Day One

Day One started at 7:39 a.m. when I took my first Adipex-P pill. Literally one hour later I was feeling the effects. Speed, anyone. ;-)

I can't say it was jitters, or racing heart—just a "rushed" feeling and a little irritability (sorry Chris). I've gone from typing 75 WPM to about 175! ;-P

No hunger, even though I haven't eaten since dinner last night. I have had 2 cups of coffee, reaching for my third here in a few minutes. Like I said in a previous post, I may have to switch to decaf! (Sorry again, Chris!) Here's the timeline for day one:

7:39 took the first "magic" pill

8:45 very energetic, almost manic. :-P, a little irritable (though that was probably caused by a needy toddler)

11:15 not so manic, but definitely very energized. I feel like I could do about a zillion things at once right now and my typing has never been so fast. Don't feel hungry at all, but I have had 3 cups of coffee and about 40+ ounces of water.

12:15 ok, now I'm feeling a rumbly in my tumbly. Grrr... Maybe the appetite suppressant portion of Adipex takes longer to kick in?

3:30 the growling tummy has been intermittent. Not to bad, just a little irksome. I'm now having my first diet Pepsi of the day. I don't feel edgy, jittery, or too wired. Still have some good energy, however.

5:45 more irritability. It's hard to know if it's the Adipex, the kids, or both! Either way, I'm a little grumpy right now. :-( Still haven't eaten, though, and I haven't found that 30 minutes to work out. With a t-ball game to go to, dinner to be had, etc., it's not looking good for today. I have, however, had 3, 32-ounce glasses of water (which means I've peed a lot).

8:00 after Zachary's t-ball game, went to dinner. Did end up eating, after talking to Ivonne. I had 1/2 of a ceviche tostada, minus the tostada. Basically I had some fish, cilantro, lime and tomato, with a 1/2 tsp of guacamole. And I only ate half of it. Pretty darn good! Ok, I did have a margarita. Not so good. But I still managed to go through the day with

  • no snacking
  • no sugar soda
  • over 90 oz of water
  • only healthy food at 1 meal (margaritas are not a food :-p )
9:30 ready for bed. One of the side effects of Adipex is supposed to be insomnia. We'll see...I'm feeling pretty tired. I wonder if they tested this stuff on parents with small children!

198 today,

I slept like a baby! Actually, I haven't had that good a night's sleep in awhile. Let's see how it goes tonight. I'm hoping more of the same. It's 8:45 p.m. and I'm pretty tired.
