    weightloss on the move again VERY EXCITED!!

    Hello all,
    I was stuck at 130lbs for three months and getting very discouraged. But over the last week and a half , I have lost 5 lbs!!! I have been walking about on hour almost everyday and using these pills that I bought at a local gas station called mini thins 25/50, 25 mgs ephedrine- 50 mgs caffine. They only cost about 6 bucks.They have been the best thing since i was on prescription diet pills. Also, I purchased these fat blockers at a Dollar Store where I live for 2 bucks and I take 2, 30 mins before every meal. Just goes to show you that you don't have to spend a fortune on expensive diet pills. Anyway I am soooo excited about my progress and just wanted to share with you all. I was beginning to think that I wasn't gonna lose weight no matter how hard I tried, But I am on the move again!!! Good luck to all!

    The only place that I have even seen the Mini- Thins is at convienent stores and gas stations, they were originally a small white pill that many truck drivers and all night drivers took to stay awake. Now they are in a capsule formula and say herbal dietary supplement on them. Do you have a Dollar Store where you live? If so the name of the fat blockers is Natural Wonders, and can be found in the medicine isle. Like I said, I only paid $2 for them and they have been great so far. Good Luck!!

    You really need to be careful about mini-thins. They have been outlawed in several states because they are addictive and can act like the drug speed in your system. When I was in high school I did a lot of, shall we say unwise? things and mini-thins are one of them. Did you know they are one of the main ingredients for crystal meth?

    Maggie,
    They have changed these pills since then. On the front of the bottle it says herbal dietary supplement. Can you tell me the ingredient that is dangerous so I can compare it to the ingredients on the back of the bottle to be sure that what I am taking is safe? Thanks in advance for the info and for the warning also.

    Almost every over the counter diet aid contains those ingredients. What would set Mini-Thins apart from the rest? We all know the side effects from this drug and make the concience decision wether it is worth it to lose the weight, which I have done. I appreciate your concern, but, I only have 5,maybe 10 more lbs to go and they are going pretty qiuck with diet, exercise, and with the help from these pills. Hopefully with a proper diet I can maintain my weightloss once I reach my goal. Good Luck to all, and thanks for ALL the support here.

    Re: weightloss on the move again VERY EXCITED!!

    Please be careful with the Mini-Thins. It's basically like speed. I think it was originally made for truck drivers or people who need to stay up all night (not that those are good reasons to take it). It's also used by people who want to "party" all night because alcohol is a depressant and can make one sleepy. I saw someone had mentioned that it has been changed. I don't know about that but I do know that it is still illegal in some states. Mini-Thins have a very high "dose" of ephedra/ma huang, more so than most of the products on the market. It's probably labeled "All Natural" because ephedra/ma huang is basically derived from plants...they are considered herbal. But some herbal remedies can be dangerous. Those mentioned above can cause your heart rate to increase (and cause cardiac problems) and also cause "jitters", mood swings, and insomnia. They effect the nervous system also, not to mention pulmonary (lung) problems. I'm very happy for you that you have lost the weight that you wanted, but please be careful with anything that has those ingredients in them. Unfortunately, many, if not most of the diet products on the market contains ma huang/ephedra. I'm not saying that they should be banned, but I personally think one should be monitored by a physician if he/she is going to take it (just to be on the safe side). I wish you the best with continued success! <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif">

    I didn't mean to tick you off, I am just saying the amounts of ephedrine in minithins is pretty high compared to other diet pills. All it does is make you wired and your body thinks its energy so you move more. If you chose to take it that is your deal. I wouldn't because i personally don't like the feeling of my heart beating out of control. It(ephedrine) makes me want to puke. Also think of the long term effects on your heart.

    Re: weightloss on the move again VERY EXCITED!!

    Sorry, I forgot something last time. Just because something is labeled dietary supplement doesn't mean it is. The beginning of last century cocaine was used for "dietary supplement". No, I don't have an article on that, just my 98 year-old grandmother's word. And her mind is sharp as a tack.

    maggie,
    Dear, you didn't tick me off. I was simply saying that I was aware of the side effects of this drug and that I wouldn't be using it much longer as I only need to lose a few more lbs. I guess that Mini- Thins do contain a higher level of ephedra, which would explains why it worked so much better than the Metabolite ultras that I was taking. If it makes you guys feel better I will use the metabolites for the remainder of my weighloss efforts. I really appreciate your concern for a total stranger. Thanks guys and good luck to you all.

    Re: weightloss on the move again VERY EXCITED!!

    I gotta go with Maggie here on this one. In high school, Mini Thins were the drug of choice because they were legal basically, (where I went to high school, you had to be 18 to buy them, so we always got the mini thins from the same source we got our ciggarettes from.)You could get that high feeling for partying and for those of us who were honor students who had double the home work load and tests, they were a great tool for cramming as well. They made my chest pound and my scalp crawl. It litterally felt like my hair was standing on end and somone was running their fingers through it. Some people may just have a higher tolerance for that amount of ephedra, I didn't.

    Re: weightloss on the move again VERY EXCITED!!

    these mini pills are indeed for trcuk drivers, to keep then awake at night, they where first called white cross,,, the effect is great, and they are cheap to buy.

    If you stay on these pills no more then 3 months and take at least 2 months off you will be ok, dont take more then 3 pills a day becose if you go behond 100 mg of ephedrine a day it can be dangerous.

    I dont really beleive in fat blocker put if you think they work for you then good.

    Good luck , my girlfriend is stuck at 137 pounds too, we started waling this week 45 minutes each time, yes it great has long has your active it good.

    Good luck to all
