I have no motivation. I think a lot of my problem is I can't lose weight because I can't get off the couch. I'm not a big eater I definitely eat all the wrong things but when it comes to eating I don't really over do it. I'm starting contrave tomorrow and in reading the reviews I'm wondering if this is what is right for me.
I don't really think it helped for energy. It helps you not think of food so much. Most of the time I don't care if I eat. I still do just not as much. This stuff will tell you when you are full. You eat more makes me sick. The first 3 weeks adjusting to this medicine is hard. I was dizzy nauseous had a headache. It did go away. I've been on it since March and have lost 40lbs. I'm pretty much a couch potato.
It didn't help me with energy. It helps me with not obsessing about food. I am able to stick to my plan of eating. I have lost 12 or so pounds since the end of June. Much better than staying where I was or gaining! You can always take some vitamin B-12 for energy. Or some folks use caffeine. I can say that some people are more energized. I think it depends on your body chemistry.
