    Well, I have been lurking around here since the end of April without even a "newby hello - guess I was a little nervous and shy about the forum thing and skeptical about meds in general to help me as most, women like me have been told by Dr's - diet, exercise and the weight will come off, period"....With Phen, I have gone from 183lbs to 161lbs and 19.5 inches, as of this morning (I know some people have achieved alot more but I am okay with slow and steady progess) and yes, I of course owe it to the Phen for curbing my cravings and myself for doing the work but I also owe it to YOU and MANY of the girls/guys on this site. You all are so motiving to me and I really hope that you, Ethansmommy, will stick around for us lurkers (and as creepy as that may sound even though I don't mean it to be AT ALL) because you all keep us going and motivated to march down the healthy path of life and remind us that it is worth the change and sacrafice AND we will succeed if we are determined and keep going! We read your trials, tribulations and most importantly ACCOMPLISHMENTS and know, if you can do it, we can too. That makes us all stronger then we could ever be alone. Congrats on 124 lbs, that is AMAZING! OMG....I hope I will be there someday soon! You look so AWESOME!!!!

    thanks everyone! of course i'll hang around out of all my friends i'm the only sahm and my hubby is at work all day, so my adult interaction is very limited!!

    wannabe- i think i kept going hoping i could b the exception and spot reduce.. unfortunately it didn't happen. overall i'm okay with my stomach i don't think i'll ever call it my best quality but i'm working on it!

    my weight is something i'm always going to have to "watch" so i'll b stepping on the scale everyday still but i'm not worried about losing now..

    lol heather i should b but i'm really not.... but what i do want to do is make an appt for a "checkup" with the doctor who took me off phen bc she said my goal of 135 was "unrealistic" at the weight i was and after having two kids.. whatever!

    thanks so much everyone!

    and no if anyone had told me i'd have seen the 120's again EVER six months ago i'd have called them a liar! so yeah i'm super excited.. i'm trying to tweak my calories and workouts still for maintenance and get over that anxiety to where my stomach doesn't drop when i step on the scale and don't see a loss... i'm so used to hoping to see the scale down at least .2-.4 lbs that it's hard to step on it and just b okay with it staying the same but i'm gonna figure it out!

    Default U R Fabulous!!!

    Hey girly! I have watched your journey as I have traveled on mine! Congrats! Although u and I are doing completly different diets we are meeting our ultimate goals! Losing the weight, getting healthy and feeling better about ourselves! You have done great and I just want to say congrats. My goal weight is/was 120 but the doctor told me that is close to anorexic for my height! U know she may be right. I am changing it to 125! I am at a size 4/6 and I am happy with that and I feel good about myself! That is all that matters! Right! Luv ya!

    Awwww, thank you! It's really hard for me to see it sometimes because I have been heavy all my life. My mom is begging me to stop losing now because she thinks I look to thin! Yeah, whatever! LOL She doesn't have to look at me nekked!

    You better not disappear from the forum! I think people like you who have reached goal are such an inspiration to the rest of us still fighting the good fight!
