Two years ago, when I joined the Spark People site, I was very decisive about loosing weight. So to help my decision, I decided to take the Hoodia supplement. To my amazement, it did help, and I do beleive it had the real cactus component, because I immediately felt a suppression in my appetite. I lost during that time about 20 lbs. I did try to use Hoodia again, a year later, but it was not the same, i felt nothing except my heart racing, and an increased anxiety. I returned the pill, because obviously they were filled with caffeine, and they sucked. They were from Dessert Burn. But now, two years later, guess what? I gained all the pounds back, and then some, two years later. My schedule was thrown out of wack, I went through a move, and my emotions are as we speak taking the best of me. So what do I do? Eat. It gives me great confort. To lose weight I know that I have to work very hard, to exercise, which i totally don't do anymore, and to watch not necesarrily what I eat, but especially how much I eat. And for me the word DIET just doesn't work anylonger. I hate it with a vengeance. Because I've been on diets on and off my whole life, they worked while they lasted, but they ended at some point, and then the old bad habbits crept back in, and I gained the pounds back unvoidably. Now I want to change something bigger than just going on a diet: I want to change my life style!!!! I don't know how will I accomplish this goal, but I know that just sitting around and talking about it won't do the trick.
