If you recently started a Phentermine 37.5mg weight loss journey, reading about others’ success stories can prove inspiring. The following stories are by those who lost 20 or more pounds–find out what they did to lose weight and keep it off.
Don’t Deprive Yourself
Remember, weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint.
“You can and should eat what you like! If this is going to be the way you live the rest of your life, you’ve got to find a happy medium where you are eating foods you enjoy and moving in ways that feel good to you! Have patience – this is not a race and there isn’t an endgame – this is about changing your mindset forever.” –Jenni Crutcher, who lost 27 pounds
Reduce Your Meat Intake
If you can give up meat completely, go for it.
“One key weight loss tip that helps me stay on track is refraining from eating meat, which also greatly improved my gout. I am now more active, going for walks, and doing yoga for exercise.”–Paul Kirchubel, who lost over 200 pounds
Take the Journey One Day at a Time
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
“Take it one day at a time. I know that sounds really simple, but on my first day, I felt so overwhelmed about how long it would take to hit my goal or to ‘get healthy’ but I then realized I didn’t have to worry about the future, I just had to worry about today. And just focusing on my meals and exercise for that day made it easier to do it that day, and the next day, and the day after, and the journey became less daunting.”–Meghan Fernandes, who lost 58.4 pounds
