I started taking the Qsymia, I’m officially on Day 3 of treatment, but have only taken 2 days of medication. I have a 6 week treatment plan, identical to this one here. I am scheduled to visit with the doctor at my 6th week to review progress.
On the exercise front, I’m bumping it way up. Here is the schedule:
- Saturday – walk with friends
- Sunday – Zumba class
- Monday – Boxing class
- Tues – Bootcamp class
- Wed – Yoga
- * Thurs – Bootcamp
- Friday – NA
I’m traveling this week on Thursday and Friday so I’m not sure if Thursday’s class will happen, but you get the idea… I’ve not only have something scheduled, I have someone scheduled to do it with me. It really is the only way I’ll do it, especially if its in the early morning.. guilt is the only motivator for me before 8am…
With that, as of today, I’ve not lost any weight per say. Here is how I felt:
- Friday – so much energy. I took the pill around 7am, had boat loads of energy all day, and I had CRAZY dreams on Friday night! 4 dreams, 1 was a sex dream, all others included being enormously thirsty and not being able to drink enough water….
- Saturday – I opted out of taking it on Saturday. I did not feel hungry all day, did eat a little bit and felt extremely uncomfortable/bloated. I figured it was from all the water I “drank” in my dreams.
- Sunday – took the pill at 8am, did not feel hungry all day, I did do a Zumba class (loved it!), took a nap, ate very little, and had a few glasses of wine in the evening….
I’m not feeling any different mood wise, but I’m definitely NOT hungry.. even when my stomach growls from hunger, and I would normally want to eat (like after exercise), I dont feel it…. so if I do eat something, I eat less. LIke today, I had a cup of greek yogart and that was plenty. But, in general, eating hasn’t been my problem, lack of exercise has (or excess drinking.. I can’t tell), so I’m crossing my fingers that this opportunity has given me the kick in the butt I need to get active again.
O.k. I have a very early start to my day tomorrow. I hope this information was helpful…
