Hi Lynn. I started on May 15th weighing in at 263. I hope I'm startled at my first weigh in. I'm not big scales so I don't plan on weighing until I've reached one week. I'm also a member of CURVES and haven't worked out this week at all, whereas I usually work out at least 4 times a week. I'm look forward to a shock and awe moment emoticon

Sounds like things are going great for you so keep it up!

Hi! My name is Betty and today is my first day with phentermine. I live in the midwest which means the weather is starting to get nicer out and I will begin some outside exercise as well. I tend to be a pretty lazy person when it comes to exercise routine, but I love to do the less 'structured' things like dancing and swimming. I have never before in my life had to worry about my weight..then I hit 40! I gained a total of 70 pounds over the last two years. The last 7 pounds was put on since I quit smoking 14 weeks ago (yay me!). I finally convinced my Dr. to rx me with this and I am very excited to "get to work" on getting me back to fabulous! :)

Hi likablynn! Great start.. I'm so excited for you! It's totally normal.. because you're just not burning fat.. it's also water weight and toxins that are being flushed from your body. emoticon

Hi everyone!
I'm new here...I found this board through a google search, enjoyed reading all the positive posts. Just picked up phentermine 37.5 from my doctor today. Tomorrow is the big start day, hopefully no side affects. I look forward to following everyone's progress!

Hi my name is Heather. I have just started Phentermine 30 mg before breakfast for the first time ever just a week ago. I pretty happy today since I discovered this morning I already lost exactly 10 pounds during this week and surprised that I lost that much since I just got home this morning from spending a week out of state at my in-laws house where I really didn't get a chance to exercise other than walking around their house with my kids, niece and nephew when I wasn't resting my knee (needing surgery for it) required by my doctor along with eating pretty much nothing but fast food the whole week... well when I manage to force myself to since since my appetite pretty much gone away almost completely and just wanting liquids. Hoping to loose even more weight now that I'm back at home and able to eat a lot healthier and go on more walks.

Welcome Sparkly-Mom! Great job! As women, our weight will fluctuate whether we take phentermine or not. 1lb is probably water weight. Watch your sodium (salt) intake. Best of luck. emoticon

Hello everyone ! My name is Sara and I'm starting week 4 on phen/topamax combo pill. I was doing it along with atkins based diet mainly protein. I lost 16 pounds so far but the last week 4 days I had no gain on the 5th I gained 1 pound, 6th day no gain was the same before. I have been doing aveything the same so I'm kinda stumped. I haven't been exercising yet since my body was getting used to the drug. I'm finally feeling normal again so was gonna try getting 30 min of exercise in each day this week and focus on calorie and water intake. I just ate when I felt hungry before and mainly just protein and veggies and water. But I'm not sure if it was enough. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
Look forward to hearing everyones progress!

Good morning everyone, My name is Toyia.
I began taking phen 37.5 three days ago. I do not feel hungry, it is hard to even make myself eat (work at a restaurant). I also notice myself having mood swings...Is this normal and how long will it last.

Welcome! I take the 37.5 tab I also only take half a day usually @ 5am. It lasts me all day. If I'm feeling extra sluggish, I take the other half @ 930 am. Good luck! U can do this!

Hello I'm Jess, I was on phetermine last year for a few months but then had to stop because I couldn't get to my appointments because the time the group was helddidnt allow me to get back to town to pick up my son. Today I started started again (thankfully!) because they started a group on Friday mornings. I am part of kaiser HMO so to be on te meds you must participate on monthly weighing and group meetings or pay way more of individual appointments. Annyyywayyy.... Here I am! I stopped taking it in oct and have since gained back 10 pounds. I am sooo ready to start again. This time around its a different doctor and so she has given me a different dosage. I was on 30 mg. to be taken first thing in the morning an it was a slow release capsule. This time she has started me off on half of a tablet (37.5 mg) two hours after breakfast. With the option to take the other half if needed two hours after lunch. The meeting today was really good and focused on stress eating an how to eleviate stress in our lives. I have struggled with weight my whole life from puberty on, and I do know a lot about diet exercise and relaxation because my mom is a yoga instructor, so it wasa good feeling to be able to participate and even cheer on others today. I also made a new friend who I hope I can encourage! We are looking forward to seeing each other next moth to compare notes and I also told the group about spark! Yay! Well as you can see I type and talk a lot haha! I am happy to have found this group on spark! Have been issuing spark on and off for two years.

Amy, thanks! I will always send info your way..:) Something that really helps me is eating all protein for breakfast. For example, this morning I had a hard boiled egg and a half cup of cottage cheese. And when I hit a plateau, I switch up my exercise routine. Sometimes I'm not even hungry for lunch because of the phentermine, so I snack on fruit or have a fiber one bar. I get hungry around 3-4pm.. so I will grab an apple or yogurt to hold me until dinner. For dinner, its low carb. Lean meats, veggies and sometimes a sweet potato (so delicious and I don't feel guilty lol). I have a cheat day once a week.. either on Sat or Sun. My actual goal is to weigh 150lbs but I'm aiming for 170 first. Take care.. chat with ya soon!

Hi, just got my rx for Phentermine today.... I was a size 8 this time last year, about 160 lbs (5 ft, 8 in) and am now squeezing into a size 14, at 200 lbs. Beyond depressed about it. Turned 40 last year and am sure that has something to do with all of this. I just need a jump start to weight loss. I know I need to continue exercising, and even step it up a bit, as well as eat right. Hoping for some very positive results!

Amy =)

I can't remember my 5-htp dosage, I believe I just followed the info on the bottle & took it about 1hr before bed. I encourage everyone to look up Dr Michael Anchors /phenpro.com He snail mailed me alot of info on why all these combos of supplements & phen work. I used to do the topamax for over a year, to me that was a waste of money. I also do the h20 w lemon juice. As far as being edgy, it sucks forsure. I used to smoke alot of pot to counteract that but now Im just dealing with it. Ill be going to cvs for some 5-htp today lol. feel free to ask me anything.

Hello 815JESSICA,
Congrats on your weight loss! :) I can definitely relate to weight gain after having a baby.. I had my first child Feb last yr and I have struggled so much to get the weight off. I like the appetite suppressant that phentermine gives me but I'm edgy.. My dr recommended the 5 htp but I can't seem to find it anywhere! Ever since Dr. Oz did a show about how great the 5-htp is, it's always off the shelves lol. I was wondering, how much did the 5-htp help you as far as being edgy and helping with sleep? Do you reccomend a certain dosage to take?
Thanks!

So I'm Jess, 35 had a baby in April. Before that I had been to every Dr imaginable trying to find out why couldn't get preggers. Turns out I was too fat. Started phen late May & by July I had lost 30lbs & was lovin it! Decided on not trying to have a baby anymore cuz I loved how I was looking, & wouldn't u know it guess who was pregnant. Anyway I got up to 265 the day I delivered. Lost a little, started smoking after I had Sammi & then decided to stop again last October. Then ill be damned if I didn't gain more weight. So January this yr I started back to fat Dr & have lost almost 20lbs. I have not exercised at all really, I know shame on me. Last time on phen I atleast did my wii fit daily. Now w a baby hahaha no time. I work full time, come home feed & bathe my kiddo then she goes to bed. However she has been back to night waking a crapload of times at night. Soooo when she goes to bed, mom tries to also. I've been lazy, I need motivation to not be. I know the weightloss would be better if I did. I need some 5 htp again, that worked wonders on helping me not be such a bitch on phen. That's my story. I'm looking to get to onederland. Care to join me?

Hello everyone I'm Meka, a newbie to the group and phentermine. I went to a weight loss center and on my first visit they did a body analysis, blood work, ekg and I sat and spoke with the doctor for about 30 minutes. I came back two weeks later to weigh-in and receive my prescription. I started phentermine 37.5 on February 1, 2013 and weighed 202lbs. I changed my eating habits and workout( jazzercise four days a week and jog three days a week). I weighed myself again on February 8th and I am still 202lbs. I am 5'10 and looking to get down to 170lbs. I look forward to chatting with you all and working together on our journey :-)

Hello all!
I started phentermine 37.5 a week ago and have lost 5 lbs :) Yay! I want to lose 45 more lbs. The only thing I don't like about the phentermine is that some days I feel irritated easily. I'm going to get some 5-htp supplement from the store to help with my depression and weight loss journey. I'm feeling very motivated, which feels amazing after having a baby last year and having trouble losing the weight! Good luck to everyone on their weight loss journey! ;)

Hello all!
I started phentermine 37.5 a week ago and have lost 5 lbs :) Yay! I want to lose 45 more lbs. The only thing I don't like about the phentermine is that some days I feel irritated easily. I'm going to get some 5-htp supplement from the store to help with my depression and weight loss journey. I'm feeling very motivated, which feels amazing after having a baby last year and having trouble losing the weight! Good luck to everyone on their weight loss journey! ;)

Welcome Beth! I'm so glad you found a weight loss clinic you feel good about. I recently started taking the 37.5 after taking 30 since late September. I have had good results so far. I have broken up my goals as well. I hope to get to 170 soon an then I will aim for 150. I'm so glad you joined our team. If you go to my sparkpage you will see I'm also in a PCOS team. They seem to be very friendly and have great information. Best of luck and please share on here as often as you want. It's the best way for us to support and motivate each other! emoticon

Hello all! I'm Beth in Memphis! I just started Phentermine 37.5 mg tabs on Sunday, after a visit with a weight loss clinic and nurse practioner on Saturday. They were really sweet and professional. Was weighed and measured, body analysis done, had blood drawn for labs and an EKG, met with the NP, got a B12 injection and was out of there in 40 minutes! Awesome!

Anyway, I also started the South Beach Diet per the NP's recommendation, and am drinking SO much water due to dry mouth. Tuesday I drank 160 ounces! :)

I am breaking my goal up into more manageable parts so I don't get discouraged. My first goal is to get to 325. That will be the lowest I've been in over 6 years! And I'm READY! My mom who lives in TX is starting South Beach with me and we have the same goal.. only her's is total. haha. :) Oh well! Gotta start somewhere!

My motivation for changing my lifestyle and taking Phentermine is wanting a baby! My husband and I have been married almost 5 years and I have been diagnosed with PCOS, so we already have an uphill climb.. Plus the weight and it's almost unbearable! BUT GOD is bigger than a diagnosis, and He is bigger than my habits. I am making a change for the rest of my life so that I can be the best mom to any kids we have! :)

Just wanted to introduce myself. My starting weight before Phentermine was 373.6 and I have lost 7.4 pounds since Sunday. My "start weight" is my highest ever, which was just two weeks ago.

Hi! I started taking phentermine 6 days ago. My doctor suggested taking 1/2 a pill each day until I am feeling hungry in the evenings and then up the dose to a whole pill each morning. So far the 1/2 pill is enough. Other than the 2nd night, I'm sleeping pretty well. I'm eating between 1000 and 1050 calories each day. The pills are working great and staying on my calorie budget hasn't been a problem. I have 3 kids and 2 jobs so I haven't really had time to exercise. Is anybody having success with this not exercising, or is that something I'm just going to have to make time to do?

Hello everyone. Started Phentermine 37.5 mg daily and the B12 complex shots once weekly on Monday, December 17. I weighed in this morning (Sunday December 23rd) and have lost 5 pounds. I am really excited to see how much weight I can drop by the time I go back to weigh in on January 14. The Phentermine seems to really help curb my appetite and I have somewhat more energy.

Hi All, just started Phentermine 37.5 mg day before Thanksgiving. I took a full pill the first day and felt really sick and speedy and couldn't sleep... so yesterday (being Thanksgiving) I took 1/2 pill twice. I waited until after Thanksgiving dinner to take it though because the first day food seemed disgusting so I feared I wouldn't be able to touch the holiday meal. Fortunately, after that bad first day, I feel much more "normal" and am able to eat just not as famished. My doctor had been suggesting trying this and I resisted because I was afraid of it and still am but I finally got to the point that I felt ready to give up. As he said, the risks are better than the risk of heart attack. I've been on SP for awhile and tried other things but the pounds keep packing on. I prayed about it and decided to give this a shot.

Hey All! I am Tori. I started on Phentermine last Wednesday I weighed in on the Drs scale around 327... When I started trying to lose weight i was at 342 in February. It has been awful! I weigh in tomorrow. Since there is no Sparkpeople app for windows phone I track what I eat on MyFitnessPal. I have constantly eating 1200 calories or less a day. I take 37.5 mg a day like most everyone else. I can't believe i started on Halloween and didn't even give it a second thought. I was ready to just give up on weightloss. I am happy to be on something that will hopefully work! I will update after i weigh in!

Hi everyone. So glad to find a group just for medical weight loss/phentermine participants. Get a lot of flak for it outside of here I've noticed.

I'm a 21 year old new grad RN from NC. My SW was 260 as of 10/31/2012. I want to lose 100 pounds to get down to 160. My SW is the highest weight I've been...I'll be ecstatic to see 199 again. Haven't seen the hundreds since middle school. ):

My primary care doctor has started me on Phentermine 37.5 mg/daily. I'm two days in, and am only taking half a tab for a few days per his recommendation. According to him, it helps ease your body in to the stimulant effects so it's not quite as big of a shock to your body once you start taking the full dose. I'll start taking the full dose after another day or so. He wants me on a low calorie diet, around 1,000 a day. So far no side effects except having trouble to fall and stay asleep...but I have so much energy that doesn't bother me as much.

I looked up Adipex (the brand name for phentermine) and they have this nifty little starter guide. Diets are planned out in 1,000, 1,200, and so forth calories. Lists are broken down into foods and proportions. Best of all, it's a free PDF file! :D

Looking forward to losing weight and developing healthy eating habits while on this medicine!! Good luck to everyone else!!

It definitely does work! Glad to have a group of people to talk with about their experience and past/curret success!

Hi everyone! I'm Brittany and I'm from Ohio! I started taking phentermine on October 15- tomorrow will be one week. I have always struggled with my weight, it goes up and down but it's been steadily increasing for a while now and it can't keep going like that. I have never been this heavy in my life, I don't feel comfortable in my own skin. Last Tuesday at the doctor their scale said I weigh 231 pounds (I'm 5'4). I felt like I was going to just die right then and there. I did weigh myself the following morning when I started the pills and at home it says I weigh 223 but regardless, I'm not pleased with either number! My short term goal is to get to 200 and long term is 160. So far I have lost 8.4 pounds, I'm really excited. :) Only side effects I've been having have been cotton mouth, occasional headaches, some insomnia and some light headedness (that was the first few days). There are only 3 people that know I'm doing this- my friend who is also on phen, another friend and my husband. I didn't want to tell anybody else because I need to lose weight, a lot of weight, and this is how I'm choosing to do it. I'm happy I found this team so I can have more people to talk to for support! Good luck to you all!! :)

Hello to everyone!
I have been a member of SparkPeople for a while now, and I absolutely love it! I have been posting on the team forum for a week now, but haven't posted anything here on the "Introduce Yourself" forum, so I thought I had better do that! :) I started taking Phentermine on 10-9-2012, and so far I have already lost 9 pounds. I am assuming that that was water weight, as my weight loss is starting to slow down. I am taking a 37.5 my capsule first thing in the morning, before breakfast, and it works for me all day! At first I was afraid that that little bitty capsule would surely wear off by noon, but I was wrong! :) I have not experienced any terrible negative side effects, however I have had a dry mouth and sometimes find it hard to fall asleep. I don't consider those as bad side effects. The dry mouth actually assures that I get my water in for the day! I have to be honest and say that I am kinda bummed that I haven't experienced the energy that others get from taking Phen. It works differently on everyone, I guess! :)
I really do look forward to "meeting" you fellow Phentermine users! I think this is a great place for us to communicate with one another about our journey, achievements, goals, ups & downs, etc. Please feel free to visit my page and add me to your friends list! Good luck everyone! We CAN reach our goals!! emoticon emoticon
