    Lifestyle, it's just obvious. Let us be clear: weight loss and phentermine should not be a lifestyle but the healthy habits you learn thru its journey are, since thanks to them you get healthier and feel younger .

    Diet is temporary however lifestyle are the changes you practice everyday to get lasting or permanent results. so in my opinion its better to lifestyle. Since I have been on phen I have learned so much about my body, food and health and without noticed I started to put that knowledge on my everyday for example I count my calories it doesnt matter if Im going top eat an hamburger or a hot dog I still count them so next day I know exactly how many calories have to lose

    Lifestyle changes don't have to be super hard if you take small steps. Things like downsizing dish sizes will help build new, smaller portioned lifestyle choices

    Default Lifestyle!!

    I've tried SO MANY diets and I always end-up gaining the weight back. Lifestyle is the ONLY way to do this.

    I really hope the phen works and can help me get started on the right track this time!

    HelenaJackson, Do body wraps really work? I've heard about them from so many different people and I just wonder if you notice a difference? I've been going back and forth about trying them... Thanks!

    Data shows that permanent lifestyle changes are the only ones that guarantee that the weight you lose will not come back, or even continue to lose weight after your weight loss treatment or diet is over.

    I 100% agree, "to lifestyle" is the only way to really lose it for good.

    My weight loss journey:

    07/01/2013 - started on phentermine weighing 263lbs
    07/15/2013 - began a combination of phentermine and phen caps
    10/01/2013 - phentermine script finished, switched to just phen caps
    11/11/2013 - 50lbs Down
    01/13/2014 - Officially under 200lbs and determined to stay in onderland!
    03/03/2014 - 75lbs Down
    09/23/2014 - 100lbs Down

    The problem with the word diet is you die-while doing it. Then as soon as you reach your goal you go back to eating like you use to and gain all the weight back. Until a person who is over weight learns how to eat healthy and in moderation they will be forever on a diet of some kind. I am not on a diet this time around; I’m on a life style change. That is what has to happen for me to loose weight and keep it off for good.

    Completely agree that it has to be a lifestyle change. I did Phentermine almost 3 years ago and lost 60 pounds at the time. I've kept off 50 pounds in the time since. I found Maintenance a struggle initially because I was more focused on the scale and "rigor" of losing weight as opposed to enjoying the lifestyle advantages that came as a result of losing the weight. Since then, I've biked with my kids on a regular basis, enjoyed walking for hours through the Mall with my girls - to buy or just to browse among a host of other things.
    The "diet" mentality eventually faded and although I still weigh myself often, the lifestyle change is the new routine - not the diet.

    Default Thanks

    Thanks for the goal setting advice. Id like to add that people should also consider watching "The Secret". Its a movie about visualizing your goals in your mind to motivate you. After I watched it, I did what it said, and 5 hours later I found this forum!

    I know it doesn't seem like a big deal, but its enough proof to me that it works. Used your tips for the head to toe photo.

    Default To Diet Or To Lifestyle

    Step one to a new lifestyle.
    It seems there is always the latest frenzy of diets.
    Brand name diets come and go as quickly as Octomom
    is having babies. Then there are the “Extreme” diets.

    I would say over 95% of diets out there work. I do
    question ones health on extreme diets that
    advertise losing 7-10 pounds per week; when a
    healthy weight loss should be no more than
    2-3 pounds a week.

    The problem with the word “DIET” is that you can't
    stay on them forever. One could end up with serious
    health issues staying on an “Extreme” diet over the
    recommended length of time.

    Forget the diets, forget the calorie counting unless
    you're a professional athlete. How about a lifestyle
    change. Make a decision, a promise to change the
    way you're eating, to excersie consistently, to have
    a new LIFESTYLE on your own health.

    Start by a decision. Write your goals down on a
    3 x 5 card and place it on your bathroom mirror.
    The goals should be:
    How much do you want to weigh.
    When do you want to achieve the new weight.

    Be realistic on the time issue. You shouldn't be
    losing anymore than 2-3 pounds a week after your
    first 2 weeks of your new lifestyle.

    Take a head to toe photo. Take measurements of
    arms, chest, waist, hips (if female) and thighs. Get
    serious, take your lifestyle by the horns.
    The best of you is yet to come!!
