When other women are taking Rx to lose weight like prescription weight loss pills? I have always known that I cannot take diet pills because I have a bicuspid aortic valve and I cannot take medications that will increase my heart rate at all. So at a young age I was told, never take any diet pills, even over the counter. They aren't healthy any way. Well it's never bothered me when other's do, it's just something I already know I can't try. Well a lot of ladies at work are taking phentermine and the weight is just falling off of them. My green monster comes out because I fell left behind in the weight loss area because I 'have' to do it the healthy way. I can't get a jump start or anything like they have. And they all have this annoying amount of energy lol when I made a half joking comment that I was jealous they could take it, they all said they were jealous when I learned I had hypothyroid. I do not agree. Thyroid has not helped me lose weight at all and it's a nightmare of crap to get it regulated. Dr appointments all the time, my hair falling out, my weight going up and down up and down. Having my blood drawn like a freaking vampire every 8 weeks.. Nothing to be jealous of. I guess it just bothers me how they brag that they eat whatever and they are still losing weight, while I'm counting points and watching every bite I put in my mouth. I have another friend that has lost 20 lbs on weight watchers and she says that it bothers her too but she knows she is doing it the right way and learning how to be healthy. They all will gain it back once they stop since they aren't changing their behavior. True or not?
