Starting tomorrow!!
Just wanted to introduce myself here since I know I will need LOTS of support as I start this journey and there seem to be some great resources on this forum! I had my first appointment today and am starting the program tomorrow. I have about 40 lbs I would like to lose to get back to my pre-baby body -- gained 70+ lbs when I was pregnant and on bedrest and while I did lose some of the weight, I have stalled out with trying to lose the weight on my own.

My major weaknesses are starchy sweets and ice cream, so it's going to be a big adjustment for me, but I know I need to do it for my health and for my kids. Plus I am just plain tired of people thinking I am still several months pregnant, 2+ years after the last baby.

Anyhoo, thanks for reading and look forward to getting to "know" you better. :)

Good luck you can do it. This is my second week. The first week I started the first 2 days was the hardest for me, but it does gets better.

Thanks! Today is day 2 -- I was a little lightheaded when I woke up this morning but it passed after I took the phentermine and ate breakfast. I almost didn't get the phentermine (I really don't like taking prescription meds) but am glad I did now; I think it's making it a lot easier to eat proper "portions" at meals and not want to snack inbetween.

Just had my weigh-in after week 2 and I am down 8.5 lbs total!! I am in total shock. I was down 4.5 after the first week and went down another 4 this week. I can feel my jeans getting looser already! :jumpjoy: I know it probably won't keep up at this rate, but it is giving me some serious motivation to stick with the program.

Woohoo! Way to go! It gets easier, I promise!
