    Welcome, welcome, welcome!
    It doesn't matter all that much how much you lose in the next two months. What matters is that you get closer to your goal than you are today and that you learn everything you need to learn to keep at it and become healthier as you go along.
    You'll get there!
    Don't breathe the air out there right now. That's got to be some atmosphere with all the fires. Do you need us to send you breathing masks so you can go outside and walk for some exercise? LOL

    Hello there!
    It depends on everyone the amount of the caliories intake and excercises. I excercises by walking one to two miles Mon to Fri and 3 miles on weekends to start. I started on phen 3 weeks ago and I lost 17 lbs. I believe it is from the water weight! That is for now... I'll know more later on! Dr gave me first 2 months of phen. I hope he will give me more. I need to lose 95 more pounds! :P
    What I want for Xmas is... an Onederland!!!

    almost!!!

    Hello and welcome! Patience is very important when losing weight. Like you said, it took you a good while to gain all the weight, so losing it won't happen overnight. Just stick with it and you will eventually get to where you want to be.

    Welcome to the "family"! Everybody's weight loss is diff. so don't be discouraged if you don't lose as fast as you want too. Keep following what you're doing, cause you've already lost 53lbs on your own and that's amazing!

    My hubby was born and raised in S.D. also. Told him he had to come half-way across the U.S. to find his soul-mate.

    Hi GoalAchiever760,

    There is no formula to calculate your weight loss from now and on. It only depends on you. You've been doing great this year so hopefully Phentermine will help you to continue this way. Try not to be impatient with numbers and dates, your doctor will prescribe it as far as he thinks you need it.

    You've arrived to the most supportive forums - Welcome!
    Susanne.

    Hello,

    This is my first time posting on a forum, and taking Phentermine so please bear with me. Anyway, I just started taking Phen about two days ago. I was curious to know what kind of results are typical and how soon I should start to see weight loss.

    A little background on me:
    Never fat until high school, gained a ridiculous 115 lbs in five years. My heaviest weight was 295lbs! Good lord, I told myself I would never reach 300 lbs, and I began a diet plan six months ago, and so far, without the aid of prescription pills, I have managed to lose 53 lbs on my own since last January (2008). I reduced calorie intake, and then increased my protein and decreased my carbs. I admit, I slacked off a little bit here and there, resulting in depressing plateaus. It seems that every ten pounds I lose, I plateau for a month after that. This is why I finally decided to ask my doctor about Phentermine, because it worked wonders for my mom (30 lbs lost in 2 months). So basically, my ultimate question is, how much will I lose while taking Phentermine, and how long will it take? Rough estimate of course. I can't be on it for more than two months, as prescribed by my doctor due to chances of addiction or bad sides effects from continuous use. I would also be interested in learning about other supplements that are working for everyone too! I am completely new to supplements.
