I wish 12lbs was a weekly thing.I say alot of that was water weight,I have to take water pills two times a week,which I didnt take those for 3 mths.
As for a weekly weight loss I would say mine average around 2 to 4 mainly 3 pds alot.Bryan lost over 30 pounds taking these he has his own post going.
I am not saying Z3 is the main reason why I have lost weight nor is it not the reason I have lost.
I can't say all I did was take the pills and the weight came off no I had to get my lazy butt off the couch out of the house,start working out,watch what I eat.I think as with anything else its all up to how much hard work you put into it.I was so mad at myself for gaining weight this winter.
I cut out the snacks, the sugar, the fried food,fast food,eating late at night,drinking coffee all day and night,before I started this I can not tell you the last time I had a glass of water, now I drink it all day.I never thought well I could take this pill and do nothing else and the weight would come off, I read on here for awhile and took notes and did what alot said they did,They made changes they knew they could handle and stick with,example I enjoy my pasta and sugar in my coffee I knew Atkins wasnt for me,so I started cutting back, then I started using Splenda.I started doing 30 minutes walking,20 minutes tae-bo,now I walk 2 miles a day with a group of moms,workout on hubby's weight machine,swim,ride bikes with the kids,yardwork,I like doing morning work outs with Denise Austin, I have a few of her shows I taped and I pick one a day to do or I do a taebo work out.I got burnt out on taebo so I change it up daily.My thing is out of that list I have to pick 3 a day I have to do.I think it all comes down to how much effort we put into it.I was so PO when I seen that word Obese go into my medical file I would of been better off if a stranger would of walked up and slapped the chit out of me.
I do take carb cutter,I also have some carb & fat cutter also I take depends on the meal.Being overweight makes me depressed I dont know if anyone is like that and the doc wanted me to take a pill for it and guess what the side effect was, weight gain, HELLO I am blonde but what will that do make me happy about being over weight,it was some of the nurses that day that told me they were taking Z3 and they thought that is what I should try and I am happy I did.
I have gone on long enough
I think it all boils down to the person and how much they really put into it.Good Luck everyone.
