Its really hard for me to lose weight. Benn trying all kinds of things! Cabbage diet, The Not Eating Diet , Atkins Diet..NOTHING! Ive joined a gym, and worked my butt off but after 6 weeks, I gave up. The ONLY time I have lost weight was being pregnant with Adeliya! Only time!! No joke!!
Well, I saw on Oprah and NBC News and all that about a new diet regime. Acai, pronounced Ah-saw-ee. Well I ordered it and am waiting patiently for it to arrive. Should be here today or tomorrow.
Im very excited about it. I cant wait! I am hoping to lose some weight, I dont even care if its 5lbs!
*sigh* I dont know why its so hard for me. My mom lost 30lbs, and rubs it in my face about it. I want to lose weight to be healthy! Im about 210lbs. Ugh! That number disgusts me. Its easy for both my sisters to lose weight, but why not me?
Well I cant wait to get my new pills! Im acutally excited about it. I guess DF saw the twinkle in my eyes when I asked him if I could get them. He was hesitant about it because he didnt want me to get my hopes up. I feel like the only way I am going to lose weight is that rubberband in my stomach.
it's hard to lose weigh, no doubt about it. I've been in your shoes -- I have tried a kazillion pills, diets, everything. For the first time in my adult life I'm at a healthy body weight. I've never been able to lose weight till now.
Everybody is different and some things work for some people and not for others. I know for me it was just eating a lot of salads, and exercising a LOT. But I hope for you that these work and jump start your weight loss!
Good luck mama -- no matter what, you are a beautiful and smart woman. Never forget that you are more than just a number on the scale!
KUP, and stay here in the YM forum -- there's some great support and advice here!!

I really hope this diet works for you Melba. I know I've had a problem losing weight since I turned 28. I never had a problem with my weight all of my life. I could eat whatever I wanted and never gained a pound until I hit the age of 28 and went through a rough time, ballooned up to 240 pounds and had a hell of a time getting the weight off once I realized that I let myself go. I lost 50 pounds and managed to get down to 195 before I got pregnant and then when I was pregnant I ballooned up to 270. I've worked my butt off since I stopped breastfeeding in September and have managed to lose 93 pounds. I'm down to 177 and I couldn't be happier. I have completely changed my lifestyle. I eat well but only 2 meals a day. I don't deprive myself from food. If I want a cheesesteak I will share one with DH but I will only eat half. I exercise my butt off 6 days a week. I'm working very hard to get down to 155 by July.
