Dear Body, (life on Adipex)
Monday, September 20, 2010
Life on Apipex is good. Not what I expected.
From my Doctor: you will notice an increase of energy, it will curb your appitite. Side effects are dry mouth, constipation, and insomnia.
From my friends: OMG, you will never want to eat! I went 2 days without getting hungry! I was such a b!tch, my husband hates that I take them! I couldn't sit still!
My reality: The dry mouth sucks! It's not too big a deal as long as I have a bottle of water handy though. I started taking a colase everyday with the Adipex, so no constipation. I get hungry. It's not a OMG I'm starving hungry, just hungry. When I eat, it doesn't take as much to fill full. I also make a concentrated effort to eat slow, which is really hard for me. I'm not always hungry though, and that has stopped the contstant thoughts of food, of when I can have a snack, who will notice how much I am eating, you all know what I am talking about. I'm still tired. I am not bounding about with endless energy. I no longer feel like I am dragging through the day though. I'm still ready to go to bed at 9 each night. I do feel a little perkier through the day. For anyone who actually knows me, this is pretty amazing, cause I am a pretty perky person without any drug assistance :0)
I have lost 7 pounds already. So it is making a difference, even though I don't always FEEL that there is anything going on in this body of mine.
I get frustrated. I'm feeling pretty darn frustrated right now. If you were to look at this body of mine, you would guess me at 145-150 lbs (I win against the weight guy at the fair every time!). Never would you think I was over 200, or had ever been. My fat is pretty proportionately distributed through my whole body, being a little booty and thigh heavy (a pear shape for sure). I can gain or lose 30 pounds, and it barely changes my waist and thighs. I won't start to look like I'm losing weight before I've lost at least 20 - 25 pounds. I know me. I NEED the feedback from the people around me, and I won't get it if they don't notice.
I just wanna throw twinkies at these darn little skinny people that drop 2 dress sizes when they drop four pounds! I won't drop a pant size til I am down at least 40! :o(
Ah, well....on to another day!
