Take  a liquid vitamin (which I am sure you know this)Smile
Put a lot of water in your mouth, allow the vitamin to float in your mouth a few seconds then let it slide back slowly and don't fight it.

Or you can just take a big gulp and swallow it really fast without thinking much about it.

Also next time you can try to get a vitamin in capsule form, which is easier to swallow, imo.

You can also break the vitamin into halves  and take that way....This is all I can think of. It just took me getting older to be comfortable swallowing pills, I use to couldn't stand anything larger than a baby aspirin LOL.

I'm in. I'll be taking the Spring Valley (1000 MCG Biotin). I'll be taking MSM also when I get a chance to go back to Walmart. I think I started taking mine on Wednesday, either way I can't remember, but I've been good with taking them so far. So, I just gotta keep it up.

Ladies post your stats and starting pictures if you like.

This challenge began about 3 weeks ago, but I will consider the start date to be Jan 1st.

So the next length check will be, lets say February 20th. So snap your start pics and chart your growth and see how you do. Remember your results will largely depend upon how consistent you are with your supplement taking and also if you are taking the right supplement for your needs.

Have fun!!!!!!

Veemack- our hair looks very similar. My strands are so darn tangly, fine, and spider-webby LOL.

The image uploader hates me right now and keeps rejecting my photos even when I shrink them.
