So it has been a few days since I have posted a blog. And to be honest, I am doing really well with my eating and exercising both! And now I have to confess something else.. and I know most people are not going to approve of it :( I went to the Dr on Friday and he prescribed me diet pills. I started taking them on Saturday. I only take one a day... So far I am not really sure if I feel any different or not. I still do not feel like I have more energy like he said I would. I do know that I have lost weight. But I think to me, having the diet pill is what REALLY made me be accountable and start REALLY working hard at both my eating and exercising. I have been eating under my calorie range, which I also know is not good for me. But I have been very consistent with my exercising. I have been walking around where I work, and yesterday I even jogged some of it. I felt like I could die at anytime lol. BUT I didn't. I think to me, the diet pill is like a little jump start for me. My Dr is awesome. He didn't just prescribe them and say here you go. He told me that they WOULD not work if I didn,t do the diet and exercise, and that I WOULD gain the weight back if all I planned to do was take them and nothing else. He was very supportive and informative. He also told me they were short term. we would do a month on, and then go off of them, and if I was not able to maintain that weight or lose more, he would not prescribe me anymore. So... I hope to continue to see an improvement.. and Hope to not use them for very long.

    You got to do what you got to do. Don't like people judge you. They don't walk in your shoes.
