Today afer much research, I went to my Dr and asked if she would be interested in putting me on Phen. She said she would and has other patients on it. Her only stipulation is monthly weigh-ins and I MUST lose at least 4 lbs a month.
I am 224lbs (I haven't been on a scale in a while and I was for sure thinking I was about 240) so I was happy to see that I was the same weight I was 6 months ago. The med assistant told me I carried very well, as I giggled when she tried to but the bottom slider of the Dr's scale on 150 to start...I politely moved it to 200 mark and told her that would be more accurate
I am pretty much okay with my weight for the past few years (5 years ago I was a size 4) and I gained about 70-80 lbs over the past few years (stress, anxiety, meds, food for emotion) BUT lately I have been feeling like my size has been hampering some of my lifestyle and that I need to take action on.
I do exercise 5 days a week and eat right at my 3 meals, but my late-night all day snacking is out of control.
I have failed at WW, alli, atkins, you name it I tried it, because of the defeat I feel after I cheat on a diet, I just give up. Plus I think about food all the time!!!!
I took my first pill after I left the Dr. and have not thought about food as much, has any one else experienced this?
Can anyone give me tips on how to keep the willpower to make phen work for you???
Thanks everybody and I look forward to your encouraging words!
