I had GBS in 98, I went from 264 to 149 lbs as of today I am back up to 227. I tired all the over the counter diet pills, plus some that I brought online. I tried all the things that Dr Oz talks about as well but nothing is working. has anyone else had this problem? I can not find a Dr or site that has any answers. I joined a gym and go 3 times per week but the weight is not coming off. I am getting very depressed and I am back to not looking at myself in the mirror. If anyone has any answers please let me know via email.

Hi Christine0255, not to be rude, but...

Where in the world are you getting your information? Where ever it may be, are you sufficiently convinced, now, to never, ever go back?

A pedometer is a simple tool that count steps. You place it in your pocket when you rise in the morning and you leave it there until you sleep at night...

  1. A pedometer measures your total activity, daily, including whatever you do at the gym.
  2. A pedometer gives you credit for exercise even on days you don't go to the gym.
  3. A pedometer makes you accountable.
  4. A pedometer provides trustworthy & reliable information (no bulsht, half-truths or he said-she-said garbage).
  5. A pedometer sets a target for you to strive for, everyday, and when you accomplish your goal you feel good about yourself.
  6. A pedometer never lies or spares your feelings.
  7. A pedometer will help you rebuild your body from the ground up.
  8. A pedometer eats only an occasional battery.
  9. A pedometer will never give you excuses like, "Not today...I've got a headache".
  10. A pedometer will remind you, "Hey, you didn't give your fork the day off, so, let's not give us the day off, either."
  11. By using a pedometer, you don't have to trust anyone, again (not me, not Dr. Oz, or whatever worthless sources you been getting your information from)...just, yourself!
  12. A pedometer puts your belief and self commitment to the test, everyday.
  13. In the end, the pedometer reveals who you really are...

Gradually build to 10,000 steps/day and repeat, rain or shine, 365, for the rest of your natural days. Good luck, christine0255!
