what a waste!

Go ahead and say it " I told you so", those weight loss pills made me so dizzy and I gained 2 pounds back. I stopped taking them as of today. What a waste of $175 can you believe I thought they were going to be the answer to my weight issue. The answer to that is excercise and stop eating like a pig. This morning I walked 2 miles right in my living room and yesterday I walked a mile and a half. This has to be a lifestyle change for me not a quick fix.
We are getting ready to go on a field trip to the historical museum with Ave's girl scout troop, the kid's have no school today. I have some shopping to do at Costco. Tomorrow Avery has a girl scout badge ceremony/potluck and after that the cancelled camping trip is back on so I will be pretty busy. Have a happy Friday:))

what were you taking? And what did they promise to make you pay that much money? Sorry to hear that it was a waste! Too bad we did not live closer, I love walking I would be there with you everyday and out we would go. I can walk for hours!

Sorry to hear they didnt work! It really is all about a lifestyle change. Change the habits we have ourselves stuck in a rut with!

I have tried some before and the third day my heart was racing so fast I almost had to go to the ER. Scary stuff!

Have a great busy weekend!

I won't say I told you so. You gave it a shot but it didn't work and now you will try something else. We all know what the answer is but do we pay attention? We know it's simply a matter of burning more calories that we take in. But it's not so simple. There are so many tempting things out there. There are so many things to make our lives *easier* when in reality it's making our live *lazier*. You go out to eat and they give you a serving size that used to be the size for a family of four. It's all about choices. Making choices to eat healthier, and move more. I hope you find what works for you.
