=======================================================

Happy New Year everyone!

As most women (and some men) out there one of my things on my New Year's resolution list is losing weight. For once I have to say I didn't just start on the 1st of January, I actually started in September with the help of Sensa.
If you've been reading my blog for a while then you know I've been keeping track of both my husband's and my weight loss here.
Initially when we received the product I wasn't sure. It all sounded too good to be true (and you know when it does sound too good to be true, it most of the time turns out to be that way). But not in this case. We've been using Sensa since September and my husband has lost 14.4 pounds and I have lost 22.5 pounds (actually I've lost 34.5 in total and my husband 20.4). We started our weight loss journey as a battle of the sexes but we are really there to support each other and to remind each other to sprinkle!

Sensa was designed to work with your sense of smell to help trigger Sensory Specific Satiety.

The scientific principle behind Sensa is remarkably simple. As you eat smell and taste receptors send messages to your brain which release hormones that tell your body it's time to stop eating. This is a phenomenon we call Sensory Specific Satiety. By enhancing smell, Sensa Tastants were designed to help speed up the process and trigger your "I feel full" signal, so you eat less and feel more satisfied. Because Sensa works with your body's natural impulses, rather than against them, there are no feelings of hunger or intense cravings.




There's really 2 simple rules to follow: make sure you sprinkle all foods and stop eating when you feel full!
It took me a while to get comfortable to sprinkle when we were at a restaurant but now we're used to it and have no problem with it anymore. Now in addition to the sprinkles we also drink way more water then we used to drink and we watch what we're eating, more vegetables and more fruit.

If your resolution is to lose weight then please keep on reading as you REALLY don't want to miss out on this one!

Sensa has VERY generously offered to give away a free 3-month kit of Sensa (no strings attached after the 3 months) but I can guarantee you, you will want to finish the 6-month program as this product really works!

This giveaway is super simple, there's only 1 mandatory entry: add the Sensa blog to your blogroll.
Which means, you can only enter this giveaway if you have a blog!
Warning: When I pick a winner I will check on your blogroll, if the Sensa blog is not on there I will pick another winner.

Additional entries: (leave username, URL link where necessary, 1 comment for each entry)
* let me know what diet(s) you tried and didn't work for you
* let me know how many pounds you want to try and lose
* Follow Sensa on Facebook
* Follow Sensa on Twitter
* Follow me on Twitter
* add my button on your blog
* Blog about this giveaway (5 entries)
* Tweet about this giveaway, once per day
* Subscribe to my blog

The deadline for this giveaway is 2/7/10 midnight PST. On the 8th of Feb. I will pick a winner using Random Integer and will check if the Sensa blog has been added to the winner's blogroll. The winner will then be emailed and announced at this post.
This giveaway is open to US and Canada.

Again, a reminder: make sure to complete the mandatory entry before you enter the additional ones cause when I pick a winner and the comment says "I follow on twitter" and then I check your blog and the Sensa blog is not on your blog, your entry will not count.

Sensa, I can not thank you enough for giving me the opportunity to write about my journey and for this giveaway!!!
"Disclaimer: We were sent 6 months of Sensa to try out and to write our honest opinion. These opinions are my husbands and mine and can be different from others. Results will be different for different people. We were not compensated in any other way to write this review"

A better question is which diet HAVEN'T I tried. I've tried Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, and Jenny Craig. Jenny Craig was the only one I quit right away, because I hated the food. Nutrisystem worked for me, but I couldn't keep it up because of the expense. Weight Watchers I did as a teen and I lost 15 lbs, but I gave it up after a while because I didn't have time for the meetings. Atkins allowed me to lose 25 lbs, and I really liked their low-carb muffins, but I got pregnant after that and didn't restrict my carbs so the weight came back. South Beach helped me lose 50 lbs after baby #2, but then I had some stressful events in my life and put back 30 of those lbs, and then I got pregnant with baby #3, and here I am, needing to lose 50 lbs again. ;-)

I'd absolutely love to lose 50 lbs, but at this point I would be thrilled to lose even 30. I would feel a lot better.

I actually haven't tried too many diets, but I've read lots of diet books and decided they sound too complicated. I've read and reject the South Beach diet, Atkins, the Fat Smash diet and lots more. The only thing that has ever worked for me is daily calorie counting, and I'm just too lazy to do it for very long.
