I'm getting ready to start Saxenda for weightless and I am wondering if anyone has any tips that worked for them? I'm getting such mixed reviews and I just really want this to work for me!
* Also, has anyone taken this along side with metformin? If. you did, were there any side effects?

weight loss* not weightless lol
I started Saxenda last November. I was at 188 lbs. I am only 5'3. I did not workout,drank quite a bit of wine every week and had a terrible diet full of carbs.
When I started Saxenda the only thing I really noticed is that it took away my cravings for bad food. My doctor gave me a weight loss plan. It was basically like Atkins. Portion control is so important. Also cut the eating at 6 pm if at all possible. I cut most of the carbs and I don't drink much alcohol at all anymore. When I do have a few glasses of wine it doesn't make me feel good. I started going to the gym and walking on the treadmill or doing elipitical everyday. I have lost 40 lbs so far and would like to lose 10-15 more. I feel and look so much better. I have gone from a 12 to an 8. Drink a lot of water.
I am so thankful that my doctor put me on Saxenda. I inject the medication into my stomach. I have noticed bruising at my injection site sometimes.
I hope this helps encourage you!
