Well I went to my 1st appointment. It went well I am actually 249 lbs and not 245 lbs... But that is okay! I am excited about starting... My hip is a little tender from the B-12 shot... No big deal though. My goal weight is 150... I think...

Are any of you doing the HCG shots as well?

I will go back on 11/20 and give you my update! I am REALLY looking forward to looking and feeling better by Christmas!!!! I would like to loose 20 lbs by then... I hope I am not being unreasonable...

Yeah for all of us!!

Hi ya'll, well I went for my fourth weigh in on 11-13.  I only lost 2 pounds over the past two weeks.  But it is my own fault, I didn't work out as much as I should have and over the weekend I went to visit my family and it is really hard to eat right and exercise there.  But my goal is to lose 10 pounds a month.  So far 2 months and down 21 pounds.  started at 203#s and now 182#s  I'm kind of bothered that I was that close to being in the 170's and fell short but I'll be there next time for sure.   Good luck everyone, I love to read all the great news.

Hello ,
I read from the beginning of this forum to the end. I spoke to people and tried to get the real facts.  I talked to people that I have seen the results of this before trying this myself. So last week I went for my first visit and I didn't believe it would work. I have a little higher sugar level than I should, so this is the real reason I need to get my weight down. I have a small daughter and I can't see myself having a medical condition as severe as diabetes at 25 years old. I am trying to live life for her. So I weighed in at 186.5-my highest weight ever. I decided I was going to pay for this and be serious. I weighed in today and I lost 11.4 lbs in 1 week. I ate right and followed the directions faithfully and excersiced. My goal easy reach goal would be 160 lbs, but I think I might try for 150 lbs. Good Luck to all those who are researching. I couldn't believe it but IT WORKS!!!

I just started so I don't have any wonderful results as of yet... But I wanted to share with you what my doctor told me... He said that if one of the pills (appetite suppressants) didn't work to tell him and he can switch them around. Also he went over in depth with me what to eat and how to and how much to exercese. He said that he can give me the B-12 shot to help me with some energy and he can give me pills to help with appetite control but then he said I have to do my part too. I HAVE to eat 1000 calories a day and I HAVE to exersice. He told me (which we all know) that those two things, diet and exercise, are the olny things that are going to make you loose weight. In reading the past posts on here it is the people who have really worked at making it work... I am guilty of not exercising like I should and I am sure I will not have the same results as some. But anyhow my point is maybe you can check whit your Doctor to see what you can be doing to make your weight loos experience a more beneficial one. Also for me I just looked up Weight loss places in the phone book and started calling them and asking if they offered the B-12 shot. That is pretty simple I am sure you have already gone that route... The shot does make me feel good and I do have an abnormal boost of energy. So good luck to you!! Just stay focused it takes a long time to put the weight on and even longer to take it off... Don't cha just wish we could wake up thin??? I DO!!!! :)

Hello again!!!  Well it has been one crazy week for me......I have 3 boys 15/13/5 and my 5 year old had the stomach flu this week.  Did not get much sleep nor exercise in.  We spent one day in ER for dehydration. Poor little thing only 35lbs!!!  I did however manage to get to my appt. on Mon. nurse said I had only lost a pound.  My scale at home said 3, but she did weigh me on a different scale then the first weigh in.  They took me off the phendimentrazine and put me on the 37.5 phetermine and upped my water pill to a full tab.  I noticed the difference in my appetite. I just don’t feel the energy I had the first week. She said that B12 shots people usually take once a month.  I go back on Monday and I think I am going to try to get one again.  I really felt the energy difference last week. I will keep my progress posted but using my scale at home. I really feel for u moms I know where u are coming from. I use to have sooo much energy and be soooo active. Now I can’t keep up w/the everyday things!!! Nor my kids!!!  I did get a treat this week which brightened my week.  My cousin treated me to a fancy haircut highlights and all.... went from long hair mostly in pony tail to a new color and short.... I also had a charity banquet I attended so at least I got to dress up and get out.... I am a stay at home mom that helps out my hubbies business once and a while.....

Hi everyone, I just started the program today and was given 37.5mg of Phentermine, Fiber tablets, 200mcg of Chromium and the B12 shot for $65. My weekly visits are going to cost me $35 which includes all of the above medication. I tried this program about 15 years ago in Chicago and it was great but of course I was not ready and dedicated. My husband learned of the program from several co-workers that are doing wonderful on it. Therefore, he felt it would be a great program for me and give him relief from me nagging him about gastric surgery that he is totally against. I had a complete physical and blood work done by my primary physician on 11/14/07 and join the program on 11/16/07. During my weigh in with my primary doctor the scale showed 300 pounds but the program scale showed 294.8 which was an electronic scale. I know I hadn't lost any weight so scales sometime lie. Needless to say, I'm determine to make this program work and was told by my primary doctor that she could give me the B12 shot, as well as the Phentermine. I plan to stick with the program until after the holidays and then start going to my primary doctor for follow-up, the shot and medication being that it can be administered under my insurance at no additional cost to me.

Lastly...RiceGirl916 the place I went to is located in Folsom @ 1835 Prairie City Road 916-351-9457 Dr. Ron Stone. I look forward to sharing my progress with each of you and wish each and every one of you great success on your quest.

Well today was the day....I had my second weigh in

11/707     197.5 - STARTING WEIGHT
11/13       191.0 - WEEK ONE
11/20       189.0 - WEEK TWO
11/28       Next weight check

So as you can see I only lost 2 pounds but at least I got into the 180's.... I have set a mini goal of 185 for next week.  I am going to do my best to get an hour of cardio in each evening.  The doctor says I need to do more cardio!  She also said that she will give me the Lipotropic shot at next weeks appointment.

Happy Thanksgiving to all and I'll check in mid week and of course post next Tuesday...no take that back...next Wednesday they didn't have a Tuesday time available.

Until Then-

Just wanted to agree with your doctor.  The Vit B12 shots help with energy but the weight loss comes from eating less and choosing the right foods. It is important to stay away from refined carbohydrates and eating a diet with plenty of lean protein ( poultry, fish, seafood) and healthy green vegetables and fruit.  The appetite suppressant helps control your appeitite.  Add exercise and resistance training and you have the perfect recipe for weight loss.  I am the nutritional/exercise counselor with Dr. Debra Figueroa at Success by Design of Tampa Bay and we are seeing amazing results with our patients.  Patients lose up to 20-25 pounds in the first six weeks on our program.  We teach patients how to lose the weight but also how to keep it off.  We are right in Pinellas Park Florida. www.poundaweightampabay.com is our website.

Well I am so disappointed not physically but finacially. My husband lost his job recently so I had Budgeted my paycheck for the bills this month and I when all was said and done i had to push my doctor's appointment out another week. Talk about Pissed. I go every 3 weeks. Well I could have let that get me down but I didn't. I kept up with everything the eating, Curves, & the pill popping just not the shots. I was weighed at Curves at 2 1/2 weeks and I lost weight. Hooray! not as mush as I would have liked but I lost weight. I double checked the weight to make sure I didn't gain after Thanksgiving and I kept it off no gain and no loss. I can't wait to get my shot Friday I hope to lose some weight this week all on my own.

Starting Weight 11/2 ~ 228
Personal Weigh-in 11/20 ~ 218

B12 does not have to be taken by a shot.  There are plenty of other alternatives to outside of shots that will accomplish the same goal.  The one i found was XS energy drinks, which are fullof vitamins, minerals, herbs and about 1/4 of a B12 shot (and they taste good).  There are 10 different flavors and have zero carbs and zero sugars.  You can get them by the case and end up costing you only $2 a can.  I get them along with all my other nutrition supplements at www.health.odint.com I hope they help you as they have help myself and others.

Hello,
I am taking the B12 shot, appetite suppressants, a multivitamin and a calcium supplement. I am also on a very strict diet. It's hard but I love the results. I started at 186.5, Week #1=175, Week #2=173. I go again on Wednesday 11/28 and I am really excited. It really is a lifestyle change. Now that I see the results I want to keep the weight off even if I wasn't taking the shot and the extra pills. I have so much more energy. I am a full time mom, full time employee at a fast paced financial company, a full time student in a online masters program and I volunteer for some events here and there on top of taking my daughter to ballet every week on saturday morning. This was the best thing for me to feel energized and love life. Good luck to you all and I will post how well I did after thanksgiving (I didn't eat that much-really proud of myself).

I am just going to follow dr. scale because mine is always different......
11/5/07       190lbs start        b12 shot and phendimetrazine  1/2 tab water pill for week  
11/12/07     189lbs week 1     they changed me to 1/2 tab of 37.5 phentermine a day (generic adipex)
                                            full water pill tab
11/19/07     187 lbs week 2     same scripts....lost some weight
11/26/07     185.8 lbs week 3  b12 shot same scripts ... lost some weight go back on 12/17

Well I know first week had some energy towards end of week then notice appetite changing
week 2 everyone was sick in my house then week 3 holiday so did not get much cardio in.
So not bad for about 3 weeks at least i did not gain any weight.  I had asked about b12 shot they will give it once a month. I am gonna take a b12 complex supplement at home for now.  I also asked about CLA no one understood what it was so here and there I will take too.  I thought I would lose weight quicker like so many post I read, but for now I have to be happy that I am working on it.  I did lost a few inches mostly water weight.  I over heard another male patient say he was taking pills 3 times a day! I wonder what he was taking they only have me on 1/2 tab a day.  Nurse said they will change as needed as we go through program and it is so people dont feel dependent on pills. I also wanted to get script for 30 tabs even though i know i only take 1/2 because walmart is cheaper to buy for 30 is 27.00 15 is 21.00 that would be 60 for my dosage and i just paid $15 for 11 tabs. she said it is a narcotic and if i were to go up in dosage then they would write script. well keep me posted on everyones progress it is great to know how it is going for everyone.....

A total loss of 17 lbs in roughly a 3 week period. I am very happy about the results and I feel great. Good luck everyone. I have about 9 lbs more to go to my goal, but once I get there I have to reevaluate and decide if I want to loss more.

Hi everybody, my name is Laurie and I'm in Michigan... i am a gastric bypass patient who has slowly over 4 years regained 30 lbs... I am supposed to take a B12 shot every month, but have not been faithful... i am back on track now, switched from effexor  (which made me an eating machine) back to Prozac... and am determined to religiously take my B12 shot... I have been reading with interest all your posts and must say, you all are being overcharged for your B12.... I take 1000mc, once a month, and at walmart last night i paid $1.25 for the vial and the syringe is free.. get a box of alcohol prep pads and some small circle band aids and you are in business... you can also get your B12 from Canada online, it is $14.99 plus $8 shipping for B12-- 1000mc/10ml (enough for ten months).. i am debating whether to start giving myself the injection every week instead of once a month after reading your posts, will check with my doctor...   for those of you who have never given yourself an injection, it is so easy! and with the money you save, you will be able to buy those smaller clothes you will need!!  good luck everybody, i'll keep you posted.

What a day.....but as promised here are this weeks results:
11/07 - 197.5
11/13 - 191.0
11/20 - 189.0
11/28 - 184.6 (I lost 4.4 pounds) Yea!
12/05 - 186.0 (gained 1.4 pounds) :-(
12/12 - next weight check

Doctor said weight gain was water weight.  She wants me to drink more water this week.  How she knew I had been slacking, I don't know.  Also asked me to do at least 30 minutes of cardio a day.  All things I know but I guess needed to be reminded of.  She has also put me on a water pill to take every other day and gave me in addition to the lipo-tropics shot  another pill to take but I forget the name and my purse is not next to me.  I'll post that tomorrow.

Until then-

I am currently deployed in Iraq, My sister just told me that she has started getting the B12  Shot along with vitamins and she is losing weight rapidly. I have about 4mths before I leave and go home to my Husband and will be going on a cruise. I am not happy with my weight right now and would like to start either taking the Shot or Pills so that I can look good by the time I go home. I would also like to know if there is a place I could go in or near Columbus, Ga or Phenix City, AL? I would greatly appreciate the Info. Thanks!!! Please email me @ Camille.***@****

You go, girl!!  It looks like you're doing awesome!  I started the B12/Lipo shots back in August and averaged around 3 pounds a week.  I began at 189# and I'm now 173#.  I had a couple of things come up with my Thyroid (cancer scare) so I was soooo worried that during the months of October and November I'd gain everything back, but I've done really well!  It really IS all about a lifestyle change and not just a diet... looks like you've caught onto that really well!!  Congrats!!

My initial goal is 150... that's not as scary as 140 LOL!  But I really DO want to make it to 140.  I have a small frame and the extra weight DOES tend to put a stress on my back.  When I think of how heavy a simple 10# bag of potatoes is to carry... and I'm talking 2 bags until I reach the 150, 3 bags until my goal of 140... I've been so hard on my back, the poor thing LOL.

I'll bet you're very happy to be going back home in a few months and a cruise sounds wonderful!  I pray God's protection over you, and thank you for your service!  I know that Columbus is kinda NW Georgia, but I order my B12/Lipo and any other weightloss products online from a place called  mydietsolutions.com and they're in Savannah which I realize is close to the coast but figured you'd have to have them shipped anyway.  I found them to be much cheaper than at the Weight Loss Clinic I was going to locally, and they have a very personal touch... great people!

I had been off my B12+Lipo for about a week and a half while I went through some medical testing and kept the weight off because the diet and exercise had become a way of life for me.  Well, for some unknown reason after hearing I was cancer-free, I decided to binge on colas and junk food.  I only gained about 2 pounds back, but I felt horrible!  So I started up the pills again over the weekend and yesterday I went through a major cleansing period... there's nothing left in the colon LOL!  Today when I woke up my head hurt (like a hangover) but I got up and drank my water and voila!  At least I'm back on track here... it's a journey, but it's soooooooo worth the outcome!  I DID lose another pound, so I'm down needing to lose only 22 more pounds to meet my initial goal of 150!  This is exciting!  I got to looking at my pills and I'm going to need to go online and order some more LOL!

I broke my plateau and today I hit my halfway point to my initial weightloss goal!!!  The B12 sure helps with the energy... I've been extremely stressed out lately and I can tell it helps me keep going.

19 pounds lost, 20 to go until I hit 150!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Everybidy...Had major computer issues and have just been able to get access to the internet.  Anyway, for those who may be following my progress I wanted to give last weeks update.  So here it is:
11/07 - 197.5
11/13 - 191.0
11/20 - 189.0
11/28 - 184.6 (I lost 4.4 pounds) Yea!
12/05 - 186.0 (gained 1.4 pounds) :-(
12/12 - 183.0
12/19 - Next Weigh in

Looks like I am back on track.  Worked out this past week and did increase my water in-take like the doc asked.  I also received a couple compliments this week in reference to sliming down.  I'm hoping to be in the 170's after this next weigh in but will see.

Until Then

Way to go!!!  Looks like you're making fantastic progress!  Now I noticed you're taking the Lipotropics as well as the B12... that's what I'm doing.  What else are you doing?  Do you use an appetite supressant at all?  I've found I honestly don't need one... I'm really surprised at that, because I used to be hungry all the time LOL!!
Again.... KUDOS on the weight loss!!!

Thanks for your comments.  I do take phentermine(sp) 37.5 once a day and I also take a multivitiam.  As of last week I also incorporated a water pill and am trying to do 30 mins. of cardio a day.  Lets see...On my own I stay AWAY from the 3 S's ( NO not sugar...salt...soda) BUT RATHER my Son's School Snacks. I believe that has help a lot.  I can't wait to be in the 170's....I too have a goal weight of 150.

You know... when I started all this in August, the local doctor gave me some natural appetite suppresant, but I can't remember what it was.  I only took it for about 1 week, then decided not to use it.  Then I got to thinking "I go in there and pay $85 for a shot, pills that I don't take, and a very brief visit (if you call a greeting and telling me to be sure to drink water an actual visit) and all I really need is the injection".  That cost doesn't take into consideration the multi-vitamin cost and the Cal-Mag and prescription for Potassium and the blood tests ($75 a pop) that they want you to take after every 15-20 pound loss!  I'm like... dude!  You're getting rich off of me!  LOL
So that's when I thought "You know... I can do the injections myself, it's not rocket science... if I can find the same B12Lipotropics somewhere" and thank goodness I did.   In fact, even found them in pill form for in-between shots or instead of shots when I'm out of town... sweet!  LOL
Best of wishes on keeping of the 3 S's (you know... Son's School Snacks has 3 S's in and of itself LOL).
Blessings!

revins:
Thanks for your comments and suggestions.  I am able through my medical plan only to have to pay a co=pay of 20.00 a month or 5.00 a visit.  So for me money wise this has been the best approach. However if you think I could get my shot and meds cheapper then 20...please let me know where.  Much appriciated.
GQNVA:
I don't order the shots at all. I get them when I visit with my doctor. Sorry.  You should re-post to revins she may be able to help.

As for this weeks UPDATE I went today.  I really wanted to be 179 but I was not by there scale.  I did have my clothes on.  Now that I think about it I should of taken by clothes off then maybe I would of been in the 170's.  Anyway here are the results:
11/07 - 197.5
11/13 - 191.0
11/20 - 189.0
11/28 - 184.6 (I lost 4.4 pounds) Yea!
12/05 - 186.0 (gained 1.4 pounds) :-(
12/12 - 183.0
12/20 - 180.0
1/2008 - Next Weigh in

I am off for the holiday out of town and will not visit with the doctor until I return sometime after the New Year.  So I wish everyone a safe and happy Holiday and start to the new year.

Until Later

It's official i'm back on the wagon today. I had a few personal hiccups causing me not to get my shots for about a month & a half. But today I am back on track. I am starting from the beginning again. I was able to hang on to the previous weight that I did lose. So I am very thankful for that. Best of luck to everyone and theier struggle.

Ok everyone I have a question.

The weight loss clinic I go to in Michigan (real doctors and nurses) is offering a "booster shot" that contains:

*B-Complex
*MIC (amino acids)
*Methionine
*Inositol
*Choline

They also refer to it as a lipo shot, but I don't think it's the same as the lipo shot that has been on the news, etc. I'm wondering if this is th same, or similar to the B-12 shot?

You go, girl!!!  That's so great!!
I've lost, too!!!  I was a size 18 in September and yesterday fit into a 14.  I finally broke through the 170 barrier a week or so ago and this weekend I weighed 167... that's 22 pounds!!  I saw on where they were now carrying B6/B12/Lipo on the mydietsolutions website, so I  changed my injections when I re-ordered.  The B6 is supposed to sustain the energy, and boy it does just that for me... Wow!!  This is going to be a great year!
Best wishes on your doctor's appointment!!

I take B12 + Lipotropics injection for weightloss and it can be taken every 48-72 hours (I've lost 22 pounds on it so far!).  I used to get my injections here locally, but found a doctor online at MyDietSolutions.com that I could buy them by the vial and just inject myself (super easy to do).
As for the plain B12, it can be done once a week.  I know that's how often I did it in college, too, and that was years ago.  It's definitely worth checking into, in my opinion.  I was paying $90 a WEEK to get my injections through the clinic here, and Dr. Gates has my stuff mixed up at a pharmacy and sent to me for a fraction of that cost.
HTH!

There's this clinic I've been going to and it's not as expensive as other places I've read about on here.
It's aprrox. $30/week for the b12 shot, phentermine pills, chromemate, diucaps and water pills.

I'm reposting the same thing I posted at another forum:

IF ANYONE GOES...PLEASE TELL THEM I. NIETO REFERRED YOU. THANK YOU!!!!

La Mirada Weight Loss Clinic. http://www.lmmedicalweightcontrol.com/home.nxg

The clinic is in Whittier, CA about 20 - 25 miles southeast of Los Angeles, CA.

They offer the phentermine, chromemate, diucaps and water pill combination with the b12 shot.  I pay approx. $30/week for a week's worth of pills and the one shot.

They also have massages that stimulates fat and helps you lose weight faster.  
They are open Monday - Saturday and for new patients they are open Monday - Friday until 4:30PM.

I've lost about 5lbs so far in 3 weeks.  Not too many lbs because I'm exercising and building lean muscle and the best thing is my clothes feel great on me. I'm drinking lots of water and eating waaaaaaay better

I started the B12 shots about two weeks ago.  The first week was not good.  I had no energy at all just tired.  The second week I went for my shot, I told the nurse I did not get an effect and I had gained weight.  I was given the B6/B12 complex shot and I did perk up a bit.  A friend of mine is getting the shots at another location and she says she has lots of energy where I was okay not overly energized.  When I weighed in this week I had actually lost 3 pounds.  I weigh myself every morning and I journal the results along with my meals, water intake and exercise.  Hopefully it pays off.  We shall see.  Will keep trying until I reach my goal 165.

Week #1 December 18, 2007   -    205 lbs
Week #2 December 27, 2007   -    207
Week #3 January 3, 2008        -    204

I read in your post that you were going to check out MyDietSolutions.com!!  You won't be disappointed... I am totally amazed at how well I've done.  
I started the B12/Lipotropics here locally and the $$$$ was getting a little out of hand ($90 a week).  So I really prayed about it, and felt led to search online and there was Dr. Gates at MyDietSolutions.  I looked around his site, and then saw that he had an online forum and I thought "Well... that's cool.  Support from a distance."  I didn't even have a support system here at the clinic I went to locally!  No-one to bounce ideas off of... Nada!  So I saw that they had the B12Lipotropics in pill form.  I had been through so much medical stuff the past several years and especially in 2007 that I thought the pills would be a nice break.  I started at 189 pounds in late September... was off the pills for the month of November, but since I had been following Dr. Gates calorie suggestions and was drinking a lot of water and exercising... I didn't gain any weight back!  I KNEW then that it was the real deal.  I went back on the pills in December at 170 pounds then decided to start the injections on December 26th.  I took 2 injections and on the 29th had lost down to 167.6!  I weigh in Saturday (1/5) and can't wait!!!  I've also gone from a 41" (or more) waist to a 36".  I'm totally convinced the stuff works if we do our part (calories, water, 30 minutes or more of exercise).

I didn't feel the energy at first either, but the doctor and others told me that most likely my body was in such distress that it pretty much devoured the B12 like a man in the desert would a glass of ice water LOL!!  Great mental picture for me at the time.  Adding the B6 into the mix definitely gave me a kick in the pants!  I love it!!!  It's good stuff and the Lipotropics definitely pushes the carbs and fats on through.......

Okay, I had my first visit at the weight loss clinic this morning.  They only give plain B12 injections monthly and phentermine (month's supply) $95 for both and the visit (which was a total of 4 or 5 minutes).  They do not offer the B12 w/lipotropics.  I'll give this a try then explore mydietsolutions.  

revins, good luck on your weigh in, you've done great so far!

Revins, you are absolutely right.  The more lean muscle mass you have the more fat burning you will experience.  The diet and exercise part of the program is so important to really see the results that you are looking for.  The patients that we see are having tremendous weight loss results because not only do they receive a weekly Vit B12 injection and lipotropics but they are taught how to eat the right foods to increase their metabolism. You should be consuming at least 10 oz of protein per day to kick start your metabolism.  You should also eat a protien breakfast every morning like egg beaters, egg whites etc.  Also, consuming smaller frequent meals throughout the day with lean protiens and healthy vegetables and fruits are the best way to increase your metabolism.   I work with patients every day at Success by Design, Medical Weight Loss Center, Dr. Debra Figueroa and see amazing results in our patients that are following the nutrition plan designed for them and also exercising with weight training.  B12, Lipotropics, Appetite Suppressants (phendimetrazine) all are tools to help patients get kick started in weight loss but ultimately, patients will plateau if they don't follow the diet plan and exercise.  Good Luck to You!  If you have any questions or would like more information check out our website at www.poundsaweightampabay.com

Thanks for the kudos!!!!
I'm DOWN another 1.8 POUNDS!!!  This stuff is soooo working.  Plus like the RN poster said, you've got to have the protein in there along with a good exercise plan.  The B12 is great for the energy a dieter needs, but the Lipotropics and another one called Lipoden are absolutely awesome for seeing results.

Audreyrose88...
If you don't mind using the internet, and want a really reputable Doc... then Dr. Gates is awesome.  There's also an online support group there that's just like family... they're great.  There are blogs on there that have pictures and interviews with Dr. Gates and his staff that is kinda like bring the Doc into your home.  He's a very honest and humble man... someone I could trust.  If you're interested in seeing his site/products he's at:   www.mydietsolutions.com
Best of wishes to you, and have a great weekend!!!

If you're OK with giving yourself the shot or having a friend that's a nurse give it to you (it's really easy to do!) you can go to www.MyDietSolutions.com and order it directly from Dr. Gates.  It's definitely a safe website... just re-ordered myself!

I am going to use this forum as my crutch to help me through. I will be posting here weekly if anybody would like to become success partners at this I am game. I would love to loose my 47.5lbs by May 20th, 2008 which is my 28th birthday. I am very confident about being able to achieve this goal. I have been eating 2 egg's for breakfast, 1/2 a chicken breast lighly seasoned with salt and pepper along with a 5.5oz V/8 for lunch, a protein shake for snack and 1/2 chicken breast lighly seasoned with salt and pepper or Tuna along with another V/8 for dinner. I am consuming at least 80oz of water a day. No butter, oil, coffee, treats, etc. I am walking on the treadmill at a speed of 3.7 with an incline of 3 for 20 minutes daily. If anybody has any other advice for me I will definetly take it. Thanks and I'll be back soon!!!

Getting my first shot on Thursday and can't wait - but i don't want to drastically change my eating and alcohol consumption.  I know for me to loose the maximum I need to change alot of things - but not just yet and I can live with that for now.  Knowing I don't want to go down that road, yet, has anyone had any adverse affects of drinking alcohol and taking the B12 shot?  Not loosing weight as fast, at all, etc.?

Hey, i'm new to the forum, and looking forward to my first appt on Monday the 28th. I'm still sick from a cold, but getting better...i was wondering if any of you know if it's ok to still start on Monday with the shots/phentermine while still having a cold?

I've tried everything! From la weightloss to Jenny Craig. I'm 5'6 and probably 188 on a good day..my goal is to be 150 and MAYBE 145. Seems like a dream to me....:)

2nd weight in yeasterday (Sat. 01/26/08) and I lost another 4 lbs. All together I have lost 15.6 lbs in my first 2 weeks. I am very happy with this result because to loose 15.6 lbs in the most stressful two weeks of my life is pretty amazing. (Finding out that the person you love, have been with for over 3 years, live together and have a baby together has been cheating on you is pretty hard to stay focused), but I did it! I have been battling for the past 9 days on what to do which has really effected my by not being able to work out or eat right. Anyways enough excusses I am still happy about my progress! Good luck everybody and just remember that if I can do it with what I have been going through (and I'm the type of person to eat when I am stressed) then anybody can do it!

Start Weight: 01/12/2008   5'5"   182.6 lbs

Hi there ! I just got my first B12 shot on Friday and I must say I felt pretty good! I was just wondering if anyone out there has a hypothyroid? I havent been able to lose weight for 2 years now and I exercise like crazy and I've joined weight watchers twice ....I already eat between 1000 to 1200c per day, no refined sugar or flour...I gained 12 pounds in three months and Im so frustrated ...I was taking synthroid but I swear thats what made me gain so now Im seeing a natural doctor for my thyroid so hopefully that will help too! So my question is has anyone had luck with the shots that has an under active thyroid??   This is such a great forum !!! It really gives me lots and lots of hope!!! :)

Hey ya'll!

I've just started B-12 injections (along with a host of other vitamins from my doc) this week.  Her diet is a radically modified Atkins.  Doing good thus far this week, even with the DONUTS someone brought to work.  Oh temptation!!!!!  Luckily the boxes were empty.  Yes, I looked.  Bad dieter!  Thankfully they were gone.

I go Friday for another shot this week.  It's two shots a week for a month then reevaluation.  I'm hoping to ditch the baby and Effexor (I really hate that drug) weight that has not left and then added to in the last few months.  And I mean I've put on over 10 pounds since September while going to the gym and *trying* to diet for myself.  Wasn't working, so here I am.

Stats as of Jan 28:
4'10"
144 pounds

Goal is 120 or less.  
I want to be slimmer for my beach trip on my birthday in mid March, anything below 140 is most welcome, don't expect miracles, just weight loss!!!!

Wow!

Hello Everyone,

I'm really glad I found this site. Okay I'm a 27 yr old mother of two that put on quite a few
( 30) pound after my second child and needed a lil help. I decided to do the lipo dissolve along with the weight management program. I had my first session of lipo dissolve on 1-30-08 and so far I dont think it was worth it but I have to give it at least two more weeks. I started the weight loss program which includes B-12 and phentermine and I can feel the difference in my energy level. On 1-30-08 I weighed in at 158 and my goal is 125. So wish me luck .

I am so excited about this achievement that I'm on cloud nine right now. This week was exceptionally hard because I was not able to get to the gym (just think if I would have). As far as all of you who have read my last comment about my personal issue me and my husband have decided to completely put all of this behind us so I am saying that I will not discuss it from this point forward with anybody. I thank the people who have given me support on this issue. I love him and he loves me and people make mistakes in thier life sometimes its whether they learn from those mistakes and never make them again. I wish everybody the best of luck on thier weight loss and I look forward to coming back next week and posting that I lost 4 more pounds because that would put me at my 1/2 way point in just a month (my goal is 46 pounds total).

Start Weight: 01/12/2008   5'5"   182.6 lbs

Woo Hoo!!!

4'10"
Stats on Jan 28:   144 pounds
Stats on Feb 4:    137 pounds

WOO HOO!!!!  I think I celebrate with a cup of tea and a cookie...not.  Well the tea and maybe some celery.  Had a hard time this weekend with cravings and being a tad bit sick with a cold and missed my dang Effexor on Sunday which ALWAYS gives me a headache.  Should have known, but didn't realize it until this morning.

Revised Goal for beach trip in Mid March is to be somewhere under 130.  That's 7 pounds in about 5 weeks.  That would be SWEET!!!!

I've been taking the B6/B12/Lipotropics and am down 25.6 pounds!  I was so glad to find something that works and so much safer than some other things out there... after reading a few articles on some of them... I was scared senseless!  Everyone has to find their own system that works I guess, but I'm so glad I decided to google these injections and came across them online.  If anyone ever needs to order online in the future just FYI, mydietsolutions is a safe place.  I was so scared to order online, but it turned out really well.  
My husband takes the B12 by itself and really helps him as a Basketball referee.
Everyone's weightloss is looking really good!!!   Congrats!!!!!!

I take them usually every 72 hours (they can be taken 48-72 hours apart) and I've been taking them since Dec. 26th.  I love them.  I tried, literally, so many diet plans and shakes and junk that I was sick.  The B6/B12/Lipotropics have actually made a huge difference in the way I feel and the way I look... I'm very pleased!  And ordering online isn't as scary as I thought it would be, because their office is very, very helpful.

Hi everyone !  I just got back from the doc's office..I just got my first shot! And i took my first dosage of phentermine (sp?) . I feel different, I dont wanna sit still & I cant stop drinking water. Is this normal? And anyone who goes to Dr. Gupta's office in Greenbelt, do you ever see the doctor when you go for your appointments? And do you follow the plan that they give you, or do something else..b/c I was planning on doing South Beach or something like that cause the plan they give me sounds really dumb. Send me a msg or something :-) Oh yea:

To: BringingSexyBack good for you... hopefully I'll be able to produce such results...

Hello All

I am a 22 yr recent college grad living in Philly who has gained what my boyfriend thinks is 30 pounds in the 3 yrs we've dated. I am now somewhere above 185 (my last weight amount 6 mos ago) Tonight is my first appt for a B12 shot and I cannot sit still. I come from a family of large women and I although I love my curves, however,I do not enjoy my rolls and folds, dimples and jiggles. From everyone's testimonials on here, I have found a doctor, gained confidence to actually go to the appointment, and essentially lose weight. My goal is 30-40 lbs as I would like to feel good in my clothes and wear a (dare I say it) bikini this spring on my vacation in Miami for Memorial Day weekend. I work hard and love hard, and feel I deserve to not only look good but feel good. Exercise and dieting have only helped me to lose up to 5 pounds but with the B12 shot in addition to exercising and eating right I am sure I could achieve my goals and then some. I'll keep everyone updated throughout my journey.

I am new here and just started the diet this past week.  I am taking the Lipo and B12 shots with Phetermine (1 pill a day, tomorrow I start 2 pills per day).

Is anyone not exercising and not changing their diet drastically?  And have you lost significant weight?  I asked a woman at the clinic if I would still lose weight regardless but maybe not as fast.  I have read the entire blog but not finding anyone who fits this scenario.  I don't overeat and I don't eat many foods high in fat as part of my normal diet already.

I work 8-12 hours days and am beat most nights, although I will do some light housework when I get home and am more active on weekends.

Starting: 5'6" at 164 lbs. (small? to medium built)
Goal: 5'6" at 135-145 lbs.
Med Charts state at Medium Built I should be 135-145

Responses would be greatly appreciated.

To comment on your question, I think everybody's body is different. I was on this same diet over 2 years ago and lost 27lbs in 4 months (I know that doesn't sound that great) but the great part was that I did it effortless! I mean I litterly ate whatever I wanted, drake sodas and didn't exercise. At that time I started at 181 and got down to 154. The only reason why I am back on the diet and ended up gaining the weight back was because 5 months after I lost all the weight I got pregnant and had a baby 18 months ago. Since the baby was born not only did I not try to lose the weight (at least not seriously) but I was packing on more by eating so much rice and plantains. So there is an example of how you can loose 27lbs in 4 months effortless on this diet; OR you can take the approach I am CURRENTLY doing and that is I have been eating 2 egg's for breakfast with my coffee and half and half, 1/2 a chicken breast lighly seasoned with salt and pepper along with a 5.5oz V/8 for lunch, and 1/2 chicken breast lighly seasoned with salt and pepper or Tuna along with another V/8 for dinner. I am consuming at least 80oz of water a day. No butter, oil, coffee, treats, etc. I am walking on the treadmill at a speed of 3.7 with an incline of 3 for 20 minutes at least 3 times a week. AND BY DOING THIS I LOST 19LBS AT MY LAST WEIGH IN WHICH WAS THE 3 WEEK MARK, NOW I JUMPED ON MY HOME SCALE LAST NIGHT AND IT LOOKS LIKE I HAVE LOST ANOTHER 3+ LBS THIS WEEK BUT I WILL KNOW TOMORROW WHEN I GO FOR MY WEIGH IN. POINT IS THAT I HAVE LOST AT LEAST 22LBS+ IN 4 WEEKS AND I HAVEN'T EVEN EXERCISED AT ALL IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS (NOT BY CHOICE THOUGH, BECAUSE OF STRESS). SO AS YOU CAN SEE THE RESULTS ARE FAR BETTER WITH DIET AND EXERCISE. GIRL YOU ARE PAYING ALL THIS MONEY FOR THE DIET, TAKE ADVANTAGE AND LOOSE THE WEIGHT QUICKER TO GET IT OVER WITH AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF BY SUMMER. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU!!!

I have never had any trouble sleeping or going to sleep, maybe it's because I have 2 kids one being a baby that keeps me busy, a full-time job and a house to constantly have to pick up. I do have the high enery effects which are great. Good luck KDK22

I saw the diet plan last night at my appt and I could not believe my eyes. I have never eaten that way. To anyone who is going thaat route what kinds of results are you seeing. I plan to follow closely to the diet plan and taking a pilates class 1x per week. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

To the woman who mentioned  sleep issues: I dreamt vividly all night, tossing and turning but this was my first time on the shot and I had not yet taken the Phentermine pill. I danced for 20 minutes start when I got home from my appt...talk about energy!

I just got my shot yesterday..I felt soo energetic when I got home too & I didnt wanna sit down. And when I took the pill for the first time, I felt jittery and my heart was racing a bit. But today I don't have those problems..but I do feel a lot better than normal. Its almost 4pm here, and I'm usually tired..but I feel fine! Hope your symptoms go away :-)

Thanks Losingwieght....OMG I had an awesome weekend... I had way more energy than ever before and I have adjusted to the Phentermine very well. It completely cuts my appetite so well sometimes I forget to eat. The jittery feeling and racing heart have gone away thank goodness! lol I have my weigh in on Valentine's Day and although I have yet to exercise I know I've lost something due to my new eating habits with the diet plan the doctor gave me and all this energy I have. I haven't any trouble getting out of bed and I think that's my favorite trait of the B12 shot thus far! How's it going for you Losing weight?
