    Welcome to the forum and this thread Giseletdesouza, how are you finding the phentermine so far? Have you weighed in yet?

    Hey loobylonglegs, you're welcome, glad to hear that you're nearly there at the 200 mark - so close now! My work christmas meal was good actually, I ate pretty healthy - it was mainly fish and seafood like octopus and mussels but I don't like seafood so I ended up having tuna lettuce wraps for starters and makerel in this green sauce for main, so I had lots of omega 3s and protein! As it was on my boss and it's nearly Christmas, I had dessert too - hazelnut ice cream, which was delicious! I still have a real sweet tooth so I often like the dessert best

    Hey gmd518, how is your rash now? I hope it's cleared up, that sounds very annoying

    I was 139 again this Monday when I weighed but that's good since I've had a few more cheat meals and the odd drink here and there what with meeting up with friends before Christmas, birthday things and the work party so I am actually really happy to see that I can maintain despite all that. And I can see how I have a lot more control than I used to and also eating out fills me up so much that I just naturally then eat light the next day because I can't handle much more than that, kinda like naturally regulating my calorie intake over the week - I feel like I found the secret formula maybe....?

    Hi Tanya, thank you! I weighed on Monday and was 201 so I am going to weigh again tomorrow to see if I can make it to under 200!! If not I'll weigh Saturday too lol. Bluergh, octopus!?? I don't blame you for not eating that! Oh but that hazelnut ice cream sounds amazing, I never heard of that before mmm I have a sweet tooth too.

    That's great that you have found the key to maintaining, I heard that it can be harder than losing, I guess because you're just waiting for the scales not to change every week, kind of an anti-climax goal when you step on the scales, woot woot, same as last week! I get what you mean about having to eat less after a day when you ate more. I feel so full in the evenings after dinner, I wonder how I used to eat cookies and candy at night, I have no room for anything until the next day now.

    Hey loobylonglegs, did you weigh over Christmas? If so did you make it below 200? If not you still have a couple more days of 2016 left! How did you spend Christmas? It was nice to have a long weekend as I had Monday off but it meant more work yesterday, gotta be the worst thing about my job that work just piles up when I'm not here!

    It's true, maintaining is kind of weird. I guess I'm not there yet as I am still hoping to lose a bit more but if I just maintain at 139 and hopefully improve my overall body composition then that would be great too. I forgot to weigh on Monday morning as I got confused and thought it was Sunday at first lol, so I weighed yesterday and was still 139, so even the holidays didn't put a dent in my record

    Hey Tanya! Yes I weighed on the 24th and wasn't at 200 yet, but I was so so good over Christmas and weighed like you on Tuesday when I was back in the usual swing of things and was right on 200 - I just wanna be UNDER!! I'm going to weigh tomorrow tho, my last chance in 2016. Fingers crossed I can get the 199 up!!

    Great work staying on 139, how much would I love to weigh that!! I just wanted to say thank you so much for your support and for being on here even when I wasn't, it's nice to have someone to chat to and to catch up with. Hopefully you'll come on here still even if you're not on phentermine? Anyways, Happy New Year!!!

    Hey loobylonglegs! Happy New Year! Thanks for what you said, very sweet of you!! I'll still be on here yeah, and I finished phentermine now which is very very weird. I'm looking for a supplement maybe to help me if you or anyone else knows of any that actually work, even just a little bit?

    Did you weigh on the 31st? How did it go? And how was your NYE? We had a family party at my mom's, 9 of us altogether plus 5 kids so it got crazy as the house isn't very big! I had a couple drinks to toast the new year but I ate pretty healthy, we even had a salad with strawberries and pomegranate seeds in and to be honest that was one of my faves, so delicious!

    I read that yesterday is the date of the year we all weigh the most, so I didn't get too upset when I saw I was at 140 after a couple weeks at 139. A little bummed maybe but I plan to get down again and hopefully get to about 135 over the next couple months.

    Hey Tanya, glad to hear that you're sticking around! I can't say I've personally tried any supplements that really work, but what about the one on this site, the phencaps? I saw some good things about them so maybe they could work for you?

    I did weigh on the 31st but was still 200!! But then I weighed on Monday and was 199 - wootwoot!! I hope the other pounds come off easier than that last one of the 200s because that really didn't want to let go! Anyways, happy to be starting a new year with a new weight and lots of intentions to keep this going. And hey, if yesterday was the day of the year I weigh the most then this is a great sign!

    That salad sounds delicious - since I went veggie I got to love salads actually, I just throw anything in there but I've never actually put strawberries in a salad - pineapple all the time, and orange too, so I will have to try strawberries. My NYE was good, we went to my husband's brother's house and celebrated there with a small party. I as good too, just one beer and one sparkling wine and lots of water all night.

    Default Back on the wagon

    It's been a few months since I posted. My doctor took me off Phentermine at the end of October. By the first of the year, I hadn't lost anymore, but I had only gained back 1.8 lbs of the 38 I lost. So she started me back on Phentermine Saturday. She said this was the last round she was going to put me on (only my second round). She wants me to try Belviq maybe after this round. Anyone try that before?

    Here's to hoping I have as good luck as I did this last summer/fall I was on it!

    Hey everyone!

    So I was kinda scared to post on Monday because I felt like a failure. I was doing so well, I even got down to 139 in December but then on Monday I was at 142. It was a 2lb gain from the week before but it didn't make sense to me. To make things worse I checked later that day at the gym and they said my bodyfat percentage had gone up by 2% in the last 5 weeks, so I can't even say that I've gained muscle I was really down on Monday and I knew it was stupid but it was mostly because I didn't know why. The girl who weighed me at the gym said, 'Well it's been the holidays, people eat more, don't come to the gym so much...' and I protested, but I have been coming, at least 3 times a week, most weeks 4 or 5 times, and my diet has been more or less the same. I mean, I only had a day off for Christmas and one for New Year so it's not like I was sat on the couch bingeing for a week basically like I used to when I lived with my parents. I've been stricter with my eating so far this week, eating more fruit and veg and less of the treats I was starting to sneak in from time to time. The thing that upset me was the girl at the gym, the way she looked at me like she thought I was lying about what I was eating, it felt like I was nearly 200lbs again and being judged, like someone who says they eat healthily and people just look at your belly and are like, 'yeah right'.

    Anyways, it won't put me off going to the gym as I love it, and healthy eating is me for good now. I just need to make my brain realize I'm a good weight now, not where I want to be exactly but nearly. I just don't want this 2lbs gain to turn into 10lbs.

    Loobylonglegs, amazing!! I'm so happy for you, how did it feel to see the 199? What a great start to the new year And thanks for your tip, I was edging towards ordering phen caps and then when I weighed on Monday I bit the bullet and ordered a bottle. I'm hoping they give me a boost and make me stay strong when I crave cookies or sweets. I love pineapple in salads too! And stir fries, and on pizza. Such a versatile fruit Your New years sounds nice, and good work with keeping to mostly water!

    Hey Careasa, that's good that you gained less than 2lbs on all that time without phentermine. I'm off it since the end of last year and already gained back more than that I'm hoping I can switch things round! I haven't heard of Belviq, is it a brand of phentermine or a different med completely?

    Hello everyone! I've been on Phen since Nov. 1 and thought I'd join. My ultimate goal is to get to around 139. I used to be between 132-138 before getting married and having kids. Since having kids my willpower and energy have gone down the drain. I gain a ton of weight with my first - topping off at about 220 which is way too much for my 5'5" frame. After giving birth I got down to about 170 but then with my second I was back up to about 200 at delivery. After that I couldn't seem to lose weight and got really discouraged. My friend had been on Phen a long time ago and I decided to try it because I needed to curb my cravings and more energy.

    So here I am. I've hit my first goal of under 180 which means I am no longer classified as obese. That feels good but still have a long way to go. Right now I have a prescription that will take me to March 22 and we will see whether I continue on Phen after that. How long have you guys been on/off Phen? Is it difficult to keep losing once you go off Phen? Even though I've lost 16.5 pounds, I don't think that anyone else notices. I feels that my clothes fit better and my belly is smaller, but I am still the same size.

    Hi Gobola! Welcome to the thread! It sounds like you're doing great, and I like how you presented your stats and goals at the end. That's great that you're no longer classed as obese by BMI. I'm 5'4" so I am around the same goal-wise. My ideal weight is 130, in the middle of the normal range, as at the moment I'm still teetering on the edge at 142lbs. Even down to 135 would be great. I've actually stopped taking phentermine now as I was on and off it for over a year, from September 2015 to the end of last year. In that time I had maybe 3 months off total and mostly I could maintain my weight or lose some. I swear by writing down what you eat and what exercise you do, more or less. I don't write 3 x 10 pushups or anything, just an idea of what routine I did or what class. I think ability to keep weight off depends a lot on how you lose it. Before I used to eat way less, lose weight and then put it back on because I started eating more again. This time I've really gotten into exercising and just made small changes that I can stick to for good.

    It does take a while for other people to notice, I know that's how it was with me too. I didn't want to shout out about my weight loss to other people like my work colleagues but I think my mom noticed after I lost maybe 15lbs, she said she noticed in my face. Other people took longer to see it, or say anything.

    Anyways, good luck, you're doing great!!

    It is different med all together. From what I've read so far, it has depression symptoms as a side effect, and that worries me. I'm thinking by the time I finish this round on Phentermine it'll be about time for my yearly visit, so I can talk to her more about it. I completely get what you were meaning that just a small gain makes you feel you are back to where you started.

    Ive noticed so far that I am having the cotton mouth, sleep problems, and constipation issues I had the first time I started it, but I'm feeling hungrier than I did the last time, so it's been a struggle to not over eat.

    i would love to lose 38 or more lbs like I did last time, but I'd be happy to just lose 30 more, I'm at 209 right now, was at 246.8 when I started in June. I've lost 1.6 lbs this first week.

    Hi Careasa - have you talked to your doctor about Qsymia? I think it is lower dose Phen plus Topiramate and I think you are allowed to be on it longer that just Phentermine. I wanted to compare the two, but the place I went to only prescribes Phentermine so that's what I am on.

    I haven't weighed yet this week, but haven't been feeling especially motivated. I am going to add working out so that I can keep off what I lose. I'll weigh tomorrow and update! I really don't feel like I lost much if anything this week. Too much going on that I haven't been so careful with my eating. I am getting back to it starting today though! Hopefully I haven't gone too far backward!!

    Tanya - You've done amazing on Phen! The thing that gives me a little more hope is that people seem to be able to be on it longer than 3 months. It seems like I'd need to be on it for more like 4-6 months to get to the point where I can maintain on my own.

    Grrr...so I weighed myself and I gained almost a pound. I am at 180.4. Well I think it was the kick in the pants I needed to get back on track!! I know there are ups and downs, but I really went off track for a couple days. Right back at it now. I know that less than a pound is not much but it's the scale going in the WRONG direction!! And it puts me right back in the OBESE category.

    Today I am recommitted and going to a Barre class. Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!!!

    Default Phen Caps

    What are phen caps? Let me know how that works out for you, is it the same as Phentermine. I started back on Phentermine Jan 1 after being off since June of last year. I gained all my weight back and a little more, simple because I did a lot of drinking and eating. My fault. I have lost 10 pounds in the last two weeks (mostly water) but I have included working out this time around so I hope that will help. I'm 5'4, 160 pds, with a goal of 125-130. I can do this? Will the doc not prescribe phentermine any longer to you?

    Hi Careasa, for some people phentermine has depression side effects too, I see it a lot more on here than I used to, and on the blog comments too, it seems to be getting that people are noticing more psychological effects with phentermine than I remember before, like anger, anxiety and depression. I can't say I've experienced anything like that though, it's been mainly positive effects on that score for me. Well done on the 1.6lb lost your first week, and hopefully the side effects will start to wear off.

    Hey Gobola, thank you! I was on it a looong time though, 16 months nearly on and off. I guess with the breaks it was about a year total. I think it depends what state you're in how long your doctor is allowed to prescribe the phen. some states are really strict like Ohio is 3 months and that's it. I'm always real surprised when I see people who take it for years and years, I even spoke to someone who took it for 7 years straight. For me that's pretty irresponsible of the doctor. Sorry about the gain but at least you know where you went wrong. What's barre class, like ballet? It sounds interesting...

    Hey loreal.estee, phen caps are a supplement so they're not the same as phentermine but they are natural and you can buy them online so I thought I would give them a go. My order came on Friday so I started Saturday, so today is 5 days taking them and I think they are pretty great. Without even really noticing I've realized that I had way less sweet cravings these last couple days. Even Sunday when I was at home all afternoon doing chores and really bored I wasn't craving cookies like usual. I do pretty good for energy since I started exercising but I think they could help for that too as I feel good on them. So far I'm liking them a lot. Anddd, the moment of truth was that I was BACK down to 139 on Monday!! wootwoot. Maybe it was the phen caps, maybe not but all the same, I'm happy to be back in the 130s.

    Really, coming off phentermine was something I wanted too, I have heard so many horror stories about how they affect you when you take them for too long. Plus I really didn't feel like I got anything from the phentermine the last couple months. It was more of a psychological thing, like taking the pill reminded me to be good with my eating. I guess it makes sense though, the longer you take phentermine the more it becomes you doing the work, and then when you go off it it's like you tell your mom to take your training wheels off and she admits she already did lol.

    Good luck with your weight loss goals too - you absolutely CAN do this!!
