Let me tell you about this Garcinia Cambogia

This may get 2 notes, this may get 100,000. I’m not sure. But do spread the word to ANY of your followers about this.

You may have seen on your dashboard about Garcinia Cambogia, the “miracle weight loss supplement”. The site it links to claims that you can lose up to 20-30 lbs in a month while taking this. Also, it says they were giving out “free trials” of it plus a cleanse. Well guess who was convinced to buy it? Me. Was I pleased? Not really.

I ordered my bottles about a week ago. And what do you know? They arrived on time like they said. I was so excited because I was finally going to lose weight. After taking it, I did feel pretty good (not like a high feel-good, but a healthy feel-good.) and i sort of ate less (note: sort of). It has been a week now. Guess how much weight I lost? Maybe a pound or two. I didn’t get it. I am overweight while others who weight LESS THAN ME claim to have lost 5-10 lbs in the first week.I weighed myself everyday and it has been going up and down. This morning I weighed at 199 lbs. When I started I believe I was 202, water weight not included. But here’s the thing: I measured myself last night and all my measurements were basically the same as I started with. Was I really losing weight? Who knows. Did it make me feel healthy and cleansed like the site said? Yes. So what dissatisfied me? The money.

Now I understand the mistake on my part where it said it was a trial. But guess what I discovered this morning? They took $90 out of my debit card. I was fucking furious. I didn’t know what to do, so I called the number on my bottle. Thankfully, the wait was short and customer service was extremely polite (thank goodness I’m polite as well). The lady I talked with explained that The “trial” was for 14 days and if I’m not satisfied, I could return it for a full refund. If I didn’t then I would have to pay them the money for the supplement.Now I had two options: I could keep the only bottle and only get 50% refund, or I could return it as soon as possible and receive a full refund. Does my weight REALLY matter? Am I at a high risk of anything serious? No. So immediately, I packaged the bottle back up and I’m about to mail it back out.

I told my mom EVERYTHING, tears running down my face, and THANK GOODNESS she wasn’t mad. So please, to everyone out there considering buying this product:

Yes the product is real.

It sort of works (at least for me)

The money isn’t worth it.

Again, it’s a TRIAL. But if you want to lose weight, don’t buy it unless you’re willing to spend $100.

Overall: It isn’t really worth it. Don’t get your panties in a bunch about it. If you want to lose weight, do it the healthy way by eating healthy, cutting calories, and exercising.

PLEASE, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD.

You are beautiful no matter what size you are. I understand it’s hard to believe that, but it is true. Paying for this isn’t worth it. If you do want to buy it though, just pay for it at a vitamin store or Walmart or somewhere so you don’t end up paying more money than you thought like me.
