You are doing great!!!!
Thanks everyone! Yeah I know a loss is much better than a gain. And I am greatful. Yeah I agree i need not use the word "only 7lbs" (or whatever the # is ) A loss is awesome.. Thanks for the supporrt. I know 7 lbs is great start. I will continue my journey.
Thanks for calling me out on "only". I thought about that after I posted it.
Have a great week-end.
Ladies.........2 lbs is healthy. Anything over that is a bonus. I agree with Dbeth.....delete the word only from your vocab! Any loss is a loss and puts you closer to your goal so accept them and be happy with them! Do some of us lose more in our 1st month? Sure! But that is not always the best! Also remember, the bigger you are the more you will usually lose at first. Everyone is different. Do your part and the Pills will do thiers.

Whew! So glad you posted! I think 7lbs is great!
This is my first week and I've lost 3lbs. I was hoping for more but I'll take 3 lbs!
You're a week ahead of me so I guess next week I can get excited about the possibility of being down 7lbs!
let's keep going - i'm sure it'll all add up before we know it!

okay i am probably going to get in trouble for this, but i see this so much. "i ONLY lost 7...8...or 9 pounds" in a week...or two even! i mean, that is a LOT of weight. what do u expect? sorry if that sounds mean, but you didn't gain all of the weight overnight, and it's not going to come off overnight. you should consider yourself very lucky and be very proud because as we've all been told 1-2 pounds a week is typical. i'm not trying to pick on you...it's just that people say there here SO much and i'm like are u serious when u say ONLY? seriously.......that is great loss. u wouldn't say i ONLY gained 7 pounds in 2 weeks, right? and putting on weight is ten times (no, a hundred times) easier than getting it off. please change your way of thinking about this for your own sanity and success.

thanks everyone for the support. I am greatful for the loss. I know it will take time to lose. Its great to have the support here. Thanks again. Congrats on everyones weight loss! Thats so awesome!
7lbs is great! Its not a miracle drug and it works slowly because it is not good for you to lose weight too fast. I started on the 9th and just weighed in for the 1st time last night - 12lbs down! I am very happy with that!
you are doing great my dr told me expect a pound a week 4 pounds a month and if i exceed it then great! im only @ 2.5 and ive been on it 4 days im drinking a lot of water i heard it was a booster
I agree....a loss is a loss...much better than a gain.....relax, sometimes it takes time to get the hang of things.
7lbs to goal

Hello! I started Phen on June 12th. I dont go back to the doctors until July 11th.
Anyway, I weighed today and I have only lost 7 lbs But I guess losing something is better than gaining. I also lost 2.5 inches. I guess thats something. But it is slow going. Anyway, just thought I would share!
