In February, I had posted that I hit a plateau after being on Belviq for 7 months. Just like any drug, sometimes you build a tolerance. I was somewhat concerned and frustrated. Although I am not afiliated in any way with Arena Pharm or Eaisai Pharm (not an investor either), I was given a premium membership to www.investorvillage.com because those investors and alike wanted to hear from me and follow my story. There was a guy and sent me a message from the site that suggested maybe taking a small break from Belviq and start back up - it had worked for him.
So, I did. And then I found out I would be having knee surgery so my small break lasted more than a month.
Yesterday, I started back on Belviq. I was going to start last week but had to wait until I got enough money to get my RX refilled LOL. Anyway, I am AMAZED how this tip really worked.
Remember when I first started blogging about Belviq? I was stating how I had to force myself to eat. I would eat a few bites and feel so full. I also would feel "cold" or chilly even though it was dead summer. Over time, those intense feelings would subside. I got the same exact feelings again. I am having to force myself to eat again. What a wonderful feeling.
For those who have followed my blog from the beginning, I always set out with short time goals vs longer goals. This helps keep me motivated because success is easier to achieve. Obviously I have an ultimate goal, but I don't focus on that.
My short time goals and long term goals I set today are:
1. Finally get under 240 pounds. I've been hanging around in the 240's for 3 months. It's been over 15 years since I was below 240 pounds. I am less than 5 pounds from that goal - so I would be very happy to achieve this in the next week. With the way I feel right now, I think it is duable.
2. Get into a size 16! I'm in a size 18 and I have not been a 16 since 1996. I believe it will happen in about 10 pounds. My hope is by mid May! Perfect time for the summer!!!
3. I would like to be at a total of 75 pounds lost by my anniversary of starting with Belviq - which is towards the end of June. That's about 20 pounds from now and would put me at about 220 pounds. At this point, I will have the much needed breast reduction (I'll probably lose 30 pounds there alone LOL)
4. By the first of September, I would like to be at 199 (or below). There's a financial incentive involved in this number by this time. My boss promised me another $300 gift card to go clothes shopping if I hit 200 by 9/1.
5 - Reach a weight of 190 by the end of September. It will be this exact weight that will officialy pull me out of the "obese" category.
6 - My ultimate weight I would like to achieve is 155. That would be considered normal for my height and structure.
I am so happy Belviq found me!!!!!!!!!!
