In my desperation to lose weight fast last year I turned to diet pills.
I was eating like a woman possessed. Rich creamy curries, pizza, sausages, puddings, chocolates, creamy cocktails. I was out of control. So I asked my doctor if I could get some diet pills. My doctor was reluctant, but I was persistent. What a disaster! I take full responsibility.
I knew it was DUMB to take diet pills as I’d tried them before in my 20’s.
I remember many a midnight spring cleaning adventure, high as a kite. Feather dusters were a bluster and hoovers found their way into every nook and cranny of my house.
But this time was different. No rush, no boost of energy from the diet pills – nothing. Except ugly scars!
This is my left arm. I have these sores on the backs of my hands, all up my arms, on my legs … they’re disgusting.
And I did this to myself in a vain effort to lose weight fast.
Heed my warning. Diet pills are dangerous, addictive and can scar you permanently.
I did a little reading on the diet pills I was taking and this is an excerpt I found:
Below are some of the side effects of XXXXX:
- feeling restless
- high blood pressure
- changes in sex drive
- difficulty in breathing
- dryness of mouth
- chest pain
You may also encounter other side effects like irregular heart beat, nervousness, stomach cramps, nausea and skin rashes.
XXXXX over doses have serious consequences including death. Symptons of XXXXX over doses include excess energy, tremor, increased breathing rate, confusion, panic, excess fatigue, depression, hypertension.
XXXXX should be avoided under any circumstances if you suffer from any of the medical conditions given below:
- very high blood pressure
- problem with valves in the heart
- heart disease
- narrowing of blood vessels
Even if I’d researched the diet pills I was taking before I took them, as desperate as I was to curb my ravenous appetite I probably would have taken the risk anyway. I stopped taking these diet pills 3 months ago and I’m still finding new rashes daily.
Was it worth it? Absolutely not!
Did I experience permanent weight loss? Absolutely not!
Did I learn anything? Yep! I’d failed yet again to lose weight fast. And remember – that was just last year!
This time I’m doing it the right way.
All natural, all healthy.
I truly believe I am unlocking the secrets of how to lose weight and how to lose it forever.
The diet industry is a multi-billion dollar industry. The diet industry doesn’t want you to unlock the secrets of how to lose weight. They have a vested interest in you failing at every diet you try. How many diets have you been on? Me? I’ve been dieting for 33 years. And I’m not dieting ever again. EVER!
I’m educating myself on what it means to eat a healthy, balanced diet and I am finding ways to exercise that I look forward to and enjoy (oops! if you’ve read some of my earlier blogs you know I don’t enjoy them all!) And this is what I want for everyone out there who is trying to work out how to lose weight and keep it off once and for all.
You don’t need diet pills, or diets or an exercise program that fills you with dread.
Join forces with me, lock arms and let the diet industry know that you don’t need them any more!
