Weight Loss Update – Month 3

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.

Weight Loss Journey ~ Week Two

As promised, here is my two week update!

As you all know, two weeks ago I started my weight loss journey with a little help to kick start my metabolism with a prescription form of Phentermine. The Dr told me that the average weight loss in a year with doing nothing else by taking the pill was 24 lbs.  I figured, I’m fine with that. Even with that loss, I’ll still be down to a weight I hadn’t seen in about three plus years.
