My LOOOONG Plateau is OVER!!!

I've been on a LONG plateau since April.  I haven't lost anything.  I have fluctated a few pounds (Mostly water retention) here and there but I have maintained pretty much what I have lost.  I started back on Belviq after taking a long break.  I have had to modify my diet GREATLY due to a health condition.  No more sodas, sugary drinks (not even 1) - only water.  No more red meats - NONE whatsover.  No more yokes, no more foods with a higher fat content.  Basically, all of my food has to be little to no fat, etc. 

I lost 2 pounds this week since starting my new meal plan.  I can officially say, my plateau is OVER!!!!!!    Now hopefully I can lose 10 pounds by the end of September!! 

GOOOO #belviq

I'm still alive

Sorry I have been tardy on posts but I have been so stupid busy at work.  Lots going on there (ALL GOOD STUFF) but I have been working crazy hours.

From past injuries, I have joint problems in my knee and foot.  I had to take a break from working out because I did too much too fast.  I started back up with my personal trainer yesterday and she is putting some workouts together that won't impact my joints as much - stuff in the pool, etc. 

I am also trying this Thrive stuff for more energy etc in addition to my Belviq.  So, I will let you know how this goes.  I am doing a 3 day challenge trial right now.  I started it today.  If this works, I "may" become a distributor.  If I don't but it works, I will put you into contact with my distributor that has had awesome personal result.

Again, this is NOT to replace Belviq.  This will be to supplement to Belviq.  I am going through major plateaus and I need to keep motivated and to keep going.

I will keep you all posted in 3 days at the end of my 3 day challenge.

Misconceptions



As I started my Belviq journey, there was a private group set up for Belviq Users on facebook.  I love to see new people that join and start their journey with Bevliq.  Watching each as they go through the same journey I am going through.

One of the biggest misconceptions that most new Bevliq patients have is appetite suppression.  Belviq doesn't neccessarily supress your appetite.  You still need to eat!  Hunger is a natural feeling that you must pay attention to.  What is important is how MUCH you consume during your meal.  That's what I tell people starting with Belviq to look for vs. feeling hungry.  You will want to see how much you eat during a meal on Belviq and compare that to how much you ate without it. 

I hope you are all having a fantastic summer thus far.  Drink LOTS of water and remember to get your exercise in!!!  It's hot down here in Texas, but I still am pursuing through this heat and getting to the gym several times a week.


DISCLAIMER - I am NOT a physician. I am just an ordinary person taking Belviq and I like to share my tips and tidbits with those who are either on Belviq or considering taking Belviq for the first time.

1 year with Belviq

Well - what do you think?  Do you think Belviq really works? 











This was an impromptu photo so I wasn't wearing anything flattering.  BUT WHO CARES? HAHA!! 

Yes, BELVIQ WORKS!

photo comparison

This one is not drastic at all. But this was me in February and then now.  You can see progress still in the face and then in the middle section.

Belviq = confidence

Everyone knows my story of how I was picked on as a kid and I didn't have many friends in high school.  I never hung out or did any bad things like I should have (haha).  Since I have lost weight, I have gained more and more courage to go hang out with those from my high school days.  Here is a picture that was taken on Saturday.  I actually felt great around them.  A little anxiety in the beginnng but as the evening went on, I felt more and more comfortable.  I had to leave early (10:30 pm) to make the 2 hour trip back to Houston.  Otherwise, I would have stayed.












This is the first picture I have taken in a group that I actually liked.  When I posted it on facebook, I had compliments on how great I looked.  Thank you Ashley, Memo, Celia, Katharine, Tamara, Michelle, Terri Sue, Lara, and Charlotte for the hospitality and good times!

My workouts are going good.  I meet with a PT once a week.  He is WORKING this girl.  I expect results.  I may not see weight loss for a bit as muscle will be heavier than fat and that's ok.  I want to see INCHES.  After all, it's the inches people will notice, not the actual pounds.
