So the next day, I was eating lunch with Blaze (from http://fortiblazin.blogspot.com) and was talking about HCG and why I didn't think it was a good idea. He mentioned that he wanted to try 1-Db Overdrive. What timing! I guess great minds really do think alike! After we talked about it for a bit, we decided to just head over to Supplement Superstore and get it. I was a little leery of paying so much for something I still had some doubt about, but Blaze was determined to buy it so he said he would split the first one with me. After mentioning (admitting) we were sold by the radio ads on 105.7 The Point (thanks Woody and Riz!) we got a discount and it came out to be around $75 + tax. It is probably that much anyway, they just make you feel good by giving you a "discount", but I can't complain about a 25% savings. I also picked up a sample of the 1-Db Goddess for my wife. This was at her request by the way. If I showed up at home and out of the blue gave her a diet supplement to try I can only imagine the doom that would follow.
When we got back to the office, we separated out the bottles of 1-Db Overdrive and Thyro-Burner (the FAST Pack). This should last us 2 - 4 weeks each, depending on 1 pill twice a day or 2 pills twice a day. We each took 1 Overdrive and 1 Thyro-Burner at around 1:30pm. By about 1:45pm I could feel it doing something because my body felt warm and my leg was bouncing. I didn't however notice any real improvement in focus :( I know, it is probably all in my head, but at this point I'm pretty much willing to try anything to get more motivated and have a little more energy.
Just for reference, I get about as much exercise per day as a rock. I've never ran over a mile in my life, and I only did that once! I work in IT at a desk and my home life is pretty sedentary as well. Wish me luck!
So begins my public dieting story. Starting weight September 12: 252. Goal weight by October 1: 235.
