      I hear ya sister! It really isn't easy is it? I always assume skinny girls have it easy but they must just keep silent about their suffering :)

      I have heard good things about the plan- a friend used it and said it was tasty.
      Good luck!

        My doctor put me on a pill that worked wonders (Finally -- after trying 3 others with no luck) along with exercise -- lost 15 pounds in 3 months. But I haven't exercised once since March (ugh!) and she won't refill the pills since I've lost 15 pounds ... but it's starting to creep back up -- FAST.

        All this work I did and then fell off the wagon. Tom gets back from Iraq next month and I want to still have the weight GONE. Plus, I've gotta keep it off 'til the April wedding. arrgghh!!

        I am going to be out of town most of this week -- and am focused on getting back on track ... so regular gym workouts begin next Monday -- along with a personal trainer.

          Tami - what pill was it called? I have tried numerous weight loss pills, but they make me crazy, like I am on realy drugs. I grind my teeth, my skin turns all white and my fingers are freezing. I feel like a crack-head. I would love to fine one that didn't make me feel that way.

            I feel the same way, but I get all shaky, my heart pounds and I feel sick to my stomach!!

              Hey ladies! She put me on Tenuate first ... but I couldn't sleep and heart was racing. So, stopped that after a week. Then, we tried Meridia ... but it did NOTHING for me. No racing heart but no appettite change either.

              So, the clincher for me was Adipex (generic name is Phentermine ... the good Phen in the old "Fen-Fen".) No racing heart, sleep good night. But it still worked great for me as an appetite suppressant. I would still be hungry and eat but it gave me better portion control. Coupled with some carido 3x week and minial weight training ... the pounds melted away. 15-pounds in 3 months --fro a size 12 to a size 6-8. Didn't make me crazy but did give me more energy during the day. Not that crack-head feeling, though (like the Tenuate did).

              Wish I could still take it!!

              She says all the pills affect people differently, so don't know if you would take to this one as well as I did ... but she worked with me until we found the one that worked best for me.

              Good luck and keep me posted about what you try and if you like it!!!

                  Oh well thanks, Tami! But I do need to lose a few (hopefully @15ish). I have put on weight since getting engaged and planning a wedding! Isn't it supposed to go the other damn way!! Ugh.

                  Then again, it's so hard to put a number on it, I don't know what I weigh, I jsut know that my clothes are tighter and I am uncomfortable in a bikini, so I jsut want to lose enough that I feel ok again.

                    Same here! I'm not bikini-worthy by any means. I know alot of it has to do with our own self-image ... but I want to feel good about myself when the big day rolls around (not to mention when my man gets home from Iraq next montha dn we reignite the flames!!!) hehe

                      Oh, it is totally self-image. It is a problem that I have always had and have been thinking about seeing a doctor about, cuz it affects everything, especially the sex life. Poor Matt when I am feeling fat!

                      Although I am sure that no matter what you look like, your man is going to be so excited to see you!
