"I started at 257 glorious lbs on Jan 1, 2009. I had delivered my 2nd child on July 30, 2008 and had only managed to lose 10lbs since then. I really knew that I needed to do something when I went to buy jeans and I was a size 26 (what?). That was the biggest size they sold in the store so, I knew I had to lose weight. I started by just cutting back on foods. I went from eating about 2500 calories a day to about 1000 a day. I lost 17lbs on my own from New Years until Feb 24, which is when I started phen. From Feb 24th-April 10th I took Phen faithfully,and lost about 38lbs, and then hit a plateau. I then quit taking Phen. I have been losing weight on my own since then but at a much slower rate. I incorporate atleast an hour of exercise Mon-Fri and eat about 800-1000 calories a day and drink nothing but water. I would like to lose about 30 more lbs by the end of the year, and I plan on keeping it off for the rest of my life. This has by far, been the hardest thing I have ever done, but it is also the most rewarding thing I have ever done. Keep reading because in about 6 months you will see me again and I will be at my goal weight with the biggest smile you have ever seen."


A new lifestyle
What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
My biggest factor that made me realize that I HAD to lose weight was when I went to get a new pair of jeans and I had to buy a whopping 26. Plus I have 2 small girls with whom I couldn't even play with because I would get so out of breath.
What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
My most difficult adjustment has been portion control. If I was hungry after my first plate, then I'd go fix a second or third plate. Not anymore though as I measure everything. I invested in a home scale to weigh my food with and I take it everywhere I go. Plus if I know that I am going out to eat, then I will look on their menu online and find some foods that are healthier for me to eat, so I am not lost when we get there.
What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
My most rewarding part is the fact that I know I am getting my body in shape and doing things that will help me live a longer, healthier life with my husband and daughters. I also feel terrific when someone compliments me on my weight loss so far. My husband can't keep his hands off me now!
Do you have any words of advice for the community?
Stay focused! Even if you fall off the wagon occasionally, it is most important that you realize your mistake and correct it as soon as possible. In most circumstances, the weight didn't come on by itself and it's not going to go away by itself. You need to make changes that you can maintain for the rest of your life.
