My Journey so far on Adipex

Thursday, September 10, 2009

So i went to my doctor for a followup to see how i was doing on my Metformine for my Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome. She had wanted to to loose like 5 lbs or more when I went back. So two weeks before i went in i realized that my pants were fitting TIGHTER and that i should probably try to eat a little better and loose a bit of weight. Well according to the scale at work i lose 4 lbs just by eating better. But when i went into the doctor i was UP two lbs from the last time i was there. So needless to say she was not too happy with me. And i dont blame her. I brought in the tracker of the food I've been eating and she said that my calories were good but i was eating crap. And yes shes right there too. I eat like crap! I may stay in my calories but I'm eating processed food. So she really wanted me to change my diet. She also put me on a half dose of Adipex, an appetite suppressant. I didnt really want to go on it, but she insisted that I atleast try it, so i did.
The first day i took it i felt ok. I noticed that i was not hungry AT ALL the rest of the day. The next day my heart was racing and i didnt want to eat and quite frankly i was freaking out. I've been on this medication for a week now and i have to say i feel GREAT. I've gotten some of my appetite back, but not like how I was BEFORE Adipex. I eat small portions of food and according to the scale at work I'm down seven more lbs! I know this is alot of weight loss in such a short time, and i know that this wont keep up forever, but its nice to see a bit of loss after just gaining weight over the spring and summer. I'm really trying to make sure that I eat the right foods. I'm eating alot of yogurt, fresh spinach, lots of veggies, natural foods. I've noticed I've got more energy. When my alarm goes off in the morning I just get out of bed and go, where usually I'm dragging for a good hour or so.
And my mom and I have started working with my horse again which is really improving my mood. She's just been sitting all summer because i havent felt like training her because my mood has been so negative. Now i cant wait! I'm just very very happy with how everything is going right now. Hopefully I can keep on track this time and really loose this weight!

    This has really helped me. In September I was diagnosed with PCOS and pre-diabetes. I have been taking Metformin since then but have not had any real weight loss and I am not liking some of the side effects. I have been talking to my Dr. about Adipex or something similar. I would like to know more about how this helped in the long run. But its good to know that I am not the only one struggling with this stuff. Thank you.
