Hellllllppp!!!! diet peer pressure

A lot of my co-workers are on a diet pill (phen something but not phen phen). They all have become so skinny. I am so jealous and tempted to try this quick fix. They say that it was prescribed by a physician. I need help not to order these pills!!!!!

Do NOT go down that road. They may be skinny, but they're not going to take those pills forever and then they'll balloon back up. And just because they were prescribed by a doctor doesn't make them safe. Your co-workers are also probably a tad on the jittery side because of the pills, and won't feel as grat and wonderful as you when you eat right, exercise, and take care of your self. You have a long term solution, they have a short term fix.

Been there done that..........don't do it........

Been there done that, so I can say from experience, DON"T DO IT. The minute you stop taking the pills (and the doctors don't perscribe them forever...and shouldn't) you gain all the weight back......I did.....Not to mention that the pills are probably not safe.

Another vote for the don't do it. If it's phentermine, I took that a while back and it burnt out my adrenal glands. I ended up so exhausted I wanted to sleep 14 hours a day. I had to work with my doctor for 6 months to fix the damage. What a nightmare. Not to mention, I gained all the weight back. It's not worth your health.

keep it natural - and do it right!

It must be soooo tempting when you see it "working" for everyone else, but don't introduce stuff like that into your body. Who knows what other bad side effects will show up later on?? Seriously.
