How many calories are you eating a day? My doctor put me on Phentermine a couple of weeks ago and I'm just not hungry. I'm usually averaging between 800 and 1200 calories a day, depending on what I eat for supper. I burn between 2800 and 3100 calories a day, at least at the moment when I'm this heavy. I've lost about 20 pounds in the last few weeks. Is this okay? Has anyone had luck losing weight like this? My doctor doesn't want me to eat more than one serving of carbs a day and one serving of fruit a day. The rest he wants to be lean protein and vegetables. Between the restrictions and the Phentermine, I just can't physically eat any more than I already am. I lift weights, and do cardio every day. I'm trying to lose weight and get in shape fairly quickly because I'm 30 and I've had 3 miscarriages in the past year and a half, and gone through 3 failed fertility treatments. The fertility doctor I'm seeing won't do any more treatments until I get to at least 200lbs. Right now I'm about 234. Any advice would be awesome!

Sunday is Fasting day
I always fast 2 - 3 times every week, and not Sunday. As Sunday is my quietest day and it would be too difficult. I prefer 'fast' days to be my busiest

A Diff. Kind of "Scale"
I would take them maybe once a month or every 2 weeks, because not seeing the progress right away might be disappointing, even if there is progress
