“I have always been overweight and I was always frustrated that it was so hard to lose weight. I tried every diet I could Google from low carb, to low fat, to only carbs.”
Chrissy decided to lose weight while planning her wedding. Nine months before the ceremony she decided that she didn’t want to “feel fat” on her big day and asked her doctor about phentermine. Thanks to her recent weight loss, this motivated woman now has the energy and freedom to take part in activities that she would have surely avoided before (like zip lining!). Dealing with the guilt of cheat days can be hard, but Chrissy has also noticed that she can’t finish big meals like before anyway. Her advice is to take your weight loss one day at a time and listen to your body’s hunger cues. Also take pictures and measurements so that you can see your progress, even if the number on the scale isn’t moving as much as you’d like. Finally, she’s a big fan of Phentermine.com’s support group on Facebook and says it’s a great place to ask questions and get answers and encouragement from other phentermine users like you!

“I’ve lost 35 pounds with phentermine so far. I still have a 25 lb goal. But I do not have a set date to lose it by. I just go at my own pace. When I set a goal I get extremely disappointed if I fail and I tend to give up. I just remind myself to keep pushing and that I can do it on my own time limit.”
Melissa asked about phentermine after being put on medication for high cholesterol. She was already on blood pressure medication and had trouble keeping up with her 5-year-old daughter. Her young child provides constant motivation to get healthy. Melissa initially struggled to give up soda and energy drinks, but now avoids energy drinks all together and only drinks 1-2 sodas per week. She says the most rewarding part of her weight loss has been the ability to play and run with her daughter, and her doctor decreasing her blood pressure medication. Melissa offers some great advice about making lifestyle changes: “Start slowly. Most people make multiple huge changes all at once and they end up failing. Make 1-2 small changes at a time. [For example], increase your water intake and cut portion sizes. Do this for a month or two then add 1-2 more changes. In my experience, when I change everything all at once I give up extremely quickly. Since trying things with a different approach I have had great results.”

“I’ve lost over 30 pounds with phentermine so far!”
Mayling started her phentermine journey after seeing a “before” picture that acted as her wake-up call. She says the biggest challenge has been not letting others (her husband, family, etc.) dictate her goals for her. Now, after losing the weight, she is excited about wearing smaller clothes, her increased stamina and energy, and better self-control. Mayling advises others to decide why they’re embarking on this journey and not give up. Above all, make sure that you’re losing weight for YOU and take pride in the fact that you’re moving closer to your goals each day. Don’t give up!

“I have been able to follow my food plan without any cravings, and I have a tremendous amount of energy which has me exercising the way I did years ago!”
Jenna embarked on her phentermine journey after gaining weight during the pregnancies of her second and third children. She was a fit kid and never struggled with being overweight until the birth of her first baby. As a new mother Jenna gained over 100 lbs. Amazingly, she eventually worked all of that weight off with diet and exercise alone. However, after gaining another 110 lbs during her second and third pregnancies, this young mom knew she had to take control. Her turning point was when she couldn’t even recognize herself in a video.
Jenna started Weight Watchers and lost 90 lbs by adopting healthier habits. Unfortunately, she eventually plateaued, couldn’t resist the cravings and started yo-yoing. That’s when a friend mentioned phentermine. With the help of this medication, Jenna began sticking to her food and exercise plans again and dropped those extra pounds.
After losing weight with phentermine, this mother of three says it’s been hard to re-learn how to dress her new body – hello high heels, tucked-in shirts, and low necklines! Still, the extra energy she has to play with her kids and renewed self-confidence in her body make it totally worth it. Her advice for other phentermine users is great: “Don’t give up if you have a small set back. They happen. It didn’t take one day or one week for you to get where you are… it won’t take one day or one week to get where you want to be either. It’s a process and a journey. Be good to yourself and make your rewards be attainable… and not related to food.”

“I then heard of phentermine, and gave it a try. I decided if I was going to finally make a change I would do it right this time – so I ate healthy, began a 30 minute a day, 5 days a week gym routine and the weight started to fly off.”
Michel was overweight his entire life, topping 200 lbs in high school and over 300 lbs in college. Despite his fun and outgoing nature, his weight held him back from lots of things. He wasn’t taking part in social functions, trips, or pursuing his music and theater dreams. He knew he needed to change when he realized everything he was missing. Still, it was hard because he loved food, loved eating, and struggled with overeating in general. After trying multiple celebrity-endorsed, over-the-counter diet pills with no success, Michel heard about phentermine.
He says the hardest part of getting healthy was learning self-control in social situations. It’s challenging to go out with friends and not snack constantly, especially when others aren’t making the same healthy choices. That being said, he loves people’s reactions when they see him after a long while and don’t recognize him because he’s so much skinnier. He was especially thrilled when a salesperson told him he was so thin that he needed a slim-cut suit! These phentermine before and after pictures show his phenomenal weight loss success.

“This absolutely changed my life in a matter of 6-7 months! I’ve lost about 60 lbs and have never felt better.”
Andrea decided to lose weight when she realized how much being overweight was lowering her self-esteem. She had rapidly gained about 40 pounds in five months’ time and couldn’t lose it no matter what she did. That’s when Andrea decided to talk to her doctor about a phentermine prescription. Now she’s lost almost 60 pounds, feels better than ever, and loves saving money by skipping the drive-thru. Her biggest struggle is eating healthy while her husband sits next to her snacking on junk food. But, like many others, she loves the newfound energy to keep up with her kids! For all the phentermine users out there, she says “Things can get better if you want it bad enough!!”.

“I get stopped in the hallway at work and people tell me how awesome I look. Men check me out!!!”
Sarah was always a “big girl” growing up, and it worsened as she got older. Despite aging, she continued to eat like she was sixteen and put on the pounds little by little. At her heaviest, Sarah weighed 239 lbs and was embarrassed to be tagged in pictures on social media or go out with men. That’s when she decided to make a change and talked to her doctor about phentermine. This weight loss star has lost almost forty pounds already, and loves the compliments she receives from coworkers. Sarah works closely with her doctor to set realistic goals (10 lbs per month) and watches her portions on a low-sodium diet. For exercise, she chases toddlers around all day at work and just joined the gym with a girlfriend. Sarah says the hardest part has been partying less, but she loves when guys check her out and the feeling of too big jeans falling off her now-smaller hips.
