So I have been off of Qsymia for 2 weeks now. The clinic I go to had a pipe burst and had lots of water damage. My appointment was rescheduled for October 29 a little less than a week and I can be back on Qsymia. I have only lost 2 lbs so I'm glad but at the same time frustrated because I really wanted to be under 200 lbs November since I'm having a Tubal Reversal on November 9 (I know sounds crazy but we are going to wait a couple months so I can lose so more weight before we actually try to get pregnant)! On the flip side I haven't gained any weight and I did lose those 2 lbs by myself so I am at 212 lbs now. I have been watching what I eat and also lots of portion control. I have had cravings which for the most part I have ignored and if I give in I only have a small portion to take the craving away and make sure I jump on the treadmill for a few minutes.
I had a friend come over yesterday that I hadn't seen in about 2 months and we were sitting on the couch and she finally said "your face looks slimmer" to which I told her I had been losing weight and had lost 23 lbs so far. When she was leaving she turned to look at me and said "Wow, you look good, what a difference! I'm so proud of you!" I was on a total high the rest of the day! Since I have a daycare I don't get out much to see my friends so to have someone notice (besides my husband) made me feel great. I'm staying motivated and pushing through!
