Statistics show if we Americans do not step up away from the plate, and get our weight under control by the time 2030 gets here almost half of Americans will be obese. Many people including myself make all sorts of excuses on why I cannot lose weight. However, the bottom line is ourselves. Many people will blame it on medical conditions, and some maybe right. However, there still is really no excuse.
My all time high weight was 315, when I hit that weight my doctor told me if I didn’t lose weight, I would die young. I cannot die, my daughter needs me. So I asked for help, she wanted to put me on Phentermine.
I have seen how this medication works first hand, however, all medications have side effects, and with my anxiety this pill was not a choice for me. If you feel this medication might work for you then talk to your doctor… From my personal experience with taking pills to help with weight loss, I have found if you don’t change your lifestyle when you get to your goal weight you will gain that weight back, plus more.
If you want to use tools to help guide you go for it, but remember that weight wasn’t put on your body overnight, so it won’t come off over night either.
I am currently down 40 pounds and going strong, I have a lot more to lose before I hit my goal weight, but I know with time I will make it, and when I do I will look fabulous!
