    I am new to this and I had always believed what you said about better to eat not so good things in the morning instead of at night. I also have been going to weight watchers and at one of my recent meetings, the leader said that it didn't matter when you eat your points as long as you get them all in. I tend to agree with you. When I am in the mood for fast food, I will usually wait until morning and get in on my way to work so that I can feel satisfied that I got to have some. I feel there is little guilt because I have the whole day to work it off. :-)

    Amanda - thanks.

    I halved mine today as well ... at a hamburger patty about noon, so I most def would want to wait till 2 to hope my stomach is empty ...
    So - we'll see how this works.

    Good luck today.

    Raquel, I think I will take it at about 3. I have water aerobics at 6, so I will eat something light before that and probably some fruit when I get done. I take a blood pressure pill before bed that makes me SUPER sleepy, so I am hoping it will cancel out any insomnia from the Phen.

    Mindalynn: My therapist and new doc said the average yearly weight gain on lexapro is 10-20lbs. Since you are on Phen, it might not happen to you. I noticed an increased appetite. I did lose some of the weight while on it with diet and lots of exercise (5 days a week, hour a day!), but it was slow going and eventually I lost my momentum because of being so sluggish. I was taking 10mg at bedtime and when I complained about the sluggishness to my doc, he upped it to 20 and said I was "depressed". I asked him to take some blood or something to make sure and he wouldn't, so needless to say, I fired him and found a new doc and started therapy too. It made a world of difference and he DID the bloodwork which is when I found out about my blood pressure and cholesterol being through the roof!

    Manda - You are doing great! I started not taking Phen on the weekend and it seems to work a lot better when I start again on Monday. I am on Lexapro and I did not know it causes weight gain - or is it because you are so tired and not exercising? I am taking it for "Situational Anxiety " so I may try to ween off on it if it is going to impair my weight loss...

    I am feeling better! I took my Wellbutrin and got a good nights sleep! I am gonna do half phen this morning and half tonight. I wanna try that for awhile because the night temptations are killing me! I have water aerobics tonight too so I am really looking forward to that. It always makes me feel better.

    I weighed this morning and didn't gain (yet!) so that is a plus as well!

    Thank you for checking on me! How are you these days??

    I take Wellbutrin for depression/anxiety and obsessivness. Not like OCD, but more like if anything is wrong, I will obsess about it!

    I went through a really tough period with it the first couple of weeks and am noticing it again now from being off so long then going back on, but it did level out. At first it made me realllllyyyyyy moody. Like weepy, fine, then angry all in one turn. It was ridiculous. I didn't wanna go back on Lexapro, so I stuck with it. I took lexapro for over a year and gained about 20 lbs and just couldn't stay awake! I like the Wellbutrin now though. I am supposed to take it twice a day, but once works for me, so that's what I'm doing.
    So how are YOU today? Better I hope.

    Can I ask, are you taking the Welbutrin for weight loss (weight addiction), or for other purposes? I'm just curious because I used to be on it, but only for a couple of weeks because I couldn't fight through the weird feelings it gave me.

    Oh, and this may cheer you up- Yesterday I was looking at different posts on this forum and as I was scrolling, my husband came up behind me and looked at your pic and said, "Who is that? She's really cute." Haha, I think he's disappointed that you're not a friend that lives close to us.


    Cheer up Charlie!

    Unhappy Blah! Been a bad day.

    I just feel all PPpppffffffftttttt.

    I ran out of Wellbutrin last Thursday and kept forgetting to get it until yesterday, so I know that's most of it. Then this morning, I forgot to take my Phen. Didn't remember till after lunch, so let's not discuss the carbs my body has ingested today ok? lol

    I know, I know, tomorrow is another day! I will get over it. I just feel Blah.
