update

Hello everyone?  Where has the time gone?????

So, a lot is going on.  I started a new job which is very challenging, overwhelming, and I work 12 hours a day just to get my hands on everything.  So I literally have zero blog time.

Belviq - a great drug, but I hit a really bad plateau.  But we think we found a solution.  There are studies about a combo of Belviq plus phentermine.  After 6 months of trying to get this, my doctor FINALLY has allowed me to try it.  Oh, I think it's working.  My appetite is nothing again.  I just started a few days ago.  So I am excited.   I did try one day just with phentermine and it was not the same as with the combo of Belviq and Phentermine.  That seems to be the magic for now.

I just need to get over the hump and lose an additional 50 pounds.  If I can at least get 30 pounds off, then I am ok with a plateau.  30 pounds is my magic number and goal for coming off completely of all medication.  So, I am pretty excited!!

I'll keep you posted next week on how I did!!!

Update

I know I have not updated in a while.  I was laid off from my job in September and had to cut out Belviq due to cost.  Fortunately, I landed a better job very quickly and after a few weeks, I finally went and got my Belviq refilled yesterday.  So, hopefully I can get back on the weight loss train - in time for the holidays!!

I'll keep you posted now as the journey begins!

a proud moment

A year ago, I posted a picture here on my blog of a dress that I bought - several sizes smaller - that I said I would get in to one day.  One particular "hater" on my blog said "Fat chance" that I would ever fit into that dress.   That comment was pretty mean and I wanted to cry.  But, I moved forward and worked very very hard.   Last night, I decided to wear that dress.  Now, I did try it on a few months ago and it did fit, although it was kind of tight.  Well, it fits PERFECT and because I am so tall, it's more of a top LOL (Another words, bending over gave a whole another view of fabric).

I had rave reviews on my outfit.  Makes me happy.

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
