Yeah, I just couldn't ignore my personal red flags anymore, money aside. Anything else I had ever been told, especially at this weight was much higher numbers. She's got a degree in this stuff and success stories, but it's just not for me. Live and learn, right?

Thanks for the blog comment, little man is getting huge. Sometimes he seems so small, other times, I can't believe how much he's grown and changed. :)

How neat to have someone in the same place! It's good to hear that our doctors, etc. are saying the same things. It makes this feel a little less extreme. I know she'll give me my fruit and whole grains back eventually, but it's so weird today not having them. The one exception is Saturday morning, I get to have some oatmeal and half a banana (and egg!) before I put my five miles in for training. It's a good thing I love eggs already!

I have noticed as the day goes on that I am less interested in food. I'm only on half a dose a day right now, so I haven't had any nausea, but another friend said the same thing you did about that her first couple of days on it. I had the thought earlier today that it's probably a good thing that I don't live alone, because I think I would end up forgetting to eat for a day or two on this stuff! I've had a little heartburn, but I'm not sure if it's the Phentermine or if it was having salsa, canadian bacon and coffee (with eggs and spinach!) at 8am!

You're right; it will be neat to see how our experiences compare- and that we can do it!

Thanks! It seems that writing down my food really helped me spot this. I still track on here, especialy since I have so much already saved and it will do the math for me. In my paper journal I've been writing down each meal's calories, carbs, fat and protein. Breaking it up and writing it down like that reinforced the disparity more so than just plugging everything into a computer. Isn't it interesting what works and doesn't for all of us. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
