Today is my 2nd day on Phentermine. Other than feeling "cloudy" and noticable dry mouth, I feel fine!
I weigh 237 lbs and my lower back and left knee have really stopped me from exercising. I am constantly injuring one or the other. I also have issues with a "bottomless pit" around my menstrual cycle and emotional eating.
I sought the help of a weight doctor because I wanted to know what was wrong with me!!!!!!!!!!!
I have tried and failed miserably on different programs over the last few years.
Through filling out the doctors questionaire, i realized that there was a 10 year window of time where my weight just ballooned. During that 10 years there were 2 significant "trama" life changes that occured.
I am at fault but I am doing something about it. I dont think the weight loss will come back after the meds are stopped as long as you keep going with the new healthy lifestyle (exercise) and eating habits... the doctor has me on a 1200 cal. diet for the first month and gave me a list of the foods, recipes and a "plan" to follow along with exercising for at least 20 mins/3 times per day.
My old life got me to being at my highest weight of 248.. My new life will get me to a health weight and lifestyle.
I am getting married in May and hope to be a little thinner than I am now.
My goal is to be 150 lbs (eventually). I am hoping to be 190 by the time of the wedding. I am 5'6'' and dont have a large frame. I have been blessed with hips so even at 130 (many years ago), i still had hips... hahaha i dont think i can get rid of those....
