Taken today 9-2-09
Take at the start of the journey 313 lbs

Today I started Phentermine. I am hoping that it will work. As far as side effects I have a bad taste in my mouth and I got a headache when I didn't eat. It really makes me not eat....I have no desire for food..........AMAZING!!!!

So today I am going to eat 1200 calories.

So far I have had 1 fiber 1 bar 140 calories

Cheese Sandwich on English Muffin 300 calories

I am going to take a body shot later when someone gets home and I will track my weight loss in photos weekly or maybe monthly will be better and hopefully I will find the skinny under my fat.

I realize that this drug is not for everyone and some might not think I should take it but I am going to give it a try. If I don't lose major amounts of weight I won't take it any longer. I mean I know how to do this on WW and I was doing it fine but I need a boost lately my numbers have been stalling. So I hope you all wish me luck and that you enjoy reading about my journey as I try to find the skinny under my fat.

The pictures are face shots from the beginning to a current shot of my face I took today....the difference is amazing. I can't even imagine what I will look like when I reach goal!

Good luck with it! I used it with great success between my first adn second kiddo, but found that I really had to work hard to remember to eat and drink. I would get dizzy and not know why! The ONLY TIME IN MY LIFE I HAVE EVER FORGOTTEN TO EAT.

I always had to have mints or gum, too. Serious breath issues.

And hot flashes.

Good luck with it!

Girl, you are looking FINE!

As for the my opinion, whatever works and as long as you are under a doctor's supervision. So I will wish you lots of good luck!

I took that and it caused permanet heart damage and most likely my two strokes at the age of 25, but good luck with that. Hope you stay safe and well. As for the pics, they look GREAT!
