I just started Phentermine about a month ago. It has done absolute wonders for me. In just one month I have went from the person who had a gym membership and never walked through the doors, zoned out in front of a computer for hours and shoveled fast food into my mouth every day like it was going out of style, to somebody who enjoys to just get up and strech my legs, throw on the ipod and go for a walk and be absolutly conscious of what food I put into my mouth (ALMOST to the point of obsession!! )
But, despite all of this, I only lost 6 pounds on my first Phentermine weigh in last week. Is this normal? My doctor seemed very disappointed in my small loss. I am in my early 20's and he said he's seen much higher loss from people my age - hell, my mother in her 50s lost 15 and weighed in the same day.
Any suggestions on what I could do to boost the number loss? I was so let down and I really beat myself up over it. Although i'm tired of feeling sorry for myself for being fat, i'm also sick of feeling sorry for myself for not being skinny fast enough. It's a terrible cycle I don't want to be in anymore! I know it didn't take me a month to get into this mess and it won't take a month to get out. Has anybody else had a single digit initial weight loss on the medicine? Any and all comments/suggestions will be appreciated!
