    i decided against it because after i read the booklets that came with it....it said if you are following a very low fat diet that alli will not benefit you. it has a chart that shows how many fat grams is considered low fat, high fat, etc. and i fell into the very low fat range. so, i thought there was no point in messing up my poop cycle for nothing....especially after it has taken me so long to get my constipation issues under control. i took 2 capsules one day out of a 90 count bottle, so i still have 88 pills. so, if anyone is thinking about buying the alli starter kit let me know and i;ll be glad to sell it to you cheaper than the regular price! otherwise, i'll probably just put it on ebay eventually.

    That is so true about changing things. The past two weeks for me have been probably some of the worst in my life, I pulled my upper back the first week, then the second week, our A/C unit flooded our living room. So for the last three days I have had noisy machines in my house trying to dry everything out before they have to come in and replace an entire wall and all the carpet!!! Needless to say, I did not get much exercise in. Now, I am not in anyway saying don't excercise, but I just kinda took it wasy the past two weeks, and I actually broke through my plateau of 153 to 150!!!! Very excited, but I do plan on getting back on the treadmill this week

    that sounds like the calorie cycling thing, I read that you can cycle by eating low carb or low fat for a few days and then if you dont lose or stop losing then switch to a higher carb or calorie until you stop losing on that.

    ex if i eat 1200 calories and did got stuck at the same weight for 3 days then i would up my calories until i start losing again and stay at that range until i have another stall, then i would take it down again.

    So i really thing changing it up works. I am kind of trying it now, but not on purpose

    well, i went to the weight loss clinic with intentions of getting phen, but found out i can't take phen because of another medication that interferes with it. the doctor asked me about my weight history.....like how long i have been overweight, what my activity level was, blah blah blah......

    i was always really active in high school. i would run around a track behind my house every single day, but would never lose weight. i would stay the same weight though so it was never really a concern. but then after i had kids and gained weight because of that, it became a problem when i couldn't get the weight off.....

    he said it sounded like i needed a boost to my metabolism based on what i had said.....that my metabolism probably just wasn't all that fast....and that b12/lipo is supposed to increase energy, etc.....and he wanted me to try that. i did....and it has worked wonders. nothing has ever worked for me like these shots have....i highly reccomend them.

    BUT you still have to follow a diet plan.....i myself follow a low calorie/low fat diet and walk regularly....and drink nothing but water. it isn't a magic shot, but like anything else....if you work, it will, too! hope that helps....

    Default changing it up.... it really works!

    so i have read a lot of posts here about plateaus and how to break them. everyone always suggests doing something different than the same old routine to start losing again.

    so, after 10 weeks of getting b12/lipo shots i decided to stop getting them...not to break a plateau, but just to see if i could go without them and still lose. well, for almost two weeks i lost nothing (according to my home scale) because i wasn't being weighed in at the doctor. so, my home scale which is 2 pounds lighter than my doctor's scale said i was 173 point something every day for almost two weeks (and before i had been losing every single day) so i was getting a little frustrated. well, i decided to go back and get the shots again.

    sunday morning i weighed 173 (at home)....and this morning i was 169.6 (at home)! i know when i go back to the doctor on monday (only one week from the date i last went) i will have lost 5 pounds....and that's CRAZY cus i had been losing an average of a pound or less a week for the past few weeks.

    i think where my body had gotten used to the shots and the low cal/low fat i had been following for so many weeks it just got stuck. then, when i ate a bunch of crap and then got the shot again and started eating right again it shocked my body.

    if someone would've said i would be in the 60's three months ago i would've said they were smoking something cus i haven't been there since ........7 years ago? so, trust what you read from the people who have broken their plateaus!.....don't give up, change something.......and you will lose again!
