I feel so suppressed

So every so often (well, a lot actually) I moan and groan about my weight and how unfair it is that food is so delicious but so evil. Recently, I’ve noticed I eat even when not hungry. Today, I have started to attempt to eat less… I didn’t even eat one bit of chocolate today although I have a buttload at home. I just got here andΒ  *drool* I want it all, but I’m being good… for now πŸ™‚

Anyhoo, I’ve always wondered what diet suppressents were like but have heard about all the horror stories about side effects and kept away. If truth be told, I don’t really have issues losing weight just issues motivating myself to do so.

I have looked up one of these drugs today though called Phentermine and well, while it sounds good I wonder about it’s “speed like” qualities. The side effects that are toned down are

“simply the effects of having too much adrenaline and noradrenaline. Such side possible side effects are tachycardia (increased heart rate) and elevated blood pressure, but the incidence and magnitude of these appear to be less than with the amphetamines.”

This doesn’t fill me with confidence… it has the similar side effects to Speed so how addictive is it? And why does this review call it the Phentermine Diet? Scary much?

As always with diet supplements part of the review says how effect it is when combined with a good diet and exercise! Just like everything else right? I’m sure chocolate is good taken once a day in combination with exercise and good diet.

This review states that it is unbiased but seems to tone down the side effects and instead focuses on how it’s the strongest diet suppressent that is still legal.

Colour me skeptical.

A Quarter of a Century

Can you believe it? I turned 25 last week… I’m a quarter of a century old. It’s a little bit scary I think. In fact, a lot scary! Mainly because it reminds me that I’ve spent 20% of my life working at TeleTech… if that doesn’t shock you, I don’t know what will πŸ˜›

Things are looking up in some ways and looking down in others so I suppose my rollercoaster ride has evened out… for now anyway.

On the negative, my PC somewhat died. It’s been up and down for a few months now and well it doesn’t like starting anymore. I have, however formatted an old PC we had so can still access the internet and stuff… haven’t installed Vid card and sound card drivers yet though (not really sure what they are… on board is all I know for sure right now) so its soundless and ugly πŸ˜›
Oh… and now DVD burner! CD only… YUCK! Good thing I have 2 DVD burners in my other PC. I’m kinda hesitant to change them though. I’m a wuss like that.

On the positive and a bit of a different angle, I had my first bra fitting last weekend. Apparently I was wearing 2 cup sizes too small… can you believe it? I’m now an E… an E!! I didn’t even know what came after D before that (DD apparently). My Mum bought me some bras from the same place for my birthday… $100 worth of bra! I know right, yikes. The $60 one though is beautiful and probably the nicest bra I’ve ever owned! So that’s nice πŸ™‚

There are other things, good and bad but I think I’ll leave them for another day πŸ™‚
