Food and Weight: An Ongoing Journey

Archive for the ‘Product Reviews’ Category

Most folks who read me here know enough about me to know that I dress primarily for comfort. As such, over the years I have generally eschewed leggings. It’s not that I don’t like them per se – I’ve spent too many years in dance and yoga classes to ever say that. However, I generally didn’t find the kinds of legging that were easily available to be comfortable or convenient. I mean, come on, they didn’t even have real pockets. If anything, they had what looked like a pocket, but was just some fancy pretend pocket opening, sewn together and with no pocket inside to catch things like your keys.

Well, I have seen the light. A friend of mine, Rosalie, is selling leggings​ for a company called My Legging Craze. You can buy these legging from her website, or you can look at her Facebook page, Rosalie’s Legging Craze, or you can host a party with her as your stylist.

Their sizes run true to size, and their leggings come in a wide variety of sizes: from kids leggings all the way up to women’s 5X. They are wonderfully soft ​and wonderfully sturdy. I own about ten pairs at this point, along with a couple of their dresses and tops. ​the bulk of their leggings are in the $20 to $25 range, and their dresses, tops, cardigans and kimono-style​ jackets run a bit higher.

Now it’s really enough that​ they have a great product, but the thing I like best is that their consultants are more than willing to go the extra mile to make customers happy. I had one pair of leggings that had a small hole in an indelicate spot. I mentioned this to Rosalie, and she asked me to email her supervisor with a pic of the hole. I did so, and within 24 hours the piece was being replaced. Further, the supervisor checked back with me after I had gotten the replacement to make sure I was happy with it.

SO, for their great product, and superb service, I am giving a shout out to My Legging Craze, and​ hope that you all decide to give it a try. And if you do, I would love to hear about your experience in the comments!


NOTE: I received this product as part of a product test.

As most of you know, I’ve been in cardiac rehab for most of the summer. This product is designed to help people with their workouts, so I figured I would see if it had an effect on mine.

Branch chain amino acids are essential in building protein in muscles. The contents of this particular formulation of branched-chain amino acids includes L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine,and L-Valine. What makes it different from many other formulations though is what it doesn’t have. Completely vegetarian, it excludes additives, artificial ingredients, binders, eggs, excipients, fillers, gluten, preservatives, soy, starch, sugar, or wheat. The serving is two capsules, and the recommended times to take this supplement is either 45 minutes before a workout, immediately after a workout, or between meals. According to the packaging, they can also be taken any time the body needs an extra fuel boost.

So, did I find it had an effect? Yes, I did. I had better recovery times from my sessions, and even seemed to have more energy going about my day – although I am still nowhere near where my brain says I should be, but I know that recovery from open heart surgery is not just a six-month quick thing.  Still, I am making progress, and I honestly can say that I feel this product has made a positive difference in that progress over the last month. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
