So far so good****Update***Update
on February 24, 2014
I started taking this February 16. It says to allow 2 weeks to start seeing results. I actually lost almost 4 pounds the first week. I had been struggling pretty much all of 2013 to lose the ten-plus pounds I had put on from the winter of 2012. I broke down and bought an elliptical machine this January, lost two pounds the first week, but after that initial weightloss, I seem to hit a platea again. I watched what I ate for the most part and did 30 minutes on the machine 5 days and week, and then week after week I would get on the scale and either weigh the same or 1 pound more. I saw Meratrim on Dr. Oz and thought I would give it a try. The only thing I did differently last week is cut back on my sugar intake a bit (1 less cup of coffee with cream/sugar/sweetner and cut out the occasional Poptart lol). I was shocked to get on the scale Saturday morning and see almost a 4-pound loss. I'm sure cutting back on the sugar helped, but not 4-pounds worth. I have been fighting these ten plus pounds for months and months and now all the sudden it's starting to come off. I only gave it four stars so far, because it's only been 1 week, and I want to see how week two and three go. Right now I feel confident that the Meratrim is working and will be checking back in to update my review.
***3/10/2014**Update*** Ok after the third week of taking Meratrim, exercising for over 30 minutes a day, watching what I eat, cutting out even more sugar, I'm feeling fit when I go to weigh myself. I step on the scale and I weigh.....the same. I'm very unhappy with that, but I noticed that I look leaner, I can fit a pair of pants I couldn't fit a week ago, and I now have to fold the waist band of my workout sweats down to act a belt to keep them from falling down. I use an elliptical and do plenty of exercise that build muscle, so I don't know,maybe it's muslcle weight. Anyway, I need to drop ten pounds so,I'm going to stick with it for a while longer and see what happens.
****4/1/2014***Update I have bought two bottles of Meratrim. I feel I need to change my rating from 4 to 3 stars. I've lost a total of five pounds since February 16. My weight seem to fluctuate over the last two months, and after six weeks, I expected to see more fat weight loss and a bigger difference on the scale even with the small gains of muscle. I have half a bottle left, but I'm going to switch to something else and see how that goes. I will probably finish off this bottle sometime in the near future, but I don't think I will be purchasing again. I do have to give Meratrim some of the credit, because I could not lose any of those pesky 10+ pounds no matter what I did, and Meratrim seemed to give me a little boost, but not enough to warrant spending $30 a bottle again.
