4/27/14 - In 2009 I lost 73 pounds with the help of the prescribed medication Phentercot (phentermine). I crashed emotionally terribly after coming off the medication and gained back all the weight plus almost 35 more. After that bad experience I didn't want to try again and stopped caring. Now I am back to losing weight and being able to move and feel better.

One can start over with one's weight loss journey as often as needed for one's good health!

For example, as per blood test results or blood pressure level or even higher self-esteem or happiness levels.

I saw one of your posts in 240ville. I too gained weight during the holiday season. Back on track since 1/3. I'm down to 246 lbs. I hope to be out of 24ville by the beginning of Feb. Linda
