(somewhat) at peace

today marks 5 weeks since i went off the phentermine. i really didn’t think it had been that long. and, in that five weeks i have gained only 0.4 pounds, which is awesome. i was afraid i would gain most of it back by now. i lost 10 pounds on the phentermine, whcih is right on target since the recommendation for healthy weight loss is 0.5-1 pound a week, and now i’m still down 9. that’s good enough for me…for now. my doctor wants me to be off of it for 2-3 months before she puts me back on, and i’d like to do one more round to get down past 150. then, i think i’d be happy.

i’ve gotten back into the exercise routine here lately, even though sometimes my schedule makes it difficult. instead of riding the bike for 45 minutes, i’ve started doing aerobics and intervals on the bike, which joe and i think will boost my metabolism much more than just regular bike riding. hopefully i’ll start seeing the results of that soon.

i just hope i can put that off and *really* start gaining weight soon…for other reasons, of course.
