Has anyone taken any type of pill to lose weight? I know someone who took phenteramine (sp?) and lost nearly 50 pounds in 2 months. I also know it can be addictive- I know someone else who took it and didn't lose any weight, but it kept her from gaining it and she is addicted. I have been dieting since the end of January. I was super strict and first and now I find myself having lapses more and more. I have only lost 15 pounds and I have not been pleased with my progress at all. Plus, I am ALWAYS hungry. Well, my sister is getting married in August and I am the MOH. I ran around to 3 David's Bridal stores trying to find the dress she wants in my size to try on. None of them had one- I called once a week for 6 weeks to check on it and they never had one in all that time. The size below it wouldn't zip up, the size above it was HUGE through the bust. Every other dress I tried on in the size I was looking for fit perfectly. The lady that worked there measured the amount of loose material on the size up and said the inbetween size would fit. So, I went ahead and ordered it. I picked it up today- and it doesn't fit!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't get it zipped up past my bra strap. They don't do returns or exchanges, so I have to fit in this dress by August 9th. I am definitely doing to be super strict with my diet. Now that school will be out, I am going to be much more serious about exercising (I work a PT job so I don't have a lot of time and often fall asleep for a couple hours on the days I don't work both jobs). But, I also think I may need to do something else to ensure that I fit in this stupid dress!
