I have been genetically blessed with a pretty healthy body and active metabolism. But I realize in looking back that I have often tried to "eat" away my stress, and it has been those times in my life when I have gained weight. I have never even probably been in a truly "overweight" range according to most charts, but 150 pounds on my 5'6" frame did NOT look good! I have been up that high a couple of times, and each time have been able to reign it back in. The major change came in around 2005 or so when I hit 40 and realized my weight had yet again climbed to about 148 pounds, not to mention the fact that I felt absolutely awful due to the onset of IBS and my poor eating habits. I completely changed the way I ate and began working out on a daily basis, and quickly lost over 30 pounds. At 115, I was a bit too thin so I gained back to a range of 120-125. In 2009 under a lot of life stress, I gained back 10 pounds which puts me at the 130 pounds I am currently schlepping around! I have been trying to get back to 120 for over a year now with no success! Now at age 45 it has become almost impossible to get the scale to move and on top of that I have had to return to work after 15+ years as a stay at home mom, and I have injured my back in a way that has really changed my life. Nevertheless I am determined to keep fighting the good fight and am determined to see 125 and then 120 on that darn scale again someday soon!

    My daughter says they have one in the waiting room at her doc's office. Brandon got a variety pack of coffees with it. I was surprised to find you can even get teas for it. There was one tea in it, an English Breakfast from Celestial Seasonings. I made it. BEST CUP OF TEA I'VE EVER HAD! I'm getting me some!
