  I'm sorry, but when you see a commercial (and in my profession in REAL LIFE), people say they've tried 'EVERYTHING' to lose weight and it's 'IMPOSSIBLE', I want rip my hair out! Unless you're paying me to train you and tell you the real of weight loss, I have to keep my mouth shut to avoid offending people and stepping on toes..And if you know me, you know I HATE biting my tongue (even I have to have manners :] ).

 "Everything" probably includes every type of diet product, pill, cleanse, and other CRAP on the planet, but have you really given dedication to having a healthy diet and incorporating exercise (A WEEK OR TWO DOES NOT COUNT)! Even if a diet product works for a short period of time, the chance that it will last without proper diet and exercise is slim. Also, if you read the small print on most diet supplements and products out there, you'll see that there is an asterisk *[with diet and exercise.] Why not give eating right and exercise a chance without putting potentially harmful and toxic chemicals into your body. 

  I love how Oprah has even brought up that if a 'Miracle Product' DID work, that she of all people could afford it, but nothing other than sticking to eating healthier foods and exercising is truly effective in breaking the barrier. People notice a HUGE difference with just small changes, it doesn't have to be 'all or nothing', you don't have to give up because you slipped up and gave into a craving or compulsion a few times. Start including more fruits and veggies before cutting out more of the snack foods, limit the number of times you allow yourself to eat outside the home every week, start taking stairs and walking for 15 minutes on your lunch break! So many tiny lifestyle changes will truly put you and your body on a mission to a healthier YOU.

Pick your self up, dust it off, and take control of your body!
