Yesterday was a ROUGH day. I had decided to try Fastin while I am on this big 6 week push of dropping weight. I am working with my nutritionist and physical therapist on a big reduction of calories and huge increase in activity. I am doing well with it, but I was really hungry at night. I am in the barriatric program at Kaiser and so I was able to try the drug Fastin if I wanted so I decided to try it. The down fall is that I have a anxiety disorder and am on Paxil . You can't take the 2 together, so I tappered off the Paxil started the fastin and the Fastin does curb the evening hunger and gave me a lot of energy, but without the Paxil I also having heart palpitations and anxiety and yesterday was just too much. It whipped me. So I am giving up the Fastin and going back to my Paxil. I am just disappointed that I couldn't control the anxiety better but on a good note. I still tracked everything and stayed kept withing my goals for not only food but excercise. I am proud that despite being on the edge of lossing my mind I didn't stress eat. I will just keep plugging away.
