    That is stupid. Our bodies work in strange ways. i do have to admit that i've been trying to drink more water and i have been not feeling like i'm hungry 24/7 like usual.

      Have you done the insulin testing? I don't know what the test is called but you fast then drink some sugary stuff every two hours while they draw blood and wait for you to "crash." I did that last year but apparently I didn't listen to the doctor much to cut out flour and sugar and subsequently gained 10 lbs in a year.

        oh i've heard this too, and you know what i bet that's why ive not been going crazy hungry this last week. i know i never drink enough water, so i wanted to make sure i do this last week before the wedding so i feel really good. but i havent been as hungry either.

          I don;t have any good advice. I am generally leary of appetite suppressants. Coffee usually works for me if I am trying to stave off hunger...Have you increased your exercise lately? That can make you hungry and you should def eat!!!

          I feel your pain on the no-carbs thing Rachel. I try (and fail). Sometimes I have the mental will to do it. Other times I simply can't. Good luck!!

            I've taken some pills before that suppressed my appetite and made me really thirsty (in turn peeing my brains out and losing 3 lbs in a day). I wish I knew the name bc they were given to me

              The only time I did was when I was pregnant. I did some bloodwork in February and my doctor said I was fine. She had me on a prescription weight loss drug - Meridia - but the prescription was SO expensive. ($130 a month) I have also taken phentramine, which works but after a while your body gets immune to it. Actually, I think that is what happens with most stuff anyway.

                I know it's not an "on the market" kind of pills.. KWIM? I've been trying to find more myself so once I do, I'll let you know.

                Another suggestion that I know works is acupuncture. I know two women that did it for cravings and they lost A LOT of weight.

                and thank you! That was taken when I was blonde. My hair changes with the seasons..I have pink in my hair now lol

                  Yes I know what you mean :) Hmmm...I'll have to see on the accupuncture. I have gotten it in the past for a back injury, but it made the pain worse. I never thought of it for anything else. How cute that you have pink hair! Is it sort of like Jess on Rock of Love?

                    All I've ever used is water - it works for me

                    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
