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!

I'm the same exact way. I'm in my 20s and I'm 150 lbs. right now and I lost 25 pounds a year ago due to stress and then I gained it back and I know what it feels like to look and feel that thin and I want it back so bad. I just want to look amazing again, not just average.

Hi Ya, our starting weights and goals are similar, so I really wanted to say hi. I saw your post about voting and eating more veggies and fruit today, and I just wanted to say a BIG "way to go!" You're doing really great, and I am sure you will reach your goal. Cheers, Danni
