I haven’t updated in quite awhile! As I’ve written about before, I reached my highest weight. My feelings were:
- Not happy with myself
- Didn’t like the way I looked
- I’d hide myself behind people in pictures
- My health was suffering
- I was becoming depressed
I started taking Phentermine 15mg on October 23rd. My most recent weigh in on New Years Day I was down 20.2 lbs! I was thrilled! I made it down to my second loss of 10 lbs. On the scale, I went down into my next set of 10’s. In several more pounds, I’ll be down to where I was when I gave birth to my daughter. After that, I still have 40 lbs to go. That will get me to just under the weight I was at when I got pregnant. I will have lost 60 lbs at that point. That is my goal amount to lose. But, what I’d actually like to do is lose another 20 – 25 lbs beyond that. Putting me at 80 – 85 lbs lost. I won’t be where I was in high school or college. I don’t think I’ll ever see that number again! I was 115 lbs! But, it will put me where I was when I was on Weight Watchers and lost 40 lbs. I’m hoping to keep my metabolism going and maintain the weight.
