From what the women told me, the doctor gave them a needle in the ear to suppress and also some pills. They really dropped the weight. They told me it was very inexpensive.

The two colors I mixed were fuschia and eggplant to be exact lol Get bored at work so I experiment lol I just face framed with the pink and kept my espresso hair color. This is me --> Click the image to open in full size.

Its the boredum at work that makes you hungry,even if you are really busy, I think its your body's way of saying you need to retire and have a life of leisure lol
hahahah! LOL I could get used to a life of leisure!! Speaking of drinking water - I refilled my cup earlier and reached over and knocked ice and water all over my desk!! I had overtime slips for the guys and training records - everything was safe - but wet!

I am going to ask my doctor about it and check with my insurance too! I like the pink! It is very fitting on you!

Rachel, I have gained about 50 pounds in the last 4 years Jay and I have been together. Actually I gained it the first year and a half we were together. My doctor put me on Metformin. It's a small dosage, but it's what diabetics (type II) take. Did you doctor recommend this?

 

 

I also have hypothyroidism....and take synthroid.

 

 

There is something that starts with a "c" that curbs appetite...it's a natural supplement. Ugh, I cannot remember what it is, but it works SO well. Actually it works on cravings, you take this and you don't have them anymore. Crap. I will keep thinking.....

Actually Martha, I'm on Actoplus Met (which is basically metformin with some other drug combined). He has me doing that with the Bontril (or phed....something or other that I typed above. LOL) I don't even want to admit how much weight I have gained in the last 7 yrs. It's so sad. sad.gif I have a lot of weight to lose and I'm confident (at least right now) that I can do it.

Are you still taking Metformin? I didn't ask if that's a med I would be on long term. I know the other isn't. I'm to see him in 3 months to see how well I'm doing. I really really hope it works to help me make the needed changes.

Gosh- it's so hard to reprogram yourself. I used to eat whatever I wanted no worries. I also was an athlete and very active. I suppose once you cut down on working out at least 2 hours a day, the pizza, beer, hamburgers will catch up right? I've just never had this problem before and had someone told me 10 yrs ago I would weigh what I do now, I would have seriously fainted.

Steve is trying really hard to work with me too. Last night we walked to the grocery store to pick up some stuff for dinner (one thing being a watermelon.) The poor guy carried the damn thing back the 2 miles. LOL

omg, rachel, dh would DIE if i asked him to carry a watermelon 2 miles!!!!!!

celina, have you tried brushing your teeth or having a strong mint whenever you feel like eating? b/c things taste so bad after brushing/a mint, you'll be less likely to snack on other things.

LOL Lauren. It was HIS idea. He works out 6 days a week so he was sweet enough to take a break from his normal work out to help me. :) It was funny though- he was using the watermelon as weights while were walking. He kept doing lifts above his head with it. People probably thought he was a freak. LOL

 

Gum is a good trick too. From having a desk job, I noticed I want to snack from boredom. I keep water and gum fresh on hand to help combat that. Gum has been a life saver for me.

My doctor prescribed an appetitie suppressant for me that is called Aderral. It works wonders! I have way more energy and can go all day without snacking and eating between meals. Ihave also been forcing myself to get to the gym more often so I am hoping to start seeing some results!!

I have used the Hoodia patch and found it worked. I know a lot of people think it's bulls**, but it really worked for me the 2nd time I tried. It's a patch that works for 24hrs so you just replace it every 24 hrs.

 

I have 10 days of one pack left = pm me if you want me to send it to you if you want to test it out.

I can send you the info on who shouldn't take it too.

 

A

Right now I'm using SlimQuick. Not sure if it's really helping yet. I'll post again if I find it's good. I just bought the Slim Quick detox kit for 7 days...

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
