Hi Babbie!! I meant to answer your questions:

"How is your Masters' Degree coming along? Do you have to take a foreign language? You're helping Mother Earth by getting your degree!!!"

Yes! My Master's program is coming along nicely. I wish I were someone who could just be CONTENT in my current role and not have put all this PRESSURE upon myself to obtain a Master's degree. HA! But ... I guess this is something I really must do and that matters to me.

No, I don't have to take a foreign language. Although, Spanish would be incredibly useful for me! I live about 20 miles from the border of Mexico and many of my patients are Spanish-speaking.

I know I am on the right path, and this is something I need to do professionally! My graduation date should be April 2021 ... but I think I may end up taking a break in Nov/December to regroup. So ... my graduation date will likely be a bit later in 2021. That's ok. I can feel myself burning out a bit already - so I need to make sure I give myself a breather!

My mother's 70th birthday is next weekend :-) So I am planning to drive to Arizona to see her. I know she will really appreciate it!!!

Babbie, have you been getting out on your bike? How are things for you? I hope all is well and you are staying cool! I feel lucky I live near the ocean and although it gets warm, I don't have to worry about oppressive heat for the entire summer. I might be crazy to go to Arizona in the middle of August to see my mom, HA!

Have a wonderful Friday! All the best, Vespa

All the best,

I can't believe it is already Thursday. This week I've stuck to my meal plans, had 8 oz of water every hour, done my calendar challenge's workouts. Doing those things makes me feel like I am being honest with myself in working on reaching my personal goals.

This morning was just beachy! Happiness is a day at the beach; heaven seems a little closer there. I built a sandcastle and the waves came but it was fun, too! It's a shore thing to happen! This morning was a sandbucket full of memories with the castles in the sand catching waves and our footprints in the sand telling the story that life on the shore is fun!

Tara, please consider this...simplify your thinking processes by going to "my Nutrition" tracker. You have already put onto your spark account your current weight and the number of pounds you want to loose. At "my Nutrition" tracker scroll down and click on "Show Meal Plans". Then click on "Weekly Grocery List".

Start fresh. Buy the entire weekly grocery list. Set those things attractively on your shelves and Frigidaire. Find pretty plates and cups and glasses to use just for your diet. For the first week simply follow the meal plan you were given on "my Nutrition". After your first week you will be feeling the good changes working in your body. Then go on to do the second week.

Click on the Challenges tab, then on Calendar Challenges. Join The Realistic Resolutions Challenge ~ and ~ The Meta's 30-Day Fit & Fiber-Full Wellness Challenge. Do those every day without fail. I am on them both and will keep you company. emoticon

If you do what I am telling you you won't regret it. Drop everything you are whirling around about and hop aboard a secure landing. Come on, Tara, you can do it.

I'm sorry that you are so frustrated. I get that. However, from what I am reading from your posts is that you have tried various diet pills and continue to look for another one that might work. If that doctor is your doctor and you are talking with him and having a discussion about your health, that's great! But it sounds like you are just looking things up online and I would again caution against that. I, and the other coaches care deeply about our members and don't want people following an unhealthy path. Your recommendation of SlimQuick honestly reads like an ad with how many times you posted about it. It's great that it worked for you, but I think it says something about the product and possibly how you are currently trying to lose weight if you're having trouble, and have gained after stopping it. I am not trying to badmouth any product, but generally, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. With my experience, as well as my education, diet pills are not the way to go and can be detrimental to your health. Looking at some of the reviews about that particular product, there have been negative reviews from various people about side effects (some being serious -- heart issues) and that they gained some weight back after stopping it. I also read that it is suggested to take time off of taking it so you aren't continuously taking it (that seems like a red flag there too). It's great if it helps you specifically, but I still suggest using caution when looking at pills and supplements and that sort of thing. Your health is worth more than these pills and "being skinny."

I do hope that you are speaking with your doctor about your current health and situation. It is concerning with the various things you have posted about, which is why I posted here. You are right, not everyone can do the same thing and see the same results, but when you continually post about pills and weight loss supplements and trying to jump from pill to pill, can you see why there is some concern there? I'm not trying to bash or bad mouth anyone or any products -- it is truly out of concern for you and your health as well as the health of anyone else that may be reading this thread or any of your posts promoting diet pills.

Well Denise I took the time to listen to a Cornell Graduate Doctor something U suggested in looking into you didn't recommend him however he is a certified doctor HUM????Just as I take the time to read what U write.You can't give sound advice w/o hearing what the other person is saying & obviously maybe you should just talk to yourself instead of responding to us on here.He sells over the counter vitamin that he did research on.If I had the money I might give it a try I don't buy on the internet.So if it comes into stores maybe.SlimQuick worked for me so bad mouthing products w/o trying them or people's ads w/o giving them a chance really isn't the right thing to do.I had an ex best friend NOW & she was skinnier than me & asked me to go to the singles dance so that I would make her look good.She said she went with her cousin Susan who's skinnier than her & Susan got all the attention.I'm like well if she got all the attention count your freaking blessings b/c obviously those aren't the right men for you if their NOT paying attention to you.It just frustrates me that people criticize & give expert advice & I told you had seen a licensed certified Nutritionalist/Dietrician.Enough said thanks.

That video views as an infomercial and I'm not going to waste time on something that you keep getting told he is going to tell you something and goes on and on about how he's going to tell you, but yet, you can only play and pause the video with no option to fast forward or rewind. Classic way to try to sell something to people. Looking at some results about that doctor, he sells a cleanse...another item that is not necessary and can be harmful without your doctor's supervision. Your body doesn't need to be cleansed...it does it on its own.

As for SlimQuick, I looked that up and it's main ingredient is a green tea, so it's using caffeine mostly and there are a lot of mixed reviews on it. Again, I would not recommend it, nor would I take it or anything like it. It may have helped you, temporarily. You gained after you stopped taking it. That means there was a temporary fix rather than a permanent one, such as a healthy lifestyle.

It sounds like you have some disordered eating habits from over the years (diet pills, drinks, binging, possibly purging, etc.). It can be a troublesome path and difficult to get out of that pattern without outside help. You mentioned pigging out and losing weight. Perhaps you have been restricting yourself too much in general.

If you haven't already, please discuss your current health and eating patterns with your doctor and/or a registered dietitian. What you continue to post is not healthy, even if you don't consider it to be. We truly care about the health of our members and it is not safe or okay to promote such unhealthy behaviors or pills, drinks, etc.

Ty but I beg to differ it has worked the weight came off using SlimQuick I mentioned a few other brands of diet pills & I tried Jenny Craig & there was a licensed dietician there & the same for going to one.I did learn how to read labels on foods better.When you don't feel like eating or hungry I don't feel it's right to say you have to eat breakfast to start the day.Everybodys bodies are different & have different needs.It's the same as in school they have special needs children that need different teachers or those that excell in school & instead of being in the 8th grade are in College.To me SlimQuick was NOT a quick fix it really helped me & it did what it said it was going to do.I felt I needed to share this with everyone.I don't agree with the Atkins diet I feel that's dangerous.I had a lady at work whom was peeing on a stick.I was like what are you doing?She said it was letting her know if it was working the Atkins Diet.To me eating high fat foods like bacon & eating high fat foods is NOT healthy either.I lost 50 pounds to me thats outstanding considering of what I had went threw.Have you made yourself throw up?Probably not everyone's experiences are different.The Dietitiion/Nutritionalist I went to see was in Loveland Ohio this was years ago named Dr.Carol Meijer/Meyer she was a registered Board Certified.I asked my doctor for help & she guided me to her.I've been off SlimQuick for a while & only gained back 7 I'm at 161 pounds.I'm just trying to figure out why I'm not losing being off of the SlimQuick b/c I really should be.I pigged out 1 day & I ate some cheesecake before going to bed.When I woke up I was shocked I lost 3 pounds I'm like ok how is that?I thought for sure I would have gained instead of losing & this was being off of SlimQuick.Anyway ty for your tips & help & talking to me.I recently came across a video https://www.unhealthpublications.com/unq-p

0fe0053614b95 I was amazed at how he explained how our stomach is if you get a chance you have to see this video.It's not a diet pill video just watch if you can & would like to how he explains how our stomach is.The way he explained it like a garden I am hooked.

@TARA6181 - Diet pills and "quick fixes" like that don't work. You need to actually make healthy lifestyle changes to truly lose the weight and keep it off. It sounds like you have tried many things and found that they didn't work (they don't). If those things really worked, nobody would be overweight. For the sake of your health, please don't keep seeking out unhealthy fixes. It does sound like you could use the help of a registered dietitian, not just a nutritionist (anyone can call them selves a nutritionist, but a registered dietitian has had many years of school and has gone through a lot of training that you can't get with a "nutritionist"). What you have been doing with these "diets" and diet pills are really not safe and we cannot and do not promote that type of habit or "eating." If you continue to have trouble with your weight and/or keep looking for that quick fix, then it would even be a good idea to discuss those things with your doctor.

Here are some links that I hope you will take the time to read:

If I were you I would look for a registered dietitian or registered nurse because they have had lengthy and valuable training. Look for one that makes you feel that she or he is in tune with you. Search out one you feel you can trust and then do exactly what she/he advises you to do. If you were an explorer traveling through unknown lands you would need a guide. You need a guide through the unknown land of your health, if you know what I mean. I'm just a person who cares about you. I don't know the technical advise to give you in your special predicament. Let us know how you do. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Did you chat online with a primal nutritionist? Can you "shop around" until you find a registered dietitian that you jive with? I hope you keep talking with us to let us know how you are doing. Don't give up looking for the right solution that fits you. We're your friends! emoticon

Type into the search bar of google "how to find a certified primal nutritionist" and this will give you some interesting choices. I hope you let me know how this turns out for you.

After reading your posts a few times and thinking about your nutrition history I think you should use a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist. They have the knowledge to find out if you have any nutritional deficiencies that are holding you back from loosing more pounds. They can set you on the right track with a diet designed just for you. I can't emphasize the importance of using the talents of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist because they have intensive education that will definitely benefit you. If the cost is too much for you ask if you can be put on a program suited to your income.

In order to become a Certified Nutritionist, people need a four-year degree in clinical nutrition or a master's degree in human nutrition, American Nutrition Association. In addition to possessing an accredited bachelor's degree, they must complete no less than a 900-hour internship.

I was thinking of doing a soup & Egg diet.Have eggs in the morning soup for lunch & soup for dinner & if I get hungry threw out the day eggs &/fruit.I remember when Oprah lost all that weight MAN she was really skinny I thought a little too skinny she looked great though.I know she did it w/just a liquid diet not sure if I could do that & I don't want to look anorexic either.I'm 5'3" & according to BMI I need to be 140-130 pounds.If I could just get to 140 I'd be eccstatic.

Ok GREAT ty KateSally that's very sweet of U.Hugs hope all is well I haven't lost any pounds yet.so seriously thinking of going back to SlimQuick or a different diet pill to see what works so others can know too.You know what I don't understand is we have so many brands to choose from when it comes to things it gets so overwhelming.I tried Dexatrim & Accutrim when I was a teenager didn't work.Then I tried making myself throw up that worked but it wasn't healthy I stopped after seeing Karen Carpenter movie on lifetime.Then I tried the candy bar & Diet coke diet that worked but again not very healthy,I did this in Highschool.Skip breakfast,have this for lunch then eat dinner with my family.Later on I went to Jenny Craig I loved that but too expensive $86.plus groceries a week $186-$200 & I was on steroids so that was defeating me.Then I went to see a nutritionalist I learned alot from her $30. a vist.NOW & GOD I was shocked how the weight was just coming off by using SlimQuick & NO EXERCISING & NO SIDE EFFECTS.I was amazed.I tried Hydroxycut didn't work & Lipozene made my stomach hurt.So any suggestions is excellent ty.

KateSally ty for responding back.When I drink water it kinda makes me sick like Nausea sometimes.I do agree with you about Oatmeal especially if you have allergies.I don't like oatmeal it either has to be in a cookie or I really love Nutrisystems oatmeal I recently tried it b/c it came in the box I bought.I thought ok I will try this & I was really surprised that I liked it.I don't like Quaker my brother & sister though loves that.I will google what you mentioned about curbing the appetite w/o pills.I know fruits & vegetables help so does popcorn & eggs.I've found that to work really well.Any suggestions on heart burn.I know ice cream does but it gives me gas & even though I buy sugar free still it probably isn't good to have every day.I had my gall bladder removed so this is why I get heart burn & acid reflex this is what a doctor told me.I take a pill for that every day but I don't feel that's good either.So any ideas or help would be great ty hawbd love this group glad I joined & that you accepted me.I'm off SlimQuick for now & I haven't gained any weight back stick stuck at 160 pounds.I really need to be 140-130 to be healthy weight.

emoticon Well...I'm a Quaker so I don't take pills and don't suggest you take any. Type into the search bar " How to curb your appetite" and you'll see articles that will give you expert guidance. What I do is to eat a bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon and a bit of honey because the gooey liquid that builds up as you constantly stir the oatmeal is a "stick to your ribs" food that not only keeps you full but is really good for you. Also, I drink 2 glasses of water because I've found that many times when I think I'm hungry I am really thirsty.

Let us know how it works. If you can do workouts that burn calories, the fitness tracker tells you how many calories you've burned. So if your meal was 300 calories and your exercise burned 350 calories you are on your way to losing weight.

The stuff you read on the cereal box is very interesting. My nutrition tracker is set to meal plans and it gives me the meals that add up to 1,200 - 1,550 calories every day. The meals are set up by a dietitian so I feel confident my body is getting what it needs to build health.

Hi took Ur suggestion of visiting Morale Boost Great Group ty for mentioning it hawbd.I'm stuck @ 160 I just joined www.MyPlate.com to see what their about same as MyFitnessPal & SparkPeople. I'm presently stuck @ 160 pounds I lost the 50 so easy with SlimQuick.MyPlate suggested calories of 1200 to lose 2 pounds per week so I will keep everyone posted.I read on a Special K cereal box when I was in my teens this was 25 years ago that if you weigh 200 pounds then more than likely U are eating 2,000 calories.So to lose weight you would have to lower it to 1800 calories a day then when you get to 180 you lower that to 1600 calories a day.Basically all you do is add a zero.I found this to be very true.So we will see.I feel hungry I think I need a diet pill that will curb my appetite.Any diet pill suggestions?I was thinking of trying Alli or Skinny Gal or some other type of diet pill other than SlimQuick to see what works so others would know.Do you think this is a good idea?Thanks

My goal is to use well planned effort to make my future years full of functional fitness so that I can enjoy doing what I want to do. Regular exercise and good nutrition lead to good balance and flexibility, muscle gain, strong bones, good strength and aerobic fitness.

Consistency is the key to building up the number of reps and sets you can do of the workout exercises in the challenges. I started with 5 sets and now do 50 sets in each series of repetitions. It boosts my morale to know I am working on reaching my goals.

Hi, team emoticon emoticon emoticon I went out to get a bouquet for the dining room table. It always makes the meals more relaxing to have a center-piece of flowers and maybe candles on either side of the bouquet. The pounds I've been losing are almost gone. I must say I feel better without carrying the extra weight. emoticon

First thing every morning, after my prayers, I think about the ways I succeeded in living up to my plans for myself. Eating right, walking for at least 20 minutes, doing my personal challenges are important for me. Knowing I did right by myself yesterday gives me the morale boost I need to get today's challenges done. emoticon

5K Your Way Running Challenge / Day 25 / "" Today's Tip: Find ways to use regular rewards to pat yourself on the back & give a word of encouragement. Instead of focusing on what you do wrong, try paying more attention to what you do right. While straight talk & brutal honesty are often good for getting your butt moving, for sustained motivation the positive approach will keep you from burning out. Remember that if you need it, today's a good day to rest instead of cross-train. ""
