Two pregnancies, hypothyroidism, and a three month infection from surgery caused Delfina, aged 26, to have bad eating habits and an uncontrollable hunger. With Phentermine, knowledge, and exercise, Delfina has regained control of her eating habits and successfully reached her goal weight.

"Prior to having children, I never had a weight problem. I was always the one that could eat anything without facing any consequences. Then, with my first child, I developed hypothyroidism and gained 53 pounds. It took me a year and a half to get up enough motivation to stick with anything for more than a few days at a time. My aunt introduced me to Weight Watchers; within 4 months I was down to 140 and quite content...until I got pregnant 4 months later!! I did everything right during this pregnancy - ate well, exercised and monitored my thyroid levels. So, I gained only 32 pounds. Again it took me a year and a half to work up the motivation...and even then it never was enough to get me under 150 pounds.

In November 2001, I had medical problems and required surgery. Due to an infection in the wound, the surgery turned into a 3 month ordeal. I weighed 167 pounds when the wound FINALLY healed. I tried and tried to kick the bad habits I had developed while I was ill. If I wanted it...I ate it. I was hungry all the time. I'd eat dinner and 20 minutes later be ready for another meal. And then again 20 minutes after that. NOTHING I did seemed to help me rid myself of the urge to eat. In January 2002, I went literally crying to my doctor about my problem. The desire to lose weight was there, the motivation was there, and the know how. I just couldn't seem to control my urge to eat. He suggested Phentermine.

Having never tried a diet drug before, I was skeptical. But, I hoped this was my miracle drug. I began Weight Watchers again and within 5 months met my goal. I met that goal with the help of Phentermine. It gave me the boost I needed to kick the cravings. I ate when I felt my stomach growl rather than whenever I wanted. I began exercising, just a little. At first 10 minute walks everyday and a little bit of free weights. As my physical fitness improved, I got bored with walking and began trying different exercise routines: Taebo, kickboxing, aerobics. All of those were okay, but I didn't enjoy any of them. I'm not all that coordinated and found myself more frustrated than anything. Thanks to some inspiring runners at this site I thought I'd give running a try. I ran my first 5K August 31st. It was not easy and I did not run the whole thing, but I finished.

I'm very pleased with how far I've come and I owe it all to so many people who motivated and inspired me....who cheered me on. 95% of those folks are people I met here at

Would I have met my goal without Maybe, maybe not. I don't have the answer to that question. I know, though, that it would have been much more difficult and not nearly as fun!!"


A new lifestyle
What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
I reached a point where I'd get depressed about my size. The result was I'd eat more to comfort myself. It was a vicious cycle and as the scale inched up, I realized I had to put a stop to this.
What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
Probably the exercise - finding time with 2 young children, a husband and a full-time job wasn't easy. I had to do it in baby steps and I had to make the committment and stick to it.
What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
The feeling of success. Knowing that I set my mind to doing something and then did it. That has built in me a confidence I hadn't experienced before.
Do you have any words of advice for the community?
