    I definitly wouldn't listen to her. She is probably jealous and for a nurse she must have no clue how to do things in a healthy way. That's a great case of foot in mouth! Good job doing it the healthy way!

    I have to question whether she was really a nurse, because being non-judgemental was really hammered into us in nursing school. Nevertheless, next time you can tell her, that her opinion is unwanted and unappreciated. By the way, she can get sued for even inadvertently handing out advice like that. You look GREAT! IGNORE THE BUSYBODY!!!

    Thanks girls for making me feel better about the conversation. I thought maybe I was just being sensitive. It just bothers me when people assume that because you are taking something that you don't have to make choices on your own. Or that you have to work at it.

    Idiots come from all walks of life. Don't spend another moment reflecting on the stupid comments of that nurse. You are doing an awesome job, and you look amazing.

    I started with high protien/low carb for the first month. I also try to get in 30 minutes a day of high cardio (sometimes gym, sometimes outside playing with kids, ect). I also am learning that I don't have to clean my plate. Water, water, water and portion size are other things I do. Basically I am just more aware of what goes in. If I want that slice of pizza or two or however many, then I calculate how much I have to work out to burn it off. Sometimes it's worth it, sometimes it's not. Potatoes and bread are out except for the occasional treat. It was hard the first couple of days, but it is easier now.

    You are doing great and don't get discouraged by what the scale says. Many times my scale won't move or if it does it's small and I measure and find out that lots of inches are gone.

    You have nothing to feel uncomfortable about. It isn't like you are going to use phen your entire life to maintain a weight loss, just to help teach yourself the good habits and break the old ones. You have had huge success with your weight loss and phen or no phen, YOU did it. The nurse needs to go fly a kite somewhere in mozambique or something. Can't help but think if it had been me, I would have had to tell her that she should try phen and then maybe her fat arse wouldn't have come back!!
    Get thin and God Bless! Gina


    I swear I'm trapped in that body somewhere!

    Congrats! She was just jealous - now who hired her? You don't tell people not to eat to lose weight!!! WTF? Anyways, I am the same way - I will not ask for help unless I really need it. I see Phen as a jump start to becoming more healthy! You look great and I know you can do it by yourself and maintain your goal weight! Good luck!

    What a dumb a s s nurse. She of all people should know better than to lose weight by not eating. I was just telling our security guard how unhealthy that is the other night. He has lost a huge amount of weight over the past month or two and brags that he just doesn't eat anymore.
    Congratulations on the weight loss. You have done a great job so far. Keep it up!

    Default Uncomfortable at 2 1/2 month weigh in

    Yesterday I went to my doc for my 2 month weigh in. Because of my vacation and his it ended up being 2 1/2 months.
    So I'm sitting in the room and a new nurse comes in to take my BP and temp and stuff. I have never met this nurse before. So she looks at my chart then at me and back at the chart. This is the conversation that happened:

    nurse: "oh, I see that you are taking Phen."
    me: "Yes."
    nurse: "I see that you have lost 30 pounds"
    me: "yes"
    nurse: "Well last year I lost 46 pounds on my own"
    me: "that's great. I'm sure you felt better."
    nurse: "yes, I didn't use any drugs just did it on my own"
    at this point I'm starting to feel somewhat uncomfortable.
    me: " that's great"
    nurse: "yep, I just decided to not eat. I stopped eating"
    me: "that doesn't seem very healthy"
    nurse: "well, I did it on my own with no help"
    me: "oh"
    nurse: "Of course it came back and then some"
    me: "that is why the Phen is helping me. I'm learning portion control. In fact I've been off for a couple of days here and there and it's been OK"
    nurse: "well, I don't really need the help of drugs to lose, I just need to get focused."

    So then the doc comes in and raves that I have surpassed anything he had hoped. He asked me what else I'm doing other than the Phen. I told him that I log everything I eat and exercise. That I am using the Phen to help, not as a miracle pill that does all of the work. He said I am the first person he has prescribed Phen to that has been a success. He said that most of the people he prescribes it to only wants to lose 10 pounds and they think it's just about taking the pill, not a lifestyle change. I then told him that if I am to the point of asking for help that I am serious about it.
    I also asked him if I needed to come back in a month or what (as I would have been on it for 3 months) and he said that if I don't hit my goal weight by next month to come back. If I do hit my goal then I could just come back when/if I felt like I needed extra help (like thanksgiving/Christmas). So that is great news. He's happy and I'm happy with my progress. I want it to go faster, but I want it off for good.

    *this is not a weight loss clinic just a regular doctor's office. I guess I shouldn't be suprised by the nurse's comments, but it did make me feel really odd.
