165 pounds

"I was overweight my entire life. Hit the 200lb mark in high school, and by college shot up to over 300lbs. I was always a fun, outgoing individual - but I was very self-conscious. I let my weight hold me back from so many things - I knew I had a lot of potential and desire - but let my weight get in the way. I loved food, I loved to eat, go out to eat, just over ate in general.

When I would get down on myself I tried starving myself, but then would binge eat which made everything worse. I took numerous over the counter, celebrity endorsed diet pills, nothing worked. I then heard of phentermine, and gave it a try. I decided if I was going to finally make a change I would do it right this time - so I ate healthy, began a 30minute a day 5 days a week gym routine and the weight started to fly off. I stopped taking the pills for a while.... The weight loss slowed down a lot... I got back on the pills and I started losing quickly again. I started at 303lbs and now weight 165lbs - and I've never been happier!"

A new lifestyle

What is the deciding factor that made you decide to change your lifestyle?
Michel
I decided to change my lifestyle my senior year in college. I was tired of my weight hindering me from doing things I desired to do. It kept me from certain social functions, going on trips, pursuing my ambitions to be in music/theatre. I was letting my weight hold me back - and one day I realized, I have to make a change, I cannot let extra pounds hold me back any longer.

What was the most difficult adjustment to your new lifestyle?
Michel
The most difficult adjustment was watching what I ate in social settings. It's hard going for dinner with friends and going to parties/events and not snacking or picking on everything, and making healthy choices when those around you aren't.

What is the most rewarding part of your new lifestyle?
Michel
How people I haven't seen in awhile don't even recognize me. Not a day goes by where at least one person says "oh my gosh - you look so good. Also - the first time I went to go buy a suit since my weight loss, then woman helping me said "someone as thin as you needs a slim cut".... First time in my life I was called thin - I loved it.
