Drink soup to lose weight fast

I’ve been putting on quite a bit of weight around the waist and tummy.  Thanks to overeating and not exercising at all.   But I’m not too concern about those extra inches.  If I really want to, I can actually lose them in days. 


I skip dinner for a couple of days and just drink soup.  No rice, no other dishes.  Just clear soup with some vegetables and maybe a bit of meat.  It kills the hunger pangs and I get some nutrition at the same time.  Easy peasy.

DIY sushi mat earrings holder

Use a sushi mat!

Well, what Stef did was she bought a big sushi mat, hung it up in a clip hanger and then put all her hanging earrings on it.  This way, she not only can access her earrings easily but she’s also able to place a couple more of these mats in her wardrobe without them taking much space.

In my earlier article about wild yam creams, I mentioned that I would rather seek alternative treatment than accept the synethetic estrogen or progestin prescribed by doctors under the HRT.  This is because there has been a lot of reports regarding serious side effects such as breast cancer, heart attack or stroke risk on women who have used such pills.  And most recently, this was confirmed by a French study.
