If you can train yourself to pay attention to how full you are getting and then heed the signal and stop yourself, you will have made a huge stride in being able to reduce your hugeness. If all those reasons I gave you above are not motivation enough for you to drop the chalupa ( into the wrapper, of course, so you can have leftovers), then you need to think about all the other problems that comes with being overweight. High blood pressure, Diabetes, heart problems, failing joints (knee and hip replacements), even hemorrhoid problems just to tick off a few. So let the exhortation that is the title of this post be your rallying cry and mental marker to take a step back and reassess the situation thus allowing you to take charge of your health and well-being so that you can begin to get your weight in line with where you want it to be.

The good news here is that hemorrhoids brought about by obesity can most likely be eradicated by eliminating what caused the problem in the first place...i.e. corpulence. That's right. Lose the weight lose the hemorrhoids. It's not rocket science, people. So the best thing you can do, whether you as yet have these precious little tormentors in your nether region or not, is to make healthy life style changes and begin making the common sense choices outlined in this site dedicated to doing just that. If you can do that it will contribute to your overall health and not just the risk or actual pain of the "H" word.

So if I understand this correctly they want to see if the drug can kill you from a heart attack from losing the very weight that had you at risk of a heart attack in the first place. It sounds like you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. Apparently the test patients exhibited a slight increase in blood pressure and pulse rate versus those on a placebo. Despite these lack luster results and the undesirable side effects, analysts are saying if it comes to market it could hit $1.2 billion in sales by 2018!! I can't imagine that because I hate any kind of side effects from drugs, and I absolutely refuse to continue taking them if I experience any. That's just me though, and I've come to learn over the years that you can't determine success in the market place by my likes and dislikes. That just goes to show you the desperation of people who have gotten themselves in this predicament of being grossly overweight that they would subject themselves to these side effects depredations and exposing themselves to cardiac arrest for the loss of a few pounds they could very well achieve on their own using....you guessed it, common sense. Which leads me to say that I think turning to a drug like this would be another DOUBLE-DUMB weight loss choice.
