I started taking phen 30 mgs with the doctors care. I had a baby 7 months ago..im 20 and after trying to lose weight on my own i felt i needed more help so my doctor recommended phen 37.5. Im 5'7 and weigh 235 :( really upsest me be bc in use to weight 190.. never been a small girl but i didnt look like i weighed that much..i have a big frame and so i will never be small,,and that's fine i just want to be healthy..and 235 is not healthy whatsoever! My bodys total fat is 32% it needs to be much less..a female my height should weigh between 150-165 (according to my doctor) i would be happy just to be under 200... the day before i had my baby i weighed 256. i couldnt beleive it..but its not to late and i beleive i can do it! so im hoping gaining the 2 lbs overnight with the phen 37.5 is maybe muscle bc i am really sore today from work out dvds..if you have any suggestions please let me know :) thanks
If you gained 2 lbs. overnight, it is more than likely fluid. It is going to take at least a little bit of time to work. Make sure your salt intake is lowered, that you are getting enough food and not trying to starve, and that you watch your fat and sugar intake. When you are trying to lose weight, they usually suggest 1 day in 7 ot 10 that you ignore the diet to tell your body that it is not being denied anything, to not go into a slower metabolism. If you have been on the Phen for more than a few months and it doesn't seem to be working well, make sure they check your Thyroid and for diabetes.
