Weight loss. UGH

trying to lose and failing miserably.  If hubby hadn't pushed me to find a job then I would still be going to the gym.  I started gaining when I stopped.  I can't workout at home.  I just can't.  there is no one to push me.  at the gym I sucked it up and kept going.  Everyone was watching.  No one is watching here so if I want to sit out or quit early.  who is to stop me.  Also water.  I don't drink enuf.  I know it.  When I am working it is impossible to get enuf.  Unless I think about it and grab a drink every time I pass the water fountain.

Weight loss programs I have tried

Weight watchers.  This works.  until i plateaued

ViSalus -  good shakes but didn't lose anything. 

Thrive by Le-Vel.  Not a weight loss program but they do say one of the side effects is Weight loss and appetite suppression.  um not for me.  My appetite is the same.  and I lost no weight

Anyway.  trying to lose as much as I can by end of Aug..in a competition with my sisters and mom.  going to try and get more water in and going to try and get some workouts in

Goodbye Le-vel

well this is going to be my last month on thrive by Le-vel.  it isn't worth the money.  I haven't lost anything on it or feel like my appetite is less.  I know this is really just a side effect on some but i was so hopeful.  I do feel slightly more pep but not enuf to warrant the cost of it.  i am sure i can find something else to get that Pep.  i just got replacement patches as they sent me the wrong ones.  if it was a preference of color that is one thing but i ordered and paid extra for the ultra and they sent me the regular.  so now i have 2 months of patches.  not sure if i want to order one month of vitamins to go with the second patch set or just take some multi vitamins.  i probably will just take a multi. I know there is many who have had success with thrive but i am just not one of them.  i also lost nothing with Visalus but i do love the shake flavor and will continue with those for my am breakfest when i don't have time to eat (early mornings on the way to work)  IF anyone has a weight loss plan let me know.  In the last few months i have put on 20 pounds.  i know it is me...i have fallen to bad habits.  stopped drinking water as often and eating more junk then usual.  i think i am going to try doing some weight watchers again.  (ha try.  i been saying i am going to try a lot)
