My name is April, I am a 23 year old stay at home mom. My friend Melissa referred me here and she just started the Phentermine. Well, where do I start? I am about 5' 8''. I have weighed 155ish lbs my entire adult life and been perfectly happy. I do not like "skinny" girls and always thought I was perfect. I always had a tiny tummy and I liked it
Here is what I looked like when I thought I was beautiful
I was 155 here and in all of these photos
So I got pregnant January 2007. I had my daughter 6 weeks early on September 18, 2007, I gained 6lbs my entire pregnancy, this is me 8 months pregnant
The day after my daughter's birth, I weighed 162. Fast forward 2 months to my post partum visit, I was at 151.
I checked my doctor's records today when I went and they said the last time I was there was in March 2008, I weighed 158, I found out I weighed over 200lbs in October, so within 7 months, I gained almost 65lbs.
Today I went in and they took 6 tubes of blood, they are testing my thyroid and for type 2 diabetes, it doesn't run in my family but I had gestational diabetes and I hear the risk is higher of developing type 2 diabetes after I've had that.
So after I rule these out, I would like to start with Phentermine. Problem is, I am a stay at home mom, I do not have insurance, and I paid to go to the doctor and have this testing done today and the lady looked at me, and said with a nasty tone, we do not prescribe "weight loss" medication here .
So the only option I have is to pay to go to a different doctor, or buy it online, I found one at a very fair price, but I looked at it today and it was spelled differently, so I am assuming its a knock off or something, here is the link
I am a little heavier than this now
You can see the difference and this was about 40lbs lighter than I am now.
Now here is my major problem, I AM able to work out, and eat whatever needed, I do not think the problem is WHAT I eat, its WHEN I eat. My husband gets home from work around 1am and we usually eat then because we are both on that crappy schedule. I can change that though and plan on it!!
I am unable to do the awesome classes that they prove at my Gold's Gym due to osteoarthritis and possibly a torn meniscus. I've ruined my body so young.
I plan on walking a few miles daily with my friend Melissa and I will probably go alone a few miles in the morning also. I just need SOMETHING to help get me started, I have never been a sad person, however at the appointment today they did a depression screening and said I am depressed.
Do you have any places online that you know are safe to buy this from that you've used? Or know how much the prescription is offhand without insurance? I also would need to find a doctor that would prescribe it if I am going that route. Thanks in advance
