Monday Linky Party: My African Mango Experiment

So how has your Monday been? Mine hasn't been too bad. I am proud of myself though, for exercising! I don't want to jinx myself, but last week I exercised 3 days out of the 7 and I am hoping to do the same this week or even bust that up and do 4! Why all the exercise? Well, I have been thinking for a while now I really want to shed some kilos. I am not after much, I don't like being greedy as its not in my nature, but 10 kg is all I am after and I have been trying to lose this for about 3 years now. My story goes like this. I work hard and I lose a kilo or two then the next week I gain some, then I lose, then I gain, and then I gain, and so on and so on. Some days I get upset about it and others I think I should embrace the figure I have. The thought or idea of embracing what I have lasts all of a day or so and things go backwards when I head to the shops to try on clothes. In most shops I am in between sizes, so too tight for some regular sizes and to loose for plus sizes, lucky me hay!!

Anyway I recently took some time away from work and decided that I should take advantage of this and get myself into shape. I thought of all the ways I could go about it and then I heard an ad on the radio about African Mango pills. I first came across African Mango last year on a blog. I researched it but it wasn't readily available in Australia. I decided to wait and see if it would make the shelves of my local health food store, then that way I would know if it was legitimate or not. So after hearing this advertisement on the radio I checked the health food store last week and sure enough there it was. It cost me $35 for a months worth of pills. Since I haven't been able to lose the weight I figured I would try these to see if I could actually lose weight and also to see if these pills do work. I believe I am a good example of what a lot of women go through. I have had 4 kids, I worked part time for the last 3.5 years and I have not been able to lose the extra kilos I slapped on with baby number 3 and number 4.  I tried Lite n Easy, but that didn't work for me. I spent 6 months at the gym last year and while I do believe I got fit and toned, my weight pretty much stayed the same but at times the scales showed a weight gain, which I do believe was muscle, but still it didn't make me feel good. I am not always a good eater but lately I have been a lot better and feel that it should make a difference. So, now with the aid of a little more spare time to exercise, and the trial of the African Mango, I might see some changes? Well after week 1 my weight has stayed the same!! At least I am not gaining, but I am eating well and I am exercising, and if I get anything at all from this trial, I hope to be able to get a lifestyle of eating well and exercising regularly. Anyway, I will post throughout the next couple of weeks. At this stage I have a photo of my starting figure (body shot) but I am not feeling up to posting it right now. I am hoping to post it perhaps at the end to show how I have changed - if I have!


Interesting things you should know about African Mango is that the ingredient is actually not from the flesh but rather the seed and its actually not a Mango, it just looks like an unripened mango. Make sure when purchasing African Mango, that you purchase it from a reputable source and that is has a high concentration of the actually African Mango seed, otherwise its not worth it.

Have you tried African Mango or another diet pill to lose some extra kilos? If you have a diet story or are also working hard to meet a weight goal, then join in on the Melting Moments Linky Party. This week I am co-hosting for Melting Moments, but its still part of the Meandering Monday Blog hop too. I love reading everyones stories and recipes, so please spread the word of the Linky party and be sure to check out Kaz and Ang's blog.

If I stop eating (or seriously cut down) on refined flour & sugar I loose weight. If I eat as much as I like to of those things, I gain. Nothing else has ever worked. I'll look forward to hearing how your trial goes because I love breads and sweets!

Have never heard of African Mango seeds.
I think the key to losing weight is eating properly. I've just started a 9 week challenge and I'm hoping to lose 8 kgs. I'm just going to start eating cleaner and plan out my meals a little better. Just basically cut out crap!
