1. Overweight and losing 2. Overweight and neither losing or gaining 3. Overweight and gaining
If you're a #1 or #2, you have accomplished important steps towards reaching your health goals. You have accomplished what no doctor in the world can do for you. You've stopped a serious health risk: unintended weight gain. You've done something you've been able to accomplish only a few times in your life! Isn't that worth at least a pat on the back? If we changed the way we view weight in society, millions of lives could be saved. If each individual went into red alert once they gained a couple pounds, nobody would have a weight issue.
I've read a thousand times the following: "I just love to eat..."
Why is that, so? Why do we think "loving" food is normal? Why do people associate food as entertainment and something to plan and look forward to?
The issue of why you "love to eat" must be addressed, at some point, if you're serious about weight loss, long term, imo. This is evidenced, everyday, on this very board since most members admit, first thing, they've experienced "weight issues their entire lives". I often wonder... Why do they assume they have "normal" levels of desire for food? Wouldn't it make more sense to assume the opposite? That they, in fact, have insatiable, abnormal desire for food? Wouldn't that better explain why they have enormous difficulty in losing weight? And, if this was, in fact, the case, by exploring the psychology of why they "love to eat" and treating that problem, they could eventually find that weight loss is not so impossible a proposition, after all.
Bottomline: There is no substitute for healthy lifestyle fundamentals. There is no controlling the desire to eat "unhealthy" because it's addictive. Addiction (massive doses of glucose) is not "normal" to anyone but the addict, themselves. The understanding of this most fundamental rule of weight loss is far to overlooked and underestimated.View Thread

I recently read a review on Yacon Syrup for weight loss and was looking at getting some. Dr. Oz raves about it, but not sure it's for me. I'm tired of dieting and looking for a real solution. What do you think?
Healthe Trim is a RIP OFF. Garcinia Cambogia may work but not the one's that are sold by healthe trim!! Don't fall for what I fell for buy someplace else. They trick you into a 90 day supply and withdraws the total amount from your account in 10 days, then tell you you're not able to return even the un-open bottles. I filed a complaint with the BBB, I may never get results but I'll do all I can to see that others know of this companies SCAM111View Thread

Back in April 2007, I was diagnosed with Bipolar and I still have not found the right drug cocktail that works for me. Most of it caused weight gain, or headaches or ringing of my ears. I went to a doctor who did not listen to me about the headaches or ringing of my ears or even the weight gain. He was only interested in if I was taking the dosage or not. He did not even give me a mood stabilizer which while I was searching the internet and going on a chat line with other people like myself, this is what they said to me. I could write books about being Bipolar and how people think you are nuts. No, we are unique. We all are, in one way or other. KISS means keep it simple stupid.
Gallbladder removed March 1, 2010 Essential tremors in both arms and hands Obese Asthma Bipolar Diabetic - no insulin (started with pre-diabetes) June 24th - right knee replacement done and on June 23rd I quit smoking with the help of Champix.
When I am manic for the Bipolar disorder, I am awake for about 8 days straight without having any or very little sleep. My home is clean, my dishes are done and I become Suzy homemaker. It is like a light bulb goes off in my head. and WAM, I probably look stoned or higher than a kite. I don't sleep, too restless, but my legs become very swollen and puffy from the shins downs to the little bitty toes. My shins look like I am wearing red socks as there is a band of red around my leg. My legs are very hot and shiny too.
I have been very stressed out, lack of sleep, high energy, and probably caught a chill some how I know I need to get my weight down. But as I age, it seems more difficult to do so. In Canada it cost $16,000 to get the slim band in place, but I would rather use that money to travel and having another operation is not my cup of tea.View Thread
