All kinds of diet pills. The only thing I lost was the money I spent on them!Gotta change your mind set, or nothing works.Doing that now.And Have had more luck with changing my attitude about how I view food, writing about my shortcomings,and talking to others that are going through the same thing.This has helped drastically.The change in attitude, and weight has been nothing short of amazing!Knowing that I CAN enjoy the foods I LOVE,And include them in my new lifestyle in smaller portions, and frequency,has Totally changed my "diet" mentality!"Diet" is just another 4 letter word to me now!

To be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit ,and set the best example for them, so that my children will be too. That's what I aspire to., to be the best ME I can be!

the road to weigh loss is long and up hill all the way . in fact , It if a life long trip . one that doest end until the day we draw our last breath . If we are lucky we can be a weight that is healthy. we have to move to control our life's . we need to be in good spirits and laugh . life is not lived by food alone but the whole scope of things that make us the whole . no easy way . if it is worth doing then live it well . laugh more . at yourself first and then at life . emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon

There is no quick way to lose weight and be healthy.

If I put the whole list here, you guys will think I'm a total nut job:

1) In the late 60s, the doctor gave me diet pills (before they removed the "speed"), and I had these experiences where I'd be up in the corner of the ceiling "watching" myself work at my desk. Stopped those, but not before I had a small blackout and hit a parked car--last thing I remembered was the intersection and two kids on bikes, car was in the middle of the block.

2) When I got over 200 for the first time, I went to a clinic and did the liquid fast, under doctor's supervision, for three months. I only lost 50 lbs on 300 calories of liquid a day!

3) In college, I signed up at the gym for those wrap thingies--and used to go get on the Fridays when I planned to go out. Until I rehydrated, I looked really good in jeans SEVERAL sizes smaller. 8-)

4) By 1988, I weighed 325 lbs and was getting dangerously close to 40--so I had a weight-loss surgery (Mar 89) and did the first permanent dye job on my gray hair.

As they say, "first liar never has a chance" 8-)

The Cambridge Diet was a 400 or so calorie/day diet popular in the early 80s. Lost a good bit of weight, it tore up my stomach, the doctor told me to stop it, and I gained all the weight back, and, eventually, much, much more.

At age 20 I tried diet pills when I worked for a diet doctor. Lost 30 pounds in 30 days and made myself very sick. Never again.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Tried to eat 100 cals per meal and 50cals per snack, making that 45o cals per day. It soon left me exhausted and tearful.
The longer healthy route for me now.

I will NOT run emotionally from compliments and hide in fat layers for protection.

The list is long and so was the bill. There is no fast way for me anymore and I am grateful to have finally woken up.

One of the silliest things I did when I was young and even more stupid was to drink 1 calorie diet soda and that was all I had for the day. I got very sick and couldn't drink it again.

Many of us at one time, or many times, have tried the quick way to frustration! Pills, belts, silly props, "thinking thin", etc.

What have you tried in vain, instead of doing it the right way by living a healthy lifestyle?
