Does anyone know of a successful weight loss pill?

I've never tried any weight loss pills because I'm very skeptical and I'm not sure if they would work. I got close to buying some once, but I thought it better to research the idea before compulsive buying. If anyone has encountered some success, I'd be thrilled to hear about it!

I've heard crystal meth is effective, though the side effects are pretty brutal...

Lemme be the first to say it- pills don't work. losing weight is hard work, and it takes self control and discipline. If it was easy, we wouldn't have any fat people.

Very true, thanks for the input -- I think I'll stay away from the meth

I can't believe someone would mention meth-one try and you are addicted and it is very very ugly. Unfortunatley, women get into it for weight loss and end up neglecting and abusing their children and losing everything they have. That is the rule, not the exception. It is an epidemic and very serious, not a casual aside to a request for weight loss pills.

I have found some pills helpful

After having my baby last year, losing weight was the biggest challenge ever! It just stuck to my body! I managed to lose 70 lbs on my own, however the last 10 have been very tough to lose. So I started using NV (I know, totally corny, but it works). The main ingredients are caffiene, which helped to keep me energized and get me through very rigorous workouts. I did lose about 5 lbs and then reached yet another plateau. I stopped taking it and started taking Slim Quick Extreme. I'm managed to lose another couple of pounds with it. I have since stopped taking pills and am now really monitoring what I eat and my activity level. These pills are not miracle pills, you still need to do the gritty hard workouts, they just aid in keeping your energy up and curbing your appetite slightly. If used incorrectly, you won't get any results and can harm yourself. I'm a very disciplined person and only recommend using pills as an aid if you too are disciplined. Again, they don't work miracles, they can help if you've hit a plateau and nothing else is working.

Good luck!

Something that works..

I don't like using them, but about once every 3 months I hit a plateau, and I use TrimpSpa. It probably does nothing and is all in my head, but I swear in using them 1 week I will lose 5-6 lbs, but nothing more after that. I only use them as a kickstart in my diet, never long term. You could probably do the same thing just revamping your workout or diet, but I choose the pills for one week. Like I said...probably all in my head lol.

4/20 10:30 you've got to be joking? Can't you see the sarcasm in the myth statement? And by the way, you don't get addicted if you try something once, are you living in some sort of bubble?

Just Say No

To diet pills. Do you take them for the rest of your life? What happens when you stop taking them?
