I know i'm going to catch some flack for this but I just started taking phentermine today because I have gained about 30lbs since my injury. I had previously taken it before my injury and lost about 20 lbs in a month with a healthy diet (1200 cals./day) and mild exercise. Because of my injuries, I work out 3x's a week (cardio. I am also working on changed my diet. I believe that taking these pills will help me lose the extra weight. On top of the weight loss I did awesome with my eating habits until my injury (about 2 months after I stopped taking Phentermine). I feel the phentermine pills help you "restart" your eating habits. I know being at home all day since my injury has made me snack and crave really bad. I am hoping this round will get me back on track.
I found a love for cooking since I am not able to work anymore (never had much time to cook when I was working) so I am hoping I can stick to good low fat recipes instead of fast food. I don't want to say that phentermine is a "miracle" drug but it really works if you have the self control and motivation to eat right and execise.
I guess I should mention that you can only get this by prescription. There are many side effects that lessen after continued use. The worst are probably the sleeplessness the first week + constipation throughout. You HAVE to drink lots of water while taking these pills.
