Weight Loss Journey

Last week I had my first appointment with at a weight management clinic. I can tell you it was very eye opening having the doctor go over my results. I learned a lot about my body’s fat segmentation during the appointment. I will expand on that later in another post; I’m so sleepy right now.

I received my prescription for Phentermine today which I will start taking Monday. I’m just hoping that the side effects listed isn’t too bad. I do know that the medication is not long term and that I still have to put in the work. I’m going to take plenty of before and after pictures and blog about my weight loss journey, which I pray will be successful. This is the heaviest that I have ever been and considering I’m pre-diabetic and pre-hypertensive, I know that I need to start taking better care of myself.

When I worked out with a personal trainer awhile back, I wanted to shoot for around 140 but he suggested 180. I have been down to 140 and I just didn’t look right. People actually thought I was doing crack.

So as of today, the ticker below is where I stand. I have about 66 pounds to lose. That shouldn’t be too hard, right? I’m going to stay positive about this.
