Lost 6 lbs With This and 20 Pan project Update

Hi, Beauties!
I used to be a girl who wouldn't gain an ounce no matter how much I ate.....looong time ago....
Three years ago I've turned to a gal who has to work out constantly to maintain the weight.
Usually I walk (won't lie by saying that I run) 5 days a week up the Mt. Hollywood and do muscle toning exercises in the evening. All this hard work just maintained my weight at 123 lbs. If I stop walking my weight would easily go up to 129 lbs in a week.
But now I'm 117 lbs and maintaining for a month. It's a Miracle! WHY? Cuz I haven't even walked nor worked out last month due to the house hunting!
My diet is in disorder due to the stress and I'm even eating more.

Only GOOD thing I did for myself last month was: I replaced coffee with Green Tea.
I read somewhere that green tea makes the waist tiny and I was sold. I mean, we all heard so many good things about green tea before but idea about tiny waist sounded way more appealing and encouraging!
So now I'm a green tea addict and my favorite is Jasmine Green Tea. I drink 4-5 cups a day. I've added a cup of Black Tea a day after hearing that it prevents breast cancer.
The green tea is really helping with my waist by burning my ugly tummy fat! :)
I'm positive that my new addiction played an important role in my weight loss. So ladies, give it a try. You have nothing to lose (other than inches from your waist ) but have so much to gain (health and beauty wise)!

Now on to my 20 Pan Project Update! Loving this project! It made me save so much money. I used to spend $150-$400 a month on beauty products and I haven't spent a penny since I've started this project in June.

Product #13
Shisedo Sun Protection Liquid Foundation SPF 42 PA +++

My HG Foundation! I'm not panicking cuz I have a back up. I did a review on it HERE

Product #14
Victoria's Secret So Sexy Shampoo & Conditioner

It smells nice and sexy. Decent shampoo. I couldn't wait to finish it so I can start my Tsubaki Shampoo that I hauled not long ago.

Product #15
Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Body Glimmer Swirl Cream in Honey Do

I loved its realistic honey dew scent. Like the subtle glimmer (not shimmer) of it on my arms and legs.
5 More products to go! It was easier than I expected!

Thanks Beauties for reading!
Stay Beautiful!
xoxo

  1. Yay congratulations on the weight loss, and gain in the wallet haha! I actually have tea sitting around, but I just need to drink it more (not a huge beverage fan in general...more of a muncher unfortunately). This motivates me to give it another shot.
    I need to start a project pan project! All the money I'm earning this summer with my first job is flying out the window towards products that are stacking up quickly >_<...

  5. I really do try to replace coffee with green tea, but it's somewhat hard for me. I drink both coffee and green tea. Coffee in the morning and green tea in the afternoon. Maybe I should try just drinking green tea and no coffee. hehe.

  16. Oh interesting! I didn't know that green tea could make you slimmer! May have to try that now! 4-5 cups is a lot! Does green tea even have caffeine in it though? If not, then who cares! =)

    Great job keeping up with your weight! May have to keep that tidbit of info in my back pocket!

  17. Ohhh thats great! Keep up the good work~!

  18. Wow thanks so much for the tip hun! I'm grabbing a thermo of green tea to work tomorrow :) Hopefully it works for me too!!! I haven't been drinking all that much coffee lately, but all the stress has been making me eat a lot more (and a lot less healthier because I had no time to cook homemade meals at home)...I need to finish unpacking soon so I can go home and relax instead of go to work during the day and then go home and unpack/organize the house...it becomes a really tiring cycle!
    And keep up with your good work on Project 20! You are doing so well :)
    *hugs*

  20. My mom drinks ice cold green tea daily and it totally suppresses her appetite. I don't really like the taste but maybe i should just suck it up and drink up unlike my sister mel who hasn't gained a pound in years (so jealous) :) Keep up the great work!

  28. Congrats on losing weight! :) That's really exciting hun <3

    & I used drink green tea all the time because I thought it'd help me lose weight too. But then I was drinking too much or something because I'd start getting caffeine headaches when I didn't drink my daily amount of tea. SO I dont' drink it anymore very much

  29. replacing coffee with green tea is a great idea, i hear coffee is not good for you! and green tea has antioxidants in it that will make your skin look younger longer. Don't know if that's true but that's what I heard! :)
