My husband and I just got prescriptions yesterday and started taking the pills today. Both of us lost 60 lbs 3 or 4 yrs ago and due to a variety of reasons, we've gained almost 40 of it back. We lost the 60 just by exercise and cutting back on our eating. I've never believed in diet pills and never thought it was a healthy thing to do, but our health is being affected by our weight and hard as we try, we have just not been able to get back on track. I know most of it is a mindset and we're hoping that seeing a drop on the scales using the pills will get us back motivated so that we can go back to just eating right and exercising. I was glad to find here that most have had success. I"ll check back here in a few weeks and give an update on our progress. Thanks everyone for the info!
