yes I love that word, we never know how important it is until we dont have any!). I am going to be out and about enjoying the holiday weekend and less time at the computer. Thank you for coming this far with me and be looking for my final "trial" update....I think I need to go ahead and order a bottle now so it will be here when I finish this set!!!!

Okay so you are wanting to know what it is, right? The name of this product is "Diet Magic". This is an all natural product. I do not feel jittery and I do not crash. (Im even sleeping better at night, instead of waking up exhausted)

If you are interested in purchasing this product to try your self, I highly recommend it, even if you dont feel like you need to lose the weight, the energy alone is soooo worth it.

Here is where you can find out more about it: "Diet Magic"

If you purchase it please let me know! Tell Steve that I sent you!

Now you know my secret. Come back Sunday, to find out how the rest of my week went, how much I lost on a 6 day trial.(although that doesnt mean I will stop posting about my weight loss journey, just the trial part. I will continue to post. Your support means more to me than you know!

You can subscribe to my blog and get the posts sent directly to your email box so you dont miss them!

I wish all of you the best of success! Have an Awesome Holiday weekend!
