Ok so back from the doctors and with a packet of 30mg. We had a really good talk, and I really like this doctor... Maybe it helped him see my view because he was a chubba too lol (very good looking very dark skinned man and bald lol so he made me very flustered lol) Anywhooo.... Thank you for all the replies. I have done quite a bit of research on it and Im well aware of the effects it *might* have. One thing he was worried about is my history of depression but I assured him that I have a great support network if it all goes downhill.
I was also talking to the girl at the chemist who is on it and she says she takes it every second day because it made her a bit edgy lol
On the drive home I started getting so nervous about taking it (tomorrow), its one thing to read and hear about everyones experiences but its just made me nervous lol.
I was quite happy though, that I was weighed at the doctors and HAVE lost something since starting this shake diet, so that was a nice suprise. I will be writing out a eating/drinking/exercise plan. I told the doc that I really just want this as a kick start and I need it to help get me into an exercise routine because Im very much so lacking in the motivation and need something to help me past the pains (???) of begining.... Yeah I dont know if that makes sense. I took his card and told him I will be back to see him because Im very greatful and would love to have him help me through this.
So $118 dollars later, here I am. Nervous as hell but excited!
