Confronting the Weight Issue

I found an ad for one of those "Get Skinny Quick" fad
drugs/diets yesterday, and although I know it isn't
healthy, and probably not lasting, it's tempting. I guess
that's the point of the ad. I have the money, and maybe
it's worth a try...? Even if it just gave me a little boost
to get started, it might do me some good. I think my
common sense is fighting with my desperation to do
something about my weight. If anyone has any thoughts
about this, please give me some feedback!

I really wish that I could just hide out for a while and
do nothing but work out and watch what I'm eating.
Unfortunately, I live in the real world, and I have to
continue to live in the real world. At least when the
summer starts, I'll have more free time to work out and the
like. I was a lot healthier last summer, and I loved the
way I felt. Spending a lot of time being active was SO
much better than just sitting around the house all day. I
can't wait to be able to do that again, but with school and
work, it's hard right now.

I don't think people realize how hard it is to be
overweight. There's just so much pressure to be thin, and
if it were easy to lose it, there wouldn't be so many
people fighting the weight loss battle. We all know how to
do it- Eat better, exercise more- but it's easier said
than done!
