was wondering if anyone here takes diet pills and actually knows they are safe and work. ive been trying to tell myself not to try any outside sources when it comes to losing weight, but being stuck where i am now, not sure i can.

Don't know about the weight loss drugs, but even if they work with burning fat, they won't do anything with the excess skin from having already lost a lot of weight. Extra skin, stretch marks etc. after a lot of weight loss are only fixable with surgery. I'd just not worry about that.

Im curious also. How tall are you? Because 165 isnt fat at all really.
I think in terms of losing, bodyfat is the keyword and not weight. I have been about 180 some odd months ago with some muscle and then went down to the 160s and now I'm around 150-155. I lost mostly bodyfat and look a lot better than I did in the 160s and a bit higher range. Of course this isn't my desired body weight but I am going to stay lean year round and keep adding more lbs as the years go by.

I've been eating smaller meals at work and only going out for lunch 1 day week, and I'm up to 180 and 5'9". I used to be 150lbs.

6'2" - 240 aiming to get to 215-220.
I tried the Jillian Michaels pills for about a month, dropped three pounds and gained it all back in three days after I quit. They're mostly water shedding with an extra dose of caffiene to make you wiggly during the day.

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

Unhelpful rant on diet pills:
Anyway, are you getting enough resistance exercise? If you alternate enough between cardio and resistance, you'll lose the weight more evenly and that won't happen as much. I would maybe even lay off the cardio completely for a little while; when I do that, I do actually a rather light routine of 100 crunches and 30-ish curls and that's enough for me to lose weight that day and you're obviously not eating right to bulk up but you'll definitely tighten up a bit. I definitely still have loose skin in areas, don't get me wrong, but it's not so much that it actively bothers me.
Again, that's just me.

One of the primary active ingredients in a lot of diet pills is caffeine, it speeds up your metabolism which helps you burn more calories and lose weight so long as you combine it with limited calorie intake and exercise.
Also 165 isn't a terrible weight, I'd focus more on fat to mussel right now rather than actual weight.

Its not worth the body core elevated tempature= sweat.
Rapid heartbeats, nervousness, mood swings.
Your choice choose wisely

If you have a torrent I would recomend downloading P90X+ KenpoX and IntervalX- 40 minutes a day classes that really help.

You sound like your problem is that you don't have enough muscle mass. As I mentioned above, do squats. This will help you develop muscle in your core and legs. That will take care of the excess fat and help tighten up your skin.
