    I would cut out refined sugar and other carbs in my diet, stick to lean proteins and green veggies. Also watch your sodium intake by staying away from processed foods, even the diet ones. Drink your weight in ounces of water. Whatever your doing for excercise, change it or increase the intensity. Give it a week and I am sure you will see some weight loss.

    That does seem odd. Have you had blood work done to be sure that it is not something else or are you on other meds? Even with only a small amount of weight to lose, 5lbs loss in three months on phen seems unusually slow.

    sorry phen didnt work for you. at 150 and wanting to get down to 130 you're not going to see dramatic numbers as someone who was 250. so in my opinion 5 lbs so far is good... its better than 5 lbs gained

    2/10/08 - 3/08/08** -19 (Month 1 on Phen)
    3/15/08 - 4/05/08** -31 (Month 2 on Phen)
    4/12/08 - 5/03/08** -35 (Month 3 on Phen)
    5/10/08 - 5/31/08** -45 (Month 4 on Phen)
    6/07/08 - 6/28/08** -49 (Month 5 NO Phen)
    7/12/08- 7/26/08 ** -58 (Month 6 on Phen)

    month 5 results
    1st mini goal=215 met
    2nd mini goal=200 met
    3rd mini goal=185 met
    4th mini goal= 170

    well i heard that there is a percentage of people that phen just doens't work for......I didn't believe that to be true but if what you say is accurate then maybe it is....sorry you are having such a hard time on it. what kind of phen were you taking and what milligram?
    I did it!! Reached goal and have been here for quite a while thanks to low carb eating and working out like crazy! Phen didn't work for me, but that isn't to say that there aren't other ways. God bless all of you!

    Hi! Have you tried increasing the intensity of your work-outs? What is your daily calorie goal? I think you need to switch up and try some new things to jumpstart your weightloss again. You can do it!

    Thumbs down No weight loss after 3 months! Getting off it!

    I lost 5 pounds in the first month. I've never missed a dose, exercised, (no weight lifting, just cardio), and counted calories. I haven't lost any more weight. I am frustrated for having spent so much money and not getting any results.
