    In my young and middle age years I was always in plus size clothing. I did get discourage from time to time. I kind of got tired of worrying about my size. Then I was compelled about 5 years ago, to research about other health issues due to a dear and loving family member I was taking care of. That's when I discovered what real foods were all along. The first thing went was a long time of drinking Mountain Dew. Then I discovered sugar drinks weren't the only thing that puts weight on. Eating GMO foods mostly process and frozen. When I eliminated theses so called foods, that's when an amazing transformation took place practically before my eyes. I don't regret, and I don't crave or hunger after any of it no more.

    I think most americans are entirely too obsessed with weight control and appearance in general they will do anything to get to the weight they think they need if dosent seem to matter as long as they get what they want regardless of the health risk this obsession is slowly killing them and they simply do not care most of these people are women who think they have to look like the latest movie star or singer but most do not care that they are born with certain genetic traits that are prevalent in their blood line and no amount of dieting and weight loss programs will not work no matter how many pills they take or how many healthy foods they deny themselves I have known people in the past who thought if they took the latest diet pill they would lose hundreds of pounds and kill themselves because of an obsession the best policy is to just accept the idea that appearance is not the most important thing its the persons attitude that matters and if you cannot believe that you are hurting no one but yourself

    I just watched a BBC documentary "why are thin people not fat" interesting experiment they did . according to the science some of us are just destined to put on weight at a much higher rate for reasons out of our control .

    I got those expensive pills. I had a foot injury and I have a lapband. It said I didn:t have to exercise, I did it over 4 months. I lost a whole 10 lbs and I am mobidly obease. I have to exercise and cannot get moving and my doc I have not been sensible. I did great for years excercising every day. We moved to the country, no gym. I broke a couple bones so I tried the pill. After all it said I didn't have to exercise. I took for monthsl And we eat differently out here and indulge. So I am mobidly obease and I ordered Zumba but PT said it was too hard for me. Well I have a few years left and I will start walking on the treadmill I own and doctor increased my anti depressent and I am waiting for Motivation.

    Most diet pills are sure to check with your doctor before trying any.the best way to lose weight is healthy food choices and exercise. It doesn't necessarily have to be like pushup and curl up just keep yourself moving

    You can lose weight without the aid of a meal plan from a company making money by telling people that eating their crappy diet bars can drastically change their lives. Excersising, as simply as walking 30 minutes a day everyday, combined with watching what you eat, cutting back on soda and sugar, can make you drop pounds fast. People have begun to get a little lazy these days and have decided that making healthier decisions is a lot harder than subscribing to a money wasting diet factory that's not completely guaranteed to help them lose weight. Doing it naturally is a lot healthier.

    The best way to lose weight is watch the intake of calories - people overeat and take too many calories in daily.

    Not being able to stay away from foods you know are not good for you or from overeating is often much more than a lack of will power. It is often a real addiction that is a lot harder to stop than you might think.

    The reason I did not make dieting as a New Years resolution as I was already on one when New Years rolled around. I have been on Weight Watchers since July 2014 and am now down 63 lbs. I have 48 left to go. Nutrisystem also worked very well for me in the past. My Weight Watchers is my future. It's been amazing for me. Life changing for the better in every way possible. It's just what I need healthwise : easy, tons of positive encouragement, a healthy lifestyle (including exercise), and something I can stick to for life. I will be wtih WW forever. After done we go into the maintenance phase and become lifetime members and no longer have to pay. Its not enough to take it off, I am going to keep it off this time. :-)
