I am in ballet and I'm 10 pounds over weight. If I cant meet my weight expectation I cant dance in the next competition. I've tried dieting, exercising.. everything. I need help!!
Hello. I suggest Phentermine. II is used and often done so successfully. However for the short term only, meaning as in two, maxiumn three weeks period of time due to possible severe side effects such as blood pressure issues (more often a rise) cardiac can be factors., Regards pledge
Can I ask you how tall you are and what your weight is? Ballet and modeling are two entities that encourage women to reach for unhealthy weights. Many times, I see young girls who want to participate in these entities and end up with eating disorders trying to reach some unhealthy ideal. Using drugs to reach an unhealthy weight may set you up for eating disorders. Some bodies arent meant to be a certain "ideal" weight and when young women want to reach this "ideal" they end up starting very unhealthy practices. Muscle is heavier than fat. If you have a heavier muscle build you will weigh more than a girl who doesnt have as solid a muscle build even at the same height. This doesnt mean that you are overweight. If you are truly 10lbs overweight for your height then cutting calories will work, especially if you are active.
Phentermine is indicated as a short-term (a few weeks) adjunct in a regimen of weight reduction based on exercise, behavioral modification and caloric restriction in the management of exogenous obesity for patients with an initial body mass index ≥ 30 kg/m2, or ≥ 27 kg/m2 in the presence of other risk factors (e.g., controlled hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia).
This would not be the right medication for you if you only have ten pounds to lose as I doubt your BMI is that high.
I'm a dietitian, so I'm sure we could come up with a few ideas. I'm adding you as a friend. Send me a PQ with your height, weight and age. And a 24 hr diet recall. There's many avenues we can go down if I get a better picture. Also, when is the competition. You can include all that in a PQ. But no to Phentermine. You need a script and I doubt any doctor in his right mind would prescribe it as I doubt you meet the criteria.
I'll be waiting to hear from you. There's one OTC med the FDA approved for weight loss. Orlistat. The drug works by reducing your gut's ability to absorb fat. Since this could also reduce the absorption of essential nutrients, if you take the drug you should also take a multivitamin supplement before going to bed, the FDA said. If you follow a low fat diet, it can work well, otherwise there's some horrific side effects. The other is Meridia , which is an appetite suppressant that works by acting on neurotransmitters in the brain. Meridia increases the amount of serotonin, dopamine and norepinepphrine in the synapses of your brain—which results in a decrease in appetite. I think you may need an Rx for this though.
Meridia also has potential side effects including dry mouth, constipation, insomnia, headaches and high blood pressure. Also, because Meridia has been linked with more than 28 deaths and hundreds of adverse reactions, the FDA has recently issued warnings about taking it.
Then Phentermine but that's not a good option at all. Especially when you're only trying to lose ten pounds.
K, adding you. Hang on! We can figure out something :))))
I'm sure you have heard of couples who try to get pregnant for years, and they try every avenue known to man to have a child of their own. (I'm going somewhere with this I promise). Ok, then they finally give up the struggle and realize its not going to happen, and then suddenly BAM! "Oh Honey!" They are pregnant. Having said that, I will tell you that I was at a plateau for about a year. Yes, a year, I had tried everything I read, everyone's advise, starvation of course, but I could not break that weight. Finally, I threw my hands in the air, and I just stopped thinking about it morning noon and night. I stopped weighing myself eight times a day, and a miracle happened, I started to notice that my clothes were feeling a little less fitted. I weighed myself and I dropped 10lbs after that. I'm just saying, eat smart, keep dancing, drink a lot of water and enjoy life without that stress over your head.
(Concentrate on how the music makes you feel, instead of part of a performance process) I Ballroom Dance, and i dance much better if my teacher lets me pick a song that touches my heart and soul. Even so,I always use my iPhone at the end of a new choreography addition so I can watch it over an over between practices. I quit dancing for a month one time because I thought I looked fat, and I was not watching my footwork or my styling, just the belly, I didn't even hear the song. Now, every time I ask someone at the studio to film us dancing, my teacher makes me look in his eyes, and repeat his words that I am not going to obsess on my body, I am going to put forth that energy toward improving my technique. Re channel that stress energy toward some kind of new activity that clears your mind. You're a ballerina, the pressure is higher than any of us can imagine, but it's worth a try. OH! And buy a"Magic Bullet" it will be the best $50 you spend in your life. I make smoothies constantly: they are healthy, they don't make you feel full and I lose weight when I am drinking them for breakfast and dinner and a health lunch. Lately I made a "Green Machine", it's a veggie smoothie, sounds nasty, it was delish! Good Luck, Emily Post says that we are not supposed to say "I understand" to others who are struggling, but maybe I do... also did you know that a piece of dark chocolate and about six/seven unsalted nuts (I like Almonds), about 15 minutes before you eat decreases you appetite?
