diet pills, oh, diet pills. Which one's have I not tried? Read the directions? phhfttt. If one is good, two or three are better.  Sick stomach, pounding heart, car sick feeling in my head...but the benefits are so worth it!!! (not).  I can honestly say I have never really lost any weight over taking diet pills, the best I will do is not GAIN weight.  My main problem is late night eating.  I don't take the diet pills past a certain time of day or I won't sleep....so when they wear off - BOOM - I am starving and ready to go at a carton of ice cream or brownies at midnight...the whole day down the drain.  I don't know how much money I have wasted on these items.  Yes, I said wasted. I admit that. It pisses me off that I let the diet industry pull off this lie on me, but I always think maybe this time it will work, maybe THIS is the diet pill that is THE ONE. 

Liars? I tend to be pretty suspicious of people from the get go. I feel like I can read people pretty well...I don't like people lying to me, but it's not always a deal breaker for a friendship for me.  I think I lie to myself sometimes, which is actually a worse form of betrayal. How do I lie to myself? I lie to myself with the messages I allow to occupy my brain and body. I lie to myself when I believe I am something I am not, or don't believe something I am. The worst thing that happens, is when I stop knowing WHAT I believe.
