    Another 50 to go to see 199lbs!

    Feels good, The only problem I'm having is psychological and dealing with what I look like still, 99.9% of people dont understand, but even after 100lbs of weight loss, I can look in the mirror nude and not see any change.

    I'm not getting depressed over it, but its something that is bugging me.

    If you want to know how I did it:

    Starting in July of 2009 (partly being inspired by Fubu's thread), I got my fat ass up on an elliptical EVERY WEEKDAY for as much as I could stand, after a few months I could breeze thru 30 minutes at about 50% resistance which gave me a -350 calorie workout (going by the machine itself) At the end of September, I had hit a plateau that I could not break, it was ~315lbs. I was pissed off because I felt healthy, ate healthy (I use dailyburn to track EVERYTHING), excersised 5X weekly, and from Mid September to Mid October I didnt loose a single fucking pound.

    So off to the doctor I go, he does a Thyroid test (all good), does the Cholesterol (2 times since he thought the first was incorrect, pipes are clean as a wistle) and after that decided to put me on phentermine.

    I started at at 15ml/day + sub 1K/day calorie diet and after 2 months bumped up to 30mg/day and maintained sub 1K calorie/day average.
    I'm now taking a 37.5mg once daily and eating ~1K calories a day and loose weight FAST!


    I have not gotten on the elliptical since starting the phentermine, but I feel fucking awesome regarding energy levels, and the side affects of being on phentermine are great, my output at work has trippled because of the way it helps me maintain thoughts and get shit done. My house is almost finished being remodeled too :)

    oh.,...and the Doc wants me to get back on the Elliptical and bump my calorie intake up from 1500-2000/daily. I mostly eat lean white meat(grilled) and either grilled/steamed vegetables (LOTS of Okra & Asparagus & Broccolli)

    He will not prescribe me more than 37.5/daily phentermine unlike most docs that start people out at that level, but its been working for me so I'm going with it.

    from someone that used to smoke Meth & has tried Phentermine, they told me all Phentermine is, is Meth in a pill form that doesnt rot your teeth.

    (dont know how I could have avoided using is 2x back to back)

    Congrats on the weight loss man! Glad I could be any kind of inspiration for you. Like I said in my thread, if I end up helping anybody get healthier, everything I went through was worth it.

    Keep up the great work!

    I'm not sure what phentermine is, but if its an amphetamine derivative 1k calories really isn't hard. Take adderall some time, if you eat without forcing yourself then I'll be shocked.

    If there is one thing a fat person is good at, thats dodging camera's...I do have some Pics that I'll scan...

    But even now at 245, I feel like a HUGE fatass....even though I'm wearing size 38 pants now (regular fit) when I used to only be able to fit into size 44 loose fit
