Angry Who knows about excel!?

does anyone take excel? Today they tried to get me to buy it. Said it would help with cravings during my TOM. The only thing is I only get my TOM every 3 months. I cant see spending $90 on pills that I would take once every 3 months. But does anyone even know if it works? It was a totally new girl who I met with today and I hated her. She was such a B*tch. didnt day much and only tried to push products on me. I want to complain but I dont know who I should talk to. All I know is I am really beginning to regret joining. I'm hardly losing weight and they used to be good at my center but lately I dont like them. There is only one counselor that I like and she doesnt seem to be there much anymore.

Made my birthday goal on 4/5 (3 days early!!)

for every 5 lbs. lost:

I am using the excel. It have help me in control the hunger and the cravings. I feel more energy that help me when I am doing exercises. Honestly I really like them compare to other brands that makes me feel like I am going to have a heart attack, but I don't see any difference in the weight loss. Before I started using excel I allways lose 3 pounds a week, I bought them because I thought that they were going to help me to lose more weight but I keep losing the same.

Lightbulb Re: who knows about Excel

Hi 30lbsby22. I'm a newbie but wanted to let you know I just started excel today. I will gladly keep you posted of my progress. As for the lovely new L.A staff member, I just try to smile and tell myself it's all about me, not them! I do all my homework and research before purchasing anything so I truly don't care what they have to say about the produts. I go by what others say who have tried them. I've heard great things about excel. Also you can get it on ebay for WAY less money!! I've seen a 60 day supply selling for $40. My L.A. gave me 30% off my 1st bottle which was a great savings as well. I'll keep posting how I'm doing. I just did the fast forward for the past 2 days and today started the eating plan. I'm down 7 pounds.
