My Big Fat Revenge-Getting Married

The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of the Oxygen Network.

I remember the day my husband proposed to me. We were apartment "shopping" trying to find a perfect place for us to live. I remember looking out over the 3rd floor balcony, when I heard him call my name. "Jen" was all he said. I turned around and there he was on one knee holding a box in his hand. He asked me to marry him, and slipped the 1 carat diamond ring on my finger. It fit perfectly. How he knew what size I wore, I have no idea, but it fit. At the time he asked me to become his wife I weighed around 230 pounds. He never once harassed me about my weight, and even after we got married, and having 3 kids, and weighing close to 400 pounds, my husband NEVER ONCE said anything negative to me about my weight.

I'm trying to imagine what would have gone through my mind if in this same scenario, I turned around and he had a ring and said to me

"Jen, I won't marry you until this ring fits your finger." And "this ring" being a ring that he bought that was PURPOSELY bought 2 sizes too small.

That's what happened to Hillary and on this weeks episode she's going to show her ex exactly what she lost out on.

We're also going to hear from Pardis. Pardis' boyfriend harasses her about her weight and she's going to demand an apology from him before she commits to starting a life with him.

If you haven’t caught the new series My Big Fat Revenge, it's on Oxygen and will be airing every Tuesday at 9pm, catch a sneek peek of Hillary and Pardis'  below: Hillary Pardis

Raspberry Ketone – SD Pharmaceuticals

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out some supplements from SD Pharmaceuticals.

About SD Pharmaceuticals:

SD Pharmaceuticals is the Cutting-Edge, Ingredient Company. The Research Team at SD Pharmaceuticals only produces the most sophisticated ingredients and formulas, and those which are clinically validated in human research studies. If there isn’t any solid research behind an ingredient, then SD Pharmaceuticals’ researchers won’t use it! That’s what really distinguishes SD Pharmaceuticals from every other sports supplement company out there. On top of that, SD Pharmaceuticals only uses the most potent forms of every ingredient available, which includes pharmaceutical-grade synthetics and exclusive standardized herbal extracts.

I was sent the following items:

  • Dendrobium 600 – used to promote the health of the stomach, kidney, and lungs
  • Diindolylmethane – used to help maintain healthy hormonal balance in the body and support overall well being
  • Garcinia Cambogia – used to support healthy serotonin levels and reduce appetite
  • Green Coffee Bean – used to support fat loss, provides healthy antioxidants and reduce weight
  • Raspberry Ketone – used to inhibit fat accumulation, increases calorie expenditure, and increases fat breakdown

The cool thing about these products is that SD Pharmaceuticals provides information on how to stack these products together for optimal results.

After reviewing these products, I decided that I was most interested in the RASPBERRY KETONE supplement and felt it was the supplement that would help me the most right now. I am currently working on a major fat loss "project" with a nutritionist and this supplement seemed to parallel what I'm doing with her.  Therefore, my review is solely for the Raspberry Ketone.

I started taking it on the same day I started my #eattoperform diet developed by WBFF Bikini Competitor Theresa Depasquale, Tuesday September 17th.

What is Raspberry Ketone?

Raspberry ketone is the main aromatic compound found in red raspberries. It’s a natural phenolic compound that has health-promoting antioxidant properties and can also support fat loss!

How does it work??

Research shows that raspberry ketone can improve fat loss through multiple mechanisms of action. It has the ability to support a reduction in fat absorption and support a boost in calorie expenditure and fat breakdown.

Having lost OVER 200lbs without the help of any pills, etc., I wasn't sure how I felt about a pill claiming that it would help with fat loss, but I decided I'd go in with an open mind and give it an honest go.

I take ONE pill in the morning when I eat my first meal of the day. Guys, I kid you not. In 6 days I lost 12 POUNDS! That's HUGE. Keep in mind that I totally revamped the way I was eating my macro's, and went from grazing on fruit all day long to eating NO fruit, and having 5 structured meals per day.

12 POUNDS!! I told my husband about it this morning and he said it was impossible, and I don't know if it's fat loss, or water weight, or what, but all I know is that I lost 12 pounds. And that makes me happy.

Do you take supplements?? What type??
