WitsEndHI replied to Breakdown25's response:
All I can say is that I understand your frustration. The only way I have lost any weight in the past has been through a VERY strict holistic/natural way of eating, which included cleansing, no gluten, no sugar, nothing artificial. My diet was VERY restricted but I felt great... unfortunately it's hard to maintain. When something happened like moving and/or getting married I gained it all back. But I plan to go back soon!
Good luck!!!

I know how you feel, and was fed up with trying to loose weight, I tried just watching what I ate and exercising more but it just wasn't helping.... My DH looked great tho! Anyway, I decided I would save 20 dollars and find a diet supplement in that price range so I could afford it, I was willing to try ANYTHING as long as it didn't have caffeine because caffeine gives me the shakes pretty bad. the first thing I found was Slim Quick, they have with and without caffeine so I tried it and I Love it. I went from 270 to 230 wow, I just realized that is 40 lbs not 30... cool...anyway, it may not work for everyone and I doubted it would for me but it did so here I am recommending it to you...
