Weight Loss and Pills

We're approaching the end of April, that means I should be checking my weight loss goal. I have lost weight and inches, but it's nothing dramatic. I cut back on the coffee, which I know was the cause of the rapid weight loss. (Needless to say, I gained much of it back). I'm sure you can imagine what happens to a body when it consumes 24 cups of coffee a day. Can you say FRAZZLED?!?!

This month will be a little different. I'm joining the Y. There are two reasons for this. The first is that the kids are wasting too much time online. As long as we are here, they are in front of the computer. It's not that they're online either. They are content playing solitaire or any other computer game! The other is because I don't want to wlk around here. The bears will be out and about. I don't want to have a run in with a: bear, deer, snake, skunk or coyote. Believe it or not, I've seen a few on the side of the road. They were struck. Anyway, the YMCA has an array of activities to keep me and the kids very active.

Someone recommended diet pills, one being ionamin. It's an appetite suppressant. This particular site says it should be used in conjunction with diet and exercise. Obviously, it should help accelerate weight loss. Being the chicken that I am, I wouldn't take the pills. I like to be fully aware and not be altered in any way. Having The Little One with his autism diagnosis makes me nervous about taking meds-even when they are prescribed. Many people have had success with diet pills, and that's great. I'm not against their use. I don't use them because of reasons I've stated.

Hopefully, the exercise will accelerate my progress. Summer is around the corner and I want to hit the beach!

Good luck with the diet. We don't want to look like Rosie now, do we? Love, The Donald

I can recommend some extremely safe pills that will help you in your quest. I won’t recommend any particular brands; I’ll leave that up to you. First, make sure to take a good multi vitamin. Second, Green Tea Extract is great for the immune system and also the metabolism. Last, see if you can get a nice 500 mg vitamin C pill. Finally, remember to drink lots of water. When I’m on my cut I consume about 3 gallons per day.
