NO MAGIC PILL....NO MAGIC PILL
Thursday, July 07, 2011
So I talked to a friend of mine the other day on FB and she said she is on Apidex (Adipex) however you spell it and telling me how it has decreased her appetite tremendously and once again there went my mind...daydreaming about a "diet pill" to help me on this journey. Yeah I have tried several diet pills before (but don't worry I didn't take any long enough for one side effect to occur lol)....I even tried phentermine at one point...which seemed to be okay for about a week,,,, then I didn't feel it's "magic" anymore so I quit...but since this is the generic of Apidex once my friend started talking about it...it made me want to get it since after all this was the "name brand stuff"..sooooooooooo I called my doctor's office and got an appointment for next Tuesday to try to get the prescription....I was so excited at work but that wasn't soon enough for me...so i called back to get in with the nurse practitioner instead for tomorrow...well when the nurse asked me what i wanted to come in for I said for weight loss pills...she said our doctors rarely issue pills for that reason.....I said all of them? (I knew the answer)..she said it has to be a special case...I said okay how about for someone that is over 300lbs has been for a while and lap band would be her next choice?....she said okay (hesitantly).....we will get you in tomorrow and see what she says....well I already knew my doc or the nurse practitioner wasn't game for pills for me and here is why.....I am healthy...(as can be at my weight) I don't have any reason that good ole' diet and exercise would not and could not work for me....other than wanting a quick fix and daydreaming about a "magic pill"......my doc wont give me a pill....she knows I can do it on my own....but can I?..neway so I called back and canceled both appointments....I can't really believe how up and down this whole weight loss thing is I think the emotional ride is more frustrating than the actual weight. I really want something to suppress my appetite but than again maybe I just need to grow up and learn how to suffer through some hunger pains (that with time I know will go away) eat less and....exercise.....instead of taking a diet pill that I can't take forever anyway. I have got to lose the microwave mentality...it has got to go... when it comes to this weight loss journey....I know that....losing weight is hard work....and honestly I just need to toughen up and stop being such a wimp......I found a question that really stuck with me....and it is this....WHAT AM I GETTING OUT OF NOT LOSING WEIGHT? I will tell you what...not a DANG THANG!
PS....if you do know of a good appetite suppressant pill though let me know LOL....LOL...HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAH
A! JUST KIDDING!
