This morning I woke up and realized that I have to put an end to this weight gain. I am done making excuses for myself, blaming my metabolism, my stress, my work...everyone but me. I have tried many diets, pills, doctors..you name it.
Yesterday I had to go shopping because my size 14 jeans did not fit.
For the first time in my life I had to purchase a size 16 (and they are tight).
I used to wear a size 2/3 and year after year I kept moving up a size. Finally, size 16, in front on a mirror, and I am looking deformed.
I am 27 years old, 5'5", weigh 210 lbs and at my lowest I've weighed 125 lbs.
This has to stop!
I've been looking at the forums and figured I would post the things that did not work for me in hopes that it helps someone save some time and money during the weightloss process....
My first diet pill (oh I thought I was so cool, finally figuring out this weight loss!):
It helped at the time, while I was working out. dropped a few pounds, kept me in a permanent hyper state...I was young & stupid...and now this pill has been recalled...go figure!
The many more pills that came
Slimquick: more junk
Xenadrine: worked but plateau
Green Tea with Hoodia: junk
Trim Spa: even more junk
Alli: worked but you have to stick to the plan
The diets I tried
Acupunture (w/all protein diet)
6 Week Body Make over
The Best Life
Dr Assisted weight loss
(Phentermine and starvation)
With all of these diets I had a good 10-30 pound loss but was unable to keep it off.
I guess where I'm getting with this is that FAD diets and pills dont work
...don't waste your time or money...stay away from the FAD B-12 shot and Phentermine..its horrible for you...YOU WILL GAIN IT ALL BACK
, and then some...I did it TWICE
I know its been drilled in our brains that it is a lifestyle change....
I think Im ready for that change now...
I will keep you posted once I find a healthy/non miracle eating plan
that wil help me make this change...
