Phen/Pro first week results

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Today is the seventh day of the phentermine/prozac cocktail. As of today I am down 5.1 lbs. It has tapered off, the first day I lost exactly 3 lbs. I knew even then that it had to be water weight. After that I have lost .50-.75 lbs a day and its been pretty consistant. some days I've even had trouble reaching the 1200 calories that I know I need to get. The night time munches are gone which was one of my biggest problems. I am starting to actually feel hunger here and there but I don't react the same to it and freak out and stuff things into my mouth. I was concerned about what would happen when I stopped taking the medicine? Do I balloon back up? I'm not worrying about that as much now that I know exactly what REAL hunger feels like. You would think a person would know such a basic thing but I guess not. So far so good. I'm content with the results. I've decided that if I can lose 2 lbs a week I WILL be happy. I am not going to expect the same results as this week since I know quite a bit of it was water weight.

Life is good

    It may seem slow, but the STEADY part is what is important. It sounds like you have much better control of your lifestyle.

Phen/Pro

so the doctor has put my on a combo of phentremine and prozac. I've know a few people that are trying this combo and they are losing weight big time so I thought I would give it a try. I know I have the diet thing down (If I wasn't so hungry all the time it might actually work!), I know how to log my food and how to eat properly. I know how to exercise. However for the last 15 years or so this simply has not worked. I eat too much because I'm hungry all the time (regardless if it's real hunger or not). So for the first time ever I am going to give in and decide that it's a tad out of my hands and I need some help. For the first time ever I'm trying diet pills that aren't over the counter. Today was my first day and I must admit that I am SOOOO not hungry. Not even emotionally. No desire to munch and usually this is the time that hits. Ate a sensible lunch of salad and chicken and couldn't finish it. This is a first! Wish me luck- I'm sure I'll be on more as I track my progress. :)

time to catch up

Friday, March 26, 2010

so I was so all over the place on my last posting that I didn't write about all the craziness lately.

First, I got laid off. Essentially my last day of employment would have been April 2nd. I had a lot of use it or lose it vacation and sick so I used it. I was officially "on vacation" starting the 15th of March. I have worked for my company for 5 yrs and love my job but contracted work is like that and you know the risks. I could have stayed within the company but I would have been doing stuff that I have no interest in doing. I got extremely lucky- before I had a chance to be unemployeed I found another job and started on the 15 of March. LOL- doing basically the same work, and for a great company and actually in the same location since I'm contracted to work for the same company I was already working for. It's like a weird love triangle unless you understand how this stuff works.
My good friend also got liad of as well however and this has left me with a huge void. She has left the state to be with her grandbabies and kids and this leaves me without my "partner in crime". Very tramatic given everything else that has happened this month. Either way I figured that this would be a good chance for me to get my butt to the gym and start working out. And we have a habit of eating badly together so well maybe if I try to put a good spin on it everything will be ok? Not that it's her fault I eat crappy however taking away my buddy kind of does change things a bit.
So to compensate for my very dear friend departing I've tried to focus hard core on my eating and exercise. As of today I've managed to get 30 minute of cardio in M-Th and I will work out tomorrow after working at the gym. I've also been able to get my beloved sauna in too those days. Except for yesterday, I stoke to my 8 week diet plan that I developed and I'm not going to sweat yesterday since I was able to bounce back today.
Life is indeed good and if it wasn't I'd just pretend it was anyway- :)

for me- I'm pretty excited. Well I am and I'm not. I'm at the highest weight in 3 years. That is causing me major self esteem issues. However on the flip side of that it's also woke me up. SO I'm excited that I've woken up. I'm excited that for 3 days I've eaten how I was supposed to and that I've worked out. I'm excited that I'm all about moderation now. I'm excited that I went to Cheeburger Cheeburger for lunch today and simple got a grilled chicken salad! I have 8 weeks of breakfast, lunch and snacks planned out which is also very exciting. Usually I would have given up by day 3 and yet, here I am just plugging along.

Maybe I'm excited because of all the caffiene I've consumed today 8D

Once again- Life is good!
