    Thumbs up One month results!!!:)

    Well I have been on phen now for just over a month! I would say overall it has been a good month! No real bad side effects, the only major thing is A LOT of tom.......but I am sure its due to the weight loss and my body adjusting!

    Hi,
    I'm new at this and today is (hopefully ) my first day of loosing weight. I had a daughter at 39 in 2004 and somehow never lost the weight, actually gained more because of my metabolism slowing down due to age and not being as active. All I want is to fit back into my size 10 jeans from BC (before child)....

    Any tips a newby like me can learn from?

    I always wondered what that was. lol

    29 lbs in a month. OMG 6.5 months to loose 25 lbs. I am only loosing 2 lbs a month. Talk about needing to stay focused. My girlfriend lost 30 lbs in 3 months. I don't know why my body fights to take off weight but the dr told me the heavier you are the faster you loose it so I guess I have to accept that as an answer.

    Keep up the good work

    Sold, when you don't have alot to lose it comes off slower....your body can lose just so much of a percentage of your body weight....It took me 3 months to lose over 8 lbs....I have 8 more lbs to go until goal. Just keep up a healthy lifestyle and the weight will come off..don't compare yourself to someone that is bigger than you....
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    Rubenesque - I'm 41 and what used to work for me to lose weight doesn't work now. It's gotten harder the last few years and I kept gaining instead of losing, so I asked my doctor to let me try Phen. I was seeing a neurologist for HA's and was put on meds that had s/e of wt. gain and b/c of back issues he told me no wt. bearing exercises However, I have lost 15 pounds ......... YEAH! You'll find lots of great info on this site!

    I am interested in what your dr has to say about dropping that much weight. I am very very very proud of you doing that and gives me inspiration but it seems like a lot to drop in a short time. Keep up the good work!

    LuckyCharm ~ can I ask what sort of exercise you've been doing? I'm just curious because I've got ALOT of weight to lose. I just finished my first week of Phen & lost 8 pounds & was extatic! I didn't exercise my first week, per Dr.'s orders. He wanted me to give my body a week to adjust to the Phen before starting exercise. He told me after a week I could start walking. He wants me to take it slow at first & said I could walk as far as I wanted to, but I should probably set a mild pace for the first couple of weeks.

    I have noticed I have a HUGE change in energy levels. I actually want to get up off of the couch & DO something, anything! My house has been much cleaner this last week as I felt the need to stay busy & have been srubbing away.....lol

    I am new to Phen and just started 1/2 a pill each day. Today is my sixth day. The first day I felt a bit dizzy but after that it was fine. My question is how quickly did you see results. I weight myself after 3 days and of course it was the same, I feel my clothes looser but the weight so far seems the same. When did you see real weight loss? Anyone?

    Thats exactly what my dr wanted from me. He actually didn't want me to start exc till week three., and I have but its really just basic stuff mostly cardio right in my own living room. Don't get me wrong I work A LOT. 10-12 hours 5 days a week. But I have don't that for 5 yrs and still didn't loose the weight. I can honestly say its my eating habits. I changed them like over night. Not saying its perfect but i would say 99.99 percent better. I drink lots of water with my meals.......i am going into my 6th week on phen and have noticed the appitite has came back a lil more......but with all the water it keeps me filled and i can still get my carlories that i need. So good luck to you and hopefully we can keep those good numbers coming in........

    I go to the DR tomorrow............haven't been weighed at all since my last date so we will see!!!!!
    Wish me luck.......

    Thank you for sharing Shiann! And Good Luck at your weigh in!!!! We're rooting for you!

    I'm kind of the opposite of you in some parts. I sit behind a desk all day at work & don't get any exercise. I also have this huge issue of not eating all day long & only eating dinner (before Phen.). But, I would drink Coke all day long, and usually consume 8-12 Cokes in a single day. I did & still do eat ALOT of ice thru out the day. It's something that I started doing about a year ago & I constantly crave ice.....lol. On a normal day I go thru 3-4 44oz. cups of ice.

    Since starting Phen. I have stopped drinking Coke all together. I managed to get myself down to only having 1 Sprite every other day last week. This week I have only had 2 Sprites & next week I plan on cutting it out all together. I was amazed how easy it was to give up drinking Coke on the Phen. I'm thinking that it's likely because of the whole dry mouth issue & Coke doesn't help w/ that.....lol.

    I have been forcing myself to eat thru out the day & change my diet. So far it's been working out well. I'm fortunate because I love salad & veggies and they make for a quick snack and/or meal.

    Hi,

    My first time on Phen I did not see the scale move but saw the body change. After a few months I learned that my body changes and then my weight loss would show on the scale. The numbers don't always mean you are not changing your body or losing weight. Be happy your clothes are fitting looser and enjoy the time.

    Congrats to everyone who is losing and keep up the great work! I am starting my journey again so wish me some luck
    Trying to get on track once again...
