It feels so darn good!

It's amazing how good I feel after working out.

Here's a typical day for me:

  • Wake up. Do 30 minutes Wii Fit Plus Yoga
  • Eat an apple (usually 1/2 because I cut it up and share it with my girls)
  • Do 30 minutes Wii Fit Plus Basic Step and Rhythm Boxing, sometimes a little Kung Fu Rhythm
I do the Yoga every morning. Everything else is switched up a bit. I do Biggest Loser on the Wii 3 times a week for 30 minutes. I do Strength Training with Wii Fit Plus every 3 days.

I am able to think more clearly. I sit up a little straighter/taller. I feel skinny. I know I'm not quite there yet, but I can feel that I'm skinnier. My 7 year old daughter even told me this morning, "Mom, you're skinny!" Made me smile.

I have been an example to my children.  We all take turns on the Wii. It's awesome!

So to update, I've been on Phentermine about 7 weeks. (plus working out and cutting calories)
My scale says I've lost about 9 pounds. More importantly, I'm fitting into new clothes I bought last year that I had outgrown. Yeah I had started losing weight last year, got frustrated and felt stuck. So now I guess I'm back to where I was then, only I think a little bit better.  It's empowering and it feels so darn good! 

I found my measuring tape, so I took measurements today. Boy do I wish I had found it 7 weeks ago. Oh well. I will try to update at least once or twice a month.


  1. That is AWESOME! Good for you!! :)

  2. Thanks Rebekah! I don't think I'll be on the Phentermine too much longer, side effects are getting annoying! Hopefully I can continue to lose/win on my own.


Thank you for your comments! I'll try to return the favor.
