Re: Need advice on dietary supplements?

I have never used a diet pill nor would I...the best dietary supplement you could use to lose weight would be good old fashioned diet and excersise. These pills are truly just a money making gimmick. You do not need them to lose weight, all you need to do it work at it and not give up. Make healthier choices and be active, and you wont need to rely on some magic pill! Look on the internet for tips on healthy eating and recipes...give that a try before you start thinking about (money wasting) drugs!

I'm 5ft6 and a half and would love to be 120 but it's so hard to get there for me too. But, you are at a healthy weight because at 100 lbs, 5ft is healthy, then for each additional inch you add on 5 pounds. So in your case 5x8=40, so 100=40=140

For me: 5x6=30+100=130

I currently weigh 126-128, which is exactly your quota cause we are both about 8 pounds from the same type of goal and I think it's virtually impossible unless I diet all my life and I hate always being hungry so I'm going to be happy where I am. However, I felt prettier at 120, but I was probably subconsciously thinking beauty was like what most AMericans envision, like toothipick models for example.

Yah, I went down to 122 lbs then gained some of it back after dieting, like only 4-6 pounds but still, I would have to eat a very low cal diet to maintain that and I was always hungry. I'm on birth control too so maybe that's why I'm always hungry.LOL

Avoid the pills. Most are useless, some are dangerous.

I wear a size 5 jeans and I'm on ortho trycyclin low, meaning low estrogen. I can fit into some 6's too, but remember I'm a little shorter than you. And yes, I'm sick of the yo yoing at that weight, it's soooo hard to maintain. I think our body needs more fat than you think. I was at a size 4 at one time, oh and I could fit into some 3's.

LOL, I don't have any boobs either lol. I swear, it sucks, but hey that's the way God made me right? LOL, boo hoo. Anyways, ortho is fine with me, but I do feel hungry alot. Why don't others like it? And Now I only weigh myself once a week, well I try to, lol. And I know how you feel about tight jeans. The number I'm fixed on is 122 cause I didn't feel self conscious when I wore my hip huggers without any fat hanging over my hips. My hips are my problem, not my stomach..I guess it's due to childbearing and nature wants us to be this way, LOL. Or else we starve, LOL.

I live in Pittsburgh and have a 2 year old daughter and her name is Miranda. I also love Old Navy jeans. My favorite ones though are lei. This is a good board, and there is alot of knowledgable people on here. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask if not, I'm sure we will be communicating one way or another again on these boards.
