Fabulous Friday!

I am at work today, after being off yesterday.  I work four tens so Thursday is my day off.  I had a busy Thursday, but it was so relaxing at the same time.

I have to tell y'all I am thrilled,tickled pink and all hell's and bells with this Phentermine.  I got on the scale today and have lost another three pounds.  10 pounds lost since my band was removed!   This is amazing to me.  Yesterday my dose went up to 37.5mg from 15mg.  I had mentioned before that my Dr. starts you out on a low dose to help your body adjust, in helping to alleviate any side effects.  I am happy to say that I am not having side effects at this time.  Just massive amounts of energy, and NO FREAKING HUNGER!!!!!  Yes, I am still not hungry.  I have to remind myself to eat.  I could do this forever.  Food is not constantly on my mind.  In fact I sat at work on Tuesday during treat day and watched as my fellow coworkers ate themselves into a FOOD COMA!  LOL  They had so much sugar, it was incredible to me. 

 I am still logging my choices daily and making sure I am getting all my protein, water and lots of fruit and vegetables.  Do you know it has been over 4 years since I could eat fruit.  I could never eat it because I never had room for it with my band.  I always ate the protein first, then some veggies ( which was also very very hard for me to do)!  I am loving the taste of fruit again.

Nichole is doing fab as well.  She is down 10 pounds, and will soon scream ( probably this weekend) as she descends below 300 pounds since way before Cole was born.  I am so happy for her.  She is loving how she is feeling as well.  To see her not just sitting on the couch and actually going out and walking twice a day 3.47 miles is amazing.  She even has Adam and Cole walking with her once a day!!!!!  Adam has lost some of his tummy that he had gotten over the winter.  He is now running at lunch recess at school, they have a running program that they can voluntarily do.  He is loving it!  I am stoked that my family is getting healthy right along with me.

Nichole and I are doing a new exercise class on Saturday mornings at the Riverplex.  It is called Shbam!  Here is a description of the class:

Les Mills: Sh'Bam
Sh'Bam Logo
SH’BAM features simple but seriously hot dance moves and is the perfect way to shape up and let out your inner star – even if you’re dance challenged. Set to a soundtrack of chart-topping popular hits, dance music that is heard in the hottest nightclubs around the world, familiar classics remixed and modernized Latin beats, SH’BAM is the ultimate fun and sociable way to exercise. Each 45-minute class is vibrant, unique and varied.

I will let you know how it goes, I am excited.  I love ZUMBA so much and this will be a nice change up!

I have a soccer game at 11am on Sat after this class and it is suppose to be raining YUCK!  Oh well, he is my grandson that I love and adore so I will be there.

Well I must get back to work, I want this Friday to fly!!

So happy to hear you are doing so well. Years ago I took Phentermine and I loved it as well...that was when I was in my 20's and didn't have high blood pressure. I also remember having to remind myself to eat.
