I am totally against taking pills for appetite suppression. WE are responsible for what, how much, and how often, food goes into our bodies.
"But its SO HARD"! Of course it is! I got very hungry, had slip ups, but GOT RIGHT BACK ON THAT HORSE. Losing weight and getting more exercise is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life, and that includes having cancer and undergoing 2 years of reconstructive surgeries for its after effects.
The sense of accomplishment from controlling your food eating behaviours and achieving your goals is well worth it, though. To know you did it on your own is a priceless boost to your self esteem.
There is a big difference between desire to lose weight, and a DECISION to lose weight. We all have the desire, it is when a firm, committed decision is made, that success begins.
Decide. Then do it. You fall, you get back up. Put one foot in front of the other, and start today.
