My Journey With Sensa

Patricia Bradley Life 15 Comments

First, I want to say for the record, I don’t own stock in Sensa nor am I being paid for what I write about the product.

sensaBut for months now, every time I watch television, I see this commercial with these bikini-clad girls sprinkling white powder over everything they eat, and of course they are model thin–I did say they were in bikinis, didn’t I? (And don’t worry, you’ll never see me in a bikini!) And they’re advertising this product that is guaranteed to help you lose weight. There is a 30-day free trial that only costs shipping and handling.

So…I thought, what did I have to lose? Sensa doesn’t mess with your metabolism or anything else about your body, it just helps you to feel full a little sooner. Of course the skeptic in me liked the free trial aspect. ‘Cause I really didn’t expect the product to work.

Most of the time when I tell people I’m trying Sensa so I can lose weight, they will look at me and ask why. Because I’m about 15 pounds over what I’m comfortable weighing–it makes my heart beat really fast when I have to bend over and tie my shoelaces. So I went to their website and tried their offer. Now, I’m not going to tell you how much I weighed when I started Sensa (You wouldn’t believe me anyway) but I’ve been using it for 3 weeks and I have lost 4 pounds. Now that doesn’t sound like much compared to some of the claims I see on other products, but hey, I figure I didn’t put my weight on in a week, and I’m not taking it off in a week.

The first time I decided the product might actually do what it claims is when I went to a local restaurant where I usually clean my plate. I come from a background where I Mom always said, “There’s lots of people in the world who would like to have that.” (Mom would always point to whatever I didn’t want to eat). “Now finish your supper.”

There are two containers that you sprinkle from: the sweet side and the salty side. I sprinkled from the appropriate side and began eating. Halfway through, I was full. And I quit eating–took the rest home(all those hungry people, you know). I think that’s the key to any weight loss program. Stop eating when you are full.

According to Dr. Alan Hirsch who was featured on the Dr. Oz show, Sensa enhances the smell and taste of food. I don’t know if it does or not. I do know I’m not eating as much. And I’m eating whatever I want. Like this hot fudge cake.hot fudge cake And I didn’t even eat half of it.

Stay tuned as I plan to do at least one blog post a month on Sensa and let you know if I continue to lose that 15 pounds. And leave a comment and let me know if you’ve ever tried to diet. Have any tips?

      You will probably be one of the first to see the difference. lol Thanks for stopping by. And you, my friend, don’t need it.

    Are you serious? You’re willowy slim. We’re good friends but I’d be smart not to stand next to you in pics. Now, are you also saying there’s a writing gift intensifier that when sprinkled helps us say more when sprinkled on our words. I’ll have one of each of those, please, for weight loss and word loss (but increased effectiveness.)

      Oh, yes! Dee, how I wish there were a Sensa for writers…that would enhance the brain and let the words spill out. And I want to emphasize that I don’t want to lose much weight…with the additional pound this week, making a total of 5 pounds since I started, I only have 10 more to go and will be much satisfied with 8.

      What I’ve learned is you have to follow your stomach. When it says you’re full, stop. lol. Sounds simple, but it isn’t. Sensa seems to be able to help me do that.

    My hubby gained weight on Sensa. He said it made food taste better so he kept eating. It’s not so unusual for him. Prescription side effects tend to be opposite for him, too.

    Pat, I’ve never tried a product of any kind to lose weight. The only thing I’ve tried other than medical/health restrictions on my diet (food intolerances) is tracking my caloric intake. Doug got me into this. When he tracks calories, the pounds melt off him. They slowly crawl off me, but they do crawl off. There are lots of websites that offer free calorie tracking, but this is the one we use: https://caloriecount.about.com/

    Oh, and I think you look fabulous. You don’t need to lose any weight, but I do know what it’s like to not feel so great when you bend over, so I say, “To good health!”

    I use My Fitness Pal when I’m counting calories, but with Sensa I haven’t been counting. Just eating less. And thank you very much for the compliment…being tall helps hide the bumpy stuff. lol

    WOW! That’s impressive!! I’m always skeptical about these products….the side effects! But this sounds like a good deal!! ! Will consider getting some!! Man oh man, the older I get, the harder it is to get the pounds off….but easier to put them on!!!! Thanks for the info.
    I do wonder if knitting could be considered aerobic exercise??????

      Of course, knitting is approve as an aerobic exercise! And until I turned #@, I could lose weight by laying off deserts for a couple of weeks. No more. Glad you stopped by Peggy!
