I have needed to lose weight for a long time, but nothing ever seemed to work. Well, I have a friend who I noticed had been a lot more successful than I had, and I asked her how she was managing to lose so much weight. This was the first time I heard of phentermine. Due to all my spectacular failures in the past, I decided to be smart and do some research.
I learned phentermine diet pills were prescribed more in the United States for weight loss than any other medication, and that they came in capsules and tablets. I also found out the FDA approved it in 1959 to suppress the appetite and help the obese. I read a lot of statistics about how it suppressed the brain's hunger response, and boosted energy. I think what made me decide to give it a try was I believe in the FDA, and they had already given their approval.
I made an appointment and talked to my doctor, and he said it was a good product. He wrote me a prescription, and told me to take the phentermine diet pills for twelve weeks. He encouraged me to eat healthier, and told me the medication would give me extra energy and I should be more active. He also reassured me it was safe to use. The prescription was for phentermine 37.5 mg, and the doctor said this was the highest dosage because I had some serious weight to lose.
I will admit I really didn't think the medication was going to work because nothing else ever had, but I took the phentermine 37.5 just like I was supposed to. I was skeptical the first couple of weeks, but then I weighed myself. I had lost six pounds, and I was ecstatic. I started making an effort to eat better, and began taking walks through my neighborhood. Its hard to explain but the more weight I lost, the more determined I became to finally get rid of the extra pounds.
The energy really helped, and I started feeling better. I wasn't so tired all the time. At the end of the twelve weeks I had lost 43 pounds with phentermine. When I went to my doctor I weighed 211 pounds, and at 5 feet four inches, that's a lot of extra weight. I never thought I would believe in any weight loss product, but it really worked. I just took it right before I ate breakfast every day. I am still losing weight because during those twelve weeks I made some healthy changes. I am not there yet but I am on my way, and I know I will reach my goal. Due to phentermine, I believe I will be around to watch my grandkids grow.
