“Now I feel so much better about the way I look and have more energy to do stuff with my son!”

I gained a lot of weight after I had my son nearly 9 years ago. To be honest I have never been real thin, but I had never been close to being this heavy.

I always gave the excuse that I had time to lose the weight – I was still young. I would start something to try to lose weight, but I never could keep up with it. Having a young child and husband, it can be hard to maintain a routine.

I really began hating myself and the way I looked but still could not change. My marriage started suffering because of my self-image.

Then I began having severe back problems following an accident. When I went to see the doctor, he said that the injuries that I received from the accident were aggravated by my weight, and that was that.

I went to my primary care doctor and asked for help. I started taking phentermine in July of last year. I used it for 3.5 months and lost 70lbs while on it. With the help of Phentermine, I was able to change my eating habits and how much I eat. I also started exercising because it gave me the additional energy that I needed to get started.

Phentermine is not a miracle pill – it’s an aid to help change your lifestyle. It is not a cure all, you must be willing to maintain your changed habits once you stop taking it. It is hard, but with support and willpower it is possible.
