  • I tried them "all" off and on over about 14 years and none of them worked. Then I found the Suddenly Slim program by First Fitness. I lost 60 pounds in a little less than six months and have kept it off for four years now! You can read all my post in my group here on CafeMom... Suddenly Slim Moms.

  • I have not and will not ever take a diet pill. Will power, watching what you eat and exercising will work....everytime.

  • OTC pills dont work. Get yourself to a bariatric dr. (yes, the ones to help very over weight people also help those who need to lose 10 to 60 lbs. too). its safe, and any decent dr. will tell you that you can watch what you eat all day every day for the rest of your life and still be heavy. its YOU, the way your body works....and yes, you can get fat on salad.
    so look up a dr. in your area and go see them. youll get some pill that will help you (really) lose weight and a B12 shot in the arm to boost your metabolism.
    you will lose weight, feel good, have energy without the crazy caffine in OTC pills...and then, if you need to tone up...do some sit ups.
    i lose about a lb. a day but i do need to tone up, so i try to do sit ups after my busy day. if not, well...so be it, im no pam anderson...but i feel good and i have time and energy for my kids. im not wasting time at curves doing some goofy round robin workout thing. good luck
