Hello. My wife is 5 feet and her weight is 54 KG. Last one week she has followed the GM Diet Plan and completed the one week course. But still she is in the same weight. Would you please suggest any other diet plan for her which will work out?View Thread
I just started Belviq three days ago. My starting weight is 203 and I'm 5' 3". After taking my first dose, I had zero appetite which is very unusual for me. I didn't feel like eating anything at all, not even my favorite foods. I literally had to force myself to eat a few bites of food for the next 2 1/2 days. I ate an ounce of steak, a few bites of rice and corn, watermelon, cantelope, pretzels, a cup of oatmeal and a half of a bagel with sausage with cheese. I also drank a lot of green tea. That was my entire food list for the two days. I had no hunger pangs or desire to eat. I'm sensitive to new medications so I attributed the loss of appetite to this.
Today is day three and I just took my morning dose and I'm hungry. I feel like my old self again, hungry, food looks good, sounds good and a good old fashioned binge sound like a great time. However, I only have the 15 days on Belviq due to the free trial and I'm trying to use these days as a "kick off" to a healthier lifestyle of eating; not a fad crash diet. I don't have insurance that will pay for any of my prescription even though my doctor is more than willing to write it for me. My BMI is 36. (despite knowing that the initial weight loss isn't a "real" fat loss, I still weighed myself this morning and I was down 3.5 pounds)
I have felt no adverse symptoms that I see reported by others. No headache, nausea, dizziness, constipation, ect. I have seen that for others, their appetite diminishes around day four and continues to decrease as the weeks progress. I'm hoping that will be the case with me. I'm wishing I didn't feel hungry again.
I'm debating whether or not to refill my prescription when I finish my free trial and after reading up on the medication. Studies show that the weight loss is "minimal" at best so I will wait until the last minute to decide. Funny, as I'm writing this, a Belviq commercial came on. I wonder if this is a sign.
I have also read of other people combining the start of Belviq with a three to seven day juice cleanse. Had I known that I would have lost my appetite entirely for the first 2.5 days, I would have done it too. Today I'm feeling the effects of not consuming enough calories. I feel a little weak(ish) like you would when you skip a couple of meals in a row. Today I will be eating in moderation and be making wise food choices. Since I do only have the 15 days, I'm really working hard to use them to my advantage. I'm also starting yoga with a private instructor who is in the process of getting licensed. She needs to teach so many hours free so it works out for both of us.
I am new to this dicussion board and I am hoping to find some support out there. I was diagonsed with type 2 diabetes about 3 months ago. I now realize that I should have listened when my glucose readings were on the high side a couple of years ago, but you know the drill, it won't happen to me!!! Well, it has and I have to take this serious. Of course I need to loose weight, but keeping the sugar within normal range seems more important to me. The flip side is that I am loosing weight. Since being diagonsed I have lost about 25pounds, but now I seem to be stuck. I am working on my attitude and trying to convince myself that trying new things is a good idea. I am also trying not to listen to the complaints of those I cook for and make them a starch which I usually don't eat. BUT, it's getting harder. I decided to try this new website and see if I get some new motovatation, I pray I do. I know tracking my food and exercise is necessary, I've been doing that on MyFitnessPal, but I'm looking to change things up a bit in the hopes that it will be the change I need. So, I hope there are other 60+ people out there that can relate and will join my discussion. God Bless you and I look forward to hearing from someone CyndiMomView Thread
That terrible number!!!! I deal with this every year, when my company checks my weight and calculates my BMI they tell me I am overweight and it looks like I am not working hard at staying fit, which I am, and have been for YEARS!!!! I bike 30+ miles a week and work out with weights 4x weekly and eat reasonably well...people who know me laugh when I tell them that they have labeled me overweight...when are they going to stop using this foolish number to label people?!?!? It's not even accurate most of the time.View Thread
Hello everyone, It's my second day on the product. Whether it's fat or water (LOL) I lost 2.3 lb's the first day. Although I am hitting the gym 30 minutes a day, consuming 3 liters + H2O, and eating apples or carrots between meals.
I am actually splitting my dose up between am/pm because I have problems sleeping and tend to snack a lot at night. Believe it or not, last night was the first time I slept so well in a long time, with the exception of up and down for Bathroom Runs (urinating a lot).
