In his defense, one of the main reasons I went in today was due to recent weight gain (20lbs in 2-3 months)



Aaaaaand....I'm 175

It's a drug used for weight loss.

So am I, but I'm 5'7". Neither of us needs a weight loss drug though! That should seriously only be reserved for the morbidly obese.

I'm 5'9 too, and 175 is actually my goal weight right now.



I was 175-180 there, but I didn't think you looked thick like I am, I have huge thighs and had gained a lot of muscle so I didn't think you were above 150. You carry your weight extremely well, at 175 I felt the best. At 150 I looked sick and hated the way I looked. Even if you have gained weight fast, I still think your doc was not right at all.

He said to use it for 2-3 months max and that it should knock out the weight I have put on suddenly, after that ill just need to continue to watch what I eat and exercise. They did blood work also to test for hypothyroidism and polycystic ovarian sydrome and I should get results back on that tomorrow.

I think if you want to lose weight tone up a bit if you feel like you need it, you can easily do it with exercising and maybe tweaking your diet a bit. I don't think you need the phentermine at all...have you taken any weight loss drugs before?

No, never. I have been doing the 30ds and have also cut my calories back to 1500 or less a day and have actually put ON 2lbs this week :/

You know that's normal if you're gaining muscle right? or if your body has decided to slow down your metabolism as a result of you cutting back on calories. I don't want to sound like a broken record and obviously you know your body more than anyone else...but I would highly recommend at least waiting for the test results to decide whether you want to take the phentermine.



Sorry if I'm preaching :/ lol
