Does anyone know if there are any doctors in Horse Cave or surrounding areas that will prescribe weight loss pills? I have tried every over the counter method and exercise with no success. Thanks for your help

No. You don't need weight loss pills. If you don't have a genetic problem that makes you fat then you should exercise. Cardio and weightlifting will cause you to lose fat and gain muscle. That's it. There's no magic pill that will make you skinny. You are wasting your money. Buy a treadmill at Wal Mart and buy some dumbbells and go to it. If you don't have money for a treadmill just start walking or running (whatever your body will allow at the current state) and start doing some pushups.

You know...in basic training soldiers exercise daily doing running and kinetic exercises only. I've seen some fat asses turn rock hard in a couple months by doing that. It's all about motivation. If you are looking for a pill that shows that you are trying to be lazy and weight loss doesn't happen for lazy people.

Trust me. I was a personal trainer in a gym a few years ago. If you want some pointers and are really serious just let me know and I'll post some for you. I don't mind helping out someone to get healthy who is really going to try. I won't waste my time on a lazy person though.

Listen, It is calories in verses calories burned. Nothing more,nothing less. You cannot imagine how many calories are in fast food meals! It is no wonder the majority of America is obese. Let me give you an example-Zaxby's chicken salad sandwich basket meal- 1242 calories,65 grams of fat, 2496 mg of sodium. Now if you are a woman, just trying to maintain your weight, not lose any, your calorie intake would be about 2000 calories. This one meal is over half of that! Not to mention your fat grams should be about 60, and this meal is over that! What are you left with for the rest of the day?

phentermine does help you have energy, so you can get up and do more, I lost like 80 pounds doing low carb and exercising, but at the end when the weight loss stopped I did take the pills to help loose the last 20 pounds, I kept it off for 4 years, but in the last year I have gained about 20 back, due to alot of different things, I had 2 surgeries and couldn't do alot for about 3 months after the first and 5 months after the second, I did go to Urgent Care this week and started taking the pills again to jump start me, I am walking two miles a day, drinking more water, cutting all sweets and mostly low carb foods, I am not happy with my weight and only I can change that

How much you eat or dont eat has nothing to do with flabby arms it has to do with muscle tone. You lose so much with age.. also when you loose alot of weight

Weight lifting will firm you up. Don't worry about looking like a man. You can't look like a man unless you WANT to. The average woman who lifts weights will gain muscle and lose fat which = toning up. I'd suggest joining a gym if you can. They will have professional weight machines. If not just go to a store and buy some dumbbells.

I'd suggest three different weights. You want 2 of each weight. So 2 ten pund dumbbells, 2 fifteen pund dumbbells, and 2 twenty pound dumbbells. You can even get them at Wal Mart if you are someone who doesn't want to pay a whole lot for them.

Start out doing the same amount of reps per weight. Example: Grab your ten pund weight. 10 reps then stop for fifteen seconds. Do 10 more then stop for fiteen seconds. Do 10 more then stop for good. Grab your fifteen pund dumbbells and do the same thing..then do the same with your twenty pund ones. Do this same thing every other day for two weeks. If you are really sore at first you can skip two days in between. NEVER do it two days in a row. Your muscles grow because you tear them when you use weight that they aren't used to. They think "Ow wow we had better get on the ball and make new tissue if this person is going to be lifting heavier weight". So the day in between gives your muscles to generate new and MORE tissue and this causes them to get bigger. The bigger they are the more calories they need to stay big. So they will burn calories you eat while you are resting. So you will also need to eat more protein since protein is the basic building block for muscle. Plus water. Muscles LOVE water. This is also true for when people lose muscle. If you stop working out they think "Oh okay well we don't need all of this extra tissue so we'll get rid of it". They then get rid of the tissue and get smaller.

Now...that was just what you need to do for your arms. You can also use dumbbells to increase muscle in the legs, back, belly...well ANYWHERE! That's the good thing about them, they are cheap, take up a very small space, and can be used on any part of the body. Just look up some websites and they will show you pictures and instruct you how to target certain parts of the body with dumbbells. The information is everywhere.

After a couple weeks you'll have to switch up your routine. That's another thing with muscles. After so long they get used to repetitve movement and they will stop responding "growing". So you will also need to buy heavier ones. When you get really seasoned you can even just do ONE rep instead of ten or twelve or sixteen. I used to do this with my legs. I'd put 200 pounds on a leg press and do ONE rep and then get off. 200 pounds at one rep would max me out. My body fat took a nose dive after doing that for a week. You can do ANYTHING with weight lifting.
yoo hoo

Yeah. Do whatever weight you feel comfortable with. If it's too light go bigger. You want to feel the "burn" even on your first set. By they time you get to the last few reps of your last set your muscles need to be all weak and shaky, you need to be all sweating and feel your face getting red and you really need to PUSH those last few reps out. When you have finished your set you need to feel total muscle fatigue. Be sure to make sure you have the correct form. It's easy to pull a muscle or strain something if you don't. You can look it up online if you need to.
