Me at Halloween '07- I had just realized how much I'd lost again.





Me a couple of years ago, after I lost most of the weight I had wanted to.

Making Myself Smile Again

Since I am now 12 pounds from my goal weight, I figured I should update this. Yes, I was prescribed Adipex, let's get that out of the way first. If you consider that cheating and look down on me for it, too bad. I did the work, I kept up with my doctor, everything I was asked to do I did. I started watching what I ate super carefully, not to keep the calories down, but the nutrients up. I have no desire to make myself sick. I've learned to eat when and only when I am hungry. I make healthy ...
Since I am now 12 pounds from my goal weight, I figured I should update this. Yes, I was prescribed Adipex, let's get that out of the way first. If you consider that cheating and look down on me for it, too bad. I did the work, I kept up with my doctor, everything I was asked to do I did. I started watching what I ate super carefully, not to keep the calories down, but the nutrients up. I have no desire to make myself sick. I've learned to eat when and only when I am hungry. I make healthy choices, but allow myself to be human and have a slice of cake if I really want it. I work out daily. I run, when I've never even wanted to before. I lift light weights for strengthening. Basically I feel awesome for the first time in I have no idea how long.
Adipex is not a miracle pill, I did not lose 20lbs a month. I just kept going. Now I reap the rewards of hard work and dedication to following my doctors orders. I had to lose weight to solve one medical issue, but that same issue made exercise not feasible. Guess what? Both issues are under control finally! So I don't think everyone should go out and get a weight loss drug. It's not going to work for everyone, especially if you aren't willing to work for it. It worked for me because I burned calories any way I could until walking was an option again. Fidgeting works wonders! Cleaning small sections all day long. Anything. So remember: you CAN do this. Even if you start out crawling, you're moving! Good luck!

Stopped by to give you a "hug" as I saw your post that you'd been sick yesterday. Glad you felt better today and could walk four miles. Just think about our "grandmothers of old" who had to keep going no matter how sick they were. What tough women they were!
