Ok here's a little of my story.. I gained almost 100 pounds during my pregnancy (long story) and I have already lost 50 since I had my son 19 months ago.. I have tried just about every diet imaginable. Slim Fast, Special K, Mayo Clinic Grapefruit Diet, some diet pills that should be illegal (they aren't FDA approved and were given to me by some doctor in Hawaii), and I have tried just counting calories and exercising.. Nothing seems to work. Now, when I was 16, I lost 50 pounds in 3 months and within a years time had lost a total of 65 pounds, within 2 years time, a total of 80 pounds. I'm only 21 now.
I exercise at least 3 times a week and I am trying to stick with this 6 Week Body Makeover that's supposed to be based on your body type.. Thing is, I only lost 1 pound in 3 weeks. Before the holidays I had lost almost 15 pounds (on the 6 week diet) in just a couple of weeks and gained a few (about 5 to be exact) back during Thanksgiving and Christmas. I was thinking about trying Alli, but I remember when it first came out there was some undesirable side affects. Has anyone tried Alli? And if so, did you have the nasty side affects? Also, I was wondering what are your secrets to losing weight?? I can't seem to get these last 50 pounds off of me and it's driving me INSANE.. I wanted to surprise my husband when he comes back for R&R in about 3 months, but it doesn't look like that's going to be possible.. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
