"I was diagnosed with high blood pressure in 1998. Then thyroid disease in 2001 and then type 2 diabetes in 2005. I have been struggling with weight since my son was born in 1993. I was 170 when I got pregnant then stayed home with him for a year and gained 50 pounds. Then as age and stress came along, I gained again. Topped out at 230. I was spending over $100 per month for meds.

We went on vacation in Oct of 2006. When I came back I was just ready to finally do something about my weight. I went to my Dr. He and I had been fighting over my weight for 4 years. I was just not ready to accept the advice given to me. He just kept saying "Cut everything you eat in half". I just loved food too much and didnt want to cut it in half. Then in November I just snapped. I got tired of wearing a size 22 and being fat.

When I told the Dr. that I wanted to try Adipex, he told me that with my HBP, he would have to increase the meds for it. I said whatever you have to do to get this off me!. I was working 2 jobs at the time so it really helped me get over the "walk in the door at home and eat" habit. I didnt get home till 11pm at night sometimes. On break I was not hungry so I would eat a banana. I lost 30 lbs by New Year's Day. Then I got stuck at 200. I spoke with a nutritionist at the gym I go to, to do aqua class 2 times a week. She told me to go to the library and get the book " Eating for your Blood Type". I also got "Cooking for your blood type" Those books with Gods help have changed my life. I never realized how certian food affected my blood and kept me from losing weight.

I am now 184 and still going. I cried in the dressing room at Bealls Outlet a few weeks ago since I have not put on a size 14 since my wedding dress, 14 years ago!! They probably thought I was crazy but I didnt care. I now am off the HBP meds and the insulin! Even with thyroid disease I still lost weight. It was amazing to me. I had tried so many other things to lose weight but the mind set was not there. So the combination of GOD, Adipex, and those books has changed my life forever. I gave all my clothes to a consignment shop so that with the money I got, I could buy smaller sizes! It feels so good to be thin again."

It works only if you are mentally ready. You can say it in your mind but if you heart is not ready, it will not work.
