I will be a voice you don't want to hear. You didn't take a magic pill to gain weight, a magic pill won't take it off. Please don't spend the money on questionable pills. People are more successful with support, spend the money with weight watchers or TOPS(much cheaper, need more discipline). If you want to go solo, count the calories, do the exercise, say no to extras. Take care of you for you so you can enjoy when empty nest time comes instead of being sick, overweight and tired. Good luck.
