I went off phen 3 yrs ago because we couldn't afford it any longer. I had successfully lost 55 lbs in 8 months, taking me from a size 18/20 to a 10/12. Unfortunately I also stopped exercising regularly because we had to cancel our YMCA membership the same month-same reason. I was ok and held my own for a few months, but because of the financial stress my former bad eating habits crept back in. It took me 3 yrs but I have regained 35 lbs again before I finally saved up the $$ to order more phen and get back on track last week. I don't know if I'm unusual or typical, I don't remember seeing this addressed before but I'm sure it was at some point. Good luck to you!
