"I gain a lot of weight after I had my son nearly 9 years ago. To be honest I have never been real thing but I had never been close to being this heavy. I always gave the excuse that I had time to loose the weight, I was still young. I would start something to try but I never could keep up with it. Having a young child and husband, it can be hard to maintain a routine. I really began hating myself and the way I looked but still could not change. My marriage started suffering because of my self image. I began have sever back problems following an accident. When I went to see the Dr. he said that the injuries that I received from the accident were aggravated by my weight, and that was that. I went to my regular Dr. and asked for help. I started taking Phentermine July of last year and used it for 3.5 months and lost 70ibs while on it. With the help of Phentermine, I was able to change my eating habits and how much i eat. I had also started exercising because it gave me the additional energy that i needed to get started."


A new lifestyle
What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
I was 27 years old and was having horrible back problems due to a car accident but were worse because of my weight. Plus my marriage was suffering because i was so disgusted with myself.
What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
Finding the time to exercise and really paying attention to what i was eating. Which can be extremely difficult when you have a child and work and a husband.
What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
Feeling better and better about the way i look and having more energy to do stuff with my son.
Do you have any words of advice for the community?
Phentermine is not a miracle but a aid to help change your lifestyle. It is not a cure all, you must be willing to maintain your changed habits once you stop taking it. It is hard but with support and willpower it is possible.
