and i wish to loose 15 lbs..
anyone here sailing in the same boat?!
sharin our stories shud help us get the
motivation we desperately need!also
hoping to make friends heree....
Started yesterday and made numerous trips to the loo. Today seems to be some what better. No sick feeling or any thing.
Before taking the Z3 this morning I drank about 8 ounces of water first and then an additional 8 with the capsules - I guess this was to coat my stomach.
Additional caps (2) taken at lunch...still feeling fine.
Today I am dosing with single pills only. Had one this morning with a big glass of water, then half of a myoplex for breakfast.
No major upset tummy like yesterday.
I just took my 2nd pill and am having a little bit of a niacin reaction. My breathing gets a little shallow for a few moments (that happened yesterday too with my 2 pill dose). I am also feeling warmer! Not hot and itchy though, just a little warm.
Will be eating lunch soon though. Overall I feel pretty good.
Okay, second dose has been down for a little over 30 minutes and no ill effects! I will eat something soon, but this stuff really does a number on my appetite and makes it nil... but I know the importance of eating, so i will get something down. Will take my CarbFX in about an hour as well... one more single pill of the Z3 later today... will keep you posted So far so good
Today is my first day on Z3. When I took the dose this am, 1 pill, I thought I would regret it. I got this sour taste in my mouth and felt sick to my stomach, for about 20 minutes. I drank a full glass of water, 32 oz cup, 1/2 full of ice. I got over the sick feeling, after eating (Kashi cereal with dried rasberries/gogurt)
I did get tired, lazy/sleepy. After I went out to run errands, I "woke up". Other than that, I have had a good day. I didn't have a problem with the second dose.
I am 5'5" have about 140lbs to lose. I hope that this can help me get started. I just needed something to give me energy and take the edge off.
I would appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thank you. Sincerely,
Well I have to say that 2 days in (and reducing my dose a little) that I have no cravings at all. I don't notice much of a change in my energy level. I did notice a change yesterday with the 2 pill dose but it did a number on my stomach so I'll just deal with single pill dosing for the first week and then see where this goes.
Will start back on my elliptical trainer next week and start walking at lunch. Then in week 3 I will add weight training to the mix.
I went and bought a bottle, started taking it on 6/2/03 (monday). Took one pill 20 minutes before breakfast and another one before lunch. I haven't had any side effects but have definetly started loosing weight
I am 5'4"
6/2 212.50 lbs
6/3 211 lbs
6/4 208 lbs
I am so excited to have found this board and zantrax-3
