tiny little update

If you are interested in my diet pill Qsymia results so far, I have lost 7 pounds in three weeks and have not had any side effects.  I have moved from1/2 dose to full dosage capsules.  My appetite has greatly decreased but I'm not sure if it is the pill or a placebo effect.  For more information see my earlier post Skeptically Hopeful.

  3. Ileana -- I just hope it eventually will be a less expensive over the counter drug because they say it will be a lifetime pill. I do feel better and have a lot more energy.

    Jeanie -- The results are a little better than expected so I am anxious for my medical check up. The wierd part is that I am not eating enough calories. That is certainly not a problem I've ever had before.

  4. Why does it have to be lifetime? Can you not just change you lifestyle once you do not have so much weight to lug around? My weight loss has not been nearly as nice...and I am working my a** off as you know! Glad you are feeling no side effects!!

  5. I might ask my doctor about those - but you said they were expensive and no insurance - right? sandie

  6. Tabor -- You are asking the same question I plan to ask at my next appointment. Perhaps it is because I have tried everything on my own to control my appetite and haven't been able to do it so possible there is no hope for me. Health wise I've got to get this weight off.

    Chatty Crone -- Yes I believe $150 per month is very expensive. However some people spend a lot more on other kind of weight loss plans so probably it is in line. I was considering NutriSystem or Jenny Craig and those would be over $300 for my food alone and still would have to have groceries for Ron. I am on the lookout for more coupons. Right now a person's BMI has to be over 30 to qualify for a prescription.

  16. i thought about this earlier this year, but have dropped 40 pounds without a pill and i am very happy. Best of luck to you, i know of others who have even had surgery to lose weight because it is so unhealthy!
