  • Im not a big fan of weight loss pills, but that is a personal opinion. I would suggest finding a group of women who are all trying to lose weight. Start a pot and say at the beginning of the month everyone puts in x$ and weighs in. At the end of the month everyone weighs in again and whoever lost the most wins the pot for the month. That way you have a support group, make a few new friends, and have an incentive to keep it up when you are feeling tempted to eat wrong or not excersize that day.

  • Weight is a big issue with me. I gained 70 some pounds with my pregnancy 4 years ago. Before that I was not super skinny, but wearing bikinis and not worrying about my size. Right now I am about 30 lbs over what I want to be. I lost about 40 of the baby weight. So, in the past 4 years I have tried EVERYthing. But with this last 30...it wont budge. I am very against the typical stimulant based diet drugs as I have first hand experience how they can ruin your heart. But I did decide to give Alli a try. It does do its job...but you have to stick to their diet plan as well.

    I am now going to try Natrol Carb Cutter. There is no stimulant and its only active ingredient is white kidney bean extract. You can google Phase 2 and get lots of info about it. I am even thinking of using both the Alli and Natrol together. See how the Natrol is alone first tho.

    Good luck!!
